Nope, still nothing...

I am sitting here, yawning, trying to think of a heading that conveys a) my excitement, b) the fact that  I have two new Lo's to share for different DT's and c) show off my incredible wit (!!). Absolutely  nothing... will have to think more and hopefully have something more than 'Two new challenges' as my lead out...

Ok, trying hard to pull two words together because it is a double good day for me. My lovely old DT Another freaking Scrappy challenge and my brand new spot on the DT of Child's Play both have new challenges up today.

First The Child's Play challenge - one close to my heart because this was one craft I loved as a child (yep, hated most others to be honest). Spirograph!! It seemed like magic when it worked properly, mmm pretty circles. 
And I was most excited to pick up a free action from Sugar Butt designs to add to my LO.


This week, the challenge on Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge is a sketch





This is such a cool sketch - the possibilities are endless - you just have to see the girls work on the site to see that - so very good!! I went for a fairly straight interpretation - straight lines I am incapable of doing of course...




Henry and I had a spare day during the last holidays and popped into the Glassworks, they had a visiting expert and it was hypnotic watching them work. We stayed for the best part of an hour watching a vase being blown - this is unheard of for a 9yo boy - it helped that it is so nice and warm and the viewing benches allow for wandering children...

Geoff and his friend were going to go skiing today but the weather is vile so we have a visitor for the next couple of days- but I will continue to pack.

Please come and play with both challenges, maybe even combine them - all ok!!

Gee, that spirograph takes me back. I always wanted one - parents could never afford it - my best friend had one that I was 'allowed' to play with sometimes!! Oh, the joys of childhood. NOT!!! That's what I like about your LOs, now you've mentioned it. The un-straight lines. I LOVE un-straight lines. Trying to think up a clever title but nothing here, either...still, this one got me in 'cos I wondered what was going on!!! Hopefully spring warmth will slowly seep down to Canberra:):) Pack away.....
