Its half term at the moment and I'm catching up with bits and pieces which is good but its been hampered slightly by:
- Our main pc is a little the worse for wear and so a nice man has taken it away to (hopefully) make it better.. (you know how computer help lines always tell you to turn the machine off and on again - well ours was doing that all my itself!!! ggrrrr) and the laptop doesn't have a seperate mouse (just one of those plate thingies in front of the keyboard - aaaargh I just can't get on with those - I need a mouse!! lol)
- I've run out of glue sticks - how is that posible - I was sure I had a load in a drawer somewhere but apparently not! I discovered its quite hard to craft without a glue stick - and not just any old glue stick - a Tombow glue stick - love Tombow but dislike that its not overly widely available.. I've been online and bought 6 sticks - I almost bough 10 but decided this may have been a bit obesssive! lol
Hubby arranged these - he never does things by half!! These balloons couldn't be any bigger or pinker could they!! lol v v fab - but Bertie & Lola are a little unsure about them - especially as they have bells on (the balloons not the cats! lol)
There was the first of 2 ArtsyCrafts weekends - which was really good - lots of lovely ladies making lots of lovely stuff... The projects were really really nice - The ladies who are going to Warrington this weekend are in for a real treat. I'll post photos once the second weekend is done & dusted.
I downloaded the NewYork photos (loved New York!) ready for the pc going to be repaired - here are a few photos (there are soooo many I can't show you them all - and I'm sure you've got better things to look at on the internet than my holiday snaps! lol)
I took this photo down on the Lower East side - love the peeling posters (the posters might even have been painted on). This was near the Tenement Museum - if you go to NY you really HAVE to go there. The museum is just wonderful - its been put together with such care, love and attention that its a definite must see. The guide who took us round almost reduced me to tears twice. Very moving. This one tenement building had 7000, yes SEVEN THOUSAND occupants over a 50 year period!! Can you imagine! That works out to be, on average, 140 new people through in each year!! 10 approx a month!! I have trouble getting my head round those numbers!
Well thats all for today (got to go feed the car (yes the car) & then catch the shops before they close) - tomorrow I might have some creative bits to show you! ... but I'm not making any promises! lol
