too cold to be creative!!!

I went to the studio today to get in a whole day of creativity..... it was sooooooooooooooooooooooo cold in there I lost feeling in my fingers!!!!! lol ... tshirt, fleece top (with the hood up), scarf, and as a last resort my new (yummy) lime green quilted gillet (I didn't want to put it on 'cos I didn't want to get it dirty but it was soooo cold I had to) and I was STILL cold (fingers and toes!)... so I gave up and came home! The studio electric heater seems to have died- may it RIP. M has been and bought a new heater for the studio and its very cute and very reliable but will only heat one area at a time so I think we may need a big bad-ass heater!!
But please don't think the studio is totally without comfort - we have heating... we just have to remember to turn it on (and off) (its a cost thing)!! But believe me, its now on! so now when we go in tomorrow it'll be lovely and toasty!
(but just in case I'm putting on a few extra layers! lol and I may go and invest in some, currently very trendy, fingerless gloves/arm warmers!!)

'The Big One'

This month's ArtyATCs - 24 of them!! 72 stamped images, 72 flowers, 48 diamantes and the word 'nature' punch-taped 24 times (much to Ms annoyance!!)(he suffers for my art! lol ) and here they are..............(well some of them anyway!) and in the top left corner is the co-ordinating card (sorry for the reflections on the cards - they were all in protective sleeves ready for sending) (I created the ATCs by using a big image that could then be cut in half - the Dragonfly stamp (gorgeous) was ideal for this.)
