I'm b-a-a-a-a-a-ck

.... did you miss me, hehehehe!!! Okay, maybe no-one noticed but I was in Cape Town for two days last week, which stole just about ALL my crafting time. I am definitely planning on catching up this afternoon. I've done all my DIY around the house, on that topic, is it just me who always have things around the house to fix, or do the rest of you also do, or is it the fact that there is no man here to do it for me?? That might be it, LOL!

I have something a little unusual today, Daisy Lamp, from Stamping Bella. I'm not sure if it's a lamp or a pot plant gone wrong, but it's funky and fun, and once in a while it's great to do something unusual. For me at least.

I coloured the image with prisma pencils and blended it with sansador, then cut it with my nesties and layered it on 3D foam. I was not planning on using a green / blue combo, but when I started looking for card stock to go with my design paper I saw there was a little bit of blue in the DP. I only then added the blue to the lamp shade and voila, a blue and green card. And I must say, I really like it.

I have a busy week ahead of me. My mom is away on holiday (again :-)), which usually means I have so much more to do at home, especially when it comes to food. No-one to cook me dinner, damn, and I so looove the kitchen - NOT.

I think I might have to steal a little of my crafting time for a 30 minute nap. I didn't sleep well last night, my house alarm went off about an hour after I went to bed. Boy did it confuse me when I woke. Well of course I got the fright of my life, as it could only mean that someone is breaking into my house! But luckily that wasn't the case, I think it must've been a moth or something that set the sensor off. I was never afraid if my alarm went off, but since my house was robbed, while I was sleeping upstairs, I get really scared. My poor little heart just about jumps right out of my chest. It's not fun at all.

Anyhow, enough of my waffling, all is okay, and I am off to practice my bow and knot tying. I just watched the videos Linda has linked up on her chat box, and it is oh so helpful!
