Room One 4 & 650...

...Hey! You will NEVER guess what!!!!!!!!!!! I am posting my 650th blog post!!!!!!!! Blimey, that is one heck of a lot of waffling...and...one heck of a lot more art LOL ... So what's this Room One 4 lark then? Well, not wanting to be left behind *ok, admitting I like to copy...* I decided to call the new Room of Stash "Room One 4"... whatcha fink? Pretentiousness or coolioness? Honest answers pleasings LOL




I escaped! Yep, I managed to smuggle myself and a few essential stashy things out of the house yesterday morning - and wended my way to Wantage to the Stamp Attic, where Wendy, Sarah Anderson and Ruby and Wendy2 were all there waiting for me - I was late as usual, road works, slow lorries, speed camera's (only joking, as if I would make Ferdy go too fast ROFL) Anyways, we had a lovely natter, shared some cake and sausage rolls and coffee..and then got cracking with the new Tim Alterations...OMG, I neeeeed all of them!!! I snuck off into a corner with the bird cage one and ran it thru a Bug with some Grungepaper and then splodged it with Distress Inks and Wendy Vecchi stamps - I kept birdy out of the cage - he looks sad behind those bars, I reckon.




So, I used some Rock Candy Cracklepaint on the tag, more Studio 490 stamps...and then went and bodged it right at the last minute when I stamped the sentiment on...wonky! I always seem to stamp wonky for some reason...*maybe it's me that be wonky!!* I had such a FAB time yesterday - so thank you to Wendy for the invite and Sarah and Ruby for making me feel like I have known them for yonks! I made another tag too but that is still waiting to be PaintShopped - am still sitting with the lappy on my knee, still not unpacked a thing in the new craft room - I am so bad! I have, however, been and done the bedroom, I did that brilliant tidying up thing...I shoved all the boxes into my wardrobe and shut the doors - just don't tell Grim, he thinks I was a goodly wifey and unpacked them all ROFL Alfie had his first trip into the garden this afternoon....and promptly squeezed himself under the decking and then led me a merry dance prancing about and being daft, so he is back inside and sulking now - he has a new collar tag - which is a golden disc - Grim said that the purple heart wasn't boyish enough for him (Alfie not Grim, erm...actually......LOL) We have shopped today - new curtains and nets, just got to get them up now... if I can get to the windows I will do them...boxes piled up still...HELP!!!! That's all from me for now...I need my bed (yep, the tidy one LOL) but before I whizz off...don't forget tomorrow is the last day to join in with the Sunday Stamper mega candy giveaway! we have had over 100 comments combined on the two weeks so ... I will be adding in some stash as a pressie too :O)) And... sorry I ain't had chance to visit you all, I will catch up, I know I keep saying it but I will....promise :O) TTFN.....

Omg, I love that die! I've just got the old Star Trek saying in my head "resistance is futile" - must have been ahead of it's time as it clearly is talking about all the new Tim Holtz dies!
Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend.
Hugs

Tess said...

I love reading your blog because I really have no idea what half the words mean but they all seem so cool...I want to say "wonky" all of the time!! That will be my new word. My kids will think I've gone daft. What does that mean anyway?! LOL I love that word, "wonky", and "daft" too! Oh and your tag is fabulous. I like the bird outside of the cage.
Happy Day, Tess

Room One 4 . . . I like it . . . I think it's coolio *smiles*. Love the bird creation as well!

Lynn Stevens said...

Welcome back Hels! And a cool creation you came up with. I bought that birdcage die cut for a dear friend if mine. You have no idea how hard it was giving it away. I made her promise to cut me some! LOL. I like the new name for your studio! or maybe even call it "Studio One 4" . habve a great weekend!

julie m said...

oh, hels, this is the best yet. i also need to have this die... and the winged heart, and the butterfly. and then the embossing folders will finally come out and i definitely need most of those too. must clean out my space to make some room.
room one 4 sounds so posh. or maybe studio one 4 ( a la wendy)!

TinaB said...

Stunning tag Hels xxx I want them all too lol! xx

Daniele said...

At last I know that I am in good company as I never seem to get sentiments straight as well....I do sympathise with you with packing boxes every where for some reason it seems that its quicker packing than unpacking.At least you managed to escape for a few hours to produce another great piece of art even if its "wonky" could start a new fashion.
hugs from Daniele

Love this artwork Hels, glad to hear that you've managing to get a bit more sorted. Sounds as though you had a fantastic time with your friends, have a good weekend, and congrats with getting over 100 comments, fantastic.

Crissi Harvey said...

love your tag that die is on my want list, Room one 4 is cool but i do like what the Lynn and julie have been saying about studio one glad your getting sorted

Joanne said...

I think room one 4 sounds great. It's one for crafting in LOL. So wanted to join in your challenge but just can't get the piccy to jump into my sidebar or blog post. All that tuition with my 'computer Dave' last week was wasted!! I'm useless. Never mind eh? xx

Sandy said...

Wow this Tag is absolutely unique and beautiful. So many great techniques. Love it.

Have a sunny weekend hun.

Kim Piggott said...

Hi Hels, where is the unpacking fairy? Love the tag, it's gorgeous, I'm still waiting for my die, sigh! Have a lovely weekend, Judith x

whyducks said...

Such a wonderful tag Hels. Please can we see a picture of Alfie in his new home. I am always wonky too, I just cannot, whatever I do, cut straight, or stamp straight. Maybe if we both stood on one leg when we are crafting, things would straighten up!(but mind your back!) My husband says if it wasn't wonky people wouldn't know it was from me! x

Rosie said...

I have a suggestion - for every general house box you unpack, you get to unpack one in your stash room. Soon have the job done!! Why is the room not NUMBER ONE (ie as the most important place in the house)????
Love the tag - might NEED that die too ...

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Fabulous tag hun :) hehe just read Tess's comment - pity Google doesn't translate English into American English ROFL ;)

Perhaps that should've been English slang :)

Helen said...

I love that die too. In fact all of them - and they really don't damage the bug? Looks like you all had a fab time, I saw Wendy's posts. YUM YUM all round!

Ruby said...

Hi Hels! It was so FAB to meet you too!!! It honestly did feel like I'd known you for ages! You too, made me feel very welcome! Your work is absolutely stunning! Glad you kept your bird out of the cage, it always makes me sad too! Love Room One 4, sounds cool to me! Hope to get to meet up again soon for another play date! x

Wendy said...

Hello you......thank you so much for coming over, I had a wonderful day. You girls are a bundle of laughs and great artists, it was a very inspiring day all round. I am looking forward to coming to have a mooch around Room One 4 too. We need another play date very soon xx

Ali Manning said...
