Ooooodles of Nooodles...

...Did ya miss me???? I missed you.. actually, I really did... hey, it was FAB to see loads of peeps at the Ally Pally show but I missed my blogging and hoppety-hopping about Blogosphere... I should have taken Lionel (the lappy) with me but forgot... oooops! Anyways... Make & Takes... I had some off cut bits of Grungepaper and ever the Scrooge, I decided to see what I could do with them... some of the bits were only a few cm's wide... so, I snipped the thinnest little strip off and coloured with DI.. then wrapped it around my pokey tool and curled it... then popped it behind some flowers... at first these looked FAB... like a curl of wire... and then when I was walking to the car they got rained on and went a bit... erm... strange lol Anyways... I have devised a way of getting them to set into a curl... I have done the pokey tool-curly thing and then... sprayed them with hairspray... yes, it works LOL So... I am sitting there this afternoon with these little tags pinned across my top and I kept asking everyone if they liked my nooodles... I got some very strange looks until I explained that nooodles is what I am calling these little curls of GP... cos they look a bit like... erm... noodles ROFL *sort of, if you squint a bit!!* So... whatcha fink??? I am so going to be using these on EVERYTHING lol






And an announcement...TRUE! FACT! REALITY! I have finally... LOST THE PLOT!!! There I was sitting there... I must have talked the hind leg off a dozen donkeys and I was trying to think of different ways of giving the verbal instructions for the GP flowers... anyways... I says to one of the Make & Takers... curl the Grungepaper petals like you would if you were rolling a bogey.... good job she's known me for several years...and has a strong stomach LMAO I have an excuse... I think I had dehydrated from all the yakking you know... it was a bit warm in there and I was being deprived of oxygen cos I haven't got the hang of breathing and talking at the same time ROFL...



I did have a *ahem* minor mishap with a button and some Superglue... doh! I popped the glue onto the button and then went to stick it on... instead of putting glue onto flower and popping button on top... the button came off eventually... taking several layers of skin with it... **ouchhhhhhh** and the dear lady who had made the flower was ever so gracious and said she didn't mind taking away a sample of my DNA on her Make & Take LOL Anyways... I am serious need of a lovely long snoozle in my own bed tonight, hotels is ok but it isn't the same... Mr Blogger is doing his Error 503 thing again...soooooo annoying... so I shall say TTFN... oh... and if you did go to AP... whatcha buy? Go on... do tell.. I was soooo good and the only things I bought were... a tuna roll and a strawberry slush puppie! *polishes halo!!* TTFN (again!)

Love these noodles, Hel!

Love the noooodles. And that's exactly how I tell people to curl grungepaper, everyone seems to understand, 'cause they nod their head, like, oh yeah.... (so apparently it's not just you and I that understand this, lol!) A boogey is universal, everyone's got 'em.

Yay, you're back! Love the noodles on the flowers, very creative and miserly!! It did make me laugh because I have this tendency to keep really small offcuts in the belief that they will do perfectly for something!! How did you manage to do AllyPally and buy nothing but a couple of snacks???

Val said...

Mad or what - love it - and the flowers.
Hugs, Valxx

Jo said...

You made me laugh about the noodles on your chest! Reminds me of when I was at a posh do with a low cut dress on and someone said they loved my Yorkshire Puddings! Please do talk and breathe at the same time, otherwise we would miss you!
