Curiously Resisted...

...oooh, I have been playing with Christmas stuff... and... actually enjoyed it!!! I know, it is only October, but I am deffo going to stay organised you know... so, it is time for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge again... devised and hosted by the wonderfully talented and lovely Linda... if you click on her name there is a magic train waiting to take you across the Blogasphere to see all the deets about how to enter etc.



In keeping with the challenge, I am not saying how I made the "challengey bit" of my tag... and for some reason I cannot get a photo of it without it flashing back at me... so excuse the pics please :O)) All the stashy bits on the tag are from the Tim Holtz collection - Grungeboard, Idea-ology, Distress Inks - the usual LOL





Isn't it cold??? Last night there was a tidge of excitement at Chez HelsGrim... because it was so cold and crisp out there, the moon was really bright and it had a really twinkly star next to it... so Grim has this swizzy new phone that you just look at and it does as you command... and on it is an App... think it is called that, I haven't quite reached the Smart Age yet... my phone is steam powered... anyways... this here App... how clever, you look at it and it does something swizzy and gets this picture on it of the constellations and stuff... and the bright twinkly star is... Jupiter! So, I have seen a planet... oh how I wanted it to be Uranus... but apparently, according to the Patrick Moore of phones, Uranus couldn't be seen because the moon was so bright. I thought about getting a Smart Phone... well, for about ten seconds and then realised that it would be A) wasted on me cos I am thick and B) take up too much of my time because there is a game on there called Angry Birds and I played it for about five mins the other day and got totally foxed... children of six could, I am sure, manage to get the birds to hit the pigs, but for me... nope, nada... so not happening! Right, I had better get a wiggle on... I have a visitor coming to play today and I need to get the other desk cleared ready for her ... I am thinking... a black bag, cram the stuff into that and sling it under the bed... out of sight and all that ROFL Thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN

You are not the only one, I can't play Stars Wars with Toodles, I just hang around on the screen looking useless, and getting shot.

Bug hugs and stroke to Alfie Cat.

Hels you mentioned that "C word"!!!!! But a great tag never the less! Jupiter, now I know at last! It was very cold and clear last night, so I was looking at the moon and stars too! Could Mr Grim explain my phone to me, not as gifted as his phone, but I still can't work it!

Gorgeous artwork Hels, loving all the frosty colours as it fits the current somewhat frosty weather which we have even on the South coast.
Know what you mean about the phone thing as I have my younger daughter's old phone cos she has a new iPhone and I have to walk around with the instruction book (makes me feel really stupid!)
