Curiously Doubley Distressed...

...mmm, no prizes for guessing what the theme for the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge is this week LOL Hosted, devised and beautifully represented by the lovely Linda Ledbetter, this challenge is... curiously addictive (see what I did there... curiously!) If you would like to see what I am waffling on about today, please CLICK HERE to be transported, as if by magic, to see Linda's blog.



So... I made another tag... that is 23 tags made so far... I had planned to layer them all onto a big piece of wood and then pop them up onto the wall.. I even saved some wall space in the Room of Stash *note I am using the proper name for my good old room... but more of that later :O))* Anyways, you should see them all now - they are on two book rings and I will need another before the challenge is thru - but they are a really good "aide memoir" (oooh, get me, being all French!) and I have remembered to label the back of them with the technique of the week ;o))



I mentioned the Room of Stash and I am busting with pride now because... after THREE arduous days, it is... TIDY! Seriously, I know that doubters will think that I have just tidied up the desk and that .. but, nay and thrice, I have not only tidied both desks, I have also put stuff away, sorted out all my Distress Ink tools into colour order *be calm my inner control freak*, organised all my Alterations, sorted out the eBay stuff that I am selling at the moment... and... I have even... *please sit down if you are of a nervous disposition* used... the vaccuum!!! Admittedly, it was a bit of a "one whizz is all it needs" job, but hey, it looks better! I will pop some pics on on Weds for the WOYWW - oh and I nearly forgot to say... whilst I was tidying, I was also sorting out all the drawers cos they had just been stuffed with what-not when I first unpacked ROFL



I am getting more and more excited as the week passes... in... FOUR days *not including today cos we are already in today and it sounds better if today isn't included LOL*... Ellen will be here with me, in the Room of Stash with me... and I am like a kiddie waiting for Christmas!!! I seriously cannot wait... we have already had several "separated at birth" moments... so goodness knows what it will be like when we are actually together... actually, I do feel a bit sorry for Grim... he is so not gonna know what has hit him ROFL Right... I have got my crafting head on so I am going to make the most of it and go and make... something.. not sure what yet LOL Thanks for looking... have a very goodly day! TTFN

Well done for clearing up your room. I can feel your excitment over Ellen's visit. Hope to see more 'double act' amazing creations which I'm sure will be as gorgeous as this tag.

Great tag, I love your choice of embellishments especially the beads at the bottom.

Now, Hels. Darling. You do realize that we're a TAD skeptical of your claim to have actually VACUUMED without seeing actual proof, right? Where are the pictures of your lovely, newly de-cluttered space?

Actually, I only SWEEP in my craft room (once a year whether it needs it or not), because you never know what the broom will find in those dark corners that would have been lost forever in a vacuum!

As always, love your tag. You do such nice work, always! (Can we also see a pic of your tags on the rings? I don't ask for much, do I?)

Thanks for posting this. I was wondering if the words would fit with the baubles. Now I know. Thanks. Have fun with Ellen, I know you will.

Terry said...

You know this ornament set was not on my list and I was not sure if I even liked it, but that has now all changed! Fabulous tag!
