Where Did You Get That...

...erm... top HAT!!! Indeedily, I have been busy in the world of Altered Art again... right, remember last week I pointed you in the direction of Minxy who had very cleverly made herself a Top Hat Hairband??? Well, I did hint that I had...ahem... tried to make one for myself... and ...erm... Mr Amazon had to come to the rescue following several anguished hours and several sheets of wasted Grungeboard later... well, the Top Hat I bought was awful... truly awful... like blingy and bright and generally not at all "me"... only one thing for it then!!!




So, I set to work, ripped it all apart and painted the lot with Claudine's rather splendid Charcoal Black paint... then got very industrious with a hot glue gun and a whole heap of Idea-ology... and this is the finished article... which I may as well tell you... I will be sporting this on Saturday and Sunday at Ally Pally... how long it will stay on my head is debatable as it is rather heavy and the band isn't that tight... I may have to tie an old leccy band to it and see if that will hold it in place lol



So... are you going to Ally Pally??? Do pop by to have a natter won't you... you know, if you find yourself with a few spare minutes in your shopping frenzy,
I mean session rofl I will be demo-ing on the Artistic Stamper stand... which is Stand # 49 I am really looking forward to the weekend, it is going to be fun meeting up with you all again... seems like months since the last Ally Pally... oh, it is... durrr....



Right, stuff to do before the weekend... and I have two chocolate cakes to bake today... I know, the things I will do for my mates ...
and for a pack of Avenue by Crate Paper papers lol Andrea has found a full pack in her stash and she has said I can have it... bless her... so I am making a mahoosive choccy cake covered in Cadbury's Buttons and Flakes and basically, the best choccy cake on the planet... mmmm.... Thanks for looking... TTFN! Hels x

Darn it! And I'm not going to be there to get the ubiquitous "shot-of-Hels-demoing-while-wearing-her-hat". Shucks. I wonder if Minxy will wear hers?

Helen said...

Ha ha, I always thought you were as mad as a hatter!! See you on Saturday!!

Minxy said...

I will indeed be wearing mine.
Looking good Hels, were gonna look like a right pair of mad hatters lol

Oh beautiful work Hels, if it wobbles you could always stuff it with Cheezy things and then you could dig in every now and again when you are pickish! Have a great time at AP sorry not up to going x

Neil said...

And there was me wondering if I would recognise you in the crowd.... that problem sorted then! Looks good, by the way, where's the tea party going to be; and will the rest of the mad hatters be there too?

Hi Hels - I wish I was going - but I'm not - sadly or not, I have been doing a little too much spending lately - and unfortunately without a motorised chair, I don't think I could get around. BUT when you next come to Stamp Attic for classes - which I hope you are doing to do - please oh please bring that HAT!!
Have a brill time.
Hugs
