A Form of Alteration...

...mwhahahahaaaa... did you see what I did there? A Form... of Alteration... I have made myself laugh which is so not a good thing... anyways... today is my day for the Bubbly Funk DT... and I have been playing with ink and Alterations and made another tag. All the deets on how I made it are HERE btw.




I got caught on the hop yesterday afternoon and it is certainly a lesson learnt... you see, I am a slob... I am! Honestly! I am!!! Say it isn't so lol Anyways... when I know I am having a day in and not going anywhere I have a tendancy to not do my hair or put make up on... see told you I am a slob. Well, yesterday I got caught out. I had spent the morning making a certain something for Andrea (she hasn't see in yet!) and I was just finishing up and the doorbell went.



Well, I went to answer it thinking it would be the Postie... ahem, NO! It wasn't Postie... it was Grim's Bessie Mate and his Mrs! So, I have answered the door wearing my crafting clothes (for that, read inky, painty and scuzzy clothes) and there they were! A surprise visit! Now Bessie Mate has never seen me looking anything less than groomed (for that, read hair brushed, make up on) And... even worse... Bessie Mate's new girlfriend has never met me before!!! I was seven shades of scarlet I can tell you... however, thankfully, they are both lovely and didn't laugh and point at me and call me a slob or anything. So, lesson learnt... I shalln't get caught out like that again I can tell you. I got up extra early today and have myself all coiffed and made up, mind you, wearing lippy to clean out the lit tray is probably a bit excessive but AlfieCat is impressed lol.




Anyways... I had better get a wiggle on... Andrea is coming to stay with me this weekend and I have stuff to do before she gets here... namely tidy up the Room of Trash... alas it has become that again... obviously I have been busy entertaining and spending a yonk doing my make up and all that... but that really is no excuse!! Right... gotta dash... have a goodly day! TTFN

Love the tag, but love your little tale even more! When I retired I thought GREAT! don't need to dress up any more until UhOh! handsome man from down the road knocked one day(I am, by the way happily married)it prompted me to immediately throw away anything I couldn't answer the door in!!

We have a saying in this house... tidy and clean wards off visitors!! Its true... if I have an immaculate house you can be sure nobody will knock on my door and the minute the place needs a vacuum and the dishes aren't done, people a beating a path to my door... have fun getting ready for Ellen and the tag is lovely!!

Hels! The tag is wonderful, I love all the feminity of it--does it match your lippy today?
:-D I love to stay in my PJs on Sundays if I don't need to go out and I'm going to craft all day. My mother always said to do hair and makeup even to take the trash out. Well that worked for my widowed sister - she met her current hubby 2 years ago taking the trash to the curb for pickup - and she credits mom's advice! LOL -- It must work she even snagged one 12 years younger than her.
