Pressies and Playing... **enabler alert**

... I put the enabler thing on the title just to warn you, so you can't blame me at all for what happens after you have looked at these photo's lol Anyways... yesterday was a lovely day indeedily; it was the first Meet & Tweet get together... starring Gillian, Jo, Gabrielle, Karen and Lin... and me of course. So, it started a few weeks ago when my little ears pricked up when I heard Gillian saying she was going to LB for a class with Lin... and seeing as I live 20 mins away I said... shall we meet up afterwards? And then Jo and Gabrielle heard about it and seeing as they live close by they said yes, let's all get together... so we did! And a lovely time was had by all... the only thing I will say is this... we didn't get long enough... Gillian had to go back to the airport to catch her plane home... otherwise I think we probably would be been still gassing now lol So... the "playing" part of the post. Well, Gillian bought me some Distress Stains (and shadowboxes!) as a thank you for taking her to the airport... totally unnecessary but very muchly appreciated :O)) So... last night I had a little play... and... I am in lurve! Official! With... Picket Fence... it is GORGEOUS peeps... seriously delish! I have done some sample pics... just the bases of the tags done... oh and some ickle tags with Stains over the top and a Colorwash too.... here they are:

And now for the "pressies" part of the post... Gillian was soooo kind.. and gave me these two DIVINE pieces of art.... who is a lucky girl huh!!!

More pressies too... because Kat sent me this beautiful necklace the other day... bless! I love it... (cos I love owls)

And... even more pressies... Janet was so kind when she spotted these on a car boot and thought of me... bless! I love them (cos I love little trinkets)

Anyways... enough of the waffle from me today.. tis toooooo hot! I know, I know, I am a miserable old moobag going on about the weather all the time but... it's one extreme to the other! Thanks for looking... am off to get inky again... (I may be some time!)

Alison Horne said...

Am v. jealous of the monopoly pieces, have been scouring the charity shops for these but can only find plastic ones :(

Julie said...

Wowee! Can't wait for these to hit Australia.

Kat said...

what a lucky girl you are,
all those lovely pressies,
i'm glad you liked the owl I sent you,
when I saw him hanging on a stall at covent garden, I thought of you.
can't wait to see him on a piece of your fab art work,
hugs :-) Kat.
