...get a hat! Oh yesh, indeedily and thrice, I am sooo chuffed with this little fella that has been lurking in the Room of Stash for months! More of that in a mo... firstly, HOOOGE thank you's to everyone who left such wonderful comments on yesterdays post. I had a total of 76 comments and having fed this into Mr.Random.Org he came up with #15 as the winner... which tallies with the comment left by DOT'S DABBLES Please can you email me your addy and I will pop your pressie into the post :O))
On with todays offering. Like I said, I have had this little titfer for yonks. I actually bought it for the Jubilee... wore it to the shops and had some funny stares because it was actually sparkly blue with red, white and blue ribbon attached to it. As ever, I forgot to take a before pic...
I slapped some black paint all over the hat and let it air dry for a day or so - the paint soaked right into the felt underneath and took foreeeever to dry! Once dried I left it on the shelf for several weeks, ignoring it really... poor little thing. So, yesterday afternoon I decided to punk it up in time for the Big Stamping & Scrapbooking Show in Kettering this weekend. There's a whole heap of Idea-ology attached to it, some with hot glue and some with the wonder that is Cosmic Glue.
I had a fabby day yesterday - Gillian is in the Room of Stash! She has come to stay for the weekend so she can have a wee shop at the show.... and guess what!!! She has given me a make-over! Oh yes... after 42 years of having feathers for hair, I now have lovely sleek locks. All down to some GHD Hair Straightners and a mahooosive amount of patience (on Gillian's part, I was more than happy to sit and be preened lol) Whether or not the gorgeousness will last overnight is debatable. As I have told you frequently, that ugly little critter that lives under my bed may well brandish his extra strength hair gel and sink plunger my face - he normally does ... finger's crossed he will behave! Whatever the state of the old barnet, I shall be sporting my new hat all weekend... well, until I forget I am wearing it and bash my head against the desk... like I have never done that before... not lol
Anyways, I shall away, tis time for bed... if you are going to the show this weekend, please do pop by to say hi - tis lovely to meet up at these shows... faces to names and all that. As ever, have a FAB weekend... oh and a brand new Sunday Stamper theme will be posted tomorrow too! TTFN
