...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! I hope that 2013 is a very kind and giving year and all your wishes do come true. I don't normally go in for the old resolutions - like giving up the fags and losing weight - I like to set realistic goals *hahahaaa... * so this year, I have decided that the only goal I will have is to try and stay positive. It is all too easy to mope about (I am Queen of the Mopers) when things don't go right or if my pain gets too much. Instead of thinking "oh that has gone wrong.... " I am going to be thinking "Well, that didn't turn out how I wanted but I will do something about it" And the first thing that will be sorted is my poor old Room of Stash. It has got into the worst state ever... mainly because a) I have so much stuff in here and no order b) I have so much stuff in here and I am a lazy moo and c) I have so much stuff in here and my slatternly behaviour of late has made it completely out of control. I mean, this is how bad I am getting, instead of saying "oh I shall tidy the Room of Stash and make it nice and ordered" I am saying "Oh look, that book there on the shelf needs reading" or "Oh look, there's something I can make without disturbing the pile of stuff I have chucked onto the floor" I know, not only am I Queen of the Mopers, I am also Queen of the Prevaricators! No more, oh no, I am going to do something about it *perhaps after I have de-fuzzed the tumble-dryer.... *
Anyways... today I have had a little play in the Room of Stash (instead of tidying it) and have made this little hanging. I wanted to make something to blog and I also wanted it to be quick so I can make a start on the tidying *believe that, you will believe 'owt* And actually, I have a Skypey sesh lined up with Ellen this afternoon so I needs to get blogged and ready for our chatterings. The base is a papier mache thingy from Paper Artsy, edged with Espresso Dabber and then some of that gorgeous Bazzill Basics paper popped over the top. All edged with Vintage Photo (cos you know, brown is my comfort zone) The flower is a grouping of Prima's and I jazzed up a Melissa Frances embellie to make the wordy thing - which was stamped with Alpha's and it it the word of 2013 for me... Wish will be my buzz word, I shall make a lot of them and attempt to make a few come true too. (just pop a wand in my hand and call my Fairy Godmother... which is better than Fairy Elephant which is what I am normally called rofl)
So. Last night was a right result! Remember I said that "boohoo" I was going to be alone at midnight because Grim had to be up early? Well, it just so happens that because of a derailed freight train last week, part of the line he drives is closed overnight. Which meant that there weren't any trains until 9am... which meant... he went to work later and he could stay up til midnight! Hurrah! I celebrated with a Bailey's... poor old Grim couldn't though as he was driving this morning, so I had to have another one for him lol *hic* Anyways, I should away really because I needs to get this Room of Stash relatively normal before Ellen sees it on Skype, she would pass out if she saw how bad it is really... and her studio is always so neat so I need to make the effort lol Thanks for looking... have a fab day! TTFN
P.S... 10 days to CHA!
