...cor blimey! and thrice! indeedily!!! Firstly, a mahoooosive thank you for all your amazing emails, comments, tweets etc and for your support of the Melt Pot shows on Wednesday! WOW! The response was awesome and it seems that you all loves the Melt Pot and the new Media Mixage goodies! As a thank you, from me to you.... here's a little giveaway for you. All you need to do is leave a comment here... tis that simples... and then I will randomly pick one comment to win the pendant, the closing date/time for the giveaway will be Tuesday 23rd April at 23.59 and the winner will be announced on next Wednesday's post. And here's what you could win :O)) It is the large triange Media Mixage bezel with a mix of the Metallics Mica Powders a a marble of black UTEE running through it.
So, as I said, thank you... the response was overwhelming indeedily... and what makes me reaaaaaally chuffed is that you are all embracing the Melt Pot and it is almost as if it is having a revival, which makes me smile biggly as it is a wonderful piece of kit! You might remember me showing off these two pieces on the shows... first up is my AlfieCat. Well, most peeps would use a photo of their baby or grandkids... and being as I have neither, I used my furbaby instead. He is a little sausage and such a poseur when it comes to having his piccie taken.. as you can see from this one. I used the large Circle bezel and clear UTEE. I wish I could take the credit for the printing of the photo but, alas, the resizing bit was foxing me, so my Tech Guy (Grim) stepped in to help! The background of the papers was stamped with the funky little Button Florals images... and I used the Silky Crush ribbons to add some black and white - seeing Alf is black and white!
Next up is Jerry. Readers of old will remember my photo's from last year, the day we spent with Jerry (and Rich and Mary who own him... or is it the other way round lol) Jerry is a little sausage indeedily... he is the most beautiful Springer spaniel (I know, his name... too funny) and he loves his Uncle Grim... which makes me a smidge sad because normally I am a dog/cat/bird/duck whisperer *more about that in a mo* but Jerry seems impervious to my charms. And everytime we see him, it is Uncle Grim whom he goes to straight away. I have tried winning him over with toys, treats and even juicy bones, but nope, Uncle Grim all the way. He does allow me to play with him occasionally and... I think he is doing all of this to make out like Grim is his fave when it is actually me... 'cos Mary was watching me on yonder tellybox and Jerry recognised me (my voice I reckon) and sat and watch with her... how sweet... he loves me really lol Anyways... again, Tech Guy Grim printed out the pic, the large Heart bezel was used and again, clear UTEE. So, what to do with this large embellie? I don't do scrapbooking... so I had a lightbulb moment and made a photo album, covering greyboard with patterned papers, using the Bind It All to ...erm.. bind it... and then adding Silky Crush ribbon to the wires. So now Jerry has his very own photo album... am thinking that Rich & Mary will be adding the pics cos Jerry might struggle and glue on is paws (you don't want to live in my head, it is a smidge scary) Oh and the duck whispering thing? Last year we went on the Broads for a weekend... and we (I mean Grim) were parking (or whatever the real word is) at Salhouse Broad when a couple of ducks landed on the roof of the boat. I was hanging around at the back of the boat (again, not proper terminology, it is called the ...erm... *scratches head*... stern!) and these two duckies were waddling about on the roof of the boat, so I grabbed some bread and they were eating out of my hand! Oh yesh, Duck Whisperer, I rather like that title! Like when I went to Ellen's for the first time.. her kitty cat India was a bit scared of hoomans and didn't like sitting on laps and suchlike.. until she met Aunty Hels and oh yesh, she was two paws and a leg on my knee by the end of the stay... and Ellen said I am a Cat Whisperer... you see, there must be something in it... just not with Jerry lol
Right, after all that waffling, I shall bid you good-day and away to the horrors of the supermarket... wish me luck, I hate shopping (unless it is for stashly goodies) but the cupboards are bare... and I am getting mighty low on Diet Coke lol Thanks for looking... TTFN
