Busy, busy few days, with loads going on. I fell up the stairs the other day, yes I did say up!! I ended up with carpet burns on my knees..Now no sniggering, I can hear you..!!! Well I also cricked my back quite badly and struggled on Saturday at the class. I was doped up with painkillers, but we had a fabulous day.
Here we have a whole family. Vanessa, Valencia, Virginia and Mel.
Emma, Bee the birthday girl, Anne and Steff
Val, Virginia, Mel, Jude and Carole.
Ronnie, Anne Marie, and Sandra
Chris, Liz and Janet.
There was also Michelle, missing from the photos.
Janet baked some lovely buns (eaten before chance of pic, lol). These gorgeous muffins were made by Virginias hubby. Big thanks for that.
Look at the state of the tables...lol
Sat night is usually a Northern Soul night, and this was no exception. I didnt really want to go as I was in agony, but I was the designated driver and didnt want to let them down, so I dosed myself up with painkillers and took the plunge. I painfully lowered myself into a chair and prepared to spend a miserable night without being able to dance to the music I love, Eventually I had to stand up and tentativley have a go. Amazingly I could dance with no pain, it was the sitting down and getting up that hurt. I was worried what I would be like the next day, but it had really eased. So there you go, just proves how good Northern Soul is it even helps cure bad backs..lmao
Another fab and completely messy day was had by all. We painted, sprayed, spritzed, stenciled, inked, masked, flicked, splattered, stamped amongst a background of laughing, eating, gossiping, eating, singing, eating, giggling and yes you,ve guessed it, more eating..!!! They were a fabulous crowd and a pleasure to have back to teach. Big thanks, of course, to Pam, Katie and Jay for all their help over the weekend.
We have just had probably the hottest weekend of the century, and we all struggled with it, so how come The Goddess and The Resident Bit of Glamour manage to look so effortlessly cool..???
The most gorgeous granddaughter in the world, ever, ever, ever...wasn,t very well today, so she stayed home with me, Yayy...!! She perked up as the day went on and we did some colouring.
I then made her do some chores, lol. You need to train them young these days..!!!
And then we went grocery shopping. She was quiet in the car and when I turned around the little monkey had my glasses on, lol.
Heres another journal page to show you from my ink only book. This is the background I showed you last week.
And this is the result.
The background is a combination of Distress inks and Adirondack colourwashes, embellished with doodling and Tim's butterfly.I added a Stampotique girly and finished it all off with my downloads
Theres a download class going on tomorrow, can't wait..woop woop..!!
