WOYWW- Finally some crafting !!

Thanks to everyone who visited last week & your supportive comments for trying to keep on crafting even when life is at it's most hectic .. I was getting that restless, pining feeling I have when I don't do anything creative for ages !!
Finally Saturday I got straight with all my garden tasks & it was bright & sunny but far too windy here in West Wales to do much outside ... so I was able to spend the rest of the lovely bank holiday weekend at my craft desk with a clear conscience ! My ever indulgent DH left me to get on with things - I think he knows I need this as my "wind down time" bless him !
So I have my Configurations printers tray all finished - it is inspired by the quote on the Paperartsy stamp - "In all Things in Nature there is Something of the Marvellous" - I have loads of nature based stamps - one of my many weaknesses ! - and as I am not a card maker I often wonder how I can get to use these.
Hence this project using loads of these lovely stamps - lots of distress inks, Promarkers & Vivagold paints in new ways. Great fun & I am fairly happy with how it has come out.
DH said "very nice dear - what's it for! " - his normal comments !!
When I said - well it's just a bit of art - he said "lovely - we don't have to have it out anywhere do we ?"
Oh well - at least he's supportive of my being crafty if not of the end results - can't have everything !!!! What do your nearest & dearest think about your crafting ???
Have a great week ! Ali x
