After counting down for 78 days we finally headed out here on Saturday - it was worth the 2am start !
I managed to squeeze some stash into my suitcase (and hand luggage - things were getting desperate !) and bring my Neocolour crayons & my journal !
I was allowed to open some of my birthday presents early before we left - the parcels too big to bring - and my sister had bought me some new Crafty Individuals stamps, then I had some stamps free with my new subscription to Craft Stamper & there are a couple of Stamp Addicts ones that I also got lured by - they leapt into the baggage so I can mess around with them whilst I have time to play !
Today, however, I am playing in my art journal - finishing a page I made about how I love a bop on the dance floor when I get the chance - even though I have 2 left feet (I traced round mine for the page ! ), can't told a tune and have absolutely no sense of rhythm !! Still a girl can boogie in her own little world !!
And the second page is work in progress - my friend Lynda challenged me to create a page on the theme "Tick Tock" - so this has Birds of Time made up from various Paperartsy stamps - and is about the contradictions of time - of how it is both the primeval experience of nature and yet a completely artificial human concept !
Well better scoot now - we are off to stay in a hotel in the mountains converted from a monastery - one of our favourite places ever - for the night on Thursday so I can wake up there on my birthday Friday. They haven't had rain here for weeks - and it is due to rain Friday - just typical - must have brought it with us from Wales !
Anyway, have a great crafty week !
