|Messy Desk this week !|
My desk has clutter rather than much in the way of projects - and the one I do have I can't show you !
I have bought a new project zip up bag and pencil case from Paperchase to take some crafty bits on holiday next week ! Who could resist the tropical print ! On top you can see the back of 2 tags. These are the first of the monthly challenges that Lynda & I have embarked on this year. This month's challenge was "crackle glaze" and "tag on tag" - can't show you before Lynda sees them obviously ! But they have a January theme !
I did scrabble a little time together on Sunday when I got home from my weekend away to try to catch up on my 2015 Journal - the diary day page for the previous week harks back to the photos I showed you last week of celebrating the winter sunrise - with my rather wonky silhouette drawing !!
And the Journal Page is based on the Colour Wheel challenge for DLP.
I made up this quote as I thought it was apt for the page !
It is a bit messier than I expected but I had a bit of a barney with the Cosmic Shimmer sprays which were bunged up at the spray nozzle and then splurged !!
But hey it is all colour !!
|Obsession January 2015|
Just amazed us how great seemingly simple ingredients could taste ! It featured lots of fish & fresh vegetables - so quite healthy if we hadn't been enjoying the wine quite so much !!
Our hosts had booked the Chef's Tasting Table which is located in a special room off the kitchen - so we got to see all the service being prepared & served and were hosted by Nigel Haworth - Chef at the Hotel who has held a Michelin star for nearly 20 years and is being instrumental in training young people into the industry.
We had a fabulous & memorable evening !
You can see myself (red frock!) and Helen who so kindly invited me with our souvenir menus.
Below that is a picture for any of you who are into Sugarcraft - an amazing cake designed to show the produce being celebrated at the Obsession event. A delicious salmon dish was served with chive dust !
And our favourite dish of the evening was the lobster in the centre right - totally gorgeous !
Well that was my excuse for no crafting - and I enjoyed every minute !
Have a great crafty week ! Ali xx
