I think I know what the latest form of torture could be – it would to grab a man (any man) and have him do countless hours of housework followed by a tribe of small children willing to undo it all behind you.
So far this week I have cleaned the toilet floor three times (don’t ask), mopped the laundry walls, pulled about a ton of hair out of the vacuum cleaner, washed the hermit crabs, and gumptioned the stair rails. Such is my life and on Mondays I am quite “gung ho” about it, but by Wednesday if I see another frickin mop, broom or sponge again I’ll throw them at someone. Meaning the dog. Or the cat.
So I am suffering what I call a “TKO” (Technical Knock Out) at home – as I write this I am sagged in front of the computer and managing to plunk out each letter with my right hand while drinking a stiff cup of coffee with my left. If any one tells me that those biccies that I am eating are fattening I am going to scream.
Moving on to more interesting things…Round 7 of Idol was put up today and once again the Embellished girls are asked to put together their brain cells and think of something a little “outside the square”.
This round the girls have been asked to use leftover product packaging within their LO’s.

Some other news is that my LO has been pubbed in Scrapbook Creations – the one that won the Colour Competition back in June. That same issue has got a heap of Embellished girls in it, but most notable is Julie Heard who has done a fabulous tutorial on painting techniques for the mag, plus has a heap of other fabbo LO’s throughout the mag. I’ve been saying it for a while now, but it’s HER YEAR for the Masters, I reckon.
Another Tip and Technique has gone up in the right hand side menu – this one is about creating a Patchwork effect in your LO by using scraps and adding some texture with tearing and ink. Make sure you have a go at it and see how easy it can be to add dimension to a LO….
That’s all from me for now except to show you some new LO’s that I have produced over the past few days,
Take care girls,
