Meet Robin Hood - minus the tights !!!!

As a special thank you to those ladies who shared in a very raucous Altered Book Workshop at Graphicus last Friday I found this photo of the Infamous Robin Hood. Apparently the tights caused some degree of friction (on the knee) and had to be replaced with trousers. Also (according to Robin Hood) it is difficult to keep magic tricks in tights. There was and is absolutely no
comment(s) that can be made. No doubt Hinge and Brackett M.B.E. may have something to add.

On a different note - it's been announced - the new Elusive Images Design Team have responded to the call and new members have been found. If you click on the logo at the side you can visit their blogs and say hello.

Happy Crafting

Time shall not be my master

In our house there have been so many comings and goings over recent weeks that I think I have caught myself coming back several times. I have been enjoying activity weeks in schools, visited The Baltic with 2,800 Brownies, Guides and Rainbows to celebrate the Centenary, and prepped for workshops and classes.

Mike and I have been like ships that pass in the fog - not seeing each other for any length of time makes you realise how much you enjoy those brief 'coffee break' moments.

On the crafting front I have decided to think of our house as living, evolving sculpture / work of art. Seeking to find beauty in chaos - Charlotte has become addicted to copic markers and has 'large' projects on the go which cannot be moved under any circumstance. Nathan seems to have become the voice of Piccasso and I found some interesting art work - everything drawn within circles which has given him some artistic confidence in his abilities.

I do have lots of bits and pieces to show for my efforts but will leave you with a card from my favourite plate of stamps at the moment.

The stamp is from Patchwork Butterfly - A4 theme plate available here. The background is crushed olive distress inked white card which was then cuttlebugged and those Martha Stewart Punch around the Page sets are fantastic.

Enjoy the wet weather - believe that the sun will come out tomorrow!
