it's going to be a long day xxx

Hi folks...it's been crazy crazy busy in the cubbyhole...I'm trying to get ahead of the game and nail the list of crafty things to do before I take off for my Hobbycraft Holibobs at The NEC and I've had lots of fun playing with the Crazy Cats stamps/dies and my new guilty pleasure...Distress Crayons...making projects for my favourite magazine Simply Homemade...oops will I be in trouble for sharing just one little sneaky peek...
and I found myself in a bit of guddle when it came to sorting out which set of eyes and which tail belonged to which cat but I think I may have come up with a "time saving" solution...
I numbered each individual cat stamp...
and did the same for the corresponding dies...
in theory...this should make life easier...in practice ...I  need to make sure that I replace the dies as I go along or I'll be back to the "eeny meeny miney mo" guessing game...
I can't tell you how much I love my Distress Crayons and I've been merrily creating Distress Crayon Resist backgrounds with the new Mini Layering Stencils and the Picket Fence Crayon...result...both my White Crayons are on their last legs...I wonder if refills will be available or will we be able to buy our favourites separately...
But today will be the craziest of all...my adorable furry companion is booked in for surgery to remove a soft squishy cyst like lump we found on his neck last week and this Momma is not looking forward to my "going CRAZY...pacing the cubbyhole floor/won't be able to concentrate" very long day.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

The 'peek' is lovely. I'm so looking forward to getting my hands on the crayons and some of the smaller stencils.

Aw, Kath...give Buddy a huge but gentle hug from me when he comes home. He's going to be fine :)
I have to say that you've come up with a wonderful idea regarding the cat dies. I just sat looking at mine for ages trying to work out which eyes and tails went with which cat. I never thought of numbering them...what a simple, effective answer to the problem. I need to make sure I've got them all right before I follow your example...I have to say the birds were easier weren't they lol.

Good luck to Buddy and hope all goes smoothly. They certainly pull on our heartstrings, don't they.

Love your sneak peak, as well :-)

Redanne said...

Oh I do hope Buddy is OK and it all went smoothly....

Love the sneak peek! I saw on someone's blog (Zoe maybe), she coloured each set of the dies a different colour, possibly with alcohol ink - but your idea is equally good methinks!

Hugs, Anne xx

Give Buddy a soft hug from me.
