Monday Morning Feeling

Morning folks....I've got that Monday Morning feeling....last week was busier than busy and with only 5 more sleeps until our Crafty Workshop this week won't be any different...headless chicken and running around will probably be the order of the day and no doubt Mrs Grumpy will have an airing or two before the big day. I know that I mumph and moan from time to time about the cubbyhole workload but it's all a bit tongue in way of relieving the stress of those crafty deadlines.  Get if off your chest...chuck the toys back in the pram and get on with it is my motto.... I love what I do and am so lucky to have been given the opportunity to do what I love best...getting out there and sharing my passion with all those lovely crafters is the best job in the world and when an e-mail from someone who has been inspired to try out something new pops into my Inbox...well it's the best feeling in the world and makes all the hardwork and late nights worthwhile...
Hi Kath
I hope you don’t mind me getting in touch but I thought you might like to see my effort at making the shrink plastic charm that you demonstrated at Papercrafts in Elgin. It was not something I had used before but it is good fun and luckily I have asbestos hands.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening to are one very talented lady. Oh and I hope Lord Timmie has you on commission because up until two weeks ago I did not own a single product of his...I have now been converted! Best Wishes Lynne
and this is what Lynne made....isn't it gorgeous...thank you for your kind words Lynne and for sharing your very first attempt at Shrink Plastic...believe me my first attempt certainly wasn't fit for publication.
And if by any remote chance you are reading this Timmie....10% sounds about right to me but we could get together and negotiate over a Starbucks or two.  And oh my giddy aunt have you seen THIS...
gorgeous gorgeous must-have District Market Collection launched last week in NYC....I've been drooling from the minute I saw want to get my greedy inky crafty mitts on all of it

The kitting is done and dusted but I am by no means out of the woods yet...still lots of those pesky last minute jobs to I'm making badges...and for those of you who know me only too well...yes I will be writing a note to the instructions before you dive in and make a pig's ear of them all.
And woohoo look what arrived in the cubbyhole last week...a sneaky peek of some lucky badge prizes for our Crafty Workshop girls from my very generous buddies at Fiskars and a little birdie tells me there are more to put in the pot including some goodies from Letraset....
Catch up with you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

WOW - I love the shrink plastic charm that Lynne was inspired to make. You sure are one VERY INSPIRING person Kath. I had to rush to The Glitter Pot website to check out that Hero Arts set you used Saturday because you made me want to make cards with it!

Here's hoping your District Market dreams come true.

Hugs, Sandra

i love looking at your blog Kath, when do you find time to do all your lovely projects never mind prepping for the classes. I love your style-clean simple but very stylish ! I have tried to have a go at the latest "on trend " layered and flowered and goodness knows what else flung on to a card but keep going back to what I know best-plain and simple ! Keep up the good work !!Kate.

Hi Kath, love Lynne's bag charm. I'm sure I've got shrink plastic in a drawer somewhere, might rake it out soon!
