Beware...Wet Paint

Morning folks....the production line crafting has moved up a gear and it's going to be a painty kind of a day in the cubbyhole prepping all the chipboard panels for my canvas workshop next Saturday...instead of faffing around with a brush (which is fine if you are just painting one) the cubbyhole crew had to come up with a more a streamlined method...time to look out a disposable tray and this dinky mini paint roller...
 you really do get a much smoother finish for stamping on with this method than using a brush...
but there is one slight logistical problem...where do I put them to dry.  We have a strict rule in this mad crafter's crafty stuff allowed outside the cubbyhole so there is only one suitable place....the floor and let me tell you now there will be one mighty hullaballoo if a certain someone with 4 huge hairy feet decides to go walkabout
With 30 to prep...this may take a while...a great excuse to have a repeat of yesterday's mid-morning break and get stuck into Tina's delicious Strawberry Preserve and yesterday's  "mad baking moment" scones...blame the Great British Bake Off...
Catch up with you all tomorrow over at Penny Black Saturday for another great challenge and we have something extra special to celebrate.
