Paperartsy Fun...

Morning folks..before you can blink it's Monday again...where did the weekend go...I was at The Papeterie on Saturday for a Paperartsy Extravaganza...thanks to all the lovely crafty girls who came along to join in the "Painting and Stamping Paperartsy style Make & Takes" in the morning...we had great fun playing with lots of different techniques including stamping with paint and bubble wrap...we did end up with rather mucky paws but after a dunk in a sink of warm soapy water we were all fit to be seen out in public again and enjoy a cuppa and the yummy cake that Paula kindly brought was absolutely delicious.

And here's what we made...

and wohoo some exciting news...I'm footloose and fancy free for the next 2 weeks...nothing on the crafty workshop prep so a chance to catch up with long neglected friends...don my lady who lunches hat perhaps and if the weather improves...get some work done in the garden but you know me I can't stay out of the cubbyhole for too long so I may be found over at Timmie's Creative Chemistry 101 Online Class playing catch up. I'll be back tomorrow to share the project we made at the Paperartsy workshop on Saturday afternoon....another painty "mucky hands" session.
And on Sunday...a slight change of plan...I decided to take off and spend the day with my gorgeous grandkids...Brodie suggested that we have an afternoon crafting with his Pirates Of The Caribbean Craft Set and you know me...never one to turn down a chance to have some stamping fun but the conversation soon turned to more serious matters...
Brodie:  Grandma..I'm thinking of starting a craft club but I don't have a lot of you want to come?
Oliver:  No it's for boys and Grandma's a girl
Brodie: We need Grandma to come...she's got lots of stuff
and I have to award him 10 out 10 for ingenuity and making me giggle but perhaps only 2 out of 10 for sublety....out of the mouths of babes.

  5. Pirates? - now wonder what you came up with, love Brodie's idea too & seems to be a good pragmatist though Oliver appears to have got his genders sorted out! Looks like you had great fun inky fingers & all on Saturday.

  6. Fabulous project Kath. I quite fancy the bubble wrap idea! Your Grandsons idea has really made me smile! Love Michele xx

    Hugs Carol xx

  8. Super project and lovely tale about the Grandkids. xxx

  9. Thanks Kath, it was a lovely way to spend the morning and I love the wee creation we made. Really enjoying dabbling with the acrylic paints. Glad you enjoyed the cake. Love the combinations of these colours, really go well together.


  10. Your tag is just gorgeous, I love the colours and the use of the bubblewrap. Brodie sounds adorable and very sensible, it is a lovely story.

  11. Looks like you all had fun on Saturday morning. Can't wait to see what you made in the afternoon.

    Aren't kids funny! Sounds like Brodie had the right idea.

    Kat xx

  12. Love that shade of blue especially with the black - it really pops! Brodie has got his head on the right way lol hugs karen x

  13. Loved making that make and take, gorgeous colours to show up the black stamps. We are so lucky to share our time with the grandchildren, and after 10yrs of no nappies we are going to be grandparents again!I think we have a Brodie in our bunch.

  14. Your grandchildren sound absolutely gorgeous and delightful and you had me grinning from ear to ear over Brodie's antics! Good for him! The paperartsy projects are absolutely beautiful - my favourite colour, turquoise! x


Thanks for taking the time to visit me in the cubbyhole...I love to hear from you.
hugs Kath xxx
