Melting Point...

Hi folks...everything's got it's melting point and oh boy did we come close to ours on Saturday at The Papeterie...trust Summer to choose that particular day to return to our neck of the woods...the sun was streaming in those big "lots of light" windows...6 Melt Pots were cooking at the UTEE setting all day and despite 2 fans running...well greasy plooks and sweaty bettys might be the best way to describe the state of us all by the end of the day but with our usual good humour we soldiered on and had great fun...
 capturing little charms and trinkets forever in UTEE filled Bezels...

playing with Texture Treads and trying our hands at a little bit of marbling...
I love it when you give crafty folks a tiny bit of inspiration and before you know they are off and running with it...putting their own spin on things...I really do have the bestest job in the world...thanks again girls for being crafty superstars...for your wonderful cheerful happy faces company in spite of feeling that you'd been spit roasted in the process...I'm looking forward to you sharing with me your fabulous future Melt Pot Makes.
But I'll be playing with an entirely different medium today...I'm resisting the current temptation to dip everything I see in a glossy coat of UTEE....determined to crack on with the DIY painty stuff...I know not nearly so much fun but hey someone's got to do it so it's a hot date day with a paintbrush. Time and tide wait for no man...in 2 days time Mr H will be posting his August tag...we're on time's slippery slope and the year's running away with us...before you know it will be...yep Christmas
I'll see you all tomorrow to share the last of the Melt Pot makes.

  8. Oh what would I give for a place on one of your workshops. The finished products look stunning. Was pressurised into doing some crafting today (not), and if the rain stays off maybe some painting of my own outside in the garden. Good luck with yours
