Sneaky Peek Thursday...

Hi folks...crikey what's happened to the glorious Spring weather...in the blink of an eye we're back in real grotty bah humbug weather territory again...dull dreich and persisting with rain...perfect weather for a "crack on with the crafty list" cubbyhole WORK day.  I've had a few e-mails from crafty folks concerned that I'm over-doing things...working too hard...I should be taking a break so let me explain that when I talk about "WORK"...it's not WORK in the real sense of the word...there are no early morning and late back home commutes...no 9 to 5 Monday to Friday daily grind and no boss looking over my shoulder either...the cubbyhole definition of "WORK" is having loads of fun with lots of stuff...OK there are deadlines and the dreaded step-by-steps attached and I know I moan from time to time but that's just me letting off steam...the old safety net we all need when the going gets tough so take a leaf out of the cubbyhole crew's book and take NO NOTICE of me when I'm having a moaning minnie day  Today is one of those days that reminds me of just how lucky I am to work with the fabulous team at Fiskars who have given me so many great opportunities not least of which is I get to PLAY... oops WORK with their fabulous products and they understand my need occasionally to sneak in a little bit of a certain someone else's fabulous products too.
So once the coat of Gesso is dry...it's going to be a fun messy painty inky "I love my job" kind of a day with the last of the Fiskars projects ticked off the crafty list and I promise there will be no mention of the keyboard session that will inevitably follow. In the meantime...as the blog post title suggests...I'm sharing some sneaky peeks of stuff that will be appearing on a magazine shelf near you and in Fiskars monthly newsletters soon.


Enjoy your day whatever you're doing
Toodle-oo for now
Hugs Kath xxx

Hi Kath, love that colours you've chosen, beautiful and bright for another dreary day. Pity about your planned trek, perhaps Mr Sun will pop out soon and you will be able to try those gorgeous new shoes which do look oh so oomfy...Trish

Hi Kath the colours look bright and cheerful and matches the lovely sunshine we have here at the moment. Let's hope it stays dry at least while I take pooch out shortly x

I almost hate to tell you this but it is beautiful and sunny here today after a rainy night (but it probably won't last....). Love your sneak peeks today and look forward to seeing the finished canvas. Hugs, Anne xx

we have the same weather as you Kath, but I have an idea for the dreaded step by steps - just dictate what you are doing as you do it and get the furry boy to type the notes up for you - I know he's a dab hand (paw) on the keyboard lol - your sneeky peeks look gorgeous, love the colours (and I couldnt wait for you to try out your new go-walks so I've got me a pair to try!

The weaather has relly cheered up here in South Oxfordshire this afternoon Kath. Broke off painting the walls to sow my french beans ready for planting out at the end of May but now must get back to the craft room or I'll never be straight...X
