So... this is where my site will be come 30th January, for the St Andrews Craft Fair:
ABOVE: The church is on the corner of Hamilton Road and Victoria Street, it's a very well known corner.
Before the expressway went in, everyone travelling North or South on State Highway 1 had to pass it.
So, I've got a bit of work to do to have all the Ink Tiles framed and ready to go. And of course, if I get the time, I will make some patchwork coasters too.
I've not got any other plans for the day (YET)... so I will catch ya later.
ABOVE: "I can do my own hair Grandma!"
Nice Keera, very nice.
So, I want some plain white paper to put on the very back of the painting backing board, to cover the odd bits of paint I got on them.
I go down to the local Paper Plus shop. I go in and show them the backing board, and ask then if they have any paper that is that size?
NO is the answer. I say, anything a bit bigger that I can cut down?
NO is the answer. BUT,.... they do have some card?
I get taken to look at the card. It's $1 a sheet. I ain't paying that much per painting!
So I say thanks. And the saleswoman leaves me to it.
I wander around the shop for like, 1 second and come across this:
ABOVE: Would you LOOK AT THAT! 500 sheets of plain white paper, which can be cut down to size! For $27. Ahhh, that's sure MASSIVELY cheaper than $1 a sheet of card.
So, I take the paper up to the counter, eyeball the saleswoman who 'served' me, and hold up the paper. Then I said "Oh look, plain white paper that will fit my board". And pay and leave.
She walked away without saying a word. DUMB ARSE BITCH.
ABOVE: 7 totally finished.
ABOVE: By tomorrow midday, these 8 will be finished too.
I tried making a few more little ones this afternoon... but seriously, it just wasn't working. I've got 4 done, but I'm not that happy with them.
Dinner is starting to smell yum. I've got corned beef in the crock pot. We will be having mashed potatoes, veges and a cheese sauce to go with it. My mouth is drooling! I've not cooked corned beef in a few years.
Super yum dinner tonight! Everyone loved the corned beef, though I found it very strong tasting. Still lovely and I really enjoyed it.
Watching Legally Blonde 2, then going to bed. It's bloody tiring with a non-stop, yabbering 4 year old in the house I tell ya! *sigh*
