it's been a while.

3:28:00 PM

so sorry for being missing for a while...it's been downhill all the way. is it just me or does time just fly by as soon as we hit September - everything seems to happen all at once. in between being busy with other stuff, i have been scrapping too. my days have been filled with making cards, prepping and kitting for our annual card making retreat in October, painting furniture for clients, more photo shoots, designing classes, spring cleaning my home and scrapping stuff, helping out in the community to name a few! but alas it is time for another sketch and this time it is my sketch! this sketch is now up over at scrapbook challenges! so go and see what the rest of the team came up with - some awesome samples!
my layout features one of my new found loves lately...vintage goodies!
some vintage buttons...bliss
and a couple of techniques featuring paint and perfect pearl mists...
my apologies for not even letting you know that i would be MIA for a while. you see i have found a new love...for painting that is...furniture! it all started with a friend's dining room table and chairs that needed a serious make-over from black to french. well, it was quite the challenge since we here in the dark African continent of south Africa can only dream of the beautiful Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and wax. aah you see this is why i could live happily ever after in another country that has stuff - stuff that i want to use - stuff that can fulfill my life even more. since the new found love i have done a smaller table, working on an old bench and cupboard and many more lined up it seems. it's hard work let me tell you - which i love - i love getting down and dirty! and then i have discovered the beautiful blogs of girls professional and non-professional who paint and restore and repair and i am sick with envy - and elated at the same time as i spend hours drooling and following links and getting new ideas! ah the wonderful world that is creativity! the world of paint! now to choose a new colour for the front door...
hope you are having a good week - i promise to be back soon with some more crafty stuff and maybe some painted french furniture pics. thanks for hanging around, understanding, for being human and just being supportive. i appreciate you all!
