Well I do hope you are all warm and well!!!
Now, I have something to share with you today.... but this is on the absolute promise that it stays between you and I and goes no further.... Do you promise???? Sure???? Ok then, I'll continue...
Firstly, I'm going to share with you a project I designed today. It is an idea I have had for a short while - you know the kind that floats around for a while and then all of the sudden the time comes when you just HAVE to make it!
This design uses the little taxi cab die from the latest Xcut die Build A Scene "London" dies... to make the soft top cars just chop off the top of the rooves! The stamp is one of the free designs from the January/ February Creativity magazine (so go and get your copy now if you haven't already) and gorgeous Papermania Capsule Spots and Stripes papers, ribbons and Baker's Twine... I just can't get enough of this range - it goes with ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING!!!
It really is such a simple design but great fun!!!!
So today I did manage to get to my demo, despite rather slippery roads... admittedly the journey there was somewhat better than the journey back... but this morning I decided that as my local Range store where I was demonstrating is notoriously chilly in the middle of winter I would dress in several layers safe in the knowledge that as I warmed up I could remove a layer if necessary. So I started off with 3 tops, two pairs of socks, a thermal hat and a scarf on with a few other accessories with me in case of need...
My rather Michelin-man style attire is what lead me to announce on my facebook page, Becky James, that the Abominable Snow-woman Demonstrator had safely arrived at her destination.... And as a result a request was made by my lovely fellow demonstrator and friend,Docrafts Create and Craft Superstar Jo Austin to see a picture.... And here is where my absolute embarrassment begins for tonight.... So Jo - I'm blaming you for this one, my friend!
Now, I must stand up for myself at this point... I do not normally look this bad... In fact our fabby Emma Collins very graciously commented when we were recording Creativity TV earlier this week I do scrub up well!!!
So what you need to bear in mind is that by the end of the day far from getting warmer it was a tad bit chillier and the afore mentioned items of clothing had not diminished at all - but had infact increased by a rather large fleece, pair of gloves and a hot water bottle.... So now you all know what I looked like six months ago before I lost two stone in weight... Actually, I think I look like I had put on three stone in a matter of hours...
Ok, here we go - just so that you know should you ever come across one this is what a lesser spotted Abominable Snow-woman Docrafts demonstrator looks like... SCAREY EH????
But please don't panic... should you come into contact with this member of the species do not be alarmed!!! Under all that padding a very bubbly, fun loving much thinner female can be found!!!
I should just add that this the best of a VERY bad bunch of photographs!!!
Anyway, I'd love to know what you think of tonight's project and if it is something you'd have a go at yourself...
I have to wait to see what our roads are like tomorrow to guage what I will be doing where... so stay safe everyone and enjoy the rest of your evening!
Tatty bye for now
