The decorating is done..Hooray!!well on that room anyways, it's never ending really isn't it? By the time you've gone through the whole house it's time to start over in the first room again. I've been trying to convince hubby that the living room needs doing but he's not keen . It doesn't really but I've hated the wallpaper on the feature wall since about a week after I put it up ...I might have to damage it ..by accident of course : p lol
>>>Sorry for the lack of posting over the last few days. I had the silly, Sorry VERY silly idea to do a bit of decorating..Why do these things always take much longer than first expected eh? Hopefully normal service will resume this weekend. :)
.....but different bears though :p Maybe I should change my blog name to A load of old bears??? eh eh ?
I decided to have another go at Fimo. The last attempt about 2 years ago latest for all of an hour before I lobbed all the clay back in the box and screamed DISASTER DARLING!!!
My first attempt this time was a little better
Although as you can see I got the proportions a little wrong lol
By that time a was getting used to it and made this little beaut
Complete with jewels lol
Not very often I say this cos I generally find it hard to blow my own trumpet...but I am well proud of this second one ..I think I did good especially for a second attempt, no books etc.what do you reckon??
I can't wait to have another play, got to go and get some more fimo though ( I can see hubbies eyes rolling now lol)
Remember me telling you that the lovely people at the Daylight company asked me if I would agree to trial one of their daylight table lamps? Well the little beaut arrived last week and I couldn't wait to get it set up and working. It was packaged brilliantly and had super simple instructions for assembly. I say assembly lightly mind as It was really just take it out of the box and slot the lamp into the base lol
When I first received it I was surprised at how big it was but as you can see it fits nicely on my table top and because it has such a long reach I can position it directly over my work if needs be with no worry about it toppling over as the base is heavy making it very sturdy indeed. The magnifier is also super handy . If I'm honest I'm not sure I would have gone for one with a magnifier but now I've got it I can see it is gonna come in useful for so many things. It's great for colouring as you can get into the little fiddly bits no probs and it will also come in super useful for my crochet work too and no need to worry about it getting damaged or the sun shining on it and burning anything as you can see in the piccie it comes with a cute little protective cover..yes they really have thought of everything! lol
The reason for me wanting a daylight lamp in the first place was because my little room is facing the wrong way and can be quite dark especially in this awful blighty weather and we all know how hard it can be to match colours if we do any crafting at night! Well I was actually shocked how much light this lamp gives off and the quality of it too! It really is just like natural light..shocking how much truer colours are too!
So my verdict is in and it scores 10 out of ten for me. So mr Daylight Company I hope you don't want it back cos you'll have to fight me for it lol
Christmas is fast approaching so it's time to start making the odd crimbo card I suppose. As much as it grieves me to even mention the C word so early it has to be done doesn't it ??? hopefully this year I can avoid the run round like a headless chicken scene ..lol
Well after my experiment yesterday with the box for my sis. I thought I'd have another go but this time incorporating a card too.
As you all now I have a bit of a thing for bears. Well out of all the bears in all the world this little cutie is my absolute fave ...Coco from digistamp Boutique = utterly and gorgeously cute!

Pop over to the shop and have a nose...go on you now you want to!
Quite excited today as this just came :) :) :)
Remember I was asking a couple of weeks ago for advice as to which daylight lamp to buy
Well the lovely peeps over at The Daylightcompany have very kindly asked me to do a review on one of their lamps. I do get asked quite a lot to do reviews on this and that but generally I decline ...but how could I refuse one of these beauts eh?
It'll be out the box and in full test mode very shortly and I'll be back to tell you what I think
Thanks for stopping by today and for all your lovely comments over the past few weeks/ I know I am being a bit of a bad blogger again recently...apologies
