Hi there, I have been trying to put a post and some pictures on FB but after 15 minutes of "freeze" I have given up. So I thought I would do a Blog instead, I am way overdue a blog anyway. So its not like me but I don't think I have even shown you all my cards that were on TV with Tom of SplodgeAway and Maria Simms the other week. Some were shown on the SplodgeAway Blog but they weren't necessarily my favorite ones - if truth be told I don't think I sent photos of them all - that so wouldn't have happened with me a few months ago?????
I have been really busy lately with crafting and helping out with the Shows and doing work for other DT's etc (more about that later) that when I was stood in the kitchen cooking the other day my kids stepped back in amazement - I had to announce "Mammy is Back in the Kitchen" ! My hubbie does an OK job but he never does Veg? Their response? "Oh NO"!! Well they should have behaved themselves for Daddy shouldn't they.
Anyway I wanted to talk about the Pay it Forward Craft scheme that Paula Whittaker has set up on FB - I think it started with her, I missed her last shout out but got my name on this one, I will put the rules on FB if it will let me???
So basically you offer 5 pieces of art, tags, cards, whatever you want to do, to the first five people who put their name forward on your post. Then they send their address and you send the item to them at any time over the next year, I think element of surprise is part of this too. But those five people must offer the same on their face book to keep passing it forward. A good idea I think as long as everyone keeps to their promise.
So I am the lucky one I got Paula Whittaker - OK so if your name is on my timeline - you got me, but look on the bright side, my work is a bit eclectic so it will definately be a surprise? And you never know you might even get a piece that has been on TV - a "famous piece" if you like? OK I am getting carried away again, I am an excitable person when it comes to crafts!!! Anyway if no-one puts their name forward I will just have to add a few of my friends so that no-one knows that my work is not wanted!!!!
Here are a few "Famous" items from the last TV show with Tom and Maria for your perusal.
See you soon
