A lovely rainy Sunday!

Hello Everybody!

How is your weekend going? We had a sunny Saturday - actually quite hot - it was 28 deg C in Ljubljana! I went to the market early in the morning, then did some gardening and in the afternoon I popped over to Trieste, Italy with my daughter and did a bit of shopping! I bought 3 tops, but the one I really like is the one with a Missoni pattern ! Missoni patterns are quite trendy this year but to find one in my size is almost a missoni impossible! So I am quite happy!
Going on to today - Sunday we have lovely rain all day! Usually I would moan about rain but it was really needed - the soil was getting so dry it almost had cracks! And there was so much pollen around that even people who don't have hay fever got it! But the reason I am really enjoying this rainy Sunday is that I can do things that I want to do but don't have time or the will to do during the week when I struggle with the full time job! For the first time in my life I tried serviette technique! As I am preparing to do the whole FAT with Donna of Doings of Doone I thought I better try this! I bought art potch and made something I can not blog about yet but I will when the certain thing reaches the person it was made for! So happy to be able to try all these different techniques! I am not usually so adventuress but it seems that these FAT videos have given me the courage to do things out of my comfort zone -  thank you so much Donna!
Oh yes and here comes a bit of a moan! Besides the nice stuff I have also been doing the most boring job a stamper has to do - sticking rubber stamps to Kling-On and cutting them out! What is most frustrating is the sticking of the b..... thing to the scissors! HUH!!!!! Now I went all out because I have had enough of this and bought the very famous TIM HOLTZ NON STICK SCISSORS! Yeh right! They are only a very expensive stick!!!! And here are photos to prove it.....




Here is the proof!



I used alcohol to clean off all the horrible glue  - I guess I should have had a sip of it myself being so frustrated! ha, ha..... I know a lot of you ladies love TH stuff and I also buy a lot of his things but I will say this load and clear - his stuff is not always what it says it is and everything is too damn expensive! So there I have said it!!!
Ok then I am off to watch more of Donnas videos - enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I will see you tomorrow with something I have made over the weekend!
Oh yes I almost forgot to comment on the blogger frustration - lots of you girls have commented on my Birthday - WOYWW post but I couldn't get back to you - I will try to get back to all of you during the evening! Thank you to all of you for your kind wishes!
Lots of hugs and love to all,
Cardarian

  1. Hello my friend. I can share your frustration with that job, but when I read you had just the scissors for it I thought you would be ok! What a shame they do not do what they say they will!
