Dearest Minions
This is my entry to this weeks challenge. I always liked what Dave Allen used to say "may what ever God you believe in go with you."

Masking card

Dearest Minions,

There was a brilliant article in Craft Stamper a couple of months ago regarding masking and then stamping over it, so here are my versions of it.

kickass glass case

Dearest Minions,

Inspired by the new Pretty Reckless album- Light me up, I made this rock and roll case for er.. my glasses. I have done the whole black finger nail polish and goth rock thing, but I never stopped liking the music.

I like walking passed some of the Emos, while wearing my business suit and thinking "I was watching New Model Army while you were cuddling Elmo."

Excellent books

Dearest Minions,
                             I am very much enjoying Susanna Gregory's books not only would I highly recommend them, but they are also recommended by the evil Dr Nebula. 

There are two different series, one set is set in restoration London which is excellent as it gives a personal view of a turbulent time. A time full of religious zealots and economic instability.....hhhmmmmmm.

The other is set in Medieval Cambridge, the first book features the black death. Facts and figures do not convey the scope of the devastation. Go into work and look at your co-workers, one person in three died, in some villages everyone died. Hard to think of it.

The Artisan Show

Dearest Minions,

 the cult of Tim Holtz
As the broom stick wasn't working I had to drive to the Artisan show on Friday. Three hours drive there and three hours drive back in pouring rain and it was actually worth it.

I met some excellent people such as the staff from creative moments who had a brilliant range of Tim Holtz products and a great price on distress re-inkers.

I also met Katy Fox and Helen Chilton from Craft Stamper magazine, they were really interesting to talk to and were really nice to boot.

fellow crafty women
As I had come so far I signed up for a work shop with Crafty Individuals it which I made something removed from my usual style. I would defiantly recommend doing a work shop if you go to a show as they really give yo a taste of something different. You also get to meet fellow crafters/evil overlords.

not my usual style but good clean fun

There were some excellent stalls and the restaurant wasn't bad either
however there were some strange and slightly evil sheep in the grounds of the exhibition center. I got the feeling that they were bidding their time before invasion.
