Thanks! @SoSewMegan! I’m thrilled you were delighted with it…I never tire of your boats, I love them. They remind me of drawings my son used to churn out of fishing boats with their catch in nets over the side - a normal sight for him as he grew up in a Cornish Fishing Village.
Evening folks yay happy dancing for sales Sarah, Sally, Louise and Simone
Loving the chat about creative mess, I’m very fortunate that hubby is retired but I still work full time so he does pretty much everything at home, I barely lift a finger on housework or ironing, in fct I’m not actally alowed to touch anything, he gets cross if I even try, he’s very particlar lol! I do love to cook though, and I do the deep cleaning, steam the carpets, most of the decorating etc so we do split the workload sort of lol! There is just the two of us mind so it doesn’t get messy. I work upstairs and he works out the garage. My craftroom is full to bursting and I like to work with everything around me, I do clean up at the end of the day but since everything is close enough to grab it never looks tidy. Hubby is the opposite he has everything boxed and labelled, he labels mine too, bit of a running joke in our house, everything is labelled. He just put a label on my mug for work in case someone pinches it
Evening all. Hope you all had a good day. Ignored tidying/cleaning further by going to (big)town today …Had to drop son off , so thought we would make a shopping trip I should have stayed home decluttering! (always on my to do list )
I got a Monsoon voucher for Xmas and thought there must be something in there to buy…I was wrong .Rails of the same cheaply made , but very EXPENSIVE things. If only it had been a Folksy voucher.
Nevermind . I did have a sale last night woohoo
Welcome to the daily listing thread Daniel @danheffer - your artwork is very appropriate to the thread today as we have been chatting about our creative clutter - or we could call it chaos - lol!
Look forward to seeing more of your work here.
I’ve been clearing up,and attempting to sell my husbands scuba diving gear this weekend, phew what a job, but the garage will be a lot emptier once it is all gone, mmmmm I wonder what I could put in that space, lol!
I’ve just been re-arranging my Folksy shop in shopkeeping - it’s like playing one of those little slidey games where you have to move all the little squares around to make the right picture - it’s such a faff. My thumb and wrist are really aching now!
ETA - woooooh hooooooo, another sale @paperchainsandbeads x
I think hubby has taken on board the ‘if you can’t beat them, join them’ school of thought and manages some creative clutter of his own - he enjoys photography - which involves time on the computer, so he has one end of the dining room table and I have the other plus lots of other space for my beads!
Haven’t got much done this weekend, poorly child, poorly o/h. But it’s a new week tomorrow, and I glued some brooches ready for when I get some quiet time!
Lots of snow today, we were caught in a hailstorm and the van skidded all over the place coming over the moors, thankfully o/h drives everywhere in his job, and avoided crashing amazingly. Glad I wasn’t driving tbh! He changed two light fittings and put some nice shades up today as well, so I guess he’s in my good books. Hehe.
Just finished the last chocolate in the box and discovered another layer underneath! Must be a good omen! Al the talk of creative clutter (rife in this house) has prompted me to take a big step. I have actually ordered a proper workbench! Until now I’ve been making do with one of those little folding benches. I borrowed it from the garage and send it back there whenever the kids come! Looking forward to having some drawers to put my tools in and a tidier workspace. It won’t last long. Goodnight.
Good morning. A cold one this morning and I think someone may have turned my heating off! Trouble is I have to venture downstairs to my sisters house to turn it back on which involves getting out of my warm bed!
I think I may have a scarf day today - lots of ideas in my head to try out so we will see if they come to anything
