I have been thoroughly spoilt by my children today, it being Mothering Sunday. Our son has a ridiculous sense of humour and I couldn't resist showing you the envelope of his card, obviously written in his 'bestest' writing! He can be quite sensible but is a 56 year old lovable loony!
I have been pondering for ages on whether to buy myself a Gelli plate and finally succumbed last week. If I'd been an impulse buyer I could have saved myself nearly £5 - the price has shot up since I last looked at them. I haven't had time to try it out yet but am looking forward to some messy playtime. I had also looked at a Big Shot embossing and cutting machine but they are very expensive and I'm not sure I would make the most of one. Also, I think I would find it limiting having to use the dies and plates that someone else has designed, rather than creating my own. The Gelli plate is quite a different tool of course, but it will encourage me to develop my newly found drawing skills and create my own designs.
Friday was such a cold, wet and miserable day - I couldn't believe the weekend forecast was for warmth
and sunshine, but it arrived right on time. I hope it continues a bit longer - I've become a fair weather gardener and want to get out to sow some seeds in the garden and the greenhouse.
I hope you have had a lovely weekend too.
