June - Day 9
Well haven't I had a busy day today - we've been carrying on clearing out the office and rooms beyond (which are a utility room, shoe / coat room and toilet) and bashing holes in plaster looking for where wires come in!
Me and SHMbO also went to a birthday party for one of her classmates - it was held at a local soft-play area. Oh My Word I don't think I will ever get used to those places!!! When you add in 25 children (from one class) plus a dozen others who were just playing there it was manic!! Also SHMbO wasn't feeling too good either, so we had a few tears and arguing - we're doing it all again on Friday for another party.
Anyway enough of my day, I'm really here to do my 'post a day in June' post. Today the prompt is:
Day 9: Tell us who your favourite crafter, doesn’t have to be anyone famous , just sing their praises OR Craft something for a male recipient
Now then, I really couldn't begin to tell you who my favourite crafter is - there are so many people's blogs that I follow for various reasons - their colouring ability, style, chat, eye for paper matching.
I don't really follow any 'famous' crafters, I might watch some craft TV but the people I do see on it don't really appeal to me. Maybe it's because they aren't given enough time to properly show what they're doing, as I like colouring stamps and they aren't given time to colour with any detail!, or because there's a lot of CD crafting out there which I don't do. So they don't do it for me.
If you are looking for a bit of inspiration tho - I can thoroughly recommend just a few of my favourite bloggy peeps:
Rebekah - Rebekah's been my bloggy-friend pretty much since I started blogging, she gave me my first DT post and I will always be grateful. Also she is amazing at colouring and embellishments.
Coops - Nic is just out of this world for colouring using Promarkers - I always drool over her colouring - she manages heavily embellished to CaS in a snap and is a really lovely person.
Faye - Well what this lady can't do with Copic's ain't worth knowing. She has an amazing eye for detail as well - her cards are always just so and just perfect! She's quite bonkers as well, but (shhhh) we don't mention that!!!!!
Catherine - And now for something completely different - if you are looking for arty, go see Catherine. Love her style, can't do it, but love looking at it!! She's also a lovely person in real life too.
Susan - Another bloggy-friend who makes wonderful cards. Just don't mention the word 'pink' - it's banned!
Lisa - Just amazing colouring -again (can you see a theme here!) - I would love to have just a touch of Lisa's style as well. I think I'd die happy!!
Christine - Another fabulous lady and a Princess of Pink living in a Pinkie Palace. Tho at the moment I'm green when I visit as she's just got onto the DT over at Sugar Nellie and I'm envious!!!!
Well there you go, you can sort of get an idea of what sort of crafting I do / follow from looking at these ladies blogs - I promise a wander around them won't be a waste of time.
I hope I don't offend anyone by whom I haven't mentioned - this isn't an exhaustive list and it could've been miles long - you just have to see who I'm following to see that! But the wonderful ladies above give you just a flavour of what my bloggy world is like.
Got to go now, got school run in the morning and more blogging and demolishing to do!!
