The best made plans ...

It seems all my plans for this weekend have been way led by others. No big deal, except that I still have a list of things I must do, and would like to do, about the length of my arm, all before I go back to school tomorrow...

Oddly I did find time to find time to finish these mini clipboards ... So a swap, a gift and having learnt a little more - all achieved! Yeah! I will keep them next to me as I do some marking this afternoon - a reminder that I have had my fun, and that the garden is not calling me, that the list of ideas on my creative desk is one shorter.

I almost typed, 'perhaps next weekend', I thought it - then I gave myself a mental slap. I do not want to wish my life away waiting for the next moment. I want to enjoy the now. So off to see what progress my beautiful, hormonal, antsy, teenagers have made with this assessment.

Beautiful, beautiful clipboards Julie! The colors are so warm and golden..
Hope they keep you company during your marking this afternoon. And Hamish doesn't ' help' too much!
The weather over here is glorious today. Have been enjoying the sunshine and am now inside with the cats thinking about what I can play with next :)

Julie these are gorgeous. What have you covered them with? I meant to ask you when you sent me the ATC RAK the other day. It is glossy and I was wondering what sort of lacquer it was.
Have fun Nat

Hi Nat,

It is Shellac, the flakes are mixed with metho and I put a couple of coats on. I love that it is so rich a colour, dries really quickly and is really hard to go wrong with.

Thanks Julie. Do you buy that from somewhere like Bunnings?

Bit smelly too?
