Honestly

This week has flown by, and yet it seems to have lasted forever.

I completed two days marking and school work; I had a whole set of assignments which took 20minutes each to mark and resorted to bribery. No not the students, me - 'Do two and you can wash the dishes', 'Do two and you can hang out the washing', 'Oh OK, after the next two you can walk the dog', pathetic I know. However I have the concentration span of a gnat and it got the job done. I spent a full day in bed (snoozing), did a detox fast (which sounds all healthy and righteous until I tell you I broke it with baked beans and cheese on toast!). Oh yes, and I completed some commissions. Do you notice how I say that airily as if it is the most common thing in the world. Oh OK (gosh you are being pedantic today. That's right it is me, I have not published this yet; I really want to be dramatic - but honesty is winning out), I am calling them my commissions, but one was a necklace for my Mum to give as a gift and the other a bracelet requested by a friend.

The ATC's above are the start of those I will take to umm Stamp Camp to swap - oops just realised there is no stamping on them, giggles... perhaps they will come to you instead.

Julie - I love the colours you have used in the ATC's they are very appropriate as the colours surrounding me turn from greens to Autumns.

These ATCs are fantastic! I love the colors. At first I thought they were done on rusty pieces of metal but then I clicked the picture to make it bigger and it looks like paper! Whatever you used I like them.

Woohhhooo for you Julie. Your first commission is a big deal, hope the work continues to pour in for you. Your beautiful jewellery deserves the recognition. Love the ATC's. Big hugs Nat

Just flown over via Dotee's to say hello and have a linger over your words and art. Laughed at your bribery rewards to yourself - I do something similar - some housework then a cuppa and read a blog helps if the cuppa is in a mug of course *!*
