WOYWW & Kona Kid Krafters

WOYWW this week - Oooh I'm busy busy this week! I've got loads of stuff to do and 3 orders in so thats 2 done at the back, I'm doing a DT card for monday which is also a RAK for a girl off a forum. She wants to thank someone who's been kind to her and I liked that the thought was there so I'm making her a couple of RAKs she can give. One is a pollycraft bear (shhh you havent seen it already lol!) I'm normally quite last minute.com with DT cards but I'm off up to Skipton for the weekend to go and play at The Stampmans demo weekend. If you're up that way pop on in and heckle me mwhaha!

What else on my hob desk - oh BTW to those concerned last week that one of the hob rings appeared to be on, its ALWAYS switched off at the wall. Force of habit, I have 2 toddlers with little fingers who like to turn things and 11 years experience of risk assessment lol!

I have my usual promarkers in various shades of orange and brown and I'd not long opened my mail and have a lovely card off my teamie Jack with some lavinia stamps in (FANKOO xxx) also arrived today from Cuddly Buddly were DIAMOND DAZZLES glimmer mist YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!! I have been after this for over 2 months. The place I originally ordered from dont seem to be able to get it and finally offered an alternative a couple of weeks back which I gave but havent heard anything from them since :/
I spotted it in stock at cuddly buddly over the weekend and it arrived today along with SWAK which s a lovely hot pink colour :D
Not much else on desk today except some wild orchid flowers and some little white ones I'd just dyed yellow with a promarker.



This is Molly and she is my icklest baby. Molly is very mischievous and VERY VERY messy! She was 2 last month and a couple of weeks ago I bought her some winnie the pooh pots to paint. All was going well until I left the table to make a drink and came back to her like this!! She is always up to nonsense, you cannot turn your back on her! Last week she 'washed' the stairs with quarter of a bottle of fairy liquid - my vax was NOT happy! Then it was the glamour dust poured over the duvet - you get the picture...


Anyway there is a challenge blog specifically for kids called Kona Kid Krafters and their challenge is "Bling it Up" so Miss Mookins got to work today on her creation below :) She used some gems, pasta I've dyed with starburst stains so its sparkly, glitter glue and crayons lol! I liked that she knew to use a green crayon which you cant see much but she did it. This was zero help from me, I was gabbing on phone to Jill from Stampman whilst Mols created.

So if you're looking for something to amuse the kds over the summer check out Kona Kid Krafters blog :D

Oh bahahahahaha I love it. My DD 2.5yrs would do the same thing. I hate leaving her with pencils at the bench or table for a few as she always gets down and thinks the walls are great paper. LOL. I share you pain. hahaha sorry you have given me the best giggle ever. I am glad it isn't just me.

As for you desk - well it looks just like mine does. Nice and neat and organized LOL. Good one.

Cath Wilson said...

Fancy meeting you here, lol. What a NEAT desk - you're so organised!! Love seeing the work in progress, though. Molly's a dream - or is that a nightmare, he, he.

Jane said...

Oh Vix!!! Your Hob...What a mess...and your "icklest" doesn't look too clean either (HA!HA!) I think a picture of ProMarkers just casually positioned on a hob should be in the TATE! I'd stand & drool for hours...as for the offspring...well I'd tie her to the washing line & get out that hose!!!

Rita said...

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah, reassuring news about the hob! Great pic of your ickle gal, am happy to report that mine never managed that sort of mischief - and don't ask me how or why...parenthood is a complete 'wing it' mystery to me!! How generous of you to make RAKS for someone to RAK. And they are all lovely.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

A budding artist, if you ask me. Of course, I also see a big mess! But the cards are quite clever. Sorry I'm late getting here. There are so many of us now. Happy belated WOYWW on Saturday!

Michelle said...
