Dot loved the box

thankfully. I was pleased.

Going to do some ATC trailing again now - have signed up and will get them done this week. Gotta do overtime at work now we are so short staffed though - so won't have a lot of time.

The box. I usually embellish the lid last, this time I did it first. Happy with it all so far.

Dot at work asked for a twin sister 60th Birthday exploding box

She's such a lovely lady that I decided to do it - she wanted a 'seaside' theme as her sister (her twin) has a place down in Carbis Bay in Cornwall - hope I do it justice and she likes what I create. It's very difficult creating for other people when you don't know their family or friends etc. Anyway, I did the top of the box tonight.
Got the shells from Hobbycraft (AND the amount of shells I have thrown away over the years when the kids brought em back from holiday and you just never know what to do with them) LOL.
I thought the Sizzix swirl die cut on my cuttlebug was rather appropriate as a sea-wave.
Just got to creat the rest of the box and put all the pictures in she gave me to include.
Loving this so far.

Inchies - I've made a book

Or should I say - making a book. It will incorporate inchies and twinchies and ATC's that I've made - not received.

Back on the trail -

Love the effect of the angel hair over the friendly plastic when it's very hot - kinda squidgies through the plastic and makes it bumpy - great technical terms huh.
Been playing with friendly plastic - quite a few disasters though and a few burned fingers !

I shall be foiling everything now ! although already running short.

A pic of the net - rediscovered my transfer foil after a bit of a tidy up in the craft area.

and i thought i was looking slimmer -

I am still HUGE - really disappointed with myself now. The full length version of this pic is horrendous. Gotta get down to 10 stones.

SW - still messing about

Thought it would be a STS this week - it wasn't it was a half a pound ON.................disappointed with myself.

keep getting to 10.13 and then back to 11 stones and then back to 10.13 - am now 10.13/5 - so still under 11 stones and bought a regular pair of size 14 trousers - jeans are size 12, so it's not all too bad. Gotta stop beating myself up over a half a pound.

Don't know whether to call target, I won't pay then unless I go below 3lb's of target??? BUT then no more awards and I think I really want to be 10.3 as a final target - so will see how I go over the next couple of weeks.

Back into the plan from today so hopefully a couple of pounds off this week - which will definitely spur me on.

Been doing 'inchies' LOVE inchies and twinchies and thrinchies - etc - might make some ATC's with inchies on to dive back into my ATC trail on UKS.

We'll see.
