Coffee Pot - Wonky Tonks again!

Hello there! Thanks so much for your comments on my last two DT posts - you are very kind and I really do appreciate you taking the time to leave your thoughts - thankyou!

Things are all happening here - I am having my kitchen ripped out all ready for a new one going in - this was the scene on Monday evening ...

Glorious eh? I'll take some more later today when the main guts of the kitchen have been put in - hopefully!!!

On Monday I was on duty at coffeepot - I decided to take my wonky tonks along and let the ladies play - they loved the stamps and I know Diana will be buying some! Here's what I actually made during the session which was very relaxed.

I mixed two sets together here - but I do like the result ...

I carried through the Tracy Easson words around the head.

I will be trying these girls with mixed media designs soon - I do love them so very much!!

Things are not brilliant with my dad - he's still with us but has a very poor quality of life. Its awful to see him - and its so heartbreaking for my mum. Life can be so hard at times can't it?

Have a great day whatever it is you're doing.

Big Hugs ...
