READING GORGEOUS NEW MAGAZINES...DYEING CLOTHS & PAPER MACHE MANNEQUINS~~


Well i have had another busy day today...~~~~

Received my delivery of the AWE inspiring...

ARTFUL BLOGGING magazine...
Somerset HOME magazine..
Where Women Cook magazine..

ALL my Christmasssssss!! kind of came in one FELL SWOOP..so to speak..

SOO in between reading them..

I embellished another couple of my paper mache dressmaker's dummies...
(not finished yet)...& still have several more to do..

I use VINTAGE patterns to cover them...

& this process has now creeped up into my kitchen area..

My crafting stuff is SLOWLY but SURELY creeping into nearly every room of my home!!~~~

Dyed some gorgeous cloths in pinks/purples/greens...EYE CANDY MIX...
Plus dyed a piece of cream hessian a light mauve..just to see how it would look..

looks okay...so I have a few ideas as to what i would like to do with it.....

But to get back to the magazines...
GORGEOUS PHOTOs...

& I am just "hanging out" to find a cheapish vintage mirror which I can embellish with FRENCH script...(per photos)...

Anyway...that has been my Thursday (amongst other very important matters I DID attend to...~~)...

I've just read that issue of Artful Blogging. These are such great magazines - what a pity we have to wait so long for them to arrive!
Enjoy your weekend Andrea.
