Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Been told off....

for not updating my blog for a few days.... well I've been busy altering another matchbox for the above person....

It reads....
"There is nothing finer in this here world than a friend who is smug and wears........"
Stripey socks
Now I could relate a long and sorry tale about the history and story about this friend and this quote, but it is nothing more than the plain fact that she is very talented, so quite rightly smug (gawd help us if she wins the ATC competition at Ally Pally this weekend for the third year running, we will never hear the end of it) and lives in a strange Zetti like world of her own.... so if she doesn't wear stripey socks then she jolly well should!

Not long now till my twice yearly treat of taking myself off to Alexandra palace in London and The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show... a weekend staying with my bessie mate... meeting up with lots of other friends and a bit of a spend on crafty goodies....... what could be finer???


  1. this is lovely nicks xx love the socks

  2. i haven't a scobby who would by chance be speaking about - but boy oh boy i have a stunningly similar altered matchbox that was made for me but one awesome artist dont suppose by chance you know her ROFL. funny i'm also going to Ally Pally and ermmmm i do believe i may have made a cracker of an ATC now is it a winner well we will see if the great Norfolk one enters, if she does then i dont have a chance. I also got a second stunning altered matchbox made by the artist's daughter - Georgina, and i think someone should be worried that they may be overthrown from their creative throne

  3. Nicks...this little matchbox is just too cool and you had me laughing with the quote. Love it :)

  4. well they are ok I suppose lol BUt have to say through gritted teeth they are great

  5. wonderful ideas, so creative
