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

It's nearly the summer holidays here!

My two break-up on Tuesday, which means pressies for the teacher time! I never know what to get the teachers so show them how much we appreciate their hard work throughout the year, I know they appreciate any gift they receive, but they must get fed up with chocolates/plants/smellies! So here is something a bit different for them, and I managed them all with a single burn to any digit!
Now I know there looks like there are alot here, but Edward goes to our village school which is very small, only 48 pupils, which means all the teachers get involved with the children and know them all very well. Consequently Edward doesn't consider his teacher as his only teacher, so they all have to have a present - classroom assistants and head teacher as well, he adores them all.
I was in the middle of trying to sort my craft room yesterday when Edward came through and demanded another 4 key rings, so it's kinda a mess again! I seem to hoard so much stuff that will one day come in useful or that I can alter it is like trying to fit a gallon into a pint pot! So I will have another attempt today in-between all the usual Sunday stuff.
Now.... bit of advice please.. although I am sure Duckface aka SSO will put me straight on Tuesday when she visits to impart some of her knowledge, why when I solder do I ruin my tips?? Must be doing something drastically wrong, I am 'tinning' calling all soldering experts please!!


  1. ahhh shucks great effort at pretending i would know something you dont!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! your soldering iron tips do go - tis a downside of soldering - nowt you can do to change this - well other than......
    great hey rings Ed could sell them in the playground for some extra pocket money LOL

  2. i would'nt mind getting one of them lol

  3. wish I was a teacher !
