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

Chuffed and Hounoured for the second time this week!!!

Not only did I receive a lovely surprise through the post yesterday from the lovely Nicki Macrae, of a Soapstone Carving Kit - mmm watch this space, she's one to challenge my creative talents! Not only that but she has featured me on her Blog as one of her 'Creative Hero's' - bless ya Nicki, but yes I did do the 'Tut - Oh get away bit' - Now you must check out her website, Nicki Paints if you want to see some gorgeous art!

Not only that but I am pleased to announce that progress is going well on the odd 'Balls' I made at my first 'Upcycle' class... not quite finished, but there has been a bit of a delay because Matt was ill last Thursday so I couldn't go to class and I missed the Rag Rugging class--- how bloomin inconsiderate of him! -  He did feel a bit guilty though, which was just well because when he re-emerged from the bedroom, looking vaguely human again, he was quite amiable with the announcement, 'don't feel bad Darling, because Meg is doing a full days course dedicated to Needle Felting and Rag Rugging and I have booked myself in, as a Mothers Day treat' which I think was very kind of me because 1. It stops him feeling bad and 2. It saves him trailing the kids round looking for a pressie for me...... So whoopee doo that's where I am off tomorrow!

Oh last nights class was Freeform Knitting....and I was lucky enough to obtain a huge bag of wool through FreeCycle, so more of that to come! So many creative things to explore and so little time!

So all in all its been a good week..... Excuse me, I must just go and find a few t-shirts and things that I am sure the family don't want anymore..... (as long as they are the right colours!)

Ooooo UPDATE.... can things get any better?? Just received a lovely parcel from The Altered Element
so much playing to do and so little time as I have now got to go and help at Ed's School
