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

Smug WOYWW

Not being known for being completely organised, I am proud to announce that I have made, finished and packed up my PIF, ready for post NEXT week - that's one week ahead of schedule - that's previously unknown organisation in the world of Nicks

The desk today is also quite boringly tidy cos I had a visitor yesterday, an old school friend with whom I was reunited via Facebook - FB has alot of faults, but its got lots of good points! So here is a picture of my desk on Friday AFTER (yes AFTER) I had finished making the PIF, if you look very carefully you may just catch a  snippet of the PIF (have I mentioned that I have finished it??) but the rules of the game state that we can't blog  it before the day - so I haven't if you have no idea what I am talking about re 'PIF's' it a Pass it Forward bit of fun in celebration of two whole years of WOYWW or if you prefer 104 weeks of sharing desks. Check out the WOYWW button on the right hand side of this blog 

What I can share with you is a card I made using (surprise surprise) a new 'Octopode Factory' stamp. Meet Dorothy from the new Wizard of Oz collection.


I had all but given up making cards recently, but since doing a bit of Journaling and applying some of the techniques I have learnt and applying them to making cards I have started to enjoy it again.


Thing is I made the card and then found I didn't have a big enough envelope - so I just wrapped the card up instead!

Oh and just because I am feeling in a naughty and rebellious mood here are a couple of sneaky peaks of the PIF (which BTW, I have finished) 



(don't tell Julia the WOYWW queen, she may slap my wrists)

  3. HA - loving the sneak peeks - it doesn't look finished to me - a bit, well, thin?!! Can't wait to see it. Your desk looks as if you've been elsewhere - interested that you keep a little tray for bits and bobs, does it ever get emptied?

  21. Hi, now did I get this right? You've finished your PIF? Congratulations - I'm holding my head in shame :( I took a magnifier to the shot of your desk - looking for signs of the PIF - and your heat gun caught my eye. I'm curious, have you personalised it or was it that colour when you bought it? Have a great week. Elizabeth x #53
