Admin.

 Hello there!
Right, not much to share work wise, but a few pictures of the usual.
Making pocket mirrors & badges:
Tiny little parcel:
 Goody bags from my giveaway yonks ago (again, I'm super disorganised):

It seems to have been one of those weeks where you spend a lot of time doing life admin. Hours have been spent on the phone trying to sort out car insurance or driving around not seeming to get anywhere or failing MOTs or hanging about in horrible shops calculating how much you have spent/can afford to spend/what you are even doing in the first place!

Tomorrow we are off to Cornwall for a week, to a place where my dad has been going since he was four. He learned to swim in the rock pools. It's a tradition. I can't wait to fall asleep to the sound of the waves & wake up to do the cross word & feel all cold & salty from the sea. (when I say 'do the cross word' I mean 'hold the pen whilst reading out the clues & filling in the answers so I feel like I'm the cleaver one).

It won't be too much of a holiday though as I am taking my sewing machine/computer/camera/PVA. I will be spending most of my time making costumes for our up coming festival tour with Videopia (facebook) (blog). I'll explain more next week with some pictures of my Jungle Book/Jurassic Park/Jaws creations...

I hope everyone is feeling less pissed off about the rubbish things than me. Anyone going anywhere nice on their holidays? I'd love to hear of nice things to dream about.

This makes me happy.

  2. Have a great trip! Cornwall sounds absolutely lovely, I've never been. I'm going to France for two weeks on Sunday so it's been a frenzy of packing and getting things ready. Travel safe! :)

    1. Ahhh camping is very brave. We were camping on the Isle of Wight at the end of last summer & it was like a hurricane. Hope the weather will be okay for you. Lots of camp fires & roasting marshmallows will make it better I'm sure :)

  6. Funny - I just got back from a week in Cornwall and I too took my sewing machine to do a few sewing projects! http://hollyhocklane.co.uk/ We had 3 good days - I hope you get lucky - this rain is pretty dreary but at least Cornwall is pretty.
