I meant to thank you all for the lovely comments on my ‘art gallery’ hall the other week, but forgot. I’ve never thought of it as an art gallery – I feel quite posh now!
I haven’t done anything with the slate yet. I’ve got an engraving tool, but I’ve obviously put it somewhere ‘safe’ as I can’t find it! I’ve been looking on Pinterest for ideas and might have to invest in some etching cream and some pretty napkins.
I’ve managed to sell a few retired Stampin’ Up! sets this week on Ebay. A couple of them went for quite a lot, which was nice. I’ve also finished the wedding card for one of the church regulars. Getting all the electronic signatures was even more difficult than it usually is when I’ve got a physical card for signing! It seemed simple to me: write what you’d write if it was in a card, take a photo of it and email it to me. But, no, some folk just couldn’t do it. I had to arrange to meet some of them at the church building and get them to write on a piece of paper that I then took home, photographed, and put into a Publisher document. I had great fun editing them all, rotating them, squeezing them into small gaps. I’ve just had an awful thought – did I photograph the front of the card before posting it?
Phew! Yes, I did remember! I have, however, forgotten to put their names and the date on it….! Oh, well, too late now!
I popped into town yesterday to buy some more iron-on interfacing from our local fabric shop. People are starting to emerge. In fact, it was almost like a normal July day except that nearly everyone’s wearing a mask. I had to gently discourage someone that was trying to feed a seagull (will they never learn?). You can get fined in Conwy County for feeding the gulls. People don’t realise what a nuisance they are. I’ve seen them take the food out of someone’s hand when it was almost in their mouth. When we had family visiting one year we bought fresh doughnuts on the pier. Kevin turned around to say, “Now be careful the seagulls don’t get them.” only to have his doughnut pinched by one!.”Like that!”, he said.
The weather’s a bit murky here this morning; I can barely see the Great Orme, and I’ve had to put a jumper on! Hwyl fawr am y tro!
