Secret Santa

Hi all.

I'm just popping in with news of this years Secret Santa. I am not going to be able to run it this year. I'm really sorry :( I just don't have the time or the spare pennies. School is taking up every spare moment. If someone else wants to host this year I truly wont be offended. Hopefully next year, things wont be so manic.

However - if you are in the UK and still want a Secret Santa to take part in, please consider the UKScrappers stocking swap. Sign up is open now.  I am still taking part in that one. I can't afford two this year and seeing as that one started first, that's the one I'm going to participate in.

Don't hate me! (I feel like the Grinch!) 

I'll be back soon with a bloggy post about what we've been doing at school :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Summer of Colour Week 3 & Summer Sketchbook Update

Afternoon all :)

Week 3 of Summer of Colour was Purple + Purple + Yellow. I did my week 3 a while ago - in fact, before week 2. So if you follow me on Instagram and think you've seen this already... you have.

I used Derwent Inktense pencils in shades Violet + Fuchsia + Lemon Yellow. Don't ask me where this little fella came from but he reminds me of Sheldon off of Big Bang Theory... around the eyes. Am I going mad? Probably.  Maybe I was watching it or had it on in the background.

I thought I'd show you one more picture of him. Please excuse   his crumpled state - we had the doors open and the breeze must have blown this little index card in the sink. It was full of water - we found the card floating there eventually. I'm really impressed at how bright the colours still are. A testament to Inktense claims that when they set - they really set.

As for what I've been up to. Lots! But I can't show you just yet. I have been working away on the Summer Project set by the school. I start on Monday. Am I anywhere near finished? Am I heck. Mild panic verging on hysteria. Craig reckons this is to prepare us for what's to come. Ease us in gently. Ha! I don't know if what I'm doing is right, if it's enough, if it's good enough, if it'll be done in time... breathe. Breathe. But - I am enjoying it. Strangely. I was hoping this book would be more full by now. (I have to train myself not to sidetracked by the research. I go off on a tangent.) I'll show you again next week, when I start and it should be finished. I'll show you some bits from inside too if you'd like.
So - that's me for now. What have you been up to?
Thanks for stopping by today :)
