Hello everyone
I cant believe its Wednesday again where has that last week gone to?
My desk this morning shows I am on a mission with my distress inks.  I have been meaning to make myself a colour chart for them for ages, and as you can see I am well on my way with it.   I now have 47 of the 48 colours so it seemed like a good time to sort the colour chart out.  I am hoping to get the last one seedless preserve this week, to complete the set . This has taken me a number of years to collect, but I do love them.    Big Al is in the process of making me some wooden applicators to use with them as I only have a couple of these and I do prefer using the applicators rather than the cut and dry foam cut down in to squares.   If you are wondering how I got on with the flowers from drinks cans or the butterflies I had on my desk last week, see my previous post. 
Right I am off now to have a look as to what everyone else is up to if you are not joining in the fun yet pop along to and our lovely host Julia to find out how.
Hugs Mo x

  16. Hi Mo I have nominated you for the Liebster Award today, look at my blog today for more details. Gill x

  17. Hi Mo, just followed a link from Anne's blog (Redanne) and joined your blog as a follower. I think it's great that you're getting some more wooden tools made. Had that done myself last year, and you can never have too many. (and to buy them - too expensive!) Love that you've made yourself a color chart. So organized. Your craft space looks so tidy. Wish mine were! Hope to see you again - got you bookmarked. And when you have time, I invite you to visit me too. Always fun to make a new friend. TFS
