WOYWW - 18 July

Happy Wednesday, fellow WOYWWers!  (If you have no idea what this is all about, check out Julia Dunnit's blog here) Creepin' Ivy, doesn't time fly?  July already.  Not that it feels like it.  They keep promising us a summer but no sign yet...

On the ol' workdesk this week, apart from the usual junk, is a little locket (holding pictures of Lady E and Major T) cut from cardboard and covered with the mock croc.  This is about the last of it for the time being - but I did find some Anna Griffin animal print stamps in the stash which I hadn't thought about for a while so I might play a bit more with them!  The hinge is a scrap of grungepaper and there are a couple of magnets concealed in the frame to act as a closure.  You can't see the Vagabond, which is off to one side, which is what did the cutting on this occasion.  Nesties will cut quite heavy card if you run them through the Vagabond a few times (and they'll do grungepaper, too!)

The yellow duster is there because I was treating my Nesties with beeswax polish to act as a release agent (not because I was doing housework.  That would jeopardise my amateur status).  Seems to help a bit.  Anyway, thanks for visiting, and  I'm looking forward to visiting you in return!

See you next week!

LOL, yep, I can relate, I'll sew on my cards and projects but if I have a button to sew on a pair of shorts, they will never get done, so I can relate to applying your beeswax to the nestibilities, but not for housework! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :) #50

We'd worry about you if we found out you were dusting and neglecting your crafting. But polishing your nesties... why we will high five you for that! I do sometimes dust. My punches.

Love your remark about the cleaning! (Wot's cleaning, by the way...?) Good idea using beeswax as a release agent. I don't use dies, but I know a lot of people who struggle, particularly with the intricate doiley-type dies.

Happy belated WOYWW,
