WOYWW 17/11/2011 – Lil’ Grumpies

Another week, another WOYWW.  Very excited that I may get to actually MEET Julia at a crop very soon.  Lucky, lucky ME! Do drop by and see what creativity is blooming on desks (and floors, and kitchen tables, and corners of bedrooms….) across the world

But me?  I am busy trying to sort out some of my site stuff, as well as get the house back to normal after our long visit from the in-laws, and get some Christmas tasks done, and just load and loads of “have to do” stuff when I want to do “WANT to do stuff”

I am loving my Li’l Grumpies from Smeared Ink.  I have been playing with my Copics and experimenting with colouring in and cutting out – those little wispy hairs are tricky.  So much fun.

I am excited that Make the Day Special has more Smeared Ink on the way. I love love love  Nevermore.  I am very keen on at least two of the new releases, one with a fab ink blot and one with great wood grain and tree bark backgrounds.  I love the Grumpies and for a change the word stamps that come with them are handy too – I had picked out “I’m watching you” for the pink girl, “here’s the deal” or “What are you looking at?” for the purple one, and def. “look into my eyes” for the brown one.  I saw a fab card on Deze is ook leuk! and am planing to incorporate these little guys into something like that somehow.  While cleaning I found a card I made that was very similar (probably the “origami” version she refers to in the video, I’m guessing) before we moved over here in 2001 but never sent.  I think I am going to give the one from the video a go and see how they differ.  anyway, I think the Grumpies would be a fun surprise inside when you open the “box!”

Hope you all are having a crafty day – and Happy WOYWW!
