Hello!!! Sorry I have not been a round... all this booootiful weather and half term... busy busy!
Anyway... little story for you all of todays adventures.....
A little while ago, I went to a parchment workshop, and the tutor (the wonderful Tina) had this fabulous little wooden block, with big holes in it for all her ink to stand up... as I am as clumsy as.. well a very clumsy person.. I decided I needed one, so I set to work on good old google to try and find one... with no luck!
I explained what I wanted to hubby.. who dug out his drill bits, and his largest drill is a fraction smaller than a Tinta bottle... Typical! So back to google!!!
This morning I got an email for a company I get email updates from... and..... YES!!!!! They have the wooden blocks .. New In Stock... two sizes... one for Tinta and one for Pintura... How excited was I!!!! Off I rush... I had a look... bunged them in my basket.. and then thought.. hang on... I can make them
So I "tried"
At this precise moment I am sooooooo sticky it is untrue.... I have fingers stuck together, fingers stuck to thumbs... hair stuck to ear... elbows stuck to the desk, various sizes of off cut paper stuck EVERYWHERE, a very sticky knife......and I think I need to go and sandblast myself clean
Result...... using one empty cat food box and two loo roll tubes.. some paper and lots and lots of glue!!!!
For anybody interested... the link to the Proper holders is here ..... but don't buy them all cos I think I am off to get myself one!!!! All that sticky aggro today... to save less than six quid!!!ROFL
