Why? Because she knows how to put a smile on your face.
I've had a bad leg for almost 14 weeks now and can't leave the flat unless someone can drive me places. In all this time, I've seen very few people. Yesterday afternoon, my sister told my Mum of a conversation she'd had with her daughter.
It went something like this:
"Mum, when can I go to Auntie Sarah's?"
"I don't know because you know she's not well at the moment."
"Mum, I know she's got a bad leg,
but doesn't she want any company?"
Elise, my darling niece, you've hit the nail on the head. I'd absolutely love a visitor and can't wait to have you over here.
Ages ago, I was looking for some wire/plastic mesh to use on a LO. All the craft ones were beyond my price range. Then, I spied some my ex had to ready do some bodywork on his car. I had the bits that were left over and I've never looked back.
At less than £2 per sheet, it's ideal for crafting with as it's easy to cut with scissors. You can use it as it is or ink (with whatever colour you fancy) and heat emboss which gives it a plastic feel. I love how it looks and how easy it is to work with. Why not pop to your car repair shop and get some. Better still, if you know someone who repairs cars, maybe you can get the offcuts.
The only thing to remember, is to lightly sand
the edges as they can be sharp if you don't.
Here are some examples of how I've used it
and I've used clear embossing powder for
most of these on top of coloured ink
