A quick upload of one of my favourite things in my 'hallway' lol - laughing because it isnt really a hallway, more like an area of space in my front room that almost qualifies. We got this on a holiday in the Dominican Republic,, where we were ripped off by a few of the friendly locals, until we discovered what they were up to and did a little 'ripping off' of our own lol, nuff said.
This is the holiday on which I nearly drowned (twice - really wish I was a stronger swimmer), but saw some of the most beautiful places (also a few of the most dirty, dingy places, with people living in pretty poor conditions). We went to a place where the locals carved these sculptures and stood there after swanning around the Dominican, sunbathing and generally being lazy and soaking up the place, I was overcome by feelings of guilt! These people worked so hard and carved such beautiful pieces for very little money and I couldnt help feeling like I really shouldnt have been just stood there, watching them working.
I have been blog stalking a number of people, and have been overwhelmed by the talent of people like Louise (my life most ordinary), and Cloclo (the art of teabag staining), Sharon's Fairy Dust Bag Blog and Looby's (Scrap Happy Lou) blog to name only a few!! They have really inspired me to do something different with my LOs/cards, which are getting a bit samey, and not very adventurous. So I am hoping to create something a bit more inspired! Fingers crossed anyway, I have a few ideas but will just have to see where they end up!
Sp I shall say au revoir, and hopefully I might have some good crafty bits to share with you soon! Have a nice day!
