Busy...

Who isn't? You ask. I am an almost full time mother and almost part time worker. Hmmmm.... nice life, I'm thinking...
But I'm a fairly lazy person especially when it comes to work. I'd prefer to spend my time lazing around and meeting up with friends, sipping a latte on a breezy Wednesday afternoon.... Alas, on a breezy Wednesday afternoon, I'm rushing through work, kids, laundry, cooking, ferrying kids here and there for holiday programmes (I must have been mad to sign Brandon up for so many holiday programmes!)
I often wish I were one of those ladies who are always so well turned out, with narry a hair out of place and lipstick bright and glossy. They will always have 2 or 3 kids in tow who are just as well turned out as the mother. And if you look carefully, there'll usually be a maid trailing behind looking harassed and wild haired! How nice to have a maid taking care of your kids, housework, cooking. And all I'd have to do is to take care of my hair and nails and clothes before I come out looking like a million bucks!!
POP!! There goes my dream bubble. I am the perfect example of someone who is not contented with her lot. Sigh.... I've read all the requisite books on how one must be contented with life and that money is not everything and cannot solve everything... Blah blah blah....
Jeez.... I can always dream can't I? Hee hee! Maybe tomorrow I'd strike lottery and then I'd have that breezy Wednesday afternoon in the Bahamas! Hahahaha!
Have a wonderful breezy week everyone!

You're not alone shirley, but i'm just 1 kid lesser at this moment. Busy is a common word for me too, and hardly can find the time to pamper myself other than scrap shopping.

Have a great week ahead gal!!

Hi Shirley! For the closures, just recycle the original chipboard circles (or make some of your own), include plastic clock or make bigger circles from hambly transparencies etc. Put a 3D foam dot behind each circle for height. Then decide where you want them to be, mark the position, then pierce through the cover. Poke brad through your circles, then through the cover and voila! If the back of the brad is showing, you can cover it with a little more phonebook paper and white paint or a collage picture. Hope that helps.

And yes, gel medium transfer method same as for gesso.

Have fun!
