Three Days to go...

and the curtains open at 7pm! I am getting so excited at the prospect of showing you all the stage, that I am having problems containing myself. Patience, they say is a virtue! I am so tempted to just give you a peek, a little sneak behind the curtain.. but am refraining myself. So that I can get excited, I gave away some blog candy , and the winner according to random integrator is ticket holder number no 9
Congratulations, and please email me your address, so that you can have your extra props before opening night.
See you all on Saturday, and don't forget to bring your mojos, and a soft squishy cushion to sit on, the chairs are a tad uncomfortable!

Dress Rehearsal

The stage has been set, the lighting is being put up, and the costumes are being prepared. The actors have been rehearsing , and are almost word perfect, and well, the props are being pulled out of the cupboard, put in place, moved about a bit, and being listed in the programmes! Why do you ask? Well, in the theatre of crafting here in blogland, they are the most important! To whet your appetite until saturday, here are a couple of possible props for you to win:
All you have to do is sit back, and relax if you are already a follower, or if you want you can comment, or even leave a trail to the theatre on your blog. To do this just add the logo on the sidebar and link it to this site.
Opening night is not far off.....

are now in full swing, and I hope that you are thinking outside of the box, gathering your papers, inks, stamps, embellishments, ribbons, fibres, and of course your creative spirit.
I guess I should maybe tell you a little bit about why I started this blog challenge, and the reasons behind it. I am trained as a jeweller and all my life I have thought about artwork in 3D, wierd but true. When I started stamping, I was shown embossing, and thought , ooh love it, it is three dimensional! In those days, long long ago, stamping was only ever done on cards, or used to make wrapping paper, and when people asked what I did, that was how you explained it to them. Now I can show them pictures, 3D objects, in fact, almost anything! The only magazine that thought outside the box was Somerset Studio, and I used to drool over the pages, with my mouth watering! I still do! Cards didn't even come into the pages, well not often. Ordinary people are out there are creating gorgeous touchable feelable pieces, and this is what this blog challenge is all about. I want to help you create out of the norm, out of this world artwork, that is you, but using objects that are within your reach, that you don't have to rush to the shops to get. There will be no criteria, no direction, just an object, but I think you will have guessed that already, and all you have to do is get out your hidden talents and create!  Have I babbled on too long?
If yuu are not a follower just add yourself, and be in line for blog candy next week.

Finally I am back...

For those of you who are eagerly awaiting the start of this blog challenge, don't despair, I am now back with 2 working arms! Yeah! . I was in the middle of making my artwork for the challenge when I broke my right arm, and consequently couldn't finish the piece I had started!

My mojo has taken a little step back, but I am sorting that out (come back all is forgiven!) and hope to start this challenge blog properly within the next couple of weeks.

To know when it starts add yourself as a follower, and keep checking back.

I shall be giving away blog candy to my followers in the first week of the challenge too!
