I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

Not more hopping, surely?

Hello all.  Yes I'm afraid so...  For the last time in May (I think and devoutly hope!) I'm offering up a double-hopping opportunity today at Words and Pictures.  It's just how the timing of things has worked out this month.  I hope you noticed I've been leaving you in peace a bit in between though!

So today it's two sneak peeks again...  I promise both of them are slightly shorter than my usual epic posts too!






Firstly, I'm over at The Artistic Stamper Creative Team Blog with a cheeky Steampunky trio who will try to lead you into temptation.  Do hop over and take a look, but don't let them inveigle you into anything untoward.
















And secondly, I've a project over at the Calico Crafts blog - serene and gentle, in case you need to recover from the hard sell of the trio above.  I'd love it if you have time to hop over there too for a quick look.








I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  We have guests, but I expect I'll be able to sneak online for some visiting at some point!  Happy crafting all!

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.

(Hmm... they both remind me of crafty spending somehow...)

I like your quotes and I agree they might apply to crafty spending :-)). Both makes are splendid, as usual. I like your "rascals", and the canvas with the grid is very calm and soothing. Hope your weekend is enjoyable.
