Hey girls =) Well I am sitting here at my craft desk and my house is eerily silent as my boys have all gone camping for the weekend. It is fun having 'me time' for the first 12 hours but once the housework is all done, I've watched a movie or three and scrapped a few layouts, it starts to become extraordinarily boring having just my cat to chat to! So thought this would be a good opportunity to catch up on some blogging =)
Did you girls know that Scrap365 mag run a sketch challenge on their blog, http://sketchbook365.blogspot.co.uk/? I entered once, next thing you know, guest designer spot, front cover and now a full time DT position. So if getting noticed plus a great challenge with prizes is your thing, you may want to check it out. I played along this month and this is my layout...
One thing I have always loved about checking out other people's blog ( apart from scrapbooking inspiration) is coming across links to really interesting sites and discovering new things. When I trawl the net, my usual searches involve art, music and photography. So I thought I might share some of this weeks finds...if your currently bored like me and want to check them out lol.
So I found this amazing UK based photographer, Danielle Tunstall. Her work is just mind blowing!! I have a penchant for horror so this is right up my alley. Not your gory type 'nightmare on Elm St' type thing, but just scary stuff that makes your skin crawl ( think The Ring). As a suburban housewife I guess this would be my only rare source of an adrenalin rush! lol. This is her video on youtube, it goes pretty quick but if you want to see more, check out her flickr. Seriously friggin talented chic!
Music wise, I found this song by Ane Brun and haven't been able to stop playing it. Not only is it an awesome song but I just love the cryptic grungy film clip..May not be everyone's thing. My taste tends to be quirky female singer/songwriters so this does it for me =)
Right then, better be off, hope I haven't bored you =)
