Tuesday and it's not raining....yet!

Hi everybody, it's Tuesday again, time is flying by. But time is definitely relative. Yesterday, at the dentist's, I had the feeling that I was sitting on that chair for ever, although it was *only* an hour. An hour with lots of drilling in my root canal, and the feeling that my whole head was vibrating. But even the longest hour ends sooner or later! The next session is on Thursday, where he has promised that we will be discussing a *comprehensive treatment plan* - it sounds expensive!
n the afternoon I made some ACEOs. They have been made from small pieces of marbled paper, left over from other ventures after my last marbling session. I still have more, but they will be used for die-cuts and inchies.

In addition I made one tag, to replace one of those which got *washed away* on Sunday! I think the frog prince seems to be a dedicated follower of fashion! I am entering this into Rebecca's *Blog Challenge Garden*, where you have to make a tag in 10 minutes - this one took less!

While I was blog-hopping, I visited *Crystal Clear*. Crystal is not only a talented artist, but also writes great posts, which are often very funny. And now she has started a new feature, where she introduces 5 others from time to time, and much to my surprise, I found myself on her list yesterday. It really is great to have such a good contact to so many blogging friends all over the world; this is something we can all be thankful for. For me, it is very important, as I have no contact to any of my family, and spend a lot of time on my own. I think my life would be sad without all of you, and the possibility to be creative.

And while watching TV in the evening I reduced a cardboard box to 22 tags, which I peeled and distressed ready for use, a very relaxing occupation!

Have a great day, Take care, and thanks a lot for dropping in!

  14. Good Morning...love your new ACEO's! Gorgeous!

  15. Hi Valerie. Oh those darn dentists are just too expensive as is everything these day and it looks as things will continue to rise. Love your tag and and your aceos are fantastic!! The more I look at them, the more I am reminded of roots....get it?? roots??? tee hee. In this case they are beautiful roots coming out of the earth, not a drill going into the roots. :))) Take care. Have a great rest of the week.

  16. Valerie, your tiny ACEOs are beautiful. Love the colors from the marbling.

    With the root canal finished, you should start to feel a lot better in a few days. The pain doesn't go away as quickly as we would like but in time all will be well.

    GREAT TAG,too.


  17. Lovely work Val, love all those little pics, and your tag is really funny! Naughty frog! Hugs, Barb
