It has cooled off a little bit here, at least outside, but here in my apartment it is still extremely hot. It will take time for it to cool down again, providing, of course, that it doesn't heat up outside once more....
My arty kitchen and my laptop are the two absolute hotspots, the coolest place is the bathroom, but there's not enough room to be crafting there! Yesterday my glue stick melted, something I have not experienced before.
For the alpha challenge, letter 't', at the Craft Barn, I chose the word T-shirt. Not very original, but the heat seems to affect my brain, too. I printed a T-shirt onto white paper and added the definition from Webster's online thesaurus. I glued it to a dictionary page using some of my melted glue, and cut round it again, before fixing it to a sheet of DCWV paper. I fussy cut the tulips, and glued on an arrow to point to the definition. I added a tag with 'T' as a 'price' tag.
At Moo-Mania the challenge is to make a Moo with the sun - bad timing, girls! It is too hot to think about the sun! I made 2 not very inspired moos using scraps of hand-painted paper and mounted them onto some ink-smooched cards.
That's all for today! Take care of yourselves, keep cool, and thanks a lot for coming by!
