Crafting in the Dark!

The title tells it all! Well not really, but it might give you an insight into my life...lol Last week while having one of the best evenings with a wonderful group of girls, we got onto crafting and when we do it! For me, I cannot craft at night when it is dark, and there is no natural light. However I came out with the classic one liner.. and said "I cannot craft in the dark!" Brenda suggested that I put the light on!!!!  Hoots of laughter, and tears came to us all... It was the bestest evening! LOL
 I thought how it would be fun to do a night time crafting session... so girls, I will be choosing a night very soon, and if you would like to join us for an all nighter... email me :)
I have told you I don't craft at night with no natural light, but you will know now why I love the summers... natural light from 5am ish to 9am ish! and this is some of what I have been doing while sitting in front of the news very early in the morning! new Crafters Workshop stencils, a book from a dvd I was given.. guess the title?!!! and Dylusions sprays decanted into a water brush ( fabulous idea, Dyan, thank you!) These are my pieces of cathartic art... making me want to do more.. shame work gets in the way... These are by no means finished pieces of art, just my personal pages.. giving me a way forward.
I hope you like them...
 

 
 
 


Have a creative day and a little night time crafting!

Hi Jennie,
I often start crafting late at night, when I should be going to bed! I seem to come to life then and feel creative when I have had so long to do it, and even in the daylight I tend to keep my craft room blinds drawn unless it is very hot and I open the window! Maybe I am a mole! The blinds are kept closed so that nobody looks in to see the mess or my computer, and yet we are in a corner of a cul-de-sac so it is only the neighbours, postie and delivery peeps that are likely to look.

I do love them... wonderful colours and freedom. So sorry I missed you in Coventry last week - sounds as though you all had a ball on the Wednesday, especially in the evening!! I'm all for night-time crafting - light or no light, actually...
