Techniques Tag

Paula the Pixie set these fabby questions on her blog so I thought I'd respond.

1) What technique would you consider to be your "trade mark" (what do you do most?)
I ink the edges and then do pretend stitching round the side.
2) Which technique(s) do you wish you could do/do better?
I can burn fimo! Wish I could use my sewing machine on cards better
3) What are your 4 favourite embellishments?
Buttons, Brads, Ribbon, Blooms - this is what Paula wrote but I totally agree!
4) What are your 3 favourite gadgets?
Corner rounder, Cropodile, Zipemate
5a) What do you like to do but haven't done in a while?
Peel offs on acetate. I know I've used the P word but they can sometimes look nice ya know!
5b) And what have you done recently & forgot how much you enjoyed?
Stamping and embossing and colouring in

In the last two days I have conquered some of my fears that built up with depression - I have practiced the harp and used my sewing machine. OK so it doesn't sound ground breaking, but it reallyreally is. Just wish I didn't have to go through the blister on fingers routine with the harp....


Paula J Atkinson said... can play a harp & you worry about burning a bit of fimo!!!
Really great answers & hey, I'd forgot all about peel offs on acetate. I love doing Xmas ones with glass paint..
Thank you for playing along, it is good to have an insight into people you craft along side & thank you for the link..I used to be quite shy but am finding myself via my blog!!!

I'm so glad to hear you're sewing again. Its funny (not in a ha ha way) how easily we can link certain things with feeling bad and its so liberating to get past that. Good for you!

Lythan, what a great entry. Its amazing what feeling depressed can rob from us. I am so pleased to hear you are claiming it back. And playing the harp - well, thats an achievement in itself.

I love reading your blog Lythan. You always manage to voice what so many of us are feeling about life, crafting and everything...

Good luck with fighting your personal demons - we all have them but sometimes forget that and think it's only us!
