WOYWW #466

Hi folks, I'm back, and hoping you've all had a great Bank Holiday weekend, with some fabulous weather. Didn't have very good weather for our week away, in fact it wasn't till Sunday that we saw any sunshine. Speaking of which, I have to show you this. Facebook friends will have already seen it, but I thought you all deserved a laugh! There was a really interesting Science Museum close to where we were staying, so we went for a visit.

They had one of those Static Electricity gadgets there, and needless to say, Hubby was determined he was having a go.

 Even the attendant asked to take pictures, as they'd never had anyone with hair as long as Dougs have a go on it.

On the desk, I've die cut and layered up all those medallions, now they just need to go on cards.

But first-

yes, I've finally started my ATC's. So anyone else who would like to swap, leave me a message, and send me your snail mail, and I'll do the same.

Right then, pop your link over at Julias at The Stamping Ground, and let us all come look at your desk!

And finally.....................
That is so true, 😁.

What great pictures, i'm not surprised he was asked by the attendant for photographs he sells what that electric contraption does very well. Hope you had a good time away even with the poor weather?
Those mandalas are stunning, they will make amazing cards.
Happy WOYWW, sunshine and creativity Tracey #5

WOW, Shaz. Doug's photos are really good publicity for the Science Museum and the Static Electricity Machine. And those medallions are out of this world. They are SO beautiful.

Happy WOYWW from #3 and now I want google earth.

Gah, the Canaries are so weather unpredictable recently. We were in Malaga for our first week and the first couple of days were cloudy - the locals were saying it had been a wet and cloudy winter and were very gloomy about the outlook. Fortunately, every day after it got brighter and warmer. Cheered us all, locals and tourists alike! Great pics of DOug, never seen his hair let loose before, so even more amazing really! The mandalas look great Shaz, you have tons more patience than me.

craftyani said...

Love the new hairstyle. Have a guy who's hair looks like that all the time. Haha Ani#1

Angela Radford said...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Those photos of Doug are my all time favs of him - what fun you had and how funny that the attendant joined in! Love those mandalas, so beautiful and I'm seriously impressed with your patience and tenacity. Not words you associate with me :-D
I'm up for swapping ATCs with you!

What great photos - they really made me chuckle. The medallion motifs are beautiful - what a fantastic die that is, they will make stunning cards.

Neet said...

First of all you were on my surprise list for ATC's anyhow. Couldn't not send you one could I? So yes, you are a swapper!
Loved the photos of Doug's hair on FB and had double enjoyment seeing them on here today. Reminds me of Wizard with all that hair flying about.
Love your Mandalas - they look amazing.
Sorry about the weather on your holiday - would never have thought it with the Canaries - reminds me of Nerja last year when we had two or three days of storms - we stayed in part of the time - just went out to eat at night.
Hugs, Neet xx 6

Hi Shaz, I totally smiled from ear to ear over Doug's mug shots. :)

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Shaz, haha I love the photos of Doug! Shame about the weather, but hope you still had a great holiday. If you have a spare ATC I would love to swap, although I have yet to make mine, but Julia asked to swap, so ... I now have to produce some. Hope you have a great time at your friends wedding, and I look forward to meeting you later in the year. Have a great week, Heather x #11

Marit said...

Your hubby looks marvelous against the static electric wall!!! I love his long grey/white hair. The medallions look like a lot of work, wowzah! I don't know what places you will visit when you come to the Netherlands, but there are a lot of cities with old houses/canals/churches/bridges like Middelburg (think Amsterdam, Utrecht, 's Hertogenbosch) Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday, enjoy your week! Hug from Holland, Marit #4

Lindart said...

Hi Shaz! Had to laugh at the Google Earth - I have done that (as we probably all have!). Your hubby looks magical - like Merlin! Looking forward to seeing the finished medallion cards! I think you will find that unmounting you Stampscapes stamps will be so easy - they pull right off! Thanks for your visit, have a great week! Lindart #26

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Those medallions look so beautiful, Shaz - absolutely stunning! The pictures of Doug are hilarious - he's such a good sport! And yes, I've looked up our house on Google Earth - it's actually very useful when I want to give people directions on how to get here - I just send them a link or a screen capture - makes life easier. Thanks so much for your visit on Wednesday - I look forward to our swap! Enjoy your weekend! zsuzsa #19
