Four very quick Christmas cards today, I am having a bit of a panic as I haven't made anything like the number of cards I need. I think I need to have a mass-producing session. All four of these cards were made very quickly and easily using elements from the gorgeous tomato and chilli range of papers from Craftwork Cards. The papers are foiled so look very elegant, and putting quick cards together was a breeze
We had decorators in yesterday, so after putting the house back together, I slumped in front of the TV. Another TV advertisment caught my eye - I think they are called infomercials, and as a rule of thumb, they mainly seem to advertise the sort of thing that you wonder how you have lived for so long without...............well, that's the aim of them, like the Clean Feet I saw last night. However have I managed to wash my feet for all these years without one of these - a sort of plastic sandal with bristles that you put in your shower, then shove your feet backwards and forwards over the bristles to clean them. I can see the benefits for disabled folk with mobility problems, but they have all these twentysomethings gushing on and on about how their feet have never looked so young. Personally, having my feet looking young is the least of my worries, I am too busy concentrating on the bits that people see every day.
Then there was the Itty Bitty Brella - this is really what they called this, makes you wonder about the quality of their copywriters doesn't it? Apparently, so they told me, we have all been caught in a rainstorm, and battled to get out of the car and get our brollies up. Well yes, I open the car door, and still sitting in the car, niftily lean out and open my brolly, and for a nano second I am exposed to the elements when I climb out. Don't worry, the days of having a drop or two of rain on you are over. The Itty Bitty Brella is small enough to open INSIDE the car. Isn't that revolutionary? Of course it's Itty Bitty size means that you have to have an Itty Bitty sort of head to fit under it, and it certainly isn't wide enough to shelter the average set of shoulders, but if you know any Itty Bitty people, this would make a perfect itty present
