A little Penny Black card for today. The scallop base card is by Craftwork Cards - I chopped the bottom off another card to make a matching scallop for the top. I love the lazy total relaxation of the cat on this stamp
Sittin' here is what I have been doing tonight. I have just finished some magazine commissions got them posted off today. Ta da... so I gave myself a night off and have been watching a programme called Toddlers and Tiaras with my jaw hitting the floor.
Now for my American friends, you must realise that beauty pageants are unheard of in the UK - we have a grown up Miss England, Miss Wales etc contest, but as far as I know we don't have toddlers in tiaras, or if there are, they don't make it onto our TV. So another American experience for me.
For my UK friends, the programme is all about teensy tots, some of them only a few months old, wearing make up, with elaborate hair pieces (think Joan Collins in Dynasty) and spray tans. Wow. The hilarious bit was that as these kids toddled onto the stage, barely able to walk, the commentator announced that their ambition was to 'do good in life and become a doctor'. Hmm, maybe the parents would do better to sit and read books to them then. They had a celebrity bit, where the kids had to dress up as a celebrity like Dolly Parton (complete with false boobs. Mini Dolly was three!!). My jaw dropping moment was when a proud Mama dressed up her three year old as Julia Roberts - playing the hooker in Pretty Woman. Two words spring to mind, social and worker.
Mind blowing - I can't wait for next week's episode!
As far as TV jaw dropping experiences go, the only thing we have to rival it is Today in Parliament!
See you tomorrow
