Sometimes I Swear...

PC080079

I know it's Not Nice...

and I know it's Not Ladylike...

and it's certainly Not A Good Example to my children...

But HOLY MONKEYS, sometimes you Just Have To...

And I DID swear while making this star!!!

PC080035

It all started out in a very civilised manner... with four strips of recycled paper

PC080066

But by the time I reached Step 10 - I was cursing!

I mean, just LOOK AT STEP 10... can you make any sense of that at all???

I got about this far when my paper started to tear apart...

PC080060

So it was time for fresh paper.

And just what am I using for paper?

Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines...

As you do.

I found this old book when cleaning out the other day...

I know it's mine, because I've put my name on the front cover.

TWICE!

PC080018

Yes.

You read correctly.

School Music Camp 1982.

(Man I keep some crap)

It even had a little Journal in it...

PC080020

Look at that... we watched Greece! Could that possibly have been Grease, do you think???

Awww - the memories!

Anyway, back to that wretched star...

I got there in the end and although I love the way it looks, I don't know if I can muster up the patience for a second one!

PC080075

Looking for something else to read?

I'm linking up with Rhonda at Down To Earth... who has some sad news today about her chooks}

The star looks so pretty now though! And you can't tell at all that it's been cursed!
