I couldn't let this Wednesday go by without linking to The Stamping Ground for What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. I have met so many lovely folk courtesy of Julia and would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
My desk I am sure won't impress - a random amount of things, either dumped to sort or leftover and intended to add to my next journal page.
There is even a plastic bag containing some old jewellery from my DIL given to me last week - still to be investigated properly!
Now, I hope you don't mind me adding a film review?
Last week on our way up to the caravan we called in to see the new Star Wars film. Hubby had booked expecting crowds….there were 5 of us in the cinema!!!
This poster was outside in the corridor.
They were giving away sets of postcards so I cut a couple up to make this.
I had this yucky black and green background in my journal for ages - used pens to add lasers and 'flashes' and added some TH words - it was only when I had finished that I opened out the pages to find that the two pages looked so funny together and with the same words!!
The film did not disappoint - to me it was just as exciting as the very first one(in 1977)- which I went to see with my Special needs class - we had won a competition for a free viewing - guess how? - an art competition in which the children made robot shapes using tools, cogs, springs etc.(begged from the local garage)onto large pieces of paper then sprayed them with paint - sound familiar? It was only as the words scrolled up on the screen that I remembered this - it seems I have been masking and spraying for quite some time!
It was great to see the old characters appear - and the story line was good - no spoilers! I will certainly enjoy watching again when the DVD comes out, but the big screen is definitely the best place to see this!
I will be out with grandchildren today so will make most of my visits when we get home!
Hope you all enjoy your Christmas!
Thanks for looking, Chris
