Handmade Monday 124

Hi and welcome to Handmade Monday.  Click the link to find out more, including how to join in if you're new.  You don't need an invite!

This week I've been playing with pebbles and paint for Craftseller magazine for an upcoming rock art feature.  That was quite a lot of fun!  I can't show you the whole project until it's published, but here's a little taster...


In other news, I'm getting together with Totally Tutorials to offer free digi stamps to bloggers wanting to produce a tutorial.  I've had some really lovely emails already, with some ideas that would never have occurred to me!  I'll be looking for a mix of tutorials and ideas and it's lovely that some Handmade Mondayers are joining in.

The hardest bit will be deciding who gets the freebies, but I think this is something I'll do again anyway so there will be other chances.  The five who get picked this time will have their tutorial promoted on here as well as the TotallyTutorials blog so it should increase exposure for them.  I do like a project that works well for all parties, don't you?

Meanwhile, here's another idea that's good for all of us - it's time for Handmade Monday and you know what that means...

Your painted pebbles seem to be quite a hit. It must be the lovely bright colours that are matching the glorious weather we are having.

I love the Rock Art! I have some lovely big stones in my garden that would look lovely with some work done to them - very inspiring. Hope you have a good week.

The vintage caravan is very appealing - just at the moment I'd really like a real one of those to go and stay in for a while!

Gosh, another busy week! Teaming up is a great idea, I'll be sure to pop on by just as soon as I get a spare 5 mins - this temping / working thing is tricky! ;)
