Good evening everyone. Hope you are all ok.
I know its unusual for me to post in the evening but I thought, why wait until tomorrow.
Its not often at the moment that I have had time to play as the website has been keeping me busy along wit the hospital appointments and tests..........more on that later.
Now, I got all unnecessary when I managed to get hold of some craft snow, like John has been using lately.
Mine is not from the same wholesaler but it is the same type (so may be the same manufacturer) and I managed to get it cheaper, which means that I can pass on those savings to my lovely customers.
Also, I had one of those "I wonder if............" moments and decided to try stamping onto it. You have to rub the "snow" onto your sticky sheet well, like you would with glitter to get it flat. I would recommend using the waxy carrier sheet that you peel off the double sided sticky sheet to rub over it as its a nice smooth item to use, rather than your fingers.
Well, slap my thigh and call me Betsy, it bloomin well worked!!!

I love the texture of this stuff (you can really see it in the photos) and the fact that you can still stamp on it.
I can't honestly comment on whether you can stamp on the exact one John has been using as I have not personally used that particular one.
What I would recommend is that you spread a sheet of kitchen roll over it when you have stamped and press over the stamped area to take off the excess ink. It is polyester so the ink will take a little while longer to dry otherwise.
I have a feeling, I will be using this product a lot on my Christmas cards this year.
Now, onto my current round of hospital pokings and proddings. My cardiologist referred me to a respiratory consultant to run tests on my breathing, pulse and oxygen levels during sleep. He doesn't think I have sleep apnoea but wanted to check these other areas.
This is what I had to wear overnight...............
There was a strap across my chest, a strap across my stomach, a wrist monitor, finger pulse monitor, and some tubing that went around my ears and 2 things up my nose, all connected to another monitor clipped to my nightwear (Good job I wear something to bed or goodness knows what I would have had to attach the clips to..............).
Well, Mr D looked at me with a tight lipped smile and a tear in his eye..........I could tell, at that moment, he was remembering the reason why he married me and was stifling his emotions................
Will be fascinated to find out the results as I didn't get a wink of sleep in all that paraphernalia. Velcro sticks to some very unnatural places, I can tell you!!!
All this necessitates 4 hospital appointments. One to see the consultant, one to collect the equipment and be trained on how to use it, one to return the equipment and another to get the results...........and they wonder why waiting lists are so bloomin long!!!
Well that's me for today.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I'm off to play in the snow again.
