Family roots

Ugh, been kept busy, I have joined a group on facebook, that has people with roots in Karelia, and I'm finding distant relatives. It is a fun and interesting journey, as I get to learn details from the past I didn't know before. Exciting!
The best of all, I'm getting to see old photos I have never seen before from my great grandmother and greatgrandfathers village, life, and culture.
I've been also busy with making more crafty stuff. I have an urge to do things, so I keep on doing stuff before the crafting mojo disappears...:)
Will be back soon with piccies etc..

To cheer up myself and try to forget the eejit that is my spouse, been looking at pics from the past few years. Here's a dump of a few of them....

When DIY goes bad...

First to start off with a rant. A lovely friend of mine gave me a phone with a cracked screen, and I was very chuffed, as with a repair, I would get a very good upgrade over my existing phone. As usual, husband steps out heroicly and promises to do his repair magic on it. At this point I say, would it not be a better idea to take it to a shop, where people have done this before...His answer was " I am not paying that, I can do it"
Instead of forking out the 40 odd pounds to get this quite a valuable phone back to the old glory, we then got all the needed pieces for the repair.
Well guess what.
He broke the whole thing within the first 5 minutes into his "fixing".
What is wrong with men. Why insist on doing something you have no idea how to succesfully do it.
He then went on to congratulate himself by buying 3 ps3 games.
So I have my old log phone, and this blundering twit just cost me a very nice phone and 15 quids worth of parts.
 Can I turn into a lesbian or something.

And to continue on these blunders..... A little review on Simply Spray fabric paints...
They suck. Bought some from Hobbycrack, and reading the labels promising sunshine, happiness and a pot of gold, I bought into it.
Had a project where I needed fabric paints not to go stiff, so these would do perfect.
 If only the bottle worked.
I got to spray few little bits, and then ta-fucking-daa, the nozzle gets completely blocked, and after managing to get the blockage sorted, it stops spraying. No more pressure, and you can actually feel that there is a lot of paint left.
Had two different colours, and both had same problem.
After a few hours of shrieking, summoning the crafty demons to boot someone up the arse, witchcrafting, sourcery and luring glimmer of alcohol, drugs and cigarettes, I gave up and shoved the cursed cans into the bin.
Screw you guys, I`m going home.
