Aqua Angel and Other Favourites

This week's word on EIM is Angel. I have angel fish.
2mm (0.08") quilling strips

Moo Mania & More issued a really weird topic (at least weird to me) this fortnight  -  Favourite Stamps or Images. I couldn't get my head around this one for ages. Then my husband said:  "Do our blog's initials". To explain the seemingly weird name behind this blog:

About 3 years ago, some bright spark at the corporation where I work, decided it a clever idea to give us all 'working style personality' tests. Why just not just give us a pay rise than spend money on this garbage?
Anyway, I rang my husband from work and we did this electronic test together over the phone. Basically, the answers are selected in the shape of a Christmas tree as you go down the page. Anyway......    the resulting verdict is - I am a 'specialist'. Well......     we are a specialist together. The 'my' component of MySpecialist is actually a transcription of the Russian word for 'we'. And that's how we muck around together on this blog - my husband comes up with all the ideas and I make the stuff.
So here we are, MS:

  3. I've always wondered about the name of your log - thought it was some Australian quirk to the language! Thanks for explaining - agree about those silly tests though - what possible use could knowing you were a specialist do in your performance at work. My teaching board is always coming up with something weird like that - once they had a whole slew of new slogans that they represented with initials - I found it offensive when they put these initials up in the washroom, but no one seemed to see why I found it infringed on my rights to privacy. Guess they were all indoctrinated. (Used to get in trouble for my attitude.)
    Love your angelfish - the intricacy of the work is astounding - all those black stripes. I still haven't mastered the art of using an outline - something to work on.

    1. The best way to get something across in the work place is via the loo LOL.
      Google contour quilling and see what you can find.

    1. Was bound to happen sooner or later. It's not just the name of the blog. I discovered quilling through work, but that's a story for another post.
      Thanks Jean :)

    1. I had not thought of this take either. I was the other half of the specialist; my half simply made it :-D
