Hi Everyone and Happy WOYWW even if the weather is trying to make you miserable as it is here!
Well, life's been a bit manic around here the last couple of weeks with ordinary life (Wedding discussions and organisation???) getting in the way of blogging so I'm pretty chuffed that I'm managing to join in WOYWW again today. If any one hasn't a clue what I'm waffling on about go to the wonderful Julia's blog where all will be revealed.
This is my desk as of about 8 am this morning and it's not too bad if a tad boring. That's because I tipped a whole jar of water up last night so had to have a tidy up to get rid of all the soggy bits and dry everything else. Luckily there were no works in progress on there at the time and my lovely Craft Stamper mags weren't there then either otherwise you would all have heard the screams and bad language (like Oh sh.................oot!). I was studying that particular Isobelle Norris article last night because it's the inspiration chosen by my buddy Judith for our current Craft Stamping Quartet project. From the bits there can you guess what I'm hoping my theme is going to be? Last Friday I went to the Artisan show (brilliant show for stampers and beaders) at Leamington Spa and there are a couple of things on my desk that I haven't found a home for yet. There's also a pile of PaperArtsy and Crafty Individuals stamps on the worktop behind me but I forgot to take a pic of those. There's a couple of acetate pieces I found whilst mopping up and a piece of kitchen roll covered in Glimmer Mists that was in the bottom of my spray booth after a misting session. I liked the colours on it so I stuck it to a piece of card for use somehow in the future. Amazing what you find when you really have to get to the bottom of all those pieces that are just hanging about. I suspect they'll 'hang about' for quite a while longer too, Lol!
As the desk is a mite boring I thought I'd show you my collection of dies and embossing folders and the like.
On top you can see the Paper Artsy dies I bought last Friday. Not so long ago all my dies and folders fitted easily into this box but then my Nesty collection started to grow ............. and grow and then Sir Tim Holtz decided to get together with Sizzix and now ................ I have dies stashed in the box my iron came in
and piled up on the windowsill
I think I need a much bigger box and of course, I'm being sorely tempted by the new lot of dies that have just come out, Aaaarrrgh!!!!
Wow, this is turning into a long post so if you are still with me thankyou because I want to share a card before I go get some dreaded chores done. It was my 'baby's' birthday at the weekend. She was thirty (God that makes me feel ancient) and a while ago after rewatching Dirty Dancing for the 'nth time I said I ought to stop calling her Baby but she said she liked it as it made her feel special and safe so 'Baby' it still is, Lol! Here's the card.
and a close up of the tag. I love that TH quote!
Well if you stuck with my waffle to the end you deserve a medal, Lol!
Have a lovely day everyone and guess what, the sun has come out and I have blue skies! Lovely! Shame I have to go and clean the bathroom though, yuck!
