WOYWW #382 - Sans Crafting

A whole lot of nothing has come to pass on my desk with regards to crafting.

I did fiddle with my latest photos and seem to be having a pink and purple moment!

I cut off the sleeves of a t-shirt for badminton but now it gaps at the armholes so that will need sorting, or rather be added to the pile of stuff awaiting the sewing machine's emergence from its wardrobe hibernation!

A pretty empty tissue box awaits being added to my patterned paper/card box.

Oh and the sign to remind me to go to my harp lesson needs putting away as I went yesterday! Having a laugh trying to play Handel's Harp Concerto which is grade 8 and I am barely grade 2 level - LOL

Had a pretty horrid week, usual monthly a week early, felt devoid of energy for about 2 weeks before and during that.

Car oil leak wasn't sorted by garage last week then a couple of days later my car battery decided to die. It was still in its RAC warranty so they came and replaced it but that took time and it is still leaking oil so is going to a different garage on Friday. The electric driver's side window had a blip Monday as well but seems to have sorted itself???

Add to that, although I managed to play badminton last night, I got hit on my back by my partner ouch!

Also the top of my water bottle broke and I skinned my finger trying to undo it! More ouch!

So definitely no crafting for me just now as it is even difficult to write as it is my middle finger on my right hand!

Hope everyone else's WOYWW is a good one.

WOYWW #381 - Lambykins

Well I managed to do my Lambykins page using some gifted papers and handmade flowers from my new dies.

So now on my desk are the next set of photos laid out under pieces of plastic to keep the dust off and to save the bits from being blown about.

Also on my desk is the delightful SWAP card from my SWAP partner using up bits and bobs as the theme for this month.

Now I have to go to get a filling at the dentist, tummy is all jiggled about and no idea what state I'll be in later for replies.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #380 - Google+

Please please please tell me why some bloggers on Google+ I can quite happily comment on without having to sign up to Google Plus and some I cannot?

I really would love to have commented on Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith's page last week but unfortunately was unable to, nor could I find an email for her. If you see this Zsuzsa please email me so I can reply directly to you.

I could happily comment on Vicky Fisher and Angela Radford's Google+ blogs, so what makes their set up so different???

As for my desk, not much happening, other than my next set of photos awaiting inspiration and my Godson's birthday card pending.

I did do a scrap page over the weekend. It had been lurking for simply ages as I wasn't sure whether to wait for the photos of the sunflowers flowering or not but went with not.

Happy WOYWW Everyone

WOYWW #379 - Back to Work!

Yep - just stuff on my desk and very little crafting!

My Bits & Bobs Tin is still there, I did make one another card from it, but that is for a swap so is lurking behind it????

The closest I have got to crafting was using my corner punch and crop-o-dile to make a little laminated card for my Geocaching trackable. This will be the 3rd I have released, the last two have stalled somewhat, well the first has disappeared for over a year now and the second, who knows?

Then there's my WOW box I made for Preschool last term. I found my son's Spot toy packed away in a cupboard this Summer (well he is 17yrs now!) so now I can use it when I read the book to the children. There are a few more books I have prepared to use and my notebook and pencil case all ready too.

Yes I have been ironing again, hence the jug of water. Managed half Monday, perhaps the other half today.

And lastly my little pouch of mini Ink Joy pens. I love these pens and was really looking for a mini pen for my Geocaching (to attach to my phone case) but these just HAD to pop into my basket.

I guess that is me.

Happy WOYWW Everyone
