WOYWW #425 - Delivery Man

Yep delivery man woke me with a phone call at 7.30am to say he'd be here between 10am-11am! What a way to start the day!

Anyway Julia's Facebook post for WOYWW prompted me to get my post done today, so still in my nightie here is my desk.

I have actually done some scrapping, Shock Horror!

All this talk about doing cards for this year's Christmas and I am still on last year's Christmas photos for scraping!

Having fixed last week's Corsa Doll "Red", I thought I'd make the hanger for his friend "White" the same so will be doing that this week.

Both were very faded so I have touched up their mouths and eyes with Sharpie pens. Took a while to dry but seems to have done the trick.

I also have a bigger version of "Blue" who sits on the dashboard.

Here is a picture of them all, Cheri, White, Blue Moo, and Red. I guess I only liked the male versions!!

Popped in to The Works last week and bought my son a book on "Equations" so had to get myself something so got these paper pads.

I received this lovely array of colourful items for a SWAP on the theme of "Colour Fest" from fellow WOYWWer Sue.

And the delivery man, what is he delivering you may be thinking?

Well the scorching sun from past months has done untold damage to our kitchen "caravan" skylight so Hubby ordered a new one. Hope the rain will go away so he can fit it soon.....

Better get dressed before the delivery man comes don't you think!

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #424 - Did You Miss Me?

Had an impromptu visit to Mum's in Wales last week which was the reason for my absence.

I had thought I'd have time to craft in the Summer but with the HOT weather and outings it just doesn't seem to have happened YET!

Whilst on Rhossili Headland I duly waved to Jan!

I also dug out some old photos whilst there including this part contact strip.

I have done a photo order from Photobox, just in time for the 30% off promotion. (202 prints)

I still have my Christmas visit to Mum's to scrap from last year, but all set up for the moment crafting grabs me......

Other things:-

Need to mend one of my Corsa C'Mon Dolls from the car as his hanger broke off.

Also I have been getting ready for the Geocaching Pirate Summer Challenge. Yes I am truly bonkers!

Happy WOYWW Everyone

WOYWW #422 - Empty Desk

Hmmmm empty desk again except for list of things to do.

I finished the shirt collar removal last week and it was received with thanks, some money and more importantly some chocolate!

I also recovered my badminton racquet grip, never realised the handle would have been wooden! 

This is my spare, I did my main one too.

Only real crafting was a birthday card for hubby.

Glasses Update - I got my refund of £60 for the difference between the Varifocals I hated and the Bifocals which are much better.

I have since bought a pair of single vision driving sunglasses on-line for £30.40. Wasn't going to bother but it has been quite sunny of late!

So that's me, really need to do some scrapping and ordering of my next set of prints as I am 6 months behind now!!

Got a craft friend round today too, best set up the Cuttlebug!

Happy WOYWW Everyone.
