WOYWW #453 - Fairy Snowflake

As I might need to be a SWAP fairy again I bought this magazine as it has a freebie fairy die by Joanna Sheen, well that is my excuse anyway! Seem to have got a piece of mirricard with it too.

As for crafting, all I have managed this week is to mend the Christmas decoration my son did in school some 14 years ago. It had become very brittle and bits were missing so I hot glued and silicon glued it to a piece of scalloped acetate. I broke off some bits to even it out and stuck other bits back too. Popped a gem in the centre as well - aw.

Did take my tree down last Friday on Candlemas, it's on my previous post, the first non-WOYWW post since last October! Golly Gosh.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

That's a good bit of mending - pleasing when that happens! I don't buy mags anymore, not even with tempting things on the front, I have a Readly subscription instead.

I was poised to hop on the WOYWW desk this week at 6am but my phone wouldnt refresh to here I am gone 3pm as I'm at work finally managing to do it. Karen #34

Hello bj,your Christmas decorations make place for valentines,perfect timing 😉I am so ashamed for messing up so badky with linking 😶

Sharon Madson said...

I don’t buy magazines much anymore, since there is so much online, but they are fun to look at. I see your glasses on your craft area. Since I had my cataract surgeries, that is where mine are most of the time since I only need them once in awhile for close up detail, Happy WOYWW! #37.

Nice die.
Not a clue how you chat on someone's timeline - nor how I got there first - I just went on because I had not been sleeping - slept from 8.30 am though - until 5.30 pm. Still full of a cold though.
Hugs, Neet 1 xx

I've seen that die but couldn't decide. Would love to see how you use it.Have a great woyww, Angela x17x

Heather Marshall said...

Hi BJ, that's lovely that you were able to repair the decoration your son made. I can't recall that my daughters ever made Christmas decorations at school, or at home come to that! I've missed out! Hope you have a lovely week, Heather #31

sandra de said...

You have done a wonderful job repairing the xmas decoration. I think we all treasure the little trinkets made by our children. Have a lovely week.

Hi, Bj, you're not the only one who succumbed this week though not a fairy for me but a stamp set that came with Crafts Beautiful. What are we like! You've made a wonderful job of fixing the tree ornament - your son will be pleased. Sorry to see you have a bad back - hope you make a speedy recovery. Hugs, Elizabeth x #30

Lovely snowflake!
And such a great freebie! :o
We don´t get such things here in Sweden
when we buy a magazine. Looking forward to see
what you will create with it. :)

Happy WOYWW,
