Hello there my friends. I cannot believe it can possibly be the last day of January already. It’s my grand daughter’s 15th birthday – so please excuse a hasty post today – don’t want to miss phoning her! As I write this here on the North Wales coast it is almost midnight Tuesday. Outside it is blowing a hooley and pouring with rain. My poor garden pond is filled to the brim, we have had so much rain. But inside it is warm and snug – and I’m meeting up with you all.

So, my desk this week – still not too bad, despite my very best efforts at messing it up by working really hard – so I took the photo from a different angle…

From left to right – a magazine I found in the shop the other day with a lovely embossing folder, die and stamp set on it, baby wipes, heat gun, kitchen roll, tub of gesso with a little cottage on top, plastic boxes of embellishments, glitter glues and stickles, blue tub of foam pads, pair of specs, sanding block and fine sand paper (“Borrowed” from the garage downstairs!) and bag of sweets. At the front is my cutting mat with pile of paper for practice stamping, and generally making a mess, two A4 sheets of Thomas Kinkade images, and a couple of my own photos printed out and ready to use. Up on the shelf is the usual array of clutter necessary for creativity. All in aid of making more cards and gifts. I now have 83 cards made and ready for the hotel – I’m rather chuffed at the productivity which has been going on here!!! This impressive number means I can have my day out at the show on Friday with a clear conscience, knowing much is done and ready to take round the bay (Oh the bliss of living near the sea and being able to visit friends by travelling along the promenade!)

So that’s me this week, folks. I’ll come visit, but it may take a few days. I shall be AWOL next week. I’m travelling to Buckinghamshire – one of my grand daughters has asked to be baptised and I’m going to stay with my family – but on the way… I’m off to see LLJ and her hubby for a couple of days first. Sounds like we are going to have a great deal of fun!

Take care folks. Thank you for your visits and comments. I love reading them. God bless.

    Well you see Margaret I did finally join in! And comment .. catching up. Haven’t mg a lazy Sunday arvo after very busy month in January… so it was LLJ you were going to see. Now I understand. It’s hard to comprehend how close everything is compared to Oz! Well done on 84 cards. I’d never make that many… takes me all year to make that many for Christmas. Do like Thomas Kinkade images. Thanks for sharing and for popping over too! Shaz in Oz.x {Calligraphy Cards – Shaz in Oz}

    Happy Belated WOYWW. It has been a busy couple of days and not had a chance to sit down with my laptop until now (and need to get up again and cook our meal !). I will see you at LLJ’s next week. Wonderful to meet up with you both finally. You are definitely more productive than me. My days seem to just disappear. Ali x #26

    Your desk looks super-organised, Margaret. When I am in full productivity mode the place looks like WW3… I love the idea of hanging your tapes on mug trees. That’s a great space-saver. Thanks for your visit and your sweet comment – yes, we were delighted with how Mum’s memorial service went, and I feel so good about everything now. When I said to my hubby how amazing it was that all the bitterness had gone, he immediately said, “O death, where is thy sting?” No operation date yet but I’m sure it won’t be long now. Happy belated WOYWW, Shoshi #16

    Still productive and still tidy, am super impressed. I think the bag of sweets is the least you need to keep up your energy! You will love being with Jan and Gordon, and erm, what a great route to Buckinghamshire!!!

    Hello there and thank you for popping by. I am late visiting as I had to go and do some shopping earlier, for my Aunt. We then took it over to her and had coffee and cake. I love your work space, I’m sure I would enjoy sitting there creating. You have made an amazing amount of cards. Happy Birthday to your granddaughter. Have a lovely time away- I know you will.

    Yep definitely feet up day after all that driving yesterday but off to church connect/house/cell group tonight. They all have different names and I manage to keep up but hubby has no idea where I’m going of an evening as it could just as likely be badminton or dancing! Didn’t realise the “author” of my embroidery, thanks for that, it is the 4th of a set my Mum has but I’d given away this one so redid it 30 odd years later as a surprise! She was WELL surprised. Thanks for the visit BJ#19

    My goodness, Margaret, you have been busy … that’s an awful lot of cards made. I just about manage one or two a week – even less at the moment. Thanks for your comment. I’m still reeling from our experience in Resus but everyone there was absolutely marvelous – what would we do without the NHS! Sounds like you are going to have a busy but lovely week ahead. Give Jan a hug from me. Hugs, Elizabeth x #25

    Sounds like you’ve been busy but also that this next week holds much too. A visit to Jans?….oh how lovely. I can just imagine the chat, cake eating and generally having fun. Enjoy every minute and please give that gorgeous girl a big hug from me (and have one yourself too of course). I chuckled at your comment over at mine this morning. What you see there is just the tip of the iceberg because what I rarely share is my rail full of alterations and repairs that also gets done each week…..I like to keep busy
