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.
