Good morning my friends. Honestly, I have no idea where the time has gone – I must have blinked, because suddenly it is two weeks since I last posted! Well, never the less – here goes – my desk (lousy photo!)!
The aftermath of a bit of a card-fest! You can see my pile of paper I use as a softer base when stamping; my white basket with important bits; a pile of cards all bagged and ready for either the hotel or local charity shop; my handcream, near the front of the desk so I must have just used it; the diary, open and ready for the manic events of the next week and a half; the computer has an image of an azalea taken last year on a visit to Bodnant Gardens; and the little book Neet gave me a couple of years ago. Yes, the boxes and baskets are still under the desk and no, there is still nothing in them as the craft event in June has been postponed until nearer Christmas – phew!
But I have actually done work on my desk this past two weeks – and I have also been receiving bits and pieces ready for the team to take out to Uganda.
A lovely parcel of bags from our Jan (LLJ) arrived one day. Got home to discover a note telling me there was a parcel in the greenhouse! Thank you SO much – they are gorgeous! I know Annie (Wipso) and Jo (Twiglet) have been busy, too, but I’ve not been that way to visit yet and pick everything up.
So, here’s a little of what I have been up to…
A bit of a mixed bag, as it were. More Pollyanna Pickering, a gorgeous balloon image Shazsilverwolf gave me, and a stamped image of the serenity prayer.
More Pollyanna, two of my own photos (Windermere and Dovedale), two tags, an embossed card, a Thomas Kinkade image, and one try at a real fancy easel card! This last one was only possible because when I was away with the family and out looking for wallpaper, I discovered a Gemini machine on VERY special offer. Cuts beautifully – yippetty-do-da! Yes, I’ve been having fun with it!
Then I played a little with stencils, pastels, and shimmery watercolours, and another tag.
And last, but not least… When pottering around Llandudno the other day I found some craft things in one of the charity shops. Well, as you know, it’s against the rules not to look… and I found a bag stuffed full of kit pieces, cards, envelopes, fancy shaped cut-outs… so I played! Added a few of my own bits as well, just to make them more “me” and less “Create and Craft”…
So that’s me this week folks. Chris and Adrian (Mr and Mrs D will be moored up outside their potential new home by Wednesday evening (I’m writing this late Tuesday evening). They have made it right across country, and complete on the purchase next Tuesday. I will be missing in action next week, as they have asked me if I would help with some unpacking of boxes. I’m sure they will have forgotten what they possess! I’ve seen the internet pictures of their new home, but it will be good to see it in real life, and see them established in it!!
Take care folks. God bless.
