Hello my friends. I’m writing this latish Tuesday evening, thinking about my desk – or should I say desks, in the plural. It has been a crazy week, hardly time to breathe – but before I show you… thank you so much for all the birthday wishes that came last week across the ether and all the visitors who left comments! I had a good day – a bit of retail therapy, coffee and cake out – well, actually, hot chocolate as I don’t do coffee, more pieces put in that jigsaw from last week, a bit of craft time, with the present Mrs D bought me, and TV. Thursday morning found me down at church with yet more soup and a completely manic time – loads of visitors to “The Bible Comes To Life” exhibition, and they all came in for lunch as well as our usual step inside crowd! None of us were quite sure which way was up by the time we had finished for the day. I had planned to meet up halfway across Britain with Chris and hubby – but hubby was suffering from having three teeth extracted – so we didn’t do that – I finished the jigsaw instead! – Yes – finished it – all those sky pieces from last week – YAY!! Then suddenly it was Sunday and our worship group were playing so I was behind a microphone, then buying all the ingredients to make a giant cottage pie for our church family meal Wednesday evening. BUT – I found time to have a fun filled craftathon on Monday – never went out the front door, and succeeded in making over 2 dozen Christmas cards.
So, my desk has moved around the house – upstairs, downstairs, kitchen… here’s the evidence!
Top left – the real desk – the aftermath of the craftathon. Goodness only knows why the green mat is empty! It hasn’t been all week… Second down, left – the floor desk! Yes, drawers out, waste bin over flowing. Top right – mince and lots of vegetables, all cooked and cooling, awaiting the potatoes which are in those two giant saucepans – and no, folks, they aren’t mine – they belong to the church. My biggest one is only about half that size. Third down on the right – a half made blanket – relaxation in front of the TV of an evening.
The second collage of pictures – at the top, my pile of made cards, and the two at the bottom – my efforts with Chris and Adrian’s present – a box of twelve brushos. WOW!!! I really enjoyed my self – The “love” card is brushos spotted onto card then sprayed with water and allowed to do what they wanted. The “hope” card, the water colour paper was soaked then the tiniest bit of powder sprinkled on top. I made some other small sheets of colour as well – cut one up to make the word “Joy” on the Christmas card in the picture above. I have a sneaky feeling that all this effort describes my style perfectly – clean and simple!!
So that’s me this week folks, here on the North Wales coast. I had an email from Shaz in Oz to say she was safely home after her world trip – I imagine she is still sleeping off the effects!
I’ll be around to visit over the next few days – I do come see you, Kathryn – it’s just that I can’t leave a comment – sorry.
Take care everyone. God bless.
