WOYWW521 – After the celebration

Seemingly not a lot going on here! Hello my friends. Well, what a celebration last week. I managed to get round everyone, and leave comments for all except Kathryn – sorry, I don’t do Instagram, Facebook, or any of the other social media – but I did come peek.

My desk this week shows the aftermath of making 30 ATCs, bagging them, putting them in cards and envelopes – and… see the box at the top of the stairs, waiting to go down? Well, there they are, all ready for the crop on Saturday! Actually ON the desk is my Pergamano box, ready to take away next week – erm, yes!! I’m off again on my travels! Quainton in Buckinghamshire to see my grandies A level and GCSE art exhibition, then Nottingham to pick up the caravan, then up to Cumbria, Northumberland and North Yorkshire – so I’ll be MIA for some time. Yes, I’ll have my camera with me.

Sitting on the stool near the top of the stairs is the CD player – not even plugged in since I got back, but ready to go again! And, to be honest, that’s about it! I have a birthday card and an anniversary card to make before the weekend – but otherwise no commitments.

So there you have me folks. Here in a gloriously sunny North Wales, I’m preparing for Mr and Mrs D and Helen to arrive on Friday ready to all drive together down to Shrewsbury for the crop, preparing again to travel with our family caravan, and trying to ensure I have everything necessary done before going away.

See you when I get back!!

Take care. God bless.

  1. I am so looking forward to it! your desk is so tidy but you have been so busy – I just made atcs no extras and I am far from ready but I’ll get there! You have lots to look forward to again and will make the most of your trip I am sure. See you Friday! Helen #3

  2. I just love how your blog gives us such huge photos. It is so easy to look at your desk and enjoy what we see. Thank you for changing hour blog to this one.
    How exciting going seeing the art exhibitions. Takes me back to when I used to be an examiner and travelled around the schools for the art exhibitions – such talent was on hand and some of the work was amazing. Hard to believe it had been done by teenagers in those days. Guess it is even more amazing now with the technology they no doubt use. Looking forward to seeing photos – lots please.
    See you Saturday, take are

  6. It’s so tidy!! My word you’ll have put some miles on that car since you first drove it down to us for a crop! You’ve got a lot of adventuring to do, so glad you’ll, e able to have a ‘day off’ at crop! Don’t fall over that box…that makes me really nervous.! Xx

  7. First, I’m glad to read I’m not the only blogger who doesn’t do other social media sites. It’s good that you are headed to the crop, so I hope we get to see photos before you head off across country again.

    I always like seeing your bright space, so this was rather different, especially with that box ready to head down the stairs. Happy WOYWW from #1.

  8. Your desk looks beautifully organised and certainly not like it’s had 30 ATC’s worth of work done on it! Hope you have a great time on your travels – it sounds like a fun adventure and I look forward to seeing some photos.
    Enjoy the crop,
    Diana xx #18

  9. I think you’re going to have to bring your caravan to the Crop in order that Helen can fit in all the craft stuff she’s bringing!! Lol! Really looking forward to seeing you, lovely gal. I hope you have an amazing time on your travels afterwards, give my love to Northumberland – we lived there for 12 years and I loved it.

  12. Oh, wow, you’re such a busy lady – certainly making the most of your independence! I’m a little jealous, although I don’t even like travelling LOL. Have fun at the crop – it would be lovely to meet you if I can make it (still not sure). 30 ATCs is a LOT – no doubt I’ll see them posted on people’s blogs next week. Safe travels! zsuzsa #23

  13. Hi Margaret, ooh that sounds like a lot of traveling in your near future. I am excited for you that you enjoy it 🙂 and your space looks so inviting with everything just so ready to be played with again. ~Stacy #27

  14. I’m so looking forward to meeting you properly on Saturday – I have got my ATCs and bookmarks ready but now need to plan what I want to take with me! Happy WOYWW! Love & God Bless, Caro x (#15)

  15. Hi Margaret, love how bright and spacious your craft area is. Mine is big enough, it just looks dark and gloomy half the time. I wonder if I should talk to Mr M about converting the attic – now there’s a thought for the future! I’m so looking forward to seeing you again on Saturday. Have a lovely week, Heather xx #11

  16. What a fabulous light craft room you have…and very organised! See you Saturday! Being brief – trying to get a few desks in before my back gives in! Hugs, Chrisx 31

  17. So wish I could be with you all on Saturday but know you’ll have a great time. I am off to the Doncaster Dome on Sunday so it will make up for it a bit. Loving your craft space though I think I’ve told you that before. Have a lovely crafty week and a very happy woyww, Angela x17x

  18. I’ve been enjoying so many desks with ATCs so be sure and share yours next week! And pics of the retreat! Great cleaned up desk! Have fun this weekend!
