WOYWW #428 - Journal & Cards

My desk this week.

Just remembered I got a new white pen last week and it is proving to work well. It is a Uni-ball Signo broad, pigment ink. Not had much luck with white pens in the past - we'll see.

So I did the journal page inspired by the diecuts from last week, in fact I did two!

I also made a card from the diecuts for a SWAP on the theme of Gingham.

I  also added the new "Happy Birthday" diecuts to two previously made cards for birthdays this month.

So I actually got a bit crafty and inky this past week in the end - horrah.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #427 - Craftiness

Nothing like a Craft Shop Birthday Demo Day to get the ball rolling.

Met up with a couple of new crafty friends last Saturday and headed out to CraftsULove in Charlwood.

Bought some dies and got a goodie bag.

Then watched the demos and bought some more dies!!! Even got a die in the goodie bag.

Die Heaven! 

So my desk is covered with the first cuts of said dies! I can feel a journal page coming on.....

I got a couple of 12x12 sheets in the goodie bag and would you believe one of mine had a fairy playing the harp on it - all my friends had a different sheet - so how cool was that, someone is watching over me.

Loved this demo card for Christmas so bought the tree die.

Then added its first cut onto my current scrapbook page (yes still on last Christmas).

The best thing of all was when we were in the very big queue for the checkout and my friend was getting dies despite not having a diecutting machine. We were chatting about this and the lady behind had one to spare and just happened to live near me so I went and got it later for £20 - bargin. What an amazing coincidence.

And for the record
I also placed and had published a new geocache in a local church and added pirate goodies for the Summer theme.

Add on top of that I wasn't well last Thursday evening and all day Friday, as well as the previous Monday. My hormones are really mixing it up these days, no idea what each day will bring but still hanging in there.

Happy WOYWW Everyone.

WOYWW #426 - Blue

Had the sewing machine out yesterday to fix a muslin which had become a bit holey.
Thought you'd prefer that shot than the empty one of today!

The delivery came as scheduled last week and it was in a HUGE box compared to the size of the item. My son and I just had to have a play!

Skylight all done now, it took a whole day for the boys to fix it.
Now that's better!

Last week I performed surgery on my third Corsa Doll, "Blue" to replace his batteries so now he says, "C'Mon" again. You can see he is a bit bigger than "Red" and "White" and doesn't have a hanger loop.

Still not got back into my scrapping, oh well one day.........

Happy WOYWW Everyone.
