Yay folks. I've looked forward to this since I did it last week. It's been a shot in the arm for me or a kick up the wotsit! Great motivation-thankyou, thankyou ,thankyou.
I'm not making excuses for myself but the state of everything was due to my inability to tackle the task of getting rid of the layer of soot and builders dust covering most of my room. Well I did the work top and the floor and managed to create a bit more order out of all the stash I'd bought but not homed during the time I had off dealing with other stuff.
It's been lovely getting back into some blog hopping and trying to catch up with all the comings and goings.
For all those who asked for a look in some of the boxes I've opened one and it shows my solution to one of the ribbon problems -what to do with the small pieces which are too lovely (and long) to throw away. Boxes I got for something else have been punched with my big bite and the ends pulled through so I can see them.. The larger plastic boxes are sweetie boxes (Haribo probably)from a shop given to me by my friend Lynne. They are a great practical size. I try to keep stash close as it was a struggle to get up and down when the FMS was really bad.
Ah but WOYWW Betty?
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Craftwork Cards and I had a delivery on Saturday of my latest order containing the Romance project plus some Ritzy cardstock in Lime, Purple and Grey.
I made the designs in the pack then I've had some more ideas since-you can see a couple of these on their blog but just for Debs -who asked where the bags were-I made some bags.
Strictly speaking one's a card but for the other I've used a Green Sneakers bagamites template - I don't even know if you can get these in the UK any more, I've had a good look on the net but can't see a UK supplier.
Anyway I did promise I would let you into my little bag making hint but this post is getting very long and there will be pay back -sore shoulders fingers etc. so will do that later.
I'm not a layout expert-can you tell?
I'm not a linky expert either.
I'm not a challenge person 'cos stress is not good for me.
I'm really getting to like Wednesdays though.
PS thanks to the person who mentioned ATG guns. Fished it out, cleaned it and bought some refills. 3M's were having a sale, free postage too. Should be ashamed at all that unused stash and lovely equipment waiting to be used hohum.
The lovely new wetroom sure needs cleaning.
Go on join in with us on what's on your work desk Wednesday.
