WOYWWmy number6 and rushing to hairdressers

Off to Julia's again for that special day of the week to see what everyone has been up to.
If you've not done it yet then today's the day. You know you want to.
So what IS on my work desk today.

During this time blogger refused to upload pics so went to hairdressers.
Then my latest purchase arrived and I started to unpack it. Yes folks you've persuaded me the way forward has to be some really useful boxes so on Sunday I ordered a unit from Storage 4 Crafts.
Boxes open I realised a piece was missing so I phoned and they were extremely helpful and the missing piece is now on it's way from Devon to Lancashire.
I have bravely waded in and started to reorganise SOME of my stuff into the 18 boxes.
Several shoe boxes and tomato boxes are now in the bin and I've rediscovered many old friends.
Back to WOYWW.
My son's partner has a special birthday on Sunday and a big party is taking place at a local pub with two live bands and children's entertainer. She is very proud of her Native American ancestry so I've been struggling to make something appropriate. Luckily thanks to WOYWW I found Mo's Digital Pencil and she had a Jingle Dancer. I have made the embellishments myself by using a free moccasin pattern downloaded and resized for teeny tiny feet. Cut from a window leather which luckily I hadn't used and sewn with button thread. I bound the feathers together too. Now all I have to do is make a card!
Off to check out what you lot are up to over at Julia's place. Are you coming?


  1. Sounds as though you have had a busy day....love your desk it looks very organised. So glad you are getting your missing piece .....

  6. Hi Betty, love the moccasins and I'm sure your son's partner will too.

  7. Great card idea - hope the party is fab. Love your green scro pal..have just got mine and I do love it. And good on ya - the sorting and storing, my goodness you'll be smug!!

  8. Hi Betty - what a clever thing to do to make your own embellishment for this unique and unusual card - Mo has some great images and this one sounds like it fits your bill perfectly...

    Now reorganising your stash... from what I saw a couple of weeks back - I recon you'll be ordering more "really useful boxes" soon... goodbye shoeboxes - don't proper ones look so much better... hope you show us what you have done next week!

    Big hugs
