WOYWW My 12A(Don't want to attract any negative Karma)

Ok-Spydie has shamed me into posting. Wasn't going to do it today as time is just eating itself at the mo but I found my camera and took a shot. Not been highly creative recently but have managed to spend some money-hey we're not totally on the scrapheap yet y'know.Here we have one of my latest buys-the Vintage Rose collection from Craftwork Cards. When I'm challenged in the idea department I like to make the cards pictured with the kit and sometimes that's enough to set my mind going in other directions. A few thoughts have sprung to mind.
Am off to a demo on Saturday at my local craft shop-Crafty by Nature. It's a fabulous place but doesn't have a website. There's all your favourite stuff in there-Tim Holz, Paper Artsy, Debbie Moore, Embossing folders, Cutting dies-a dangerous place to be with a credit card. If you are near Bolton go for a look -it's at 11 Bolton Road Kearsley,BL4 8DB. Demos are £5.00 but limited to 10 people for 1 1/2 hours-in a separate room and if you spend over £5 you get your entrance fee refunded. On Saturday it's Creative Expressions new stamp range with TH and nestabilities. If you fancy the demo you need to book as places get snapped up quickly.
For anyone who is asking my DH is much more positive now about his health since we visited the Heart Failure nurse last Wednesday and she put him on different drugs to attempt to get rid of the fluid build up which has made his life almost unbearable.
I haven't been able to do much hopping lately but the knitting is still progressing. Love to you all and hope to drop in.
If anyone is reading this and hasn't joined in yet with WOYWW- that's" What's on your worktop Wednesday?"- get over to Julia's place where she will explain it all.
Hugs to everybody- Betty.

  6. that photo - I keep ducking my head - what's under the desk?

  7. Glad to hear about your hubby. Such good news. Sounds like that craft store is my kind of place, too. Hope you have fun this weekend and don't do too much credit card damage. Happy WOYWW,.

  8. glad you posted, its always good to check in. I hope your DH's new meds do the trick.

  9. Good news about your DH Betty, such a worry - and being low makes everything seem so much worse. Very glad and hopeful that the nurse's take on things will be positive.
    I'm guessing that you get your £5 back at most demo days?!! The kit you're working with is gorgeous, and I agree, just the job to fulfilla creative need without too much fretting.

  10. Your desk looks nice and busy - just the way it should do!

  11. going to a demo sounds fun! hope you had a good time!

  12. Hi Betty, perfect looking craft desk. Wish I lived a bit nearer so I could check out the demos. Have fun and don't spend too much, as if! Glad to hear your hubby is feeling a bit better and hope you are OK too.
