WOYWW and swans nesting!

Hello my dear Ladies!

How are you all this lovely morning?? We have a lovely bright sunny morning here in Slovenia! I hope most of you out there have a nice morning too!


First thing is first I must pass on 2 awards I was given to by Linby....and my decision is they will go to Angie from Shozzy's Place for her witty and down to earth blogging and to Vicki from Artistic Licence for doing a lot of lovely crafts and blogging and also managing to help out her sister with her kids which I think is a lovely thing to do! Congrats ladies! You are wonderful and inspire me!!!!
Spring has come and we are starting to wear less clothes - no coats to cover up all the winter sins! I have woved to do something about my very neglected body that has been making cards all winter, eating all sort of sweet treats and slowly become bigger and bigger... I said to my friend Ana "we should do something about this excess fat on our bodies", so we decided to do a long walk everyday until it gets warmer and then start cycling! Not cycling on a bike with very thin tyres and wearing lycra no, no, no....If I tell you I have a lovely red bike with a big basket on it that tells you I am not the lycra kind of cyclist - still cycling is cycling and it does get your legs in shape! (if you do a lot of it!) Anyway we started with our walks - there is a lovely lake near where I live and the councel has cleaned it all up put benches around and made it a really nice place for walking.... I think that although our main issue are cards and cardmaking we should show each other things that are not only related to our desks because I am sure all you ladies are a bit curios about Slovenia ( some of you might have not even heard about it) So today I will show you my desk and a few photos I have taken by the lake!
First my desk and my craft room - I decided to take a wider picture so you can see more of my craft room..
Not much going on at my desk at the moment - I bought some new papers and a Glue Glider Pro - I am not sure  I like it or not yet, as I have only made 2 cards with it..



Here is where I walk....The swans are nesting....


And here are some photos of the lake....


Nice decking where people sit and look at the lovely nature....

The decking from the other side of the lake ( see I am good I walked all around  the lake! ha, ha)


Our lovely mountains in the background - still covered in snow....



And as last an arty photo....
So there that is my WOYWW....sometimes nature can be a lovely inspiration for you work so I think I will be crafting after I come home from my walk this afternoon...
Have a lovely day 
Hugs to all of you

  2. Lovely shots - how lovely to live within easy reach of such beauty.
    Like the new paper and very interested to hear how you get on with the glue glider - useit till it's finished and then decide - if you want a new one, it was probably a goodie!

  17. Oh how odd is this? I thought to myself just yesterday that I knew nothing about Slovenia apart from it must be close to Italy (because you went shopping there) and I thought it had been part of the former Yugoslavia but wasn't sure, so I went to Wikipedia and read all about the country!, and now here you are showing us photos!! How amazing! It looks beautiful where you live and I love the mountain shot too.
    Hugs

  21. Thankyou so much for thinking of me and for saying that I am witty and down to earth ...my head will be so big I will have to watch out as I go through doors lol but then it will match my rather large over eating, nonsmoking body. (Just over 2 years now but cant shift the weight ...not that I've tried very hard.)
    Will sort the awards out over the next few days ...thankyou again
    Your lake is beautiful ...wonderful photos xx
