WOYWW and I am back!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

Has it really been 2 weeks since I last posted?? I can't believe it ! I have been so busy I didn't even realise that 2 weeks have gone, but all that is now in the past and I can start my  "normal" life again! 
So what has been going on? Well on the 24th of June we finally opened the new library, so up to that day I was swamped with work at work and work at home doing my bookmarks! That is why I didn't play last week as it was the day before we opened the library and I went in early, and worked late and then when I came home I had to finish off my bookmarks! The opening of the library was very nice - I will do a separate post about that, as I will get some of the photos today! On Friday we had a holiday - Independance day! I had a nice lay in as I haven't had one for a long time (I was working in my craft room every morning at 5am) and then I had to pack as I had to catch a plane for England Friday evening! A couple from the MG club I belong to were celebrating their 40th ruby wedding annivarsary so I was invited to this lovely event - that will be another post! Huh I will be posting a lot! But of course first is first! WOYWW! I have seen a few have got the woyww easel from Julia and so did  I - THANK YOU SO MUCH JULIA!!!!!!!! I love that it is made of wood - such a lovely material! 
And believe it or not that lovely easel is all I have on my desk at the moment!



Of course I must show off my bookmarks - they were a great success - everybody loved them, some of the librarians that also came to the opening thought it a brilliant idea for library events and they want me to do a workshop!!! Me?? A workshop??? Ha, ha....
So here is my desk last week before I gave away my bookmarks...a right mess!



And here are all my lovely bookmarks - they are now all living in peoples books..... I put them on the carpet in the lounge so they could all be seen.....






Not one of them is the same - I am proud of my work - and it was hard work too!
As I am finally not that busy I will be snooping around your desks after I come back from work!
Have a lovely day my dear friends!
Hugs to all of you!

  7. WOW, all those bookmarks...they are divine! Answering your question about the Cuttlebug... I use the Alteration dies in there... I just use a B Plate then the die, then the piece you are cutting and then your B Plate that you cut into... they go thru a treat and I have cut grungeboard with it too... was a bit concerned that they wouldn't fit but I haven't got a Big Shot, can't afford another cutting system so went for it. The thinner dies (like the tickets etc) I use an A Plate, B Plate and then another B plate again... hope that helps! x
