Hello my dear friends!
I am not on here as frequent as I would want to be mostly due to so many things going on and I just can't cope with it all! I am settling into the English way of life but I must admit I miss my family and my country! We hear about immigrants daily in the news and the sometimes really hostile words against them but believe me unless you have to leave your homeland, there is no place like home. Everywhere else you will always be a foreigner. Oh sorry that is just my little political thought after the general election and the now next big theme coming up: Europe! The media has almost bored us to death with the election, now we are going to be finished off with the European theme! HUH!
But sorry really I must get back to what this blog post is supposed to be about: WOYWW. Well I will have to start with the sad news first that are again not crafty but are to do with my DBFs operation. He was supposed to have one yesterday and was called up at the last minute and was told it is cancelled and we were given another date in 3 weeks time! Not fun at all! He already had 2 pre op assesements and nothing happened now he will have to probably go for the third one! NHS - what can I say? If you don't have the money to pay for the operation you are doomed! But to get to the point of all this writing is that after finding out that the op is off, my calender has opened for 3 weeks and I have time to go to the BIG WOYWW CROP! YIPEEE! Yes that is the happy good news of this week!
I will have to put on my thinking cap and start making those WOYWW swap ATCs which I would like to dish out at the event! I haven't been doing much crafting lately so it is hard to start but I guess I will get back into the mood!
So finally showing my desk today....
As you can see I am still crafting on the table in the lounge! I put my craft room decorating on hold because of the op but I will probably start next week as I would like to have my own little space!
Soo what do you see on my desk - a bunch of Lil' Inker dies - love them and I think they will be used for my ATCs but not sure yet! Then there is a Winnie and Walter stamp set - new I must say and this:
It is a zen colouring book I bought in Tesco, supposedly there will be more of them. I love what it says at the bottom of the front page:
I am looking forward to coloring in this book - I think it will be really relaxing!
Here is another shot of my desk from the top....
Here you can see I have taken over most of the table - I try not to invade too much of my DBFs space but the crafty stuff just seems to spread....:-)
One more shot - it was my birthday on Sunday - another year older but we can't turn the clock backwards can we, so we just have to brave it ahead...we went on a trip with the MG club and had an ice cream on the beach in Margate....and here is a picture of another year older me....
Have a lovely week - I will see some of you at the crop, others I will "see" next week at the usual WOYWW meeting!
Lots of hugs to all,
