Good morning my bloggy friends!

I am a day late but it is sort of still the festive season! So first


I wish you all health, happiness and may you prosper and may all your wishes for this new year come true!

Next a big congratulations to Julia on the 500 WOYWW: What an amazing achievement! Julia you have really done a lovely job and the wonderful friendship we have all gained from this is priceless! I am really thankful to have been part of this and I hope I will be in the future!

 I haven't been blogging much all this year! Mostly as I am still struggling with my knees and trying to loose weight and it takes all my energy! I have lost 10 kg which is about 20 pounds but it is not enough. It is so easy to put weight on but a terrible struggle to get it off! I will not complain I have to do this, get this operation and move forward! 

Regarding blogging I am hoping to get back to it more regularly in 2019. Also try to not just blog on Wednesdays for WOYWW but also more often on other days and try to talk about other things! I will see how it goes! I have the ideas in my head and hopefully it will happen!

Now my desk is festive - I am at home in Slovenia at the moment and after a big rush up to Christmas to get all the cards out, there are just remnants of all the work done but nothing I can really show - I did make about 80 cards - they were all different! I think I have exhausted myself!

I think you can't find more messy then that - just random stuff everywhere! I am thinking of tidying up and changing things - here in Slovenia and in my craft room in England. That is on my to do list for 2019!
Just got my "tea up" call! So I better finish this! Wishing you all the best - have a great year, month, week and keeeeeeeep craaaaaafting! 
Love and hugs to all of you


  1. Happy New Year Dolores and WOYWW 500! Hope you've had a lovely time in Slovenia. I feel for you with the losing weight thing, I'm going to as well this year because of problems with my left ankle. Come on, we can do it together...well done on what you have lost so far.

  2. Happy New Year Dolores. Funnily enough, my son spent new Year in Slovenia as he is with his girlfriend visiting her parents. They fly home today. Well done losing 20lbs already. I know it isn't easy, especially over the festive season. Hope you manage to get your operation soon. Happy 500th WOYWW. Sarah #12

  3. HI Dolores, you have done really well with the weight loss. Totally agree it's SOOO much easier to put it on than take it off! But you'll get there, just believe. Happy New Year, Hugs, Shaz #5 X

  4. I am so pleased to se you here - missed you blogging. Hope you visit us every Wednesday from now on even if your desk is empty - just call in.
    Good luck with the knee and the weight loss - you can do it - I lost weight and my heart condition improved so it is well worth it - just change your eating habits - after all the festivities of course.
    Happy New Year to you and Alan.
    Hugs, Neet xx 4

  5. Happy Happy New Year to you too, Dolores! It is always great to see an "old timer" back sharing a desk! Helen #2

  6. Hi Dolores. I wish you a very happy and blessed New year. Your desk looks really tidy to me!! You have done so well on the weight loss - that's brilliant - I do agree it is so very hard to lose it, I really struggle! All the very best - and I do so hope we might see you at the crop in June...
    Take care. God bless.

  7. Hi Delores, so good to see you again and pray lol goes well for 2019. I’m struggling with weight too, and had lost 21kg but put some back on so trying to get it off again.
    Easier to focus now all Christmas New year goodies away.
    Sounds like you did the same as me for Christmas. I was unwell leading up to it so was a scramble here too.
    Prayer hugs for every blessing of LORD in 2019.
    Happy belated WOYWW #500.

  8. Oh darling girl, happy New Year to you. I’m back on the diet wagon too, so you are not alone. It will be so worth it too, you’ll feel so much better x my father in law had similar knee problems and after held lost the weight , he only needed one operations, the weight bearing on the other one was causing the problem. It gave him his life back, I must say. It must be lovely to get home for Christmas. 80 cards, crikey, I think that would have used up my years card making mojo, I seem to have done much more scrapbooking this year. It will be lovely to see you blog a and when you can, funny how life takes us away for big chunks of time.

  9. Hi Delores, just popped back to Julia's to check I'd not missed anyone and here you are! Happy New Year, Angela x16x
