I hope you all had a good week and did a lot of crafting ! That did not happen in my case BUT I did start sorting out my boxes. I had a box full of A4 tonic studio card-stock and I am telling you I have found that I have every color imaginable, so my files where I had a few are now full! I think there is enough there for the rest of my crafty life! Also I put away all the Christmas stamps and dies which I didn't use much as I didn't send any cards although I did make a few and they will be used next year! I also sorted out some Valentines day stamps and dies and also some Easter ones.
Now to my desk! Another rather bad photo! My camera is somewhere - I don't know exactly where so I am using my phone camera - as my phone is on its last knocking ( I am deciding to buy a new one but I haven't decided yet) the photos are not very good - sorry!
As you can see I pulled out some Penny Black stamps with a Valentine's Day theme: I did stamp them but haven't colored them yet. Also there are some new dies from Penny Black (resolution to not buy anything went out the window) I found a heart stencil from Simon says stamp so I have a few Valentines day things ready to make things. Although my dear Alan has passed away and I can't make a card for him anymore I will give some cards to friends who don't have partners but are happy to get a Valentines day card!
I hope I will have some cards to show next week when I sort my desk out so that I at least can put a A2 card on there! To write this post I had to prop my keyboard on top of that pile of things you see on the photo!
I want to share a memory with you ... Whenever I went to craft shows like Ally Pally Alan would come with me and while I was pottering around he would patiently wait for me. Here is a photo of him at Ally Pally happily waiting for me - He was such a nice man! It was 6 months since he passed away and I decided to only think of happy memories.
Lots of love and hugs to all have a lovely week - enjoy crafting as it is still cold and our hobby is the best thing to do on a cold winters night!

That’s just how I remember Alan from the Crops! Happy to chat but also to sit and read or something, such a gentleman. I’m happy you’re crafting as I genuinely think it helps to keep your hands busy when your brain is full.ReplyDelete
