WOYWW, 19 th October 2011, I have never missed so many WOYWW!

Hi my dear bloggy friends!

This is a late post but I decided I will post today no matter what! I have been away for two reasons: I have a very bad knee injury and can't sit at the computer, the second reason is that my wifi went wrong and although I have a laptop and could be posting from bed - I couldn't because I had no wifi! The unfortunate thing was also that my daughter and her boyfriend were on holiday and I had no one who could fix my wifi! Last week I started with physiotherapy and although I can at least walk now (with crutches of course) I am still in a lot of pain and it looks like I will have to go back to the doctor and have it looked at again!
I don't want this post to be all doom and gloom so I have a few things to show you! Although I can't do much I try to keep myself busy all the time....
For the first week I was laying in bed mostly and I thought I should do some drawing - I think I have finally started to get this face drawing....here are a couple examples......

I don't know why the pictures are so blue - it was done on white paper....

The ones above are more realistic whereas the ones bellow are more fantasy....

Next thing I wanted to show you is my first ever "mixed media" canvas ( no I have never done anything on canvas in my life) You have to try things don't you?? Suzi Blu brought out these witchy kits but you can only buy them in the States so I decided to make my own little witch - my big mistake was making it on a very small canvas - you learn as you go - it is much harder to draw something very small - especially if you are a
beginner like me but I did it and I am proud of myself ( I love the little broom I made of a kebab stick, rafia and bit of wire!)

I also made a birthday card.......
and last but not least big news!!!!!! Over the weekend my DBF came from England and my daughter and her boyfriend came for a visit so I organised them all to put up a shelve and a rail in my little room and here are the results - with a lot of struggle I tidied up this morning....I HAVE LOADS OF SPACE TO WORK ON MY DESK!!!! YIPEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

All my paints, watercolors, pencils, pastels, mediums, stamps (except the wooden ones) are all there - also I selection of Martha Stewart punches... have a closer look...

and finally my desk .....it is empty at the moment - but I finally have room to craft.....lots of room....

So there that is the crafty bit......here is a photo of my four legs....

and as you all know this year colorful tapes are the in thing.....I had tapes on my knee over the weekend, I chose red .....I am always into fashion ha, ha.....

I am finished now - I know it is a long post but I haven't been on here for 3 weeks so give me a break!!!
Lots and lots of hugs to you all my dear friends!


  1. So sorry to hear you have problems with your legs and I hope they get better soon. I love your room though, not sure how you tidied it up so well on crutches... Had some bad news myself (details are on my blog) but I am getting through it.... The card is fabulous by the way!

  2. Najprej naj ti zaželim, da bolečine čimprej minejo in boš spet lahko vsaj ustvarjala, če že ne normalno funkcionirala.
    Ikeini izdelki so super za pospravljanje ustvarjalnih pripomočkov, tudi pri meni dobro služijo.
    Lepo, da nadaljuješ s slikanjem. Mene sprošča in zamoti :)

  3. Oh bless you. I really hope your knee improves very soon.
    Big healing hugs,
    A x

  4. Joj to pa ni dobro, želim ti hitro okrevanje in naj bolečine minejo.
    Vesela sem tvoje objave, saj sem jih že pogrešala. Ljubka čarovnička in metla :)), ta je super.
    Veliko novega prostora za shranjevanje si pridobila. Poličk je vedno premalo :)).
    Vse dobro ti želim. Pozdravček

  5. You poor girl, being laid up like that. You must have been so frustrated too, and I have no idea how you managed to tidy up like that. Hope you are soon skipping about, and get your wifi back too. Glad to see you back again. xxx

  6. I was getting worried about you and it seems rightly so! I do hope you get your leg better very soon but it's good that you have been so creative and productive. I love your artwork and your home looks fabulous too.
    It would be great if we can Skype on Friday evening and time after 7pm English time as I'll be home alone and free to chat. Look forward to seeing you....Take care,
    Love JoZarty x

  7. What on earth did you do to your knee?? Were you playing in the Rugby World Cup or something? The red tape, while it is very funky, hopefully will be doing its stuff and helping your knee to improve very quickly. And hooray for family and friends who have sorted out your shelving and workspace - it looks great :)
    Hugs, LLJ #40 xx

  8. funky knee strapping,

    it is most odd to be talking to you and commenting on the blog...

  9. Is it not the way ...to be incompasitated when the person you most need is not around. Looks like you have filled your time very productively ...love the eye sketches and the canvas. Hope you are fit and well soon.xx

  10. Ouch! wonderful workspace...gotta love your colors and home decor. thanks for the peek and sharing.

    xoxo Marjo

  11. I do hope your knee is getting better. How awful for you! Those faces are looking good. And the shelving looks very useful! Lovely to have extra storage, isn't it! Thanks for visiting me for WOYWW.

  12. Great to see (half) of you last night. Let's have another go on Friday to see if we can get a better connection, but it was fun chatting with Donna at the same time even if we couldn't see each other.
    Have a few pieces of good weight ( 2 sided if possible) scrapbook paper, scissors, pencil and ruler, ready and I'll show you an easy project. It will be fun!
    Love Jo x

  13. You poor girl. Not good having a bad knee, I know because my DH suffered for 2 years. Once you are sorted though, you will be back to skipping around your wonderful craft space. Take care.
    Hugs Joanne xx

  14. Glad to see you back on WOYWW! I have total desk envy with all of the stuff that you cleaned up! It looks FABULOUS! Hope that you have enjoyed all of visitors and that you continue to get better! -Amanda

  15. Bridget #28 sorry to hear about your knee but love the colour of your knee tape and desk, they match hahaha

  16. I am sorry about your knee. I understand the invalid thing too. I have Spinal problems which affect my legs.Your workspace looks great and so does your art.
