WOYWW, 2 cards and a bit of knitting...

Hello my dear friends!

It is another Wednesday when we wizz around blogs and look at what people have been doing and what their messy or tidy desks are showing or hiding! We all congregate at  the Stamping ground where our leader Julia presides...
Anyway going back to last week lots of you thought it was amazing that I moved with only 2 cases. Well to be honest I will still be living some of the time in Slovenia. I didn't take all of my crafty stuff with me because when I go back every now and again I will need some there so I am having stuff here and there - he, he that is why I need to buy new crafty stuff here and also I need to buy new clothes here - isn't that fun ????? 
Just so you know! :-)
Now it is time to get back to our usual business!First up my really messy desk (actually the table in the lounge).....

As you can see there is a big mess of pottage there - 2 cups - one for tea, one for water for water coloring. lots of baby wipes as I can't stand dirty stamps and a card on the side there which I will show in detail in a moment....also new docrafts markers - they were the cheapest I could get and they will do for coloring if I need to.....I don't want to buy the copics....I have them in Slovenia but I don't use them that much as I am a not very good at coloring anyway....
So here is a card I made this morning - I am into these rainbow colors at the moment and hearts are the theme up to Valentine's day! I used dies from Papertray ink which I love as they are  so funky and used foil paper because it seems to be in fashion at the moment....the stitched hearts are a Lil' Inker die and the sentiment is from Altenew.

My next card I made for mom a few days ago - she was quite sad that I went to England but as I call her every day and send her stuff every now and again she seems happy now. The sentiment says "Spring will come..." I guess we all wish for spring....the dies and stamps are from Clearly Besotted stamps...oh yes and the bunny is from Lawn Fawn....The background is just a bit of water coloring.....

And can you believe I started knitting.....I am not sure what yet but it is a start :-)

That is it for today....I will see you soon - I will be around blogs later as our friends are  coming to visit and I will be tied up most of the day!

Have a lovely week, enjoy Valentine's day!
Lots of hugs to everybody

  9. Meni bi se verjetno zgodilo, da bi čopič pomočla v čaj :))) Ja, vedno pridejo prav izgovori za nove nakupe :) Uzivaj in lepo se imejte z obiski. Te mavricne barve pa so tako vesele.

  10. Jo will have you crocheting before long so you need to have lots of wool handy. Great colours you are using at the moment in your knitting.
    How nice to have the flat still in Slovenia, that means you can go back and forth as you wish, and of course, see your mum and daughter.
    Hope you enjoy England living - and crafting shops/shows etc!
    Hugs, Neet 28 xx
