WOYWW, Getting ready for the crop in Wales! YIPEEEE!

Hello dear bloggy friends!

I have traveled over all of Europe over the last week or so! I am now back in England and so busy with various things I wonder wouldn't it be better to just have stayed at home! šŸ˜‰  But here I am and well it is Wednesday and time for the big gathering at the Stamping Ground where Julia is the queen of the snooping crowd! And let me tell you this snooping crowd is meeting this weekend in Wales in Llandudno courtesy of Margaret at Glitterandglue! Oh I am sooo looking forward to it! Yippeee!!
Enough of  all that excitement lets get up to the snooping business! This week my desk, actually my whole craft room is in such a mess - it is not just me doing stuff on the desk, but it is stuff I brought from home all on the desk on the floor, wherever there is space...have a look!


As you can see there is stuff everywhere - behind the chair is my brand new Janome Skyline 3 sewing machine ! On the desk are stamps, acrylic paints, pens, scissors and well I think about everything a crafter would need! But as you can see I have about 3 Atcs space to do stuff on my desk! How can that be??? Huh!
I will show you just 2 of my atcs as they should be a surprise for the ladies attending the crop....




I am just preparing dinner so I will finish this! Anybody going to the crop - I look forward to seeing you there we will be traveling to Wales on Friday and staying there till Monday! 
Love and hugs to all you amazing deskers and crafters!

WOYWW, A long time away!

Hello my dear bloggy friends!

I have been away for such a long time ! I looked when I last posted and it was 3 months ago! I couldn't believe it! I must admit I have had a very busy year - well summer but when I look back it seems I haven't done much! I am in Slovenia at the moment but I will soon be traveling back to England!
I don't want to bore you with all the details but I have done some improvements to my flat here, I had visitors from England ( my DBFs children and grandchildren) for which I had to prepare and then we took them all around Slovenia with a couch! It was all on me to organize it! I also stayed with my mom for a week , met up with lots of friends and time just flies - 2 months went so fast!
On the crafty side of things I have made a few cards and journal pages which I will show, but first lets have a look at my desk! - I have a new computer so there is a bit of a change...the computer now sits on top of my desk - before it was under the desk....


What you see on my desk is my altered book - art journal, a bunch of oxide inks and all sorts of crafty stuff! This desk is a bit more crowded then the one in England but I love that I have all my stuff so close and handy!

Here are a few photos of things I have done over the summer!

Cards:






I have this art journal - altered book I always make a page or two when I am here at home - I managed to make 3 this summer!

This is my altered book...
 This page is ...under the sea - got inspired when I was at the seaside...



This one is a floral one - I just can't help it I love flowers...

 This is something different for me - I made a page with pictures of women - no I didn't draw them - I am not that good but  I bought a fabric that had these faces on it and this page just came to my mind! I did a lot to the background but you can't see much of it . Because the pictures are on fabric they give some nice texture to the page!


and an ATC

So that was all my summer crafting - well there was more cards but I forgot to take photos of them! Huh! How many times does that happen? 
Anyway I will be back in England soon and I am looking forward to the WOYWW Wales crop! We have booked Warners in a place a can not pronounce and I just can't wait to see all my lovely WOYWW crafty friends!
Love and hugs to all of you,
