A hello and big hug to all of you! It is a virtual hug so don't worry about the virus! I have been silent for almost a year and now I have finally got back the courage and will to write and post a blog! These are weird times and I have been through a lot this year. Still I am alive and well, so is my partner Alan. I have been swimming almost every day until this virus came along and just as I should have finally got my knee operation it was cancelled thanks to COVID 19! And who knows when I will get it now. Hay ho, that is life. I don't want to complain as hearing about all the deaths and people suffering every day you would be really ungrateful as you are still healthy and sitting in your craft room making cards or whatever takes your fancy!So coming to the point of crafting and WOYWW I must say although I haven't been blogging a lot has been going on in my craftroom! I have made and am still making lots of cards - made a few changes to my craft room and although I have tons of crafty stuff I am still buying new things - it is a disease I just can't stop myself!
So lets first have a look at my desk .....
As you can see on the first and second photo I have bought this MDF storage system for my distress ink pads and reinkers - I actually colored them with distress oxide sprays and then filled them up with all my inkpads sorted by color. Proud of that achivement..
Here are a few of the cards I have made as of lately.....various techniques using inlays, stencils, die cuts and watercolors. I am trying to experiment with everything.
Queen Julia has given us for our 11th anniversary (although being away for a year am I still on 10?!?) and I think I have a few projects in various envelopes, bags and boxes that need finishing so I think I will have a go at it!
I am really happy to be back in the community of my lovely crafty friends! I will try to visit all your desks and say hello! I just got a cup of tea on my desk from my Alan so I am ready to have a snoop around the desks!
Love and hugs to all, glad to be back!
