woyww 175

Another Wednesday and I'm still here, well actually, feeling like a visitor at the moment, as we are off back to the caravan this afternoon! Came home to bring my grandchildren back on Monday, made a couple of visits to a relative in hospital, had my blood test and now we can go again!
Thanks to Julia I was able to snoop at a fair few desks last week, although not as many as I would have liked! Here's a glimpse at what I've been up to since we got back!
As you can see I'm still in the process of mounting stamps(bottom left)I've prepared a few more journal pages-one of which you can see here(I don't have many sprays at the caravan - and don't like to take them!)Top right of the piccy you can see my little box of bits and pieces that I use for printing, stencilling etc - this includes such random items as a piece of netting, bottoms cut from plastic biscuit holders, bottle tops and of course several sizes of bubble wrap! Oh! and underneath that a plastic box with newly mounted stamps - thank you pound shop!
I've just realised how messy this looks and you can see where I experimented with some ink and the little tube of yellow net(left behind by a work man) just to the left of my purple mat.
Thank you for your comments last week, I'm having difficulties at the moment, so although I was able to leave comments on some of your blogs I couldn't everywhere - you see my phone, which THE MAN said would connect with our lap top isn't playing ball so I can only use my phone and it doesn't always want to play either and as for posting a blog, well, I can do a title but it won't let me do much else as I can't see what I'm putting in and all it wants to do it put on a photo of my hubby(lovely though he is)
Until next time, thanks for looking, Chris

Messy is good! At least, that's what I tell myself! Sorry to hear your phone is still causing problems x

My table is a dumping ground today - that's why my post is just photos of things I have been up to. Must get in that room and blitz it but I know I will forget where I hide everything! x Jo

Lovely to see you on here again and my you are busy. Glad you are using the caravan so much, good to get away and refresh. It was lovely to meet up with you the other week. Nice looking journal page and love that mat.
Hugs, Neet xx 29 (I wish!)

I love the way us crafters can utilise almost anything for our art. We have a bag of old cereal boxes waiting to be used for stencils in our stash

Thanks for visiting the bears today.

Fabulous crafty bits and pieces - love your recycling collection of potential!! Hope the weather's being kind to you in the caravan, and interested to know what you do take (if not the sprays). I'm about to have to work out a minimal craft stash to take away with me as I'll be working away from home for three weeks... trying to work out what to pack!! Thanks so much for stopping by, and happy WOYWW!

I don't think I would call it so much messy as creative. Lots of fun things to see! I like trying to reuse things also and sometimes I am surprized at what I create. Like the start to the journal page. Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Have fun on you trip. Have a great week. Vickie #41

Loving your creative space, it doesn't look messy at all to me, in fact quite tidy.....you asked if I was a Warrington girl, alas no, I live in South Cheshire at the Peak District end but sometimes go to Warrington Ikea. Thanks for stopping by. Anne x #57

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Thanks so much for letting me know about your travelling stash! Look forward to seeing more on Monday... I've signed up as a follower - not only so I don't miss it, but because I love what I've seen scrolling through your posts - beautiful journalling!

Having known you for a while now I can honestly say that you have come on in leaps and bounds. A fab desk, fab projects and fab plans. As for your phone - sounds a bit like mine which went back for repair this week and came back in a right old mess. Getting an i-phone next so I can blog on the go.
Hugs Joanne xx

I have just finished unmounting all my stamps. I totally detested the adhesive mounting foam and never got a good impression anyway. Now I just mount them temporarily om Clarity mounts with Crafters Companion temporary spray, and get perfect images. Hope you are enjoying your time at your caravan. Is is a static or a tourer? We have a tourer which we love, especially to take the dogs away with us. have a good week. xx Maggie #88

PS forgot to say thank you for your visit this week. I still have not found my labels, but hopefully they will emerge soon. xx Maggie #88

I decided to mount all my un mounted stamps once! Never again! LOL

Have a great trip - always good to get some of the messy background making done - so adding the final parts is a relatively mess free fun activity ! Ali #47

I like what you are doing with that journal page! And your Cuttlebug is very handy, I notice. I wouldn't want to leave my Cuttlebug at home! Happy late WOYWW and thanks for visiting!

Joynana said...

Hello Chris, thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I am very busy right now rushing around trying to get ready for my vacation and the craft show that I will be at the week after vacation is over. So life is like a tornado right now. But, I am loving it. I had a couple of moments to come out and visit a few more blogs. Your desk looks very busy. Would love to see the journal page when it is finished. #9

That sucks about not being able to use the phone fully to do online posting etc, the joys of technology. But caravanning is awesome, wish we owned one, have to settle for a tent for our next holiday lol

Messy is really good in your own space but I can see why you wouldn't want to create too much mess in the caravan. Hope the hospital visits went well. My sock isn't a complicated pattern, actually, there's no pattern at all, it's just the wool doing all the work for me. It's dyed in a special way to look like a jacquard print. Enjoy your time in the caravan.

Hugs
