I'm going to tell you about it if you want to hang around after I've shown you what's on my desk, because after all that's why Julia started this Desk watching thingy!!!You can find out more by checking out Julia's blog!
So...guess where I am?
Just unpacked these - my pencil case, paper cutter, paper, stamps and three year books that MUST be finished soon!
Just in case you were wondering what I did with those papers last week - they were turned into atc's for friends!
Did I mention I'm going through a flowery phase?!!
Now, I don't mind if you leave now as I know time is precious, but I did say that I would explain why this last week has been so busy!
Thursday - hair cut - at last! My son's ex partner cuts my hair and we hadn't been able to set a date so I was beginning to look somewhat dishevelled!
Friday - A fabulous Andy Skinner Gelli Plate workshop - fortunately sitting next to my friend Pat who is a bit of an expert! Sadly not much time for chatting!
Saturday - A trip to Happy Stampers at Port Sunlight with another friend - a great day and much chatting, meeting up with old friends and spending far too much money!
Sunday - A barbecue at my youngest son's house in honour of my eldest son's birthday. Unfortunately the weather forced us indoors but my sons homemade burgers were still delicious!
|My son's birthday card - there is a similar themed canvas - sadly not yet finished!|
Monday - a real adventure day - ha! ha! A quick run into town saw me sprawling in the doorway of my favourite art supply shop, very embarrassing! I missed the little step! They didn't even have what I wanted in stock either! However after lunch my foot and knee were really hurting and we thought a trip to A and E would be a good idea - fortunately nothing broken!
|Did this while I was waiting!|
Tuesday - had intended meeting friends for coffee but ended up with them coming to me(bearing cakes - Thanks you girls!!)
Can I finally add a sad and rather disgusting tale - my lovely friend Lindsay Mason was at Happy Stampers demonstrating using her lovely Doo Lally Pip stamps. While she was at lunch with Sarah and I someone(a crafter obviously)took some of her sample tags and a canvas! If anyone sees these samples - Lindsay did not give them away they were stolen - not only that, they were needed for deadlines that Lindsay has been working for!! I guess I'm just naive, I though we crafters respected the time taken to produce work - obviously this person was not a REAL crafter!!
If you've got to the end of this epic thanks for staying!
Here's to a quieter week, Chrisx
