WOYWW and A Lovely Award

Afternoon lovely Crafters. Blimey, is it Wednesday again!! These weeks are just flying. I have spent the morning making pom pom spiders with my lovely class of 7 year olds. I did wonder when the teacher suggested them whether the kids would get bored winding wool, but how wrong could I be, they absolutely love it and are so thrilled with their finished spiders. We still have many to make but they are looking great hanging from the classroom ceiling.

If it's Wednesday , it must be WOYWW again. Only two weeks to go to the 2nd Anniversary and my Pif is finished and ready to go so I'm a relieved bunny this week. If you're wondering what on earth I'm talking about, then pop over to see the lovely Julia and she will explain all.

I'm in the middle of a bit of Paint Fusion at the minute. I had the idea of trying to represent a cornfield full of Poppies and Daisies. It's still a work in progress but I'll share it with you when it's finished.

I also have a photo printed off ready to do a LO when I've finished painting and the Scrapbook mag is open ready to provide some inspiration.

I was also thrilled this week to receive this lovely award from the very talented and inspirational Emma. If you haven't come across her blog than it's definitely worth a look, she is on the Clarity Design Team and does some fantastic work with Barbara's superb stamps and is a very supportive blogging buddy.

I am supposed to tell you seven interesting facts about myself which is really difficult but here are some that I've come up with.

1- I love my bed and hate getting up in the morning so we are always rushing about to get out of the house in time.

2- I have a button phobia so my poor husband has to sew his own on and I will never wear anything with them on, apart from jeans or trousers.

3- I was an Insurance Underwriter in a previous life.

4- I was born in Nottingham so am not a true Yorkshire woman.

5- I couldn't live without my garden and spend as much money on plants as I do on craft stash, forget shoes and handbags!!!

6-I am addicted to Neighbours and can't miss an episode, sad I know.

7- I feel truly blessed to be apart of this wonderful Crafty Blogging Community and treasure all the friends I have made through it.

I can never choose who to pass awards onto as you are all worthy, so if you haven't already received this one, please feel free to help yourself.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week is going well so far. It's still chilly and windy here but there is promise of some better weather at the weekend, here's hoping.

Such an interesting post as usual Lisa thanks so much for sharing all your life info; and so agree with number one there ... hate mornings too - am not a morning person that is why the tv is off and am in here at night on the computer either that or crafting and yes so agree with your spending habits too mine are the same thought must admit of late the garden is a poor second. Happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x
