Morning everyone, or is it Afternoon. Anyway, I hope I find you well this Wednesday. Not sure what is happening with our weather this week. It was freezing yesterday but I've just been outside to stand up some blown over pots and it's really warm in the sunshine again today.

It's time to bare all with those WOYWWer's again and I've had a busy morning in my craft room with some DT work which is determined to cause me grief. Why is it that some projects just go together nicely and others are a struggle. I can't show it yet so you can see on my desk a card I'm making for a lovely girl by the name of Willow, don't you just love that name, the daughter of our good friends, who reaches the grand old age of 13 this week. It was also our 13th Wedding Anniversary last Monday so you can imagine the size of her Mum on our Wedding photos!!

I haven't got any stamps suitable for a teenager so decided to use some images from the Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons CD. I'm not a CD crafter usually but I love this one, it's so bright and cheerful.

The first shot is a daredevil one taken by standing on my stool so I thought I'd show you the other end of the table where my lovely promarker rack has pride of place with some lovely artwork from my Australian friend Shaz displayed on top. My heatgun is cooling from lots of action this morning, yes I know, highly dangerous stood on a pile of paper!!

My lovely old key came from Italy this year and has hooks. I haven't decided what to use it for yet but it's ideal for hanging up little canvases. The rest of the desk is just a mess, but it is organised mess if that's any excuse!!

I've shown you mine so let's see yours. Pop over to see Julia and find out what it's all about HERE.

Well, I need to go and make myself respectable and get up to school for some crafty fun with the children so I'll say Cheerio for now and thanks for stopping by.

That's a cute card! I love the way the flowers have alternately coloured petals - a small touch but lifts the whole effect!
Hugs, LLJ xx

Loving the card………..I think that’s a perfect image for a 13 year old and the colours are perfect too but the thing at caught my most on your desk this week is the moggie….I just love that!

Happy Crafting!

Hi Lisa, I'm late again! Love your desk with so much to spy on and I see that gorgeous little girl again hanging on your fab Italian key.
Thanks so much for sending the images and the card too!... the first card I make will go to a special little German girl!
I did thank you on my blog but haven't had a minute to write personally.
Great time here with Donna and workshop with Neet, and Leigh show , show prepping with Carol for Port Sunny etc.!!
Love Jo x

Hi Lisa. Sorry but I'm chuckling away here - visions of you risking life and limb wibble wobbling round on your stool to take an aerial view :) The things we get up to! Love that key too! Di xx

your card looks perfect! I like the look of that promarker rack too!

That does look like a lovely sunny day peeping through your window there! I hadn't thought about using some of the CDs I have but I bought some Promarkers finally and have been too scared to use them as yet! Maybe today... Thanks for the reminder about the CDs, might find more suitable stuff there.

MaggieC said...

Thanks for your visit and comment, Lisa. It is much appreciated. In my defence, I must tell you that the big bag of stuff fro recycling is the result of several weeks, and is full of tiny bits of paper that cannot be used for anything sensible, failed prints that I do not like and never will, cards that have gone irretrievably wrong, any plastics that can be recycled, used baby wipes, computer screen wipes. I have a separate box for printer ink pads to be recycled at Staples for money or in school to get them money. The nappy sack /poo bag is just for stuff that I know cannot yet be recycled in our area. Hope that explains the size of the bag.
