A very Happy New Year to all my Crafty friends. I hope your Christmas festivities were very happy ones and Santa brought you all that you wished for and that 2013 has started well.
We had a lovely time with lots of delicious food and drink, generous presents and precious family time. I have done no crafting whatsoever and am now raring to go again. Trouble is the state of my craft room. I feel ashamed to show you but as it's WOYWW then here it is on all is disgraceful glory.
I hope that by the end of today some order will have been restored. We had a big sort out of DD's bedroom yesterday and she inherited the easy chair that had become a dumping ground in my craft room and took up valuable storage space. I had to move lots of things out so we could get it through the narrow doorway and just pushed everything back in last night and closed the door. There are also lovely Christmas presents waiting to find a new home. I think I will take the opportunity to have a big sort out and tidy up.
Before I go and make a start you might remember the oval mirror that was on it's way to becoming my MIL's Christmas present last time I joined in WOYWW and just to round things off here is the end result. She was delighted with it and we had a good laugh when I told her the story.
If you want to start off the New Year in some lovely company then there is no better way than joining in the biggest weekly desk snoop in the World so pop over to see our Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you at a desk near you very soon.
I am married with one beautiful daughter and 2 crafty cats and we live in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.
I started scrapbooking several years ago and quickly became totally hooked. Being a keen photographer they fit together perfectly.
I have always crafted in some way, starting with cross stitch and card making and now enjoy stamping and generally messing about with inks, sprays and paints and am very honoured to be an Inkoid designing for Sheena Douglass.
My other all consuming passion is gardening, no wonder I never get very much housework done!
Thank you for stopping by. Please feel free to have a coffee and a browse while you're here. I hope some of my pottering provides you with a bit of inspiration, if so I would love you to leave me a comment so that I can come and see what you are up to. Please be kind enough not to copy or reproduce anything on my site for submission to competitions or publications.
