Morning dear WOYWWer's. Sorry I've been absent for a couple of weeks. Firstly it was half term and we were out and about and then last week I was locked away with lots of DT work but I'm free now and glad to be back amongst you all again, especially as it's such a  special day being Armistice Day. I carry a poppy with me all year round on my key ring. I think it's important to remember all the time, not just once a year, but I always feel 11th November is a special day.

Well, here's my desk this morning.

Not very interesting really.  I'm prepping for my Craft Club on Thursday night. This week we are making a box card and I am in the middle of cutting all the bits out and putting them in packs. It makes it easier on the night and hopefully means everyone has enough time to complete their project, although we often over run our two hours, perhaps we need to do more crafting and less chatting!!!!

This is what they should send up with.

While I've been off doing other things I was truly surprised and delighted to be the winner of LLJ's old bag draw and here it is in all it's glory.

I love it and it's going to be very useful to put all my shopping in now that we don't get bags with any shopping any more. I've always taken bags food shopping but I hadn't realised that one carrier is not enough when clothes shopping, lol.

Thanks so much Jan, you are very kind.

Well, that's me this week. If you want to share your desk with us then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Happy a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Oh what a wonderful box card, I find it fascinating how you all make up the kits for the classes. Must take you ages!! Take care Zo xx 31

Oh that's such a cute bag! I am a proud owner of a Jan bag and use it for shopping and craft supplies all the time. It's funny you mentioned Downton Abbey, because I was missing it so much the other day I started posting Downton photos from their Facebook page! At least when it comes on in January, I'll have something to look forward to in the middle of winter and after the holidays! Have a great week. Ooh, I love your green scoreboard too. Sandy Leigh #45

Lucky you, that's a gorgeous bag and I am sure you will enjoy using it. Like you I like to leave the new stash out for a while. I have a bad habit with new stuff of forgetting I have it if I pack it away too soon, I know it's silly but there you go Lol! Have a great woyww and happy crafting, Angela x 21

Hi Lisa, so pleased that you haven't told that you'd been busy in garden or I would have had to send the men in white coats round!?
Card looks interesting, pity you are not nearer as I have never made a shaker card and would have loved to learn how, we have a local Craft club every 3rd Thursday and I really enjoy it.
Take care.

Congratulations on winning Jan's bag.It's a beauty.
I love your box card that you are preparing for the workshop. It looks easy enough and I have that butterfly die. I might have a go at that.
I also like that green scoring mat (or whatever it is called). I've been looking on the internet for a scoring tool and I looked at things going for £40 or more. Yours looks a lot simpler (and cheaper).
Thanks for visiting me earlier.
Have a great week,

Ah lucky you on the bag draw! A good one too. Love that shadow box card. It's fab! Much classier than a plastic carrier bag LOL!

late ... again!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Oh, you're so welcome! I'm glad you like it - may it give you many happy hours of shopping :-)

Gorgeous card and well done for winning the beautiful LLJ bag. Sounds like you have been busy and don't the weeks just fly by. I have given no thought to Xmas cards ... too busy painting :) Sandra de @20
