WOYWW #196 - Ribbons

Oh I can't believe it, the first time in ages that I haven't prepared my WOYWW post for midnight! With all my ailments lately I have been left quite rundown and finding crafting difficult. So here's my desk just before 9am with some of the things I have done this week.



I did manage to finish off my A to Z of Me Album and with my Craft Barn prize I bought the little metal "Tink the Angel" charm for the cover. I also added all the ribbons. I took a photo a while ago of the sunshine hitting my ribbon collection on my jailor's ring, thought you might like to see that too.



















My latest "Craft Barn - Alpha Challenge" page on "M" for Mayday can be seen better here.

Lastly one of the cards is for Mothering Sunday which for us in the UK is the mid-Sunday of Lent - so next Sunday 10th March. I am currently trying to use up pre-made cards which have been sitting in my card box for a while now. This decoupage was one of the first I ever tried, I have added the sentiment from my trusty typewriter and some liquid pearl accents too.


So come on down to the mega desk hop we call WOYWW and see the delights of craft desks all over the world. The sheet in the foreground is where I mark off all who have visited me and vice versa so I don't get mixed up, but I definitely need numbers in comments especially as I am struggling at the moment. Thanks and HUGS all round.

We really like the idea of an A to z journal, we've added it to our ever growing to do list. It's a good idea to use your already made cards, we're trying to do the same with toppers at the moment.

Waving hello from the bears @#80 this week

Hi BJ - hope you're feeling properly better soon, was at the docs myself this morning and didn't feel like doing anything much when I got back but I had to finish Mum's card - so I plodded up to my craft room and got to work - feeling a bit more like it after my craft therapy! Gorgeous card and I love your little Tink. MM x #99

Elizabeth said...

Hi BJ, sorry you're still feeling a bit grim - hope things improve soon. Love the shot of your ribbons and the bows on your journal - lovely. The Mother's Day card is beautiful too and your typewritten greeting is perfect ... I can't wait for my typewriter to come back from servicing, I can see it is going to be so useful. Hope you've had a good WOYWW. Elizabeth x #26

We've been poorly together! I finally feel better today after a week and a half. Your Mothers Day card is exquisite, so utterly charming. I am feeling the loss of my mum big time at the moment......

Sorry you haven't been feeling well lately. I hope you get 200% better very soon! :) And even if it was one of your first cards it is still a very lovely card, unlike my earliest cards!

You've gotten that much done and you're under the weather? I don't get that much done when I'm full of energy. LOL Your card is beautiful. Whoever receives that card is receiving a work of art. April #145

Hi BJ - thanks for explaining about Mother's Day in the UK...I was thinking you all were really ahead of things; it's the second weekend in May in the states! I want to encourage you to at least get the Dylusions white spray if you like playing with mists and sprays. It is amazing. I thought it sounded cool, but it way exceeds my expectations. If you have a couple of layers of color down and then spray the white through a stencil it creates totally new colors....I have lots more to explore with it....hope you are feeling better, really better soon.
