About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

WOYWW #232 - Wisdom

Bit in the wars today as I had a Wisdom Tooth out yesterday - ouch. Took him 3 goes and 3 injections but eventually it came out - unfortunately they threw it away :(

I even missed my son's investiture at Explorers last night as I felt so horrid, have more badges to sew on now though.

Anyway here's my desk with the fallout from Monday's Craft Club where we did Christmas Quilling. I didn't manage to get round to sticking any on cards but did lay them out.

I also dug out my own quilling stash now I am in the mood - so to speak.

Sad news is that this club is finishing with next month's session which is a big shame as I really enjoyed it and it is close to me and in the daytime. Oh well it was good whilst it lasted.

Also on my you'll spot my Timmy Tag for the month, wasn't taken by the technique this month but the finished tag is growing on me.

There's my November zine for 12 months in view, along with the pocket and tag. Love the poppies.

Over on my dressing table is my knitting basket now with SIX sheep, also my Alpha Challenge page for "Q" and Quarter Days. You'll spot last years Attitude of Gratitude journal above too.

Think that is me for this week, pop over to Julia's for more WOYWW desk hopping.

Hi there. Just popping my head round the door to say hi. It's always a pity when something you have enjoyed finishes. You have been busy with lots of different projects!
Thanks for the peek into your creative world today.
Hope you have a good week too.

Oh! You poor love! the Dentist at any time is not good but wisdom teeth .....
When you're recovered go treat yourself, even if it's just another ball of wool, you deserve something good to look forward to....

Urrggh! Wisdom tooth extractions - horrid! You have my sympathies on this one, it really does leave one feeling poorly. Your quilling looks so beautiful. I have seen this technique, but have no idea how it is done! Take care of yourself. Hope you soon feel much, much better. Julie Ann xx #33

Ugg I hate the dentist may you heal up quickly :)
beautiful quilled tree you made

Heavens, you've been busy - love the Tim tag, and the November zine. Sorry you had a hard time with the tooth, better out than in though! Enjoy the rest of the week. Helen 17

Happy WOYWW. What a wonderful selection of crafty projects. I have a dental phobia and also local anaesthetic does not work anymore, so I have a general anaesthetic for anything more than a clean or check up. Very expensive! Ali x #73

Lovely busy desk, BJ. Like the quilling light bulbs!! Great fun. Trust you are feeling better now - a few days after having the tooth out - ouch, indeed!! Sad to miss out on the investiture, though! - it only happens the once - hope someone was able to go in your place and tell you all about it.

Such a wonderful array of projects BJ. I hope you are feeling a bit better after having your tooth pulled. They can be such a pain for some and others have no issues with them. I've never had the patience for quilling but have to say your tree is fabulous. I hope you can find another crafting group, the crafting and conversation is wonderful therapy isn't it?. Have a great week! Danie #31
