About Me

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 #233 - Cards & Decopatch

Not felt like much this week after last week's Wisdom Tooth Extraction. Still quite sore.

On my desk, I have just taken delivery of my décopatch order. They are always so prompt, a delightful on-line store I must say.

One thing I noticed is that all the items to décopatch are made in the Phillipines so helping their economy each time I buy.

The pink tags are from a Magazine Freebie, yes sucked in again, but they came with a set of 3 nesting tag dies so who could resist. The magazine - Papercraft Essentials Issue 100.

I did manage to stick and finish off my 3 quilling cards but had no mind to make any more quilling items.

I did make some other cards, but they were more out of necessity than anything else.

First a card for my son's friend's 14th birthday. I cheated a little and copied my son's of last year as they play the same computer games.

Next up a couple of "New Home"cards. One for the UKPC craft club swap and the other for one of the members who was moving. Oh I guess you'll all know by now as she is a WOYWW lady too. Hopefully she'll be settled enough to join in this week - Hi Elizabeth!

So that's me folks, pop along to Julia's "new look" blog for links to desks around the world.

Love the quilling cards! That's one area of paper crafting that I decided I didn't need to get involved in. You have so many neat little things tucked amongst your desk. Happy playing!

Julia Dunnit said...

aw poor you, wisdom teeth and removal of is a bugger..don't suffer gal, keep taking the paracetamol!! I understand about the quilling, but have to say you've made a fab job, particularly like the design of the light bulbs.

I hope you feel brighter soon.... Mine was really bad when I had it taken out !

Hi BJ, lovely post - your desk looks ready for lots of crafting even if you are still getting over your wisdom tooth extraction. Hope the soreness goes soon. Quilling ... never been tempted to try this as it seems quite fiddly but your cards are lovely ... the Christmas tree is super. Love the New Home card - the sentiment inside is so appropriate and cheered me up immensely when I read it. Have a great week, Elizabeth (breaking from unpacking crafty stash) x #43
