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, DĂ©copatch, 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 #234 - Ashburnham

Still not recovered fully from my wisdom tooth removal. Hampered slightly by having been on a weekend away last weekend, but it was with church and had been booked for nearly a year! My husband and son came too and we all had a good time at Ashburnham Place. It was cold but the sun shone and the grounds were magnificent in autumnal colours. My son and I did a scavenger hunt on the Saturday and he even won too which was great.

So to my desk, the 3 pipe cleaner stick people were made at the weekend in one of the worship sessions, the 3 pockets and tags are to go in my 12 months journal. I have finished off my November pages too.

I bought the coaster at the weekend and am going to try my hardest to live by its words.

I have also done my Alpha Challenge page for the Craft Barn, and the letter "S" for St Swithin's Day.

So yes another week of the WOYWW mega blog hop round the world of crafters. Have a good one.

Hope the tooth extraction is a thing of the past soon..... But I'm not surprised as I was the same!
Well you have been busy, looks like lots of crafting has been done!

So sorry to hear that you are still suffering with your tooth. These extractions can take ages to heal. I had an infection in mine and developed a swelling which my dentist told me was officially known as 'Hamster Face'. Your weekend sounds beautiful. Congratulations to your son and thank you for sharing all the lovely work on your desk. Julie Ann xx #55
