About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

WOYWW #243 - Busy (without even noticing)

I must say that doing WOYWW on a weekly basis gives me a chance to take stock of the week gone by and all I have achieved, and this week it seems to be more than I even noticed which is very pleasing indeed.

So exactly what did I do? The different items are highlighted so you can link to the original post if you want more detail.

1) The first half of my 52 weeks spread.

2) My DLP diary round-up for the 5 January prompts.
There is also my Timmy Tag die awaiting some die cutting for friends, and the Sensodyne toothpaste box awaiting decorating as it is just the right size for 6 Distress Markers - yes I only have 6!

3) The decorated envelope for my 12 months journal, in the background behind the tags.

4) And horrah - my Timmy Tag at last! A joint project as it is one of my 12 months Cotton Traders recycled tags for the January pocket.

I also finished up my other 2 scrap pages.

And the blue and green items you might wonder, well they are to make up a little house decoration for my Aunt's birthday on Saturday, so I must get a move on with that if I am going to post it tomorrow!

And finally, my much used Nexus 7 for dummies book - jolly handy.

Might have to leave my replies until later in the week, but if you comment and leave your number "I'll be there!" I always try my best to return the visit but some desks/links prove impossible, especially in the Google+ department. I'll do my best. Happy WOYWW everyone.

HI BJ ….and I thought I kept myself busy! WOW what an amazingly crafty week you have had. Love the Tim tag. I am hoping to get to mine today (not much of the month left to get it in on time) I haven't been WOYWW visiting for a while so I am looking forward to catching up with everyone. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 74 x

Oh I forgot to ask what the Google+ problem is. I have just linked my Blog to Google +. I hope that wasn't a bad decision. Helen x

Goodness, you get much more done in your week than I do, BJ. Your pages are great.

That's a neat idea to reflect back on what you've done. I was hoping to show what I'm working on one week and have it done by the next, but nope. I'm finding OTHER things to do instead. hee hee. You accomplished a lot of great things this past week!

So many projects to take a look at! Hubby bought himself a Nexus 7, loves it too. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #35 xx

Helen said...

Your comment makes sense now - you really have been busy!! Some great projects you've recapped on. Helen 9

Sharon Underwood said...

Looks like you have a lot going on! My desk always looks messy, even if I'm not in the midst of a project. I guess I need help! (I'm #105.)

Whoever said blue and green should never be seen was just plain wrong! I love that pic of all your bits gathered together...it would make a great jigsaw :-)

I was by earlier and thought for sure I left a comment. Apparently, all I did was copy your blog address, since I cite that you were one of two people (along with Dawn) who inspired me to join the Craft Barn challenge this year.

Holy cow. I LOVE those blues and greens together. They are stunning. I absolutely love the looks of them. Beads, threads, ribbons, and fabric all make my head spin. Love it.

Thanks for dropping by twice already for WOYWW.

Wow! You have been one busy lady, BJ. Well done at all you have finished this week. I haven't seen any papercraft since before Christmas - what with one thing and another... Lovely work this week. Those blues and greens, the beads, threads and fabrics, really got me excited. They look SO good gathered together.
Enjoy, and hope the finished item gets in the post on time.
Have a great week.

Saw your comment and spent nearly an hour trying to find what you meant. Since I don't use google as my search engine, I tried all kinds of combinations to get me where you suggested. Maybe you could point me in the right direction, since I'm a bit frustrated about now. BTW, entering the word "today" gave me links to the TODAY show on US based NBC tv.

Hi BJ - all sorts of gorgeousness going on chez toi today! Love your colour palette for you felt house for Auntie and the purple one is a delight.

Popping over to your Tim Tag post now... MMx #43

Wow you really have been busy.

I love the idea of a toothpaste box for your pens. And I'm now sat here wondering if I need to read that book!

Have a lovely week :)

I can't figure out what you were trying to show me, and although the .co.uk and .com sites were different, I saw nothing except some company being sold and a fashion web site on the sidebar of the UK site and nothing but links to g-mail and other google links on the .com site.

Happy Belated WOYWW. What a creative week you have had. I was proud to make 3 cards! Ali x. #56

You really have been a very busy lady, far more than me over the last few months. I am hoping to get more inspired and busy this coming year.
Thank you for showing us all those lovely things. xx Maggie #2
