Another week has flown by (how did I ever find time to work outside the home?).  Up early and thought I would sneek in at a higher number on the very long list of crafters who feel the need to share a picture of their workspace (visit Julia's blog, Stamping Ground, to see what all the excitement is about


Oh well, I will put a comment with a link back to here.

Apologies for the poor quality of my photo this week.  My phone does not take a good picture unless it is daylight - still dark outside here.

I had a hugely busy crafty day yesterday, but did tidy up before I went to bed - so my desk just shows some of what I made (I also did a card for my stepson - he passed his driving test on Monday).  There are 3 ATCs to be posted (the UK Stampers March swap), a 'naked' postcard for another UK Stampers swap, and also some stamped images (from the stamp I am posting off for my first stamping round robin).

I won my first prize!  The weekly challenge from Stampin Queens.  Very proud, as that card took me ages to make and at times I do wonder why I do it!!

Going to take my first painkiller of the day and watch the Pick of the Day from Create & Craft.

ps  Had a very good postie day yesterday.  My order from Joanna Sheen arrived - the fab Kitty in teacups decoupage, a Versamark pen (to replace the one that died) and the Walnut Stain Distress Ink pad (now my new favourite).

    Happy WOYWW.

  4. Congrats on winning, what was your prize? I have started entering challenges, but no luck yet. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  5. Hi Anita,

    Firstly, well done to your StepSon on passing his driving test - I bet he feels such a sense of relief. I remember passing my test and having to 'pinch' myself as I couldn't quite believe it!

    Also, congrats to you on winning your first challenge - I'm sure there will be many many more. Your desk doesn't exactly look as messy as when I even do one small card. I do try to put away tho afterwards (sometimes I win too).

    How envious I am that you live in Pembrokeshire. I LOVE the place - particularly the Saundersfoot area, Angle Bay, Haverfordwest etc - I would happily move there as long as I was only a few minutes from the beach (**sigh**)!

    Finally I want to say how active you are for someone with Fibro and HMS - I suffer with exactly the same conditions (plus other issues) and wished I was able to get about - I try, but tiredness wins the day.

    Well done in all you achieve despite your conditions - and happy crafting, enjoy your new blog too.

    Best wishes
