Another week has gone by, and we get even closer to Xmas. We do not have any children or much family, but I still panic a bit about getting the shopping done/presents wrapped and posted/cards made and posted ...... Do not know how you busy mothers cope?!
WOYWW stands for 'What is On Your Workspace Wednesday' and is the baby of Julia on her blog, Stamping Ground. We all share our links to our workspace/lives every Wednesday, and then take a tour around the world, leaving comments in a trail behind us.
My picture today shows not a lot going on, as I tidied up (as usual) after my crafting/studying session yesterday. Studying? You may ask. Well, I am now a student again - and it is related to one of my favourite pastimes, Paper Craft! Only just started and it is already proving to be interesting, educational and challenging - all in a good way. Go to The Craft Qualifications Centre for more details.
As part of my study (we need to do research and explore sources of inspiration - so a good excuse for watching tv, reading magazines and spending time on blogs/forums!), I am hoping to get to the NEC. It will be a long day for me - at least 4 hours of driving each way - but I am keeping everything crossed that my annoying body allows me to get there. I have looked at the list of exhibitors, and there are so many fab companies. My little head is spinning at the thought of it. I have been involved with the business-side of crafting before (had my own market stalls, and on-line business), and my hubby is encouraging me to think of doing this again. Not sure which direction I will be going in, but registered to attend the trade show in February again and also the trade magazine (very interesting to read about new products and future trends). It will be difficult to combine anything new with my existing life and health issues, but I am determined to give it a go.
I did get to the NEC and it was fab! Take a look at my post today (Friday 9th) for further details.
Can I ask you something? Could you all comment with what inspires you most in your crafting (a blog, forum, shop, tv show, magazine etc, etc). Also, if anyone has a commission that they would like made (a card, gift or whatever). I would be happy to do this for free, as I need to complete projects for my course. Get in touch at any time. Thank you.
ps Happy WOYWW to everyone who I do not get round to visiting.
