For those who do not know what WOYWW is (What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday), it is the day when us crafters share piccies of our workspaces/latest projects/wise words through Julia's Stamping Ground. Add your link to the list and enjoy the tour.
I thought I would start my post with a piccie of my newly organised desk area. My new Windows 8 desktop pc is to the right of this area - and around to the left on the other big desk is my more traditional crafting area, ie can get messy with inks/glue/glitter etc. Will show more piccies next week.
I have been busy this week with crafting - but not always the physically productive type. I think that the internet community, magazines, tv etc are very important - and I really enjoy using my time to keep up to date with trends/techniques. My certificate course includes a lot of this, so when I am watching tv, reading a magazine or visiting a craft shop, I AM DOING RESEARCH/STUDY!!! I visited the 2 craft shops in our local town, Haverfordwest, this week and bought a few goodies. I also went to Hobbycraft in Swansea yesterday (had to go to the dentist for a check up after my surgery) - and found myself purchasing a scrapbooking magazine, some of their wonderful £1 stamps (such a lovely selection of designs) and a big bottle of PVA glue. Sadly, I witnessed a horrible car crash near to the store - 2 people died and 2 seriously injured. My thoughts are with the families/friends of those involved - and also to the wonderful emergency services. The professionalism and care demonstrated by the police/firemen/paramedics is truly amazing.
All I can say is - SLOW DOWN AND PUT YOUR LIGHTS ON. All 3 cars involved had no lights on in poor visibility - and the one that caused the accident was going too fast for the road conditions. When I eventually got on my journey home, I was shocked to see how many cars had no lights on and could hardly be seen.
Rant over. Hope that everyone is well and enjoying their crafting. I look forward to touring round this week. Happy WOYWW to everyone that I don't manage to visit.
ETA - The builder starts on the farmhouse today!! Scaffolding is going up, and the old kitchen chimney is coming down (it is in a very poor state - and we realised that taking it out would make the kitchen and bedroom above much larger and easier to redesign). It seemed for ages that this day would never come. We are renting the house opposite, so easy to keep an eye on the progress and I will be taking lots of piccies.
ps This is proof that the sun does sometimes shine in Pembrokeshire. We walked down to this beach last week - cold and windy, but at least the sky was blue.
