I cannot remember whether I only missed one week of 'What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday' (see Stamping Ground for more details), but it seems like ages since I joined in with our favourite tour/snoop of crafty workspaces.
Life has been full of attempting to sell excess craft stash from my over-full craft room. A lot has gone (but there is still more, so get in touch if you would like anything - got lots of Kanban cardstock and topper sheets, a few stamps, a whole of box of Xmas stash etc, etc, etc!), but I am now just listing the bigger items on Ebay (Inkadinkado Stamping Gear packs at the moment) rather than wasting my valuable time on Facebook.
My craft room is a lot clearer now and I can start to concentrate on cardmaking for family/friends/charity, getting my sewing machine in use again (joined a monthly club where they send me the materials for a project with instructions - go to http://www.seamstar.co.uk/craft_club.php), scrapbooking (I start a fortnightly workshop at a local craft shop on Friday), journaling, and continuing my quest to learn new craft techniques (at the moment that includes parchment craft, paper cutting and also got a magazine with quilling to try). Busy, busy, busy!
Blogging has taken a back step, but I will try to do regular posts of what is going on in my life. My health has improved 'sort of', with painkillers being taken rarely rather than several times per day. However, my hip is the issue, flaring up if I try to do too much, which is not enough in my thoughts! Very frustrating when the weather is improving and I want to be out training my pony, walking the dogs and getting on with jobs around the house/yard. Oh well, at least I get to spend time in my craft room 'resting'.
I will have a good read of other blogs later - another excuse to 'rest', but hope that everyone is well and happy.
My photos this week show a really cute origami dog card I attempted for the first time (you can get the download from https://www.printableheaven.com/) and also my little collection of crafty books.
The other big piece of crafty news is that I treated myself to an Ebosser (after my little Sizzix machine proved too small for a project yet again). It is waiting patiently to be unpacked and a permanent home found for it where it will be convenient for me to use it. I love new gadgets!
