Happy WOYWW to everyone. This is 'What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday' and you can join in HERE.
My crafty table is currently quite empty and quiet. I have moved my daylight desk lamp onto that table (it used to be by my pc - where I often sit and craft, so now want another lamp!), so that is the shadow/base you can see. It is a useful place to put finished ATCs and the llama diecuts. Otherwise there are the usual journals etc waiting for action, and a pile of stash/printed out images also waiting for action.
I have been taking a break from the production of ATCs to concentrate on other projects, but after finishing a journal page it seems to have slowed to a snail pace! I started a new exercise routine this week and was over-optimistic about how much I could do (it is meant to be suitable for elderly people and those who have not exercised for a while - but of course I should have realised that did not include those with Fibromyalgia and a fairly active life anyway). I have also been tackling some extra housework and my body just said 'STOP'. Meant to do a session every day for 6 days, then one day off. However, after 2 days my pain levels (and stiffness) were unmanageable, so I took yesterday off and I think it would be sensible to leave the 3rd session until tomorrow. I remind myself that I need to be gentle on myself (physically and emotionally). It is based on Tai Chi and I really want to perservere, so will spend far longer than the suggested 90 days on the entire course and make sure I get lots of rest days.
I finally treated myself to a Brother Scan n' Cut last week when Create & Craft had their latest 'extra special offer' on (30% off a package, plus an additional £5 off when I bought 3 accessories - and I did it all through my TopCashBack account, so another £11 there). It arrived yesterday just before we had to go out and pick up a Tesco order, and I have been really strong and not opened the box up yet (as I know I will then want to stay in my craft room for the rest of the day!). Going to do that shortly - and will do a blog post in the next few days with pictures.
