WOYWW 458



To change things up a bit, and because I am hurting a lot this cold/wet/windy morning, I have just inserted my photo right at the top.

It was actually taken a few days ago, but I cleared up my crafty table after doing some stuff with my Brother Scan n Cut yesterday afternoon and nothing else has happened so far (I do have some ATCs to make and more journaling to do - but that will be later once breakfast has happened/cats fed etc).  The photo shows my messy table whilst getting some previous ATCs finished.  I love that alphabet stamp set - one of my TK Maxx bargains.  Black embossing powder, which I love apart from the mess it creates.  Those Encaustic Art ATCs have dried now (I paint a Wax Sealer on top to make them last longer) and are put away ready for more layers of something.  The pink box is one of my 'scrap boxes' - I have one for coloured pieces, another for patterned and a larger one for white/cream.

This past week has been difficult for me/us, as very sadly a friend/neighbour died (at far too young an age) and we have the funeral on Friday.  This has contributed to my struggling health right now - yesterday I woke to extreme dizzyness/room literally spinning, which brought on nausea.  I had to miss a block printing workshop that I had been looking forward to for ages (so annoying).  A general flare up of my more usual Fibromyalgia symptoms followed for the rest of the day.  I still have a painful shoulder blade/neck area after some how moving awkwardly in bed a couple of nights ago.  As I have Hyper Mobility Syndrome, obviously this meant that I pulled something in that area and still hurting now.    Health moans over!  Crafting is one of the few things that I can use to distract myself, so will get busy later this morning - and I also have my Spanish evening class tonight, so will do some practice of vocabulary too.

If you would like to take part in the global tour of crafty workspaces, go to Julia's Stamping Ground.

  3. Sorry to hear you've been feeling so rough, and what a shame you had to miss the workshop - hope you soon feel much better. I love the encaustic work - the blue is beautiful and summery - reminds me of the seaside!

  5. Sometimes everything happens all at the same time doesn't it? I'm so sorry to hear about your friend and hope the funeral goes as well as these things can. Sorry to hear that you're feeling so rough at the moment, let's hope it's a short bout and you feel better soon. Don't worry too much about a meet-up because things are crazy for me until mid April..let's have a think then!

  11. Hope you feel a bit better today Ali! I like the finish of black embossing powder too, but the ‘dandriff’ drives me mad, makes hunting out the anti attic bag a worthwhile job. I’m pretty lazy though, so often if I’ve got a good black ink pad, I just use clear powder!
