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.
