This is my weekly contribution to a global blog hop around crafty workspaces. Come and join in, or just have a nose. Julia @ Stamping Ground is the lady who keeps us all in order! WOYWW stands for What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
We made these pretty Thank You cards at the Tuesday Papercraft group. There will be a matching box for them to be presented as a gift, but that is what I missed making last week. I will catch up in the coming weeks. Do you notice something? Well, two things. First of all, we used peel-offs. Seems they are coming back into ‘fashion’. I don’t have any in my craft room now. They certainly make cardmaking simpler. The second thing – I made the silver bow myself. I am not known for my ability to make a neat bow, or actually to use a bow at all. However, Jan our Tutor, persuaded me to give it a go – and I was very proud with the result.
On the way home I stopped off in Haverfordwest and visited the craft shop there. There were new Pixie Powder colours to be viewed (these ones are called Pixie Bursts – think they have a mixture of colours in each one?) – and the full set purchased (would have been rude not to). They are from Creative Expressions and were featured on the new tv channel – HobbyMaker TV. You can see all the products featured in the show at a very good price at the website for In2Craft (if you are in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, go and see Ben in the shop in Bridge Street).
I also found 2 more dog-themed sets to make cards for charity.
Having Sunday as my personal crafting day is not working out, ie I need more time, especially when the weather is good enough for us to go out for a walk and have F1 to watch. I announced to hubby that at least one evening per week I would be found in my craft room, which suits him, as he is starting to cycle regularly again.
I need some more time to enjoy my ‘hobby’ and escape from the ever more busy household/workload. Crafting is such a good distraction for me from my pain and other symptoms.
Until next time.
