Home Again...

Hi Just wanted to let you know I'm home from Egypt,but not been crafting.
Egypt wasn't what we expected at all & we won't be going back!The weather was great,but I was v ill after a few days (spent a lot of time in the bathroom!).Paul had to go to the chemist for me & they were going to charge him £30 for a few tablets,but then decided they would accept £20!
We think it was poss the water,they were using tap water in everything,bit naughty!
So it was nice to be home & see the kids & my doggies.
I'm just in the process of decorating my craft room & have started stripping the walls today,the flooring was delivered while we were away,it's gonna be soooo posh,lol!!!
Hope to be back crafting soon :o)xxx

WOYWW,My New Stamps & Off On Holiday!!!...

Hello Peeps!!!
I haven't blogged for a few days,so you're in for it now,lol!!!
OK! 1st off it's Wednesday (my day off,ahhhhh) & so of course Julia is asking "What's On Your Workdesk?"
Welllll,on Saturday my luvly Hubby Paul took me over to Skipton so I could visit The Stamp Man shop,I was sooo excited.I have to explain I'm not very confident at driving to strange places & easily get lost!!! So when I got a "yes" from Paul that he would take me,I did a lil happy dance,teehee!!!
I met the luvly Jill & Ian (waves),we had a chat & I shopped & spent money,(I'm good at that!).
This is part of what I bought,the gorgeous "Butterfly Beauties"stamp sheet by Aspects of Design.

I had seen these stamps in Craft Stamper (March 2010) & they really caught my eye,so I knew what I was looking for!!!
Here's the card at another angle,so you can see the embellies I used,the papers are PM Rose Garden & the die-cuts are with them,rest from stash.

This is what's on my window sill at the mo,2 stone heads,carved by my son (L) & hubby (R).
They are both Stone Masons & Paul is teaching Paul Jnr the ropes,so I think it's a fab 1st attempt,don't you?! & they have both sold,straight away!!!
Paul Jnr said they have to stay on my window sill cos they are protecting me!!! (more like he can't be bothered moving them,lol!!!)Until the new owner collects them.

Have to tell you my other news,I booked a holiday yesterday for me & Paul to go to Egypt (Sharm El Sheikh)for a week! We fly this Sunday,can't wait (to thaw out!!!).
Gonna try craft a bit today,but don't hold your breaths!!!
Thanx for looking :o)xxx

I used the fab Graphic45 papers that were on my desk on Wednesday.I altered the paper mache,Pot Porri box,wooden Letter Rack & wooden Perennial Calender.Lots of cutting,measuring,sticking & sanding,just how I like it!!! All the alterable items were bought from The Craft Barn,(luv there Altering section!!!).
All 3 items are now in the hallway,I'm keeping them!!!

Hope you have a fab weekend,TFL :o)x

Plenty of shopping & no crafting,thats what,LOL!!!

This is the pic of my desk for todays What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.
As you can tell by my lack of posting,my mojo has done one!!!
I have still been buying crafty stuff,but have no inclination to make anything,so annoying (have had a word with myself in the corner).
You can see a few of my ladybirds from my collection,on the shelf.The pink leopard print object to the top left corner,is a bingo board from Poundland that I altered.The brown box,btm left,is a paper mache pot pourri holder that needs decorating,the papers it's stood on are scrummy Graphic45 & what I found very very spooky is,this morning when I looked at them, the dark flowery paper is actually called......Pot Pourri! ;-O
There's also last weeks QVC buy,the Tim Holtz package & some paper pads & 2 craft mags.

If anyone finds my mojo,please send it back,TFL :o)xxx
