Well, as i start this post on Wednesday afternoon, its warm outside, I could do with some fresh air and its craft day on QVC.
I stayed up last night cos not been able to sleep again - and managed to see what the TSV is (today's special value) but not for me thank you... then fell to sleep on the sofa, only waking up when I made myself jump (as you do)... couldn't hack it anymore so went to bed. Have had a rubbish nights 'sleep' and struggled to get up... so here we are - late (er) than usual!
In the past couple of weeks, I've tried to write my post the night before - taking pics the first thing the following morning. Not this week.
Here it is - left as it was when I went to bed last night.
A bit messy, i'll give you that, piles of things on the right - nothing of substance.
At the back in my DVD cases are my nesties, more rolls of bargain DST on my cup stand. My new but just cracked coffee canister with my scissors and metal rulers in - oh, and an old knife - well you never know what you might need to unscrew and a darn sight easier than ferriting around in the shed to see where Mr G has 'tidied away' his screwdrivers!!!
Here are a couple of new purchases:
Anna Griffin Sentiment Stamps, bought from QVC last week. There are some really nice sentiments in this set with fancy writing and scrolls. Hmm nice.
Next is something that my lovely friend Lynn Linby delivered to me last night... The 'Flight of the Butterfly' set from Stamping Up... can't wait to get using that. I went full hog and bought the matching punch too. Well you gotta, aintcha?!!!
Lynn and I had our usual chats which led here there and everywhere, forgetting how we got there, talked about all sorts - the time just flies by - before you know it, she's having to go home and we realise what the real time is - shock horror.... thanks for the company Lynn!!!
Here we have some of my latest storage solutions to all those files, boxes and wallets of scrap papers that were screaming to be sorted out - which my mum has been a star at doing for me.
here's the neutral colours:
In here are the metallics, white, cream, black, grey and brown - then at the back are the multicoloured bits.
Next is the rainbow file:
Red, Yellow, Pink, Green, Orange, Purple and Blue (I sang that as I typed) LOL - I tell you what, I've not cut into a whole piece of card since I sorted that out, and I didn't realise how many bits of mirri card I'd got - should save me cutting into a fresh one for a while.
Finally - you know me and sorting things out into colour... my threads, ribbons, buttons, beads, inks, card, pens etc... well now its my flowers:
And before you ask or comment, YES they are chinese takeaway boxes and NO they're not mine LOL - they're my dear lovely Mum's who helped me sort them out last week... we did laugh though cos she got most of them on the floor!!!!
I apologise if I didn't make it to your desk last week. I didn't feel 100% - infact exhausted and still in pain is the word. I called the hospital to speak to the consultant's secretary but she never called me back. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and waited to see if I received a letter in the post. Up to yesterday afternoon (our post is NOT early) - there was nothing so I called the hospital again. Low and behold she wasn't there again. Anyway, I called my doctors surgery instead and booked a telephone consultation which happened about 11.15 this morning. I was 12 weeks post op yesterday, 7 weeks post 2nd op - which isn't causing any major problems... However, its getting beyond a joke trying to cope with the pain from the thoracic surgery despite STILL being on two prescription painkillers and paracetamol all day - the pain is coming straight through the meds. The doctor wants to see me tomorrow, so DH will be taking me in the morning... We'll see what happens.
Anyway, if you are nosey like me; if you want to see what fellow crafters are (or are not) up to; if you want to show the WWW what you have on your desk, floor, camping table, dressing table, sewing table, caravan table, dining table or where ever you craft etc etc to show us what work in progress you have at the moment - go visit Julia, leader of the WOYWW movement and leave a link to your desk on Mr Linky. Remember to leave a comment when you have visited someone - you know how it feels when someone has left you a comment - its like getting a hug!!!! it makes your day.
So, kick back, get a cuppa and while away the day by visiting the fabulous ladies and gents who join in the phenomenon that is WHATS ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY... well go on then, what are you waiting for ????
Thanks for reading - please leave a comment to say you've been - even if it is only a one word 'hi' - hopefully you'll come back again soon - but let me know and i'll put the kettle on!!!
hugs, Paula x x x
