WOYWW 81 (inc. Sew Easy review)

I've got a few things to show/tell you today, so I best get cracking. After I tell you the state of the weather WINTER WONDERLAND is the phrase of the day, even the slush has been turned to crisp whiteness, the snow is falling so heavy. It looks beautiful - for once.

Onto my desk.. a closed laptop and a lack of Ribena or coffee, the reason for this - I had just got up. Centre stage is my copy of Cardmaking & Papercraft, with and email of mine which I sent in a few months ago! Yippee, a friend on Trimcraft alerted me too it, and so I rushed out to buy a copy last night.

In the left hand corner of the picture are some cards I made last night (I have tidied up the wreckage caused by those.. - I'll be posting some later). In front of those is my Kindle, in its lovely blue cover, LOVE this piece of technology. YUM! On top of that is my first attempt at a friendship bracelet, if anyone is interested, let me know and I will post about them in more depth. They are really fun, and although at first it seems like they will take ages - it passes the time away quite nicely when you are watching crap TV.

My email including one picture of the two I sent in - which were cards
made using the Bentley Bear Chipboard embellishments (the free gift
included in the magazine).
Stacked up at the right hand side are some of my embossing powders (I keep them in plastic boxes as it eases the use of them, both application and tidying up)- as well as some Versamark. And then closest to the camera are some goodies I bought off another friend on Trimcraft, some Coordinations card stock (for use with my CB - when I get it!! after Santa has been - can't wait to start playing), and a background stamp.

Oh, and on the chair is my beloved bag from Accessorize - its navy blue and brown with flowers and deers and things on, and its HUGE! :D I use my North Face brown plaid backpack for uni though - otherwise I would end up with curvature of the spine - seriously!


Anything else.. let me know.



  1. You have a nice area to work in, but what is a Kindle. Is it a diary? Best wishes

  11. Oh commenting on a person whose been published I feel posh lol Love your review on the sew easy tool I have recently got on of these and love it - really good for faux stitiching so if you press lightly and then sew using a marker pen - Have a great Christmas ~ Nicky 52
