I didn’t make it to WOYWW last week because I was in my sick bed feeling really sorry for myself.
I usually managed to miss all the germs that do the rounds at this time of year but oh boy did I pick this one up. I’ve had all the usual suspects, soar throat, upset tummy, sneezing, coughing and sinusitis and a chest infection thrown in for good measure but just to add insult to injury I’ve now broken out in what looks like a shaving rash all along my right jaw line and have no idea what has caused it. I can only assume that it’s because I’m so run down at the moment.
So as you can imagine, with that little lot going on I’ve not felt much like crafting so haven’t really done very much at all since I was last here.
This week I’m feeling much better thought and am definitely on the mend so I invited my lovely crafty friend Lythan over to play on Monday and the photo of my desk is pretty much the same as it was left after she went home.
As you will notice, I have had to move a few things to make give Lythan room on the table to work, so one stack of boxes that normally live on the table have been moved to a little fold up table in the corner and my box of Promarkers is now on the top of the filing cabinet for the time being, until I get around to putting everything back.
I was working on a page for my heritage album so out on the floor is also the drawer where I keep all my vintage bits, the plastic box I keep all the papers for the album in and also the box of photos I had been sorting through.
The page I was working on is a little different from the normal 12 x 12 pages because this one is made up of five 6 x 4 panels and it seemed to me to be a great way of showing off some of the many photos I have of myself and two brothers as we were growing up.
I was probable about 2 or 3 when these were taken and my brothers were around 9 and 10, so it was a long time ago.
Well that’s it from me for this week…..short and sweet, although lots of photos.
Pop across to The Stamping Ground where Julia has all you need to know if you want to join in and show your work space to the rest of us nosy crafters……..go on, you know you want too!
I’ll be around later this afternoon to see what everyone is up too.
Thanks for stopping by and …….
