WOYWW #147

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 …….

Happy Crafting!

I'm just enjoying a coffee break while my little munchkins take their nap so thought I'd catch up with a few of my blogging friends and check out what you've been up to this week.
So very sorry to hear you've not been well. Hope the sunshine will help and you will be back in full health again very soon.

Glad to hear you're feeling better Sue, but it sounds like a terrible bug you had. Love all your old photos and you're very lucky to have them. My Dad dies when I was five and I have no photos of him just sketchy memories. My greatest fear is waking up one day and no longer remembering his face, so I think about him every single day to keep his memory clear. Love all the papers you're using for the heritage LO's, really goes with the piccies. Do you use the original photos on you LO's, or do you scan them and use prints?

Karen said...

I am glad to read that you are feeling better after your nasty bug [[[hugs]]]. I love your LO's they are gorgeous, I especially love the colour combination and PP's that you have used :)

Yah boo sucks to feeling yucky, am glad that you're on the mend now.
Your LOs of your dad are fab - I'm still my daddy's girl and he's nearly 90. My photos are cherished. They're the things I'd rescue from a burning house...
Hugs, LLJ #74 xx

Twiglet said...

Glad you are feling a bit better. Your photos are so lovely - another Daddy's girl here too.x Jo

JoZart said...

I love all your old photos, they really are treasures and it's good you are making LOs from them.
Get those crochet hooks out and if you can't remember the stitches look on YouTube as there are lots of great tutorials to catch up with those forgotten stitches. Black Sheep Wools Craft Barn is excellent value for quality yarns and do mail order at a good postal rate. The shop in Culcheth is excellent.. even coffee and a sofa there!
Love joZarty x
Hope you are 100% very soon!

Hope you're feeling a lot better this week. I've had shingles down my back many years ago, and didn't even know it! Pain wasn't nice, andgot 'told off' by the doctor for not going sooner! Lovely pictures and well worth scrap booking to keep them forever! Thanks for my snoop! Bit late, as I'm a very slow reader and an even slower typist! Have a great crafty week! HaPpY WoYwW!

Hi Sue,
Thank you for your sweet comment. It is a difficult decision to have to make. Pets definitely add a little spark to our lives!

I love your scrapbook pages - they are so great.

Glad you are feeling better!

If you have any pain, especially around that rash, get to the doctor quickly for treatment. Otherwise it can become very painful. As someone else said, it could be shingles. Hope you soon feel better. xx Maggie #7
