A BIT LATE WOYWW

I'm a bit late in posting on this, another WOYWW, hosted by the lovely Julia.

'Peg leg' went to Beverley again yesterday to take our SiL home so he can work his notice before returning here next week to start his new job properly. Unfortunately, he brought some friends back with him who kept me awake most of the night - a grizzly bear with toothache, a parrot practising for the X-Factor, that old witch from the film 'Robin Hood' who was screeching her spells all night, someone with a donkey, someone else with a hammer drill and finally, a painter and decorator who was gathering up his empty paint cans all night. To top that, we had the most awful, heavy rainstorm to date. LOL.

You may have gathered I am a bit slow and weary this morning. Thank goodness I took a couple of photos yesterday before my eyes started to go bleary.

These are my acquisitions this week. I've been wanting that MS monarch punch for ages and finally bought it on Sunday from a lovely store near to me, Windmill Crafts. I also wanted the Tattered Leaves die after seeing some wonderful creations on blogs using it. The Texture Fades are just scrummy and I may just collect them all! oops!

Following a spell of 'lost mojo' I tried alsorts of things to get it back. A lovely crafter asked me if I had recently cleared my work space as I may have packed my mojo away too. As it happened, I had, so I quickly made a mess again by starting a project from this months Craft Stamper magazine - a note book. Hopefully, I shan't lose my mojo again 'cos 'tis the season of joy and goodwill very soon and I need to get cracking with my cards.
Off to start my travels around the amazing craft rooms of the world. Still on a mission to get round them all which I hope to achieve at some point. See ya.

Good Minds think alike - those are the exact same texture fades that I want to use to add some texture to the back of my 7gypsies Printer trays! And isn't that tattered leaves die adorable, we've had to have two restocks in a week and each time they sold out within hours - I think I'm going to have to hide one to keep all for myself next time they come in!!!

Oooh - lovely all those texture fades! For me, the mojo doesn't accidentally get packed away, it gets *buried* under piles of stash... can't move forward in any interesting way until I put everything back where it belongs! have a great day! Hugs, Ellen (37)

Always thought that tidying up was dangerous and you've confirmed it. Better a messy desk than a lost mojo!! Pam (21)

I saw that punch when I bought the two MS I now own. I probably should have gotten it. I lost my mojo, too. And I didn't pack mine away. If you find it in with your things, please let me know (grin). I'm #1.

Daniele said...

Glad you found your mojo, it normally doesn't go too far away. Some great new bits, I'm sure you'll have fun playing. Thanks for popping onto my blog and leaving a comment. Unfortunately it was just plain coke, I'm not a rum kind of gal. Now Amaretto, that's a different thing altogether! Love Elliefantasy xx (129)
