A SUNNY WOYWW

Happy Wednesday to you all and what a Wednesday. The sky is blue ready to give another glorious autumn day, and those brave Chilean miners are finally seeing the sunshine too. Now that's worth celebrating don't you think?

Not much on my desk today but I hope there will be quite a mess as the day goes on.


I downloaded a set of instructions for an inked hillside background, courtesy of Artylicious, but have not tried it yet. The scrap card you can see is a practise piece I ran through my Martha Stewart snowflake punches. Rather gorgeous.



Here you can see the remnants of some card I alcohol inked yesterday as part of a 'Warrior Women' tag I made following a post on the Artistic Stamper blog. Do check this out as it's not only a breast cancer support post, but there is some candy up for grabs too. I have a link in my sidebar also.
Notice those little golden beauties in the last photo. Here is a closer look.



'Peg leg' made these for me and are a 'take' on type charms. Notice the 6-sided ones, they are a bit posh eh?
Just a quick note here also if I may. 'Peg leg' had another hospital appointment yesterday and at long last, they looked at the correct knee. Yippee! Anyway, he has to have an operation, yippee again, had his pre-op tests, another yippee, but has at least 16 weeks to wait, booo! If you do the maths, 16 weeks from now comes mighty close to Feb 23!! and we all know what is happening then!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, we shall work around both events and are just grateful that he is getting treatment after all this time.
I was working on a little notebook last week and have been asked to show the finished article. I made this from the one in the October Craft Stamper magazine and it turned out ok.





If you pop over to Julia's blog now, you can visit work desks all over the world and have a peep at other people's craft. I'm off to do just that.

Love your book and the charms but I adore the snowflake punch. Now if I could only get round to Ch******s plans I might get me one of those!
Thanks for the snoop and for popping by mine.

did you see 'the doctor' come out? he was greeted by 'a lady' - but was it his wife or his lover ???- oh the miner story is better than eastenders - so good that they are all out and okay (well maybe Mr unfaithful might need to put some distance between himself and a his womenfolk for a while if he wants to stay healthy for a bit longer...)

Lets hope Peg Leg gets sorted sooner rather than later. I can sympathise with knee probs and know how long that will feel like waiting.

I was here earlier in the week, and for the life of me, could NOT leave a comment. Kept getting that 503 blogger error. Glad to read that "peg leg" is getting the treatment on his correct leg this week. I love those charms, too. You should keep him close (grin). Happy belated WOYWW from #2.

Great date book. Good luck to Peg Leg. Knee problems in the cold of winter are not much fun! #78

Hi Joanne, just having a catch up! Love your notebook. Glad 'Peg Legs' hospital appt went as well as it could, how awful that he has to wait so long......hope it doesn't interfere with your t!m class......scary too that 16 weeks away will be Feb! Love S xx

Sherry said...

Hope your desk did get messier as you wished for! Love the dates book and I hope there isn't a clash of dates with the hospital appt.

(Thanks for already stopping by my desk)
