Wednesday, 15 December 2010


I wait and wait for the 1st December to come around so that I can experience the 12 tag journey, and before I knew it this year, it's been and gone! What a blast I had though. The tags this time were 'chocker block' with tips and amazing techniques and all were gorgeous. It's a long time to wait for next December, but judging how quickly these Wednesdays come round, it will be here before I know it. In fact, I've just booked to go away next Christmas!!!!!!!
Well, if you can't wait for Tim's tags how about having sneaky peeps at craft desks from around the world. Our leader Julia set all this up for us to do just that.
This was mine last night - actually, it's the same this morning. I saw these Tim stamps on Ebay at the end of November, put a bid on and won them. 7 sets in total and I only had 1 of them already. They have come from America and cost me £22. That's what I call a bargain.
'Peg leg' finally received the neck for his guitar - the postie delivered it at 7.15pm on Saturday night!!!!!!! - right in the throes of the X-Factor final - you know the one where my favourite - Matt Cardle - won. Anyway, he has been busy putting the lacquer coats on it (it needs at least 24 coats!) and this is the result so far.
Looking good. It still has a long way to go, but he's getting there.
Enjoy your trip around the world today. I'm just off to enjoy my travels.
Keep warm.

Great bargain!! Only way I am shopping for Christmas this year. Did a little this morning. We have a shop that has everything and is so inexpensive, jewelry that costs $40-50 in other stores are $11-15 for a set and it is not junk believe me. Have a great week and thnaks for stopping by.

That's such a lovely thought about enjoying the trip around the world today. It really is a voyage each week. I love seeing people's snowy homes, the beautiful spring and summery colours from those down under, and just snooping at the desks in general.

Those are absolutely bargainous Tim stamps; hope you enjoy!

Once again I'm playing WOYWW catch-up. I had a computer meltdown and didn't know where I had left off in the numbers. I am not a stamper, but that sounds like a bargain on those stamps. And please update us on the guitar. This is SO fascinating. Happy belated from # 4.
