When you become a pensioner, Wednesdays mean it's 10% day at B&Q! But they also mean it's time to get the bus pass out and nip around to see what crafters are up to all over the world. Now wouldn't that be good, a bus pass to take you to Australia or Canada or everywhere in fact. That would be something to say WOW about. Still, I suppose this little machine I am sitting at does that very thing - and I don't have to move. All this was started by Julia who had a little thought one day. Thank you Julia.
This is mine this morning:
Xmas papers strewn about, a card drying, a piece of card I mopped up ink with yesterday, a Xmas hanging frame doing just that so it doesn't get damaged, plus all the usual tools of the trade. Need to have a clear up today before going to make use of that 10% at B&Q!
Before I nip off may I ask you to spare a thought for folk you either know or don't know who are going through difficulties. This week I have friends who have had their heart broken, others who have had their body hurt and others who have hurt each other without realising thus causing a different pain. All these people are very special to me and so I feel their pain too. Sometimes all we can do is let them know we care - very much. xx

you are way further than I am with Festive crafty things...looks like you're in full flow. And yes indeed - counting our blessings and remembering others is an often forgotten art. Thanks for sharing today, Sarah at 2.

Lovely desk and thanks for the reminder, it's easy to get caught up in our own daily whirl and not think of others

thanks for sharing

So sorry to hear about your friends. I hope things are looking up for them soon!

Love the TH stuff that! And traveling all over the world via WOYWW, too!

Have a great Wednesday!

Love 10% days, Abakhan Fridays are my favourite, although I think B and Q will become my new favourites once we get the flat! Thanks for your comment btw, it does sound as though this week has been a black week!
Love, Chrisxx

We human beans, we are fargile and yet we can be so strong: I will hold your friends in my thoughts for sure. Lovely Christmas card I really like the white. I've bought the same die, but have only used it for the swirls and holly so far..thought I'd try to copy the arrangement shown on the packet - 'serving suggestion'.

If you sell that bus pass save me one,otherwise I will just vicariously travel the world through everyon'es desk. Yes I am not having a good week either. Just heard my ex sister in law is not doing too well with her cancer and is in real pain and if she does not survive she will be leaving an 8 year old to relatives, very sad as she is only 40+ something herself.

For being # 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry but, after a computer crash, I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your desk. Sorry to read that so many of your friends are going through a bad patch.
