Afternoon all, hope you are keeping well. No card from me today (I've got one made - which you may catch a glimpse of - will just hang on to it to link it to some challenges - lol), just some piccies to share and wondering if any of you are like me.
There have been some posts lately over on Kandi's blog that I have really related to and thought I would share some pics of the magazines & books by my bedside - that I think have got bigger since some piccies last year:
There are crafty mags, home mags, general interest mags ( I was going to type girlie mags but that sounds sooo wrong!) - am sure you know what I mean - I am currently re-reading Period Living because although I live in a 20 year old house on a big housing estate when we win the lottery this is the sort of house I'll be after - ahh a girl can dream!!
These are my books that I keep buying or people lend me - quite varied. I started the Jackie Collins because I hadn't read for ages just couldnt get anything to interest me - so I thought I'd give a nice trashy novel a go - you know when you want to read something but don't want anything heavy or hard going. Only a couple of chapters in though and then I got the Cherry Cake book as a bargain (after seeing it mentioned in Nancy's blog) in the sales and started to read that - oh it is so lovely - makes me want to re-read Enid Blyton!!
Are you a Flitter - thats what my mum recently described me as because I seem to flit from one thing to another - there is obviously my love of card making - but then I saw a post on Helens Blog to make some fingerless gloves - I thought I could do that so here is my attempt:
I must admit I did have to get my mum to sew them up!!
Now not only do I have a crafty desk - I have a little crafty chair area in the front room where I flit over to and possibly cross-stitch or read mags here it is:
There are just sooooo many things I want to have a go at (blogs & the internet are to blame - lol - when you see so many inspiring things)..erm the sewing machine will be attempted soon - just waiting for some bits & bobs to get me going.
Lastly (sorry for all the pics) here is my bomb site desk this morning - as there had been talk on the MSE forum about getting tidy and organised - and it inspired me to commence operation tidy up :
Nearly there just got to sort out places for the boxes I have filled with bits & pieces.
Right off to cast on to make a mug hug now - (again off Helens blog!!) - thanks for looking xx
