Hello and Happy WOYWW to you all,
Sorry I didn't get around to see all your work spaces last week - pain stopped play. I wasn't so good for a few days and the pain in my legs made sitting at the computer off limits. Seen the doc, who upped the medication I'm taking and if that doesn't work it's a trip to the hospital to see what the consultant can suggest :( Fingers crossed, that won't be necessary. Excuses over, I hope you all had a happy, and productive, week.
I can't believe we are now in August already. However, because it's August, specifically the 3rd of August, what's on my desk is special. Today is my daughter's 40th birthday so I've broken into my treasured Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper especially for her. Not quite revealed, but under the pad, is the card I'm making for her. If you're thinking I'm leaving it a tad late, not so, I'm not seeing her until Saturday at her barbecue party and it will be done by then :) You can see the stamp I'm using, the Timmy inks, some butterfly embellies and ribbon - lots of yummy ribbon. I had to replace the black polka dotted ribbon I used up on the Back to Black card made recently - see here - so when I was in my local haberdashery shop the other rolls just happened to drop into my basket. Love the burgundy one with dragonflies on it - no idea when and what it will ever be used for but it's there for me to enjoy :)
This cheery chappie sits on top of my CD collection nodding his little head all day long - a gift from a friend, he just makes me smile.
A few of the comments I received recently concerned the paint colour, Turtle Seas, that we have chosen for one of our kitchen walls. Hels, for example, thought it might be pale turquoise. So I thought I'd let you all see that it's quite a strong colour. This was not my first choice, that was a very much lighter shade called Water. However, when the EM opened the pot, the paint look curdled - it had gone off! On returning it to the shop he found there were no pots of our chosen colour left so, after a hasty telephone discussion, we opted for this. Pleases the EM because he loves strong colours, and it's grown on me too - it's a definite improvement on the yukky yellow that was there before. The dresser, which was sage green - I know, yukky yellow and sage green - what a can I say, these things happen when you move house - is now a very sparkling Moonlight White - gorgeous :)
That's it from me today - short and sweet by my standards:) If you are wondering what this daft woman is wittering on about why don't you click on the WOWYY logo on the side here and meet an awful lot more WOYWWers prepared to bare all, in a workdesk sort of way you understand, every Wednesday.
I'm off for a spot of lunch now and then I'll be back to do a bit of desk hopping myself.
