Wednesday - WOYWW day - so time for everyone to hop over to Julia's place, The Stamping Ground, and reveal the state of their workspace once again - just click the WOYWW icon to the left for a quick link.
I've been messing with my lovely new distress inks, making backgrounds on ATC blanks - four with perhaps too much water spritzed over the ink and one with maybe not quite enough ... I can see it is going to be a case of trial and error.
This basket is a new addition to the workdesk ... I've seen similar on a few WOYWWer's desks ... and spotted the one Di has on her desk last week ... her basket of goodies waiting to be used for the first time. Thought it was a great idea because, as I have a well-developed neatnik streak, I tend to put new goodies away immediately, stashed thus forgotten, so I've pinched the idea in the hope that I'll use everything at least once before it's put away :))
Eliza wanted to know how I use kitekat in art ... well, here's how - I store toppers in the empty box. I've been intending to cover it with something a bit more decorative looking for eons but it's just one of those projects that gets neglected - rather like the soap tablet box that can just about be seen in the background :) It's got more toppers in it ... maybe I should just get a bigger prettier box to hold all the toppers!
Just one last thing before I go to bed.
Last month I entered Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge - to make a Christmas card on or after the 25th of every month - it ends on the last day of the month - and blow me if I didn't win the draw ... number 13 - lucky for some, lucky for me :) This morning the postie delivered the beautifully packaged prize - donated by the lovely Di this month - together with a lovely card from Sarn. Many thanks to you both.
So that's me this week. The tortuous trotters are improving and, indeed, I did get out on Monday ... the first time in two weeks. I couldn't and didn't walk far ... baby steps :) Many thanks to all who have left messages of sympathy ... they were much appreciated.
I did rather better than usual last week and visited just over 90 blogs ... it would have been more but for the a few where I wasn't able to leave a comment. This week I hope to do as well, if not better ... well, I'm nosy and I like to see what you are all up to :))
As always, I hope you are all well and that none of you have been too badly affected by the unusual weather conditions that seems to be out lot for now.
Take care and happy crafting,
