Nicole Jones 911, I put together several 'scrapbook kits' from my stash. Nicole has several YouTube demos on how she makes her kits, all of which I found very helpful. When I felt like scrapbooking yesterday I just pulled out a couple of the kits and had one layout completed in no time at all and another begun.
Other stuff I've been up to this week.
The EM is doing okay. He had a pre-op examination yesterday but was disappointed to be told that he will need to get another heart scan before the operation goes ahead. He's impatient to get it over and done with so another delay was a bit of a blow. He's at the hospital again tomorrow to have a heart monitor fitted for 24 hours. I can't say, though, that he's letting his dicky heart slow him down all that much - he's not the kind to sit around watching TV all day!
Just visible in my desk photo this week is the 'library' of audio books on my computer. I have set it up to be able to listen here in the craftroom or on my mobile phone when elsewhere - perfect for hanging about hospital waiting rooms. This week's audio books have been a real mixed lot.
This is a lovely book to listen to. The writer records a year in the life of a Hertfordshire meadow. He describes the animals and wild flowers that live and grow in the meadow.
Subtitled a Jayne Sinclair Genealogical Mystery. Brilliant if you are interested in genealogy and history. I now know a lot more about the Irish Civil War and, in particular, the 1916 Revolt in Dublin. A great listen, especially if you like your family history combined with mystery..
I'm such a fan of Scandinavian crime novels and, in particular, those written by the Swedish Stieg Larsson. Too sad that he died before he could write more than three books about 'the girl' Lisbeth Salander. I'm only part way through this one but so far it has not disappointed.
That's all from me today. I'm off to make a cuppa and a bit of lunch before settling down to check out what's on everyone's desks this week.
Have a lovely WOYWW and a wonderful week ahead.
