Hello Everyone,

Happy International Women's Day to you all. Thanks for visiting and I hope this finds you well and enjoying lots of crafting time. 

So another three weeks has sped by and I've been missing in action again! Still trying to get my new craftroom sorted but I'm getting there, slowly but surely. A new desk and shelving has been added. 

With thanks to my daughter and her hubby for assembling it all for me. Silver approves too. 

I'm still unpacking but taking my time to finding a home for everything. The labeling of the boxes is essential or I won't be able to find a thing. 

There's someone coming tomorrow to mount the TV up out of the way on the wall above the desk. Then the next big job I have lined up is to set up my PC and all its attachments on my desk in such a way it's taking up the least possible space. Such fun!

I've had very little time, or inclination if I'm honest, to scrap for several weeks but I did join in with the Mind The Scrap Cyber Crop recently and manage to create these four layouts. 

Not great but every little helps. 

It's still cold up here though we've not seen so much as a flake of the promised snow. Not that I'm complaining as it would put a stop to my occasional walkabouts. Here's a couple of pics from a recent walk to the beach. 

In a garden a few doors down. 

And this is a rare site - a post box! This one was tucked inside a privet hedge, almost in hiding. 

And, of course, the beach. 

The vessel that can be seen in the distance is the ferry to the Isle of Arran. 

That's it from me today. I'm late again but, as it's still Wednesday, I hope I'll be forgiven by not only our Head Desker, Julia, over on the Stamping Ground but by all you lovely WOYWWers! 

Before I go here's a wonderful photo taken of the Aurora borealis (also known as the Northern Lights) seen here in Ardrossan one night last week. 

Bye for now,

WOYWW - Week 714

Hello Everyone,

Goodness, it's been quite a while! Lots of reasons most of which I will resist boring you with here. Instead here's a shot of my workdesk, such as it is, today. 

As you can see I'm still working on a makeshift desk, actually a camping table,  but it's at least in what will be the new craftroom. I'll not deny there's lots to do yet. The old craft desk had served me well for something like sixteen years.
Beautiful but far too big. So, regretfully, it had to go. It's now in a local primary school and I hope the children there get as much pleasure using it as I have. It certainly took the sting out of parting with it to know it was going to a very good cause.

A new, smaller, desk has been ordered and delivered. It's flatpack so I await the help of a handyman to put it together. I look forward to posting a photo very soon. 
Time for scrapping is short but I've managed a few (13 so far) pages by working in short bursts. Here's just a few. 

That's Christmas and winter done with for now. The days are warming, sunshine has even been spotted hereabouts and I can feel that Spring is just around the corner. Happy days ahead!

Have a wonderful WOYWW and a fabulously crafty week ahead. 

Bye for now,
