I'm oh so late to the party today ... in fact, thought I might have to give it a miss entirely due to the EM's accident - for the story see my earlier post. He has asked that I pass on his thanks to all the well wishers - they are much appreciated. He has been in terrible pain and quite unable to do much for himself since it happened. However, I'm glad to report that he has perked up a bit today and things are looking a bit brighter. Unfortunately, the dinner we planned for my birthday yesterday evening had to be postponed ... we will just have to celebrate at a later date.
Now, to the reason for the post ... what's on my desk ... well it's become a dumping ground and I feel I've probably just won my first merit badge as a WOYWWer!!!! My desk has become like so many other WOYWWer's :))
The box on the left, under the partially completed birthday card, contains my stock of A4 sized DP - most came free with magazines - I got them out with the intention of making good use of them but ... well, they're still there. The unfinished card ... I'm not happy with it so it's awaiting a tweak or two. Mind you, I'd better get a wriggle on because it's due for a 5th December birthday. There's several piles of photographs at the back... the packet is full of pics taken in Italy in 1998 when we holidayed on the fabulous Amalfi coast ... what I'd give to be there now ... and on top are some photos of my lovely grandchildren - all awaiting sorting/scanning before scrapping. Next to them are some 2012 calendars - I intend to do something with them ... soon. The little pile of photos at the front are from a friend - they are so nice I'm planning to use them in a project ... some time soon. Underneath them are two scrapbook pages waiting to be blogged about. And then there's the memo pads - I'm going to re-cover them with DP, they will make nice stocking fillers, I think.
So that's it for this week. Anyone interested in joining in Julia's weekly blogathon, feel free to pop along to the Stamping Ground where you will be made most welcome - just click the WOYWW logo on my sidebar. I will be doing my best to pop in and check out as many desks as I can but I may fail miserably ... you see, I'm not only nursing the EM, but also carrying out a lot of his duties and responsibilities and he's an exacting task master :)))))) Off to make him a cuppa before I start this week's hop.
Wishing you all a great week and happy crafting,
Edited note: Many thanks to all who expressed an interest in the tutorial for the Christmas catalgue tree - I've posted it and you can find it here.
