Hi there - hope everyone is keeping the flu bugs & tummy bugs at bay ?
Both are doing the rounds here in West Wales - not hit us yet - keeping fingers & toes crossed we dodge them both !
The trusty Work-Desk is relatively under control this week, as I had a good tidy up at the weekend. Well if I can see the middle of the desk I count that as tidied !
I sort of tune out the clutter across the back !!
So on my desk this week is a half finished journal page - I saw this image & couldn't get the first line of this poem out of my head - Lord knows how long that has been filed in the depths of my brain - since school - so that is over 30 years !!
Anyway it kept sneaking into my conciousness when my concentration lapsed on something else - so I had to give in & look up the poem !!
It obviously wanted to make it into my journal - so I am using the first stanza - but this is all I have managed on the page so far !
I also have a Christmas card I am part way through making .... I'm not really a card maker as you may know, so am struggling to think how it will go together & how to Christmas it up ! Think I just need to sit & play around a bit !
Most of my limited crafting time last weekend was spent finishing off my Art Deco decoupage cards - they are A5 which is huge compared to what I have made before !!
So it was a bit of a leap of faith to put them together !
The images were big to start with - and a frenzy of matting later they were even bigger !!
Also on my desk I have a Friendship bag which my friend Lynda gave me for my birthday - it was so cute & I appreciated the thoughts behind it so much, I have kept it on my desk but I thought that the sweetie was likely to go sticky & spoil everything else - so I thought I better eat that bit !
And here on the floor by my desk are my bags packed to take to Scrap Club tomorrow night - we are doing inky techniques onto tags - which should be some good messy fun !!
Hope you all have a fun crafty week & looking forward to seeing what you are all up to !!
