The increasingly inky and painty ramblings of a stampaholic, whilst kneeling on the floor. Yes, my knees do protest!

WOYWW 71 - a Simon Says Challenge entry.
Hi all. Well, got the phone fixed, so I am in contact with the world again. (ok, so I had my mobile (cell if you prefer) but I am not a big user of it.) Anyhow I managed to get an appointment for Saturday afternoon, so I didn't have to take any time off work which is always good.
It also gave me Saturday morning to do the weekend shopping chores and - erm - move some of the stash that lives in the way of the phone socket. You may have seen in the post from the time, the stuff I had to move - most of it went to the bathroom!
And the living room window cill
Just so the engineer could get here :
(You didn't know I had carpet did you!)
then it all had to go back. I ended up moving some of the stuff around a little so the drawers of inkpads are at the other end nearest the TV now instead of towards the doorway, but that's all. (the shock of vacuuming was too much, I couldn't reorganise the stash as well!!)
But the piles do look a bit neater for now (and the dust has gone off the Melt pot so may get to use that soon!)
This is meant to be a chair for sitting on! The box contains all sorts of "stuff" some of which you've seen before but has become a bit of a pre-altering dumping ground!!
So, what IS actually on my desk this Wednesday? Well, my nephew Robert is going to be 21 next week, so I have made his card (yes, I know how early am I?!) But I will be away as I am going to stay with my mum for a few days at the weekend - it is her birthday on Saturday - so I had to get this done early
Rob is autistic, he has Aspergers syndrome, and shares a house with other boys (or maybe boys and girls) under supervision. My sister, his mum would be so proud of him.
And because I have used (although not much, admittedly) metal - this is my Simon Says "metal" challenge from yesterday's post.
I may not be back in time from Mum's to join in next week, although I hope to.
In the meantime, if you need to check out what I have been showing you all these weird pictures of boxes and patches of carpet for, hop over to Julia's for all the info.
