WOYWW 371 - here we are again

So, it's Wednesday again already... what happened to last week?
Jan is waiting for you here  for your desks, and if we're really lucky, Julia will join in again too

not a lot on my floor this week (that's a blatant lie, obviously most of my craft room is on the floor...)

a finished journal page, a background started ages ago and stagnating.. some little treasures received from a dear friend (non desker!) - some copies of some lovely photos of ladies; and an altered domino -  and some Timmy stamps that may or may not have appeared before.. some Paperartsy ones are on the way... will probably arrive today now!




Haven't been very crafty at all lately, apart from the journal page which you can't really see so I'll add a picture of it for you..


















there have been some fabulous sunsets the last few days, and whilst I put them on twitter and one on facebook I know not everyone is on those platforms so am sharing them here, even though this is my crafty blog!
-  they were just too good to hide away on the computer.
  this first one was on the 7th, fantastic
and this one on Monday, the 11th.  not as spectacular, and I missed most of it.  but I do like the dark clouds in this one!   (I couldn't quite get the street light out of the shot)


anyway, I've kept you long enough go, go, Jan is waiting!


Am delighted to hear from Jan today that Julia is taking us back on next week, so a BIG thank you to Jan for taking the reins and looking after us all in the last few weeks, you are a true and great friend indeed.

Hello Helen. Thanks for the visit. I am always in awe of your stash, and I really like your journal page.Those sunsets are fab. So many people don't look up and see the sky.It is so calming and centring to stand and gaze for a while.
Love hearing what our workmen talk about.Pokemons are the rage here at the moment.people going off to find them in all sorts of places!

I do like looking at pictures of sun raising & setting . I colours & patterns the sun makes across the sky is amazing & so different every time.
Happy crafting .

You must be super fit to craft on the floor. Wish I could - when I get down it is a mammoth task to get up. Love the sunsets so thank you dear Helen for sharing them on this blog. Just wish I could capture on on canvas with my paints.
Hugs, & Thanks for visiting me earlier, Neet xx

Love your paper-piecing patchwork page (sorry, I needed that alliteration!). The colours are fabulous, and the stamping works brilliantly. I hope you enjoy your new stamps as much as I enjoyed those spectacular sunsets.
