WOYWW 467

I am writing this early as I have a bit of spare time on Tuesday morning before going to a (routine) mammogram appointment (lovely, not, but necessary)  and my floor space won't change a lot before it's time to share it for WOYWW....

so last week I hadn't done anything for atcs for the anniversary swap next week, but that has all changed...
 ha ha!! not sharing yet!!

However, I have 8, so one for my swap partner, one for Julia, one for Jan, one for Annie and Jo as they have already offered to swap and sent me some last year when I didn't make spares (spot a theme here?!)  and that leaves 3 extras...


I have new goodies too....   I was watching a You Tube video a couple of weeks ago one Sunday morning, as I tend to, in bed... and don't ask me who, but I saw this fabulous Prima pad called Santorini which then just fell into my basket...


and a couple of days later I also finally checked out of my Amazon basket, the Neocolour IIs which also came super quick

I've had a quick play and so far am very impressed.
Happy week before the anniverary WOYWW... see you at Julia's!
I won't be going to Kew this weekend because I shall be glued to the TV for the Royal Wedding but if you need a fix here are last week's pics...  I took nearly 500 last week - it's getting hard to stop!   ( I know several of you saw them when I linked it on FB )

*  edit.   the mammogram went well, just need to wait for the results now... not expecting to get bad news as I've not noticed anything, but ....

I STILL haven't started my ATCs but this year I only plan to make one for my PIF partner and one for Julia. Like you, I will be watching the royal wedding. Meghan is such a big hit here in the states, and Harry is such a cutie, we are all wishing them happiness, unlike some of the vengeful media in the UK.

No number yet, but I do finally have my post ready.

Helen i'm so proud of your for checking out that amazon basket and really hope you have lots of creative fun with those neoII's as you know i'm very biased and I believe they were the very first artist quality tool that helped me on my journey many many moons ago!!
Well done on making a start on your ATC's and all the best at todays appointment.
Creative Hugs Tracey xx

Thanks Helen for telling me about the reflection. The white doors were stunning, just the wooden ones looked old and worn.

Neet said...

UGH to where you are going later.
Think I am up to date with your Kew visiting but will miss out this weekend because of the Royal wedding. I cannot watch it! Our silly craft club made one feel guilty with all its emails about "support" when it decided to hold its meeting on Saturday. I will just have to content myself with my recorded version (which will start at the beginning and go on to the end I can assure you - cannot miss it, not one little bit)
Hugs, Neet 7 xx

The Neocolors are great aren't they. Glad you are more on top with your ATCs this year. Mine are all allocated now but good luck with the rest of your swaps. Sarah #9

Julia Dunnit said...

Hurrah, ATCs done, see, a fit of deadline fever and it’s all done!! Your Kew photos were tremendous, I am transfixed by the restoration. We are away this weekend but I plan to watch as much as I can, royal weddings aren’t exactly regular! I’m not familiar with the Neocolours, might have to browse the colouring shelves more intently next time I’m in a suitable shop. I’m impressed by the tidiness 9f the space here, everything neatly stacked and lined up....are you in for a marathon session?!!

Annie said...

Wahoo ATCs made....and one with my name on....double wahooo. Yours are here ready and waiting too. Can you tell I’m excited? Royal wedding too....who doesn’t like a royal wedding?
HUgs,

Just saw that edit - thats was early! Not a great experience but better safe than sorry... Would love an ATC if there's a spare but no worries. I shall be travelling up to Evesham on Saturday, leaving early so hopefully we will get there in plenty of time to settle in and watch. Happy Wednesday, Cindy #16

Morning Helen. Of course I'll swap with you. Can you email me at margaret(dot)diddanfa(at)gmail(dot)com with your address and I'll let you have mine. Brilliant. Hope you have a good day. Mammograms - yuk! But I think I'm now of an age when I only have one more...
Take care. God bless.

Angela Radford said...

Hi Helen, I have a spare ATC if you want to swap but no problem if they are already spoken for just let me know. I'm off walking with the girls now so will pop back later for a better look at your desk. Happy woyww, Angela x23x

You're never quite certain until you get that all-clear letter after a mammogram eh? I do so hate that test but it's a necessary evil. Like your new stash, someone else was singing the praises of Neocolours, they certainly look great to use.

Hi Helen. Thanks for popping by. If well enough on Saturday I have a class- just didn't connect with the date :-( anyway will record and class should finish by 12 so will start to watch then. Had mammogram not long ago :-( all was good. Just back from GP - turns out I have a Urinary tract infection :-( Enjoy the weekend viewing. Anne x # 11

Hi Helen, fingers crossed for the results, always a bit of a worry waiting. Yes, love to swap. I have your addy, do you still have mine? Nice goodies there, I'm a fellow You Tube video watcher too- I often watch them at night, when Doug's on lates they get watched while I wait for him to finish. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz XxX #10

StampinCarol said...

Hope the results from your mammo is good! I won't be doing the swap as we are trying to get things together for a trip to our kids in a couple weeks, got OODLES to do! Great desk, lots of goodies on it! Have a great week and enjoy the wedding!

New toys are always fun! I wouldn't mind an ATC, I will return one to you. So far I have only made one, but I can make more! Have a great week, Lindart #31

Stacy Sheldon said...

Hi Helen, so funny true story after saying I am not shopping for the next little while, I stop by your blog. and I end up googling Neocolour lol... nope, I did not buy them they kind of remind me of some wax based watercolor crayons I have and I am not sure they are the same thing, I will have to look later when I get home. which made me think that I have not used watercolor crayons in a long time and I should dig them out soon :) love the color peeking through the sheet. ~Stacy #29

Heather Marshall said...

Hi Helen, hope the mammogram went ok. Not my favourite thing, but as you say it's necessary! Have fun with your new colours. Thanks for stopping by earlier, and have a lovely week Heather x #12

Diana Taylor said...

Lovely stash this week, the paper pad is very pretty and would have definitely ended up in my basket too! The Neocolour's I haven't tried but seen several people commenting on how good they are - something I need to investigate further I fear!
Hope you have a great week,
Diana x #18

Angie said...

Those youtube videos are dangerous, they somehow manage to cause you to shop. I always seem to find things in my shopping cart after watching them. Lovely new stash!
Thanks for visiting.

I'm late getting round desks again this week - just having a breather after watching the royal wedding before the cup final!! Looking forward to our ATC swap. xx Jo

Belinda said...

Oh I just watched the Royal wedding this morning and wow was it beautiful or what? Loved it! I like your happy mail. Never heard of those Neocolours before and I am thinking ignorance in this instance is a good thing for me. ha ha... Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by earlier this week.
