Wednesday again - it can't be - I'm not ready!!!!!! Well technically it's Tuesday Night but not long to Wednesday and WOYWW. If you don't know about this highly addictive, weekly perusal of blogs ( and desks)  of crafters around the world then pop over toJulia's Blog and find out all about it.

I have started to do a little more card making ( though bought all birthday cards I needed for this month - as I am trying to keep calm ) - only small ones and all thank yous made from snippets.

Have been continuing with Documented Life Project. I'm a little behind but that's ok I will catch up eventually and I am enjoying doing it at my pace/my way now. Will show you more at some point.

My desk, dining table, etc etc is awash with crafting materials / tools and so on. I have a box of goodies from Stampin'Up! that arrived Monday and I've not had time to check off yet. Yesterday we had granddaughter and I also had to go for an echocardiogram. Today I went to Sugar Craft and then lunch. Poor DH had to look after GD and sort out someone from company that makes the  central heating boiler ( new last August) which failed to come on this morning and last Monday. 'Muck' in the system apparently- we'll see. So to my desk.

A small section of the dining table where I've been working.

My actual desk - which is quite a small affair.In the pink bag at the back are some beads I want to make some more angels. Sewing bits and pieces in the pink box - have been sewing with Phoebe ( GD)

The little cards I made this week Very simple and at least I'm getting back into it!!!!
Have a great week everyone. I will visit all who visit me, those I follow and those ending with same number as me. x


  1. Great quick and easy cards. Hope all was well at the hospital.

  2. Well Anne, I see your desk and dining table are just the place to craft, every time I clean my work space it just gets cluttered again. But that is the fun of making crafts.

    Hugs Diane

  3. Visit me, visit me, visit me! Love the cards and especially the butterfly one, must try one like that, like your "Thanks so much" stamp too. BJ#??

  4. I'm glad to see you are pacing yourself and yet getting back to your craft you love so much. Take care of yourself and be happy. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  5. Good progress, Anne! Most of my day was focused on reading and writing with my oldest granddaughter, cuddling baby Rose, and catching little Joy before she ran amuck:) Wishing you well! xx

  6. Sounds like you're having a busy week. Hope all goes well and you get some creative time too.

  8. ECGs are never fun...hope you are ok after that. I love the fact that you craft so much with your grandkids. It's time and attention that they remember, isn't it?
    Now then Anne, I really love your new wellies from the previous post. They look as if they're mid calf which would suit my legs..please could you tell me what make they are? I'd be ever so grateful :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 45 xx

  9. Always good to have a lovely set of cards on the go. Simple is always best in my opinion.

    Happy WOYWW

  11. You can never go wrong with a Thank you card, they are always needed! Have a very Crafty week! Happy WOYWW?!

  12. Hi Anne,

    Great Thank You cards! I want to do A Documented Life project and hopefully will get started this weekend. I'm not going to try to keep up with the group and do it at my own pace and truly relax while doing it.

    Thank you for your visit already! I'm slowly making it around -- and now the numbers have changed so I'm having to hunt for people!
    Happy belated WOYWW
    peace, Kay (3)

  13. Glad you are "getting back into it" - love the cards - great start to the year. x Jo

  14. I like your cards very much Anne, it's no sin to buy a few and definitely important to keep calm about such things..just as with your Doucmented Life plans..entirely at your pown pace or apart from anything else, it jusr becomes a chore. I cant work out what the box of multicoloured boxes is..on your desk..could it be inkpads?

  15. Great CAS cards! Hope the heater issue has been sorted. Thanks for the earlier visit! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #9

  16. Great looking desks. Love the cards! It is always nice to have some cards on hand for when you need them! Have a great week and stay cool! Vickie #99

  17. Loving the cards, I am a less is more kinda crafter.
    Happy very belated WOYWW!
