Gosh I seem to be doing well with posting on my blog this week :-)
 I had hoped to show you the quilt this week but have a little more left to do so will hang on a while. Mind you I'm a bit nervous about it as there are so many brilliant quilt makers on here. So Julia and Jan you have to wait a little longer. Also thanks for the good wishes for Mum. She is still not right but seeing GP again on Thursday.
I've also been managing to make a few cards and join in with some challenges - been enjoying that. Ages ago I said I was joining in with the Documented Life Project . I am rather behind with it - but not stressing, some of it is amateurish but I a enjoying experimenting.

Here are a couple of pages

I'm doing mine as an account of what happens during my week. I'd had my nails done on the Wednesday :-)
The challenge for that week was do something that you have been inspired by. I actually saw something on a box of tissues although what was in my head, on the box was nothing like this. I scrunched up a tissue and then sprayed with water and dropped ink onto it and let it dry. Then I stamped over it.

So to my desk - thought I'd show you my actual desk this week as well

The other side - promarkers, boxes of ribbons and embellishments. The picture with the shoe was a team gift at SU Convention. The other bits I've made . As you ca see my desk is not very big - hence why I use the dining table - below. It's quite tidy - well this bit anyway :-) 

 Can't show cards I've been making at moment until they have been received. I will visit as many other WOYWW'ers as I can. Want t know more ? go over to the lovely Julia's Blog  and join in ! See you next time. x


  1. Well, I propose that your desk is tidy because you use the dining table...I think you are darling would I. Think, pass out if I started to emigrate into another room!

  2. great looking desk and I love the organization! I don't know how people get by without the marker storage! We seem to be on a similar color scheme this week. I just felt with the warmer weather I wanted to see blues and greens! It worked with my dragonfly tag. Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving a comment and Thanks for sharing. Vickie #45

  3. I really love your pages in the first pic fav colour.

  4. The colours on the DLP pages are gorgeous, I love that teal colour..yum!
    And guess what? I have the same cooker as you but in black!! I love the ceramic hob and the oven cooks really evenly which is a bonus when you're doing a lot of traybakes! Any brownies left perchance??
    Hugs, LLJ 39 xx
    PS Am looking forward to seeing the quilt!

  5. Hi Anne - you are a very busy little crafter - so much going on - I love quilts and although I have never made one I know how much love and work goes into them. I am not sure how you are keeping so tidy with so much going on!!!! Have a great week and happy WOYWW to you from Helen 61 x

  6. What a gorgeous tip-in in your DLP, love it, wish I could have seen it closer. BJ#62

  7. Great idea - love those pages. Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #21

  8. Love those pages Anne! My guess is that you too have every Pro Marker in the range :)

    Happy WOYWW honey!



  9. Great work space there! I love the colour scheme on your journal - looks good to me! x Jo

  10. You always inspire me with how neat and tidy your art tools and materials are organized. I need to follow suit in my "office". Have a great weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  11. Anne! I am so excited to see your DLP! I am having so much fun in the little bit of art journaling I have done so far, and love that we share that interest, too! In two weeks I am supposed to meet my sisters in CA for a few days and I am hoping that while we are together we can put together more albums of the story of our parent's that our children and grandchildren can know more about them and their heritage. Wishing you happy days! xx

  12. I am praying for your mum! I love the diary you are doing..what a great idea...wish I had more time to try something like that. Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#95)

  13. Love your blue & green page, so pretty. Looks like lots of good busyness going on!

  15. Hi Anne just dropping in for a desk snoop - your's is looking pretty organised and I'm loving the colours and texture on your life pages. Have fun this week Cheers RobynO#38

  16. That's really lovely DPL pages you have created. I feel bad that your mother is still not well. With all you have going on, I don't see how you can make anything, especially something this lovely. Thanks for visiting me earlier today (because it's still Wednesday in my world) and happy WOYWW from #2.

  17. Anne, thanks for visiting me, we had a lovely day out on the boat, didn't want to come home, going out for longer on 30th.
    The colours on your DLP pages are wonderful and are they butterflies stamped in them? Beautiful.
