I took this picture last night. I had been working on the dining room table , cutting the pages of my 8 page journal creation (inspired by Niamh Baly), but the light went so I had to move into my craft room where I have a space with that excellent 'two bulbed' lamp.
If you have been reading some of my April posts you will know that when I saw
Effy's Blog Along I thought I would share some 'diary' posts, along with some of the crafty things I have been doing. To be honest I blog something most days (currently April posts =56, March = 60) but usually the posts just feature a crafty item. These 'Blog Along' posts and the 'What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday' posts tend to be more personal.
This is also my desk picture for WOYWW 621! As it is Wednesday again, I am linking to the Stamping Ground. I usually manage to comment on all the desks - but usually later on in the week! If you want to know what WOYWW is all about please follow the links.
I thought I would show you how far I have got with the Niamh Baly set. To start off though this is the journal I am using - it is a Strathmore - about 8 by 10 inches.
I decorated the cover with Scribbly tiles (from a workshop by Kate Crane). My yellow random lines turned out not to be so random!
My finger really hurts having done the cutting of 8 pages. Now I have to add words - I am still thinking about that. But this is how some of the pages worked:
I was delighted that the washi tape came off easily - it had been on for weeks!
Another of my 'desks':
I was attempting to repair a 50-something year old Womble that my daughter inherited, whilst watching television. Also continuing with my crochet...
We are about at the end of our first month at the market. We have at least broken even, selling some of my craft and upcycled items.
To help stock the stall we tend to trawl the charity and antique shops. And end up buying things WE need. Last week we picked up a fan heater (it is getting very cold these evenings!) and today a standard lamp which will be good next to my chair! I have now fixed the ribbon on the typewriter I picked up a couple of weeks ago - the intention is typing some word strips for my journal.
