Happy Wednesday!  Happy WOYWW!

Yesterdays 'desk stuff' shoved to the side because...

the postie loves me!  Crafty Ribbons sale parcel arrived today.  [I wouldn't bother going to the link... we bought everything ;D  Just kidding!!  We left a few bits for you...]  The parcel was meant to be Mum's but she is too nice so I got some too.

We haven't even opened the ribbons yet as we got totally sidetracked by the yummy buttons that look like sweeties :)

Thank you for your WOYWW visits and thank you to Julia as always...

See you at your desk...


  1. Oh wow look at those yummy buttons....can I come to play please? :-)

  12. Happy WOYWW for yesterday Laura, thanks for visiting me! Love the buttons, I have a heap of ribbons from the sale here, not that I needed more ribbon, but can't resist a bargain lol.

  13. Wey hey, great buttons, Laura. My girls used to love playing with my mum's button tin - they came out on each visit. I have to say, though, they weren't as exciting and colourful as yours are!
    Thanks for your earlier visit. In answer to your question - yes, I got to choose the music for Sunday service this week. There is such a HUGE number to choose from, but it whittles down as I pray about it - only 5 this week as we have a visiting speaker - but, depending on what else is going on in the service there may be 6 or 7. I'm known for lots of songs - in fact, I was being teased about it at music practice this evening!! It is an awesome responsibility leading the worship, and indeed the service - but a tremendous privilege to hold a door open and offer folk the opportunity to enter into God's presence. It is so exciting watching God at work!!!
    Take care - and we appreciate your thoughts and prayers for hubby. He's getting there, but it wasn't good last Friday.

  15. Great happy mail, Laura! You are a girl after my own heart ~ I always sort things into their color families, too!! Happy Belated WOYWW! Enjoy your day! Darnell #12

  16. What a lovely lot of buttons to play with. I used to love playing with my grandmother's button tin, sorting them all into different colours etc. I suspect we never lose that love of playing with buttons. Have a great week. xx Maggie #24

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
