Happy WOYWW lovely people!  Very excited about the ATC swap, especially as it's my birthday on the 27th May... so I'm going to count the ATC's as extra birthday goodies!!  :)

Here is today's photo of the desk... poor quality, sorry, taken across the room from my bed (where I seem to be installed for the day) 

Let's see... pile of seam binding, alphas, started LO, mess, photos of my nephlet (ain't he scrummy?!), beautiful tulips, mug that I totally copied Julia on, blanket over work chair because, well, it's just been a bit of a blanket-y week!

Thanks for stopping by, I'll try and get to you if you leave me a comment - health depending


  1. I'm excited about the ATC swap too as I usually swap with many...think I'd best make some sooner rather than later this year as our house move should be some time between now and then!!! :-)

  2. That looks a cosy corner to work in! Cute nephlet too! x Jo #60

  3. Sorry to hear you're not too well, Laura, and hope you feel better soon. Despite this, your desk looks nice and active! Thanks for your visit and comment - I am feeling a lot better throat-wise although still coughing, but energy levels are poor I'm afraid. Lots to do to catch up, and I can't seem to apply myself!! Glad you like my card.

    Happy WOYWW,

  4. Sorry, totally drawn to the blanket - is it a Liverpool blankie, may I ask?? As a proud supporter myself, I notice such things :)
    Happy WOYWW!

    1. It is indeed, we have only the best blankets in this house ;)
      It has seen me through many winters and even lay out as some kind of good luck thing / shrine in 2005!!

  5. Love your list including 'mess':)

    Hope you are soon feeling like you can do a bit more, especially crafting.

    Take care. Sue 59

  6. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! Wonderful desk, so bright~

  7. I keep a blanket on my chair, too! I like your work space. Anxious to see your layout! Sharon, #95

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
