Happy Wednesday Deskers!

My week has been  r e a l l y   s l o w.  The M.E. is being a right whatnot and today my legs have decided they don't want to work.  I'm bruised but not defeated, and have made it to my desk to take a photo.  That's an achievment in itself so I'm not worried that there is no actual crafting happening.

What is going on?  New ribbons, just released waiting to be made in to samples; notebook and notes - note that the note is not in the notebook... sigh; new batteries for my hay fever nose prong thing.

The new ribbons are wedding themed and are really rather nice.  I'll let the ideas form whilst lying down waiting for some energy!

Hope to see you at your desks...
Thanks for stopping by


  1. Sorry to hear your ME is so bad at the mo.....we have a young friend back on two crutches and at time needing her wheel chair with the same at the mo....wonder if it's the weather? Really hoping your energy levels pick up again very soon so you feel able to create.
    Thanks for popping over to mine earlier....really appreciate the effort it must take....and I just hope if I'm altering in my sleep that I'm getting slimmer ;-)
    Big healing hugs,

    The new ribbons look scrummy.

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
