Well, it's been a while since I last blogged.  I guess you kind of expect that from ME sufferers!  But I am back and delighted to be joining in with WOYWW again...  I've missed you!

Here is my mess desk! 
I have an order for 24 Christmas cards so I have been trying to get started.  To be honest there has been a lot of pushing stash from one side of the cutting mat to the other!  I have 4 done-ish...
There are a few other half done projects, lots of lists, and lots of 'stuff' as well.
So, no special post for my 100th post but I'm sure I will do something special soon.  Maybe 111?  Just to be different!  ;)
Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Hope your ME stays under control, so you can get your orders done.

  2. Congratulations on your 100th post. Sorry to hear you haven't been so well, hope you keep better now enabling you to get that order completed. Love your tower of washi tape - very colourful. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #75

  12. Hi Laura,

    Congrats on 100 posts! Way to go. I've been sporadic about blogging lately too. Sometimes life just takes over.

    I enlarged your photo and the tags look great - are they part of the Christmas cards that you are making? How great to get a special order. Although I think I'd crack under the pressure.

    Thanks for visiting me already!!!

    Happy WOYWW
    Hugs, kay #5

  13. Hi, Laura, lots of goodies to look at on your desk today. I like the snowman tags, the spool of washi tape, and the cards with ornaments on them. Happy crafting and happy WOYWW! ~ Laura #117 (Thanks for visiting me!)

  14. Lol! I just realized that after I clicked on your picture to make it bigger, I kept putting my mouse arrow on the edge trying to see higher or lower! You know it's a good WOYWW post when you do that!

    You've got some great makings for your cards there, Laura! Thanks for coming by to see me earlier. I hope you feel well enough to jump on those cards and not let them get away again until they're done! Darnell #42

  15. Yay 100th, that's fab! Desk looking creative, hope you get your cards done, I'm having to step back this year and only make a select few, everyone else will have to put up with bought ones!Take care Zo xx 82

  16. Sorry you've been absent because of your M.E., Laura - same here. It's a pain, isn't it. Glad you're feeling sufficiently better to do some stuff again. Your desk looks nice and busy and lived-in, though.

    Thanks for your visit, and glad you like the art journal page and the "diddy Shoshi" pics lol lol!! I have changed just a little since those days!

    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Shoshi #28

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
