WOYWW 232 happy birthday gorgeous

Hi Peeps
Every week we all say "where does the time go" and "Wednesday again?" etc..... and every week its true.
 Beware this is a photo heavy post.
Anyway my not much on my  desk this week. . .  there has been but I've finished it all. . .  no not the Christmas cards (still not started them yet). for all the WOYWW details visit Julia, the  hostess with the most-est. Hostess with the most-est

Here you can see some Christmas envelopes ready for the cards I haven' t made yet... Mmm
 My little helper has been at it again with the roller stamp thingy. Not much else.

 Yesterday was my gorgeous handyman's birthday so I was busy making him stuff.
This is the card I made him along with my little helper from last week (his age is in there somewhere)
I had some happy mail from a craft stamper giveaway this week,  it arrived a bit late for Halloween

our name is Batten  and he is also know as battman, so I made him this

Last week I mentioned I brought some amazing tape. Quite  a few of you asked about it so here are the details

This is a non sticky adhesive tape made from plastic a bit like very thick cling film that can be re used. It clings to itself. I have been using it on my threads to keep them tidy ....

 From this ...

 to this, much neater huh

Before I go I just want to ask everyone please take a few moments to send some positive energy to all the victims of  the terrible typhoon in the Philippines. hopefully help and supplies will reach those in need as soon as possible. especially thinking of  Patsy and Peggy who live there but are ok.
You can also help by donating even the smallest amount here or at any bank in the UK

  4. Great cards, imaginative and personal and I hope "Im indoors" will have a very Happy Birthday.
    I will add that tape to my list for when I go to Harrogate next week to the "Threads" show and hope someone sells it. I have been trying to think of a solution for my oft tangled crochet threads. Thanks for the tip..

    Thanks for visiting my desk, the Dr Who lakeland mould you mentioned is exactly what I used (but not for food as well!!).

  19. Oh gee, now I have to go see Kyla's Dr. Who mould . . . anyway, great card, lots of fun! And some great happy mail, even if it's a little past time.

    Thank you for stopping by this woyww, Janet, I always appreciate your visits!


  20. You are amazing! The sale is on at the end of the month, but I'll need a couple of days to get them up to the hospital in advance of it, thank you so much.(The sale is not in the hospital Eddie says that the hand made items sell faster than donated unwanted gifts.
    How will you make the bottle top dec for the tree, let me know. If you want any bottle tops I've got some to spare with getting them from the cafe.
    love Jo... rushing.... we are going on a Birds of Prey Experience today... I'll hold owls and hawks!!!
