Hi peeps
 Oh, the 5th WOYWW blogaversary is getting closer and I haven't  even thought about my ATC's yet as you will see on my desk..... nothing being made.... lots of mess so at least less boring than the last few weeks..... Ta Dah!
Hop over to Julia's stamping-ground.  to see what other happy crafters are up to. 

Here you can see... Left to right
Some handmade bias binding, old contact lens cases (great for mixing small  amounts of paint, inks etc), some MDF blanks awaiting .....altering!
The big pile of ribbons has been tipped out of its box, looking for a tiny piece of white ribbon to go on DD3 wedding dress, no .... I'm not making it. 
Anyway that's me done, well except for my little helper this week:

The happy painter
And finally my DLP journal Page for this week, we had to cut up a magazine and add to it. Some of you may know I am very fond of haberdashery .....and craft magazines, so here's the mix

I'm away to the seaside for a couple of days ... I will try and sneak a bit of blog hopping when handyman isn't looking, so you aren't forgotten I will visit you back, if you leave your number that is. 
Happy Wednesday


  1. Ohhhhh a trip to the sea side? That will help shift some of the Dad used to swear by fresh sea air to clear head colds :-) Have a fab time. Love your little helper pic :-)

  2. Oh I like that DLP page - so funky! I was only reading this morning how crafting, especially knitting and crochet is good for helping depression and keeping brains from aging. Well, WE could have told the 'experts' that!!

  3. Like the look of that binding - and how clever to find a use for the contact lens cases! Your helper looks adorable, have a great break! Have a great WOYWW, Cindy #59

  4. How sweet the little happy painter looks. I'll be seeing mine soon.... the Brighton Belles are coming to me over Easter and then soon after I go to visit the little Fraulein and Tiny Herr in Germany. hope you have a great mini break ... it's a great time of year.

  12. Happy WOYWW... Love your desk full of craftyness. It is always so much fun having little helpers, eh? See you next week.
    Kimmer #91... last , but not least AGAIN.. LOL

  13. Have fun at the seaside - we went to Clevelys for the day last week - very cold and bleak 10 degrees. It was 18 here in Shropshire with wall to wall sunshine! Hope its bright and cheery for you. Love your post this week. x Jo

  14. Well there's the understatement of the week...'very fond of'...yeah, like addicted to'!!!
    So glad to see you're back up and at it, and that Lovely Erin is filling your day too...what a sweet picture. As for ATCs...don't panic and me are at the same stage!!

  15. I have thought about the ATC's and have an idea, but so far nothing actually done. I think that panic might set in very soon. I love the picture of your helper, so engrossed in her work. Thank you for your visit, and I reckon the demonstrators are what make the show worthwhile. It was so noticeable that those who were demonstrating were the ones selling most. Have fun with all your ribbons and other haberdashery. xx Maggie #8 PS we no longer have a decent haberdashers even vaguely close to us, so I have to buy all I need online

  16. What a cute little helper you have! Sorry to be so very late this week, DH took me away for a few days on a spur of the moment trip.
    Happy very belated WOYWW!
