woyww 296 Snow ... what snow

Hi Peeps..
Well this morning was exciting ( I know..... in southern UK  we are easily pleased)
we had snow ..... not much but enough for Erin to throw a few snowballs at Grandma (me).
Ok I have just realised ... that was Tuesday ...... I am writing this Tuesday eve (working all day Wednesday) but I will be  doing the rounds as usual in the evening via the stamping ground and head desk hopper Julia I hope you are keeping snug and warm. Me I feel like hibernating

Not much activity on my desk this week ...even if there are 3 pairs of scissors.... you can see my journal pages for this week..... using underpaper and the prompt is 'what lies beneath'
it would take too long to explain my prompt page .... so I wont! intrigued.... don't be its not that interesting.
 The  sewing machine has seen some action ..... I finished the dress I stared for  Erin a couple of weeks. but she didn't want to model it. I also made a beads of courage bag with the spare fabric.... these bags are for child cancer patients to put their special treatment beads in.

For those of you who visited last week .... here are my fairy lights..... they aren't just for Christmas you know....... and are cheap on electricity too.

 Anyway that's all from me for this week so please leave a comment so I can visit you back,

  1. I wasn't particularly excited by the snow, but luckily it went during the day!! may be getting more though, oh well, that's winter for you!! Great desk - shame Erin wouldn't model her new dress for us! Helen 8

  2. I love the fairy lights and those journal pages look fantastic. Snow, we are into summer here but it feels like autumn and I just want some heat, we need summer. Snow is nice to visit but to have it in your everyday life I just can't imagine that. Happy WOYWW

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 21

  3. It must be get your sewing machine out week as I fid the same this week! How kind you make the little cancer bead bags!

    Some great things on your desk as always . Happy woyww Jill #22

  5. I'm whizzing round all my fav blogs while the twinnies play with the Knex by me 😃
    I love your Fairy lights clever. You sound to have had a busy week too.
    Hugs Annie x #15

  6. What a wonderful thing to do making little cancer bead bags - I'm sure some little girl will absolutely love that fabric! The fairy lights are looking lovely, I'm a big fan of fairy lights all year round too. Hope you have a great week,

  7. I would be very excited to see a little snow and share it with your special little helper. The bead bags look great and what a wonderful cause. No.. I didn't make my journal for DLP but keep hearing about it on other blogs. Will have to check out what it is all about. Did you bind your journal.... I get into such a muddle with the binding, but pleased with the end results.

  8. We have plenty of snow and very cold temps here at the moment and I'll happily share them with you! In fact, you can have it ALL!!! The sun is trying to shine for us, so I'll keep checking on it. So dreary in Germany during the winter months!! Great job on the dress and your journal pages. Have a great week and God bless!

    Happy Crafting!

  9. Ha,ha I had a laugh at your excitement for the bit of snow you had! Here in Kent we had a few flurries but they didn't stay on the ground long enough to make a snow ball. At home in Slovenia they have about 20 inches though, so I am lucky to have escaped that!
    Love the little bead bag!
    Lots of hugs,

  10. I'm in Kent - the car did not like the little bit we had yesterday. it got me to the school to drop my daughter off and then died. Cue panic! It must have just been the damp or cold though as a bit of revving (and threats) it started and got me to my own class, I did get worried when I spotted more snow coming down while I was in there! Nothing here now though. Just sun. And cold.

    Loving your desk - especially those little drawing peeking out from under your book :)

  11. No snow here on the coast, but the mountains look pretty spectacular!
    I like the bag you have made - what a lovely idea. The page looks fun. Enjoy filling it in.
    Take care. God bless.

  12. Hi Janet, love the colours on the journal page! Those bead bags are a lovely idea for the kids, very cool. Very little snow up here, just a light sprinkle every now and then. Have a great week, hugs, Shaz #16 xx

  13. Glad you are enjoying the snow. We had a little bit last week and it's been so cold that it's still hanging around in corners.
    Love the look of your pages and what a lovely idea the beads bag is for the children.
    Love your fairy lights!!
    Hugs Lisax #68

  14. Okay, those fairy lights are so cute--love those!!! And had to enlarge the photo to see your pages up close, such a dreamy kind of effect, and all the lovely colors.

    #67 this week with the
    finished chair & a chalkboard

  15. That's a really good prompt! My mind went into overdrive ......
    Love the little bag, bring a smile to someone's face.
    Have a good week.

  16. It was a surprise wasn't it, getting up yesterday and drawing the curtains on a white stayed until about mid afternoon with us and is still there in the shade of the garden.
    Love your little bag for the beads, such a great cause to make for,..well done you :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 26 xx

  17. Love the little dress. Sewing for me is only for emergencies...that is what you will find on my desk right now. Repairs! Yuck. But they must get done. Then I can reward myself with some crafty stuff. Yum. #56

  18. LOL, I like your sense of humour! I'm sure I would find the explanation behind your journal page interesting! We've got fairy lights all over the house as well. It helps overcome the darkness for the whole winter not just at Christmas time. We usually take them down around spring and put them back up in November. Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle# 34

  19. Your paper fairy lights are so cool. The look like real dimensional bulbs. Love visiting your desk with your journal and bits and bobs out. Mine's boring this week... haven't done much except tidy. Judy #79

  20. Your journal pages look interesting. Happ0y WOYWW! #80

  21. We have rain and snow moving in overnight. I don't expect any accumulations as we are in a valley. Love your desk and those lights are so nice...may just have to string some of my own. Great idea!
    Glenda #48

  22. I like the snow and the dogs love it too but it can cause problems I realise. Just a little bit is nice though. Happy crafty week, Angela x 33

  23. Wow! Look at all of those stamps and ink pads! Wooo weee! I bet you have a lot of creative fun with those. :)

  24. We had about an inch of snow here up North. Great start to your journal page. I still have to start mine for the under paper prompt. Thank you for visiting my blog. Anita 49

  25. I love the fairy lights - I invested in some little paper lanterns, and they look cute, too, at night when it's all dark and miserable outside. Glad you finished Erin's dress, and the bags are a great idea. Have a wonderful week, Chris # 11

  26. Fairy Lights.....???? Will now that is that idea for sure! Sounds like you've been hard at it to me, finishing a dress, and bag too. Then the Journal pages, plus all the other things you have going...
    I'm pooped out just thinkin about it allllll.....

  27. Keep that snow to yourself Mrs!!
    I too have fairy lights in my craft room..well they are flowers so not christmassy at all and they do cheer me up when I am home alone!
    PS I just realised I was not a follower so remedied that!!
