WOYWW 264 just a quickie

Hi Peeps
This is going to be the quickest desk show and tell I have posted for ages.... its Tuesday night and I need to go to bed see....
 Julia   our blog hopping controller likes it that way too ... lots to get round, see.
visit her do........... its great fun and she's been poorly sick lately.
Hope you are feeling better Julia and enjoying the sunshine.
Anyway my desk......

It was a lovely sunny day today .... not good crafting weather with 3 year old GD.
So not much to see now... DLP journal at the back .....  with a very old recipe book I am going to cut up to add this week.

A finished page for the journal. stamping in a new way.... into thick paint over and over again.
Below is the most excited thing on my desk this week..... handyman surprised me with it for our Wedding Anniversary.... 35 years!!!!!

A new A3 wireless printer ... exciting. and he even fitted it up form me.... he's a lovely handyman!!!
 I will try and visit as many as possible when I get home from work ..... oh and after I have caught up with the tennis. See Ya


  1. Nice giftie from Handyman. congrats on the anniversary and have fun in the sun - not sure about cutting up the recipe book, to be honest. I have an old 1930s one from my grandmother, when she purchased her fridge/freezer and it is a total HOOT to read. Might scan the images but not sure I could actually destroy it. I love old cook books..."boil on the stovetop for 2 hours" as a suggestion for cooking green beans??? OMG and LOL all at once.


    Happy WOYWW!

    1. I am with you, Mary Anne. I cannot bring myself to cut up books, but I do have a number of very tired paperbacks ready to be consigned to the rubbish bin so I could use those. xx Maggie #60

  2. ooh, a very lovely Handyman - congratulations!! Love the journal, fantastic indeed. Happy WOYWW Helen 5

  3. I would love a wireless printer - lucky you. Congrats on the anniversary to you both. When you have time hyou must tell us more about this stamping into thick paint, looks good on that page.

  4. Hi,

  6. LOVE Mary Anne's comment above! My MiL used to boil sprouts for 3 hours......mmmmmm, tasty ;-)
    I don't know if I could tear up the book either but it'll probably make for a great journal!
    Hope that you are feeling better too, btw.....
    Hugs, LLJ 16 xx

    1. I have only just started to eat sprouts again after I discovered that if they were not boiled to a much, they actually taste quite good, especially roasted with chestnuts and a bit of garlic. xx Maggie #60

  12. Ohhh an A3 printer how lovely. Have fun with it.
    I know what you mean about the weather and crafting, it's really hard when you have stuff you must do and the sun is shining...and now of course there is the tennis too, just too many distractions, lol.
    Hugs Lisax #38

  13. What a wonderful present! You are going to have a great time. Think of all the wonderful things you will create with that. I look forward to seeing the results very soon. xx Maggie #60

  14. Hi Jan, congratulations on your Wedding anniversary, and what a fab gift! I have some really old cookbooks, but I'm afraid I'm another who couldn't take them to bits, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #35 xx

  15. You have your Handyman well trained. Would love one of those!

  16. Hi Jan, congrats on the wedding anniversary. I have a wireless printer but A3 now that's extra special, fab!
    If you get some off white paper and scan the old books you can soon make the pages look old then you still have the book to use again.
    Happy crafting, Angela x #43
