Brrr!  It's definitely staying in and crafting weather here at Crazy Towers.  It is also staying in and catching up on the cleaning that hasn't been done since I was first feeling poorly at Christmas!  I'm feeling much better now after all your kind wishes and a course of antibiotics and a steroid nasal spray - yuk!

I've been busy in my craft room this week - putting things away and getting other things out!  Top left is the rest of the decoupage from last week.  After the super speedy card I thought I may as well make a couple more with the rest of the kit.  Central is my current album with the beginnings of my One Little Word project.  I am loving using Simple Stories Daily Grind for this - isn't that rainbow chevron paper just amazing!  I've also still got my Christmas stuff on the go in my cake stand to the right and then a new project beginning to the left.  That collection is Echo Park's For the Record 2 and I've pulled that out for Shimelle's class that starts this week called Return to The Collection.

Some of the things I have put away this week include my Christmas and birthday presents.  The Promarkers are in their new aluminium case and next to that is a very solid glass photo frame with a pic of Miss Bella in a rugby shirt and tutu!  That pink box there came inside a vanity case at Christmas filled with Soap and Glory bath stuff.  I love the box and the vanity case and the bath stuff - everyone's a winner!
The last new addition there is a pink glass cake stand which was a birthday present from a very good friend.  I put it together but it needs a little adjustment and it being glass and me being accident prone, I thought it a job for Management :-)

I'm gradually finding my feet again so I hope to be able to visit a few more desks this time on our weekly nose around crafty areas.  Why not join in?  Its fun and easy - just link up with Julia over the Stamping Ground for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Bye for now


  1. Love the chevron paper too. I've signed up for Shimelle's course too but not done anything yet. Hope to get on top of things tomorrow.

  2. Hooray, glad you're on the mend! It took a while to shift it but hopefully you'll be snot free for a good time to come!
    Love all your crafty bits and bobs today, especially that zigzag paper! I can see why you commented on that jelly roll strip of mine last week must be in a chevron state of mind. What a good title for a song there :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 38 xx

  3. I'm so glad you are feeling better at last, it's miserable to feel so bogged down in feeling rubbish!
    Mmmm I have my eye on that chevron paper, love the colours, it would look lovely in my Project Life pages, what make is it?

  5. I'm glad you are feeling better.

    Yep, that would be me too. Anything in several bits, with the potential to go wrong, I hand it over and let someone else put it together. It's safer that way

  6. good to hear you are feeling better. Loving the pink glass cake stand x

  7. I'm so pleased to read you're feeling better, and label to play with your birthday goodies. It's great seeing another view of your creative space

  8. Lots of lovely goodies there - I still need to sort out my Christmas crafty gifts too.

  9. I'm so glad you're feeling better. Love all the crafting goodies on your desk. #2

    Happy Woyww,
