About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

Wednesday, 12 November 2014


Well, I've just fallen off my chair in shock at making it to blogland AT LAST!!!!!  Can't believe it has been so long and really do need to get into the habit of posting at least on a weekly basis when us WOYWW'ers meet up for a peek around each others desks.  
My intention when starting my blog was mainly to have somewhere to record the crafty things I get up to and then realised it was MY blog so didn't HAVE to be just about crafting so maybe I really also need to try and fill in the gaps between my weekly WOYWW posts ... time will tell I guess.
SO much to catch up on but will keep this brief or the FAB - U - LOUS Julia over at the Stamping Ground, and our host each Wednesday will throw rotten tomatoes at me and slap me across the cheeks with a wet trout ... cruelty to trout I say!
My desk is still piled fairly neat and tidy from last night when I crafted my little fingers off trying to catch up on my Christmas crafting - am way, way behind and will have to admit defeat at some point but am not going down without a fight!

Second photo' is stuff piled on the chair beside me as I always run out of room when crafting at the dining room table ... I like to think the restricted space keeps me tidy and focused but, in reality, it stresses me out and makes me cross.
Am currently calm and collected but have yet to pick up where I left off last night so there is time yet for the meltdown.  Will only be a mini-meltdown because I don't have time for a better one.
Must crack on - simply got to get these cards done today so I can then move on to next project on the list.
Happy WOYWW'ing everyone and if you want to check out what is going on this soggy, damp & grey Wednesday morning, then you can do so at The Stamping Ground


  1. Morning Debbie, You have been busy with the die cutter cutting all the poinsettia out & embossing them. Bet your arm ached. Happy woyww Jill #23

  2. Oh my you have been busy with the big shot..lots of lovely flowers there Debbie. Cheers and get to it with the Christmas cards RobynO#30

  3. You're so right, your blog is your space to do whatever you want to do with it! Don't you find that liberating! I do! I used to write for other websites where there were strict rules and guidelines - with moderators and automated robots telling you off if you deviated from the guidelines. I'd never go back there! Enjoy your blog! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #33

  4. Those decorations are fab, love the colour combination, quite different to the usual Christmas stuff. That lace next to it is rather gorgeous too, what are you going to use that for?
    And I never have enough room....ever. So you're in good company lol!!
    Hugs, LLJ 32 xx

  5. Hi Debbie - looks like you're doing really well on the Christmas front. Do show the finished projects, won't you?! Try not to stress, and be kind to yourself. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 7

  6. Hi Debbie, your post did make me laugh! Think you've summed us all up in a nutshell. Did you see last weeks WOYWW post about the Crop? 16th May? I do love all those black and white flowers. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #20 xxx

  7. I had no idea that Julia would result to the wet trout method. She's a rough taskmaster, that one! It seems like you are on the right track. Keep on keeping on and it just might all get done yet! Judy #73

  8. You say you're behind.... but I can see an enormous pile of embossed pointsettia's. Very beautiful, by the way!
    I hope you don't go into meltdown. Crafting is supposed to be fun!
    Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder,
    Have a good week,

  9. You are not the only one feeling a bit behind with christmas stuff. I just started, i am always late ...

  10. Restricted space stresses us
    Vast space stresses us (can never find what you want or it is just out of reach)
    We'll never be satisfied :D
    Happy Thursday! (sorry I'm late)

  11. Hi there and nice to meet you. I am new and getting acquainted with people and process. I appreciate your sharing.

  12. Lovely to read your blog and sorry I am late, I spend so much time on each blog and get waylaid but never mind. If you dont meet the deadline for this years crafty bits, just be ahead for next years. Hope you managed to finish what you wanted to do, I am looking forward to seeing what you were doing.
