Well, it seems I missed out on all the fun celebrating the second anniversary of Julia’s brainwave that is WOYWW. I really cannot complain though as I was away having a lovely time with family in the beautiful sunny Mediterranean island of Cyprus.
I didn’t miss out on everything though as I joined in with the PIF (pass it forward) element of the celebrations thanks to Julia who very kindly passed my gift onto another WOYWWer and in return I received a gift which was waiting for me on my return home last week.
This is what I received from Jude
- a fabulous altered frame containing all sorts of loveliness. As I told Jude. vintage sewing / dressmaking is one of my favourite themes so I absolutely love my gift! Thank you again Jude if you’re reading this.
I haven’t yet heard from the recipient of the gift I made and I know it’s travelling some distance so won’t say who it’s going to just in case they read this post - don’t want to spoil the surprise!
It’s a doll - no really? Yes, it’s made from mountboard using the template
from The Enchanted Gallery. Her face is made from a mould with air dry clay. Her body is covered with Decopatch paper and her hair is from a woollen scarf. Our PIF gifts had to include somewhere on them the acronym ‘WOYWW’. On mine it can be found on the bunting the doll is holding - she is joining in the celebrations by waving her bunting and ric rac around!
Bravo to Julia! Long may WOYWW continue!
Since I’ve been home I haven’t done any crafting so there isn’t anything on my desk to show. There is however, this box of ProMarkers.
I bought some new packs the other day in Hobby craft - only because they were on offer (you know how it is!) I already had two sets and with my new ones that made five sets altogether. How to store them? My original ones were in a jam jar, but there were now too many to fit in and I didn’t really want yet another jar to the large collection already on my desk. I had a hunt around our garage and found an empty Ferrero Rocher box into which all the pens fitted nicely.
Of course, I now can’t buy any more Promarkers (no room to store), unless of course I also buy another box of Ferrero Rocher!
Sounds like a genius plan to me!
How do you store yours (pens that is!), I’d love to know.
Thanks for visiting and I’ll try to get around to as many desks as I can - having finished all my ironing yesterday, I can browse guilt free …. just got to go and do a bit of shopping first.
See you later!
