WOYWW

Happy Wednesday everyone, well not for people trying to join in at 5pm for two hours, they are disabling upload photos for maintenance, what are they thinking about its WOYWW, dont they know what they are doing, millions of (hundreds ok then tens of) crafters will be trying to put their post up, whats wrong with the middle of the night . . . doh.

OK rant over, I would now like to submit my desk for inspection, ta da . .. . .
and its taken today,as I am off for the week, am loving it, trying to finish my entry for Craft Stamper and then found Ive got to write something as well, aarrggghhh, anyway this desk shows me ignoring the dealine fast approaching and doing a new journal page, its to be happier than the one in the post below (yesterday), but I might have gonna a bit bright and need to knock it back a bit, here is a close up, with a flash to show glittery pen, (im no fool).......

And also I have been doing some spending this week, and this is a photo of my purchase from TK Maxx, I think Minxy has one on her door, and I decided if Minxy can have one then so can I, gonna make it an art display, copying Minxy again, love you Minxy hope you are feeling better.

Now I have been having a wardrobe clearout this week and found a beautiful dress of mine, simular size to this, that I used to fit in,  boohoooooooooo, why cant I be slim again, nurse at GPs makes it all sound so simple to lose weight, but it s not, every morning I wake up positive and by lunchtime its all fell by the wayside and I grab whatever I can to eat with no thought for goodness or badness.  I even used this to photograph some dresses Im gonna sell on ebay, (very clever of me if I say so myself), they looked good, unlike what they look like on me, thats if I could get into them, double grrrrrrrrrrrr.

So anyway went to ASDA clothing this week and got some great jewellery bargains for altering (see post below) and bought some bra's cheap, whoop whoop mine are normally £20+ and some trousers, now Im thinking I bought them because I could do them up rather than for the style factor, so as Im going into Maidstone today shall see if  I can get something a bit more stylish, though we have to face facts girls, you cant dress up a sows purse (or something like that).  I am however quite cheerful about it,  A) because Im spending money and B) because thats all Ive got to work with for the moment.

However I am meeting the great Tim next Feb ( just to remind you all) and I think he deserves to meet a slimmer me, so I shall see what I can do, watch this space.

And finally, for those that have asked about my ink pad storage, it was another Charity shop find and I think it must have been a cassette holder, but it is ideal for ink pads and for DI's there is space for your cut n dry as well.

Right sorry its only been a quick one this week, LOL, enjoy and dont forget your linky no.

Love the mannequin. Great idea to use it to sell your clothes. You have a great attitude toward the clothes. I would be stressing, but you are taking it in stride. And by the time you meet Tim, maybe you WILL be slimmer. There is always the power of suggestion. Happy WOYWW (no. 12).

A pretty journal page and a great buy! If you want to lose weight, you can try drinking a lot of water before meals. It makes sense, doesn't it? All for Tim!? Patsy #3

Love that mannequin - I've thought of buying one to display little charms and the like.

I like your journal page and the glittery circles do show up.

Don't mention losing weight to me - it just makes me want another bag of salt and vinegar crisps!

Blueberry Moonlight said...

Your journal page is really lovely.

I got one of those dress frames last year, the design of the dress on mine is pulled in at the waist and sort of fishtail at the bottm. I covered mine in tiny faux diamond gems. I'm such a sparkly girly girl lol!
Thanks for the peak at your desk.

Pretties! Love the journal pages, including the sad one (perhaps it helps to get it down on paper? - hope so anyway). And the mannequin is gorgeous. Bernie (126)

Great journal page, know what you mean about the diet, I've just put 4 stone on, but my excuse is the steroids, ha ha.

Doone said...

darling, I don't think I can make PPCs tomorrow - but I have asked Lizzie(www.iwant2dosomething.blogspot) to try to co-ordinate a kentish craft clan gathering for early next year, I am still struggling a bit after Sarah's death - so I have just been fairly reclusive during my stay down here this week and only kept to long standing arrangements - but we shall meet and it will be huge fun....

just read yesterdays post - my youngest went mad at me for doing a similar thing and I never saw a school missive again - thought my sour comments had doen the trick but NO i learnt recently he expertly forged my signature from that point on - and pretended to his friends that he was an orphan and that his guardians worked for MI5 and so had to remain anonymous

Ach don't be too hard on yourself, your talents lie in a different direction that's all, like those wonderful journal pages, and yesterdays post too which had me laughing out loud!
