About Me

My photo
I retired on March 11th 2014 after 26 years as a doctors receptionist. I am now looking forward to the freedom to enjoy my days doing anything I wish to. Spending time with family, catching up with friends. Playing in my Scrappy Shack, scrapbooking, cardmaking, art journalling, quilting, gardening, baking. Spending wonderful times with my beloved other half. I am so looking forward to this time in my life.

Happy WOYWW now pop over  to Julia and wish her well as she fly's out to her poorly papa.

The World is NOT Coming to An End...honest.... really....oh well don't believe me if you don't want to..

The Scrappy Shack is Clear and ready for Action....No No Nooo Do Not Panic.
If you felt the earth move it may have been me, I have been in there for four and a half hours and it is looking pretty good. My back is broken but the shack looks great.  Thanks to the advice a a little help from my darling the floor can now be seen and I can stand at the work desk and I may even get some crafting done in there before the day is done.

Trouble is I cannot find my camera to take photo's to prove it, but there are still a few hours left of the day, I may still get them posted.....Watch this space.

Found my camera..here is the proof:

 I cannot believe the workspace and floorspace I have now.
The question now is: How long will this last?

Let's wait and see.

Thanks for visiting.

Don't all faint with shock, yes this is inside my 
Scrappy Shack 
instead of my kitchen.
I am finally able to get to the workspace, but I have a serious problem with too much "Stuff"
These two little treasures were bought up at one the antiques shops up at Lady Heyes.
The little cabinet in the front I have had my eye one for about five weeks.  So when it was still there last weekend I decided it needed to come home with me and have a little alteration or two done to it.
When I get round to it is another matter!!!

The wooden contraption behind it is a little treasure my husband found a few weeks ago in the same antiques place.  It is a guillotine, and a very good one at that.  I used it for cutting card for wedding invitations and it was superb. It is over 80 years old too.

If you want to see some superb work desks pop across to Julia's Place and have a nosy, it is okay to be  nosy today. It is all done in the best possible taste as the late lamented Dick Emery would say..

Well I am not sure I  really deserve this as an irregular contributor but keen lurker on WOYWW.
Though I do believe this will be a talisman that will enable the MOJO search to step up a level.  Come back next week and see if it  deserves the faith I have in it. My begging skills got me the badge, now I need to get the creative juices going. The Goddess of the badge is here, go visit, see and feel the power.
