WOYWW #114

Julia is working with glitter this week... something I avoid as much as I can as my past experiences with glitter have not always been pleasant *lol*
I'm still trying to find time to fill my Christmas Mini with photographs... but for some reason I've had a seriously bad urge this past week to clean my house and any crafting projects have been put at the back burner.  This is NOT a good thing *lol*
I have had time to go shopping though... craft shopping of course!
I bought the Donna Salazar "Creative Page Tabs" from Spellbinders, another dream-catcher kit for my mum (who is going to fill the centre with tatting lacework instead of the cord), and the most beautiful papers from Grant Archival - it's the Vintage Collection designed by Grace Taylor (all bottom right).
I managed to pick up some punches very cheaply - X-Cut "birdsong" circle cutter, a Fiskars lacy-edge circle cutter, the X-Cut "looped fringe" border punch and a 3" scalloped oval punch also from X-Cut. I paid less than £20 for all four!
Eldest daughter Naomi came over and done a little bit of crafting with some "Gor Guss" pyramage projects, just visible at the top right of the photograph. She doesn't actually want to keep them to do anything with... she just likes to sit and craft when I'm at the crafting table too.
I enjoy the company though... crafting can be a lonely past-time when the children start leaving home.

Well, that's all from me on this glorious Wednesday... here's hoping ALL of you have a wonderful day, and a wonderful week full of crafting fun!

Well done on the bargain hunting! The Gorjuss girlies are fun to play with so I can see where your daughter is coming from - housework though, what's that?! :) Dixxi

I love seeing your craft/scrap table on Weds. especially when it's not neat. So many goodies to look at, great job on the shopping. My desk is a mess for now too but once the kids go back it will be cleaned off and used for scrapping again. I can't wait only 13 more days.

Shopping is good! Especially if its for craft stash!
Happy WOYWW

Your bargain hunting powers are second to none! Isn't it funny how you didn't have time for crafting when the kids were at home and now they've left you miss them!!

PS. You can come and do my housework if you're still in the mood!
