WOYWW #412

Wednesday again... already!!! Well, Tuesday actually - but it's nearly Wednesday, and if I don't write this post now, I'll never have time lol
Nothing really lol
I'm looking through my computer at the digital papers I have, to start my Alice In Wonderland album... and have decided that I will be making at least two of them now. One will be black with blue and white (and a hint of red possibly) and another will be using a lot of browns and vintage/weathered looking papers and ephemera.
I can't actually take a photo of the computer on my desk.. as I use it to take the photograph(s) for WOYWW :)
So there it is - my almost-empty-desk ... one page started, the reverse of the box in the background and my glasses which I need to wear when I'm having a bit of a fibro-flare-up. Actually, I thought my eyes were particularly bad today, until my daughter pointed out that my glass lenses were dusty lol
I'm off to keep rooting through the thousands of digital papers I have, to find the best ones to use for this album :)
I hope everyone is enjoying the week so far - by the time you're reading this I shall probably be shopping at The Range with my mum - she is SUCH a bad influence so I shall be somewhat poorer in cash, yet richer in crafting goodies when I get home lol

I will add that last week I managed to visit everybody who played WOYWW... I don't think this week I shall be quite so organised - but I will try my best :)
Lastly... this week I shall be number.... 32. 
Mum WAS a bad influence, and now my purse is empty and my craft room a mess of acquired 'stuff' lol
But it was a good day - even if I am running late for this weeks WOYWW

Hi Bubbles, yes The Range can be quite hard on the pocket, lol. Hope you have had a good day though. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #1 XxXx

Your dusty glasses made me hoot!! I've done daft things like that before as well :-D I'm so glad your mum was a bad influence - you'll have to show us your new stash next week. The Range can be so tempting!

I so love The Range and nearly always find something interesting and as they sell good dog stuff too I can use that as an excuse to visit. We expect to see the results of your shopping next week....please! Thanks for the visit to mine, have a great week and a happy woyww, Angela x7x

Glad you had a great time at the Range, despite your mum being a bad influence! Getting new stash is always fun and uplifting, isn't it. I love your Alice themed stuff. Sorry the fibro makes your eyes bad. After my recent operation I kept checking to see if I'd got my glasses on or not, because my eyes were so awful - result of the drugs, I think. Half the time I thought I hadn't got them on when I had - they didn't really seem to make much difference! Cleaning them does help though, lol lol!! Thank you for your lovely comment, and I am thrilled that you thought my latest embroidered piece looked Judaic - I love all things Jewish! Sorry your kitty has been stress cleaning. Beatrice did that when I was having my chemo and lost all the fur off her back end - I kept telling her she didn't need to come out in sympathy with me, esp. as I didn't actually lose my hair with my chemo! Of course I don't mind you following my blog - quite the contrary, I am flattered! I shall return the compliment. Kitties seem OK today but Phoebe has lost quite a bit of weight and I hate to see her so thin. She is eating, though, little and often. Beatrice seems a lot better. Thank you for all your kind words!

Have a great week, and happy WOYWW,

Going through digital paper is probably easier than going through plastic containers of it. I have so much real paper. What am I thinking to buy so much of it! I even have some Alice in Wonderland 12x12 papers! :) Thanks for peek. I think I need to clean my glasses ! LOL Thanks for the earlier visit. #35

Dorlene Durham said...

I love that your mom is the bad influence lol. Enjoy your new treasures! Dorlene #33

Helen said...

Vicky Fisher said...

If you've finished your Alice in Wonderland books, do share, that idea is also in my head for quite some time. Love the back of that case with the playing cards. have fun using your new stash, thx for your visit, Vicky

Sue said...

Hi Bubbles, Looking forward to seeing your albums as they progress.

Hope you can get everything you bought in The Range in the car. You might have to make your mum walk home:) LOL

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Shoshi said...

Thank you for your return visit, Bubbles, and also for the excellent tips re the toilet roll innards - I remember now, using my Cuttlebug to flattent them last time I used them! A good tip to dampen them first, too. Must try this.

Your Mum is absolutely right to encourage you, it gives her pleasure to see you enjoying a hobby.!
Will be fascinated by your Alice progress, love the idea for the colour themes. It makes me squirm when my daughter has to point out something obvious like dusty glasses these days....feel I'm getting older when she starts to help!!!

Judys Lace Creations said...

I had a bit of a giggle about the glasses too. I once picked up Kev's glasses by mistake, and was peering at the computer feeling quite worried that my eyes just weren't focusing.I did have a cold, and thought my sight was affected.What a twit I felt when I found out ZI had the wrong glasses on.
That "Alice" album is going to be so much fun. Finding all the bits and pieces will be lovely!
Have a great rest of week.
Thanks for the visit.Yes cyclamen are lovely plants.They have so many types now. I still like the full blooms, although the new miniatures are pretty.

The Alice in Wonderland albums are looking amazing. I think we can all relate to mistakes like your glasses.

Lindart said...

Must be nice to go shopping with your Mum, mine hates shopping! And doesn't craft. Oh well, she does take me out to lunch though, which I do enjoy!Sounds like you will have lots to do in the near future! Thanks for your visit, Lindart #34

Stacy Sheldon said...

I grinned all across my face when you added in your mama is a bad influence... :) sometimes hubs and I joke that we have been married so long we no longer remember who is the bad influence and who is the dire warning. lol ~Stacy #36

Neet said...

Am sure you don't need your mum to encourage you to spend LOL. Hope you got some nice goodies.
Look forward to seeing your Alice work - a favourite subject of mine.
Hugs & Thanks for visiting me, Neet 6 xx

BJ said...

The albums sound great. My eyes have been a bit iffy this week so I have made an appointment with the opticians but must check my glasses are clean too - LOL. Thanks for the visit BJ#23

Sarah Brennan said...

Glad you had fun at the Range with your mum; even if it cost you a pretty penny. Look forward to seeing the stash next week? Sarah #14

Anne said...

Good to buy new stuff. Wish my mum could go shopping with me. She would encourage me to buy that's for sure :-) I was interested to read about your eyes/ fibromyalgia. I had never linked the two!!! Thanks for visiting me, sorry I am late visiting you. Anne x 13

Marit said...

Hope you had the time to play with your new stuff by now... and I LOVE Alice! I participated in an 'Alice round robin' once and cherish the little book that came out of it. Thanks for visiting my blog earlier - I had a lot of appointments last week so I am very late with paying a visit back... hope you had a lovely weekend! Hug from Holland, Marit #16
