Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

WOYWW - 104 Happy Anniversary

It has finally arrived - the second anniversary of this wonderful blog hopping.  Most of the credit must go to Julia, who started it all, and kept it all going throughout two whole years.  Well done, Julia, and many thanks for such a wonderful achievement.  I, for one, have met so many new friends since I joined last year, people I have never met in the flesh, but who I feel I know and can rely on for support and advice.

My desk this week is out of bounds as it is covered by an, as yet, unmentionable project, which I desperately need to finish.  So all I can show you in a crafting line is the box in which I keep all the cards I have done ready for finishing and sending - no inserts or names on, but easy to grab and finish off.  At the front are a couple of boxes of notelets for emergency presents, and a DVD of our grandchildren - my first attempt to print the disc itself with the new printer.

I have chosen not to show my pif, although it is finished and ready to go, as I want it to arrive as a surprise for the recipient.  Once it has been delivered, I will reveal it and explain it.  I hope that whoever gets it enjoys it.

Meanwhile, happy anniversary again and go to visit  Julia and all the other anniversary desks at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/

You are so organised and I wish I had a box full of cards all ready to go...but instead, I'm usually running around at the last minute trying to make one!
Thanks for sharing and can't wait to see the project that was under tight wraps! :)
Love Emma x

Angie said...

I think I should keep a box of nearly ready cards ...instead of trying to make one in a rush because I have left it til the last moment and often creativity had gone on holiday. It is amazing how many attend the gathering each week...I wonder how many there would be if everyone turned up one week.

Good idea to put the cards in a box so they are easy to grab.

Julia Dunnit said...

I keep a box of ready mades too - but I'm a sloth and never ever add an insert...write straight on the card, yessir! Intrigued by the project that needs finishing!

Emma said...

Hi again!!
Just wanted to drop by to say thank you, for all your lovely kind words about my Clarity samples...it means so much to know you loved them! Hope you're looking forward to all the cards, this week?
Love Emma xx
