WOYWW - no papers!

Wednesday again so it's out with the notebook and pen as I snoop around other people's craftspaces and discover the next thing that I cannot possibly live without. Check out ~{Julia's Blog}~ if you want to join in. Last week there were 60+ of us, so I shall apologise if I don't make it around to everyone.

This week there's no papers on view as I'm making a birthday present and repairing some jewellery while slobbing on the sofa watching tv. And yes, those are my feet!!


Once I'm done with the beads I think I may have to tackle this mess:

I've already had a fight with some tiger tail that had got itself in a knot. Don't possibly know how that could happen as I'm usually so tidy!

I'd like to thank the lovely people who have given me blog awards recently. It's nice to know that you think I'm worthy of them, but really I'm not as I'm a complete slacker with them! The thing is, there really isn't anything interesting I could tell you about myself as I don't do anything and then I can't ever choose who to send them on to as there are so many blogs I visit.

I'd also like to thank those of you who asked after my mum last week. She was very touched that people were sending her good wishes. She's doing really well, apart from being frustrated at not being able to do much at the moment.

Off for a sneak and a snoop now xxx
