WOYWW #351

Short but sweet this week!  I still haven't done much in the way of any crafting or art work.  I just don't have what it takes to get it done!  Here is a picture of my desk this week!

A few more new stamp pads and a couple new stamp sets from Stampin' Up!  I am planning on making myself get busy and do something but it is a work in progress.

I saw these shells on Pinterest the other day and I was thinking perhaps I could buy some shells to make a few....I loved the Dresden China look of the various shells and attempted to make one using a shell I had but it smeared and looked horrible.  I have since bought some Sharpie Oil Based Markers and will try again as soon as I get some more shells. 

Here is another example of using shells and decorating them!  Having two such photos to work off I went to buy some shells but they are very pricey to say the least! 

A young friend of mine heard that I wanted to make a few so she brought me a big box of shells!
Maybe by next week I will have a few finished to share...

Okay that is it for my desk and crafty stuff!  If you would like to play along visit Julia at Stamping Ground (there is also a link on the right side bar) and click on the WOYWW link!

I had 5 medical appointments since last week this time and just sitting and waiting to get through each one just wears me out!  No new news just the same old stuff.  My broken knee is healing well and I should continue to try stay off that leg and limit walking on it just to go to the toilet etc and always use the walker or cane when I have to walk...hello!  What world do they live in?  I am not the Queen of Sheba with someone to wait on me hand and foot!  My back isn't going to have to undergo surgery right away we are going to try to be more conservative and try physical therapy and drugs first...glad to hear that cause they were telling me it would be surgery for sure at the last appointment!!

WOYWW #348

Well today is actually Thursday and not Wednesday and the only excuse I can offer up is that my damn mind just can't grasp a weekly cycle anymore.  I think on Sunday about Wednesday and even think up ideas about what I can share but...never here I am a day late and a dollar short so to speak.  If you wonder why Wednesday is giving me fits click on over to Stamping Ground and Julia has a little linky thing on the top bar that tells you what WOYWW is! 

My desk this week.  Working space available but no drive to do any Mojo has gone walkabout and I am too down to give a care.   This desk is actually about 8' long so there is a lot of space to clutter up and still have 2' to craft in. 
One thing I did do is go to Monday night art night at Heathers house and completed three sets of two 12" x 12" scrapbook pages from a kit. I haven't decided what pictures to have printed to put on the pages so as soon as I get them finished I will post the done deal.

Stopped by the local Tuesday Morning store yesterday after my appointment with the therapist and found some really good buys!  Tuesday Morning is a discount store that sells name brand stuff that is discontinued or hasn't been sold in the big markets...a thrift store so to speak.  This stack is packages of 12"x12" sheets of Bazzill double sided card stock that they were selling for next to nothing.  Each pack holds 25 sheets of card stock and it cost me about £1.99 per pack.  The print paper was a little more expensive but not much.  I also picked up some Valentines paper from Michaels to make some cards for friends and family.  I am clueless where my Valentines stuff went!  I really have way too much!
I love to find sales cause my art work doesn't realize it is being made with discontinued card or papers! 

How about a Throw Back Thursday since I am so late getting this out...
Hope you have a great week and I will be back next week!
