WOYWW

Good morning all.

Apologies for not being around much but I am not very well at the moment - not even well enough to craft!!

Here is how my desk is looking today
The rest of my desk looks very much unloved :(

I also have pics from a workshop which I did with the AMAZING Hels Sheridan at The Stamp Attic .
The workshop was a Distress Masterclass and it was fabulous.  Here are some of my samples:




There were 15 techniques in total and we bound them into a fab little technique book!

If you want to have a nosey at other desks around the world, pop over to The Stamping Ground for more info!

Also, I am having a clearout on Ebay - check out the post below for more details.

Thanks for looking.

  7. Miriam, Can you tell me if there is a mainline railway station near to the Stamp Attic. I stay in Scotland, but would love to do a class like the one you have been to. Maybe you could e-mail me at wisdombears.39@sky.com. Hugs Rita xx

  12. Hi Miriam, Sorry to hear that you have not been well, I can sympathise with you, but hope you are soon back to full health, hope it is not work, I worked for over 40 years in HR and I understand the pressures. Anyway, Hels' classes are amazing aren't they? I love the way she teaches and she is so much fun too. Love what you produced and what a great idea to keep a techniques book too. Crafty hugs, Anne x #43

  37. Great technique tag book and hope you feel better soon. You are so right about not being able to find a craft shop in Sydney they are all closing down and going online. We are only left with snooty art shops run by teenagers and I have enough of them at home!.

  47. I do hope you are feeling better soon, it's not fair when you cant craft when sick. Love those flowers you have colored, what sort of technique did you do on them? I am sure the photo did not do them justice.

    Happy crafting this week
