Hi to all the woyww's, if  your wondering what its all about hop on over to Julia's blog and see an array of crafty desks.  Wow I can't believe how little I've blogged, we decided to extend our holiday, but gave up on the wi-fi as it just wasn't worth spending more money when I couldn't get a brilliant signal.  So back to reality and I'm afraid my desk has not much on it
I came back to have won a few giveaways that I send off from craft magazines, I won the maya road ribbon, fancy pants stickers, brads and buttons and also some beads so that was a nice surprise to come home to.  I ordered my first stampotique stamp which is on my desk (should have turned it the other way).  Also on my desk is some print outs from my creative classroom, another chocolate surprise box (left of pic), a craft stamper mag  March 2010 with some bits in I want to try and a sketch book with thick card so I can start a colour journal (never tried before), and lets not forget the sweeties!!!! lol.  So not over interesting, I do feel thought that I'm behind with the blogging world, and need to start some challenges, well go through and see what the challenges are lol, and start blogging again every couple of days I really do feel like I'm behind in a weird way but also really enjoyed the break (if you can understand that!!!!!).
Have a fab crafty week.

Hi to all your woyww's, if your wondering what its all about nip over to the famous host Julias Blog.  I'm going to be really quick as I am in the middle of no where trying to get a signal in the middle of a field!!!! I have been camping all week and tried to get around last week woywws as best i could while trying to sit with my ipad equivilant on top of a mound or lurking around the toilets as that is where the signal post is lol. So some of you have comments, some have part comments and some have non or maybe just a letter or two lol!!! I'm using other halfs laptop at moment and breathing really slowly hoping I'm not disconnected while trying to load photos.  My other half has been teasing me all week as when i got the map of the area when we got here i got over excited as there where WAPs all over the map and i thought hurray wifi will be excelliant here, I paid my £10 the weekly price for the internet code that evening and was utterly disappointed that it wasn't working, spoke to OH should him the WAPs on the map, and he started laughing, took me outside and told me to walk to my nearest WAP!!! it was a typing area it meant TAP as in water!!!!  Me thinks his workmates are going to have a right laugh!!!  Oh I'm so sorry its woyww and I've not shown you my work areas!!!!
Been working on my painting techniques, but not a fantastic start, as table wobbles so going to continue at home.

I have been working on jewellery and making beaded flowers for card toppers.  And a few quick photos of where i'm crafting!!!

As you can see when I say camping, I don't do real camping, but camping in comfort!!! lol.  And with OH being an engineer, while other tents have low lightung we have a dome of bright light, with out door light and remote control, at least we dont need a torch to go to the loo at night we just look for ball of light shining through lol, lol, lol I do get mega teased by my friends regarding our so called camping.  Better go this is supposed to be a wowyw and i've told you a weeks blogging in one lol.  Back home to comfort tomorrow, no more chasing the WAP!!!!  Thanks for looking. By for now Kezzy xxx

Hi to all the woyww's out there, I can't believe that week 97 is only 7 weeks away, I really need to start on my project!!!  I am so sorry I hardly got to comment on many of you last week as I kept having fleeting looks while on the go.  You know what its like, when your off ill for a couple of weeks (after back injections), when your on the mend everybody seems to want a piece of you LOL LOL.  I have 3 pics for you today, 2 from my sofa craft and one of my craft desk which is a bit boring!!!!
I'm off camping on Friday and on my desk is the bits I have decided to take.  I'm planning on taking Sheena's paint fusion as I haven't had a go yet so I am taking the dvd, practice sheets, paint and some card to paint on, I'm only planning on practising as I'm sure it will take awhile to get the hang of it.  Also I'm taking my embroidery (not on pic), crochet (going to try and learn to do crochet flowers) and my seed beading (next photo's).

This is my sofa craft, I have been sorting out my beads into colour groups as I used to just have them mixed up in a box.  I have been doing this for awhile on and off downstairs, but this week I have been trying to sort me seed beads out (these are really small beads) so I can take them camping .........

And here is the seed bead trays I have been filling up to take with me, some are sorted some are not.  The box on the left is the mixed beads I have been sorting and the books on the right are the ideas I am taking with me, so hopefully I may come back with something. 
If your all wondering what I am waffling on about nip over to Julia's blog and have a tour around some fabulous desks and why not join in so we can see yours.
Hope you all have a fantastic crafty week. xxx

The front may get me taken out of the challenge as its got a bit of blue

Just a little bit of blue so the bag pops out a bit.  It was all made using the cute companions summer stories cd rom from crafters companion.

Hope you have a fab evening.

Blooming Blossoms

Hi to all, just a quick post tonight as I'm crafting away, but wanted to quickly enter the Allsorts Challenge - Blooming Blossoms .  Last year I made some cards for work with packs of seeds on the front, the initial idea came from a magazine a few years ago.  Anyway the other day someone at work wanted me to make two for her, I tried to persuade her to have them slightly different seems I have not got a little bit further with my craft, but no so luck she wanted the same.  Luckily I had kept the flower pics, there quite simple but its what the customer ordered!!!!
Sorry about the photo, I decided at the last minute, as I was off to deliver the cards, that I would take a pic, initially I wasn't going to but then I thought why not, it may give others inspiration.
Thanks for having a peep, hope you all have a crafty fun Friday. lol xxx

Hi to all my fellow woyww's, hope you have had a brill crafty week, if your wondering what I'm on about jump over to Julie's blog and have a look at fellow crafters mess oops I mean desks LOL LOL.
I tried to visit as many desks as I could last week, I didn't manage to comment on them all.  My theory is (now bear with me) if I comment on so many a week and look at rest, then hopefully within a month I should have commented on everyones!!!  ok statistics isn't my thing LOL.  Anyway onto my mess/desk!!! 
I'm afraid my desk is still got left overs of last nights card I made (on previous post).  Just looking at photo I've just noticed that my son left his plaster from last night on my desk and the tooth that dropped out this morning (notice the not under the pillow but put on mums favourite crafty desk and she will remember to give me cash), don't you just love sons!!!!  I have a nursery book open that I was ripping pages out of and inking up, cuppa on side, digi stamps and well a mess.  On my other desk .........

........... is a mess doh!!!, some papers, ribbon that you can tell I was searching through calmly (not!!!) and my TH tag die.  I would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely comments last week and to say I am starting to feel alot better also a big hello to my new followers, its so nice to know that I have crafty people wanting to follow my journey, brings a smile to my face (another corny sentence, me thinks I so need to get out more this week!!! LOL).  Hope you all have a fab week. xx

Challenge - April Showers!!!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the mums out there, hope your having a fantastic day. My kids brought me some lovely flowers and chocolates, its weird now that there old enough to go shopping themselves, mind you aqs my OH said, they still need money from the friendly bank i.e him lol. I'm afraid we haven't been able to go out today seems I'm suppose to rest, just a few more days and I'm sure I'll be dancing in the rain!!! lol  Ok corney but over at Raise The Bar Challenge Blog its April Showers (See how I have said me dancing, April Showers - yep I'm sad I really need to get out soon!!!).  Luckily any weather will do for the challenge.
I just fancied a play, nothing to difficult as when I can't bend forward for too long, mind you hurray I can feel its starting to ease.  So I remembered I had once won £50 of paper cellars products and when I was browsing through the blogs last night I recalled I had these weather stickers.  Also instead of going through all my 12 by 12 boxes for patterened paper I got my scrap box out and used bits and pieces.  I used my cricut for the letters (mind you got to reduce on those strong pain killers as looking at it at the moment nothing looks straight, thank goodness I stop those in a couple of days lol).
Hope you all have a brilliant crafty evening and may Monday morning be nice and calm!!!!! xxx

Chocolate Galore

Before I start I better warn off anybody who has given up chocolate for lent!!!!  Hi to all, hope your have a brill weekend.  I am entering the following into reasonable ribbon challenge - punches and die cuts.  When I was little my mum used to day a fantastic spread for parties and there was always cheese and pinapple in a potatoe, and one time I asked if we could do chocolate and marshmellows!!!  It was a great success and from then on I have always tried to do something special for the kids at parties.  My friend asked if I could do her a chocolate tree, she had seen something with chocolate bars on sticks with loads of ribbons.......
I made a box at the bottom and filled it with oasis, then I decorated the outside with pink card, martha steward punch for the blue and then a butterfly and flower trim at bottom a closer look .........

I stuffed tissue paper around the edges and then cellotaped bars and packets of chocolate to sticks then added paper ribbon at the top.  I then made two butterflys with TH sizzix butterfly die cut, added to a stick with knotted ribbons down the stick, wire and beads for the umm errr eye things at top of butterfly (not sure what they are called lol lol), I made sure they were also backed as well so you couldn't see any wire etc.  Closer pic ..............
The party is today and I'm afraid I'm not going as I haven't got all the strength in my legs yet which supposingly happens and it will get better within 10 days.  So I wish Lacie Louise a mega happy birthday party for today she is 1.  Her actual birthday is next Tuesday so I'm determine to make it then.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
