Hi to you all, were has the week gone!!! I'm sure it can't be that time again were we all share our crafty desks over at Julia's woyww blog (also link on sidebar).  Ok so I have just left my crafty desk, it's Tuesday night at 10.15 and I'm scheduling my post, love being able to do this thanks to Julia's email helping me :-), my desk is messy with a challenge I'm doing for JAI which I have to finish and get it on here by 1pm tomorrow lol.  I'm late this week as it's been top up acupuncture week, it really works for me and helps me cope with walking between steroid injections, I'm quite sensitive to it and it wipes me out a bit like flu.  This morning there I am with 30 needles sticking out of my back and legs, I'm lying there on my front with my crafty mags, which I read while they stay in for half hour, now if  your in the UK you will know how cold it's been, and the nurse (bless her) gets a blanket to put over me, she couldn't understand why I was mortified, I know it's safe but all I kept thinking was how the blanket would be almost like a hammer and I could imagine needles being lost forever in my body, you would think by now that I have got used to it after 2 years, also I love going as just around the corner from the hospital is a crafty shop and OH always takes me into there for a treat, I reckon its because I always ask if he will come in the room while I have the acupuncture done and basically is a mega shake of head and a trip for a crafty treat (wink wink) lol lol.
My first pic is of my dumping desk, I wish I had taken a photo a few days ago as I had sorted it, well almost!!! this pic is also for Crafty Elf who last week is trying to help us ribbonolics, and I'm afraid as you can see, I went to a craft shop today and market on Saturday and ribbon popped into my basket again lol, but they were great value!!! 30p and 75p for the anita rolls WOW

the brown ribbon is spilling from the jar, the colours and rolls are new!!!
and for my card in process
So there we are, the usual mess, the usual essay (I always have so much to say to you all lol) and possibly the usual spelling mistakes, I do spell check but if the word isn't there I just ignore and put it in anyway, I reckon I have made up so many new crafty words!! lol.
I visited quite a few last week but as you know my commenting on my ipady thingy has not been working, so finally OH sorted it at the weekend, then I sat there ready to go back and make comments and would you believe it, blogger has been messing about, I know it sounds like another excuse (lol) but truthfully it's gone funny on some blogs, now some of you may have received an email from me that I got explaining how to rectify it, the blog you go to is here, it's someones blog (sorry I forgot her name) but it seems to work. Almost forgot, I have been a GingerGem for the last two weeks and this week I am a Ginger Gems homepage artist with this piece I did here, over at the Gingersnap Creations Blog, I'm so excited :-).
I hope you all have a fantastic and messy crafty week, look out, next week I'm hoping to have sorted my blogiversary candy.  Thanks for sharing.  Kezzy xxx
P.S I would appreciate some if anybody could give me ideas for blog candy as I'm sure you don't all want me to buy ribbons and buttons (which I would have to buy X2 one for candy one for me!! lol)

I'm so glad the accupunture works well for you. I'm a great believer in reaches parts other things can't reach [and when you see just how far they put some of those needles in I guess that just must be true :-)

If it works for you then I saw keep it up definitely, especially the little treat at the end of each session!! I love ribbon too and have quite a bit of it on my desk this week! The onyl thing I would say about a giveaway is consider the cost, especially if you're doing world wide postage.

Hey Kezzy,

I had an accupuncture appointment yesterday! I have a few things wrong with me (haa) so I don't always get the same places pricked. Yesterday it was between my right fingers as my hand kept going numb.

Your work desks look great. How nice to have two work surfaces. I do most of my crafting at the dining room table!

What a lot of fun stuff to play with! I wonder if my mom would benefit from acupuncture.

I've never considered myself a ribbon-aholic but I'm starting to suspect that I might be. You have some great stuff on your desk.

I'm not sure I could sit still (lie still) for a whole 30 minutes, craft magazines or not.

How interesting that acupuncture helps so much - I don't really know that much about it. Would it help relieve sinus pressure, do you think? I've been unable to clear mine and have had a low level headache for ages now...
I like the component parts for the card that's on your desk, great colours!

I'm glad that you are feeling better. It sucks to feel under the weather and worned down. Take care of yourself and can't wait to see some of your next projects.

Glad to hear the accupuncture works well for you a had a few sessions a couple of years ago and understand exactly what you mean about how it wipes you out, i could hardly walk to the car after i had mine and then the following day was so bad, great bargains on the ribbons, I am sure whatever candy you wanted to give would be wonderful.
