WOYWW ... To Coin A Phrase...

Who Fast Forwarded the whole week??? Anyone else out there thinking that it is Sunday when in reality it is Wednesday again??? Someone took last week and pressed Fast Forward I reckon! Anyways... Happy Wednesday and a brand new WOYWW starts... click HERE to go and see our Julia, the leader of the clan of WOYWW'ers :O)) I have done two pics of the room today, first one is my desk - very untidy and DI's all over the place cos I haven't unpacked their storage yet... and the second one is a close up of my computer desk... complete with all the manuals and instructions books for the gadgets and gizmo's I have... oh and the very first piece of Altered Art I made... a little baccy tin covered in Rob & Bob papers - which was supposed to be for ATC's .. but then it got too small ROFL




Anyways... I have shelves! Yes, Grim was as good as his word and on Friday last he put up loads of shelves for me so I could unpack the last few boxes and get the Baskets of Stamps out... erm... in actual fact, that hasn't happened yet cos my back has gone! Well... not literally gone ...wish it had then I wouldn't be able to feel the beggar paining me!!! ... but you know what I mean... So I have been taking things easy and not doing a right lot at all... which is bugging me cos I really want to get my room sorted! And... on Friday I have to go into hospital so they can stick a metre long *maybe a teensy exageration there* needle into my back - I am having an "epidural" but apparently it won't affect my legs - am DREADING it ... no anaesthetic either... eeeeeks!!!!




So, enough about me and my ailments... *did I mention I have a whiff of a head cold too??? ROFL* and let me tell you what else happens on a Wednesday... Gingersnap Creations have a brand new challenge! This week the challenge is Quotes - and I made a flower... Using Distress Inks and Wendy Vecchi stamps, I did some bleachy stamping by dabbing the background stamp into water and then popping over the DI'd piece... then zapping with the heat gun.




Did I mention before that I am the UK/Europe co-ordinator for the Gingersnaps latest swap? I didn't??? Well, I am co-ordinating the current swap and am making my own flowers to go in the swap... Shar has sorted the template and we literally just download it and then get stuck in.




Right that is enough from me... time for my meds and time for me to try and get at least one box done today! Don't forget to go and say Hi to Julia... and thank you too to all who visited me last week... I reckon I got about 75% of the entrants visited.. hoping to get everyone done this week LOL TTFN

Good luck with the needles! Saw your gingersnap piece this a.m. early - knew it was yours before I saw the name!! Love how your room One 4 (is that right?) is coming together.
Wednesdays for WOYWW and Sundays (for Sunday Stampers, natch!) are my fave days of the week. (crawl, grovel!)

Sorry to hear about your back. It's too bad you don't really have the way to enjoy your new room, shelves, and play area. I hope that meter long needle doesn't get you down. Your room is starting to look lived in, at least (or maybe it's things are not put away yet). Happy WOYWW and get better soon.

I like that thing you've made and its nice that you have been crafting... the room looks like its coming along too... thank god you waited for Grim to do the shelves - or it wouldn't just be an epidural your going in hosp for... anyway - I've had enough of hospitals for the time being - so hope your visit goes well and you are soon out again - sorting those DI's out.

Big hugs

Julia Dunnit said...

Gawd Hels, you poor thing. I don't wanna talk bad backs really, it's a horror I'm right with you on. Take care, do what they tell ya.

The room is coming along nicely, don't fret about it! Take care of your back and the room will wait until you are up to it. As for the epidural, I'm sure it's not quite a metre long! Hope it all goes well on Friday x

sutty said...

Your craft looks really well organised - not messy :) The flower is beautiful - love the colours you have used, and also like the wall hangings in your 1st picture -thanks for letting me have a look around :)

sutty said...

forgot to say - hope your back gets better soon - had 2 spinal blocks which went well never thought about the needle length til a friend training to be a doctor commented on how long the needles were :) However don't worry it dosen't feel like you are having a 1m long needle in your back and hopefully it will help :) Good luck.

Hey, Hels!
Uncooperative backs can be soooo frustrating! Especially for a creative, busy person like you! As a retired nurse my advice is "be a good patient"! Ha! Seriously, you're in my thoughts and I'm sure all will go well.
Hugs,

Hi Hels, looking good girl, you will be so happy when it's all unpacked and ready for use. Friday will be fine, I had an epidural in my spine and they do give you a small shot of local anaesthetic so you really don't feel it. Will be thinking of you and a big thank you for the birthday card that arrived this afternoon - love it.

Tracey said...

Take care the boxes will get emptied eventually, hugs for Friday hun.
