WOYWW... With Knobs On...

...I can guess that you are probably thinking "oh no, here she goes again with her dirty mind and smutty innuendo's"... but you would be wrong cos I actually have TWO KNOBS *snorts in a reaaaaallly childish wayt* on my desk today ROFL Check 'em out...ain't they gorgeous! I bought them a couple of weeks ago in my favest shop in the whole widest world... called Esho Funi and it is in Whitby, tis where the hares come from too...beware before clicking on the link though... if you like the kinda stuff I like, you will LOOOOOOVE this shop... honestly, I could spend thousands in there (if I had thousands, that is LOL) and still go back for more... what I didn't tell you last week is... well, the hares that I collected are now complete... and the sculptor also does other animals... including Meerkats...simples!!! *sorry, couldn't help myself with that reference to the advert again... anyone who isn't from the UK probably thinks I am stark staring bonkers... what do you mean, you are from the UK and you think that anyway!!!*




Moving swiftly on... as you do when you begin to realise that half the people you are talking to have clicked and hopped off to another blog LMAO... also on my desk today - which you will notice is VERY tidy... I am being a very goodly girl and have kept it tidy all the time... actually, I am lying again, it was a pigsty yesterday morning so I got grumpy and tidied it all up... but I did get chance to sit meself down and faff with some tags... making inky splooshinesses on the craft sheet and then swooshing thru the splooshinesses to make lovely backgrounds...one of the tags has some Trad Tan paint used as a resist on it... can't possibly blog without mentioning my Trad Tan LOL




I really do have to say that in all my haste to get the room tidy, I forgot to tip out the dirty water in my brush pot (kindly donated by Linda about 100 years ago and still going strong :O)) I didn't want you thinking that I drank from a Tommee Tippee or anything...am not that old yet LOL





I have another piccie here of the view from the door of the room so you can see Grim's handywork with the shelves...gotta love my Grim for putting up *with me?* all those shelves for me... do you like the pub Grim bought me for my 40th??? And, do you like the reflection it is making on the shelf, which can only mean one thing... that shelf ain't dusty... aha, I will soon put paid to that, worry not!



As well as all my inane wafflings about shelves, clocks, knobs *snorts again* and tags... I also wanted to mention that it is a new challenge day for the Gingersnap Creations... and today the new theme is Shades of Blue. Well, what better way to make something blue than to make a Father's Day Card for my Aged P... bless him, he is too many miles away from me but fingers x'd he will be a-visiting soonly... I used Distress Inks for the backgroundy bits... added on some stamping ... from the Mr Holtz collection of course and then added some Idea-ology Washers and Mini Brads in the corners.




Well, I reckon that if you got this far you deserve a huge biscuit of the chocolate variety and a cup of coffee... to pep you up before you hop on to the next person on the ever growing, I was gonna say list but I think it is more of a community now, that is the WOYWW crew... head on over to the blog owned by (the now inky fingered - tee hee) Julia, who is our highly respected and totally worshipped leader... and... as well as all of that... have a Fabbylicious day... *do you think I sound a bit mad at the moment??? Well, I have a secret to divulge... it is nearly 1am... I have been up for like 57 hours, (ok, a bit of an exaggeration but)...still... I am pooped but I am waiting for Grim to come home from work...tis his first day back after a long absence, won't go into details about what happened all I will say is... Grim, if you are reading this, I am so proud of you babes...* Right, am offski, hopefully this Bloggy Scheduley thingy will work and when this is published I will be in the Land of Nod...and then I will be refreshed to pop around the world and see all your workdesks later! TTFN

PS.... still with me??? Read Julia's comment on her post for last week WOYWW... she says... "keep the written word brief" Whooopsies!!! Think I may have written a few too many today ROFL
