WOYWW

Well Hello There! This blog seems to be a bit of a WOYWW only zone at the moment but I will try to mix it up a bit, maybe with some non-crafty bits. Had a bit of a change and update, hope you all like it. For those that are interested in the the WOYWW game, then head on over here to Julia's place when you are done here. 

So, what do we have? Well I didn't get as much crafty stuff done as I thought last week, though I got a few new bits started and a few ideas in place. The pile of trays in the bottom left hand corner is for an attempt at the wonderful Wall Art, shown at Scrappy Sticky Inky Mess. The piece of paper on the keyboard is my sketch for the storage that was shown off last week, and I intend to make a page from it in due course. 

The stamps in the very bottom right corner are some Maya Road journalling stamps, and some clock stamps that I picked up at Ally Pally in April. They are sitting on top of a chipboard cover, which sits on top of all my uni photographs. There are not many as I was only there for 6 months, and I'm trying to see how easy it is to scrap about things or times that are difficult, as opposed to all the fun things that normally get scrapped. 

All the other bits are preparations for the Winter Holiday. There are some stamped Santa's in the middle with an attempt on distressing, though it was done with some cheapy ink pads that came from Hobbycraft. I like the technique, but I think I might need some of the proper bits to do it. The white envelope is actually a net that I am making, and one that finally worked. The proper net is ready as a jpg, just waiting for me to find some nice patterend A4 paper and the time and money to go to the copy shop and then get cutting.

Thanks to all who made lovely comments. I didn't get around everyone again, and think I might have to manage with the reciprical hopping just for the moment. Also thanks to those who commented on the dolls house. It is (like most things) a work in progress, a present that was brought when I first moved in with OH, and has moved 4 times with us despite his best attempts to have it sent to the dump. Aside from some help with screwing the roof on, it was built by my fair hands only. I would like it finished soon so that I can start to furnish it as a Victorian cake shop/restaurant. 

Bit of a waffley post today, I think I might need a more descriptive badge. Hoping that you all have a happy Wednesday, and I'll see where we get to this week. 

Love Elliefantasy xxx

You gotta lot going on! Like the ATC with trees on, and the Maya road stamps of course. I found scrapping and journalling a couple of pictures of my late sister incredibly cathartic - it really wasn't hard at all in the end - although it took me some time to actually stop looking at the pics and get on with it. Hope your experience is as positive - it need recording really after all, it's about your life, and that's important!

Like you, I had intended to visit only those who left a comment this week, then I got so many, then I got confused, so decided to go through the list anyway (grin). You can see how well my strategy worked! I do appreciate you visiting me, though, since I hadn't made it anywhere near your number when you left me such a sweet comment.

I have heard of those Maya Road stamps, but had never seen any to my knowledge. Had to check out how those trays were used, too. Sidetracked and now I'm on a mission to finish!

Morti said...

Hi Ellie! Thanks for stopping by my blog....

I use baby wipes to clean my stamps as well, but some of the clear stamps turn up with ink on them called indexing (like Clarity Stamps, for example)that requires something a little more potent to remove it. Love your space!

Claire said...

What a great picture - just like you my computer always seems to get buried!!Love the clock stamps :)

Hope you will share your finished project. I love seeing stash and imagining, but I am usually way off base! But I will re-visit in fear of seeing the jolly fat man and feeling the guilt descend. I really cannot put off thinking about "that" holiday much longer! :)
