What a Nightmare !

I am astounded at just how dependant I am on technology ... internet, mobile phone, palm-pilot ... just one of them 'goes down' and I am a complete shambles!


Anyway, after 6 days without a broadband connection I am now up and running again and catching up with the big wide world.

It's been a funny old week !

Do you ever get to the end of the week and think "what have I done this week?"

That's what I was thinking to myself today ... but then I sat down and thought about it and, actually, I've been pretty busy....

On Monday my friend Carole cooked me a gorgeous curried chicken lunch, we also swapped Birthday presents which sounds very efficient but when you learn my Birthday was in May and Carole's was in January maybe we're not as organised as we seem !!

Then on Tuesday I spent a few glorious hours sifting through goodies and seeking out treasure at the Scrap Creative Reuse Art Project with Jaygo Touchy Feely Textiles followed by lunch with girlfriends at Blacker Hall Farm in Wakefield. I make it sound like I go out for lunch all the time but like buses they all came at once plus today's lunch was well deserved before I had to visit the dreaded dentist for a tooth extraction after loosing my year long battle with a tooth abscess ... I definitely deserved a nice lunch don't you think?

Wednesday was a visit to see my Mum who spoilt me rotten as usual !

Thursday was a shopping trip to Leeds to buy Birthday presents for my Mum, my better half and my most bestest friend - how come the three people closest to me have Birthdays over a 3 day period - what kind of planning was that?

After a quick visit to Sainsbugs Friday was a work day making my paper beads into necklaces, bracelets, brooches and keyrings ready for the Notton Village Gala on Sunday. I'm very excited as I've been working on a couple of new comic book and atlas collections - I can't wait to see what people think.

Saturday found me in Barnsley at the absolutely excellent Paper Works Art Exhibition in The Civic - OMG I thought I had patience rolling my paper beads but some of the people exhibiting there are clearly saints !



My week was rounded off with the Notton Village Gala, we were hoping for a glorious sun drenched afternoon but the British weather had another kind of drenching in mind and reluctantly I had to pull out of the event - fingers crossed the sun will be shining next year!


Wonder what's in store for us all next week???

Scrap Creative Reuse Arts Project

I spent a wonderful couple of hours this morning at the Scrap Creative Reuse Arts Project in Leeds seeking out lots of glorious treasures.


Came up trumps with some fab wallpaper samples, sugar paper, posters, tissue paper, pink netting and even half a dozen christmas pudding pots !


That little lot should keep me busy for a while !


For more information look up Scrap Creative Reuse Arts Project on facebook


Keep on Making !
