Closing down the SG blog and going to my other one

Hi everyone,

It has been so very difficult to maintain several blogs, that I have decided to transfer everything onto the Toodles and Binks one.  Please check out the other blog, as I am getting to post more regularly on that one with lots more interesting content it is here.

vBlog #27 - WOYWW 58


Well, it's Wednesday again .... doesn't it just wizz around quicker and quicker each time!

Here is what I currently have on my desk

I have decided that I only have time to update one blog .... so there is more crafting time .... so the stampgalaxy.blogspot one will go dormant .... and I will use this one from now on.

Julia, no nail polish yet - I am just about to re-pain them, I am trying to get in the habit of having nice nails now I don't have to do mega typing each day. I have promised my set of acrylic nails, but not sure if I will actually like them!

vBlog #26 - Stop Press ... It's haul time

I got a package ..... I got a package ...... embarrassingly though I still can't open the box !!!

vBlog #25 - WOYWW 57


Yay, I finally found time to play .... but this week I have broken the habit of a lifetime and stopped pushing stash backwards and done a tidy up.

Here's my short vBlog showing you what is going on:

I will be crafting this afternoon, but this evening I will be visiting all the links at Julia's Blog to see what the other WOYWWers are up to.

Happy Crafting

First day of the rest of my life ....

I broke up from work officially last week, and had a few days mooching around (although still busy), but today is officially the first day of the rest of my life - it was a wonderful feeling last night when I did not have the Sunday Evening dread that used to spread over me!!!

I have been far from idle though ..... one conservatory washed inside and out, bedroom cleaned from head to toe and the en suite also done thoroughly ..... the packing room organisation has been started, some orders packed, even a bit more of the WOYWW project done, beds changed and lunch eaten .... now down to some actual work .... I am about to do the big accounts catch up.

I am also eagerly awiting a delivery of some Gilding Flakes, paper stumps and Liquitex Gel Bead Medium from a new supplier.  Plus a delivery is expected for me ..... I caved and bought a Kandy Kane Rhinestone Wand and a collection of Rhinestones .... which will be used on the WOYWW project when they arrive.

Happy Crafting Chicas.

WOYWW #54 - Gas Masks and Projects mostly

Yet another Homework project is sitting on my desk - I got 2 house points for the last scroll-what-looked-like-a-rolling-pin one - and the WOYWW #52 project has progressed a bit further.

The Gas Mask seems to have lost the word "Raid" yesterday at school, but I might be able to fix that ... apparently it goes back and forth every Tuesday now for the World War II history project a la a the real war when they had to walk around with them all the time ... not that I remember I am far too young .... although disturbingly I am now apparently "vintage" and nearly not too far off "antique".

The project has now been painted in a shabby chic fashion - you see, I have to do that, 'cos I can't paint very well!  It just needs a dry brush coat of gold and tissue paper modge podged on to be finished.

Thank you so much for linking for me last week it was very much appreciated.  I managed to visit everyone, but sadly didn't get a chance to leave comments, I will try harder this week I promise.

If you would like to snoop around crafty spaces *some of the spookily tidy I have to say* pop over to the lovely Mrs Dunnit's blog and check out the WOYWWs'.

New Copics have Landed

and blimey they have already started flying out ......

We have re-stocked all but 2 colours of he Ciao markers, and mega re-stock of Sketch plus lots of new Sketch colours, a re-stock of re-fills and some more popular colours added to the re-fills.

I still have to re-order more now, which will be an urgent task, but our range is growing rapidly.

Thank you all so much for your comments left for WOYWW last week, I will write a nice WOYWW post for tomorrow shortly and update you all on my project.  I think I visited everyone eventually last week, but sadly had no time to leave comments (which I hate!) so I will make a special effort this week.

WOYWW # 53 - Stash Pushing clearly must stop


I think I have surpassed even myself this week with WOYWW, with this picture - I am a Stash Pusher!

IMG00097.jpg WOYWW 53 on Twitpic

I am really pushed for time, so had to rely on taking a Blackberry photo and then Twitpic'ng it up for you. Although looking at this it looks like a rolling pin in a jar ... read on ....

At this point I am not sure if Julia will have uploaded WOYWW, so I may just have to leave a begging comment on her blog and hope somebody will be kind enough to link to me.

Well, on to business .... what is on here .... not much the main object is a piece of Toodles homework that I helped (99.9%) with (she wrote the letter on plain copier paper and I did the rest of the antiquing) to create an historical letter written by some chap at sea! Then you can also see the glue gun and heat gun .... as for the rest of it I am truly STASH PUSHING at the moment as I am really short of time before I stop work on 30th June.

I still haven't got any further with my #52 project, it is now lurking under my desk.

Hop over to Julia's blog to see what everyone else has been up to - I am sure it is more productive than me!
