WOYWW This week...

I'm gonna make this really quick!! (Bet yer don't!) This Wednesday what's on my workdesk is almost the same amount of rubbish - I mean crafty stuff- as I had last week, mainly because I've been out in the garden, filling hanging baskets, painting garden pots and gnome hunting. (long story, but there's a picture!) so haven't really done an awful lot of card making today (Tuesday) so just dumped everything back in, (no, you're not seeing the floor!) and taken the picture. (One day I will tidy it and pigs will rule the World, and make cards!) but I have done a freebie Lion. Hope you like him. He's peeking on my desk with another little bear I finished colouring about five minutes ago. And as you can see my unfinished WOYWW Anniversary swivel thingy is still unfinished but being used, so I surprised myself by not binning it! And, my new Promakers are still in their colour-coded draws! (it won't last!) Once more, I'm at work, this is on timer, or... I'm still here and I'm very very late!
'Yes' to a question from last week, that's me and him's Wedding picture, it's been hanging about since April when I blogged about our Anniversary. I must put it away! The little calender at the end, (Secret Santa pressie) is at last showing the right month! (things people notice!!)
This next picture isn't in my craft room, (no, really?) it's a hanging basket, without the hanging bits, I'll put them back on later.
First, cover the garden table with an old shower curtain...then rake the front lawn to gather up all this lovely moss, stuff it into a basket, cut a bit of plastic from a compost bag to line it, to help stop the water running straight out, fill with soil and then plant. Easy. Finished picture of lovely basket filled with blooms next week! (hopefully)

And now... Gnome Hunting... It's true, there are Gnomes in The New Forest... here's one... I'll tell you the story one day... but it's all down to poor hubby becoming a...Blogger-widower... (sounds like a duck!)
So, if you feel the urge to show well over a hundred bloggers where you do your crafting...be it on the floor, in the shed or even in the car while hubby goes fishing, pop over to Stamping ground and say Hi to Julia and join in... but be warned, the week will become strangely shorter!
Thank you to everyone who popped in last week, I'm 99% sure I got round everyone, maybe one or two who didn't actually have a blog!! Fabulous! Get your blogs up and running and come and join in!!

Now, if you feel you'd love to scroll down to the last post and vote for my card on the first Linkz Challenge, it's number 43!! and I'd be a very happy bunny!!

Sorry! This Wednesday's Freebie has now gone. There'll be a new one on the next Wednesday's Post.

  23. Fraid if I did hanging baskets here they would need to be anchored to the Earth's core which is just as well as last tie I tried to garden there was a price to pay so think will just retreat behind a wall of under or is that overgrowth like that princess who pricked her finger-you know-whassername? dammit-lack of grey cells impedes the flow of creativity again.
