WOYWW - 08 February 2012

Here I am sat at work eating my lunch dreaming of my craft desk at home...  This morning I have been on a Mandatory Basic Life Support course at work, learning how to give CPR & the "Kiss of Life" which are now known as 'Rescue Breaths'.

So it is time to joint the Crafters at Stamping Ground & be a bit nosey at other people desks (or work spaces).  As it has now reached lunch time I can do a quick update to my blog along with a picture I took of my desk before I came to work.

Ok... I admit I'm not going to drink the tea (it was left over from Monday night) LOL but the other goodies were brought yesterday.

I have discovered a Gold Mine for crafters in a little village called Laneham (Notts).  Coming from Lincoln I have to pay the 30p each way toll to cross Dunham Bridge - but it is soooooo worth it.   If you are in the area I would STRONGLY suggest that you pay a visit to LLinda's Cards & Crafts  How she gets so much in such a small space I don't know. 

She also runs a number of classes, & I attended one yesterday - which was fab... I will have to do a separate post about the class & pictures of the cards that I made as I don't have time at the moment.

A quick update on DH, he is back home from hospital (Many thanks to those who added kind words on Monday) he had another Kidney Stone, but it looks as if it has now passed, his kidneys are clear and he is feeling a lot better :-)


  1. love the look of your new goodies and glad DH is better too! long may it continue and if i am ever in the Laneham area I'll be sure to pop into the craft shop!

    Have a great time crafting


  2. Glad to hear your Hubby is back home and recovering well. Love your crafty desk and all your new craft goodies :)

    I have just become your latest follower, I hope that's okay?

    Have a great WOYWW and a fab week, Karen #90

  3. OOh I was so tempted by that very same picket fence die, I just know I shall end up with it! Glad you've found somewhere great to shop, it sure helps, having a friendly community to tap into. Glad to hear about DH, ouch.

  4. I like the way the goodies overhang the edge - it makes it look like we all work in tiny crammed in spaces! Isn't it wonderful when you find a real live shop worth the visit, so much more of an experience than the internet.

  5. So glad DH is so much better, love those goodies on your desk, great news about the little shop you have discovered sounds wonderful, Have a great week, Hugs May x x x x

  6. That picket fence die is beautiful.
    So is the area you live in. Although i live in BC Canada, I have been to beautiful are very lucky to live in such a place.

  7. Always fun to find a new place to shop, especially if they have fun things!!!! I like the little tiny house/picket fence.
    Hope you have a wonderful week

  8. Wish i had some new goodies like that. I want a new trimmer so that hopefully will be my next purchase.

  9. ooooh looks like lots of fun is going to be had with those lovely goodies :D

    luv Ger
