Woyww 104....

Good morning Woywwers ....Hope your all well and enjoying this glorious weather.well had lovely week last week up at dads the weather was a scorcher and we went visiting the Dales!.Sorry if i didnt get round to visiting you all being away and limited interent access was very hard.But i will make big effort this week to see all those lovely desks and PIF gifts everyone has received.this is wee bit of along

If your unsure what im on about Woyww which im sure not many of you are .Well it's the Brain child of our lovely Julia.It's where we spend wedensdays visiting around the world to have anosey at everyones craftroom with out getting told if you fancy joining in then pop by here and check it out!

This week im afraid my desk has nothing really to show you couple ATC's still in the making a tag which i completed yesterday that you can see in below postwhich was started sometime ago.Apart from that im having major problems with my just doesnt want to seem to create.Mind stress dont help to which i have fair bit in my life at the moment.But hey hoe im keeping/ trying to do something daily in hope of a quick hasnt really returned since it's Easter Break which is sometime now.
So i am getting abit worried as never been away this long before!Todays Desk this is what it looks like this morning.....bit bare really!

Now then onto last weeks celebrations and i know my partner of the PIF gift has received as tracked it!So i am able to show you it.Although have not heard from her.It was posted last Wednesday morning whilst on holiday.

Anyways i do hope she liked it !
What ya think??This was my second attempt you will see my first attempt further down which i deceided i wasnt going to send as had this urge then to create something else .Thats when my mojo was alive and i settled for altering a frame.The theme was creativity as we all create in some ways so i thought whoever received it may put it on their wall or in a draw whatever they fancied.
I gessoed the frame then painted with kaiser paint if i remember seems so long ago.Then covered back with designer paper.Added buttons,Cotton reel ,The chipboard scissors and sewing machine are from a set from Maya road.Coloured with ranger silver distress inks.I altered a domino with vintage lady added crackle paint.The main sentiment /Phrase From T Holtz set which i stamped onto a small ATC canvass after gessoing and distressing.Then embossed with black E/Powder.The fringe at the bottom was from Boyes dept store.The woyww letters are distressed tiles with added glossy accents.The wee brass charm is a hevy sewing machine and then i made hat pin for the cotton reel.
Thats it really do hope Shelly likes this !I cant show you my PIF gift as yet not received it ,im not sure wether Julia was sending out or my partner but what i do know she was away.
As soon as it arrives i will put on show for all you Woywwers to see.

Close up of PIF Gift I Sent

Now this was the first attempt at making my PIF which at first loved then had this creative urge t make something else along the lines of "Creativity"thats when the frame was created.So i have sent the frame.The below box is painted and various torn papers stuck onto the box.I have added heart /paddlock to the front with memories on.The letters i have had coloured with my Krylon copper pen.Across the top is an arrangement of flowers prima and beaded flowers intertwined together,then added lace around the side of the lid of the box.distressed the edges

The heart shaped box does open so items can be stored inside.Heres some more views of the box.

I have now deceided this box will be on it's way to Julia as a thankyou for making Wednesday extra nosey .Whatever did we do on Wednesdays before this wonderfull idea was introduced 2 yrs ago??.Wednesdays have not been the same

So please email me hunni( i can get this into the post for you.As a PIF Thankyou gift!

Well i hope you've all had fab week and received some lovely PIF gifts .I will promise to get by you all this week as have more time.

Have fab creative wednesday

love n hugs
