WOYWW

Where on earth has April gone?  I am only taking part in WOYWW once a month at the moment and it struck me last night (when I took this photo) that this is the only day I can play as I am on a school trip next week.  Anyway hope you are all well and I am hoping to look round quite a few desks later today or tomorrow even though the children are off school.

Here is my craft table which I was working on yesterday and probably still will a bit this afternoon so that I can craft and catch up with the tv programmes I taped last week whilst we were away in sunny Bournemouth:

The layout on it has been ongoing for about 2 years - seriously I am not joking here - it really doesnt do much for me but I am still battling on and getting on with old photos that might not look good aesthetically but really tell an important story about my children growing up.  I am also going to turn that butterfly blue and use this layout in my challenge below - as I noticed I have already used something old, something new and something borrowed on it!  I am also sure I will get more layouts done to suit this challenge as my mojo is back with a vengeance at the moment.

Thanks for looking in and I hope to pop by your desk shortly too.  If you are reading this not via Julias then pop on over and join in the fun too!

yay-hey Tesco's baby wipes I use them, they are soooo cheap, trouble is they get 'stolen' from my craft room! Will look forward to seeing your never ending project, I have a never ending story that spanned a decade!

Happy WOYWW

Two years - one layout - that will take you a while to do the whole thing, then!! have a great day.

I must say, I have never worked on one LO for 2 years! You go girl, for not giving up on it.
Enjoy the school trip.
Happy WOYWW

Cor, I have things unfinished but doubt I would have the staying power to pick them up and do them. In fact I probably could not find them. Well done you, hope to see the completed article before too many mjore years have passed LOL.
Take care - Hugs, Neet x

2 years?!?! Blimey. But hey, better that they rushing to complete it and then wishing you hadn't. I made that mistake with my wedding photos. Hate the album now. On the other hand, if I had waited I bet I would STILL hate it as the styles and my taste changed :)

Nice to here of someone with a rockin' mojo, as so often people say "I've lost it" - embrace it and use it before it goes on holiday again LOL!

I know the feeling! I was doing a petit point of a "pas de deux" when my daughter was learning ballet, about age 10? She's just turned 30 with children of her own and sad to say, I STILL haven't finished it! Will I ever? lol TFS

Lucky! I'm not the only slow crafter. But it's perfect when you have fun when you are crafting.

Oh so laughing at you girl! Tow years on one page! I am not the only one that does that........Happy WOYWW!

Two years on a LO must be a record but I see from you next post that you’ve eventually finished it and it looks great.

Happy Easter and Crafting!
