Hello everyone and
happy WOYWW
I wasn't able to join in for the last couple of weeks due to work load and boy did I miss it!
now, Im posting this today but I have to say I possibly wont be able to visit any/many of you
today, I promise to try later in the week...huge apologies

if you have made it to me Hello and Thank you so much for stopping by!

So my desk, is a bit placed, I have cards made yesterday ready for delivering
some other small ones Ive made waiting to be written and then on the far left are the place names Im making for a wedding taking place this Saturday.
I also have table names, table plan and post box matching the black and white with polka dot theme. It;s so striking I love it! I cannot wait to see the photographs from the big day!
Also can you see that foam tape How big is that roll hehe
I got 2 on ebay, they arrived and are 13 inches across. Think they are draught excluder, but work and are sticky! May last a while LOL

I thought Id also show you Belle and how she is often found in here, bless her she has her own doggie sofa, has taken over an armchair in the dining room but chooses to squash in that gap bent round the table leg hehe

OK that's it from me, have a lovely day everyone
and most importantly for those in the UK
Keep warm!
