Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW 152 - new things

Morning - firstly can I thank all of you lovely people who pop by my blog, it really helps to cheer me up when things aren't so good with my conditions, and makes me smile, always a good way to forget about the pain!

Last week I shared my new wire coiling Gizmo, so many people asked where I got it from, did I make it etc, so today I thought I'd share with you where I got it from - Beader's Companion the link will take you straight to the Gizmo page so you can see for yourself!

Right today's desk -

I took this just a while ago, using my Ottlite to illuminate the desk! There's the new Bo Bunny papers pads, Humphrey's Corner stamps, and some images I'm colouring. The Black and white one I did yesterday, as I wanted to practice black hair, am pleased with it, it's not perfect but it's usable!

 And this Christmas tag - last year I received a few Christmas tags from crafty friends and thought they were fab ideas to send, so I'm making some of my own this year!

Right that's me done, I know I won't get round you all this week, I'm really not feeling too good and pain levels have stepped up a few notches today, but I will try my best! 

Ooh nearly forgot, pop over to Julia's to see what all this sharing lark is all about! 

Take care Zo xx

Di said...

Wow, super colouring - nothing at all wrong with it! Is she holding a Pro Marker or something - perfect for a crafter :) Hope you feel better soon - Di xx #49

Sorry to hear you're not feeling so good, Zoe. I think we all need some warm sunshine don't we!!!
Bo Bunny papers are just gorgeous aren't they. I buy the 12x12 but it has to be a special LO to use them!!
That colouring is amazing too. I wish I could get hair that good.
Have fun with your tags.

Sorry you're not too good at the mo, I appreciate your visit. I really love that tag, the colours are so vibrant. Having a drool over your BoBunny papers. Also loved your tag from yesterday. I don't have any promarkers, the price puts me off but they do look great.
Take care #73

Gorgeous colouring!

Neesie said...

Perfect for a crafter Zo. You're colouring and shading are brilliant. I love her huge eyes.
It's getting to look a lot like Christmas here just now...dark wet day today so you're tag is very fitting.
Some Ozzie's actually celebrate Christmas in July ~ the middle of our winter ~ which for me is a little odd, but fairy lights etc look much better than in the middle of the summer.
Have fun with WOYWW ~ Neesie #22

Lovely colouring Zoe, I could never be that good in a month of Sundays! Love the tag too and great new goodies. Sorry to hear that you're not doing so well, I'm sure all the rain isn't helping either, makes me feel down if it's around for a few days.

Deb's Pen Pot said...

No button jars this week - what's wrong with you?! :0) These character girls look really good when brought to life by your fab colouring...though we really must come up with a good term for that, 'cause I feel like I'm talking about children, crayons and colouring books when I say that! Have a fab WOYWW, love Debs xxx
