When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

A quote from April Green's - Bloom For Yourself Journal

Wednesday, 31 July 2013


Isn't it just fab that for the past I don't know how many Wednesdays we've been commenting on the warm weather?! I've actually worn a skirt (not the same one obviously) for nearly 3 weeks. I mean. What is going on?! The sunshine makes me smile though, but the heat and humidity......well........melts me!

Right shut up Zoe I hear you say we want to see you desk - 

Yep fan still going strong!

The tools always on my desk plus that black thing next to fan is another bag album I'm making. Since making my 1st one I have a few ideas so starting to put it into reality.

Eeeeek very excited Zoe here - yep that's a whole Project Life bundle. I couldn't resist getting the Midnight version. I'm not going to do a week by week thing as some do more a page layout for different memories and moments type thing.

Window Sill full of Some Odd Girl images.

Right that's me, being all brief today. Hoping to visit a few more of you than I have of late. Thank you for all of your visits though, they really do perk me up when I'm feeling rubbish. Right dash over to Julia's - The Stamping Ground and join in, dash out and get nosing!!
Take care Zo xx

We're still toying with PL. at the moment we're making our own from stash but the kits are tempting.

Very interesting!What it is coming?

You're brave, having a fan one in a room filled with paper!! Lol. I bet it's all clamped down firmly and anyway, I'm only jealous because a fan is a really sensible idea and I wished I had one too!!
The holiday was fab, we enjoyed ourselves so much, none of us wanted to come back..... It was a gorgeous cottage, fab surroundings, lovely to meet Rachel and just a really good break.
Are you still doing any craft things for your charity? Wipso contacted me because she's shutting up her blog shop and wanted to know if I could use any of her stuff. I can't at the moment, but I did mention a few folk who do charity stalls and your name was one of them. So, if you do/don't want stuff, perhaps you could leave a message on her blog. Sorry if I've overstepped the mark, just thought you might make use of some of her very lovely stuff. Hope that's ok....
Hugs, LLJ 20 xx

Gosh, this WOYWW day it's almost cold in the house - I moved my mac off the desk to under the desk so at least my feet are toasty warm :) Odd girl images look interesting, but they will be superb once you colour them in your style :)

Happy WOYWW!

Hi Zoe, no need here for a fan now - wouldn't dare have one in the craft room, I can just imagine the chaos that would cause, and got enough problems with The Boss stalking all over my desk, whisking trouble up with her tail :) I couldn't resist the PL bundle too, though I already had the Jade collection of cards only, and was saving up for the rests when the C&C offer came along - such a saving :) I plumped for the Rain collection - thought the colours would be good for heritage photos. Look forward to seeing your PL album as you fill it. Take care and try not to melt completely :) Elizabeth x #16

Hi Zoe, I'm with you on this weather - the sun improves my mood no end but the humidity at times is a little much - esp at work where it's been over 30 most days. Not complaining tho!! Loads of images there, should keep you busy colouring, good luck with the PL.

Helen said...

So glad it's been a little cooler here the last few days (we won't talk about what it's meant to be like tomorrow!) Have fun with the Project Life... Helen 6 said...

Zo what is project life thought I would show my ignorance lol. Love Alison xx

okienurse said...

great looking desk Zoe! I hear that the weather has cooled off a bit today so I hope you are not as melty. I am wondering about the PL book also. Is it like the Smash books here in the states? I keep seeing it mentioned around but have no knowledge what it is! Guess me a Google have a date later. Have a creative week! Thanks for visiting my desk and leaving such a nice comment. Vickie #80

Laura said...

I got the jeans and sweatshirt out day before yesterday!
Think it'll be back to skirts soon though
Keep us updated on your PL

Daniella said...

Keep wearing skirts!! Stay cool! Luckily, our heat wave left, but in it's place came rain and humidity :(
Your last bag album was so awesome that I can't wait to see the next one!! You are a very talented lady my friend!!
How's Baxter?

Darnell said...

Okay, I have a question for you. Are you Zo or are you Zoe or doesn't it matter? I have a fan in the Playhouse, too. It really helps and so far I haven't forgotten to turn it AWAY from the loose bits! Good luck with your project life and I hope you have less humidity, but still lots more sunny days! Thanks for coming to visit me! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #118

I love warm weather and look forward to it returning here in the Southern Hemisphere soon! I will have to take a peak at your older posts as your bumbag album has me intrigued and I love the wonderful stash of Project Life Goodies you have, can't wait to see them put to use. Have a great week and a very late but happy WOYWW! Danie #25

Julia Dunnit said...

I'm late, so have already seen your PL bundle..yum! Love the idea of you in the same skirt for three weeks!! Did you have a good day showing your chum how to make the bag you're a really patient teacher.
