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, 24 September 2014


Well hello Wednesday and hello desk dashers!

Yep it's time to share our spaces over at Julia's Stamping Ground I've been MIA lately - too many birthdays and wedding anniversaries needing my attention but I'm back today with the fall out of my recent Christmas card making.

So right side shows the pens of course but all a pile of stamps and ink pads that I used to create Christmas cards. There's also the piece there ready to make another Beatrix Potter card.

The window side is less chaotic there's a finished Beatrix Potter framed card and bits and pieces used. You can see the sun is shining outside too as you peek through my window!

That's me; done. Shared. Off to sleep now. My quietness is also due to my not being so good. I'm getting done what needs to be done but sleeping lots and resting too. Can't complain though as I did have a few weeks during the Summer when I felt really well. Body didn't work but it didn't matter as I felt well. Always helps.

Take care Zo xx

Oh blinking heck, I'm sorry you're not having a good time at the's not fair. Hope the sleeping helps you get through the worst of it....
Glad you're still crafting though, I haven't done ANYTHING about the C word yet...not a card or a prezzy. Sigh.
Btw, I was never that interested in footy before I met you but I noticed that Rovers are doing really well at the moment! Hooray, hope that's made you happy :-)
Hugs, LLJ 34 xx

Hi, I'm new on the WOYWW, and I try and comment on as many as I can manage. I saw 'gashead' and thought: Bristol! We live in Spain but we had lived in Bristol and Keynsham before moving here.Through your blog I'll be able to keep tabs on what Bristol Rovers are doing.
I'm sorry you're not so well. (Done too much?)Take it easy if you can.
Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.

Hi Zoe, sad to hear you are not feeling so good, hope the sleeping is helping you. I'm trying very hard to prod myself into starting my Christmas cards, and I've managed to get as far as looking at Pinterest for inspiration, lol. Take care, Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #25 xxx

Hello Zoe. Sorry you have had a really difficult summer. Trust you start to feel a bit better, and with your body doing well, too. Lovely Christmas cards there on your desk.
Take care. God bless.

Hope getting some sleep is helping! A little bit different to me nodding off in front of the TV - mines an age thing!!!! Love that you have started Christmas cards even though you are not so well! Don't overdo it! Chrisxx 45

Hi Zo,

My mouth drools every time I see your marker collection! I'm good about resisting the urge, however!

I did find a very cute Halloween stamp on the sale bin yesterday. I think she'll be making an appearance next week on my desk.

Happy belated WOYWW
Peace, Kay (31)
