WOYWW #191 - spinning

Hello everyone! Let´s start from Monday - it felt very boring... I made this ATC:
It says: please, go and sit somewhere else, troubles for you, she´s mad
But then i found a blog, where i saw beautiful handspun yarns.  So... I dug up my spindle, and started to practice again, after many, many years. So fun!
Two first experiments

This is real fun: a bit this and that, thin and thick...

...and I do have materials :)
Let´s keep this simple and short - now I need coffee! And then back to spinning :D
More busy - and tidy (a joke) - work desks to peep on Julia´s Stamping Ground blog!
Happy and creative Wednesday to everyone!

WOYWW #190 - TP core book

Last week I started to make a mini album of toilet paper roll cores. Now it´s almost finished. Only the texts are still missing. I had a really good time with this tiny album, and sure am making more of these! If you´re interested, look Vickie´s, and follow her links!
Also the cover is still unfinished:

My great grandparents

My grandfather as a sailor and my grandparents with their motorcycle

Their wedding pic  and my father as a little boy
My parents...

...their wedding pic and I as a child

My wedding pic and our girls when DD2 was born

DD1´s wedding and "one year later" pics. Olivia as a just born baby :)
 There are tags in every core to add text - and maybe I´m adding more pics to the pockets, too.

Happy Wednesday to everyone! You can find more workdesk pics from Julia´s Stamping Ground blog!
In fact this was not my work desk, but the living room carpet... sorry, Julia ;)

WOYWW #189

I wish a creative Wednesday to all WOYWWers!

Vickie has made a wonderful little book of toilet paper roll cores. That was a completely new idea to me. I watched the YouTube links she gave - and found others... and loved the idea so much that I started to make my own book/album.
I spent yesterday looking for pics for the album - and scanning, photoshopping, printing... Then I started with the album, and realized, that I need more pics - and a good PLAN ...and more TP cores :)
This is how it looks now (not much yet, but I´ll show you more next week):

I did a short trip to Stockholm with my DH. Just before we left, post brought me a DT "thank you" packet. And when we came back, in mail box was another packet... that was a challenge win. Lucky me :D ! This is the content of both:

And yes - I came from Stockholm... and YES, this is what came with me (ooops):

On board there was a great show: Tribute to Little Richard performed by Garry More. Here is what I found from YouTube - quite a bad quality, but you can hear the voice...

WOYWW #188

Hello all! I have not participated for a while, ´cause I had no time for bloghopping. Have missed you! Julia asked last week, if she was the only one who thought it was Sunday... No, I missed the whole Wednesday - and I even don´t know which day I had!

But now it is Wednesday and WOYWW at Julia´s Stamping Ground!

Last Monday I got - at last - a packet from Stampotique Originals! First I had a bit difficulties with the payment and e-mail... and then came the Christmas and New Year. But now I´ve got my new stamps. Love them!
I have even been colouring the stamps, which is quite unusual for me. Most of my stamps are the kind that needs no colour... I mean, I´m not a Magnolia-kind of girl :) But these are awesome!
And ´cause it was a while ago I ordered them, I did´n remember what I had ordered - so the packet was a real surprise for me - made by myself :D

I have used Derwent´s Ink Tense pens and water brush pen for colouring. Stamped with black StazOn ink.

Happy Wednesday to everyone!
