However as we are going away on Friday and I have finished the list of cards to make, I thought a thorough clear up was in order, I even vacuumed the floor.
Regular readers will remember that last week I was bemoaning that the mojo had gone awol, (and thank you all for your synpathy and encouragement) well I think it was just being difficult because I was under pressure to make a dinosaur card for my great niece.
Finally by Sunday inspiration had arrived and after several false starts and a lot of wasted paper, the mark 4 is finally finished.
I'm not completely happy with it but I've cleared the worktop so it will have to do. I have a set of dinosaur stamps for her for her birthday so I expect her to produce lots of brilliant dinosaur art work.
The other card that had to be made was for my daughter. Regular readers of my drivell will remember that she is being ordained at the end of the month, Sunday in fact, in Ely cathedral, so a card for her was essential, so much easier to create that the dinosaur one.
Well if you are wondering why I'm pouring out all this to strangers, go and visit the leader of our internet community, the wonderful Julia, where we are all friends and you too can be part of the Wednesday desk expose.
I'm not sure how much visiting I will achieve this week, lots to do getting ready to go away, but I will make an effort and I apologise in advance if you visit me and I don't get back to you until my return.
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful WOYWW
