I have been missing in action lately.  Our Mums have been visiting for the past month and went home!  I have been moving back into my craft room  and have a lot to catch up with.  First, joining in again with WOYWW, not much, as my desk was completely given up for the month to my MIL but some stamps for a release next week, hence they are out of sight!  
 Next I need to sort out some photos and scrapping bits and pieces ready for a crop on Saturday...can't wait after my month of  abstinence!
 My wildlife pic this week is a cracker!  One I have been trying to bag for the past 3 years!  After at least an hour of waiting patiently, I finally got my pics! 

 Okay, back to work for me, lots still to organize after our house move, only got our furniture from our house in Scotland last week so that meant a little more chaos!
Hope to see you join in with WOYWW, pop over to Julia's blog for more details!

Is that a humming bird? wow.

A blank sheet of paper can be the start of something wonderful you know. I'll bet it's nice to be getting your space back again.

What fab photos Debs. I’m not surprised that they took you so long to capture, Humming Birds are so tiny and fast!

You have a nice tidy desk at the moment but I hope it’s not long before it’s back in its old state of creativity.

Happy Crafting!

A reat photo of the little humming bird, Deb - well worth the wait! Is that a big shot pro I see on your desk - have been thinking of buying either the big shot or big shot pro - can't make up my mind if its worth the extra cost.

Amazing shots of the hummingbird Deb, worth the wait. I bet it's a bittersweet feeling... you've got your room back but your close family have now left again. Hope you have fun getting back into it though. Hadn't thought about facebook, I have an account but haven't been on there since last September!! Plenty of avenues to explore, we've had some great suggestions already. Got some rain today and cooler for the rest of the week now, we'd already passed our average number of days over 90F by the end of June and still they kept coming!!

WOW. An almost empty desk. We don't see one of those very often.
Have fun at the scrapbooking crop. Sadly our local one has finished. It used to keep me on track!
The humming bird photos are stunning. Well done! I would have sat there for hours too, but not always with that much success. Kate #131

Amazing and beautiful photographs - what a treat to capture that beautiful little bird!

Your desk looks so inviting! Well done surviving the Crafty Cold Turkey. Your period of enforced abstinence is now at an end and you can indulge your addiction to your heart's content! Lol!

Happy belated WOYWW,

Fab photo Deb, well worth the wait. Enjoy your weekend

Shoshi said...

Thanks for your lovely comment, Deb! Actually, those flowers are only partially finished - just cut out and coloured. After this they are hand-embossed to mould them, and assembled. Watch this (or rather that!) space lol!!
