WOYWW 166 (I must have been busy!)

Morning everyone.  Just a quick post as I am out and about today.  I will be back to have a good old rummage around your desks later!  To anyone thinking 'How Rude!' click on the link and you too will soon have an open invitation to join lovely crafty folk at play!

I can't believe my last post was WOYWW 165.  I must have been busy as I didn't notice I haven't posted since then.  I am even late with my Tag Tuesday - tag still in my head.  So what can I share with you today?......Great British Nails!!  We went to the Olympics on Saturday and I found some fab nail stickers for the occasion.  They are still on - just about!  We had a wonderful time as we were lucky enough to be in the Athletic Stadium when Team GB took 3 golds!  How fab is that!  The noise from the crowd (me included) was amazing.  I have never witnessed anything like it.  I have also just about recovered my voice and the use of my legs after a massive step workout to get to our seats!  It was worth the climb though as the view was amazing and we sat right above the Olympic Flame.  One more photo to share and then on with the craft stuff.....Did I say short post!? :-)

What a fabulous view.  The stadium is just filling up.

On my chair are two packs ready to go for my classes on Friday.  They have a surprise element that I can't show you as....It is a SURPRISE!!  On the floor is my bag that has 3 other card packs in it.  Only one more pack to go!  I'm thinking I need a bit of girly pink for my last card!

On my desk are all the projects from last week, still not much done there because of card class prep so it will be next week before I get to those.  I did try to get better organised with my scraps though.  For a long time they have been in colour families in plastic wallets.  I think they don't get used as much as they should as they are in an out of the way cupboard so I thought I would treat myself to this hanging file storage box.  Now I have a dilemma as it is fit to burst already and I don't have all the papers in it yet.  I need to decide if I go for box number 2 or downsize my scraps.  I think it will be much handier to keep next to me when I craft whatever I decide.  Also in the photo is a ray of last! my Lavinia stamps, a Rudolf card from last years classes, a Christmas Tree Advent project still blank, my ink dusters and a couple of cards waiting to be written and sent.

Must be off now.  There are some clothes with my name on and a couple of folk to get out of bed!  See you later.  Have a great week and thanks for popping by....... X

I almost forgot Congratulations to all (including me!! click here if you want to see my tag) that won this months Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2012.  Great acknowledgement of the talents of the WOYWW gang!  I am so excited - emails from Mario and a shopping voucher for Simon Says Stamp!!!   Really going this time XXX

    What an amazing week! Not only seeing arguably the best night for athletics at the Olympics but also winning on TH 12 Tags. Love how the three woywwers are right there together in the middle! Love those nails too, lots of medal winners sporting nails for their countries I've noticed.

  13. Wowzers Helen! You lucky lucky girl to be at the Olympics on thAT day and what a view you had too! Definitely one for, "Do you know where you were on this date..?" Superb.

  15. Lucky you to have been in that stadium! What an experience.
    I need several folders for my snippets. At the minute they are in six box files and they are all bursting at the seams. I do try to use them up, but I still keep creating more. Every now and then I use the plainer card pieces to cut lots of ATC blanks. Thay uses up quite a few, but I don't make as many ATCs as I used to so...!

    I have blog candy on offer so feel free to sign up to be in with a chance to win.

  22. Well done, winning with your tag, Helen. And what an experience, going to the Olympics! That photo is stunning. Fancy ending up with seats up there! Love the nails, too. I remember a great deal being made of Ellie Simmonds' Union Jack nails at the Paralympics last time, and now all the athletes seem to be doing it lol! (And most of the spectators too it seems!)

    Happy belated WOYWW,

  23. Love the nails. We went to the Olympics on the first day and saw team GB ladies play volley ball. It was an amazing experience and now it's all over. What will we do with our time now? Craft I guess

    You look so organised!
