WOYWW and Post Number 100!

Hi folks as the post title says, this is my one hundredth post! Ta dah!!! I feel like I should have Balloons and fanfares, but TBH, I am rather tired after lots of travelling and a hectic time of late. I've just some back from a fabulous weekend at the Graphicus Retreat in Darlington, which also happens to be the town where my parents live, so I went to stay with them for a couple of nights too. I'll chat about the Retreat another time, when I've got a few finished items to blog, if that's okay.
If you don't know what WOYWW is all about, then visit Julia to find out.
On my desk today is my new all singing, all dancing computer, that my OH bought me as an early Birthday/Christmas present. My old computer used to shut down on me at least once a day, as it was just so old and past it, so I really need a new one. I just need to load a couple of programmes onto this one, and then I'll be away again. I also have some new rubbah to cut out, some lovely new stamps from Elusive Images and there are a couple of unfinished projects from the Retreat sitting waiting to be finished. There is a shabby chic mirror, that was gessoed, painted, and sanded, then stamped with some gorgeous word stamps. I just need to put some embellishments on there to finish it off, then my Daughter can have it for her room. There is also a hanging made with Crafty Individuals products, on a Christmas theme. I just need to stick the last few bits on that, and it will be finished. One piece that I did finish was a vintage style necklace, made with a Tim Holtz frame, and buttons, pearls and crystals.
This was great fun to make, and right up my street. I would definitely make more of these! I think that they would make great embellishments for the front of journals, or on canvases too. Anyway, I hope you have enjoyed visiting my desk today, and if I get time, hopefully, I'll get to yours over the next few days as well. Judith xx
