WOYWW.....

Whoops is it Wednesday?  My oh my I'm not gonna miss out on my usual fun even if all is chaos here today   :-)

I will now go and snap what is on my desk today....


 Oh exciting times ahead....My darling hubby has treated me to a set to do lino cutting and printing with so that's what's sitting on my desk waiting for play time.
  • Will I be using it today?..........Nope
  • Why not?.......cos I am baking, laying special tables and preparing the house for all my wonderful family to come this afternoon for our family festive get together.
  • Will I be able to do my rounds of all your blogs today?.....Probably not but I will do my best to catch up with you all very soon.
I just have to say I really hope you are all having a wonderful festive time....I know I am  :-)
I will be back soon.

Love and hugs,
Annie x

SNAP! - I got a lino cutter and a couple of lino sheets to make my own stamps from my DH. Tried the cutter on an eraser and I think there must be a knack, so any tips would be appreciated. Have a happy New Year BJ#15

Hi Annie. i haven't done a lino cut since I was about eleven, but I bet you'll have fun giving it a go. Have a wonderful time with your family. I decided against the weekly blog hop today in favour of a walk with hubby and the dogs along a deserted but sunny beach. In a minute we are off for one more carol-singing session on Vera plaza.

Ooh, Lino cutting...how exciting! I haven't done that since I was at school. And any present with a squeegee in is tops in my book ;)
Sending best wishes for an amazing 2013

Oooo! Lino cutting and printing. I used to really enjoy this at school and still have the pieces I made as I never want to cut them up. I did buy some tools and lino some time ago but not got round to it yet! Need to retire!
Hugs to you and yours.

Trust you enjoyed time with your family. Looks like you are in for lots of fun when you start your lino cutting. I haven't found my desk for four days - too full to the brim with everything the family brought, towels for them to use.....etc. Now they have left us after a fabulous, noisy, messy, crazy time together. Will miss them now they have gone home, but it's been good to celebrate Christmas all together in Wales.

I learned lino printing back in grade school, when art classes were a regular part of elementary school and not "specials" where they don't learn anything at all like nowadays. I still have my brayer from college, no less! I was just thinking of getting some blocks and having a go at it again (not knowing that it's the "in thing" atm, lol).

Hope you had a great time with your family--you live right where I want to move to...ah, dreams...

Cheers,
Nan B #49 in Texas

Wow Annie that sounds really exciting, bet you can't wait to have a go. When I texted you certainly sounded like you was up to your knees in baking :-) bet it was lovely having all the family around. Can't wait to see your Friday smiles. Happy Woyww :-) hugs Kerry xxx
