WOYWW


Another week has flown by and here we are again on What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday checking out what our crafty blog friends are up to. I am sure the lovely Julia would be happy for you to join in, so just pop over to her Stamping Ground and add your name to Mr Linky.

We had a little birthday girl yesterday so I made her a scrapbox fairy for the front of her card - I think she will love her don't you?

I haven't spent much time in my sewing room this week. I seem to have been out and about a bit instead. So, my work table has been a dumping ground for all the bits and bobs that I have been busy with in the evenings.
AND here is where I spent my creative time in front of the TV with boxes of crafty bits, creating little scrapbox dollies. I will show more on my "Finished by Friday" post, so pop back and have a look. They are all so cute!!


I use beads for the dollies arms and legs. Maxine and I have quite a stash between us, but these were a bargain from our local car boot. Glass ones and wooden ones - perfect!!
I will be making dollies in blue and purple next week!!

Short and sweet today.
Thanks for calling in and leaving such kind and friendly comments.
x Jo

You always find such great things at the car boot sales!! I really should get myself to these things, but they're all on a Sunday around here and I'm usually out playing with the band! It's a cheap way to get beads though, they're such a price in bead shops aren't they? The little dollies are so sweet - I might try and make an angel as I've entered into JoZart's swap whatsit.
Thank you so much again for the pattern and instructions, which must have taken you some time to do. I really am very grateful and will be having a go for the little girl's birthday in the New Year!!
Hugs, LLJ #58 xx

That fairy doll is sooooo cute!! Is it called Scrapbox for a reason--did you just make it from scraps? Any little girl would love that. Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #24

Your dollies are very cute. I used to enjoy that sort of crafting but I haven't the patience or dexterity for it now. The car boot beads were a good find. Well spotted!
