WOYWW 156 and charity night

I can hardly believe it, last night our charity night for CHAS raised just under £2000. A massive thanks goes to Simone, my Sister in Law, and Karen my crafty mentor (just out of the pic)

Little Miss A picking the first raffle ticket


I have to thank all those WOYWWers who sent me cards and items to sell. You were all very generous with your crafted items and we could not have done it without you.

all the donated cards from our generous crafty friends


The work desk today??? Well, another part of yesterday that made the whole day special was that it was my first birthday as a Mum. I got 2 cards from my 9 month old daughter. Amazing really.....I don't know where she got the time to go shopping.....I also received many crafty things. So today, I get 4 hours when a carer comes in to watch Little Miss A, and I get to go to my favourite crafty place and play with my new stash.



It is also my sisters birthday tomorrow so I will be working on her card and voucher wallet (brill tutorial on canny crafter's blog here).

Apologies for not getting back round to everyone that left comments on last weeks post. It is still a piece of work in action, just slower than i would have liked - but i will get to you all.

If this post leaves you wondering what on earth I am blethering about pop over to Julia's and you can find other desks just as intriguing.
