WOYWW! - So much to do, so little time!

My desk looks like an episode from hoarders! Everything is just piled up and nothing seems to be getting done. I have been so sick from Sunday that I really could not even manage the simplest of tasks. The result is that everything is just piling up and I am getting more stressed, which is not good for my health to start with. 
On my desk you will see a box full of candles that need to be personalised asap. It is for the new prefects at our school. Somewhere there you will also see a pile of certificates that need to be written in calligraphy and some other works in progress that are patiently waiting for me to finish them.
 Here is a close up of the last bits of craftiness before my breathing got really bad. The coloured image for a new release over at Digistamps4Joy that should be on a card before Sunday and some new stamps I was playing with.
Hopefully I will be well enough soon to start, in the meantime, I am sitting in bed checking everybody's blogs that I havent had time to do either. Join us at the world's largest blog hop with the queen Julia. I am so happy to see that she is back at the helm today after her recent op. Still praying for a full and swift recovery.

Digistamps4Joy - New release

I am so late this morning! Sorry girls. In my defense, I only got home after two last night. Our Drummies took part in Nationals this week and were crowned Champion of Champions for 2016 last night and we just had to celebrate! I am so proud of these girls, you would swear they were my own kids.
Well, on to the fabulous new release over at Digistamps4Joy. This little beauty by Jen Leeflang is called Pixie Pip and isn't he just absolutely gorgeous? 
Of course he was coloured with my beloved Copics as usual. I decided to add another mushroom that I gave some extra dimension with glitter and glaze. The papers are from mt stash and the cute felt mushroom is from my local habby store. ( I bought it ages ago because it was so cute and just knew that I would use it some day!)

Why don't you hop on over to the rest of the DT to see all there wonderful creations with this weeks release?

WOYWW - It looks better, I promise!

Good morning all you lovely people from WOYWW. I was hanging my head in utter shame when I walked into my playroom this morning and decided to quickly take a bath and get warm before I take a picture for you. While I was in the bath, my trusty helper decided that it was time to clean and wash the table cloths. That is why it looks like this today. It looked a lot worse before she started, i promise! She just made piles of stuff and put it on every flat surface she could find! The result is, I can not find anything, so ... message recieved, i will clean this mess before I start on a new project. LOL

 See what i mean? Piles of stash on every flat surface!
 This is what I decided. I only have a few days of school holidays left, so ... I will clean later, right now, I need to play and make some more mess.

Thank you to all of you who have left such wonderful encouraging messages last time. My problem at school is not really resolved, but I am confident that if I continue loving my girls, it will resolve itself somehow. In the end, love conquers all!
