WOYWW #158 - They Keep Multiplying!! - UPDATED

Morning, Evening, etc wherever you are in the world. Welcome to another WOYWW, facilitated so adeptly by our great leader, Julia at the Stamping Ground... where would we be without this each week?? - up a creek without a paddle, or an excuse to blog!! - Welcome, also, to my week from a little hell!!! Mum has been poorly, with a cyst in her nether regions - oh very nicely evaded!! - which necessitated calling out of hours service at 8.30am on Saturday morning no less!!! And THAT was a battle and a half... she has antibiotics and a sore spot... and has done much complaining of same ALL week, until today...

And what of myself, I hear you cry - well, maybe not but she will tell you anyway, you know what she's like!! - My blood pressure is no longer elevated... no, it's UP and mostly high!!! OMG, I NEVER have high BP, even carrying 2 babies... oh well. Freddie bullied me into going to the docs on Friday. And did that get it sorted??? - no actually, she saw a "doctor" who is not her own who told her to keep monitoring it!!! drip!!! Various appointments with social type peeps and a visit with dear daughter to the hospital for a check on that ankle, have precluded a second visit, but I PROMISE to go on Thursday morning, honest... - yeh, we will believe that when we see/read it

So what delights do I offer here then?? - opps, be prepared for that desk again, folks, you know how sluttishly untidy she is!!

OMG I HATE blogger... I have been trying, with absolutely NO success, to load photos here... they are loaded, in fact, but won't save, so only this text will save... so sorry not to have pics... kinda defeats the object eh??? Suffice it to say the desk is untidy and the new album is coming along SO well....

Any ideas?????
Love and light
Frankie

Well at last I think I have cracked it, so pictures without more ado!!!
 See...told you it was messy!!! And it's just how some of you imagined eh???
 They are multiplying!!! The latest one, nearest the camera, is an amalgamation of a design by Laura Denison and a similar one from Kathy Orta... using my own measurements, so that it will fit in the suitcase!!
 I am using a mixture of DCWV Tradewinds and Bo Bunny Weekend Market - which IS to die for... I now have to buy more sheets to sniff and stroke, after cutting into so many of them - that sent the BP high again too!!! tee hee
 And this is my cover, with some triple embossing using antique gold, a lapis blue and some gorgeous Egyptian stamps... well, enough already, and so SORRY for the topsy turvy nature of my post... I have used a different browser to get this far, so hurray and farewell!!!
Love and Light
Frankie

PS Thanks for coming back, if you did!!!! and here is my tag for TIO, as a bonus prize!!! tee hee - Industrial Chic, no less, so why not join in?? xx

Judy said...

Poor Darlin' I wish I could fly over and give you a Great Big Hug!!

It never rains but it pours sometimes doesn't it. When my elderly father was alive, we seemed to almost visit the hospital every week.Hours and hours of waiting...He always got poorly either late at night or on weekends!Have you tried "Google Chrome"..that fixes things.
Love typing along to your music.VERY soothing!

Oh my! What a tale of woe this week! Let's hope all sore bits and grumbles are being mended! Happy WOYWW (even without a desk to admire - who needs photos when we can imagine?!)- I forgot to play this week!

Poor you, sending you hugs trace x

Helen said...

Hi Frankie Poor you you have been in the wars and to top it of Blogger plays you up too! I can be of no assistance with the photo problem but I will do my best to imagine your mess. It is really really messy!! Wishing you a healthier week this week. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 14

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

So sorry you had a week from hell! I really hope you get that BP sorted soon, Mum's bum clears up and your daughter's ankle heals up nicely. *Somebody* needs to run away from weeks like that one!

Cheers,
Susan #116

Julia Dunnit said...

I did immediately wonder how you are, tale so f your Mama's suffering is never good for you, naturally. It never rains, huh. I think some down time is just what the Dr is telling you, so..don't worry about pictures...have the next couple of days in slomotion.

Kemma said...

So sorry to have missed the photo!
Thanks for the (pretend) peek!

Calming thoughts coming your way :-)

My name is Cindy said...

Weirder and weirder.... your post says no comments but there are plenty when you go to add one.... blogger was playing me up a bit thhis morning, I wonder if they've 'improved' something else that is going to make life difficult.

What a week you've had - but it can only get better right? Please look after yourself, (I can talk I have t be on the floor before I go to the doctors and then it is quite difficult to do) Hope the next week is better, and with piccies!! TFS Happy WOYWW Cindy #39

sandee said...

I have come to the conclusion that blogger is a man, never listens, very uncoperative, a slob, lazy to say the least...oh wait, that's my ex husband I am describing....never mind ::innocennt look::...waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Erika said...

Hi I hope you and your mum feel better soon. Great desk space so much going on. Thanks for sharing, hugs Erika. #41

Tertia said...

Sounds like you and I should have stayed in bed this week and waited till it was over before we emerged! Hope the bp is down, will propably be normal once mommy dearest is feeling better.
Loving the albums and the tag.
Happy WOYWW

Sue said...

Ouch your poor Mum, and poor you for having to cope with everything - no-one should have to put up with Blogger throwing a strop! Your workdesk doesn't look too bad to me, and your tag is wonderful x

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Wonderful things on your work desk. Your cover looks fantasttic, great texture on it. Also love your tag, beautiful colors.

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Hope everything improves for the rest of the week - your Mum, your BP, Blogger.. well, just everything really!
I showed Julia the hanging, she was amazed at the beauty and complexity of it. It's wonderful. Even my big brother, who follows my blog, wants Rhys to take it for him to have a good look at!!
Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh that Blogger and its picture uploading issues. Every once and while Blogger and I both forget which browser we are using and work fine. Usually it remembers before I do and lo and behold I have to switch. Why?! Why! WHY!??!!? The tag and the albums, and even the messy desk are looking good. I am like you. I need paper to hold and stroke, and to sniff and maybe even lick it. Hubby just rolls his eyes.

Hazel said...

You have so much of interest here - such amazingly creative project - I love your crafting and am in awe of your talent - Hazel WOYWW #82 x

Helen said...

i did come back - to see your Stampman piece originally but so glad I got to see your desk... yes pretty much as I imagined... (i.e. like mine...) Love the Industrial Chic tag....I had a ball with this recipe!

Julia Dunnit said...

Wow, never mind untidy..I can't get over how prolific you are..and what wonderful pieces you're working on again! I was at Jan's yesterday and she and G3 very proudly showed me the hanging - in real life, it's a million times more interesting, fiddly, creative...wonderful.

monique said...

Love all the tings on your desk . Your tag is fabulous

Gabrielle said...

I popped back to admire your Industrial Chic tag in person... I love the layers and details you added to this - I love that lady! Thank you for making my recipe come alive!

Valerie said...

You are very creative! Your books are beautiful and so is your tag. Much craftiness going on in your workspace! Valerie #26

Queen Of Toys said...

Sounds like you have had a week of total hell, makes my headache seem like nothing at all. Love your books they are fantastic, especially the Egyptian one. I think I will pop back and see what else you have done to it at another stage.

Have a great crafting week

Hi Frankie. I'm doing my usual thing of doing the rounds in leisurely fashion and those pics were worth waiting for!!! Your books are beautifully finished, and the desk is a glorious ramshackle.
Take care,

I'm glad you are doing well, and hope that by now your Mum is too. I love your works' sculptural feel. As to your studio, art is a messy thing. I'm kind of OCD, so I have to organize before I start a new project -LOL! Blessings!
