WOYWW #162 - Good Stuff v Bad Stuff

Morning, evening, night, afternoon wherever you are in the WOYWW world... what a dreary, miserable, wet, dull, rainy, disappointing (tennis!!) painful, depressive, dark, dismal, galling and breakdown (horse lorry) week it has been... bad stuff eh??

Good stuff - Thank goodness for my weekly snoopy dodge around your fab blogs, and for your WONDERFULLY supportive comments on my own... last week was particularly nice that so many of you were glad for me winning my fight!!! and a plus, my dear readers... the whole new prescription arrived in Friday, so no struggling on until August !!! Yippee from me and mum...

Bad stuff - Tried to take the big mare to her first jumping show of the year, what with one thing and another... all set, picnic packed, horse loaded, boys on board, my mother safely left behind!!, everybody happy.... few miles travelled, then lumpy engine and no go!!! Horse was on for hours and we never did get there... we were brought home in a pick up and Freddie waited with the mare and was towed home... anyone know of a mobile lorry mechanic????

What's that you are shouting ???? Pest - oh no, I hear you now it's DESK isn't it?? Well here goes
Not half bad, eh?? Those of you who know it well, will see that most of the same stuff is out but there is a new occupant!! Yep, I finally had to resort to my SADlight or get further down in the dumps!!! Had it on a couple of days now, and hope it helps...

So how did the TIO tag turn out??
I am really leased with it, as it has lots going on and it's fun... it's a great recipe this week so why not have a look see and do it yourself!! We are starting a feature called DreamBoat3 where we choose our faves and pick 'em out for a mention... no prizes unfortunately, but a bit of pride for the shout out!!

Next few things are sneaky previews of stuff made for my good friend, back saviour and one-time-Taiji teacher, Peta... but can't show the whole cards as she reads here and has not seen them yet!!! Stuff for her family...
for her nephew
for her niece
for her sister
for herself for displaying her soaps at the fayres she does - a vintage suitcase like those I made for myself, but in different papers... woo, it's SO pretty!! 

Anyways, that's all folks... the good stuff is all the art I have made this week... I am just feeling so creative, even though in pain, so I craft to forget it... just in my own ickle world - are YOU like that I wonder?? with a time warp in your crafty space doorway!!?? Well I am away now to try to sleep - that's a hoot, but I have to try. Thanks for ALL your support, it means SO MUCH to me.
Love and light
Frankie

Oh wow, that was some week, but sometimes I guess we have to take the bad with the good... Love the idea of that lamp, with this summer I think that's something a few of us could do with, hope to hear weather it actually works....

Well, Frankie, you certainly have had a rollercoaster of a week. Your creativity seems to have been fuelled by it though! What absolutely awesome work. I love the steampunk tag, and how you have turned the woman's bustle skirt into a hot air balloon! Awesome... I really enjoyed your post this week.

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog - glad you like my desk!

Hi Frankie, that's some week you've just had! However, your artwork is fabulous. I love the flowers among the cogs are just gorgeous. Happy WOYWW and I do hope you have a better week ahead. Elizabeth x #23

Neesie said...

What a week...but then you produce such wonderfully stunning creations. How do you do that? I think not only does your door have a timewarp thingy on it...it also gives super powers! I want one ~ where did you get it?
My daughter lives in Edinburgh and has a light box which she's just dusted off...can't imagine having to do that in July but there you go... the world's gone mad!
Really enjoyed my visit and hope you have a great week ~ Neesie #14
