WEEK 51 .... one week left to create a masterpiece ...not

I’m back …just in time to blog Week 51 .

PLEASE forgive me for not leaving comments last week but a huge thank you to every one that popped by mine and left comments …even though I was away.

I had a great catch up … reading all your comments over a very large coffee this afternoon …but I think I will need a gallon and a huge cream cake ..or three … before I tackle a catch up on everyone’s blogs …I will deal with every ones WOYWW this week first …back permitting

I am afraid my area is totally clear


… not a thing in sight…but just out of eye shot is the project that I HAVE to tackle this week, for Wk52 …I am soooo behind that I am going to have to lock myself away for several days and pray I get inspiration …..I sort of know what I want to do … but will it work for me in time? I started it all, way back, with plenty of time to create something worth showing but then I became distracted by life.


I have been visiting the GS’s, … then cat sitting while they all popped over to Ireland for a few days and then spent DS’s birthday with him …even though he was shattered after the long journey home that day. Emma bought him a caterpillar cake lol and he loved it …he really is still a kid at heart


Here are my two cat charges .... 15 year old Tig (ginger) and just over a year old , Harley ... short for Harlequin.

I did do a quick Zentangled Birthday card for DS ….he loved it and just kept looking at all the patterns for ages.


DD sent over a pair of Gruffalo’s for Ben and Jake as its one of their favourite stories …they loved them … their eyes lit up and of course Emma had to read the book …again …and again.


I also managed to get two really nice separate shots of the boys to go in a pair of new frames … so hard now, as they never stop moving. I will bore you with a display of my better shots later in the week …. sorry to those who really are not onto cute photos … just steer clear of the next post if you prefer that a Nana and her camera were seperated ... never to be reunited in your life time LOL


Take Care xx

Angie; I love your remark that you were distracted by life--I think I may borrow that for some of the times I don't get done what was intended.
Fire away with the photos of grandsons and cats--I will enjoy them.

I love seeing photos of your DGS's they are growing so quickly!!! it's lovely to see them so enjoying a good book, long may that continue!!! shame about the empty work space though ;) sometimes crafting has to take a backseat. I'm sure now your home you'll find that inspiration for our challenge :)
P.s great cat photo!!!

I won't be bored!! And being distracted by life is incredibly important. And a cear desk for me is scarey - hope you find it an inspiration!

Arkansas Patti said...

So happy you had such a grand trip.
Bring on the kids and pet pictures. My favorite creatures.
Being distracted by life definately trumps blog. Just enjoy.

Darcy said...

wow Angie, quick mess up that desk!

I havent started my woyww 52 piece yet, might not even get it done.

Great card, they are mesmerising to look at.

Kay said...

yes life can be a distraction sometimes, but what lovely distractions you had. Your grandsons are so beautiful! I love that zentangle.... wish I could do them :(

Great to have you back again. The photos of cats and kids are lovely. Looking forward to the rest of your photos soon, and to your WOYWW project, whatever that might be!

I love seeing all of your photos ... cute or otherwise :0) That mat looks ready for anything ... wish mine did :0) As for the Zentangle card ... stunning!

minnie_mac said...

I have a sneaking suspicion that it won't be long before that craft mat disappears under a sea of crafty stuff.

I've never seen a zentangle before, intriguing!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I would love to cat sit those beauties. And it looks like they are NOT camera shy. How awesome. Nice way to tease us about Week 52. You know I'll be here.

I thought I left a message earlier today, but apparently it didn't post. I'm glad I returned to be sure. Otherwise, I would have missed these darling cats I can make Bleubeard jealous over!

angelwhispers said...

mckinkle said...

Hi Angie. I know what you mean about the back thing! Eek. I'm wondering if it's a 'scrapper's' thing that we all get sitting at the desk/pc! Take all of the photos that you need Angie. Love 'em. I'm with you on that....can't have too many. As for your son's Zentangle card...FAB - as always. TFS. ~Glen~
