WOYWW December 22nd

I am back and I went to The Gambia.
I have caught a virus so not crafting till I feel better.
I stroked the crocodile and it was dry and lumpy for those that asked. I will be back when I get over this bug. My throat is like sandpaper:-((((

Where am I
I have shaken hands with a crocodile. Yes it is a real one, they have been fish fed so not interested in humans. LOL
I have eaten the best fish and chips here on the Atlantic coast in my whole life.
Leave and answer in your comments to win my new plate of verse stamps.
The competition will finish when I return if i return coz it is so warm here, the sun is shining and not a cloud in sight.
Leaving this up for another week. On my way back to the UK today.

Don't forget to hop over to Julia's for the weekly snoop.

Fabric Paper Swap

This was for a swap. I covered a small book with Fabric Paper. I learned how to make Fabric Paper from an early edition of Cloth Paper Scissors.
The little tags are made of wood.
The edges are decorated with TH tissue tape

Key Chain

I made this at the Vickie Stampers Stamp Club. Got one more charm in the making to add and I am pleased with the results.

Close up of the Spellbinders album I made at one of their workshops.
I made a few changes. I added book rings instead of the ribbons and some more embellishments.
Next I have to decide on some photos.
Inside the album
Still collecting Vintage Sewing items for my dresser. I was too busy prepping for Japan Day to work on it
A peek at one corner of the room where I tipped stuff out to sort. I am trying to find some Fabric Paper I made to finish a swap piece. It is still hiding from me.
My craft bags are packed as I am off to stay with a crafting friend for a few days.

I have landed in the Midlands and messed up my friend Leo's dining table. LOL. Too much fun

Japan Day October 17th

Today Jo and I attended The Japan Day as vendors at The Midland Hotel Manchester.
We had a couple of tables booked. Jo worked hard on Make and Takes which proved extremely popular. We were busy all day and it was great to meet up with friends from some of the Yahoo lists and others from Blog Land. I received a lovely post it note wall hanging from LizzyBobs. Thanks again.
I managed to escape to take the following photos so ENJOY.

It's Japan day on Sunday and I am halfway through an Origami book using some of our new Oriental stamps.
I have lots to do packing items for the event and I am not getting anywhere fast because I had food poisoning at the weekend. I spent 4 hours in A and E in hospital in Liverpool:-(((

The new images just in front of my book. They are hand drawn by my good friend Jo

Some of the rubber I have been packing and pricing among other things. I haven't had time to do anything else and being ill hasn't helped so no work on my mini dresser yet but I am collecting my items together.
