WOYWW #358

Check out the tab at the top of the page for further information on WOYWWs.   Thanks go to the Lady Julia, our wonderful Hostess.
The desk .....

I am not really working at the desk at the moment .....
I did start measuring out some paper for a matchbox swap, but while I was looking for the new pack of matchboxes, found my Paris 'Fix' book and sat reading that.  It is getting outdated now, La Defense has been improved and Nanterre beyond is looking good, but just to look at the photos and think - come the weekend we will be here, sitting drinking coffee - makes me feel good.
So .... not a lot of crafting going on round here!!!  Pre-packing washing and ironing .... yes! lots!
This time next week I shall be back home, lots of postcards, papers, magazines and other ephemera filled files ready to start another crafting session with all my new 'free' goodies!
Until then have a really good week, Spring is here and British Summer Time has started, light nights........ reasons to be crafting!!!

BTW - I posted about the Balsa Wood on my last post ......


  1. Have a great trip if I don't see you later Christine x Jackie 21

  2. Wow, France beckons. Lucky you. Are you going to the flea market in Paris? Wonderful morning spent there.

  4. I'm excited for you! So I'm not the only one collecting all sorts of ephemera on foreign trips!
    I've just gone back to read your post about the balsa wood. I was one of those who asked you about it. Very interesting, and yes, great results!
    Have a fab trip and I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.
    Thanks for your visit and your kind comment,
    Happy WOYWW,

  8. Hope you have a lot of fun on your trip and collect lots of goodies. Take lots of pictures too! I want to start planning my trip but am waiting just a couple weeks as Mum has another body scan next week and she wants to make sure everything is okay before we start planning.
