Firstly, how did we get to week 566 in this global craft desk hop?! Obviously we need to keep going until 1000 now, and that is more than 8 years away. Yes, I actually got the calculator out and worked that out. If you want to join in with ‘What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday’, then go to Stamping Ground.
I am late today, which is better than missing out a week entirely, which I did last week. I have actually been busier than usual since Lockdown started in the UK. Plus, last week I was not too well – high temperature and even less energy than normal. It wasn’t a fever though and no persistent cough (just the constant tickly throat caused by hayfever, we think).
Another thing taking up my time and energy is coping with a delivery from Tesco. No longer can the driver bring the boxes through to the kitchen and help unload. Now he leaves them on the doorstep in a lot of plastic bags and I have to wipe down/remove external packaging, carry through to kitchen in a plastic laundry basket (which is disinfected afterwards), take bags and packaging straight out to the bins in the garage, wash my hands several times and leave some items in a separate area of the porch or pantry, if they are not needed immediately. Post and parcels are handled the same way, with a quarantine area in our boiler room for at least 24 hours. I used to work professionally in food hygiene and cleaning practices, but I haven’t gone as far as putting a full white suit/mask on!
I hope that everyone is well(ish) and keeping busy. There still aren’t enough hours in each day for me to get fully through any To Do List, let alone the long list of things I would like to do.
My photos today are of yesterday, as then I was doing some crafting. I used my Cricut Maker to make some Easter cards and cute bunny boxes for the granddaughters. I also designed some Easter cards in Procreate and printed them out. Just one more card to design today for an uncle/aunt who are churchgoers and will appreciate a card with a religious theme.
Today I am packing up all the parcels and cards – several birthdays this month as well – for the courier to collect tomorrow. Therefore, my craft room is very messy and very uncrafty.
Stay Safe everyone. I am intending to do some mixed media crafting in the coming week, but I won’t promise anything, as I may just eat hot cross buns and watch YouTube!
ps It is noted that a few people are not able to leave a comment on my posts. I will go back and check settings again, but there are also many who are having no problems, so it is all a puzzle to me. Email me at email@example.com if you ever want to get in touch.
