WOYWW 569 – the boxes are revealed

Morning everyone. There has been some crafting in my craft room this week, but all digital – and mostly designed on my new love, Canva. If you haven’t used that for crafting, or used it at all, then go and try it out. Here is a scrapbook page I designed.

I have had some new crafty goodies delivered though, so will show them. Firstly, the contents of the Hobbycraft box from last week. You can see why I wasn’t in a rush to unpack it. Just a new glue gun, mat and glue sticks. Useful though, and will be much better having a cordless one.

I had the first Artful box delivered. Always exciting to get a mystery box. I ordered with a discount code and knew it was stash for illustrating/sketching, so not a total mystery. I was pleased to get a sketch book with really nice paper, a magazine and an assortment of pens/pencil/eraser. I love Posca Pens and have a small collection already, and these ones are lovely colours.

I have also ordered some Scrawlr boxes. They have been highly recommended, so now impatiently waiting for the postman each day!

Apologies for not leaving comments on as many blog posts as I was intending to last week. It was an honour to be at No.1 in the list and I was going to visit every blog – but, then my health decided that wasn’t going to be possible. A nasty flare of some painful symptoms meant that I spent a few days on painkillers and doing as little as possible. I started feeling better yesterday (I actually did some cleaning of the house – much needed!), so hoping that I can be back to my usually fairly active self for at least the next week.

This website is being developed daily – with plans to do 2 blog posts per week, plus this one! I have some new affiliate links, which are more closely aligned with papercraft (and other crafts) – one of which came about because I fell in love with some washi tape!

Hope that everyone is ok, getting the groceries they need (I actually have a supermarket delivery booked weekly for the next 3 weeks, so hoping that things are getting back to normal in that respect?) and doing more crafting than me.
