WOYWW 549 – a few crafty bargains

Morning, everyone. I am up and in my craft room fairly early today, and decided to get this typed before the day runs away with me.

I have two photos for you today. The first shows some fab Dazzles stickers. I have grand plans to use them on scrapbook layouts, but they definitely couldn’t stay in the shop at that reduced price.

The second shows the Crayola Twistables I treated myself to for Bible journaling. Again, these were in offer in Tesco. I also bought the set of alphabet stamps from Lidl at their usual bargain price. I have stamped out some names ready to make gift tags. I love the bright colours.

Did you get any ‘Black Friday/Cyber Monday’ bargains?

My Psoriasis is slowly healing. At least I am able to drive again and sleeping well at night (with the help of strong antihistamines!). We are helping my stepdaughter and her family move back to Pembrokeshire, so have been busy viewing houses/sorting out paperwork/loading and unloading vans etc. Our house and garage is full of bags/boxes/furniture. Hopefully she can make the final move before Christmas.

Christmas – are you ready? I need to get a few more cards in the post that I had missed off my original list. There are a few presents to buy, and I will be starting wrapping later. There are some that need to be sent off with a courier. I put up our tree and decorations on Sunday (busy with the chapel Christmas fair and a craft workshop on Saturday), turkey to be collected on Christmas Eve, and otherwise we are planning a fairly quiet time. Not sure if and when any family will be here, but it won’t be the busy/hectic week that we had last year. I have put my foot down and told hubby that I cannot cope with preparing big meals.

Breakfast time now (for me and the dog), so will get this published. If you would like to join in with this global crafty blog hop, then skip over to Julia’s Stamping Ground.

About Ali

Hi, my name is Ali Wade. I am 49 at the time of typing, and live in rural Pembrokeshire with my semi-retired/dairy farmer/cycling addict hubby! I have been blogging since 2012 over on Blogger, and in 2019 I transferred over to WordPress (which is definitely a steep learning curve!).

What started as a simple blog, mainly about crafting, is now progressing into a website that will showcase my sources of passive income. I have Fibromyalgia, Hyper Mobility Syndrome and Psoriasis, and have not been able to work outside the home for many years. We are planning to move away from our dairy farm business – both in terms of the actual physical running of it (we have a contractor providing the labour and machinery now) and also spending more of the year in Spain. Therefore, we are looking at other ways of providing income for our later years (we are far too young to retire!). My passion for crafting and design, combined with other interests, is leading me to develop this ‘lifestyle blog’.

I am an affiliate – for several companies that I have been learning/shopping with for years – with others coming soon.

I am concentrating mainly on developing Passive Income, as that fits best with my chronic health conditions.

However, I have started offering Tarot and Rune Readings professionally again. Email me at hello@aliwade.com if you need some guidance (for you and/or your pet).

I have a long To Do List for developing this website, so please bear with me. The design and content will be changing a lot in the next few weeks.
