It’s been a long Time. So many Month but I had a lot of thinking and various other things to do and the result of all this pondering and wondering? Well, for starters, I am closing this Blog and moving back to Blogger. My new Blog is called Silvi’s Place and http://silvisherriff.blogspot.co.uk/ is the URL. I will also be closing my Webshop as well as my FB Page. I just really want a fresh start for myself.
I really appreciate all the comments and visits everyone has made for me here on this Blog. And once I get sorted with the new Blog I shall certainly add my most favorite Blog links.
But for now it is good bye
What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday has come round again. Time sure flies when your having fun. Anyone still wondering what WOYWW is all about? Visit Julia at Stamping ground, our hostess with the mostesst:) There you can see many more Desks from all over the World.
I haven’t made any for a little while. I am still in love with my Texture Boutique and ever so slightly obsessed with Time and old fashioned Pocket watch images, I thought I combine the lot!
Background: Embossed and colored with soft pastels

We are now well into 2013 and Christmas is a distant memory. I am thinking I best kick start the New Year on a high note. I have been meaning to organize my Rubber Stamps for a while but wasn’t sure how. I only have a few wood mounted stamps and the rest are all unmounted. The mounted stamps are no problem but what about the others? Most of the stamps come as freebees from Magazines. I will only by Card/paper craft magazines if there are free stamps I like. The stamps are not exactly brilliant but hey they are free-ish!
A few days ago my lovely Blog Neighbor Lynn, of Garden pinks posted about how she keeps her Stamps, what a fab Idea. Must do that….but, but, but I don’t have a Laminating Machine, Oh woe me ;( I have Laminating pouches (don’t ask) but no actual Laminator! So I left it and pondered for a few days. And than one morning at around 3 am I asked myself….what is it that a Laminating machine actually does. It heats!!! Eureka!!! SOOOOO, Pouches + Iron ? Yeah you just know where this is going….Straight to Pinterest and hey presto confirmation.
I would not recommend this method for your important documents and for anything that may be seen by other people but for my purposes it was perfect. All I wanted to do was to fuse the pouches together, no problem with that. So now I have my unmounted Stamps all nice and neat in a folder. And I will go and buy a Laminating Machine soon!!!
Happy New Year. First Wednesday of the new year. Today I am certain it is Wednesday because yesterday, when I thought it was, it was actually Tuesday!!!! That is why this photo was taken yesterday, TUESDAY, because I thought it was WEDNESDAY. But today is the real WEDNESDAY!!! Confuse much??? Yeah!!
In my last post of the Year 2012 I mentioned that I would craft my way into the New Year and that is what I did….
On my Desk is the altered Folder, which I am going to use as my Memories of 2013 Folder. It is not quiet finished because I didn’t take the Glue drying time into consideration. I am hoping to have it done this week, at the least the outside of it.
So there you have what is on my work Desk to begin the New year with:)
Now hop over to Julia’s tosnoop and some more interesting Desks
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,000 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.
For 2012 anyways!!! What are you planning? Have you made any New Years resolutions? I try not to make any, as it usually sets me up for failure. Instead I think of a few things that I wold ‘like’ to do in the coming year, that way if I don’t get them done…no biggy I move them along to the following year!!! One think I am definitely going to do is create:) I am starting that tonight. We don’t really bother with New Years eve very much, it’s just another day of sorts. Of course I would like to mark the turn of the year in some way.
A few weeks ago I came across this Blog http://ja-sagerin.blogspot.co.uk/ and she creates these Memory Folders. They are exactly what it say. Folders for your memories. Now I thought I like to have a go at one of them for 2013. I have all the bit’s I want , including an old Folder, and so I am going to mark the turn of the Year with creating a Memory folder ready to fill throughout the Year 2013. What I love about this project is the fact that I don’t have to create anything if I don’t want to. If my Mojo does a runner I can just drop a photo into one of the plastic sleeves or a Cinema ticket or something. I can do as much or as little per month…as long as I do something. I am sure I will also include some sort of journal style pages I am already liking the thought of it. So my new years celebration will be spend gluing and sticking an painting.
I also marked the end of the Year with one final project. A card for my Brother. Men are so difficult to make cards for but thankfully we now have Steampunk everything. while my card isn’t proper Steampunk style it certainly is a manly style.
I also made the envelope from some Map paper. I DO hope he will like it.
I wish you all a very happy and creative New Year
