Bubbly Funk forum January swaps received

Here are the inchies I received from the January 'fauna and flora' swap on BF forum:

And these are the twinchies for the 'A' swap for January:

I'm afraid the photos don't really do these justice - the light is so poor today. It amazes me how much detail can be included on such a small area, particularly inchies.

Thanks to all the bubbly girls.


Wednesday has come round once again as quickly as ever! So it's that time in the week when lots of crafters show off their workspace courtesy of Julia on WOYWW. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then hop on over there and have a nosey at everyone's workspace and, hopefully, join in the fun.

I admit that my workspace was in a right muddle earlier on (I know, I should have taken a picture to convince everyone who thinks I'm tidy all the time!). Anyway, I've cleared all the immediate stuff and got out what I need to re-ink some of my copics. I actually bought  the re-inkers a while ago and haven't yet got round to refilling those that need it - silly really because I could do with using some of those colours. And you'll see a few pens on the left of the picture that need to have refills ordered before I can use them - good job I've got other copics as well as promarkers and marvy alcohol pens.

I started the day yesterday determined to carry on with my tidying/sorting of my craft stuff ... I got as far as finding some pieces I'd saved to recycle on Christmas cards and ended up making 12 more Christmas cards instead of tidying/sorting (which is boring anyway).

So today's next task must be re-inking these copics ... and then perhaps I'll get on with the tidying/sorting ... perhaps!!

Update: Job done, here is the evidence (didn't actually take as long as I expected):

Not sure that it should have been such a messy job - bit of a learning curve (will do better next time) - I think some pens have ended up with almost too much in them and some not enough - time will tell, but at least I have plenty left in the refills to repeat the process when necessary (cheaper than buying new pens). Thankfully, stazon cleaner got the worst off my hands (why didn't I think of putting gloves on? - I never do till afterwards!).

Suzie's 39: fence

The word for today on Suzie's 365 photos is 'fence'.

This follows on nicely from my photo yesterday for 'damaged' in which I showed our back gate, so this today's photo is just looking beyond the gate to the piece of fencing that could also do with being renewed. Further up the garden is fine, as it was replaced some while ago with a wire fencing.

You'll notice that there is still snow lingering on the grass - brrrrr!!
