WOYWW 375

TIME IS A JET PLANE, IT MOVES TOO FAST....

EDIT: Lea H, if you're reading this, I've tried to comment on your blog a couple of times but it keeps getting returned to me as a 'could not deliver' email. Please could you email me your email addy, so I can at least reply to you because I really like the stuff you do!! Thanks

I am spending more time packing boxes than crafting but a little bit has been done...

 I knocked together some personalised bunting for the new nephew of a friend of mine. The ribbon box needs sorting - guess what? It ain't gonna happen :-D

....and this is why:

Boxes everywhere! You can just see a framed cross stitch, in the days when I had the patience to do them :-D  It's a Noah's Ark sampler I made for Rhys 19 years ago!  We've kept the boxes relatively neat as this is the bedroom in which Shaz and Doug Silverwolf will be using when they stay with us this weekend!!

I turned 55 last week (Gawd Blimey) and one of my presents was wrapped up with this:
Yup, I'm going to age disgracefully! Anyone care to join me??

Have a great week xxxx

  4. You are still a bit of a kid Jan! Belated Wishes from me, although I did manage to get on FB in time.
    My, you have been busy with those boxes, after the kitchen I don't think we will be moving house - that was a step too far for me and only one room. My craft room> Oh Em Gee - impossible!
    Have a lovely weekend with Shaz and Doug - can imagine it will be full of fun and love.
    Hugs Neet 3 xx

  5. Hi Jan, Glad you managed to get the bunting done, despite all the boxes.

    Happy belated birthday. I think once we reach 50 we have earned the right to be disgraceful:) LOL

    Happy WOYWW

  10. A very very happy belated birthday my friend. Hope you had lots of treats. The boxes look so familiar....we still have some needing emptying but now thinking what ever is in them hasn't been missed so just might bin them lol. I like a ribbon box I can rummage through so don't sort it too much lol. Good luck with the box filling....do you have a date and where are you moving to???
    Hugs,

  12. Well aren't you organised - I can feel my stress levels rise at the thought of all that chaos, but you seem to be handling it beautifully and crafting too! I love the bunting and I bet your friend will be thrilled with it. Have a wonderful time with Shaz and her hubby,
    Hugs,

  14. Fab ribbon Jan! So glad you're managing to squeeze in time to craft (and to host friends) while packing up the house. I hope you have a lovely time with Shaz and Doug. Happy crafting, Max #22

  16. Morning Jan - definitely. I'm with you - I wear purple a lot these days!!! (see Jenny Joseph!) Happy birthday for last weekend. You look good and organised - I am sort of assuming you know where you are moving to? Unlike friends of mine who's house sale is going on and they don't yet know... They'll find the right place at just the right time! Have a great time with Shaz and Doug.. enjoy LOADS a fun!
    Thanks for the visit and comments.
    Take care. God bless.

  17. I think we should all age disgracefully. A very Happy Birthday. I'm sure it was a very special day. Looks like you are well into this moving lark. We are just starting out on the long journey with my Mum. We have 40 years of packing up to do there. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Have a super weekend with Shaz.
    Hugs Lisa xx

  18. Love the ribbon, nothing like a bit of WILD. Still got my Union Flag bunting up, first excuse, Queen's Birthday, now it's Olympics. I think it might just stay up forever! When's the big move then? I can't imagine ever moving from our neat little semi. Bit chilly out today (just got back from getting a geocache) think I might have to iron today to warm up! Thanks for the visit BJ#18

  19. I didn't realise your house move was progressing so fast! We could learn from you! We've been looking to move for over 10 years and we're still here - even after buying and selling a house last year, LOL! We're just chickens really and we're afraid to make a change! Looks like you're ready to go any minute! Have fun with Shaz and Doug. Would be lovely to see some photos! Loving the bunting - I can see what it will look like when finished. Apparently, buntings are all the rage these days - you could sell them on Etsy! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa #24 (thanks for visiting earlier!)

  21. Happy belated birthday Jan and yes, I join you in aging but I age 'hippie-like gracefully'... if that's ok with you ;) Have a wonderful time with Shaz & Doug! Happy woyww and a big hug from Holland, Marit #26

  22. Hi Jan, yuk I don't envy you all that packing, I hate moving house, but it's always worth it in the end! Glad you're still making time for a bit for crafternating :o) Have fun celebrating your birthdays at the weekend xxx Annie C #29

  23. I'm with ya sister! Let's age disgracefully together!! And look at your cross-stitch from the day. I used to be obsessed with Noah's Arks. You know, I never thought I'd do another big project, but then this dollhouse thing came along and I'm determined to finish it before I get another age spot. I visited you first today before I even get on the treadmill! I was asking Julia for some advice on painting a stone that came from my mom's house. It used to be part of a fountain in her back yard. I may need to pm you the photo of it and maybe you could show Julia. Lots o hugs from one 55'er to another! Double high fives...that's us. Sandy Leigh #37

  27. Nearly 65 and hope I am ageing disgracefully too!! That packing is going well Jan - it's a flippin pain but you will be so glad once it's all over and you are happily settled in your new place.

  28. Hope you had a great birthday celebration! I'm close on your heels in age! Remember, growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional! I'm not growing up, period. Hope your move goes without problems! Cool bunting! Happy WOYWW!

  29. No Jan! I refuse to age gracefully it's no fun! I'm 62 now and determined to carry on doing all the mad things I've always done so I've joined the gym to keep fit for the skiing and when I'm not doing that I'm walking with friends though it is getting in the way of my crafting a bit. Hope you have a lovely woyww and happy belated birthday, Angela xXx 15

  35. Happy Belated WOYWW. Cute bunting - and a reminder that I wanted to make some for my eldest granddaughter, as we are decorating her room this autumn. Packing! We still have boxes full after 3 years! Love that ribbon - would suit most of us, I am sure. Ali x #34
