No craftyness to share but wow what a week!!

Wow last week was a busy old time - Lots of work work work, Stamping club then work, Teaching at Craft Range then work so no craftyness to share I'm afraid so thought I would share this. 

Danielle Brown Danielle Brown of Great Britain receives her Gold medal after winning the Women's Individual Compound - Open class competition on day 6 of the London 2012 Paralympic Games at The Royal Artillery Barracks on September 4, 2012 in London, England.

This young lady won gold medal last week for archery.  Danielle used to be a frequent visitor to our house as she went to school with my eldest son Tom.  We were thrilled to hear she had done so well at The Paraolympics and very excited when this happened

Yes Skipton got its very own Gold postbox.  Here it is undergoing the transformation last Thursday.
Mum also went and bought some of the commemorative stamps - perfect for sending our Tom his birthday card next week!!!

This week is going to be much the same as last week as my days off have been saved up so I can attend the Woodware days next weekend Sunday and Monday. Really looking forward to this and its very local just a few miles away in Grassington so very little travelling.  After seeing the new Christmas Woodware stamp range it will be exciting to see them being used and to have a play.

Hope you have had an exciting week xx
Thanks for stopping by x


  1. You have been a busy bee Janet. Well done your friend Danielle and the post box looks lovely and splendid in gold. xx

  2. A very busy week.

    How wonderful to actually know folk who took part in London 2012.

    We work with Christine Ohuruoghu's mum and we all felt for her when she didn't quite manage to retain her Olympic title.

    Have a good week.

    Toni xx

  3. Great photos! Got to be some scrapping there! I wish I could go to the Grassington day... struggling to get there at the minute. If I can't get there, have a great day! jenx

  4. Fantastic photos, Janet! David Whitehead lives just a few miles away from us so there is a gold postbox in Lowdham too. I have enjoyed the Paralympics so much. What will I do with myself now they have finished? Oh yes, I could craft!!!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by and look at my bits and pieces. If you leave a comment I can pop over to yours and have a peep at your work too.
