What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday

This is as it was left on Tuesday evening, as you can see, prepearations for Saturday's A Magnetic Year in a Day dominate.
I haven't been back to it yet either, I'm a bit poorly today and so will be doing the old shiver and shake in the comfort of my big ol' bed!
Please leave links and things to your WOYWWs. I still want to be able to rummage through them!

Hmmm I wonder what there are for...?

Just a little tease.

Taking a break from cutting an counting, and made these. They're not finished, but they will be by the time I see you all on Saturday. I made them during a break from the cutting and counting which has taken over my days this weekend.

The Scrapladies are looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday.

Now back to the cutting and counting.

Gosh, me and the other Scrap Lady are cutting counting and bagging like a couple of maniacs. I smugly thought I'd finished typing all the notes; only to stupidly delete six months instructions instead of transferring them. Well if that's the worst that will happen, I'll be happy!
So here's a grainy pic of what I've been cutting and collating stock for today. This one makes me smile.
And more good news.....there's a large Pumpkin in my kitchen, destined to become a large number of Hallowe'en muffins for us intrepid calendar makers. Yum.

If you want to know more about the event that this relates to: have a look at our Big Huge Important through the blog or click the link!

13 days and counting...

Are you getting excited? I hope so, we are, or maybe thats fear, or histeria or something... :-)

Here is another peak and a tiny glimpse at the utter mess that is my desk, as I sit surrounded by paper, bits n pieces and a red hot Cricut, making up your kits.

Another partial view...AMYID

AMYID - a Scrap Lady way of saying A Magnetic Year in a Day. If you've ever visited my blog, you'll know how much I like a completely useless acronym!
Good grief, could it be that the least organised Scrap Lady has managed to finish her week's tasks and remembered that daylight is required to photograph the LOs? Yes Sir. No prizes for guessing the month on this one though, I think it's glaringly obvious.
The 2 Scrap Ladies have been involved in lots of discussions about kits, choices, and stuff. You do realise that it's only two weeks away! Any of you got questions? Please ask.

Well, here's another portion type photo.
I'm sure Ally warned you that I like to use colour. Mostly the pages are straightforward..a couple I've deliberately done so they are easy enough to finish the majority of at home..because what with all the crafting, chatting and eating going on, we don't want anyone experiencing pressure to do all 12 LOs. Each monthly kit will have instructions and a finished photo for you to refer to. So you can take it home - or buy another set because you want the same sort of kit experience to make up the calendar for 2011, or because you know someone who can't live without a magnetic calendar and your fabulous craftwork thereupon. I totally get that.

If you've arrived here from another blog and have no clue as to what this all means - page down (or click this link: )to the Big Huge Announcement relating to A Magnetic Year in a Day. There's still about 10 days in which we could take your booking without having to panic over making up more kits!

Bit more than a sneak peek!

Ssssh dont tell Mrs Dunnit, here is a bit of a bigger peek than you have had till now.

I picked up my frame from her the other day and I was so impressed with it I just wanted to show you all.

Mr Dunnit is woodworker extraordinare, I'm not really sure what I was expecting in the way of the frames but these are just gorgeous, even nicer than I was imagining, they will look fab on the wall. The one I have is Ash, but they will be available in a choice of that and I believe Pine and Oak. Don't forget though, they will need staining or waxing at home afterwards.

To show it off (or not as the case may be) I have put one of my pieces of paper on it, held by one of the decorated magnets you may make on the day. Dont worry, if melons are not your thing, Julias kit is fruit-free (I think!?).

Announcing.....Christmas Card Marathon

Oh yeah. These 2 Scrap Ladies are on fire. Actually we should be on something!

Anyway, we're having a Marathon day on Sunday November 29th 2009, in Tidworth, Hampshire. We set up 25 Christmas cards with supplies and instructions, you come in and make them. We lay on a nice home made lunch, beverages and snacks, and we all gossip about our crafting, our families and blahdy blah. It's a no pressure day - you make as many or as few cards as you can; whilst not a traditional 'here's-a-new-technique-and-here's-how-you-do-it' workshop, we're on hand to help and eat cakes all day, of course.

Over the next month we'll be posting tips and ideas for getting the most out of the Marathon. It would be great if you can join us. The day will cost £38.50 per person and we'd like a deposit on booking - a booking form and other details are available on demand - hit the button on the left - 'Contact Julia'. I'll email you the full details. Remember, until you part with the deposit, you're not under any can find out more without committing to it!

Keep Up, Y'all

Not a sneak peek, so much as a whispered 'heads up'.......
2 Scrap Ladies are going to announce another 'event' fairly soon.
I know, I can't stand it either. The pressure!!
