WOYWW #310

I know we all keep asking the same question, but where exactly do all these weeks go? They are positively flying past- someone posted on Facebook last week that its only 33 weeks to Christmas- how's that for a depressing thought? Anyway, here we are, all meeting up at Julia's place, The Stamping Ground, for more web  snooping surfing, so show us what you got!
 And here is my pic this week, my ATC's. OK, so its the backs, but did you really think you were going to see them yet?
Finally managed to get them finished, which considering the crops this weekend, was not a moment too soon.
 Also had to do a birthday card, as my sons fiancĂ©e (almost put girlfriend, but they got engaged a while ago) has her birthday on Friday. Will post after its been given out.
 I'll bring my dies again on Saturday, so bring your card and paper.
 I have updated my page with the results from the surgeon last week- it's a bit involved, so won't repeat it all here, but we are waiting to get some things clarified. And I have to have another MRI scan tomorrow, to help clear something up. Honestly, I swear I'll glow in the dark soon! So for once, its short and sweet. Looking forward to Saturday, will see all of you who are going then.

What a tease. but you showed more on yours than I did on mine. I know I've been out of the loop on your illness, but I hope things turn around for you very soon.

Have fun at the crop. I'll be there in spirit. Happy last Wed before the crop from #9.

Neet said...

Dashing, but just saw you had linked. That's a lot of atc's! Enjoy swapping them on Saturday but don't forget to save me one please.
Hugs, Neet 19 xx

Wow you have been busy. Seems these weeks just fly by. I wish you well on your tests. I'm not a good doctoring person and soon have do arrange the yearly exam. Age takes it's tole on the old body for me. And I've delayed it 2 months already. But if it ain't broke don't fix it! !! Have fun at the crop, I would love to attend some year. Like when I win the lottery. Happy WOYWW too Got a good start on my ATC's with our weather being cold and rainy again.

Have fun at the crop - Annie and I have sent our parcel of ATCs to Julia for the crop. I hope we can swap that way! x Jo

Awwwwww such a tease but such fun lol
Can't wait to see them :) #31

Anonymous said...

I've shown a bit of mine but not the full monty, so to speak. And now I will have to make sure to bring some spare card. Your die collection might not be a patch on your ink pad collection, but I'm sure it is worth exploring.

See you soon!

Happy pre-crop WOYWW!

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Shaz, good on you to have the ATCs completed, I've been away so I'm behind. Glad to read you're doing ok and that you're able to get away for a break before any more surgery. Have a wonderful time at the crop Cheers RobynO#15

jan spencer said...

I'm so envious I can't join the crop, you sure have made quite a few ATC's, I totally forgot about the back!

Kristiina Majuri said...

Looking forward to seeing you and the fronts of those ATCs on Saturday. Take care Zo xx 51

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Ooooooh, you tease!! lol :-) The whole Appleton family are looking forward to seeing you both on Friday. Regarding food generally over the weekend, is there anything you have to avoid? It'll be good to give you a big squishy in real life as opposed to through t'Interwebs.....
Hugs, LLJ and Da Boyz xxxx

Hi Shaz,

It's been a while since I've visited so I want to see what you've been up to. So glad you are making time to craft -- I've been knitting in the evenings but that's about it. Need to be better about posting, no matter what life brings.

Hope you are doing well. I think of you and Shoshi often.


Shel C said...

Have fun at the crop :) I wish I could attend but that would be a long and expensive flight! Thanks for sharing :) Shel @ PaperOcotilloStudio

Nannie4 said...

You have been busy! Sorry -- I left a comment on your cancer page, and forgot to comment on your blog. I'm thinking that those ATC cards on your desk are amazing! Hope you'll share photos after the crop. :)
Thanks for your visit. Good luck tomorrow.
Hugs. Nann4 # 45

Debbie Rock said...

Oh you tease! I shall be very happy ... nay, delighted! ... to get even the back of one of your ATC's!
Thanks for popping by my blog earlier - am not at all organised I'm afraid and am quite sure I have forgotten something. Too late now so am just going to wing it! Looking forward to seeing you again Shaz! Love Debbie xXx

pearshapedcrafting said...

Ooh! Still got to fill in the backs! Must say I am getting a teensy bit excited now! Hope all goes well tomorrow! Thanks for the info about Winchester, I see that our B and B is quite near to Highclere castle so somewhere for Sunday too! Look forward to seeing you, Chrisx

Hettie said...

That border is a punch and I can take it Saturday if you want to play?
Wishing you well for tomorrow. Fingers crossed.
See you Saturday.

StampinCarol said...

You're such a tease, but then I did the same with my trade cards for an upcoming convention! LOL! Happy WOYWW!

Monica said...

That glow will help you work on sleepless nights. With doctors I feel you visit them with toe nail fungus and come out with a huge bill and a list of new diseases and symptoms.

Angela Radford said...

So wish I could be with you all on Saturday but know you will have a great time. Wishing you a happy crafty woyww, Angela x 34

glitterandglue said...

Hello Shaz. I do hope the MRI has gone well today - and assure you we are still praying for you both at this time. You and John make a good, glow-in-the-dark pair... he has had so many xrays, and suchlike recently, that he too is feeling somewhat "glowy"!!!
Hope the crop and the ATC swap goes really well - looks like you have made LOADS!
Thanks for your visit and your kind words. Although I shan't be able to post blogs for the next few weeks, I shall keep up with where you are at with your treatment. Take care, dear friend.
God bless.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Shaz, hope that whatever the MRI scan shows up is good news. Have fun at the workshop and a great weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth x #49

Eliza said...

Hi Shaz,

Firstly sorry I am getting to visit so late just saw some shots of the crop and wow what a time you all had. Did you create enough ATC's I sent some over but I don't think enough were sent, looking at how many you have done. Great job. Now interested in seeing the other side of them.

Belated WOYWW
Hugs Eliza & Yoda 67

Ohhh Snap said...

THAT is a lot of cards! I think I've made 3 ATC cards in my whole life lol. (4th in the making). I can't believe Christmas is only 33 weeks away lol. Dang it goes by quickly. #58

Ohhh Snap said...

I nearly had an "open" MRI, but they didn't tell me about the basket over my head or other things.... It's a lot noisier than the closed models they say. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you the next one is successful in all possible ways : ).
