Cardarian). Due to all sorts of hassles, poor Dolores has been snowed under with stuff, but has just sent me an ATC for this years swap. There was a lovely card, and the most stunningly coloured butterfly on the envelope too. I do love Dolores' use of gorgeously bold, jewel-like colours.A big thank you, Dolores, especially for taking the time when you are so busy.
Second thing on my desk, a couple of Tim Holtz books of words, for when I get into this art journalling thing.
A quick heads up, for anyone who has the Bird Crazy stamps from Tim Holtz. Apparently he has teamed up with Sizzix to produce a Framelits die set, however, from what I have read, it is not going to be released over here. The only way at the moment to get them, is from a supplier who has managed to get their hands on some. Currently, as far as I know, that is Jennie at The Artistic Stamper, and Susan at Countryview crafts. Both ladies are taking pre-orders, and expect the dies at the end of August.
Ok, thats my enabling done for this week, lol.
I'm still waiting to hear from the hospital, wish they'd get a move on, it's making my nerves ragged, just waiting. Every time I hear mail being delivered, I have a bit of stress. If it's there, then the waiting's over, but then again, the panicking will start. Oh well.
Finally, I want to join in with all the WOYWWers in saying how shocked and saddened I was to see Julia's post late last week, about the sudden death of Eliza. I know she was much loved by all of us who had contact with her, and of course her beloved Yoda. There really are not the right words to say to anyone, but all I can do is send my deepest condolences, and loving thoughts to her family, friends and colleagues.Especially to her Father, who has now lost a son and daughter within a few weeks. Like most of us, I knew her through WOYWW, and have many, many lovely comments on my blog from her. She was always so supportive of everyone's artform, and indeed of the issues they were writing about in their everyday lives. I know we will all miss her, and Yoda, deeply. I'm sure she loved the fact that we visited to see Yoda almost as much as to chat with her. RIP Eliza.xxxxx
Quick Edit: Finally had a letter today, I have to see the QE Surgeon on the 30th July. Have a nasty feeling now that I will be in hospital for our birthdays- that's on the 14th August, and as it's a 10-14 day stay, if I go in before it's certain I will still be in there. All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed it takes a bit longer, and I don't go in till after, lol.
