WOYWW #430

Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by our lovely Julia over at The Stamping Ground, as always. Mine? Not a lot, to be honest. Just the stuff I've been working on over the weekend.
 Another bunch of Stencil Paste & Hot Foil pieces, all of which are in the post below this. Tim Holtz layering stencils this time.

I did some sheets of foil on some scrap card, so I could try die cutting it for sentiments, and that worked fine too.

So now I have to turn a load of these pieces into cards, which will happen over the next few days..
 But for now, I think I've foiled pretty much everything I can, maybe do some more when I've used up all these.

Not much more going on,  Thursday I have my first Radiotherapy treatment, and if the plan he spoke about goes as planned, it'll be three more next week, then one on the Monday after, and all done.
 After that, I have the Tim Holtz Workshop to look forward to, followed the week after by our Crop meet in Llandudno.

And finally...................

Hope the radiotherapy goes ok and to plan. you have certainly caught the foiling bug, you have a lot of pieces to work with!! Take care, Helen #?

Annie said...

I had pictures in my mind of Doug covered in foil while reading your post Shaz 😂😂😂😂 I really hope your treatment goes well and am really looking forward to meeting you at the crop....I feel like I've known you for years.

Sarah Brennan said...

Hi Shaz, hope all goes well with the radiotherapy. With any luck I'll be able to make it to the crop but my friend isn't sure yet so I'm leaving it closer to the time to confirm. I think the motto in your house should be 'If it doesn't move, it needs foil!' Don't forget to bring all the stuff you did with Sir Tim of Holtz to Llandudno, I can't wait to see the tags! Happy WOYWW Sarah #13

Christine said...

I can soooo agree with the minion!

Hope all your sessions go ok. Hope that there are no delays and you are straight in to your treatments without having to hang around too much .... that's the debilitating bit.
Take care

Morning Shaz. Oh how I say Amen to the last paragraph!!! My forgeterer works perfectly too! I do trust your radiotherapy goes well. I wish you all the best.
You have been exceedingly busy hot foiling everything in sight that sat still, by the look of things - Hope Doug kept on the move!!!
Take care - see you soon. God bless.

Die-cutting foil is a great idea, and it looks beautiful too!
Wishing you best of luck with the radiotherapy treatment, let's hope it's the last treatment and you'll be all clear by the end of it. At least something super wonderful to look forward to, the TH workshop sounds marvelous!
Have a wonderful week! Happy WOYWW xoxo Cheetarah #20

Pretty looking foil letters! That must take a deft hand with a light touch. I've yet to try it myself.
Blessings on the radiotherapy, Shaz.
Happy WOYWW!

Hi Shaz, I think I'm with the Minion! I too am a bit concerned for your hubby's safety with all this foiling you are doing ...
I hope all goes well with the radiotherapy treatment(s). Sending you a big hug, Heather #25

I hope your radiotherapy goes really well, Shaz. Love all the foiling and how great to have Tim Holtz and The Crop to look forward too.
Thanks for visiting me already.

Twiglet said...

Best of luck with your radiotherapy Shaz. I just chuckled at Annie's comment about the foil - Imagined Doug as your knight in shining armour - which of course he is!! xx

Marit said...

I always wondered how that 'foil' would work/looks like... but I have too many stuff in the atelier already so I stay away from it and admire your pictures instead :) Good luck with the radiotherapy dear! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day, love from Holland, Marit #26

RosA said...

Hi Shaz
I'm a bit behind. That foil effect is fabulous. I will have to look at your previous posts and see what that is all about :)
Hope the radiotherapy all goes smoothly.

BJ said...

I guess you are all foiled-out now! Like the sentiment die cut with the foil on scraps of card. Hope you appointments go OK, hugs and thanks for the visit BJ#23

Julia Dunnit said...

Still a bit taken aback by quite how great the foiling has been - my word you have done some fantastic r&d...I rather suspect that using up these bakgrunds and words will be no trouble at all!
rooting for you, hope the treatment feels like a doddle. xx

Shoshi said...

Ha! Foiled again... Lol! Really sorry to hear about your shoulder - I've had shoulder problems and know just how painful it can be. Had physio and she gave me some exercises to do. Mine was due to crutch and wheelchair use getting the joint out of balance. So glad you've started your radiotherapy - hope it all goes smoothly and without too many side effects, and most of all, that it will completely deal with the problem and you can move on into full recovery! You've been through more than enough and have had a very rough few years. I've got another CT scan on Friday to check on the progress of my semi-hernia. I wish they'd just deal with it once and for all.

Thank you for your lovely comment - the kittens are rather adorable, aren't they! They are such fun.

Have a good week, and loads of love from us both,
Shoshi #33
