I am a bit late posting this week but as there is nothing on my desk, it shouldn't take long to do! At the weekend my wonderful wide-format printer gave up the ghost! We replaced the print head as recommended and it made no difference so my lovely hubby ordered me a new one. He ordered it online on Monday and it arrived the next day! That is pretty impressive, even more so here in Spain. So yesterday was spent rearranging the computer area of my craft room. It now looks like this.
The printer is another wide-format one but without the scanner and copier as I can link to Chris' A4 one for that. I have tucked it away in the corner to try to keep the cat hairs off it! I also did have my two monitors stacked vertically, but my vari-focal glasses made reading the top one difficult so I now have them side by side again, which is much easier.
silhouette cameo, the glitter-glue tower, and a box that holds any container of liquid that is too tall to stand in one of my drawers. I'll have to pull the cameo forward when I want to use it, but like this, it gives me a bit more space and light for my working area.
Princess Arwen has lost her throne on top of the big printer. She was a bit perplexed last night, but this afternoon she is quite content on top of a set of storage drawers, next to the sunny window.
You may have noticed a bowl of something pink in front of the printer in the first photo. It is delicious water melon. This morning a friend at my craft group gave me a gift!
The stripey ones are Sandias - water melons without all the black pips! They just have a few small soft white ones which you can eat. Now with the best will in the world I cannot eat seven water melons in the week or so that these will be at their best, so most of them will go to the food bank at church on Sunday. But I had to crack one open straight away. Later on I will cut all of it up and store it in the fridge. It is even better when it has been chilled. I looked it up on the net and by volume, it has less sugar and calories than an apple, so as a diabetic it is a fairly 'safe' fruit for me to eat - in moderation of course!
A few folk have asked me about a card I had started making in my
Wednesday post a month or so ago. I did a post about it this week and I thought it had disappeared. I have just discovered that I accidentally posted it on my 'other' blog! Doh! I probably did it late at night when I would have been better off in bed. Either that or I had a touch of sunstroke. Anyway, this is the finished card and if you want to know any more about it, you will find it here.
Now I am off to quickly link this to Julia's Stamping Ground, and see what my crafting friends have been up to this week.
