Where's the week gone?

I've not blogged all week!

I've been pretty busy though, working on something which I was hoping to show today. However, we're in the middle of one of those computer change-arounds and it's all gone to pot!
I'm going to be having Hubby's pc, mine is going to be a dedicated server-wotsit and Hubby has bought a new(ish) one from someone at work. Lots of new computer bits arrived yesterday so The Big Move Around started last night. The upshot is that the new one isn't working (why is it never a case of plug it in and off you go....well, not in this house anyway) and although my (new) one is working and internet ready, the printer, the robo and the camera uploader or downloader wotsit are not working. Obviously I've wanted, nay NEEDED to use all three today.

So although I have new photos I can't show them, and even though I've made my card for tomorrow's new DCM launch whether I'll get it on the blog is another thing entirely.

Apart from all that, I've not been feeling great today. I've not been sleeping great, so I'm tired and my energy levels are really low. Poor Me.....

And the study floor is covered with boxes and bits of computer and wire and more computer bits, it's like an obstacle course in here. Usually the only mess in here is mine! aaaaaaagggggggghhhhhhhhhh

Something I forgot to mention on here (how could I possibly have done that?) is that I'm now going to be a regular Design Team member for Ribbon Oasis - I'm really excited as Bea's ribbons are just gorgeous. For the summer, instead of the usual monthly kits there are some fabby ribbon mini mixes available to play with and I have two of them right here on my desk - are you jealous yet? They are just lovely and such good value too - especially as they are on special offer atm.....
Check all the delicious ribbony goodies out here

So, I've had a look through the old photos and found something I hadn't put on here yet; it's a notebook decorated for the Black and White themed swap on Bubbly Funk. We had a summer themed swap a few weeks ago - they were big A5 sized books, so this time we've been making smaller handbag sized ones - so if you ever see anyone jotting down noted is a seriously stylish Black and White notebook well, it may well be a BF B&W Notebook Swapper!

I can't remember where I got these gorgeous Imaginisce papers from and I really should try to find out because I think I need some more, they are lovely and thick, double sided and there were quite a few different designs too.
The chipboard flower is covered with one of those DCWV glittery papers, sanded and then edged with some silver Stickles. The black button has more of the glittery stuff on it.

Lots of ribbons of course, ooooh there are just sooooo many yummy B&W ribbons to be bought.
I wonder if I'll ever get tired of B&W - ooooh perish the thought!

Good news:
Hubby has sorted the wire for downloading photos, so I can now sort the new photos out. No printer or robo yet though...

Well done, Kathy, on the DT for Ribbon Oasis. Hope the computer stuff gets sorted soon.

Kathy that notebook is scrummy. And being the proud owner of one of your notebooks I am sure it is even nicer in the flesh. I've been searching through my stash for some lovely black and white paper tonight - and realised I don't have any! So if you remember where you got this lot...

Fabby book Kathy, Ilove all the black and whaite and especially love all the patterned ribbons.

Well done on the DT gig for Ribbon Oasis!

I feel for you on the lack of sleep, no energy front. It wrecks you mind & even though you get all these fantabulous ideas for crafting, the body won't carry them out!!!

Love the ribbons, glad you got the DT work.
