WOYWW 29th January

Here is my 5th WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk



Below are the blanks for Toppers.


These are the finished Toppers.  The themes were Yellow and Spring.

Hope you all have had a good week.

Another visit to the vet has confirmed that Polly has Arthritis in her front shoulders/elbows.  The left isn't causing her much trouble, but the right was making her limp.  She's now on double the dose of Rimidyl.  I am also using my sonic device (I use it for my pains) on her shoulders and guess what....she's not limping:)  Hoping that when the Rimidyl ends she doesn't start limping again. 



She's missing her zoomies (vet said not to let her off lead outside), so she's been trying to do them in my small flat:)  She's wound up like a spring.

Anyway, Polly has accepted the restrictions and just has more naps:)


She's still happy and loves to roach.


I have some homeopathic treatments coming in the post.  I used the same Homeopath for the corn remedy last year and that worked a treat.  If you have any problems with your dog, or yourself for that matter, check out Lori Rose web site http://www.lorirosehomeopathy.com/

Should you purchase from Lori, please give her the code ST007, as then my friend get's some commission which she passes onto a Greyhound charity.


Well I hope you have a lovely weekend.

Don't forget to hug your dog/s.

A change from card making, as I have been making memory wire beaded bracelets.

WOYWW 15th January, 2014

Here is my 3rd WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/


This is a photo from a previous WOYWW showing the various bits to get projects started.


This shows the bits for a Get Well card for a friend.


This is the finished card.



Hope you all have a good week.

I hope you are all having a good week.

Polly's limp seems to be improving with the anti-inflammatory painkillers.  She's not happy as she's not allowed to do zoomies in my dad's garden.  I don't want her annoying whatever the problem is.  I need to give the tablets a goo chance to cure the problem.



As you can see both Polly and Albe are more than happy to just chill.

I would like to ask a favour of my blogging friends.  My friends' 3 year old German Shepherd slipped a disc and had to be operated on.  She's come through the op, but there is a long recovery ahead for her.  Please send her positive healing thoughts.


Don't forget to hug your hound/s.

Hope you are all having a fab Friday and looking forward to the weekend.


I had to take Polly to the vets yesterday.  She's had a limp which comes and goes.  Anyway, whilst the vet said she could see she is limping, she couldn't find anything wrong.  She suspects either an old racing injury flaring up in the cold and damp or the start of Arthritis.  Polly is now on Rimidyl (anti-inflammatory painkiller) and some high strength Glucosamine tabs.  If she doesn't improve in two weeks, we'll probably have to do x-rays.




I have put some recent crafting on my PurplePolly Crafting page.  

Well you all take care and don't forget to hug your hound/s.

Here is my 2nd WOYWW (What's On Your Workbench Wednesday).  If you want to know more about this weekly event, take a look at Julia's blog http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/


Right on my desk I have three cards ready to put together and some blank shaped card for Toppers.



This is the finished card, which is for a swap on an Ebay group called Crafting For All.


Hope you are all having a good week, whatever the weather.

This year I have signed up for WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday).  If you'd like to take part take a look at Julia's blog Stamping Ground/WOYWW


My desk is all tidy ready for the New Year.  My craft area is in my living room, so I try and keep it fairly tidy anyway.


In this box are all the crafting magazine's I have bought, but not done anything with.  Plenty to keep me out of mischief for a few months:)



NB...I do have a separate page for my crafting (PurplePoppy Crafting), but this WOYWW will be placed on my main page.
