WOYWW 641 – still dithering, but in a different way


Happy WOYWW to all. What a mess I was in last night! The re-cap of my play will be here tomorrow because I am not quite done with what I am making for some experimental Distress Oxide bits. But my desk at then end of yesterday was in a state.

You can see the bits from the final contest coins I showed yesterday still hanging about. I had a quick whirl of cleaning (even hoovered the floor!) and …

The little magazine journal is made from an old issue of Vamp Stamp News (an old stamping mag from, gosh, the 80s I think) and it may get used at some point, not sure for what. It was the making that interested me not what I might do with it. A couple of other coin options for the contest that are, for the moment, unfinished. Up at the top you see my folder of dither. I had begun a set of ATCs on the topic of Dystopian quotes, all from 1984 (a great book that I love, love, love) and as I was making them I was feeling a little sense of unease.

I was feeling like the casual observer might take it to mean I was anti-vaxx, anti-mask mandates, anti-government, whatever. I am not. I am very much PRO vaxx, PRO mask mandates, and while I am not ANTI-government, I am not blind to its failings. Hence the putting in a folder of these. If I make one, I suspect I might opt for the two quotes at the top:

  • War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.
  • Stupidity was as necessary as intelligence and as difficult to attain.

but for now, they will stay tucked away. Just the If you HAD to.. cards left, I think, then off to knitting with my mate.

Hummm. Tricky. Voldemort is pretty horrible and has no sense of loyalty, so I’m thinking I get to be a billionaire then spend my money just to pay my family all of it. Then *I* don’t have to spend anything anymore! Of course, that depends on my family having that loyalty I mentioned…. LOL!

Happy WOYWWeeeee!

  1. Everyone has to have a messy desk at some time or they are not doing it right Lol! I hope your week is full of crafty fun and happy woyww, Angela x5x

  2. I had something to say, but I think you’ve just scared it out of my head! The ATC’s are fab, but frightening in a weird way…oh yes, I had a quote in my head from somewhere… Don’t step on the line…but if you do….watch out for pegs… Desk always looks like its waiting to be attacked from the rear by a heat gun! Keep crafting. Happy WOYWW! Stay Safe, ((Lyn)) #22

  3. Well I LOVE your 1984 ATCs, it’s a great book, one of my favourites. As for the if or, I think I would be a billionaire and carry a bucket around with me, don’t really want to hang out with Voldy. Happy WOYWW! Elle #11 this week

  4. George Orwell certainly had a way with a turn of a phrase didn’t he? And boy have some of his ideas come true. I am also a passionate Pro-vaxxer and cannot understand why anyone thinks it’s a bad thing. Anyway, I like what you’ve done with the the ATCs, clever gal – you have a way with images and words for sure.

  5. Hi Mary-Anne. It’s always interesting to see what you’re up to. Great design for your 2984 themed cards!
    I liked 1984, too, and I fear it has come to pass, though even Orwell didn’t imagine people paying voluntarily to put Big Brother in their homes!
    Take care and happy WOYWW

  6. 1984 was a creepy film to be sure. I wonder how far we have come along that road. Great ATC’s and happy WOYWW. Angela #2

  7. WHat a difference two photos make Mary Anne. Love the ATCs. I like 1984 too but prefer Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. I have just got rid of a load of stamping magazines. Stay safe and happy WOYWW. Sarah #8

  8. I am so glad you took a pic of the messy desk! Even if you tidied after…. the quotes will come in handy I am sure. Have a happy WOYWW Helen #7
