Back With A….Pop! ….

Posted on July 23, 2014

…..and WOYWW 268. Morning all. Well the heat is on…and not just because the sun is out and bleaching down on everything at Douglass Towers.  No, the heat is on because we are still in the throes (??) of broadband problems, and really have limited access to anything internetty.  Actually, that is wrong…We have all the access that we need, it’s just that everything is so slow to get to that is causing the trouble.  Wor techy mate, James, from Crafter’s Companion managed to sort out the problem with the samples photographs, so I have great pleasure in announcing that the gallery featurimng the new folders and stamps is now alive…

The Curse Returns…

Posted on July 21, 2014

OK PEEPS…THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO GO OUT LAST WEEK BUT DUE TO OUR CONTINUING BROADBAND PROBS WE CAN’T UPLOAD ANY PICS, AND I AM TRYING TO KEEP THE POST TO A MINIMUM FOR THE TIME BEING R Whenever all. Oh yes….Just when I was beginning to think that the curse of the internet was all but fixed…….Up it rears it’s ugly head again and off it goes again.  I have to admit that both The Boss and myself have been internetting like mad this last couple of days, so that just might be the problem….Too much netting!!!  It is becoming a real pain now, as we can’t do anything if we are uploading, but to have anything to upload, you have to…

Onward Ever Onward….

Posted on July 15, 2014

Morning Peeps… …At least it was when I started this bit of literary delight.  The weekend came and went, with The Boss being on fine form for her two Friday shows.  A big Thanks to Jackie and Martyn for their usual well oiled presentations, and another to our fantastic Inkoids.  Not a bad weekend here at Douglass Towers, with another bit of tidying.  TIDYING??….More like an archeological excavation.  I honestly don’t know how everything that came out of Pod One ( The name I gave my five sheds and named after Thunderbird Two’s equipment Pods )  I should have taken a photo, but I think that I was in so much shock that it just…

Anyone For Tea and WOYWW 266…NOT!

Posted on July 10, 2014

Morning all. OK, so i’m getting a little angry now.  A mild green palor is appearing over my whole body.  My shirt is beginning to get tight, though that might just have something to do with me new hobby of baking foccacia bread……and my carefully tailored summer shorts are beginning to stretch.  Yes peeps, the ugly head of the fabled server has reared once more.  I tried to upload a vid, getting ready for friday, but to no avail, as during the upload, I thought that I could maybe answer the odd mail so save time.  No way Jose….The whole lot just froze……Vid and mail.  This has just started to happen over the last coupole of…

Toosday Already????

Posted on July 8, 2014

A’noon all! Well no catastrophes with t’net today, so how about we start this week’s journey by taking another look at the ‘Touch of India’ sets, which are to be featured this coming friday on Sheena’s two C&C shows.  There will be mega deals galore, all based around these fantastic stamp and folder sets.  You’ve seen them before, during the launch shows, but as I may have mentioned before, these sets invoke and encourage such colourful visions and inspire beautiful home artwork, as well as mega cards and projects.  At least they do for moi.  I just love the colours, the buildings, the musical imstruments….and the gear that they…

Sunday Sneaky Peeks..

Posted on July 6, 2014

Yes Folks. i’m back. …Not without a bit of swearing and cursing………and that was the PC shouting back at me!  It is taking an absolute age for anything to be read or loaded on t’net at the moment.  I dread to my very core the though of having to post or upload.  I’ve even started to talk to myself…. “Goph?”, I said….”What am I doing wrong?” ” Nothing that I can see, you are perfect in every way possible” came the reply.  I am nothing but honest with myself. Anyway, The Boss is almost packed and ready to hit the road sometine this afternoon, for her two hour marathon Craft Clinic gig from 11am tomorrow.  Now heading…

I’m Going Slightly Mad!!!

Posted on July 5, 2014

Morning/Afternoon/Evening or whenever I get this bleed-n thing working. Reet!  As you will probably be aware, I didn’t get anything posted yesterday.  Guess why!  Thats right, readers…..our broadband.  Its getting gradually worse over the last week, and as of last night, I was struggling to get anything uploaded or downloaded without it taking ages.  Anyway, the gods of the internet have shone down on me this morning, and we appear to be up and running….At least for now, so how about I stop rabbiting on and get some Sneakies done?  Now most of the Inkoid samples arrived yesterday, so I have been flashing away…..Steady,…

Easy Does It.

Posted on July 3, 2014

Morning all. Well I was up at the crack of 6.45 this morning in an effort to catch out our broadband, and hopefully get the beginning of this weeks Sneaky Peeks up and running…….And it worked!!  Yes, the kettle was still in boiling mode when I got meself connected, so as I type, I have yet to experience my first cuppa of the day.  As promised, I have times, pics and  the odd sample headers for you.  The Inkoid samples should start to arrive from today, so as soon as I can get me brownie out, a gallery will be forthcoming.  Show times are.. MONDAY 7th July….11am – 1pm I will endevour to get fridays ( The 11th ) times for…

What A Struggle but here’s WOYWW 265

Posted on July 2, 2014

Howdy all. Well here I am, but here I very nearly wasn’t….and as things go at the moment, here I might not be again for a bit.  Yes the good old internet rears it’s ugly head once more, this time causing major non- activity in the browsing, posting line.  It all began last thursday, when I uploaded the Friday Flix vid up to Youtube.  Well on friday morning, as I was getting ready to launch the vid and plow headfirst into the weekend, I noticed that the vid was completely cut up.  No!…not upset and crying it’s little cyber eyes out.  What I mean is that it was frozen in places, then pixalated and who knows what else?  Then, when…

WOYWW 264 And My New Toy….Thanks Sheldon!

Posted on June 25, 2014

Afternoon all oot there. Yes it’s wednesday once again, and I know how many times I keep saying it, but……where is the time going?  Now what worries me is that we are now closer to next Chr-stm-s than the last, and that has been punctuated and highlighted in mega numbers, last week, as The Boss finalised her yearly foray into the Festive season, with a new collection which will be coming to a C&C near you very soon.  Before that, though, she is up and on the road for shows on the 7th, which I think will include a Craft Clinic gig.  All that is in a couple of weeks time, so what will be going on in the meantime, eh?? Well as…
