KIMONO!!!!…..Blo-dy KIMONO???…… ……That is the very last time that I will listen to anyone on the telly, because as of about ten hours ago, we at Douglass Towers have been locked in the Panic Room, previously known as Mission Control, whilst a couple of Giant KOMODO Dragons are pacing outside the door. Ok, Ok…Control and deep breaths…… It all started on tuesday, when I read an article in the paper about how kimonos were very popular as a relaxation garment….being very confortable to wear.  So, to that end, I searched the net and came up with a place that would send me out a couple, which would arrive on thursday…

NANU NANU To The Wonderful Robin Williams And WOYWW 271

Posted on August 13, 2014

Afternoon All. It has seriously taken me all day to think of how to come up with anything to say about Robin Williams.  We were both about to leave early yesterday morning, when we heard the so sad news, and I still can’t believe it.  OK, i’m no longer a kid myself, but he seems to have been around for most of my life….and now yet another one who has gone far too early.  The worst part of it is that he did not suffer at the hands of a serious disease…..or crime.  No, what seems to have taken him away, is a deep deep depression.  How can someone who gave so much happiness and laughter succumb to something which seemd to be the…

Early To Bed…….

Posted on August 11, 2014

Af’noon all oot there in Craftyland. So…..monday it is!!  The day after sunday, which seemed to fly by in a “valium haze”…….Well a haze at least.  What with paint for walls…paint for cards and paint for samples, my whole weekend seems to have been themed on…you guessed it….Paint.  Lots of it! of all colours and hues…….and that was just the walls.  Only kiddin’…..Do you really think that I would be here and able to type if I had painted them the wrong colour??? Me neither!…….I shudder at the thought of the pain. Anyway, as I got at least some of me jobs done, I managed to grab an hour or two to sit and…

Rest???…What Rest???

Posted on August 9, 2014

Af’noon all. Ok, Ok!, so I did say that I would be doing a spot of decorating this weekend.  Little did I realise that it would be mixed with a bit of essential photographery, annnnnd, so equally essential playing with some new products heading your way very soon.  So there I was, sitting with The Monsters, at around seven-ish this morning, when WHAM<!!?>…It hit me.  No not George Michael and the other one.  What I mean is that I needed to hit the shops…and pretty quickly, as there was little or nothing to be had to eat in the place.  This is not really a rare occurance, mind, but as the new diet is beginning to cut deeply,…

All Roads Lead To The Weekend

Posted on August 8, 2014

A’noon to url ma leetel Unny Bunchy Gophettes. Well friday has hit us once again.  You know…it only seems like about seven days since it was here last.  This time next week we will be half way through August and, depressingly, heading headlong towards the autumn.  Why they can’t just add another 30 odd days onto July and August beats me, but there you go.  The sky looks a little dodgy as well, with the hint of a storm creeping ever closer over the hill.  The rumble of thunder that I thought I had heard, was in fact my stomach, as the old diet starts to hit home…and me gut, and it decided to complain in the noisiest of methods. …

The Next Peek

Posted on August 7, 2014

A’noon all. Well that seemed to work!……My call-out  was met with a fantastic response from everyone…..( Nothing short of what I expected from my Gophettes mind you)  Thanks again.  It was just the fact that these dozens of weird and useless comments were coming in every day, and I thought that maybe they were having some kind of effect on the regulars.  Now my doubts have been answered, so one is happy…..yayyyy!  On the superfast broadband front, things may have taken a worse course than we had expected.  Just this week, we noticed that the site had been updated, so in we went to check if we were still down as coming soon. …

WOYWW 270….And The Start Of The Peeks

Posted on August 6, 2014

Morning all! Bit on the wet side this morning, here at Douglass Towers.  Even those pesky Monster Springers refuse to budge from their comfy beds.  It is only half past five mind, so they may have a point.  “You are kidding me???” seems to be the phrase that is telepathically being sent my way by one little black and white in particular.  They may have a point, but as the old internet still struggles to keep up, I thought that i’d better get an early start with this bit of bloggery in the hope that everything loads without too much of a hitch.  As well as that I have the first of the peeks at Sheena’s new stamp sets, from her new…

Another Fantastic Step Back In Time……….

Posted on August 4, 2014

Morning all….. …and I hope that I find everyone well and relaxed after the weekend.  For moi??…….I had a total blast as both The Boss and myself headed down to Tattershall in Lincolnshire, for the first birthday of Jo and Mark Channon’s beautiful and equally fantastic shop…… …..’Let’s Create’.  Now those who are regular readers will recall last year, when we were there for the opening day.  The Boss did the official bit and opened the shop, whilst I headed off into the countryside for mega adventure, with a WW2 village takeover.  Well as it happens, I managed to find myself amongst some more WW2 themes on this…

Sheena…Live! For One Day Only………

Posted on August 1, 2014

Af’noon all. Ok, so me old hands are now being held very firmly in the up position, as we have had such a week, that the old bloggage ( and all the BT problems that go with it) has taken a bit of a back seat.  Back next week though, with news and also pics from this weekends gig at Wor Jo and Mark’s shop doon in Tattershall.  Our Good friends, Jo and Mark Channon, that is, as it is the one year anniversary of the new gaff being opened by our hero…..So when they asked about a return visit…….No brainer really.  So The Boss and myself will be firing up the old Sheenmobile and heading of south later this afternoon, and if you are…

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…
