Good Morning! I can tell I've not been in my craft room for over 3 weeks!
Looks spotlessly clean,  not a speck of glitter anywhere. Not even been bowling! things are so hectic.  Hubby still not feeling well.  His CT scan is Tuesday and they have brought his appointment forward to the beginning of August to see the specialist. Changed his medicine too. So fingers crossed.

Used scraps of paper for this one...The stars are Memory Box and the numbers don't seem to have a name on. Drawn the 'string on'. Strand of wool from a  lace sweater made many moons ago before cards took over. Shows I'm still a hoarder of most things lol..cause they do come in sometimes.
