Recycled - CD Sunday DT

Hi all, what a week, I've been in a lot more pain than the usual level, and really locked up joints, so I haven't done an much at all apart from some reading, luckily I've had my OH doing a bit more massaging than usual on my back/neck/shoulders and legs, so it's lifted a little, almost back to my normal level, ah well these things are sent to try us, must try and catch up on some commenting next.

Anyway enough of my boring stuff, this week we are looking for some recycling over at CD Sunday, instead of the usual card I decided to finish off some of my craft pots, not very exciting or blinged up i'm afraid more for practicality than pretty, i've used various papers from MCS Cd's and recoloured them in purple of course so they all matched colourwise, I also used some fabric and paper ribbons and MS punched borders.  The pots/boxes are from Bisto, hot choc, cadburys mini eggs, sweetcorn tin, and some plastic containers that had lost their lids.

Whilst I was showing those, I thought I would show you my alchohol pen storage, that my OH made for me  recently using plastic piping and some tongue and groove wood we had left over from another project.
Lastly for today, I emailed into C & C for the first time today when Joanna Sheen was on with her House Mouse Saturday program this afternoon and attached piccy's of my latest two HMD cards and I had it read out and my piccy's shown, quite a weird feeling seeing two things I've made on the the TV !!

Some great recycling there Wendy! And I love your pen storage, what a clever/useful OH you have!
Sorry to hear you've been in pain. I'm sure you have pain relief sorted already but have you tried Arnica bath soak and gel from QVC? Another good one is Biofreeze that you can buy online. Gentle hugs.
