WOYWW June 15th

Hi everyone,
Well here's my desk today - What a mess!!!

Yesterday I took a class at the Craft Barn and here are some of the cards I made using a paste called DreamWeaver and glitter etc. I had a lovely day but I was exhausted after all that concentration!!
I also bought a little stamp (I think it's a birdhouse) which if you look carefully you should be able to see it. I stamped it out a few times and laid them on top of each other to give a 3D kind of effect, (decoupage I suppose?) I then added a little birdie to it to look as though he's sat inside! A quick and easy make to do sat infront of the telly.
You will also see my Pif I received which I showed last week - I want to make sure it is visible every time I post photos of my desk, I still love it!
The PIF i sent has now been received so I can post a piccie of it this week.

I put it in a frame and sent it all the way to Canada, I'm so pleased it got there in one piece and I am happy to say that Karen http://stamprr.blogspot.com/ liked it very much!!! - and now, thanks to Julia http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ here at WOYWW I have a new cyberspace friend.
Off to work now - if it's quiet I visit as many desks as possible, if it's busy I will have to wait till tonight to get round as many as I can!
Pop over to Julia's blog to join in the fun.
Have a wonderful WOYWW

WOYWW and my Lovely PIF

morning everyone,
What a fun week last week was on WOYWW. I have to show you the lovely PIF I received from my new friend Teresa at http://maudmartha.blogspot.com/

isn't it beautiful, and I am so pleased that thanks to Julia I have a new bestest WOYWW.
My Pif I sent went all the way to Canada and although I posted it that same day I'm not sure if Karen has mine yet, so I can't really post a piccie of it just in case.

Thanks for all the great comments re the recipe scrapbook I had on my desk last week. If you want to see what some of the pages look like you can always clickm on my flickr photostream at the top of my blog.
I have to be really quick as my husband is waiting for me to go up to London with him for his 6 month medical review.
just one more photo of what I was getting up to last week:

First cake I have ever really tried to make. It was for my mum and dad's golden wedding anniversary on Saturday.
Would love to carry on but can't tell you how much trouble I will be in if i don't get off this computer NOW........
Have a great day xxx

Happy Birthday / Anniversary to Julia Dunnit's WOYWW (2 years old today) This is an amazing visit of messy craft desks all over the world, and it is fab! Visit http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
My desk is as untidy as always but you should see the Wedding present I am still finishing off for my brother and his wife. (They celebrated their first anniversary last week!!!! and I am still adding the finishing touches to this mammoth task!) Over 60 recipes from their friends and family that came to the wedding. I enjoyed it but won't be doing it again in a hurry. I dread to think how many hours I have put into it!I have promised to give it to them this Saturday as we have a big family barbecue, so I am still frantically embellishing pages one year down the line!!!
I will keep this short and sweet as I can't wait to go and nose around everyone else's desks and to congratulate Julia.
I have my WOYWW PIF already so will look out for the person I have to send it to and will e-mail them for their address.
Have a great Day!!!!

WOYWW 18th May

Good Morning, everyone.
This is my workdesk this morning! - A mess really but heh, what's new. I did have a tidy up and a rearrangement but since then I have just made it a mess again.
I missed last weeks WOYWW, and have to say that although I was busy with friends staying foe a few days, I think I was having withdrawal symptoms as I was actually thinking about all those desks out there and what was on them! Do I need to get a life???
Anyway, you can see some new punchws on my desk which I have avoided buying for ages but have decided they will save me so much time!! There are also some lovely glass jars that I picked up from a car boot sale (4 for £1.50) - they'll look lovely with coloured buttons in.
Talking of car boots, take a look at my floor space (eughhhh). My daughter has convinced me to DO a Car Boot this weekend, and we have sorted stuff out and yes, it has been plonkd in my Craft room for sorting! TYPICAL! My daughter is 13 and desperate to earn some money (for what I don't know). She really wants to get a little job, which I admire her for, but because of her age she just can't! (H&S, insurance etc) I think it's ridiculous, I had a job at 13, and feel sorry for her that she can't. She can't do a paper round either as we are too far away from any shops etc. What about you did you have a job at 13 and do you think it's crazy that our kid's can't???
Rant Over!!!! If you are wondering what WOYWW is all about pop over to Julia's blog at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/ and have a mooch around.
I will be visiting desks and looking forward to the WOYWW PIF in a couple of weeks!
Have a great day X

WOYWW - No Time To Play

I'm busy with other things today but wanted to let you know that following the advice on all last weeks comments I have put the "I was featured in Homemade Magazine" on my tool bar.
Also I found out I have won the Antique Edwardian Scrapbook that DearestJackdaw was giving away on her blog.
http://dearestjackdaw.blogspot.com/ I am majorly excited about that.
Anyway, no piccie of my desk but I will have a great time visiting lots of your desks.
WOYWW is the brainchild of Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.com/
Have a great Day!
