What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday? WOYWW#482

It is Wednesday isn't it? These Bank Holidays play havoc with my timeline. Anyhow, here's my desk this week.


To explain, we are having (yet) more work done which required rummaging around and moving stuff. Found this pretty large mosaic under my bed. Probably been there at least 10 years. Finally decided to finish it off. It was going to go outside but can't be bothered faffing around getting a piece of marine ply cut to size (that'll be another 10 years) so just gonna go for it onto a bit of bog standard  MDF I have lying around. As you can possibly see it's lost a few bits and although I have extra tiles I can't find my nippers. (Also no longer sure I have the strength to use them). So a little bit of improvisation may be required. So that's the project. Watch this space!!

Why am I telling you this? And what is WOYWW? Well, this is our weekly cruise around the work desks of the great and good, checking out what's new and what peeps are up to. Hosted by the lovely Julia of Stamping Ground. Hop on over and check it out. Join in. We don't bite. Happy Wednesday.

The Kraft Project

I have had another blog for a while, supposedly to showcase my cards etc from a slightly business viewpoint - to be honest I'm not sure that it is very different to this one and suffers from about the same amount of neglect!! But there is probably some musing I would do here on my personal blog rather than there.

However, given that I haven't yet worked out how to post to two blogs, I'm adding a link here
Today I am blogging some work with alcohol inks.

What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday #479

Popping in. Been consistently AWOL again for weeks.

All current commitments met. Feeling organised (it'll never last). Empty desk as have tidied prior to playtime - and look what I have to play with!!

Recent news, I have become a docrafts demonstrator, so  that has kept me busy.

Also still doing my craft club and workshops.




Here's what we made last Saturday.
Great fun.




Why am I telling you this? Well it's Wednesday, a day for a quick look at the desks of the great and the good. Hosted by the lovely Julia, at The Stamping Ground. Pop on over and check it out.

Happy Wednesday.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday#474

Back after a short break - been very busy!! BUT, after cancelling a couple of classes because so many people were on holiday or couldn't cope with the heat, I suddenly had a free day yesterday - no deadlines, no classes to prep, no builders, no housework.... well, there's always housework but who cares?

So had a great day yesterday, playing but also spent some time outside enjoying a beautiful day.

Here's my rather painty desk after a couple of hours de-stressing.



And the project I am making. Still needs palm trees and some accessories but it's just sooooo cute.

Happy WOYWW everyone.

WOYW?W - 9th Anniversary

Well it’s here! Happy Anniversary everyone!!

Well this will be short, as I am on me holibobs and have to use my phone. Nightmare!!so apologies for any gibberish and typos. Ok, well you might think holiday? Oh no desk. But in fact I am in a lovely little cottage in the Cotswolds with my mum and sister having our very own crafty retreat. We have turned the conservatory into our very own craft room and its been a hive of activity.

Ok phone has decided we will have to without picture, but if you have the capability and inclination here is a link to them on Facebook. I will try to work out how to add them but for now this is the best I can do.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 467

Morning all! Once again it's Wednesday (wonder how many times I've writen that) and time for our weekly deskhop courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. Read about it, join in, we don't bite (!)

My desk:-


Cards to the right are from Tuesday's craft class. I need to make up the extras and then put it all away. Little suitcases are samples from my next class - just can't stop making these, they are so quick to put together. I actually dug out my bind it all to make a little album to fit in one of them. ou will be forgiven for thinking this was a little posed - I was halfway through tidying up the craft room when I remembered it was Tuesday and time to take a photo before there was nothing to snap. So this desk had been done. In case you think I am a reformed character here's the other one.



I have no idea how I work like this. Anyhow, would love it if you could come for a visit, will try and get round as many as possible today as it's a bit of free time for me today - huh, heard that before.

And let's not forget next week is the 9th anniversary Swap! Last call for ATC swaps! After going through my comments I think I have swaps set up with Nikki C, Annie, Neet, Kyla, Kelly, Sarah, Suzanne and of course Shaz. I cannot remember who I have actually swapped addresses with but I'll sort that this morning. Might even make my ATCs today, you never know.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #465

Mornin' deskers!! Here's my desk.


Have just been working out projects for next week's class. These navy and white die cut layers are coming along nicely. Towards the back you can see some cards we made at class yesterday - deconstructed zig zags!! A really fun and effective technique. Just need to finish those off. A nearly finished card using up some heartfelt creations papers. At the back you can just see a little suitcase - that's another project for half term I need to finalise, been wandering around my desk area for weeks. So that's me. Feeling a lot better yesterday and today, the old arthritic aches and pains are easing off. So it's a house day. Need to catch up with all those horrid chores. OH will be back today, he has been to Helsinki celebrating Vapu (?) aka Mayday. I believe a lot of fizz is involved. Can't have him thinking I haven't moved from my craft desk for two days........

Why am I telling you this? Well hop on over to  WOYWW HQ at Stamping Ground where you can find out all about it. Oh, and if you are in the running for an anniversary swap do let me know. I shall actually be away in the cotswolds so will need to be a bit organised this year. Well, there is always a first  time for everything they say...... Happy Wednesday
