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.

Wanted to say that most of my swaps have been posted already. My PIF is ready and waiting. Address details please to cashplantatyahoodotcodotuk. Only address I can pick up from here. Or go via FB and message me. Same goes to any swappees that have yet to get in touch.

Forgive the boring post, will try to sort!!

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

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #464

Morning all. Have only just realised it's Wednesday, and time for another deskhop courtesy of The Stamping Ground. Check it out for more details!

OK, desk still littered from bits n bobs from yesterday's craft class. I usually try to sort it all in the afternoon but I was so knackered yesterday I went to bed so it's still all here.. Getting old I guess!

For some reason I decided we would try image transfers - not my most inspired choice of technique to demo I must admit. But, they gave it a go, and three of the ladies used theirs on a card. But I got the distinct impression they would rather not do it again!! You can see my original sample back centre and a couple of others I did that need to be made up into cards. AFTER I've unpacked the rest of the bags.

So that's that. Have a good Wednesday!!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday WOYWW #463

Wednesday again! and only a handful of weeks till the 9th anniversary and ATC swap! I shall be swapping extra ATCs so do contact me if you are interested.
9th anniversary of what I hear you ask? Well hop on over to The Stamping Ground the home of WOYWW, read all about it and join in!

So, this week's desk. I need to finish off some off this stuff in my to do pile. (A different pile to the WIP box which rarely gets a visit). I've spread it out so it looks a bit more interesting - remnants from classes and playing that need to get made into a card or 'filed' away.Still need to do the cover of that ATC book.  Couple of hours should get that done. I'll be round to visit but might not be till later. Got some work to do on my 'other' desk that will keep me away from the pc today

Happy Wednesday!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday # 462

Morning Deskers! Home today, everyone is out until late, no visitors expected, no need to go out. Sounds like a crafty day with a bit of deskhopping to me.

I went to Ally Pally at the weekend. The stash is already secreted away, you'd never know I'd bought a thing. I haven't however found a place to put these yet, the results of the 6 workshops I managed to fit in.

Here I have CASED a design by Sue Wilson, who very kindly explained how she made this card after I commented how much I liked her sample. Tried it out with my crafty ladies at class yesterday as well. They were very impressed with what they made!

I am finishing up another mini book which I am going to use to hold my ATCs from a monthly swap I'm in with the girls at UKPC. It's pretty busy, I used up some of the papers from my last gelli class.

 I have lots of prep to get finished, but hope to get round to everyone today, I have failed miserably the last couple of weeks. Why am I telling you this? Because today's post is about the weekly WOYWW bloghop. It's easy to do and lots of stuff to look at. For more info and to join in go here.

Happy Wednesday.
