What’s on Your Workdesk? Wednesday. Don’t know which one.

Hello fellow deskers, how are you all? The last couple of weeks have been a bit of a bust craft wise for me but I’m slowly gearing up again.


However what I have on my desk today is still related to Creepy House. (It goes on till September so get used to it).  I am putting together a sample as making a memory album is one of the craft projects we will do with the kids this summer, we’ll have a competition for the most imaginative.  This one will be a creepy house (I’m sensing a theme…) and is (hopefully) just to get their creative juices flowing, they certainly wouldn’t be able to do the cutting out. I thought I’d actually try a bit harder with this one to make something nice but I was still incredibly pleased to come across this template on the Creating Keepsakes Blog. Intellectually I know it isn’t that hard to come up with my own House design but it is sooo much easier and quicker when someone else has done the hard work. It is nowhere near finished but hasn’t taken me long to get this far, will finish it tonight I should think.

Anyhoo that’s it from me. More creepy things to come – and completed Mr Wolfie is in the post below if you want to see how he turned out.

And the WOYWW thing? If you don’t know by now  - shame. Pop on over here to find out more.

Happy WOYWW!!

I had trouble with the number too as julia didn't put it on her post either. I think it's 216 because I checked another blog. Lovely desk with spooky houses
Thanks for visiting

Glad to see someone else is working on more seasonal stuff at the wrong time of year!! Sounds like a fun project at the library. Yeah, it's an advent set die, should be fun to play with though.

Too early for me for the seasonal stuff, I always seem to leave close to the wire. Love the houses. Francesca #34

Ok, I'm over it. And still here. Like the non-summery theme, better to grab their attention. And to hell with the intellectual..if someone else has done it, why re-invent!!

Happy belated WOYWW, Cindy! Nice to hear you're getting back to crafting after a short break - you think you are rusty (your next post - gorgeous cards btw) - I haven't done any for months as everything is packed up! Still, the time when I can get started again is fast approaching, if I can fit it in between all the unpacking that will need to be done after the move.

Thanks for your lovely comment - yes, tons is happening now, and it's very exciting to watch the progress. If you ever do redo your bathroom, I found some excellent online sites and our bath came from Fresh Bathrooms on Ebay, which is actually Bath Empire under another name but cheaper prices. It's definitely worth getting stuff online as you save a lot.
