What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #687

Morning all. It's that day of the week again.

I find I am rather unprepared to show you my desk this week. I have a friend who is coming over today with an impossibly long list of cards to make in 3 hours (sent to me at 2.15 yesterday) so I spent the afternoon trying to come up with ideas and track down stash (this gets exponentially harder to do when there are two of us in the craft room) so that we can at least have a stab at getting it done. I do sometimes find it a little frustrating that the only person I know who wants to come over and craft is the least crafty person I know so it ends up not really being crafting together but me crafting for two people..........

So the desk - the black card is one I have been working on after watching a Gina K video (which I can no longer find). The other is my attempt at making a 'dress' topper for today's visit (to meet the 'fashion' brief I was given). I found some templates on line but they turned out  ridiculously deep (as on the card) so the one on the side is my own version of the skirt  which I like better. 

The BIG project has at last been started, no thanks to my DD who, after scuppering my workroom plans Tuesday and Wednesday last week,  continued to work from home on Friday, be home in the evening (never happens) and then hang about until 5 on Saturday. Hopefully I will be able to show you something next week but don't hold your breath as the rest of this week is jammed.

So, why am I showing you my desk? Well it's our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and have a go yourself. 

Weather? Too cloudy and muggy. Rain or go away will ya. Blue skies every night at 7.30pm is not conducive to my good mood. And the milk is always on the turn, every cuppa is a lottery. First world problems.

Stay well, stay cool, Cindy xx

Very humid weather up here. Milk is fine but don't like the dull days and lovely evenings - want evening weather all day - it doesn't have to be over sunny or anything.
Love the card with the dress on but see what you mean and yours is a lovely alternative - the black card is stunning with those autumnal colours. Have a lovely day making cards with the non card maker. (did make me smile).
Hugs, Neet 1 xx

That didn’t give you much time to get things organised did it? I think people who don’t craft that much have no idea of what it takes to produce a beautiful card. I loved the dress card btw, it fits the brief perfectly. Thank you sooooo much for my gorgeous card, so kind of you to think of me, I really loved it - that’s a keeper for the JanCave shelves for sure!!
Hugs LLJ 8 xx

I Cindy, I love dimensional cards but never tend to send them if they have to go by post but have been working on some fancy folds so they can be flat but stand out when opened. I must say I love the dress idea. Have a lovely creative woyww, Angela x11x

I hope you get the cards done! I'm just grabbing my lunch and visiting some desks xx Helen #2

Wow talk about a short deadline Cindy. I do like the dress folding though and the black card is spectacular. Good luck with the project. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #15

Great cards and I know exactly what mean about people crafting with who don’t have the abilities. Crafting with one granddaughter Is almost doing it myself. I am going to teach her to crochet next week - that should be fun! Happy WOYWW. Angela #13

BJ said...

Know what you mean about the craft room/corner. Mine is made for just me so when my mate comes round she usually sits and crafts and I lie on my bed and chat/find stuff for her. We have been having on-line craft evenings lately which is cool. Said person is Kat you may remember from UKPapercrafter days. Love the black card - well effective. Hope the DD stays away for a bit longer sooooooon. BJ#5

Cute dress card! I think I know how you did the black & orange card as I have made several of those myself. Crafting as always fun, maybe your friend is learning from you and will eventually be able to hold her own. I remember when I started making cards, eons ago! Have a great week, Inky, Mittsy and Lindart #17

I agree with your assessment of the skirt! It is far too stand-out in the original and your version looks way better. Cute card! I have been scuppered this past week too, but luckily I managed to capture some stuff in various stages so my poor blog has not gone totally unloved. My WOYWW visits were what suffered, again. Family, Love 'em, but they don't half get in the way sometimes...
Late, but determined to DO BETTER this week!
Happy Tuesday! :D
