What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #712

Good Morning All!! Welcome to 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 join in yourself.

Another fleeting week - but a pretty quiet one although I did go to see Mamma Mia with my sister. Otherwise it has it has been a tad chilly and I haven't ventured far. I also managed to break my glasses so have been making do with an old pair whilst I wait for the new ones to arrive. They are not too bad except for the pc and close work - so forgive any typos when I visit!!

So here's my desk, with a cute card for a friend's grandchild. 



My clothes dryer seems to be populated with lots of tiny pieces of clothing - yes DD is longing to get nesting and prepping but still no firm moving date for their house purchase. Fingers crossed we hear this week or I may have to start seriously thinking about implementing Plan B.  (Insert terrified face here). 

That's all for me this week, hope to get a bit more crafting done when I can see a bit better. I have a ton of birthdays in February and March and still have quite a few to do.

Have a good week, love n hugs Cindy xx

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #711

 Morning All!! Welcome to 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 join in yourself.

Well this year it seems is starting as it means to go on. I mean honestly, where did that week go? 

So, the desk... 

Can you tell I've been making an effort to work tidy? Been making up a few little die cut figures to go on those patchwork Christmas cards I showed last week. Here are the ones that I've  finished off with bits I already had cut out and/or made up.  



I also managed to squeeze in a special make this week. Like how this turned out, not my usual thing.



In our 'nuclear' family group we did not do presents this Christmas,  we booked a  family activity instead. We went to Monopoly Life Sized on Sunday and then out for a meal. It was a real hoot, and even I managed to join in (well couldn't let the teletubby show me up could I). Really a series of mini escape room type challenges - but for some of them we really needed those younger eyes, knees and reflexes!! 

So I'm off for a massage this morning, then have an afternoon of WOYWWing and thinking about my next craft club meet. No idea what to do for a project and its shaping up to be a class of 10 or more. Must get my thinking cap on!!

Have a great week, love n hugs, Cindy xx

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #710

 Welcome to 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 join in yourself.

11th of January already!! Finally starting to get busy in the craft room again after alll the festivities. Here's the desk Monday. I'm still finding UFOs and these are the remnants from a workshop I did 6 years ago, original project here. Judging by the number of spare project packs I was expecting more people but I remember it being well attended. Mayne not!!


Anyhoo, no interest in making another circle book/album but I do have this NBU die (the blue one in the centre above). I think I can use up lots of those bits of paper. I really like the samples I have seen using this die so time to experiment. Because I already had lots of green circles and panels cut out the only extras I have used(apart from card bases) are a couple of sheets of blue and white card. 

Turned out quite well I think, it's great just cutting bits and sticking down - no pressure to think!! I've done 11 for now, and the plan is to load them up with the other bits I have die-cut/stamped already like the one to bottom left below and see where that gets me. 


So I shall be carrying on with that today in between desking - watch this space!! 

Have a great week,

Cindy xx

Wnat's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #709 - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

 Welcome to 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 join in yourself.

Well another year has slipped away and my craft room has received a little clean up as there has been so little time for crafting. I moved my big glass mat and found this little guy - he'd obviously been put underneath while the glue was drying and then been forgotten about!! 



How did your Christmas go? We drank a lot of prosecco and played a lot of board games. Dark Cranium was brought out of retirement and I now remember why - the last time we played I laughed so much I nearly choked. Ditto this year. We really liked a new game called 'Tension'. Bit like 5 Second Rule without the annoying noisy buzzer thing. Still getting to grips with 'Colt Express' but love the train pieces and think it will become a favourite. No NY resolutions from me apart from trying to be a more regular participant on Wednesdays but this did make me smile.

Despite crafting being on the back burner I did pick up a commission over the holidays which I really should try to do and I have managed to get all my birthday cards for Jan and Feb ready to be posted. January and February are my Christmas card making months - I kid you not - and I can't wait to get cracking.

On which note, thanks to everyone who sent me a card, they are truly appreciated!! Decs came down Tuesday but I haven't been through the cards yet so will post some pics next time.

Have a wonderful week,

Cindyxx
