What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #751

Morning deskers, 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.

Whoosh! Another week bites  the dust, in more of a blur than usual for me because I spent Friday thru Monday either attending to family members afflicted with a bad dose of gastroenteritis or being in bed myself. Of the 6 of us only 1 escaped. the 7th managing to be in another country for the duration. It truly knocked us down like nine pins. Well that's enough of that but it was a doozy. The desk.






















My desk this week is largely the repository of unfulfilled ideas - I did however manage to do most of a project I've been prepping for a little craft weekend I am going to on Friday. We are having an ATC swap so as well as  the 12 (!) ATCs we were asked to make I made this little book to keep them in. I can already think of ways to make it better but it'll have to do as is. The little stockings are for the last ATC which I will try and finish today before I need to start thinking about packing my bag, the supply list is pretty long but largely stuff I have already. 

Well that's me for this week, hopefully I'll have some nice bits to show you next time. Have a great week, love n hugs,

Cindyxx

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #750

Morning deskers, 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.

I was out last week and went to see 'Crazy For You' at the theatre.  I do love me some big band sounds but most of all - tap dancing!! 

Took a while to come down from the Macmillan Open House on the 8th,  but it was a beautiful day and we were able to sit in the garden until late afternoon. I made lots of tea and coffee and was able this week to send off a donation for £400. Every year I wonder is it worth it but I do enjoy seeing everyone. It also gives me an excuse to bake, the courgette cake was a runaway favourite this year which was gratifying as I had never made it before.

Anyhoo, here's this week's desk:

I am mainly catching up with various outstanding ATC swaps before I get started on prepping for my Christmas Card Class on the 27th and for a Christmas Craft Retreat on 28th/29th. I purposely kept this week fairly light on social commitments and apart from seeing Chelsey on Thursday my only outing has been to get my various jabs done!! In fact the lady who did my Covid jab today queried my age (66) - she said she thought I had made a mistake when I ticked the age box as I didn't look old enough to qualify. Well, I'll  take that any day of the week!!

That's it from me apart from a few sneaky Lionel pics. Have a great week everyone,

Love n hugs Cindy




Kew last week - bit warmer than today!!

Good morning deskers!! Sorry, I missed so many people last week I feel rather guilty. But thanks to all who commented and I apologise if I didn't reciprocate. I don't know where the time goes but I was busy prepping for my little craft fair. I sold over £100 worth of cards, but of course now that means I have hardly any stock for my MacMillan on Sunday so I'm back at the desk batch crafting this week. Managed to make 20+ cards Monday and my desk shows them at the 'just about to add some bling stage'. These are all now done but hope to crack through a similar number today and Friday with lots of inspiration from Lou Collins' 5 minute makes, and a few other videos from Gina K and Natasha Foote. Thank goodness for Youtube.


I'm doing this late Tuesday, as it seems if I haven't got the post ready to go first thing, I can't do enough visits early doors as I'm still struggling to upload something and then I don't get round all you lovely peeps.  

Keeping it short and sweet this week so I can start hopping. Have a good one.

Love n hugs,

Cindy xx
