WOYWW 114 - the one with not a lot of change to it....

Well, here we are again, off on the wonderous blog hop that is WOYWW, and my desk doesn't look like I've touched it.

That'll be because I haven't.  ROFL

Though it's turned out somewhat fortuitous, as  a couple of belated birthday presents arrived this week for Lil Miss B, and she elected to make thank you cards (my god, I've spawned a creative monster, none of my stash is safe....) and as a result my desk looks like this....



Here's the second of the two cards she made.....



Complete with not-quite-straight lines and dodgy peeloffs.  Mostly her own work with very little creative input from yours truly.

May I please state for the record that we haven't been idle - our hallway does now resemble a warehouse....


Now, the keen eyed and observant folk amongst you will recall that last week I made mutterances towards the general direction of a video tutorial for the shiplap timber wood effect thingummy wotsit.

Well, up there towards the top of my blog you will see a new tab that says "tutorials".  Look ye hence, and ye will find my tute.  Yup.  There it is, in all its slightly flickering, poorly lit glory.  I, being my own worst critic, hate it.  However, in self defence I will say that I did it completely off the cuff, in one take, and it's the first take.  It was a "now or never" moment, as I was in the middle of making Mum's card... It had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with me wanting to trying out the video camera on my new iPhone 4, no siree...... *attempts to whistle nonchalantly*

So there you have it.  Morti madness at its best.

Lastly, I'd like to share with you a photo of our newest neighbour.  Taken yesterday afternoon, when the wee mite was less than an hour old....


We do have video of it failing epically to walk in a straight line - its back legs seem a little too long for it at the mo, and it has been moved to the nursery pen because it wouldn't feed straight away, but oh, how cute!

Catch you all on the hop.....!

Aaaaaaw cuuuuute!! Alpacas looks as if they were made up of spare bits and pieces after all the other animals had been finished!! LOL!! Your moving boxes look impressive - hope all goes smoothly. Lil Miss B's card is fab - far superior to anything that I could achieve :) xx

sasa said...

Great post and photos. Will check out that rather spiffing tab in more detail later - well done on doing a tutorial!
I also have a Dutch pretties parcel giveaway on my blog today if you fancy some colour!
Thanks for sharing your WOYWW desk today,

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

At least SOMEONE is getting use of your craft desk. Your daughter made a card that looked better than any I make. So I was totally impressed.

Had I not read Jan's comment, I wouldn't have know that was an alpaca. Gotta admit I'm not a country girl. But the wee one looks pretty cute in that photo.

I'll be back to see your video. Must make up time, since I fell asleep not more than an hour after posting my link, and just now woke.

Cath said...

Bless that little one ...so cute.
Have just had a quick look at your lesson ...well done ...very effective technique.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ahh, new baby alpaca in the field next to Mr Ds workshop too - straight lines are obviously a genetic prob!! Your desk without the pile of papers, is actually pretty organised. Boxes in the hall,,,argh, nearly there,it will be worth it! Remember to ring if you need extra help!

butlersabroad said...

Glad to see that at least your desk is getting some use, even if it isn't you! Lovely card she made, good that she has an interest. Hope the packing/moving thing goes well. Such a sweet little baby alpaca, love the little squeaky noises they make!

Hugs
