WOYWW 149 - the staycation one...

Well, you'd think with a few days off I'd have made it round everybody's blogs this week, wouldn't you?  Must try harder!  I didn't even make it around everyone who visited me (hangs head in shame), so please do accept my apologies, and expect a visit very shortly!

This week we have a busy desk - I've been making something I promised to do for a friend years ago, and as it's her birthday on Thursday I felt moved to make something for the occasion.  Thus you see the B box.  Don't ask.  It's a long, convoluted and somewhat obscure story (I'll tell you later Doone) and more than a little odd...



Crop this week saw me produce three layouts, of which I only managed to finish...none.   All three have had to have something added, whether it was a simple date, or a better title...or...well, number three isn't quite done yet and I wouldn't dare to show it on here anyway for fear that Mrs D would have my guts for garters...



Oh yes.  The reason I'm rambling on about my desk?  WOYWW of course!  For those that don't know - it's a weekly hop round a few of the desks in the world that are baring all.  Join in here if you dare!  I have a lovely badge courtesy of Ms Julia which I have epically failed to photograph this week.....DOH!

See you in a comments box near you!

We can go to WOYWW confession together - had a week of hardly any visits too...the world and weeks are spinning too fast. Love the LO's and really adore that first sassy smiley face! Thanks also for the la di da pic from a while back - could be my ideal holiday home!

So did you and Julia go to the same crop? I didn't make it around to everyone, either, so don't feel too bad. Have a super WOYWW from # 9 this week!

Cool LOs, and I'm sure there's more to life than commenting, - people will be forgiving for sure.....

Don't worry, I believe there are several of us who haven't gotten around to everyone's desk. Your layouts are beautiful and I love the B Box...whatever it is!

Helen said...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I like the beginnings of the B Box - wait with baited breath to see what that's going to turn out like. But the girly LOs are simply gorgeous, love the flower embellishments on them and the swirly whatsits, really pretty!
Hugs, LLJ #3

Neet said...

Love those LO's - a not a pink person, well I thought not until I saw these - they are fab! Just fell in love with that pink and it gores so well with the girls' photos.
Thanks for sharing - and your comment on my blog - I always seem to be playing "catch up". Thanks for the number too - makes it so much easier. Hugs, Neeet #10 again xx

mamapez5 said...

That box will be gorgeous when it's done, and I love the layouts. I so want to get back to scrapbooking. If only there were more hours in a day! Kate x

jill said...

Happy Crafting

JoZart said...

Sounds hectic there! The more time you have the less gets done and it sounds like you are paddling upstream!
Love your LOs...
Love joZarty

MaggieC said...

Don't beat yourself up too much about lack of visits. It took me till Monday just to visit those who visited me. Your layouts are great, especially that gorgeous laughing child - beautiful. Have a good week. xx Maggie #2

Julia Dunnit said...

I don't mind you showing my considerable backside off on your blog...it's preferable to a shock picture of the frontside!! Love the 2 LOs you've yet to finish...I don't see anything missing except a bit of journalling, so that's just another five minutes then!! I liek the way you can move between LOs without finishing them..I am incapable of that sort of flexibility!

Spyder said...

very busy desk again this week, so don't worry about the visits! I visit but sometimes just can't comment. Have a great week! HaPpY WOYWW!
(Lyn) #37 now I think

Mindy Adams said...

It happens to the best of us. I am not sure if I have made it to everyone yet or not. Hopefully soon. You will see when you get to my post. Enjoy the rest of your WOYWW. Mindy #120

Shazsilverwolf said...

Gorgeous layouts, and you are not alone in struggling to get round!happy WOYWW, Shaz #94 xx

CraftygasheadZo said...

Super LO's, I didn't visit all last week either, a first for me, but life takes over so don't worry about it. Take care, enjoy WOYWW snooping! Love Zo xx 75

Elizabeth said...

I didn't make it round everyone either ... life was just too hectic altogether ... hoping to do better this week. Your layouts are lovely - that little girl's smile would light up a room and like how the flowers compliment the pretty painted face in the second layout. The mind boggles as to what you could put in a layout that would have Mrs D gunning for you :) Happy WOYWW. Elizabeth x #26

Li'l Pidge said...

Dont worry about the visits, I dont make it round many...there are SO many now!! Some great layouts there also.

Doone said...

next week mostly I will be finishing a kaffe fassett knitted wrap two meters long one meter wide that i started FIVE years ago thinking - yeah I'll get that done for my BFF mate for her 50th,

if I tell you there is still a meter to go and her birthday is in June....

so why the living blazes am I blogging and painting when I should be knitting?????

and i am awaiting your visit with bated breath Guessing at the FULL story - anytime in the next five years will do, see If I make allowances for myself it makes me kinder to others too....

I'm not in it for the return visits I'm init for the snoops....and the long crazy stories no matter when they are told

Dxxx

BumbleVee said...

That's the problem....if we spend the necessary amount of time surfing around all the blogs participating...there is no time left to do any crafting...eerrghhh .....

Jeremy and Samantha said...

Woyww confession I missed posting last week due to a funeral so you are one step ahead of me. Your layouts are great and I just love that adorable face you captured in the photo of the first layout. Happy Woyww! #59

Bella said...

lovely inky space. you are lucky to get that far at a crop. I am never that organised and feel like I am moving house and still dont have everything I need.

Queen Of Toys said...

Ah you have a pen tidy/tool tidy similar to mine, it is the best tool tidy, mine is a different shape though. I keep my sissors and tweezers in mine.

Lovely layouts, I must get back into scrapbooking.

Happy crafting

Sam said...

Do you think Sister Julia should start a confessional somewhere? Perhaps in the kitchen! LOL!
Beautiful layouts you have done. I am with you on the finishing off faffing though. I did 10 layouts in one weekend and still have to complete 3 as I need to do titles!
See ya soon

Kezzy said...

Wow gorgeous creativity on your desk, love what your making and I shall not ask about b box lol. I think a lot of us at some point hang our head in shame as life gets in the way, but I also think everyone understands as well. Love the layouts they are beautiful. Happy woyww :-) Kezzy x
