WOYWW 153 - some semblance of normality

And we're at it again - welcome back to WOYWW!  For all the deets, head to Julia's web residence here and hop on the WOYWW train.  T'is indeed addictive.

Last week though, I ducked out.  I was railroaded by a snotty grotty cold that actually knocked me off my feet for 24 hours.  I stayed home from work last Weds, and indeed, it's a mark of how poorly I was because I didn't even sneak a peak at WOYWW let alone post my own desk up.  Well, couldn't have you all visiting me and catching my cold now, could we? LOL

This week my desk is chaotic.  I went to the crop on Saturday, but only managed to not quite finish what I'd started the previous month!  Mr Mojo wasn't up to playing nicely with friends, so I fiddled and faddled, and faffed.  And now the double layout is at home for finishing, as I didn't have the letters I needed for a title.  They're done now, but that's how my desk will look this Wednesday because I'm too tired to tidy up tonight.  In fact, Mr B is more tired as he took himself to bed at 10pm, and as I type this he is snoring softly on the bed, not having even undressed or climbed in!  Awww.  No, I'm not taking a photo because he does need a little dignity, even for him!


As some of you will have read, we made some art dolls for Julia as a WOYWW 156 gift - I won't post my pics up yet as I'll let her have the fun of sharing them in closer detail with y'all.... And I think this is a lovely picture of her looking delighted, regardless of what awful photos she thinks I took!


Till next week!  See you in a comments box near you....

Yes, it was fun and she was delighted. Glad you are feeling better, and glad you managed your doll too! And that layout? Maybe next month :) My record is about a year between starting something at a crop and eventually finishing it LOL!

Hi Morti, Nice to see a photo of our Julia. I think you must have short legs looking at all the stored goodies under your desk! Or maybe bruised shins....Happy WOYWW to you Helen 50

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh gawd...if that's a great shot...at least you could have warned me about the hair!! Hey ho, to say delighted is an understatement though, so I let you off! I didn't like to ask at the crop about the length of time you were on that LO, but if you're poorly, it;s hard to make a decision isn't it...muzzy and snotty is not a winning combo! NO, cold not from you, seriously, it had started with a cracking sore throat last week.

Miriam said...

2nd time lucky!!! I meant to say that you have a beautiful workspace - love your scrap pages.

Ah! So that is what J looks like then! I imagined her with long hair. Wrong! Glad she liked your dolls. Looking forward to seeing a good shot of the layouts.

I caught the same evil cold that is making the rounds. 'Tis no fun! Your desk looks happy in its chaos. You have lots of great things in reach above and below.

Samantha Elliott said...

Hee Hee - That Bunny I bought in Prague some years ago at Eastertime. It smells of chocolate even after this long. I am talking 2004!! It has hung on that bag since I bought the bag!

Thanks for sharing a picture of Julia - so much nicer when you can put a face to a name,
Sorry you were ill last week and had to miss out but glad you are back with us again.

Kat Griffin said...

I do like those dolls ...you all are so sweet to do that. it definitively touched her heart. She is mailing me a WOYWW button and I am all excited to receive it and make it a permanent part of my work area. and wear it to art festivals and shows . I also have been battling a cold over here on the other side of the big pond in Ohio USA. my cold is winning so far but I'm hanging in there ! cough, cough, sniffle-snaffle-dribble, hack-hack, ker-CHOoooooo
