WOYWW 391 - the post crop post!


How much fun was that?  I'm not going to bore you all silly with yet another post about crop.  The measly couple of photos I took pall into insignificance next to everyone else's, and none of mine were as interesting as all the others.... However, it was an amazing day, far too much cake was consumed and it was wonderful to catch up with old and new friends, and generally have a blast.  I got the tissue box finished!

So, lets move swiftly on to this week's desk, for the rounds of WOYWW (see Mrs D for details)...

This week I'm in two places.  The dining room table:

And the main crime scene upstairs:
A closer look at the table reveals Project Life cards - I'm doing the first year of my gorgeous Great-Nephew's life:

Hiding underneath that lot is some beading I'm doing for Christmas, that I started at crop:

And really bizarrely, on the main desk upstairs, I'm casting noses!  This belonged to a rather gorgeous black lab called Shadow.  It's a bit warped where the owners might have squished the mould a bit before it set, but each dog's nose print is unique, so it's still a special thing.... I just need to finish it and mount it for them.

So, move along, there's not that much that's interesting here!  See you in a comments box near you.  And I'm very sorry I didn't get around to commenting last week!  oopsy....

Oh my Sainted Aunt!
Where has today gone?
I was planning on joining the hop first thing this morning and here we are, 4pm!  Oops.  Busy day at work then...

So, without further ado, here's my desk for this week.

Yup.  That'll be a tidy(er) desk then!  I had a bit of a blitz on Sunday.  There's lots of plans afoot and things coming up and unfinished business to attend to and then we're off on a jaunt in business land and life will be moving swiftly on..... hehehehe

As the blog hop is actually about what's on your workdesk rather than what mess is your workdesk, here's what I'm currently working on.  I'm finally getting round to doing the second tissue box, and this is how it's coming on so far.  Stay tuned for a progress update!

Oh look, there's still a couple of houses lurking - I need to get those done too!
So, if you're scratching your head and wondering why I've shared these pics, go to the Stamping Ground blog and there the wonderful Mrs Dunnit will share all.
For some of you, I'll see you on Saturday at the big WOYWW crop - the rest, catch you in a comments box near you!  (especially those who commented last week and for whom I didn't even do the courtesy of publishing their comments till today, let alone visit.... oops.....)

Good afternoon all.... welcome to another edition of WOYWW, that is, What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.  Hosted by the inimitable Mrs Dunnit, if you'd like to know more or join in this week (or any week, for that matter) then head over to her blog here.

I'm a tad late to the party this week, having completely missed last week! 

So, without further ado, my desk!

The Cosplay Salon envelope in the foreground is a wig for Lil Miss B when she does our panto in January.... Photos at a much later date!

It's a mess, but here's a closeup....

There's still a random house or two knocking around following the weekend's Christmas Fair - I hung onto a couple to decorate for us.  Unfortunately, the weather wasn't good which usually reduces foot fall (and did) but I managed to sell 5 of my little houses, and one large strawsilk vase.  It meant I covered the cost of the stall.

This is my stall.....

And a close up of how the houses went.  I've still got one of the white and pinecone ones left, which I believe Lil Miss B may have her eye on...

Anyway - no time to hang around, there's a few of you to be visiting! 

See you all in a comments box somewhere near you.... TTFN.

A quickie from me today!  For those of you not familiar with the worldwide (small scale!) phenomenon that is WOYWW, go here for the info....

My desk hasn’t changed much.  In fact it’s actually even more cluttered and the houses that were present last week are in fact still there.  Untouched.  I’ve had no time to work on them, but that will change this weekend.  It’s going to have to, as the Christmas Fair I’m going to sell them at is the following weekend.  Sigh....
The cards I made last week are showing up there as well.  Not quite finished, I’ve decided I need to add a greeting to the front, and one or two of the backs need a bit of work to cover up wet ink transfer – oops – but otherwise I’m very happy with them.

There’s about a dozen different ones but I won’t bore you with pictures of the whole lot!  I’ve managed to capture the glitter on one though, as they do twinkle beautifully.

So, that’s it from me – see you in a comments box near you!
