WOYWW 286 and in the green corner.......

Hi Deskers
Well that was a quick week.....blink and its gone. please check in with Julia .. stamping-ground.. the hosted with the mostest and the lady who started this desk showing show.
anyway  my desk ..... there isn't much on it this week.... no really.... let's see shall we. ..... Warning .... photo heavy post..... but not a lot of chat :-)

Oh ok maybe not so empty..... what do we have....?
Peel offs (shock horror) these are from my crafty beginnings..... but I'm going to use them on some crockery painting ( cannot show yet)
At the back.... (and the front WIP)..... DLP as usual ....
The yellow blob is a set of Easter chicks.... I'm so current me! LOL
New glasses and the still undecorated case..
A new box of alphabet stamps.... sadly not the font on the front
Minions.... regular visitors will know I am a big fan.... these are labels from some JP's from Primark.... too good to throw away ... what shall I make with them?
Finally below is  the fairy grotto at the beginning of the  weekend,

It has been getting steadily worse for a while now.. I didn't want too..... but it had to be sorted 

After much huffing and puffing this was the state of play on Sunday night... Ready for action.

This is what I am actually working on today.... I had a request  from 3 year old GD Erin for a sparkly 'Frozen' scarf which she wanted to help me knit...... well you can imagine how that went on Tuesday morning can't you !!!!! (Erin even took the photo).

Please leave your Mr Linky number so I can find you.... I'm often on my phone during the day and its quite time consuming to look through several blogs for the right post.... ta
see you later

WOYWW 285 alternative space

Hi deskers 
Happy wednesday all....
Back for another desk feast all thanks to the lovely julia over at.
This week I thought I would share another work space with you as my real desk is a bit boring......  Warning there is a lot of mess. 

This is taken at the end of my Sew Christmas workshop on Saturday .... They were a lovely group of ladies and they made some great decoration this little chap. It was a great fun day. 

Oh .....ok so it doesn't count if I don't show my desk so here it is 

Maybe less boring than I thought here I am sorting out stamps for a  training  session at work ..... To make mixed media canvases with colleagues who aren't particularly crafty.....should be an interesting 50 minutes ( yes only 50 minutes) maybe I'll show and tell them next week
Eagle eyed regulars might notice the new glasses at the back. I finally gave up with the washi taped broken ones ... I  still haven't  finished decorating the box I keep them in yet though. 
Anyway ..... Happy snooping .....I might just pop by your way this evening ..... If you leave your Mr linky number that is.

WOYWW 284 rapid hand movements

Hi Deskers.
Its late Tuesday eve ... but  later than I usually write this post so I will be quick. My desk will still be the same in the morning so it still counts .... right?
Here' s my desk early Tuesday evening.

I have been busy sewing but cannot show yet (yes its for Christmas ..... there I've finally said it )
I had some unexpected crafting time on Tuesday evening while handyman was out.... so not to waste time I was like a mad woman (some might say that's  normal) trying to do a page in my DLP journal.
The prompt was add a tab.... I was just grabbing whatever was to hand..... sometimes it works .... sometimes it doesn't.....time will tell. Not sure where it is going.
What else can we see... lets do left to right shall we:

Brick wall fabric I am going to use on my next DLP page.
Drawer full of labels.... DD bra tag showing ... Mmm!
Mad page with stuff glued on and painted.
The only pair of scissors I could find and a funny post card ....not sure where that came from!
The left over tissue paper I used on the page ... it says Fossil ... not sure where that came from either.
The rest is the usual 'schtuff'.......... you know what I mean!

Lastly this is my latest page which was about including leaves... I used a fig leaf which reminded me of Adam and Eve and as October was breast cancer month I included a pink ribbon. No fig trees were hurt in this process ... the leaves fall off anyway.
Anyway that's it from my desk this week.... do pop over and see what the rest of the crafting world is up to via Julia at the stamping-ground.
I missed a few of my visitors last week.... sorry I  will try harder this week ... promise .... but it may not be until later in the week as its handyman birthday  today and I am out Thursday too.
please leave your linky number so I can find you

Smiley Friday no. 92

Hi peeps
Happy friday, how are you all doing. I'm really smiling this morning because I'm in the gym .... You may think Aghh at 8.30 in the morning.... But let me tell you that is great progress for me .... It's the first time I have felt like getting here at this time for nearly a year .... I must be feeling better 😀. 
If you came by last week I showed  a piece of sewing I was doing no correct answers arrived in the post so here is the answer .......not especially funny but might make you smile. 

This is the  original picture in case you missed it

This is the finished article...
And this is what it is used for.....

A baby's swaddle blanket .......for my niece who is due to 'pop' any day now.
No babies were hurt in these photos.:-).
I'm joining in with Annie's smiles again today.

WOYWW 283 changes ?

Hi deskers 
my desk is a mess..... No ....really. 
Do you care ?.....if you do may want to visit blog hopper in charge .....Joinery Julia at
if you don't care ....visit anyway to find out why you should. 

Anyway I had good intentions    ( remember those?).... of tidying it all up..
Did I ? not sure .....what do you think?

Nah! .....A little thing called 3 year old GD Erin happened so nothing got done except more cutting and sticking. 

Erin loves using my big shot so at the front is a pile of shapes she cut earlier. Next to that are her felt pens and a star shaped dish we decopatched between us. It was quite a productive morning. 
At the back some of you will be pleased to see a pile of Christmas stuff. It's Preparation for a sewing workshop in a couple of weeks .. Well You knew I had to give in eventually didn't you. 
Have a great week I hope to see your desk later ..... If you leave your Mr Limky number that is.
