WOYWW #221

So after my beautiful clear desk of last week, see previous post, this week finds me busy making Steampunk ATCs.........except I became distracted..........
I have had to search for my chalks to enable me to finish another set of ATCs and found my paints............. then while looking for my Steampunk box I found a Watercolour paper pad......... tidying up is all well and good but I am still sure that, during a tidy up, more things get lost.
Anyways here is my desk - taken very late on Tuesday night, ok Wednesday morning!!  very early!!  still dark!!!

 My desk has a nice new big bottle of PVA (Lidl again - I do go to Tesco sometimes!!)  A sheet of ATC backgrounds and a box of bits........ not any old bits.  DH stripped down some phones and I had the innards for my ATCs!  There is also a 'stacker' jar of brads etc which I purchased from the Craft Shed all ready for my ATCs (the brads etc not the stacker) ...... when I finish my watercolour now of course!

For all you competitive types: I have set myself a challenge this week - to visit more than the 22 desks I visited this week!
O! Julia! what have you done to me........ and all the others, 143 at my last count!!  All of us here to share our workplaces, learn, laugh, cry, pray and above all else ............ nose!

Happy WOYWW everyone! (Thanks Julia!)


  1. Tidying up sounds great fun in your space! I rather like the painting - anywhere in particular?
    WOYWW is rather addictive, isn't it? Sort of need to set aside Wednesdays....
    Have a great week finding lots, getting distracted, and visiting loads of fun places!

  6. I really must look at the non-food items in lidl... I go in, get bread, salad, cheese etc and miss out on any crafty bargains!

  7. Sounds as if you have 'ooo shiny things' syndrome. LOL I get that way when I'm looking for something... oh that's where that went! kind of moments LOL

    I try to hit as many desks as I can because I'm just nosey that way. I start with all the numbers that correspond to my #, then the ones who visit me, and more if I have time throughout the week. Yep.. Julia knows us well LOL Creative Blessings! Kelly #107

  8. Your cards back there seems to be very beautiful. I'd like to see them better :-)

    Happy WOYWW, Uuna #58

  12. You look like you have had a creatively fun week with that beautiful landscape in your watercolor pad and your telephone parts. Those ATC backgrounds look great too! Happy WOYWW! Danie #62

  13. Lovely , lovely work on your desk. I notice on one of your other blogs you are a 'brummie girl' like me. Or have I got that wrong. Thankyou for visiting me. Anne x #71


I make my cards for sheer pleasure so thank you for taking the time to comment.
