WOYWW 118 - Winter's Here Already

Hello there Fellow Crafters.

How are you all doing?  I hope none of you have been blown away by this terrific wind that is howling here in South Wales as I type this. 

Well, here we are again - Wednesday.  And what does that mean to a bunch of about 130+ daft Crafters every week?  NO - it is not bin day or washing day or bath the dog day it is WOYWW Day!! Yeah!!  I love Wednesdays or as it is also known "Hump Day" in our household as once we have hit lunchtime today, it is freewheel to the weekend!! Here goes, here is my mess...

As you can see I have a project on the go, which is a Birthday card for one of the girls I work with Judy - Happy Birthday Judy!!  Not a very good picture as it is dark here in Wales too!!  I received a text last night from a cousin of mine who seemed surprised that we even had electricity in Wales - yes, she will be slapped!!  I have used my  new Sizzix dies which came the other day from a well known seller beginning with Q followed by V and C!!

Not alot to report today, I still have too much to do and not enough days of the week to do it all.  My desk is still a mess and getting worse!  In fact, I think on Sunday I shall take the day to have a good clear up in my room and see what delights are at the bottom of all the piles of "stuff" that I have hanging around waiting to be finished.  I also managed to finish putting the finishing touches to my Bird Cage Tag Swap piece which will have to be posted tomorrow.  I do hope the recipient likes it!  The Swap was organised by the lovely FRANKIE.

Our internet is still dodgy and no doubt if this wind keeps up it will be gone again.  I apologise if I did not get round to you.  If only we could have an 8 day week but still work 5 days, or even better a 4 day working week but still get paid for 5!!

Don't forget to visit the lovely Julia HERE and join in the Hop Around the World via desks!!  Talking about around the world, Mr Michelmas has settled in very well though he likes to be in the kitchen.  He has a particular fondness for oatcakes.  I shall have to find a recipe so that I can keep up with him, Elizabeth if you are reading this I am sure you have a family recipe tucked away somewhere!!  Especially nice with homegrown honey I should imagine.

Bye Bye Folks and please leave a message for me after you have read my wafflings!!

Hettie.

Love your worktop - messy ones are so much more interesting than neat ones, don't you think. Keep up the good work and don't tidy too much on Sunday xx

Well, I got caught in the one sharp shower today in London but apart from that it was ok - makes a change! Hope you get to the bottom of your desk soon.... tag is on its way!!

That's not a messy desk! Your card is just lovely and Judy's goona love it! Noticed my blog candy on your sidebar. I have a new one now it's gorgeous so pop on over and get it to post and enter while you there!

Sunshine Girl said...

Actually it is bin day on Wednesday for me! love the card and I am taking place in the birdcage swap too - such fun! Have a fab week - hope the weather calms down for you but then lets face it if it gets too bad you will just have to stay indoors and craft!

What a treat of a card, looks good enough to eat. I had to stop going near QVC I am bad enough with the internet!

lisa said...

What is going on with this weather Sam!!! Still it's a good excuse to craft without feeling guilty isn't it. Know exactly what you mean about needing an 8 day week though.
It's lovely to be back with you and thanks for missing me!! I missed the QVC craft day which my wallet will be eternally grateful for!!
Hugs Lisax

The little cake card is great, and I like the textured paper for the pattie-pan base. Looks terrific. Desk looks good too, and ready for the Winter huddle.

Love your little cake card! and hope the internet behaves better this week! Happy WOYWW, Shaz in oz.x

Angie said...

Had to giggle over 'Hump Day' ....so true ...maybe that is another reason the WOYWW week feels so short.

Kim said...

What a very cool cup cake die!!I bet you can do a lot with that! We're done with the wind; but the rain won't quit!! Gah! MY BF Julie is coming over Sat., (if the roads open; our hill is sorta closed down) so I have to clean up enough space for two stampers...wish me luck! Have a great weekend-stay battened down!

Mrs A. said...

No sign of your little monkey yet! The boys are really disappointed. They even made me blow up your picture(well not for real) just to see if he was hiding). Your desk looks like you work in about the same space I do 8" square. Hugs Mrs A. #99

Hi, it's Saturday and I'm still making the rounds and I can tell you the wind has arrived here in Ayr and apparently it's due to get worse. DH tells me it's the tail-end of Hurricane Irene! An eight day week - wouldn't that be fine but I'd settle for a couple of extra hours in each day :) The cake on your card looks so yummy. Hope you enjoy your weekend. Elizabeth x #50
