WOYWW 128 - And Yes! It is still tidy!!

Hello Folks

Guess what day of the week it is - again!  Is it me or are the weeks going faster the closer we are getting to the C word?

For those of you who visit my desk on a Wednesday and came last week you will remember that my desk was tidy.  Well, sorry to disappoint you, but it is still relatively tidy this week though there are signs of life!!!

 For a start, Mr Monkey is trying to get in on every photograph!

I currently have three small albums on the go.  These were all buried under the pile in the corner of my desk but now they have been liberated they will be finished.  They have to be finished as they are to be on my Craft Stalls at the forthcoming Craft Fairs. 

If you want to see other desks on this mega-nosey then please click on the button on the side of my blog to be transported to the Lovely Julia Dunnit.  From there you will be able to join in the multi-national nosey that is WOYWW!!

Off to work, dancing and then home.  In between times I will try to pop into see your desks!!!  If I don't make it today I will get there as quickly as I can!!

Before I go though I would like to say a huge Thanks to Neil who sent me a little package last week with some beautiful ribbons in and the most exquisite card.  You really need to see it in daylight to get the best of it.  It is gorgeous.  Thank you Neil.  You made my Friday when I opened this!!


Have a great Crafting Week!

Hettie

Hey there - tidy desk, missus!!
I like the psychedelic pink/yellow floral paper, very retro. Mr Monkey looks very Austin Powers by the side of it!
How did your craft fairs go??

I'm chuckling to myself here ....my Mitzy monkey is always sitting on top of my industrial machine watching me work yet for some reason she is missing in the photo I took this week....maybe she is camera shy?

Hope thos craft fairs do well for you. That is something I have never tried, as I am not sure I have the staying power to create enough to sell. Those little albums are great, but I do love those snowflakes.

Isn't it amazing what you find in the discarded piles? I usually only find bits that have gone wrong and dead spiders!! How lovely to have something made by Neil, he's very talented.

Yar I know the feeling of a clean desk, means nothing is happening so I've resigned my self to forever have a cluttered, messy desk lol.

Monkey is so photogenic that I'm not surprised he's keen to be in every photo. Those papers are bright and cheerful and the snowflakes are lovely. Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Elizabeth x #78

For being number 1 this week, I'm awfully late visiting. I'm so sorry I'm late, but, after a computer crash I had to stop by and get a bit of inspiration from your desk. It was great of Neil to send you that gorgeous card and ribbon. How awesome is that!
