WOYWW 177- Back Again!!

Hello Friends

Yep! It is Wednesday, aka Hump Day, středa, mercredi  mercoledì, miércolesmiercuri, dimecresMarcuridies Mercurii, Mittwoch, Wodanstag, сряда sryadasrijedaсреда sredaśroda, среда sredáсреда/sreda or cриједа/srijedastredasredaсереда sereda), Keskiviikko, Miðvikudagur, Mikudagur,  Ónsdagur, and Onsdag. (Thanks Wikipedia!)  If I have missed your language, please feel free to comment!

So as is customary in Blogland I am here to take part in the mid-week/fourth day/third day, depending how you look at it, blog hop aka WOYWW.  So without further ado...da da da da da daaaaaaa........(turn away if you have an aversion to busy desks...yes you Sandra!).... my desk is not is busy!!

I took this photo straight after completing my homework which the Mistress of the Desks set at THE Crop......and it is still like that now!

Miss Julia gave us a card, a Snippet of lace and ribbon, some sparklies. a heart, a flower and a house.  So I created a door complete with knob (apparently a little known factoid but there are more black front doors in Wales than any other part of the UK, apart from Downing Street possibly!  Ours is wood colour as it is wooden!! Logical really!)  I added some Snippets of the papers I was using at THE Crop, some more ribbon, some lace which the friendly Pixie gave to me and a map with arrow and some Martha Stewart punching.  Oh! and a title cut with my Cricut!   Abracadabra, a layout of the day was born.

Now here is what you do now.  You kindly leave me a comment (please) then you link on the WOYWW and you hop over to Miss Julia's blog and you enjoy a hop around the world via crafting desks!  I will then call by to see your desk later as I have work and then dancing.  If I don't get to you today I will call by later in the week.

TTFN and thanks for calling by.

Ohhh, you used your gift bag items wisely...what a great idea to turn the house into a card flap and then lefting reveals the fun of the day!
Looks great!

Of course the velvet will turn up the moment the postie's been - 'tis the Law of Sod, lol!! Have fun with all the beady playing :D

Looks like you had a great time at the crop, and fabulous reminder of it as well.

And I agree, a busy desk, not a messy one.

Love what you've done with all the bits from the crop! I've saved mine to do a page or 2 in my Smash books. Take care Zo xx 71

I love a messy desk Sam, as you can see from mine. Yours looks like one of those memory games. You know the ones where they have loads of items on a tray and you have 30 seconds to remember them. Then they take an item off and you have to identify which one has gone.
Love the layout - just wish I'd been there.

Just back from walking the dog and catching up on a few desks.

Caz said...

And I thought mine was messy....... ;-)
You can't be creative and tidy though so that means you must be a very creative person, right?? :-)

Erika said...

Your desk is just like mine...busy!
Love your LO and would have loved to join the crop but live too far north.
Have a great Wednesday, hugs Erika. Coming from room 101 this week!

Fabulous LO Sam - love the way you used our little bit of homework. A special reminder indeed of a very special day! I think I was there too :) Hugs, Di xx

Your LO is great, Sam. I love how all the flaps open up to reveal the photos.
You look as though you used your gift bag very well in deed and now have a lovely reminder of your great day.
