WOYWW &... Talented Friends...

...today is Wednesday again *so where did that week go???* ...so that means that the loyal followers of Mrs Julia Dunnit take piccies of our workdesks and then bravely show them on t'internet. Today is going to be one of "those" days... packing is coming along nicely - to the point that I never want to see a cardboard box ever again...but...I need to pack up the Room of Stash...and I cannot bring myself to do it!




I did start and pack all my wood mounted stamps...they are in 5 pizza boxes...don't worry though, I haven't turned into a Ninja Turtle and eaten 5 pizza's...I have been very cunning...and saved up the ones that I have been sent lovely stash in...* and no, it wasn't an excuse to buy new stash...really...honest!!!* they have fitted in there nicely and I have even remembered to keep one little pizza box open so I can grab one of those "can't craft without" stamps if I need to. Other than that...goings on on my mucky desk today are a little framey thing I am finishing off and a WIP for an upcoming challenge on the Gingersnaps...which reminds me...they have a brand new challenge today - I have been a baaaad girl and not had chance to join in with this one...but if you fancy a challenge, hop on over to see their blog...chock full of loveliness...the new theme is ... Growth. Speaking of which... an update on the Zit Fairy...she has been back again...I even tried to stay awake all night to catch her...but nope, she flitted in and out and beggared off before I had chance to thwart her... and this time...she went and brought the Bad Hair Fairy with her too...told you it was one of those days LOL




I have popped in a piccie of what is above my desk ... I have a cork board and on it are various pieces of art that friends have made for me over the years... there is a Fat Page there from a lovely lady who sadly is no longer with us - she made it for me to commemorate the first time I met Mr T'Holtz *blimey that is 3 years ago!*... it is made up with lots of little photo's...bless her, she was a sweety, I don't know if some of you will remember her, her forum name was Cardmaker85... Also on there is a felted Stitchels birdy that Anne (Liverpool Lou) made for me, it is gorgeous... and above the board is the majority of a most beautiful piece of art that Dan made for me for Xmas last year - and no, you can't have it ROFL On top of the board is a canvas that Linda made...using my Stitchels designs and canvas and metal, another delish piece of art. There is a photo of my Grim, driving his train... and a photo of me and some American bloke I have met a couple of times (snort) Another Fat Page on there is by Andrea...I have so many of her pages now that I have my own book of her art...but this is the first one we ever swapped so it is on the board... I was a lucky lass and won a piece of Lynn's amazing art...which is on the board - tis the little fabric heart with a cherub on it...* wow I am so lucky to have such talented friends!* Spot the word TIM - that is part of a Fat Page made for me by Minxy - whom I had only just met at the time and it is another beaut... it is obscured slightly by another one of my WIP's that I had to bung up out of the way otherwise AlfieCat would have had his gnashers on them...he loves chipboard...but chipboard birdy's...he cannot resist... and...speaking about AlfieCat...get this...he has an appt with the *whispers* V E T today at 10.20. And guess what??? Despite the fact that neither I or Grim have mentioned the V E T this morning, he has slunk off to hide! I think he is under the bed...which is a pest because it means I have to drag all the junk out from under there to get him...and...how does he know!!!! Any animal psychiatrists out there, please tell me!!! Right, I had better go and get the little fella...tis just a check up today to see how his gnashers are after his op...he seems to be back to his old self again, which is a relief!
Until later....TTFN

Ooh FAB creations on your wall board. :) Good Luck with the packing.xx Fingers crossed for Alfie this morning too. They definately have a 6th sense. Gez.xx

Penni said...

Oh a very busy workspace.

Hope you get Alfie out from under the bed without too much fuss. Not sure what it is about cats & the V E T.

Thomas, isn't bothered. He will actually get in his carry box by himself and likes a cuddle from the V E T - he must be a bit muddled bless him.

Pablo hates his carry box. He is so scared it's really sad, it takes two of us to man handle him into his box.

Anyway enough of my rambling.

Have a great day.

Hugs
Penni

Poor Alfie, but I'm pleased he is better and its only a check-up this time. They pick up our stress signals and know something is up... and you must be sending out heaps at the moment with VET visits and packing... which is why the Zit Fairy keeps visiting!!
Love all your beautiful treasures above your desk... how wonderful to glance up and see them all when you are working!!

Kaz said...

Keeping eveerything crossed for Alfie's fangs.
Fancy you drawing our attention to Tim! And two photos with him is just greedy. I think the crafty stuff needs to be packed last at the same time as the kettle xxx

Shazza said...

oooh I want to come and play in there Hels

craftimamma said...

Wow, Hels, your cork board is crammed full of loveliness. I shall be back later (much later after my little granddaughter goes home) to look at the enlargement in detail.

Good luck fishing Alfie out from under the bed!

Hugs

Karen said...

oooo I LOVE your wall Hels!!!!! Its so full of goodies I could spend ages looking at it. Have to laugh at Alfie...I would like to know how they know too hahaha

Awe, I don't envy you having to pack up your stash. It means you could be days without it :( HUGS XXX

Dan said...

I wish my desk was as tidy, I'm still to scared to show pics of it! LOL

Wipso said...

Really love your board with all those crafty inspirations on. I'd really love one but have little wall space left here to put one up :-)
Thanks for your suggestions for the Bridal challenge too...they are some really lovely ideas. Thanks.

Helen said...

Ooh I love that cork board. Your desk looks good to me. Not surprised you can't bear to pack up!

Thanks for dropping by my space -
You bet I will be at Ally Pally on Saturday - stalking Linda and Lin for most of it, I suspect. How 'bout you? Are you demoing for Jennie again?

Artyjen said...

Kathy said...

Great shots today, Hels - O feel for you, packing up your stash - it brought back memories of how sad my craft stuff looked once the packers had boxed and taped it all up ready for our last house move.

I love your cork board, what a feast of memories and treasures

Cardarian said...

So much interesting stuff on your desk - always fun to have a snoop...your cork board is amazing!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Ah yes I remember Tracey (Cardmaker) she was a lovely lady, though I never actually met her - she was a member of birthday list 14 which is still going strong though slightly less than half the original members. So pleased to see my little birdie there hun - yahoo!
I dont envy you all the packing, just keep envisioning your new craft room at the end of it all :)

Julia Dunnit said...

God I hate packing. But I hate unpacking more. When you get hold of that fairy, find out where her sister, bad back fairy is - I have a noose to go around that particular neck!! Your cork board is an isnpiration. Lots of birds.

Twiglet said...

Carmen said...

I loves your board I does, so many lovely things to look at. Love the yawning moggie piccie.

And cats... they just know. EVERYTHING!

Angie said...

your cork board is wonderful .... friends and their art ..at arms length and within eye view.
Some cats really pick up on vet visits ...I actually have to spell infront of one or two and once caught the scene resembles a Garfield cartoon ...while others crawl into the box ...curl up and wait to be transported????

Heidi said...

oh cool! I want to know what are the little wooden stamps that hang just to the right there....... are they sponges from TH?

Cher~ said...

What a great inspiration area over your desk with all those great works of art from fellow crafters. You are so very lucky.

Mummylade said...

You probably thought about the vet and that's enough, I know cause I have two cats myself. I can't even write vet or clawclipping on a piece of paper... they're just gone!

Rosie said...

Oh I DO sympathise! I would leave it till the absolute last minute (ie an hour before moving) to pack my craft stuff!!

Vicky said...

Hi Hel's....
I feel way to embarraced to come and visit you...your so many moon's infront of me...Way too talented for me to have a CAT'S chance...

Loved your pic's and creations on your wall board....I spotted the one and only TH...OMG he's only been in my crafty life a short time...you know the saying "dipping your feet " well that's how I feel about him...To be honest I am way too scared of taking the plunge and furthering my ability's... I know I will fall flat on my face...

Hope your getting sorted for your move, take care for now and thank's for all the encouragment, your a star!!!

DonnaMundinger said...

Poor Alfie. My cats hate the vet almost as much as I hate the Dr.! So glad it's just a post op checkup. What fab stuff you have in your room. I'd love to come over and just poke around. Very inspiring. I sure don't envy you the packing, though. xxD

Spyder said...

oh wowo fabby things going on in your crafty space!! (Lyn)
