WOYWW... AlfieCat Takes Over...& Some Texture

...cor blimey O'Reilly, where on Earth has the last week whizzed off to??? Anyone else suffering with FastForward Syndrome where it seems like only yesterday that it was last week??? *except on a Sunday of course, when yesterday would be last week ROFL* Anyways... today is Wednesday which means that the loyal and faithful followers of The Leader of The Desk Hoppers, also known as Mrs Julia Dunnit... hop all around the globe, looking at each others workspaces and on many occasions, furry friends...if you are stumped and wonder what I am waffling on about today, click HERE to see Julia's blog, the deets are all on there... and the hop commences!




First of all... I made a big mistake made yesterday... I spent a couple of hours lounging on the new sofa *and whizzing backwards and forwards on the recliner - but don't tell Grim* and in my absence a certain little black n white furry fluff literally booted me out of my room of stash! Indeedily, AlfieCat has commandeered my chair and desk and even did a spot of reading - that old book that I tore up to use for art has been entertaining him all evening *actually, that is a fib but it makes him sound really intelligent LOL*




So, my desk looks pretty much the same as any other week... so I thought I would pop a piccie of one of my drawers on... and no, I am not going to lower the tone by showing a photo of my pants... the computer screen ain't big enough for that anyway LOL... inside this particular drawer is a little stash of Embossing Powders... some of them are the original first ones I ever bought over 7 years ago! Others are recent additions... the UTEE especially - I loooove UTEE loads and loads and the new orange and red ones have already been earmarked for a project that is still inside my head :O))




I am posting this early today as I am off on my travels... letting the train take the strain and all that... I am going to actually inspect Jennie's desk - to tell you the truth, I think someone kidnapped the real Jennie cos that desk of hers has been waaaay too tidy this past few weeks... I shall remedy that... I am going to put my messy head on and go in and leave it looking really untidy *mind, you, if Jennie reads this before I get there, chances are she won't answer the door ROFL* Oh, yes, the piece of art that is just above this waffle is my DT thing for the Fiskarettes which is showing today... I used some Terra and a ShapeBoss! I know... you wouldn't expect to hear those two products mentioned together but... to see how I did it... please click HERE... oh and I would loooove it if you could leave me a comment on there too... let me know whatcha fink and all that! Anyways... I shall bid you a goodly day and say... thanks for looking... reading... staying til the end *well if you haven't stayed til the end of these waffly words then you won't know I am saying thank you but... oh dear, I am off on a tangent again ROFL* And.. cos I am out all day I may be late in visiting you *I am leaving AlfieCat in charge of Grim...or is the other way round LOL* ... like I probably won't get around at all today so...Til tomorrow... TTFN!

Hi Hels,

Alfie may produce that Masterpiece today, or he may just think about it and snooze a while, either way, your seat will be warm on your return, really liek the colours on yoru tab and I have a 'thing' about shabby chic paper flowers layered up and buttoned, just super, I particularly like using origami papers - a) because they have wonderous patterns and b) they are a paper weight just a couple up from tissue, but thin enough to slightly 'flop' - shall check out the link at the weekend and have a go

Helen said...

That is lovely and now I'm thinking I might have to fish out my fiskars stuff which is tucked away somewhere. I love UTEE too but never get around to using my melt pot. That cat is gorgeous-give him a stroke from me. Hugs BettyXXX

Happy WOYWW

Alix said...

have fun with jennie...and love your project :0)

Lori said...

Hope you had fun with Jennie, I'm sure together you guys are a real hoot! Lovely little project there, and I love the UTEE too, just don't use it as much as I would like.

Darcy said...

love the project, the flower is gorgeous. I do think it will be Alfie in charge, he looks like he is on Mastermind in that chair...wonder what his chosen specialist subject will be?

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah Hels, hope you and Jen have had a lovely day - I wonder how much you actually did though?!! I love that Alfie thinks that chair is now his - you'll be soft enough to craft standing up now!

Sid said...

Hope the day went well, love the project and great storage solutions.

The Crafty Goat Girl said...

Great to see Alfie in full flow, lol! I love a good waffle, I spend my life doing just that according to my hubs, lol!

Great desk Hels, have a good trip!

Hugs Heidi xx

FlipSyde said...

Tracy Evans said...

Only just got back myself 8.30pm after going to Tatton Show to purchase more plants LOL. Hope you had a fab day at Jennie's and did not leave too much mess. Love your artwork for the Fiskarettes. Very tidy desk again this week too. Tracy Evans x

Foil Play said...

Alfie cat looks well settled in! Your project is beautiful - hope you had a lovely day :-)

Becky H said...

My kitty does that too. Except he likes to be ON the desk in the middle of the ink. Literally. I have had to wipe off inky paws more than once! Gotta love 'em! I really enjoy your wafflings, so please, waffle on!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

LOL, love your art and wow, what a stash! off to check out your other post

Wipso said...

Sorry I'm rather late calling in this week. My day was really manic yesterday and had to end with a 62mile round journey to visit my neighbour in hospital.
Thanks for a giggle. I have a feeling Alfie thinks he's crafting instead of you :-)

angeleef said...

Sam said...

Ooooo a recliner hmmm bliss. If we had recliners I dont think we'd sleep in our bed for a few months somehow...we'd just dose off in the front room while watching the gogglebox hehehe. Love the puddytat bless him - mine have given up trying to sleep on my table (they can't find anywhere to lie down anymore hehehehe)

Angie said...

Really enjoy your posts ...and that'enjoy the journey' is brilliant

JoZart said...

Really love the black furry texture. Does it come bottled? Loved snooping round your desk full of yumminess.

Sunshine Girl said...

Lovely DT project there and hope you had fun playing on Weds! I too have a box of embossing powders like that - hasnt the packaging changed nowadays - also didnt know that UTEE came in such fab colours and am now wishing I didnt know as I now need some for my melt pot!

chrissy xx said...

Loved your 'Waffle' Alfie has really taken over! Must post a pic of my dog, she has a habit of turning up as well.
Chrissyxx

Lynne said...

We have Alfiedog and he likes to get in on the act too. Last night he licked the photos waiting to be put in a word book! Whats that all about?? Loving all those embossing powders and I have some older than that, wonder if they will still work! Sorry to be so late getting round. Lynne x

Dallying Debz said...

He He, I would have thought by now you would have understood that you are merely the house slave and therefore Alfie can sit where he likes. I also fight for the right to sit in my craft room.

Alfie must be way more intelligent than my monster though as he eats the paper, rather than read it.

Great idea to use a shape boss. Have some of those hanging around somewhere.

Chrissie said...

Great snoop and lovely project. Your cat looks extremely noble too!
Sorry about my tardy visit, but I've been slightly hors de combat since Wednesday.
Have a great weekend.
Chrissie
