WOYWW... Two For One...

...Cor Blimey!!! It is Wednesday already and my brain is still way back in Monday! Pathetic excuse time now, I still haven't tidied up - I know, I know, I promised that I would be good and sort out all the erm... crud... from my desk... and I haven't, I have just added to it! On desk #1 is a WIP using Stampotique and Distress Inks to make a card... no doubt it will be here soon :O)) Oh and... apologies for the angle of the pic - this is cos there is soooooo much stash on the floor surrounding said desk and behind my chair, I can't actually get in front of it unless I stand on the chair and ...knowing my propensity for falling down, I didn't think that was such a good idea! *thank you, BTW, for all your lovely messages and comments regarding me taking the invisible stair lift the other day - still got a sore bum but it is better than it was... and... funny or what? That lump in my neck... gone! So, next time it appears I will have to hurl myself down a flight of stairs to get rid of it ROFL*




I have also been adding a generous layer of... erm... stuff, to desk #2 which is just not good enough, I know. I have to get it all sorted but... I have realised why I am having such a bother with it... it is because... my desk #1 isn't big enough - so, I have to get out all my stash and heap it up on the other desk and then on the floor and then I .. erm... *scratches head, thinking quickly for excuses* and then I am working in such a small space that I need to go and rest instead of tidying away. I could have said that the dog ate my homework or I missed the bus but neither of those excuses would have really been relevant... so yep, it is cos my desk is way too small! *does that sound like a goodly excuse??? Have I got away with it for another week???* Ooooo, I just noticed... three of the Tree Decorations for my class at The Stamp Attic next Weds are there... and, if my memory serves me well, we have a couple of spaces left, so if you fancy making your own custom decorations and getting inky and messy with me, please CLICK HERE for the booking deets :O))




Anyways... all this waffling about desks and excuses and such like is cos it is indeed Wednesday and therefore, the Leader of the Department for Desk Maintenance, otherwise known as the lovely Julia, will have the WOYWW linky thingy and all the deets ready for you to read on her blog... actually, I am posting this at stoopid o'clock cos I am waiting for Grim to come home from work, so my bet is that Julia will be posting it all in the morning... try anyway, you never know :O)) So what have you got planned for today? I am in a state of anticipation... Grim is taking me to the flicks tonight and we are going to Nando's after so I can stuff my chops full of super strength Peri Peri chicken... I think we are going to see Red (gratuitous shots of Mr Willis for me and Ms Mirren for Grim ROFL) Have a FAB day! Thanks for looking... TTFN

Val said...

Hi Hels
Can't you sleep either!
You should see my desk - I am down to a space the size of my craft mat, so I think before I do anything in the morning I am going to have to move stuff. Where to? Don't know!
See you again soon.
Hugs

Helen said...

Lovely desk again, and some fab work as always.

Chrissie said...

Desk not as messy as mine! Loved your journal book in mag. Have done my own version doing spine slightly different. Made large and used Tims edges making it wrap over to front and back a bit. Just love all your work Chrissie

Joanne said...

I love your excuses for being untidy. How much do you charge for coming up with excuses for me not to do housework? I'll pay well. Love Stampotique so waiting eagerly to see that card.
Luv Joanne xx

craftimamma said...

I am absolutely green with envy!!! All those fab Stampotique stamps and the Mrs V ones I keep spying under your desk! I want, I want, I want................., Lol!

Love the works in progress Hels and what I wouldn't give to get inky and messy at one of your classes but I live too far away, Boo Hoo!

Hugs

Love the Stampotique card on your desk and the Christmas decorations look fabulous. I don't think your desk is too bad at all. Enjoy the flicks and your meal. Tracy Evans x

Sarah Anderson said...

Apparently it's the dark that's making the desks look untidy - so says the queen of desks anyway! Fab stampotique piece I spy there!!

voodoo vixen said...

Morning Hels... well, it is where I am, whilst you are probably now out at the flicks drooling over Mel!! I have had a light bulb moment... craft mess expands to fill the available space - which explains why you have two messy desks!! The Christmas decs look lovely and I would love to be able to a messy inky class with you... shame about the cost of flights and time difference! :(

Honestly I don't visit for over a week, and then find out that you flung yourself down the stairs for attention.

Sending over cyber rubs (not in any creepy way you understand) and an ice pack for the bruising.

Doone said...

blimmin doo dars Hels _ most people see a chiropractor - it's a bit extreme to use gravity and body weight ... do hope you Are Okay...

Sherry Goodloe said...

Sure wish I could surprise you and come to that class *smiles*

Pam said...

Oh my Hels Sheridan! I see plenty of room available for a bigger desk - perhaps in front of the stairway?

WOYWW #2!

jude said...

Your desk looks tidy compared to the stae of mine and the craft room.
Have nice night and fab WOYWW

Aha, ok then, the desk is too small? Really, ok, if you say so!! Seems like that fall down the stairs hasn't knocked any sense into you!!! Although I must admit that until I clicked on the photo I thought that clasp of ATC's (or tags perhaps?) was an Indian headdress!!!

A bit late in visiting desks this week - sorry! Hope your aches and pains are better and that you enjoyed you meal and film. Your desk looks busy as always!!

Cardmaking Galore said...

A messy desk means its in use - that's what's it for. A door to close everything behind works magic, thought

Chrissie said...

Enjoyed your post... as ever, glad the lump has gone... but the supposed cure was a little dramatic!
Your desk looks fab and I wish I wasn't quite so far away 'cos I really fancy one of your classes... maybe one day I'll bite the bullet and come!

What a busy but very productive looking desk. Some lovely pieces of artwork here. Thanks for sharing your workspace. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 36)

Morti said...

I think you owe it to us loyal WOYWWers to show us a gratuitous floor shot. And I'm with Doone - DIY physio is NOT really a good idea, no matter how frugal ya wanna be! LOL - glad to hear you're a bit better....

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. As always I get so entertained by your posts. I can only hope you are better soon. As a fellow back sufferer, I understand the self help method. See you again tomorrow.

i'm here too early for this week's WOYWW but just thought i'd drop a line to say hello!
