WOYWW... Good Intentions...

...mmm, I was full of those last Wednesday... you know, "I will get around to all the desks and all that"... mmm, turns out that I got around to about a third of them and then... you will never believe this... AlfieCat stole my laptop!!! He did!!! So that meant that I couldn't get online and when he did eventually let me have it back he had bamboozled (don't you just love that word!!) it and I couldn't get onto any blogs (...although I could get on here ROFL) Ah well, it was worth a punt at giving excuses but the truth is... I ran out of time!




Anyways... I took a photo of my desk yesterday... eeek, if you are of a nervous dispo-wotsit, look away cos it is not pretty... however, it was fruitful indeedily because I was half way through making a book that I started at the weekend as the main project that Ellen and I were doing... the book covers are ancient... and come from Delaware! The path to the desk was stacked with Studio 490 stamps - those are the stamps I was using in the book... along with Art Parts too... which I have some of the new ones... they are ... perfect! And the Clearly for Art BlackOut...even more perfect!!!



So... it is Wednesday ... time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday which is a blogwide phenomenon that means that we can all have a little snoop into each others crafty places... to see all the deets and all the entrants, please click HERE to go and see Julia who is Head Desk Hopper Extraordinaire. Here is the desk now the project is completed and I have been halo polishing and tidying away again!!



Oooh and while I think about it... thank you for all the lovely concerned comments regarding "Henry the Zit"... he is still here, lurking... but... last night I had a little bit of a tiff with him, gave him a squeeze and out shot a load of gunk and he is marginally better...still the size of a small country but not quite so mountainous... I just know you all wanted to know that ROFL Hope I haven't put you off your cornflakes too (ooh, I am making myself laugh now... that is sad!!!) Right, time for me to go and visit some desks!!! Thanks for looking... TTFN!

Good grief Hels, you did have a major tidy up!! Love the book it looks lush - and the bag of minstrels? They seem to have disappeared along with the mess and been replaced with a can of Coke... can't get Minstrels here...have to eat Smarties instead!!

..the path ws stacked...

yes I know that scenario, and of course on the way to the desk one gets understandably sidetracked and one simply must spend time meandering that path - it is no wonder the time escapes us ...
