WOYWW... Showing Some Lurve...

...blimey, big fat blimey's... so, go on, was it you? Did you press that fast forward button last Wednesday??? I don't know about you but I just can't seem to keep up with how fast the days are whizzing past... anyways, here I am ... with a big apology for not managing to get to a lot of the desks last week, thing is, I was full of good intentions and then the dog ate my homework, the alarm didn't go off, I missed the bus and then I couldn't find my shoe LOL Sad, pathetic, I know but... really I haven't got an excuse! Anyways... this week I am going to do better... really, I am :O)) If you are new to this blogging lark and you are wondering what on earth I am waffling on about... well, it is Wednesday which means that it is time for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... devised and hosted by the inimitable Chief Desk Inspector Extraordinaire, Mrs Julia Dunnit... if you click on her name you will be whizzed off on a magic chair to see the list of peeps who are joining in.



Today there are two pic... Desk 1 which is my desk that I use all the time has a few projects on it that are for my monthly swap with Ellen... oh and speaking of Ellen... did I mention that she is coming over to see me... TOMORROW!!! How exciting!!! So, the next pic is of Desk 2 which is where Ellen will be sitting when we are making a mess, I mean crafting, together this coming weekend.



Oh and on the desk is THE BAG... which is the bag that transported some goodies to me last time Ellen visited... and I have snaffled it away and have popped a few goodies in there for her this time... a couple of made pieces and some other bits and bobs. Ellen is due to land at Heathrow tomorrow morning... and yes, this time I am going to be there... I was toying with the idea of setting off when her plane takes off from Baltimore, there would be no way I would be late arriving then... but... then I thought again and to be honest, I don't fancy a night sleeping in an airport, so I am trusting good old British public transport... and I will be there early....I will!!



Oh and... another piccie... did you know that the Stampotique Designers have a challenge?? Well, all the deets about the current challenge are HERE... and there are some gorgeous pieces of art by the design team... well worth a look... this is my entry... and it is also the card I gave to Grim for Valentines Day... aren't Twinkie and Marci sweet together?? They make such a lovely couple! Right, things to do, places to go... oh and ... yes, blogs to visit... I will do better this week ... promise... thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN
