WOYWW.... Eeeeek

...Oopsie-daisies... I have a confession... for the last few months I have been smug... showing off my incredibly neat and tidy desk space and snorting when thinking about my old, messy ways... And it hasn't gone unnoticed that several peeps have suggested that I have been doctoring my photo's in PhotoShop... as if I could even begin to know how to use that, let alone fiddle with evidence... plus the fact, I use Paint Shop Pro rofl. So... the waffling today is regarding the most amazing phenomenon that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Devised and hosted by the one and only, nay and thrice, the very one and very only, Julia Dunnit. Click on her name to be transported across the Blogasphere on the back of a giant bottle of Wild Honey Distress Stains... and you can join in too.




Right then, confession time... are you sitting comfortably? I may be some time! (talk about mixing cliches) Anyways... I was full of goodly intentions on January 1st this year. No more messy Room of Trash, promises of putting away everything before starting a new project... and apart from a minor wobble in the month of March, I have stuck to my resolution. I have even taken to cleaning **sorry, I had toyed with the idea of using the H word and figured that it would leave a fair few of you in shock to I use the C word (noooo, not that one!) instead** Well since last Wednesday things have been afoot in the Room of Stash and I have thrown myself wholeheartedly into getting ready for going away. **more of that later... don't groan, I won't bang on relentlessly about it** I have had several projects to get completed and sorted and done and off the list. And for some incredibly stooopid reason, I forgot my New Year Resolution and ... well, frankly, I am ashamed to admit that there is now a very thin path into the Room of Stash and the floor is littered with... stuff! Desk 2 is not much better, although it is holding my carry on bag so that takes up a very lot of room making it look worse. So, my very dear and incredibly lovely (creepcreep) bloggy friends... can I be forgiven for such indiscretions? Am I going to get away with this lapse into my sluttish old ways? I do promise that I will tidy the desk before I go to bed tonight... I will ... honest!!


Anyways... today is my very last day on the Stampotique Design Team... it has been wonderful to be part of this team, working alongside very talented designers who's stamps make it so easy to work with. There is a new challenge HERE - which is a sketch, I do love a good sketch!! For this card I used some yummy Stampotique stamps and Distress Inks... if you fancy a little stashly purchasing and want to own some Stampotique stamps, they are HERE at The Stamp Attic :O)




So................... well, I wasn't going to mention that this time tomorrow I will be waiting, patiently *and ever so nervously* at Heathrow airport. I am sure I have muttered a few times in the last few weeks that I am going to America to Ranger U and to see Ellen... well, the day is almost here! For one, I am beyond excited now... like fizzes and shivers of anticipations... and butterflies that are mahoosive... and I am ever so slightly scared stiff that I will be embarking on this awfully big adventure on my tod! I know I have been waffling on about packing my case... and... I have just started! Well, teckernically, that is a bit of a fib, I haven't started actually putting stuff into it yet... but Grim has opened it up and lifted it up onto the bed for me. And... after I have finished waffling I will be going to do it... well, after I have had a coffee and defluffed the tumble drier and descaled the kettle and degunked that slidey drawer in the washing machine that always collects fabric softener no matter how many times it gets wiped clean... Ahaha, just kidding... am doing it now... I am multi-tasking!! ROFL Right, if you are still here... thanks for reading to the end... have a fabby day... TTFN!

What a stunning card for the Stampotique challenge. Waiting patiently at Heathrow, eh? Not sure they can cope with you bouncing up and down in excitement, lol!!

Joanne said...

I'm sorry you have just made your last Stampotique project, they are my ultimate favourite stamps and I love your work so the partnership - for me - will be sadly missed. But I'm so very excited for you and will think about you every day you are in the US of A. Have a ball girl and don't forget to write.
Big Hugs
