WOYWW... Bitten...

...tis Wednesday already indeedily, which means it is time for the bloggers of the Crafty Blogasphere to show off their workspaces, desks, floors, messes, tidynesses... because it is time for the phenomenon that is... What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... devised and hosted by Mrs Julia Dunnit.. you can see deets on how to participate (cor blimey, that is a big word for this time of a morning!) HERE. So... my desk is a right state. There are three WIPs on there... a tag book I started yesterday but had to stop (more about that later), a tag that I started yesterday (but had to stop... more about that again later...) and under that pile of papers is a shadow box that I started 281 years ago and still haven't finished it. Under my desk are my coveted Studio 490 stamps... you know, those fave stamps of mine from the amazing designer that is Wonderful Wendy Vecchi. Also on my desk is a big jar of mucky water... and it is the same one from last week... I know, I am a lazy moo. Also on my desk are those new Seasonal Distress Inks which are gorgeous... and my Distress Inks and Stains which are all colour coded and in colour order... I have to have them like that... I also have all my blending tools in the right order too... yikes, I am admitting my inner OCD there lol



Anyways... the BITTEN bit of the title..... well, I got bit. I don't know what it was... whatever it was it was very obviously dirty and manky and has made me proper poorly... which is why all the things on my desk are WIPs because I felt to ickky yesterday I kept starting stuff and then losing the old Mojo. The beastly critter bit me on the tummy - which is all red and itching but no where near as bad as the other place he gnashed me... which is at the top of my left arm... round the back so I can't see it properly. But, believe me, I have looked in the mirror and it ain't pretty. It is all swollen, sticking out like an orange, weeping yellow stuff and oh boy, it is so painful. I have been switching between hot and cold... been upset in the tummy dept (shalln't get graphic lol) and finally when I felt up to eating last night, I honked the lot back. So... job #1 for today is to get an appt with the Doc... hopefully he will be able to chop it off or something. Honestly, why do bugs seem to like gnashing me huh? And... why do I always react so badly? Anyways... enough of me whinging... tis time for me to get myself back to bed... I am in need of more sleep... goodness knows why because I spent about 83 hours asleep yesterday! Thanks for looking.. please do bear with, I will try to get to see you at some point... TTFN

Sorry you are poorly hels... maybe you need to take antihistamines when bugs bite you? You certainly don't seem to react very well to them!!

Electra said...

My gosh, what kind of bugs do you have there-747's?? I love how organized you are with your inks and tools. You would shudder to see mine.

jude said...

You know, both dh and I got bit by critters overnight in the last few days as well. I hate not having screens on the windows, but love having the windows open. No win situation there. But dearie me yours sound quite serious. get thee to a dr. Indeed! Funnily, back when I played soccer, we always had sprinkle on meat tenderiser in the first aid kit - it worked to draw out the stuff in bee stings and mosquito bites. I think it was basically MSG, but it worked. Do hope you feel better soon.

Vic said...

Poor thing! I hope you're better soon.

RosA said...

Eeeekkk! Get to the doctor, quick smart! (I would self-diagnose the need for antihistamines, but it sounds like the doc should be the one to do that!) Hope you can get back to your desk real soon!

Helen said...

Yikes, that sounds proper nasty! Hope you get it sorted and are back to "normal" soon.... it's nearly time for your trip to the States after all!

Marjo said...

Yikes, I at least know what bit and stung me...a nasty Yellow Jacket. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for the peek and sharing your workspace.

Sunshine Girl said...

Oooh hope you are feeling better soon and the doctor can sort you out. I too have a canvas I have been working on for 281 years! fancy that, and I also store all my distress inks and blenders in colour order too - I dont like to think its OCD though just "been organised gives me more time to craft rather than rummage for stuff" (yeah right like that really happens!!). Hope your day is better and I am rather envious of the new distress inks - havent got those yet and not sure whether I am going too... let me know how you get on with them.

Doone said...

get weller soonest Hels, and I have only been to two other desks so far and they are both in a worse state than yours, so rest assured, your mess is comparatively tidy this week...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

My dear old mum always to used to put neat vinegar on my bites when I was a nipper - stung like **?!?!*^ Hope you feel better soon xx

Kate said...

How on earth did you manage that, have you been on a trip up the Amazon that you haven't told us about? Take care.

** Kate **

Cathy said...

Oh no, hope you feel better soon, Hels, sounds like a nasty bit. Looking at the size of our spiders, I can imagine the size of the bug that bit you!!!
Love your desk.
Hugs
Cathy xx

peggy aplSEEDS said...

i hope you will feel better soon. with all that and you can still manage to be so funny! 281 years indeed! LOL!

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Gosh hope that you haven't got the lurgy that is doing the rounds to. It seems that insects like everything else are getting nastier. Hope the docs can right you up soon and meanwhile more resting!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh poor Hels..al this form being bitten. MG, you need a course of something. You sure it isn't becuase you've been mistaking the mucky water for a cuppa? Feel better soon.

Joanne said...

It seems there are mosquitos in the country. Not sure they bite like that but would make you feel very poorly. Having said that, I have to avoid wasps because i will be really poorly if I get stung. Hope the doc sorts you quick.
Hugs Joanne xx

Ann B said...

Bite sounds very nasty Hels so hope the Doc is able to sort you out quickly and you can get back to your busy workspace - especially as I'm itching to see your finished WIPs - looking very good.

Angie said...

Those bites sound nasty ...I wonder what got you ...horseflies can do that.

As for your desk ...I love what is going on to the right ...and the middle ...I think i need some of those giant tags.lol ...wish I could have made it all even bigger so I could have a better nose.xx

Shoshi said...

Awww Hels... so sorry to hear you've been bitten so badly and suffering. Let's hope the doc can sort you out. You must be tastier than me - they devour my hubby too but always leave me alone! Re your workdesk - at least you can see the surface of it, peeping out between your activities! Looking forward to seeing the result of your labours. I've had a really busy and fun week with lots to report on my blog, and having such fun! Happy WOYWW.

Alison Horne said...

Oh no! You still feel icky? Hope the quack has sorted you out now! Sadly Brad Pitt did not join me last night - stop hogging him! You are so selfish! Surely it's my turn now?!!!

Joni Nickrent said...

fairyrocks said...

Yikes feel better soon, maybe see the doc about your bites. Sounds like quite a terrible reaction.
Your desk looks so handy, love the heat tool just hanging around waiting for you.
Till next week then take care of you!!

Darcy said...

eeek that gnashing critter doesn't sound like the friendly sort at all, hope you are fighting fit soonly. So,so jealous of your new ink pads.x

KatzElbows said...

Sorry you're not feeling good, especially as the bite is clearly making you delirious. You mentioned a messy desk, but yours seems very tidy to me!

Get well soon.

Gillian .... said...

Oh nooooo hun, hope you get something from the doc to sort the nasty bite out, lots of rest, cos I'm coming to visit you and the room of stash (v.excited) ... your OCD will be best friends with mine, like the organisation of the distress goodies. Take care, speak soon:) xxx

Anne said...

Sorry to read you are poorly. You look very organised - I like to be but sometimes doesn't work. Hope you better soon. Anne x

JoZart said...

Having been painfully bitten recently and having to pick out the blood sucking whatever it was, I fully sympathise. Hope you are OK soon but get to the doc pdq.
Your "messy" desk looks extremely tidy to me no probs with that.
Take care,
Lv JoZarty x

The Crafty Elf said...

That's nasty!!! I was bitten earlier in the summer and I was left with a "bite" mark about the size of a soft ball and I still have a mark. That was almost 4 months ago!!! I have a friend with the same problem!!! I'm scared! What's out there these days???? I hope you are better soon!

pat said...

Hope you get rid of that bug soon. Some good supplies waiting for you.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I got a late start yesterday because I fell asleep before I could link up with Julia. Now I'm just trying to catch up. It sounds like a spider to me. All red and swollen. Had it happen to me once and I agree that it's very painful. Hope you get better soon. BTW, I'm 42 this week.

Tertia said...

That does not sound good at all, you get your b off to the dr IMMEDIATELY young lady!
The desk is super neat and very interesting. Wish I had more time to snoop, I am sure I missed something awesome.
Get better soon.
Happy WOYWW

SueH said...

Oh Helen, I feel for you hun because I always get bad reaction to insect bites.

Get some Bach’s Rescue Remedy on it. A lady told me about it when I was in Canada a few years back when I had mosie bites all over me and I ended up with what looked like a cauliflower ear…..not a good holiday look!
Anyway she gave me some Bach’s Rescue Remedy to put on it and within fifteen mins all the redness had started to die down and it was way less itchy. I swear by it now.

Still, it’s such a shame that it’s keeping you from your craft desk but I’ve just seen the finished tag in the next post and have to say, if you can create something as beautiful when you’re feeling less than 100% then you’ve nothing much to worry about.

Thanks for stopping by my blog this week and I hope you’re feeling better soon.
Happy Crafting!

Sue

MaggieC said...

That tip about the Bach Flower Remedy sounds good. I have also been told that if you eat Marmite, the mozzies leave you alone. I have suffered badly from these beasties all my life until this last 12 months. I have been taking a non-drowsy anti-histamine each day, all through the year, and it has seemed to work. Get yourself to the doctor for anti-biotics, anti-histamines and painkillers, before it gets spread throughout your system. Hope you soon feel better.

fairy thoughts said...

sorry to hear you're poorly i hope you got the little blighter and you get your mojo back soon and finish those tags.

karen said...

Oh dear, I hope you get this seen to and all fixed up, it sounds nasty!
Yikes what is up with bugs lately!
xoxo Karen

Morti said...

oooh hun, not good! Sounds very much like a horsefly bite (and I think the tummy one is a different beastie to make it even worse). Sending you sympathetic hugs!

Ali said...

Ooh jeepers! I'm late making the WOYWW rounds this week so I hope to goodness that you are feeling much better by now and re-mojo-vated! :)
