WOYWW.... A Whole Lotta...

...nothing much!! Hahaaaa, again, it is Wednesday and yep, I remembered it was Wednesday which means that I can take part in the phenomenononywotsit that is.... What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (....mmm, wonders how many times I can throw "Wednesday" into the first paragraph!) So... this WOYWW (as the acronym is easier than keeping on typing What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, although I just did again so....) Where was I? Ah yes, Wednesday's are the day for WOYWW. Now, if you haven't stumbled across this amazing weekly event, you can CLICK HERE and be whizzed off on the back of a humungous raindrop to see Julia, who is the creator of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday, and see how to join in, what to do etc... and as you wend your way around the blogs in the mahoosive hop, you can pick up hints and tips on how to make your room reaaaaally messy (oooh, who do I mean Helen?) or you can see how a neat freak like me works (ok, ok, those of you who have borne witness to the perils of the Room of Stash will know full well that this prolonged smugness from yours truly is bound to come to a halt sooner or later, I mean, hello? Me? Tidy? I don't think it is going to last!!) Right... enough waffling... that there is a piccie of my desk... and I have to say, a little update after the mammoth 2 day clearing out fest that was the event in the Room of Stash for January... my desks are still *relatively* tidy... as is the floor (i even hoovered the other day!) and I am loving having both desks right next to each other because I can spread out... well, not me personally, my stash can be spread out and I don't need to chuck stuff on the floor anymore... *ah, am polishing my halo* So, this week on my desk is... some Tulle! Oh yesh, I have finally sourced some cheap Tulle (thank you Mr eBay) which I fully intend to faff with later. Also is a WIP - an ATC with a cute little holder that is a Cut & Create template from March Craft Stamper... that is going to be finished today btw... no more procrastinations... I am going to sit and get it done...



Before I nip off to get inky, I will just point in the direction of the sidebar where there's a link to my latest giveaway... which is a tag... and if you click HERE you can be whizzed off on the back of a ... oh, hang on, I done that already... ok, if you clicked there, you will already be on the right post to leave a comment on... And that there piccie is the tag :O))


Before I nip off to get inky... ok, so there's a lot of repitition in this post today .. blame it on the sun! We had a smashing day at Brands Hatch on Sunday, watching Jason Plato storm to victory in his new MG (corrrrrr) but, it was ever so sunny... and guess who forgot to put any sun cream in her bag? And guess who is now sporting something that she usually takes great pains to avoid? Oh yes, I have... a freckle moustache. I am a freckly person... always have been, in fact a childhood nickname was freckleface... and I have freckles on my top lip... which, if left unattended in the sunshine, gang up together and turn themselves into a moustache... which is what I have now... Hercule Poirrot has got nothing on me I can tell ya.... with that delightful image, I shall bid you adieu and say... as ever... thanks for looking!! TTFN

Wow! LOVE your craft room...all those wooden stamps just waiting to be used! Great tag too :)

Buttons said...

Glad you enjoyed the touring cars on Sunday Hels. Just as well this snow hadn't hit, though Jason and one or two others could have used that as an excuse for playing bumper cars!!

Hubbie was glued to it - in a house full of motor-mad men we usually have touring cars, F1 or Top Gear on the box. Wonder why we have a second telly?!

Currently beavering away creating 'the blog', marking work, preping for next term, making cake... a woman's work is never done! However (she says proudly) my challenge piece is done and should be the first proper post by the weekend. Crossing fingers, though that doesn't help much with the typing.

Hope you enjoy playing with the tulle and looking forward to seeing the results.
Hugs, Buttons x

Artyjen said...

You will just have to try and get more freckles so that they can all join up and you have a lovely tan! LOL
That's what I always hope for anyway!

Joanne said...

Well, apart from lots of lovliness I spy a dish of sweeties. Chuck us one please. I saw that JP won on Sunday. He's almost unbeatable. Wish I could have a go. Did I tell you I got held up by a Ferrari once then again by a Maseratti... it's true, honestly, in my CUB too.
Hugs Joanne xx

Redanne said...

Great work area Hels (I mean freckleface!), it always looks so tidy in spite of the amount of stuff you produce.....intrigued to know what you are going to do with that tulle. Not doing WOYWW as Central heating is bust and it is too cold to sit here for too long.

Helen said...

Hmmm I hope I'm not the Helen you are telling all and sundry I can teach messy to.... ha ha. As if...
I saw the result of the race and thought of you. Wish I hadn't now! Your desks look great though, long may you keep them clean and neat - in between inky! Helen,18

Rita said...

Super Dooper work-space Hels. Come on Girl, get into the messy stuff right away. I thought thats what our crafty space was for. Have a Great Easter. Hugs Rita xx

Barb Cady said...

Really impressed with the general state of order ness that is your room Hels! Glad you both had a good day at Brands Hatch. Have a lovely Easter the pair of you xx

Twiglet said...

Just chuckling at the thought of sunshine and freckles - Such a cold snowy day here - I have been happily sewing and watching the snowflakes fall.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Very interesting; I've learned another Brit expression. Can't wait to see what it means to "faff the tulle!"

Darnell J Knauss said...

Forgot - I'm #141.

Lizzybobs said...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I know that tulle is headed for a grown-up's ballet tutu :) Don't protest, it's well known in blogland that you're a secret Darcey Bussell *grin*
Hugs, LLJ #7 who is also a freckle fiend - the bane of my life..... xx

MaggieC said...

It is your freckles that have chased away the sun, and brought the snow today. What a difference. I did enjoy reading your post today, it gave me a real giggle. thank you for popping in today and your good wishes for Flash. Have a good Easter. xx Maggie #9

BJ said...

Hi Hels, Nice to pop by your desk, had a good nose round and did I spot a backgammon board? Ahh - takes me back to my youth playing backgammon, never seem to find anyone who plays it now.

As for the tulle, is that what it is really called here in the UK? I have always called it netting, remember the layers in my ballet tutu - oh dear more reminiscing.

BumbleVee said...

I used to have an MG back in the day! What fun racing around with the top down.... .... the car top that is...except for the one day I had to take my own off in a hurry when a bee fell into the front of my shirt.....acckk!!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

"Some tulle" indeed! I laughed at the PILE of tulle. I truly expected a little bit not enough for a whole tu-tu.. Not sure why but.... there ya be. I think you have a reason to be smug as your room is still looking quite nice and it feels good to have everything in its place and not random piles everywhere (I KNOW this, don't practice it so much though). And umm.... great tag! Yeah, that's it.

Lynn Holland said...

your desk and shelves are so interesting i want to sit there and have a play

one i made earlier today

Beachstudio said...

Love your desk, really like how you put things around you to inspire you! Nice and light too!

Elizabeth said...

Even with tulle on your desk it still looks tidy. You kid some of the folks, Hels, but I've seen you demoing on TV and you, neatnik like, clean up after you! Enjoyed your post and wish you a happy Easter. Elizabeth x #147

Julia Dunnit said...

Blimey, are you taking up ballet....not good for your back love!!! No I get it, and no doubt what you do will make me want to take u p ballet too! I don't believe you about the moustache...bet yo ur freckles are just pretty...funny how we do not want what we're blessed with!

Tracy said...

OMGosh.... I'm not sure what hooked me first, repeat of Wednesday or nip then the freckle mustache!

I also freckle easily although I can't lay claim to a mustache from them. I have maintained that instead of a nice tan, I get the "freckle tan" where they multiply in great numbers into splotchy dirt looking blobs. No golden sun kissed tan for me. I look like I missed a few spots in the shower.

Happy WOYWW & Easter! Warmly, Tracy #28

Sam said...

From one Freckleface to another Freckleface - Howdy! Is that why Freckles is called Freckles?
Tidy desks seem to be the order of this week.
As for Tim's class it is great but you already know that. I just love the lickle tips he gives which I love!
Bet you wanted Ferdy to go round the racetrack! LOL! xx

Di said...

Hi Hels

Love the fact that am not the only one who quite likes doing repetive jobs like wedding invites!

Love your work area - lots of room to spread out :)

Belated happy WOYWW!

Di

Shoshi said...

You have a great creative space, Hels. I wonder what you are going to do with all that tulle? Love the tag, too!


Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. Yes - zentangled plankton lol! It seems that everywhere I turn at the moment, there's something crying out to be zentangled!! This new passion is certainly making me look at things differently...

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #25

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I missed you last week. Was it me or you? Love that tag! Inky, inky! Happy Easter and happy WOYWW from # 6.

Karen said...

Lots of lovely items in your craft space to play with and I love your tag, its gorgeous :)

I am sorry I am a bit late this week!! Have a fab WOYWW and a lovely Easter, Luv Karen xx #173

sandra de said...

Love that tag you have created. I am so into cogs this week that I am zooming in to have a close up of your steampunk creation. Always fab stuff on your desk.

Helen said...

Hi Hels thanks for popping in to mine - this is a return visit. I love your chat! Your workspace is cool. Love your displays of stamping stash. Sorting is great therapy and you never know what long forgotten goodies you might find! Helen 29

Morti said...

Yay verily, I did indeedy lose count of how many times you threw Wednesday into that first paragraph.

I'm exhausted reading it!

Lil Grumpies are fab aren't they? The spooky grumpies are even better - I love the vampire one with the quote "bite me".... LOL

Thanks for stopping by!

RosC said...

Good laugh, good desk, great tag. Hate to think what Aussie sun would do to your freckles. Mind you, mine just join up fairly quickly. I'm probably a sitting duck for having skin cancers taken off same as the Dad.

Deb said...

Happy Easter, Debxx
