WOYWW 27/10/10

Hey all, a quick post tonight, as I have just returned from picking my boyfriend up from rugby practice, and I have yet to sort bits and bobs out for tomorrow (errands, uni notes, bank stuff). Yack, boorrring. I would like a relatively early night. Its been so long since I've had an early night and a lie in, I'm beginning to forget how good (or apparently so..) they feel.

Onto the desk..

In all fairness, there isn't a lot going on. This was the 'mess' I left it in before I went and picked my boyfriend up. I was trying out a stamped image to see how well it would work with paper piecing. I got as far as stamping the image..

To the right hand side is my pink bag full of nail varnish and everything to do with 'painting your nails'. Little nail gems, primers, top coats. The lot. You would think I was interested in beauty, let me tell you now. I'm not. I merely like to have a little colour on my nails for the simple fact they used to constantly be in my mouth getting chewed when I was younger, and now they're not, they're lovely and long (if I do say so myself!!).

To the very right are two books, one I have just finished reading, another I am about to read for the 3rd time! :) {HEART} James Herbert.

There isn't really much else for me to add. A glass of Ribena on the left hand side. (next to the laptop - naughty Lou!! You don't wanna know how many of my laptops have suffered from spilt liquid, yet I still don't learn..) I seem to be ADDICTED to the stuff. Only the diluty one though.

Um.. I went for the implant earlier today. And me being the sicko that I am watched and loved every minute of it! :) I don't care about needles and all that nonsense. In fact, I like grusome stuff. It doesn't hurt, as they numb it with local anesthetic first. Just thought I'd let you all know! :)

Thats it, I'm off. Time is escaping me.. as always. I'll try and pop round some workspaces soon!

[Note:] This was meant to be a quick post. Yeah right, I don't have it in me..

Take care. xo


  1. Just about make out your stamp pic there - looks cute. Very naughty with the Ribena (says me typing this with a glass of red wine next to my keyboard!) Christine #22

  2. Oops, I thought that was a cake until I zoomed in and saw that it was a pack of baby wipes... which are totally allowed on your desk!

  3. I cant quite make out the stamped image, but I am liking the thought of the ribena!

  4. Wow tidy desk.

  5. Thanks for a peek at your desk. S #84

  6. thanks for the snoop, it's surprising how many of us have our laptops right in the middle of our crafting bit! Happy WOYWW

  7. a very neat desk! my daughter, too, wears nail polish to stop her from biting! my advice! and now her nails are so nice!

  8. Hope you managed your early night and didn't spill your drink!!
    Luv Joanne xx

  9. Very interesting desk, very angled! Love HA stamps but don't own nearly enough! Used to love ribena and lemonade as a kid, suprised I've still got my teeth!!!

  10. I thought it was a packet of biscuits until I zoomed in..........lol!!

    Have a great weekend. A.xx(80)

  11. Yay another Ribena addict! I'm sure I get withdrawals if I don't have at least 2 pint glasses a day (the light one at least).

    If you like nail varnish etc you should try Shellac by Creative. It's a salon treatment but is basically varnish that is UV set and lasts for 2 weeks. Seriously, no chipping or anything, it's fab!

    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog - Ellie the doggy was very flattered :-)


  12. You have all kinds of distractions on your desk - computer, book, nail polish.... Thanks for sharing!

  13. very tidy desk. are those Hero Arts stamps at the side? I couldnt quite make them out. caroline #14

  14. Thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog last Wednesday. Yes, coffee makes a great dye. I’m still moving slowly, but trying to start visiting people who visited me. I am totally impressed that you can visit blogs while attending UNI. Your desk looks very tidy this week. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).

  15. What a busy but multi-functional desk. Thanks for sharing your workspace. Best wishes, Kym xxx (WOYWW No 24)

  16. Sorry I am late looking at desks - internet failure Wednesday night!
    Love your creative desk but put that ribena somewhere else I am getting nervous!

  17. Thanks for the description of everything - I'm usually left guessing "say what"? but that ribena I could spot from a mile away LOL...are you sure it is diluted?
    Thanks for the peek

  18. That little dolly image is perfect for pieceing I think. Ribena..takes me back! Love the last few cards you've shown, you have a lovely way with colour.


I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for taking the time to look. xo Lou.
