Good afternoon everyone, thanks for stopping by. Its all doom and gloom here in the North East today - the weather is yuck, but its cool and fresh, so I'm not complaining!! Hehe.

Here is the picture of my desk which was taken in the early hours of this morning - when I really should have been sleeping in order to prepare myself for the earliest start I've had in months (first day back at uni).. but instead I was making this card..

A bit going on today - I think this may be one of the only pictures I have posted which actually shows me mid-crafting! LOL. All the goings on on my desk can be seen finished up on my previous post here. As you can see I have my laptop out - I'm finding it increasingly difficult to craft without it there - and one of these days I am going to end up spilling glue or glitter or embossing powder all over it. Poor thing - it will make a change from drinks or soup I suppose.. don't ask. *blush*

I have my Cuttlebug and my Slice out at either side of the desk (boy, I'm lucky to have all of these gadgets - its what makes crafting to fun and easy). Talking of gadgets I recently ordered myself an i-Top tool from Imaginisce - it arrived yesterday, but I haven't got round to using it yet!! That is on my list of things to do today, before I have my darts 2nd round of doubles tonight. I want to get ahead on my DT positions so I'm going to sit down and craft!! Thats after I have been shopping and had my ham and spicy cheese toasty made with a multigrain mission deli wrap for dinner. Why I end up talking about food on WOYWW I do not know.. *whistles to self and rolls eyes*

So, thats about all I have for you today, I hope its enough, I know I have been neglecting my blog a bit lately!!..

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank a few people:
Roz, for being my friend and guiding me with various craft-y related ventures
Mei, for offering me a chance to create cards with her products to showcase them on her blog and at craft fairs..
a few craft websites such as The Ribbon Girl, Quixotic Paperie and Bunny Zoe Crafts..
and my other online friends, such as Lexi, Katrina, Kim and Donna.

Thank you so very much ladies - you are the people who make this hobby all the more fun!



  1. Looks like a lot of creativity happening on your desk, love the look of the card you are making :)
    Its pretty much the same weather wise down South as well, dark, cold, wet and dreary!!
    Have a fab WOYWW,

  7. WOW lots of fun stuff on your desk and still plenty of room to work! I like a desk that is a little crowded it limits what I pull out! Vickie #59

  8. I cannot do without my computer either, for printing out backing sheets, sentiments, creating layouts for cards before printing out the elements.

  9. What would we do without our toys! Very creative workspace.

    Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs Marjo #7


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