WOYWW 65

Sorry I didn't make on it here last week, we had a few days away in Brighton and also went to Chessington World of Adventures and Legoland too.  Best thing about the trip was that I found some Washi Tape!  so I have treated myself to three rolls of it although it's still unused at the moment but children are back at school tomorrow so let's hope I find some time to myself, although I have to confess that the house has been a bit neglected during the summer holidays so I really should be catching up with jobs around the house first - we shall see!

Anyway this is my desk as of yesterday afternoon:
Same old, same old really - baby boy card still on the desk as I haven't yet seen the baby or posted it yet!  Pink bag holds my 3D tapes, that blue string is new (bought it the week before last when we went to Bristol for a few days) and I know that it looks like I have just plonked the bunting on the desk but I have, finally, taken it down from the lounge wall (just yesterday and my birthday was in June!) ready for OH to put up above my desk as I can't reach and I don't want to have to tidy up to clamber on the desk - so hopefully next week that will be up on the wall behind my desk for you all to see again!

If you want to join in the with the fun and games of looking at people's workspaces then come along and join us at Julia's.  I managed just over 100 desks two weeks ago and now that the children are going back to school I am hoping to visit you all! (housework pending).

Thanks for looking :)

I think it was back in June that I learned what a bunting was. Too funny. Will look for it on the wall next week. BTW, apology accepted (grin).

House work first? Crafting first? Really no competition is there? :-)
Happy crafting.

Housework... what's that? Oh I know it's what you notice you haven't done when you are lying on the sofa sick! Great desk thanks for the snoop.
Did you get the Washi tape in Brighton? I'll kick myself if it was from there as I could have got some whilst I was there. DD1 lives there and will have to send me some if it is from there.

Blue string, yes hubby wanted string to tie up some chicken portions the other day, I only had green gardening twine. Love your bunting, and a nice very organised crafty space!

Lulabelle said...

Great desk! I haven't seen washi tape either!

The wire I made my birdie cage from was from Wilkinsons.

Carola Bartz said...

I like your work space, it is a creative mess which is just lovely.

Poppit said...

I was immediately drawn to your promarker pots...loving the colour co-ordination!

Cath said...

Great looking work in progress desk.

JoZart said...

Thanks for your reply.... it's that or the ironing.. .I don't think so.. get real! I stopped ironing when my girls were able and old enough to do their own and DH does his too. Just don't do it and they will if they need to and I have very little to iron of my own.
Must ring DD1 now for that washi tape order!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah, it had to happen - taking down the bunting sort of brings the holiday to a close, huh! My house is neglected too, but I feel when DD goes back to college I shall have a whole day to myself before setting to the housework! Go on - treat yourself!

kath said...
