WOYWW 105

Well how much fun was last week!  I have to admit my experience was a bit stressful too due to being on holiday and reliant on free wifi at breakfast and my OH's phone! but still I managed to join in, get my pif sent - from lovely Looe in Cornwall - and get in touch with my sender too, so phew. In fact looking back now me frantically waving a phone in the air to keep a dodgy connection whilst stuffing my face with a full english in the middle of a Cornish Premier Inn restaurant was probably quite a funny sight to see!  Honestly the things we do for our Wednesday fix of snooping!

I also didnt manage to get to visit many of you either due to being on holiday and then taking two days to celebrate my birthday but I will endeavour to try harder this week!

Here is my desk dining room table as of yesterday afternoon:



 - the black and white ribbon I have just bought today (Tues) from the rag market in Birmingham, the plant is a gift from my two little boys (it has pink glitter on it too - very sweet!), the Tilda box kit is a birthday present from a quarterly sewing club I am in, the yellow album and plastic bag should really be in the bin/recycling, the layout I have got very stressed about as I started it a couple of weeks ago and still cant seem to find the missing things to finish it (I envisaged little dinosaurs and ladybirds peeking out through the branches but cant muster up the energy to put them there!) so I have decided whilst taking this picture that actually the layout is complete as is and I am going to move on - no wonder I have no mojo if I am stressing over bits peeking out!!, the pile of stamps were bought before my holidays and I have yet to use them - oops.  Thats about it really - if you want to join in the fun and show your desk to the world then pop over to Julias and join in the fun.  We should all be showing our PIFs today but I havent received mine yet but will post it when I do!

Have a great day and thanks for looking :)

I love he Rag Market for ribbon- you get some great deals. I also often go to Latifs, which is only a 5 minute walk away( do you know it?)- I get lots of paper/dried flowers, ribbon/pearl string etc from their floristry & bridal section. Happy WOYWW, Shaz #96

I am glad to hear you had a good Birthday and hope you got my message of good wishes. Nice layout there. Hubby and I are off to Cornwall later this year and looking forward to it if we can get over the stress of finding somewhere we (a) like the look of and (b) it is where we want to go and (c) it is within budget and (d) can take our dog!! Tall order I know!!
Hugs

The layout is lovely!! To me it looks finished - and I know what it feels like to stress out over some details because we have that image in our head. Great work!
