WOYWW125

Well here I am for the fourth week running! not bad considering I was only able to play along once every few weeks earlier in the year! didn't visit many of you though last week as things kind of caught up with me.
Here is my desk as of this morning though:
half way through a layout there (couldnt resist these Pixie Glen papers even if they are a bit pink!) - I say half way as it looks finished but nothing apart from the photo is stuck down yet!  The reversed tag there is from a quick tutorial I put together for my fortnightly challenge (on the post below if you are interested) and is nothing to do with the layout, other than that just the tools I am using and some stuff out that really should be tidied away but I am not sure where to put it!  Just out of shot is some material I bought the other day in the hopes of sitting down for a sewing session and making a nice big pile of leaves to use with some of those fabulous Prima flowers I have, UTEE is also out as I now have a brand new melt pot thanks to Ranger replacing my broken one and just piles of stuff really. 
If you would like to join in the fun over at Julias then pop over and upload a picture of your workspace so we can all come and have a good nosey!

Thanks for looking :)

Well done you for going with something a bit pink - it happens to me very occasionally too! (except I try to convince myself it is more purple or blue than pink.........
I love the little mushroom brads - very current seasonal. Go get your page stuck down before someone sneezes ;)

Happy Crafting!

Hello again - yes going to the NEC it is my twice yearly rummage - we go on the Thursday as I could not cope with a weekend and the little one is in nursery and I hate seeing board children and pushchairs at the these things....... What about yourself?

Spyder said...

Your LO is so gorgeous - I love everything about it. The paper, the embellishments, but most of all , that lovely photo...so cute!
I can't say that list making comes to me naturally!! In fact, I still haven't done one - all the stuff I have to do is swirling around in my rapidly filling up head :D

That sounds like a splendid idea - gosh Artisan that is a year a go now - shame they didn't manage another one this year. Name a time and a place and I'll see you there.... I'm usually about just after 9:30 (often grabbing a drink in Starbucks..... until around 2 - 3ish)

Angie said...

I love that style of paper but find it hard to use. Your LO is going to be beautiful when everything is stuck down...the embelishments work so well too ....LOVE it.

Your desk is full of fun. I would love to have a bit of a rummage. As to pink, well sometimes it just has to be done!

Ooh scrapbooking! Lovley! Not simething i get to do a lot of I'm afraid. Getting a 17 year old to have his pix taken with his mum is just not cool nowadays *sigh*! LOVE those little toadstools by the way. How cute are they!

Great news about your meltpot too. I am planning on using mine more often after learning some stuff about it at the print tray workshop. That was my first attempt at one of those and trust me there will be more lol.

Thanks for your lovely comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day
