Hello everyone, Gosh it seems such an age since I joined in with the weekly snoop at crafters desks over a Julia's.  Probably because it is really - I seemed to be spending far too much time online looking at blogs, pinning or gaming that I took the decision to drastically reduce my pc time as I wasn't getting anything else done!  However after a nice long break I am back and raring to go!

Here is my desk as of last night:

Not the most exciting but I wanted to join in and it is what it is eh!  The cards on the left are table settings for my Mom's 70th Birthday lunch next week which are plain and simple but as today is another day they will probably be all inked up by lunchtime!

Anyway that's it for me now, thanks for visiting and I will hopefully be round to visit you today too.

Back into Cardmaking from Solihull.

Ooooh I have just looked and the last time I joined in was week 204! where on earth has 70 weeks gone??

Oh yes..being online can chew up the hours. I might even try using a timer for myself. There is just so much you can learn on line isn't there.Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

Hi there, good to see you back! I don't look at Pinterest much, too much looking and not enough doing for my liking! So you made a good decision, I think.....hope your crafting batteries have been well charged up :-)

Hi I'm back and am really enjoying the adventure of setting up my new creative space in our new home. I've really missed catching up with all my blogging friends but hopefully over the next day or so I will pay you all a visit.
I see you've been away longer than me though :-) Thanks for your visit bear in mind it will take a long time for all the changes we plan to make but you will be very welcome to watch developments :-)

Love that table cloth. It's the first thing I noticed, followed by the Big Shot. I'm always happy to see somebody else who has a blue one still going strong. Thanks for stopping by today and welcome back to woyww.

I've just returned to WOYWW today too after quite a long absence. Great to see what you are up to. The table settings are looking good - interested to see what else you do to them - perhaps you can share next week. And a Happy birthday to your mum for next week. Thanks for sharing your workspace today. Hazel, WOYWW, #34 x

Welcome back! What a happy looking table there in Solihull. Enjoy all the inking and colouring today as you prepare for your mum's birthday. Solihull? Started our married life off there back in 1972 - Manor Rd - golly, that's a lifetime away!
Thanks for visiting already. Yes, it was a great and busy w/e with all those cards - but as I have over 200 to make, I thought I'd best choose something simple!!!
Take care. God bless.

Well welcome back, good to have you here.
Things going on there in Solihull, but what is that yellow thing that looks like a knife in a round block, it looks dangerous.
Thanks for popping by at my desk.

You have some really pretty pink flowers on your desk too. You sound so busy, I do hope you find time to craft some more.

Hi, pleased to meet you. You are so right about blogging and hopping it can take up so much time. But you look as though there is plenty of crafting going on too.

So glad to hear you've been enjoying your time away from the 'puter. I often say we had a lot more time before we got these "time saving" devices. lol

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments. Wish I could send you a few of these tomatoes! :-)

Happy creating and happy woyww,

Andrea said...

Lisa-Jane said...

LOL! I think so many of us have a love/hate relationship with Pinterest. Great for inspiration but a HUGE time suck if you just browse it for hours. My pet peeve is boards that have a generic title (like scrapbooking) and have 5000+ pins. But my word! 70 weeks IS a long time, so I'll have to check out your YT vids and see how you have been spending your time :)

Happy WOYWW!

Neet said...

Well, welcome back! I did wonder where you had gone, really. But then I hop about on so many blogs I never got around to enquiring.
Love the cloth on your table - very nice and bright.
Hugs, Neet 16 (I am like the White Rabbit in Alice - always late - thanks for your earlier visit).

RosA said...

Your desk looks very busy! But maybe it is the bright tablecloth that makes it look even more busy :)
Thanks for dropping by!

I took a big long break from WOYWW too for over a year, and oh how I missed it! I've been (mostly) back for a couple of months now and am constantly remembering how much I love it!

Happy birthday to your mom this week! I hope her birthday lunch is awesome!

Happy (late) WOYWW!
