WOYWW #110

Wednesday has crept up on us once more... *drum roll, please!*... time for another "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?"  with the wonderful Julia at The Stamping Ground.
The same project - I'm working so slowly on this Christmas house... but I have been a busy bunny this week! I managed to get a new craft mat - a very large green one this time - because the purple one (which is in centimetres and pink on the reverse) has almost doubled in price since I last bought one!  This new green one is twice the size, with centimetres and inches both on the same side - so no having to turn over mid-flow on a project if I need to measure the 'new' way (I'm so much an imperial measurements kind of gal *lol*). Of course, the old craft mat is still on the table... can't get rid of her just yet.  I've bought out my Christmassy craft box to see how I'll decorate the house and the mini album I make to go inside... so much choice! The papers are being kept nice and safe by CallieCat who has an amazing ability to sit on whatever it is that I want to use... whether that is a paper I'm reading, or papers I want to craft with.
I also stocked up on some really lovely lace yesterday - cream, white and back designs that will end up one way or another in a mini-album or scrapbook layout. The ever-cold cup of coffee is also sat on my desk... and maybe at some point I'll manage to finish drinking it!
Regulars to my blog (thank you to the few! *lol*) will notice a slight change... the desk has moved, the room is different... My curtains are no longer rolled up (well, if we want to be posh, they are actually voiles *lol*), picture frames are back on the window sill, crafting items are strewn about...
This can mean only one thing...
the kittens are gone!
All rehomed with wonderful people who are loving their new pets - and one crazy lady who takes her new kitten everywhere she goes. This lady would be my eldest daughter :) I swear that girl spends more time here since she moved out than when she actually lived here. Since Sox has become her 'baby', she has come to visit twice (in two days!) No box is safe from Sox... not even my Christmas House project...
Give that kitten a box, and she'll take a nap!
Callie is doing okay since the kittens have gone ... not that she's missed Sox much with all these visits!
Misty was taken by Amiee Rose and homed with her lovely family... and Max and his brother BooBear (now called Simba) are homed with Mark and his partner and are being spoilt rotten (the lucky little kits!).
Do I miss them...?
A little ickle bit... maybe. I'm not so much a kitten-person as a cat-person. Oh, yes! they're cute when they're little babies... but a full-grown cat is so much more fun! (and less messy, more independant, doesn't chew electrical wires, and doesn't need a litter tray to pee and poop).

Anyhoooo...
Once again, have a wonderfully brilliant "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" and may the rest of the week be amazing for you all too!

Sox certainly looks comfy

Lots of pretty lace there - I never seem to find lace that I really like (very limited sources round here and very expensive).

Hope Mrs Kitty lets you play with your PPs

Awwww Sox looks very cute x I have found my local haberdashery sells off the ends of lace for 25p! they are still at least 12" long and I now have a huge variety :)

Ok the Christmas house is going to be my favorite thing you've made. I love gingerbread houses so this is just as pretty and neat. You can wrap it up and send it to me,lol....even with the cute little kitty inside it. I will miss seeing all your cute little babies but glad they are all in a good home. I bet you will get a lot more done without having to stop and shoo away a kitty now. Have a fun and crafty week.

Gosh it's famine and feast isn't it - one minute you've got all the kittens and then bam! none! Well, I'm happy for them and for you, although that pic of Sox in the box is jsut lovely. Take your time over the house - I believe there's a handful of months yet!

Oh, Sox is sooooooo cute in that box. We could start a 'Cat in Container' thread between us this week!!! Re: buttons. I have a button box downstairs which is a gift from my mum. We often have card games of an evening, playing Newmarket etc and my boys (18 and 15) still fight as to who gets the 'special'buttons'. !!

That box is so cute! And even cuter with Sox in it. That lace looks like a good haul too - I love lace on a layout. I'm in Southampton too by the way.

Your cat is so pretty ,and Sox in that box is hilarious! Good for you, working on Christmas project in July, and happy WOYWW!

Sox in a box? Seems like that should be in a Dr. Seuss book!
Thanks for the great review on the glue gun in the earlier post. I read it the other day, but naughty blogger wouldn't let me comment.

Love the pic of Sox in a box, lol! Must be quiet without them but at least they all have good homes. Your youngest daughter looks beautiful in the next post, that dress is stunning.

Hugs

Very nice post! Love the pics of the cats. I have a cat that guards my craft room and papers. I heard her barking at another cat outside one day telling them to stay away. So funny. thanks for sharing. Vickie
