WOYWW

I only seem to post twice weekly lately - and one of those posts is always on a Wednesday to show my workdesk to the world! *lol* So... happy "WHAT'S ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY?" to all.
By the way... if you ever want to join in just pop over to the Stamping Ground and add your name... it's really a lot of fun to have a nose around other people's work spaces :)
I've started work on yet another mini-book project... a Christmas House, and this is taking over my desk this week (and possibly a few weeks to come too!).
The house (which will have a 6"x8" mini album inside when complete) has had the edges painted, and the roofing 'tiled' (Martha Stewart edge punch) and I'm using Papermania silk papers to decorate it (eventually!). My carousel is full again... including glue sticks that fit into my new glue gun that Hubby bought for me (YAY!!!). It's got a lovely small nozzle, and runs on batteries... so no cords getting in the way (for kittens to chew). Quite a tidy desk today (I'm quite proud of myself for being less messy *lol*) and even my work mat is clean. Though that mat will have to be replaced soon - I'm wearing away the numbers and cutting grooves into it!

More news (you just know this will be about kittens again! *lol*)...
I sold a kitten!
A lovely lady called June bought Boo-Bear, renamed him Thomas and took him home to meet her 8 year old cat Charlie.
The next morning June phoned me... Charlie had no intentions whatsoever of making friends with 'Thomas'... so he's back with me and being called 'Boo' again...  ah, well.
And it didn't take him long to snuggle up next to Sox and get right back to being part of the household again.
All kittens doing well... being very cute... and still biting my ankles. It's a wonder I get any crafting done at all! *lol*
But they are so adorably cute, aren't they...?

Your furbabies are so sweet - sorry to hear about Boo. I'm sure they will get super homes in the end.

The Christmas house project sounds fantastic!! And ahh to the kitties!

Franka Benjaminsen said...

Really adorable your kittens. I've picked up a kitten from the asylum one year ago. She's doing great but, specially the first months, it's hard to find some time for crafting. Enjoy your time with them. The grow fast.
Your Xmas house project sounds fantastic.
Bye, Franka

nerllybird said...

Ohhh....stop showing me kittens! They're sooo adorable and I keep having to say 'no' to another one because I know Missy, the little mare, hates having other cats around. She's seen two off already :(

Would love to know how the cordless glue gun goes - does it heat up quickly enough? Do you get through loads of batteries? Do you think we could have an update when you know the answers to these questions, please? Thanks! :D

Look like they want to form a gang! Love the house - great idea for a mini-album.
Thanks for sharing, enjoy the desk-hop!

AWW such sweet kitties... Can't wait to see the house..mini-album.. I love the trunks, too.. You are very CREATive.. Thanks for sharing..

Angie said...

I think it is meant that you keep them all ...the lady didn't give them much time to get on together... when a new cat enters the fold we encourage bonding but dont expect any sort of tolerance for at least 3 weeks ...a single cat will feel really threatened by a new kitten.
That glue gun sounds great ...hope you give it a review for us.

Angelfish said...

They are just so cute, I don't know how you can bear to part with them! I love the look of your Christmas house:) That's the 2nd mention of the C word on my travels today!

Andria said...

Your Christmas house looks great but it also looks like it is going to be another lengthy project - look forward to seeing it when completed. The kittens are just adorable - always wanted a ginger cat, and did adopt a gorgeous kitten some years ago but he only lived for 6 short months - he was born with feline aids - his name was Thomas. Hope your week goes well. Elizabeth x #72

Spyder said...

That house looks fantastic, what an amazing amount of work you put into it. Kittens are so cute aren't they? Must be hard to part with them. Think Misty is my favourite, beautiful colours, although Boo is lovely too.
