WOYWW 118

It's been a week?!? No! Really??

Apparently so... I have been sadly lacking in updating my blog recently - and I don't really have crafting to blame either :( Still, that's the bad news, and the good news is that it's "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" again! Hosted by the forever-creative and always-friendly Julia at the Stamping Ground.
Last week she had me convinced I was going mad (or should I say "going MORE mad" *lol*) by posting the wrong week number - but she can definitely be forgiven, as she does host WOYWW and is really a lovely person :)

So, onto my desk...
I really should mention the stamp set at the top centre of the picture... I got these from EBay, from a really lovely lady called Susie Jefferson, and then found her on Blogger and became a follwer of her site - she's very creative over at 1st Floor Flat!
I'm still making the album for my daughter - and for the most part I've decided that Kathy at Paper Phenomenon has the best tutorial for me.  Kathy Orta has to be one of the most talented, funniest, and giving papercrafters on the world-wide-web... pop over to U-Stream, YouTube, or her blog and have a laugh with Kathy! And don't forget to become a P.I.T.A Babe too!
The papers for the album, and also a lot of the little embellishments are from "Printable Heaven" ...
... though I'm not too happy that they put a lot of the downloads on half price sale AFTER I had purchased them at full price *lol* Still... that's the way it goes :)

Not a lot on my desk really this week - but that's mainly because I'm trying to concentrate on just one project at a time right now... though I do keep getting distracted by other ideas - like making a mini album from empty toilet paper rolls. I didn't like the idea of using the actual cardboard tubes from the centre of the toilet rolls, so I made some from 300gsm Kraft paper instead. I also made a multi-pocket flip page for what will be my christmas album for the inside of the Christmas Cottage  and I have my lights for the outside of the cottage now too! I'm SO excited... I think I shall call it the "Christmas Lights Cottage" or "The Magical Christmas Cottage". See... distracted again! *lol*

I shall be off of the internet for a few days, as I'm looking after my granddaughter - I am going to be sooooo tired! *lol*
So... everyone, as usual, have a wonderful WOYWW... have fun, laugh a lot... and make a LOT of creative mess!
