Another Wednesday, another desk... sounds like a Country & Western song to me :)
Still not joining in on the fun that is found at the Stamping Ground, with "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?". Well, pop on over to Julia's and add your name to the ever-growing list of nosey-parkers around the world who, each Wednesday, tire of wondering where their mojo has drifted off to and have a sneak around other people's ideas and creative spaces instead *lol*
Last night was 'Craft Club' at the wondrous and magical place that is Pickwells. Did I mention cold? Well, it was darn cold there last night too... so I kept warm by hobbling around the shop, discovering magical and amazing things to buy. This included: more charms, the "Snow Flurry" PATP set (oh... it's sooooo beautiful! - and the last one in stock, so I had to buy it!), as well as some 6x6 Christmas papers, a DoCrafts 'top note' die set, some wooden leaves, Tea Dye Distress Ink (and re-inker), and some Prima flowers. All on my desk - somewhere around the bottom right of the photograph I think.
So, onto what else is taking up craft space on my desk today...
Covering my desk is a whole load of things that I had considered placing on top of the book-stack base of my new project (far right)... Dolls house furniture, bird houses, straw hat, boxes, wooden blocks... I even had a wreath. And what's been chosen...? Well, none of that actually. I made a little configuration-like box that will be home to a little owl, a basket and a few bits of 'stuff'... and something else I'm working on too that involves a coat hanger. I don't consider anything I've bought a waste... it will all be used in one way or another... eventually :) AND... it was all bought 'on the cheap', so no big loss.
Time for a quick catch-up? Then read on...
CallieCat and babies are all doing VERY well... so cute and adorable! I'll post some piccies in the next few days.
The 'Big Bash' went really well - who knew a house full of teenagers could be so well-behaved? Okay, so they were a little loud. Oh, alright... I admit it - they were a LOT loud *lol*... but so much fun! In our house we have a bit of a tradition known as "The Gorm Shot"... basically, you pull the most awful face you can when a photograph is taken... great for unusual wedding photographs, and brilliant if you can get the vicar to join in at a Christening *lol* So... 17 teenagers sat down for a photograph... and I got 'gormed'!
Several people chose not to have a photograph taken... spoilsports! *lol*
Sadly, the following day I recieved a phonecall from my eldest daughter... Little Sox, her black and white kitten (from CallieCats last litter) had been hit by a car and killed. She is devastated, and I've been around to her home to help her sort through a few things. Sox was her baby... she went everywhere with Naomi - either in her handbag, or with a little harness on. They did everything together, and now poor little Sox is no more. I'm sure Naomi will get over it... and have another cat (in time)... but for now she and her fiance Dan just want to remember their 'Baby Kitty'.
My Internet Service Provider (ISP) has had a few problems... my e-mails are just not getting through to me. My mail box remains empty... and then every few days I get a huge influx of all the mail that's been queueing up! Some of it is just gobble-de-gook... but my ISP has promised to sort it out very soon. So, if you've mailed me in the last couple of weeks... SORRY! I am trying to get round to answering e-mails... when I get them, and if I can understand them *lol*
Well, with parties, craft club, shopping trips and visits to a distraught daughter, my time online has been somewhat lacking. I promise I'll try to catch-up with everyone... though I can't guarantee that I'll be able to comment on all the posts I've missed. Please, please accept my apologies for this.
In the meantime... if you're still reading... Have a productive, happy, and fun-filled Wednesday... and the rest of the week too!
