It was a dark and lonely night, as she sat alone in a cold room... a vigil of her own makings. The importance of what lay ahead bore heavy on her shoulders, the responsibilty was hers alone. What drove this woman to such extremes? What was it that made her sit here, with no company save for the moon peeking from behind a looming cloud... what was so important that she gave herself this task? So long - hour after hour - she sits. Waiting. Until... The sky in the East held a faint glimmer... the hue that gave rise to a new day, a new dawn. The lone woman turned her head toward the growing light, and smiled... finally her wait was over. She could finally, and at last...
... publish her "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" photo and post.
Oh the fun I have thinking up new ways to introduce the WOYWW challenge *lol* Julia at the Stamping Ground (who hosts this wonderful weekly event) must think me quite insane. And she could be right *lol* But if you read her blog, you'll see that she probably understands this sort of madness quite well (in a good way... really!).
So, what is on my workdesk this Wednesday? A mess. A big, jumbled, missing-mojo, can't-create-for-toffee, sit-for-hours-staring-into-nothing sort of mess.
The makings of a paper-bag album that I know already I shan't be using on the "Autumn Swirls" book-base - including kraft cardstock, corrugated cardboard, 'Vintage Photo' distress ink... and my rhubarb and custard boiled sweeties (helps with concentration. Really!). Oh, and a few Halls Mentholyptus to clear my blocked nose. Yes, on top of all my grumbles, I have also managed to catch a rotten cold *lol*
This is a photograph I'll have to hide from Darling Hubby... he's a keen-eyed man, and will notice the computer turned on, with my purse laying next to it. He'll put two and two together, and come up with something a LOT lower than what I really spent online shopping...Oops! Time to hide the bank statements *lol*
My notepad lies open - though falling off of the table - with not a single word written down... my mojo really has disappeared. Of course, this could be a good thing, which gives me a few hours to tidy up and vaccuum the craftroom, make the bed, clean the toilet, do the dishes, and sort the darks from the lights in the washing pile. Only I haven't done it... any of it. I spent yesterday in bed with a box of tissues and Jeremy Kyle on the television. The early hours of Wednesday found me adding a bit here and there to the book-base... just a hanging charm of some keys and a clock face:
And a little gold-coloured bee to the drawer:
That's it... nothing else has been created or made - or even thought of!
So... what's on YOUR workdesk this Wednesday? Time to share folks... I want to have a nosey around, get some inspiration, and find out on whose desk my mojo is vacationing to :)
Oh, before I go off and have a snooze, thought I'd share a photograph of a really cute kitty. This one has turned up twice in my house in the past week - but she's such a pretty-kitty!
In fact she's such an adorable feline, that I think I'll keep her *lol*
Of course, it's my baby-gurl dressed up for a Halloween party at a friends house - the second time she had to dress up as a cat for a party in the past week. Funnily enough, her boyfriend went to the Haloween fancy dress party too... they made quite an odd couple that night...
... and Connor was so NOT impressed with having his photograph taken whilst dressed as Scooby-Doo. It didn't help that Hubby kept asking him if he wanted a Scooby Snack. Still... they do look cute together :)
That's it for me now... I have to wake up Beth so she can go off to college, and make sure Hubby's new alarm clock wakes him up too - and then I'm off to have a nap until Jeremy Kyle is on the telly at 9.25am. Oh, a morning of slovenly bliss!
Y'all have a wonderful and amazing WOYWW now!
