WOYWW #194

Another Wednesday rolls into view (and over me, it feels like!) and so once again it's time for the mayhem that can only be...
Da da da dada ta-da!!!
Did you have a drum roll in your head just then?! *lol*
Anyways... as everyone should know by now, you just pop over to Ms Julia's blog (The Stamping Ground) and follow the simple instructions. If they weren't simple, I wouldn't be able to follow them :)
So here's the mess desk this week:
Hubby bought me a bag of tiny nuts and bolts, and I haven't had time to look through them or put them away - which is the only reason they are still sat on my desk. I use them for putting hinges and clasps onto my mini album boxes. The main part of my desk is being covered by the mini-album I'm still making. I have 1 last page to do... and then I have to decide on binding, covers, etc. At the back is a bathroom mirror which has been broken. The other side is still a mirror which I shall just keep as it is. For the rest of the mirror (that is no longer *lol*) I will give it a big clean-up and then choose a photograph to place in the empty space, modpodge it to within an inch of it's life and then embellish. That's something to do for another time though... have to get this album finished first!
As for the Big Shot... you can see from the plates that it's being well-used already :) And it's not even my birthday until tomorrow.
I am sooo spoilt!
Here's hoping everyone has a brilliant Wednesday!

Thanks for stopping by last week, Yes it is a SPAM can..we live about 60 miles from the Museum and this was a special flavor. Once in a while I love fried spam with eggs. I keep my stencils in it.
I peeped about a bit as last week had computer problems. You've a cute piece of work happening with the album. Love my Big Shot..and have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY. A great way to be spoiled. I'm #10 this week. Enjoy the week.

Brilliant album coming along there Sheleen! And HUGE Happy Birthday wishes for tomorrow - so pleased you're loving the Big Shot.

Err, but as for me doing the stamp sorting and cataloguing - it's very much a start-stop process, so I haven't been doing it regularly all year :))

Happy WOYWW, and Happy tomorrow!!

Hugs, Di xx
