ARGHH!!! For all my good intentions of once again being a regular bloggerite, life got in the way and I have done absolutely NOTHING. I have had my flu jab - and again got incredibly ill after having that awful needle jabbed into my arm (it was expected - though I am forever hopeful that one year, my flu jab will do nothing except protect me from the flu lol). So... apart from very slowly crafting and laying in bed feeling all sorry for myself, I have done very little - as my messy kitchen can testify to :)
It is now the extreme early hours of Wednesday morning, and I have 'things' on my mind that are keeping me awake - so, a perfect opportunity to partake in the ever-expanding, always interesting "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?". Ms Julia at The Stamping Ground hosts, and the rules and regs are over on her blog if you want to find out more or take part :) This week I am number... 11
So, onto my desk...
Bit boring, huh?!
I have finished the base of the project mini-album I started working on - it's an album with a drawer attached. I have to make all the tags and photo-matts to go inside now :)
I had to include this little bit of the desk - at the back there is my favourite pencil sharpener with hugging foxes on it ... so cute! The lucky troll was a present from my mum, a long time ago! She also crochet'ed the little flower it sits in. Oh... the foxy eye mask - that's my daughters and I am supposed to be repairing it.
I did treat myself recently - I bought a little craft tidy that hangs off the drawer of my desk - I just use it to keep my most-used glues and tapes handy :) It was £3 at 'The Works' ... a shop I have NEVER been able to walk past lol
I ordered myself a few paper pads too :) The mini-album drawer combo I just made was decorated using the "Wild At Heart" First Edition paper pack - I LOVE these papers :)
Now, I must apologise... some people may have noticed that the black curtains in my craft room always look a bit grubby and dusty. I swear it's not my fault... my cats love to sit on the windowsill as I am crafting - so it's not dirt or dust you see - it's just masses of cat hair :D
See...? This is Coco just sneaking out from behind the curtain. The local fox was just doing her rounds and my cats like to watch her from the safety of the inside lol
Coco (we call her "CoCoBean") loves nothing more than sitting on my crafting space and stopping me from working lol... but she's not the only distraction...
Barkley McScruffles doesn't like to be left out either, and he often sits or lays on my feet as I craft the hours away.
Well... that's my Workdesk this Wednesday - and I will admit that I have discovered something in the last two weeks...
I have tried my utmost to 'clear as I craft' and tidy up as I work on my projects and creations. It makes every project take twice as long... and it's BORING! I tidy up, and I can't find anything! Okay, so I do find it hard to find anything in the mess and chaos I create in the wake of my crafting anyway - but at least rooting around in piles of stash is fun (and I always seem to find something I'd forgotten I had too). Tidy crafting is boring crafting - mess is good :)
I shall leave you with that thought... and wish you all a wonderful week and a Happy Wednesday!
