WOYWW #420

Wednes-YAY!!! is here again :)
I've had a weird sort of week - and wasn't able to visit many desks last week - something I hope to rectify this week. I have had so much trouble with ordering online - so many hassles with lost orders, and orders that did arrive being wrong :( Still.. could be worse - I could be sat here in the middle of a heatwave, sweating in a tiddly tiny overstuffed craftroom too! Oh... wait... I AM lol
So, today my desk looks kind of sparse...
Not a lot going on here - mainly because of the problems I've had trying to locate 160gsm-180gsm gram A4 cream coloured cardstock. Not white, not pale orange, not winter-white, not yellow... just CREAM lol. If I wanted any less or more heavier paper/card, I'd be as happy as a piggy in mud - but, there seems to be a lack of what I need. My FIFTH attempt (or is it six now? I've lost count lol) of trying to locate the card I need to finish the incredibly ugly mini album sat atop my desk has been with HobbyCraft - so fingers crossed I'll finally have delivered what I need. Unfortunately, this won't be for the better part of a week, hence the lack of work going on here at my WORKdesk lol
HOWEVER...
A quick look around my room shows a lot less of tidiness and neatness...
... To the right there is a box of 'stuff' for the album that I might use, have used, or am thinking about. To the left behind me...
... more 'boxes of chaos'.
I did start tidying the room... then changed my mind. I blame the weather - it's just too darn hot to do anything!
Well, that's it from me for today. By the time you're reading this, I am hoping to be sat in the garden with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade.
Only to add, that I believe Mr Linky is looking forward to getting his tickles every week, a bit too much now... but he is giving me number...  1. Seriously! I am first - for the first time ever lol. And it's not because I'm up bright and early, but because I haven't gone to bed yet - it's too hot! lol

Want to join in with
?
Pop on over to Julia's blog, the Stamping Ground, where all will be revealed :)
Until the next time... have a wonderful Wednesday to All!

Wednes-YAY! is here again, time for the weekly nosey around the 'interweb' known as 


Wanna play? Go over to Ms Julia's site and give Mr Linky a tickle to get your number. Trust me, all is explained at the Stamping Ground. lol
Today I am number... 13.  Oer... not the first time I have been 'unlucky for some' number 13 - lucky for me I'm not too superstitious :)

So, what IS on my workdesk today (and last night too)?...
Umm... a bit of a mess actually lol
I am once again in the throes of album-making. Pages ready to be put together are in plastic sleeves, metal die-cuts are at the ready, ink is close by, and scraps of paper litter my work-space. I am, shockingly for me, NOT using black card-stock, and (even more shocking for me) have chosen a paper collection with a LOT of pink colours running though it.
Of course my coffee is at hand - sat on the windowsill where I hope it won't be spilled (again).
So that's it - hopefully short and sweet enough this week(I do tend to ramble on usually)

Here's hoping everyone has an amazing Wednesday :)

Firstly, huge apologies for not visiting everyone last week - my internet went down :( Hopefully, this week I'll join in fully for
Hosted by the wonderfully arty Ms Julia each week, you can find details on how to join in on her site here :) I gave Mr Linky a tickle Wednesday afternoon, and collected my number... 36
I am running very late again lol
Because I had no internet, I have been busy filming the tutorial for The Raven mini album that I have finally finished :) It's a haphazard affair, full of mistakes and forgetful moments - but I had fun filming it. Of course, this means my desk is a bit sparse this week...
The finished album is here, on it's stand with a bottle of ink (I made a new label for the bottle to tie it in with the album) and a feather quill in a pen stand. Ed and "you can call him Al" are perched happily beside the album, along with my new tape dispenser. I just thought a penny-farthing holder for sticky tape was such a good idea, I had to buy it lol. It's not actually such a brilliant tape dispenser... but it looks good.The rest of the desk is full of pressies and gifts...
My new OttLite has been brilliant - thank you so much for the recommendation Elizabeth (& Bluebeard). I have a new DVD/disc drive - a pressie from my lovely mum :) Hubby chose the cover for my desk - it's wipe-clean vinyl so I can remove the pet hair and kitty paw prints with ease :)
Lots of gifts this side of my desk - all from my daughter's best friend (thank you Louise!) - you can't see the shell very well, but trust me when I say that it is so gorgeous :)

So, that's my desk this week. 
I hope everyone has an amazing Wednes-YAY!
