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!

At least I can be first to comment on yours this week and glad you got your first place. I'm kicking myself as I too was awake and updating my scheduled post as it turned midnight but didn't check Julia's page! Didn't sleep much either so here I am here linking and commenting at 5am!

Love the album and the lace on the front especially, adorable papers too. Oh and I got 420 too, Julia must be in a time warp. Hope you locate your card.

Lynn Holland said...

Isn't it annoying when you the wrong thing arrives. I probably speak for all of us when I say yep that's happened to me haha.
Hope you get sorted soon

Hi Bubbles, I don't know where you are, but if you are in the UK, try PDA Card & Paper. They have an amazing range, including cream! Not much crafting happening here, either, it's sweltering. We Brits just are not used to the sun lasting longer than a couple of days at most. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #9 XxX

Sarah Brennan said...

The garden does sound a better alternative in this weather. Hope your latest attempt at finding the card you need turned out successful. Happy WOYWW Sarah #28

Hi Bubbles! Congrats on your No 1. position on the WOYWW list! I hate it when they mess up my online orders - though I'm usually very understanding having worked for an online retailer for a number of years - I know how easy it is to make mistakes. Hope you're having fun in your craft room and it's not too hot in there! zsuzsa #25

Diane Futrell said...

I keep changing my mind on tidying but this time I'm going to get it done! Let's hope we both have progress next week!

Have a great day!

Happy Summer Solstice! Seems like everyone is up and about in the middle of the night in this heat wave we're having :) Happy WOYWW from a newbie desker :) xo Cheetarah #36

Carmen said...

Oh this heat is unbearable. I am not a sun worshipper in the slightest and even the shade is to hot. Urgh.

I hope you have finally got the card you need to finish your album. How frustrating when that's all that's holding you up.

Have a good week.

Shoshi said...

Sorry you've had so much trouble sourcing cream card, Bubbles. I remember having the same problem several years ago, looking for cream copy card, and ended up with lemon yellow which I really didn't want! I hate this heat and have been like a limp dish rag all day but hopefully it should be cooler tomorrow.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #26

Happy Belated WOYWW. One thing I have lots of in my craft room is cream card and paper/thick card etc etc. Let me know if you would like me to send you a variety to try. It is a lot cooler here, after the mist came in quickly yesterday. Ali x #30

Very beautiful album or is it a storage for you papers?
It´s lovely and the colours delicate anyway. :)

Have a wonderful week!

We've been lucky, the weather has been "just right", not too hot (although we have had a couple of days when hubby complained, but I was fine)and not too cold (although we have had a few days where I complained and hubby was fine!) Isn't it always the way, the thing we need the most is the one thing we can't find, UNTIL, we decide to go with plan B - and there it is. Hope that doesn't happen to you! Thanks for sharing!
