I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

WOYWW 188

Question: What's On Your Workdesk this Wednesday?
Answer: On mine, at the moment, quite a lot of chaos at a slightly crazy angle!  And I wasn't planning to join in this week, but I've seen a few desks and I just don't want to be left out, so here I am...


Question: Join in with what?
Answer: The best crafty blog hop, allowing you a chance to snoop, peek, peer and generally indulge your curiosity to the full visiting craftdesks around the world.  Hop over to the Stamping Ground, where our hostess Julia Dunnit will be delighted to show you around, and you can join in too.


Now I've got to go and get on with some of those many, many half-done things on the desk.  

I hope to get the little Victorian girls up and posted later today (yup, done), and then try and figure out what to do with my fairytale castle window frames, so I'll  be back later to do my snooping.

Oh, and anyone who's not heard my big news... do have a look here.

So much to do, so little done, so much to be.

All looks amazingly wonderful, talented, awesome, amazing as always! P.S I want to know where you got those lovely wooden(?)swirl ebellishments from? I keep forgetting to ask and seeing them here reminded me! xxxxxx

We quite like the slightly crazy angle. Know what you mean about missing out. We had no intention of posting boxing day, but couldn't bear (get it?) to miss out even for a week.

Just wanted to let you know I saw your butterfly tutorial this morning and its beautiful! Loved it and can't wait to try that alcohol and tissue paper technique. That was your tutorial wasn't it? It looked like your style.

Eagerly awaiting these in an end product! You may recall I was impressed with your cargo case some time back, well one friend got me a cargo case and another the trinket case for Christmas (after I had pointed them out of course) so I am surrounded with wonderful boxes! Thank-you for tip. Nicola x

P.S. I know, the hard sell on the alpha stamps was a bit over the top LOL but I absolutely love that set (just in case you were in any doubt!)

Buttons said...

Massive congrats again on your well deserved AO design spot. You'll need to get those fairies to conjure you up some extra hours for more wonderful crafting. Will be back to see what you do with these frames. Hugs, Jenny x #35

I've just stood on my head to have a really good nosey at all the great looking things you have on your desk there. In fact I've already seen the finished amazing work of art you've created on the next post. How talented you are.

Love those dreamy colours on your desk, the finished triptych is beautiful! Tried to leave "Congratulations" on you blog the other day but couldn't manage it - hope it's not too late!!! What an exciting time you're having!
Thanks for all your comments by the way - I really do appreciate your spending the time, Chrisx

MaggieC said...

Those frames look lovely and I hope you will show us the finished projects. Congratulations on your fantastic news and enjoy it. Thank you for your visit and I must put you out of your misery,I do not do masks for each set of new stamps. I wish I was that organised. I usually do them in a panic or try to do without - not a good idea. Have a great week. xx Maggie #32

sandee said...

Glad you joined in Alison, although I'm getting a crick in my neck trying to figure out how you help your camera to get that angle! lol waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Wow, congrats on making the design team! Look forward to seeing you creative output soon :)
Your beautiful windows reminded me of The Secret Garden for some reason, all nostalgic and wistful....they're really lovely!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That is quite an interesting angle for the photo of your desk, but it makes one look around more. I didn't realize that your arches from today were cut through the middle. I thought they were solid pieces.

Apryl said...

Congrats on making the design team :). Your work is great

Happy WOYWW!
