Is it that time again already?! I have had a busy week this week. I started the week designing and making the first 3 cards for my lesson next week which I blogged about and which you can see below. My first photo for your perusal my fellow WOYWW friends is the view to my left as I type this on my Mac. Don't look at the mess on the side!!! Ok then I know you must so.... from the left of the photo, old post shelves which now house all my A4 card stock, tucked in the corner behind the drawers is my tool bag and one embellishment bag that I take to crop, more Ikea drawers, the tall one has my ribbon scrap tin, a tin I made at a make and take, a little white pot and shell turtle made by my youngest, A photo of my 40th, oh and a bee pin cushion I made for a swap out of an old film canister (the young don't even know what they are now!)...amongst other bits and pieces.
Moving to the right we have another drawer unit with card samples on and then my accounting stuff waiting to do a tax return. The higgledy piggledy mess in front is waiting for the tidy up fairy to land and there is another embellishment bag holding goodies that go with me to crop.
After making the mess above we went to visit my Mother in Law for the Bank holiday weekend and now I am sitting here feeling the after affects of a garden make over. My husband did the heavy work and he swears he isn't aching - I am not sure I believe him! And the weather though not brilliant kept mainly dry for us which was a blessing.
The photo above was actually what was on my desk last night but I took it as many of you wanted to see how I got on with the projects for my son's gym who are celebrating the Olympics. I am really pleased with the Olympic pledge torch. I am happy to report the flames now have pledges written on them and over the next week the children should really light up the flame! You can see how many flames I have cut out at the base of the torch and I need to add to that today! A bit of the olympic hoop I decorated is in the front of the photo. The mess is still there this morning and is my first job today.
I have the feeling though that I am going get a coffee and spend an hour (or two) desk hopping first! Much better idea I know you will agree. For anyone popping by who don't know what on earth I am talking about then follow this link to Julia's and find out about all the lovely WOYWW folk out there in blogland that you can make friends with and to my WOYWW pals thanks for popping in to see me!
