WOYWW 151

Hello lovely Crafters and dear WOYWW friends. Here we are at Wednesday again which can only mean one thing. It's time for some desk nosiness. If you want to join in this Wednesday tradition then you need to pop over to see our Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE and get yourself on the register and prepare to meet some fantastic and varied crafting desks and their owners.

This is my first post on the new fangled Blogger so I hope I've got it right, it's taking me some time to find my way around, I don't know about you but it all seems a bit confusing at the minute.


I thought I'd show you the other side of my desk this week. I'm in the middle of making some Flower Fairy cards that were printed from a CD. DH brought home a new wireless printer some time ago as our old one had a bit of a mind of it's own. I had several inks to use up for it and so printed off loads of photos and paper and images which was a rare treat as I'm normally quite careful with the amount of ink I use.

You might also be able to spot my guilty pleasure, the bag of Sour chewy sweets, which I love. There is one glaring omission though, the ever present mug of something. I need to put that right straight away!!!!

Well, that's me for this week so thanks for stopping by. I'm off to spend a lovely hour or so now seeing what everyone else has been up too.

Happy Crafting.

OOoooo *jumps up and down* please can I come and help you cut out?? It's one of my favourite things. I could be with you in about 4.5 hours, M1 permitting...lol!!!
If your weather is as atrocious as ours, I hope you'll have a great time today dealing with that lovely little lot :)

A great desk this morning Lisa, you look very busy cutting all your decoupage. I love the fairy images and do hope we get to see the finished cards as they will look fab :)

Claire Phillips said...

Lisa I am soooo with you on those sour sweets - Haribo are yum - far too good for children...lol Glad to see your desk is looking busy mine is sadly lacking at the mo. Between cold ridden children and Reubs being away on buisness struggling to get studio time. I am dreading working with the new blogger, it's been complained alot about in the posts I've read this morning! Cheers Claire x

I feel like I'm looking at a different room! Great spot and great shot! I too love sour sweets.... have you ever had the ones that are graded 1 to 4 for sourness!! EEEK!
Trouble is that once the outer sherbety stuff goes, I need to eat another!
Shame you missed the giants but don't miss the programme...
Love and hugs
JoZarty x

Ps I also have saturated canary candy on my blog

Polly Polkadot said...

I'm scared of the idea of a wireless printer - what if it goes elsewhere?!! As to those sour sweets, I can't get enough once I start on them.

Michelle Webb said...

I'd love to see those finished cards. Looks like your going to be busy cutting out all your fairies. Thanks for giving us a sneaky peak at your desk. Michelle #82

You are going to be a very busy girl, methinks. Thanks for visiting my blog and Happy WOYWW, Anne #61

Emma said...

I've had a good nose around your workdesk and I can't wait to see those finished fairy cards!!

It took some time for me to get used to the new blogger but I think I'm ok with it now...we're getting on like old friends! lol
Hope you are all well.
Love and hugs, Emma xxx

madebyKarla said...

Love your background! Looks like pretty fabric :)
I love sour gummys too. But when I craft I usually have chocolate or coffee :)

Julia Dunnit said...

I switched to the new interface some months ago, and must be used to it now,, when I switched back to try to fix my scheduling prob, it looked about old fashioned...but I'm pretty ambivalent about it really....as long as I can post, fix and adjust!!
Lots of cutting to do Lisa, good grief. And I spy not just a bag of sours (blurgh...pulling a face just thinking about them!)... Isn't that the neck of a rather nice bag of chocs?

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Oh fun that you got all these print off sheets to play with. I totally understand the need to use up the old printer ink; that stuff is expensive. Have fun with your cut outs and happy fairy card making.

Erika said...

Lisa looks like you've got a great production line going, happy WOYWW, hugs Erika.

Astrid Maclean said...

Your desk looks great, nice to see the other side.

I keep reading comments about Blogger having changed, - mine changed ages ago, but nothing new since then.... keep checking as I see more and more comments about it, but nope, still the same as it has been. Do they change it batches I wonder? Anyway, your post seems to be alright

Happy WOYWW #34

My name is Cindy said...

A desk full of fairies - what more can you ask for? Really like your promarker storage!! TFS DCindy #43

okienurse said...

great looking desk and I love those fairy prints! Looking forward to seeing the cards! Have a great week and thanks for commenting on my blog! Vickie #41

Sam said...

Give me your addy as I am coming round to visit! That is one HUGE bag of Haribo!! Loving the key on the wall too!
I have been dancing again tonight and have not put my desk up as I knew I wasn't going to be home much. By Saturday evening I will have been dancing 4 times this week! I should be skinny but alas not!
I hope I haven't "made" you spend money on a new stamp, but I do find Kaisercraft reasonable for their stamps. Paperarts had them which is where I bought mine on a rare visit!
Hugs

The new blogger suddenly appeared on my blog last week in the middle of typing up a post! I had a dizzy fit!! it wasn't showing me anything I could understand, I couldn't find my post or if it had been saved, I was honestly completely baffled!! After three hours (this was after midnight!) I found the change it =back button and so far, touch wood...it's not changed back again!
I LOVE that key on your wall, I can see that being very useful!
Thank you for my snoop! Have a lovely crafty week! Happy WOYWW!

Late this week! #102

sandee said...

I know what you mean about being frugal with the printing ink, I've always been that way and it would feel like a party if I printed in color at free will! can't wait to see your cards! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina #139

Nice busy desk there - love the big key on the wall. Thanks for visiting me.

Craftgirl said...

Happy WOYWW. My eyes were drawn to that huge key with some yummy artwork hanging from it.

Have a great day.

Di said...

Hi Lisa - ah, decoupage - fab! So satisfying when it turns out well - make sure you show us the end results.

My card today is one of the trickiest I ever made using decoupage :( Oh, and those wedding invites are finished, plus the rain still piddled on down here all day yesterday :(

Belated Happy WOYWW. Di xx

VonnyK said...

Had a closer look at your photo and the fairies are gorgeous, such vibrant colours. I have the same trouble with ink, I only use it when I have to. I have two printers, one good one with really dear ink and a cheapy with cheaper ink, so I use that until I get it right, then only one print on the dear one.
Have a great week.

Ann B said...

I swapped to the new Blogger a while ago, strange at first but I'm used to it now. Don't know why cutting out is so relaxing but it definitely is so you must be feeling very laid back after all the cutting you have done. Bet the cards are super pretty.

Thanks for visiting yesterday. I'm doing a bit of catching up this morning as it is a very rainy day.

The flower fairy print look so sweet. I am sure my daughter had some books with similar pictures (I might just have to do some photocopying). Enjoy your sour lollies and I agree a drink to imbibe while crafting is always necessary. Sandra #17

Lesley Edmonds said...

I always love to see what you are working on. I have never ventured into creative DVDs as my printer is so rubbish. I would be interested to know which printer you use Lisa...we are long overdue a new one and I'd like to be able to print text onto card stock and to print from CDs

Elizabeth said...

Hi Lisa, love your other desk, lots of lovely light coming through the window. Those fairies are going to keep you occupied for some time to come - look forward to seeing the finished projects. And, before I forget again, love your shabby chick card in the previous post - gorgeous. Weather here is awful again today but the pines are still standing - a bit of a miracle I think as I've heard that down the south of Wales and further there has been some damage done! Thanks for dropping in and leaving a comment. Hope you have a lovely creative week. Elizabeth x #113

Zeffy said...

hi Lisa.love your blogs.I see the fairies have taken over....hope you also have a glass of wine now and again!

Jan McC said...

Seems we all are waiting for you to finish your fairy cards and showing them off. Great work space and I also love the key on the wall. Thanks for your visit. #58

Anne said...

Can't wait to see the finished cards. #121

Neet said...

Those fairy cards look nice - will you show your finished ones please?
Yes, I find Blogger (new) ok but do I really have to tick each comment before it can be published - where is the "All" button? Did you find it?
Sorry I am so late - you will see why in my next WOYWW posting. Thanks for visiting and for sharing. Hugs, Neet #3 xx
ps last call for my blog candy - closes tomorrow

Suzanne said...

Apologies for the late visit to your desk! You seem to be doing better with Blogger than me, hoping to upload what I want this week, rather than what I am able!
I love sweeties too X
