Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope you are well this damp Wednesday morning.I so enjoyed being back amongst you all last week that I think I visited every desk (almost) last week which has to be a first for me. I aim to continue the good work this week.

So, here is my desk yesterday afternoon, it hasn't changed since.

Please excuse the toothbrush charging!!!! I have been playing with some Christmas ideas but haven't got very far as I'm now back to some DT work so it's a case of "hold that idea" until I can get back to it. I love that Christmas paper, it's so nice it's hard to cut into.

Just to give you another view, this is the view from where I sit at my desk. This cabinet contains all my loose 12x12 paper but as you can see there is much more piled on top including my bin, can you spot a theme here.

Lastly, Jan shared a beautiful photo of her Kaffir Lillies last week, which are one of my favourite flowers at this time of year. They flower forever. As well as the red ones, I have these beautiful pale pink ones.

And while I was out with my camera yesterday afternoon I snapped these beauties especially for Sandra who has been painting violets. I discovered the little perennial violas this year. These have flowered their heads off non stop since I bought them in March and their scent is amazing. I hope to add to my collection next year.

Well that's me this week. If you want to share your crafty space, then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Have a lovely Wednesday and Happy Crafting.

Hello dear WOYWW friends. Yes, I know, it's been an age again. I didn't realise how long until I started receiving emails from desker friends checking if I was still here. I have been having a little break from my DT duties and have been enjoying playing in my garden and just crafting for myself so I've been loathed to waste my precious time on the computer and believe me I can lose hours when I log on!!!!!!! Does that make sense?

Anyway, you came by to see a desk and a desk you shall have.

I took this yesterday afternoon. I've got a couple of requests for cards that I needed to get done and I have been giving my cuttlebug a thorough work out. I don't know what I'd do without my trusty 'bug! I'm in the middle of a baby card here and this is how it turned out.

Just to show you how small my crafty space is and how full it is, I turned round and took a photo of the space looking the other way.

One day I will disappear under it all when all the piles piled on top of other piles all topple's only a matter of time. One day I will have a revamp and try to improve the storage I have. The daft thing is I know where everything is.

Well, that's me this week. I look forward to seeing what you've all been up too while I've been away.

If you want to share your desk with a lot of like minded people, then pop over to see the Desk Headmistress, the lovely, Julia, HERE.  

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
