Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope I find you well this Wednesday and if you live on the East coast of the USA, I hope you are slowly emerging from all that snow!!! Nothing like that here, just wind and rain!
I love the fact that Wednesdays are a little trip around the desk world so for my Australian Desk friends, Happy Australia Day for yesterday.

Right onto my desk today. I took this last night but it hasn't changed and isn't likely to today as it's my birthday so I may be busy eating cake.......

I've been asked to make a 50th birthday card and have nearly finished. I just need to find some number stamps to fit in with the design.

Last week I was in the middle of trying to come up with something for my craft ladies so thought I'd share what we did in the end. Thanks as always to Pinterest for inspiring me. They loved playing with the inks and stamps and creating their own backgrounds and every one was different. (Apologies for the poor photo)

Don't forget to share your desk with us by popping over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Well, that's me today. Enjoy what ever you are up to today and Happy Crafting!!

A Bit More Sheena Home Life

Morning all. Well I'm sat here with a yucky cold feeling very cross with myself , in my befuddled state I've just deleted my pending comments by mistake and it doesn't look likes there's any way of recovering them so I'm sorry if your comment has disappeared. I did read them and so appreciate the time you take in leaving them. I shall be more careful in future.

I just wanted to share another sample I made for Sheena's upcoming Create and Crafts shows next week. The first one is 9pm on Monday which means anyone who is normally at work should be able to catch it. My fellow Inkoids have made some stunning samples and if you like baking or gardening, these will be right up your street.

I love this set, the teacup is plain and all the decorations are separate stamps so you can really go to town with the decorations and make them all different.

Right, I'm off to make to make some lemon and honey to ease this raging sore throat so enjoy your Saturday and Happy Crafting!

New Sheena Goodies

Morning lovely crafty friends. Nearly the weekend thank goodness.

I'm just popping by today to share a card I've made with some gorgeous new dies and stamps from Sheena Douglass. She has two sets being launched next week on Create and Craft as a 4 Day Deal starting on Monday at 9pm.

The set I had to work with were all kitchen images and have a real fifties feel. I've loved playing.

This card was made with Distress inks although the jars were coloured with alcohol markers and then clear embossed. It looks quite flat on the photo but irl it is really 3d.

I'll be back soon to share some of the other things I've made so enjoy your Friday and Happy Crafting!

Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope your Wednesday is going well.

Here is my gloomy desk, or rather dining table last night.

I have been trying to come up with a project for my Craft Club this week helped by our kitty, Nerys. An ongoing task which I'm sure any of you who do regular classes will understand. Unfortunately this one didn't make the cut. They want to make a card but coming up with something that a group can all do together is sometimes easier said than done. Still, I have today to play.

We had a surprise fall of snow on Saturday night which looked so pretty on Sunday morning. Thankfully, it didn't last long or cause any disruption.

Our other bit of exciting news is the new addition to the family, 3 year Tibby. Her owner had gone into a Nursing home so she was looking for a new home. She has settled in very well and is a real sweetheart.

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

I'll be back later to see what you've been up to so enjoy your day and Happy Crafting!!

Happy New Year dear WOYWW friends. I hope it's a good one for you with good health & happiness all round.

We've had a bit of a bumpy start to 2016 but fingers crossed it gets better.

I have managed a bit of crafting this week in between getting back to normal.

I needed a new project for my Craft Club ladies on Thursday and found some lovely birdhouse gift boxes on Pinterest so have been making one up so that I can then show them. This was taken last night on the dining table, hence the Christmas table cloth and before you ask, no I hadn't drunk the wine, although it has now gone back in the fridge to be finished off later tonight!! You can just spot the remains of the Christmas cake and my scarf dumped unceremoniously after getting in from work.

Well, that's me this week. If you want to share what you've been up to on your desk with us then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

I might be a bit late getting round to you this week, but bare with me, I will get there.

Enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting.
