Morning dear WOYWW friends. Another week has flown by so here is my desk this morning.

Thought I'd give you a large view this morning so you can see the mess I work in!!

I'm making some cards using up some papers DD had and was getting rid of during a recent clear out as they are too young for her now. I rescued them as I thought they'd make great children's cards.Two 6x6 sheets have made 4 cards so that's stocked my box up a bit.

It's embarrassing the amount of stuff that is all over the place. I don't notice it when I'm busy, but stopping to look at it now makes me cringe. At least the important things are there, like a cup of tea and my music!!

Well, that's me today, if you want to share your crafty space with us on WOYWW then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE. 

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!!

Morning dear WOYWW friends. It's that lovely time of week when it's time to catch up with desk friends old and new. I hope find you well this morning. It's a dry start here in Yorkshire, but not as sunny as yesterday.

Here's my desk today.

I am in the middle of organising a project for my May craft club. It's going to be a Neverending Card. The first time I tried it I needed a bit of help from my other half  with the folding, I just couldn't get my head round the instructions, but having done it once, it's easy and the result is great fun. I've really enjoyed decorating it. I hope my ladies enjoy it as much.

Here's the front and one of the insides so far.

We have been so lucky with the weather over the Easter holidays, we are all back at school, and work now but made the most of our time off.

Last weekend we had a lovely day out at Malham Cove which is a local beauty spot. The weather was stunning and so was the scenery.

Well, that's me this week, if you want to join in with the weekly desk hope called WOYWW, then pop over to see Julia HERE.

Thanks for popping by and Happy Crafting!!

Morning deskers. I hope I find you well this Wednesday.  We are now on our Easter Hols and the weather has been lovely so not a lot of crafting has been happening, we've been out and about and in the garden but here's my dining table desk this morning.

I have been doing a bit of scrapbooking, working my way through the mountains of photos we have and really enjoying it. I decided to move downstairs so as not to be antisocial when the family are around.

The funny thing is I was listening to country music the other evening and noticed the paper I'm using has cowboy boots on it, must have been some subliminal messages going on in my brain.

Well, that's me, short and sweet this week. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've all been up too.

If you want to join in with this desk hop, then pop over to see Julia at WOYWW headquarters, HERE.

Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Morning lovely WOYWW friends. Here we are at Wednesday again, where do the weeks go? It's a bit of a damp one here in Yorkshire this morning but after the gorgeous weekend, I'm not complaining. I hope any WOYWWer's who are in Queensland have come through that awful storm safe and sound.

Here's my desk this morning.

 A bit of a mess after a crafting session yesterday. I just finished and walked away, which is unusual for me as I like to tidy up between projects. I guess that'll be the first job today. I was asked to make a leaving card for a lady at work and was just finishing it off with some ink and gilding wax last night, listening to some music. I escape for an hour every evening while my other half has his daily dose of Star Trek after tea!!

This is the finished card

I found so many half done things during my recent craft room spring clean and am determined to finish some of them now I have a bit more time. This was the first one that finally got completed last weekend. A little felt cushion I did as a Craft Club project last year. It now sits on our bed, a much better place than in bits in a drawer. One down, many more to go!!

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

Enjoy your Wedensday and Happy Crafting!

Morning lovely WOYWWers from a chilly Yorkshire this morning. What happened to Spring? We had four seasons in one day yesterday, snow, hail, wind and brilliant sunshine!!!

Anyway, it's just grey and cold this morning so here's my desk.

I am in the middle of making Easter cards. Nor something I used to do but after someone pointed out that although I don't send them, plenty do, it's now one of my busiest times. I sold all the ones I've made up to now and have an order for 4 more so it's keeping me busy. As you can see lots of cutting out happening.

Here's one I made yesterday.

Along with my Mother's Day cards

I had a snazzy new camera for Christmas and have had little chance to try it out so I took it in the garden yesterday when the sun was out to capture the cheerful colour that is appearing.

The happy Tete a Tete daffodils nodding their heads in the wind.

My white Camellia for once unblemished by frost and turning brown. It was looking lovely but that might not be the case after the cold night we've just had.

Tibby was keeping a eye on what I was up too and enjoying the fresh air.

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

I have a morning of appointments with my Mum so hopefully will be round to see what you've been up to this afternoon.

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope I find you well this Wednesday. It's a lovely morning here in Yorkshire. Spring is definitely in the air.

Here's my desk this morning.

At last I have managed to do a bit of something crafty. I have long wanted to have a go at art journalling and saw many pages being created on your desks last week so it kick started me into having a go. It's definitely a work in progress but it's been fun learning what works and what doesn't. I have done a double page and like one side but not the other, but hey, that's the whole point of playing isn't it?

Someone asked last week what the green jar is on my desk. It's my water jar that has had powertex put on it and then painted.

Well, that's me this week. If you want to join in with our WOYWW desk hop, then pop over to see Julia, HERE.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Morning dear WOYWW friends. It's so good to be joining in with you today. I've missed my Wednesday desk hop and keeping in touch with you deskers. I've been working full time since Christmas and so had little or no crafty time and so nothing to share with you but things are back to normal now, back to part time, which is lovely and means I've got time to craft and to desk hop again.

Saying all that, there's not much to show on my desk this morning, apart from the new Shabby Chic papers from Sara Davies. I couldn't resist them, they are gorgeous. I've left them to have a play with later..

I decided to have a Spring Clean, not that you can see much sign of it, but believe me, the fact that you can see the floor is huge!!!

I still have a bit to do, but moved on to the rest of the house. We have cleared so much rubbish from the loft, cupboards and under beds, it's unbelievable. I am determined to hoard no more!!

So that's me today, short and sweet. Hopefully, next week I'll have some actual craft to share with you too, so I'm going to get a fresh cup of tea and then come round to see what you've all been up too.

If you fancy sharing your desk with some like minded people, then pop over to see Julia HERE.

Have a great Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

WOYWW 396-Hello 2017

Afternoon dear WOYWW friends. A very Happy New Year to you all. Lets hope 2017 is going to be kind to us!!

I'm a bit late today but here never the less desk today...busy taking down the decorations...but here's our desk yesterday.

My DD was still on holiday and had some GCSE art homework to do and was stuck for ideas so we kicked around some things together. Her theme is Masks so we had a play with my Brushos. She did her version and I did mine and we had a lot of fun crafting together. I asked her whether she thought her teacher would mark my version too, lol.

At the end of last year I stood down from my Design Team duties to concentrate on other things, one of them being to try and improve my painting skills. I have so much to learn but this is my first attempt.

I have decided to mix my painting attempts with my stamps as that is my real love and although the painting has a long way to go I quite like the mix. I think it's going to be an interesting journey and one I'm looking forward to spending time on.

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

I hope the first Wednesday of the year has been a good one for you.

Happy Crafting!
