Morning lovely WOYWW friends from a very sunny Yorkshire this morning. I have washing out and intend to get out there myself after I have shared my desk with you lovely lot.

I have things drying on it this morning. I have been asked to make a Golden Wedding card by a friend so thought I'd make an exploding box, I haven't made one of those for years and always enjoy them although there is a lot of measuring and cutting out, not my strong point. There's also a bookmark card in progress, a project for Craft Club next month and a new set of dies I picked up at The Works. They are such a good price and this one is all foliage so I know it'll get lots of use, it already has!!

Here's a close up of the box so far. I have the sentiment panels to put on the sides but the hard work is done. I hope she likes it.

Like the rest of the country, we had amazing weather at the end of last week and not much of anything was done except sitting out and enjoying it.

Here's a peek at summer in The Craft Garden.

Thank you so much for the ATC's that have arrived so far from Margaret, Shaz, Jo and Annie. It's been such a joy to receive little envelopes of happiness.

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

I am looking forward to coming by to see what you've all been up to so enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Good Morning gentle deskers on a sunny morning here in Yorkshire. Happy 8th Anniversary to you all and especially Julia for keeping us all in order for so many years. The world would be an even darker place if we didn't have the lovely friendships that have been built from the simple pleasure of sharing a craft desk.

Nothing at all on my desk today

The weather has been so lovely I've been outside rather than crafting and after the tragic events of Monday night, I haven't been in the right frame of mind. It's been all too close to home. We have people missing from town and still no news and having a teenage daughter myself, I just can't bear what has happened. It's so so sad. All my love and prayers are with everyone in this part of the world.

To remind us that there is still beauty in the world I wanted to share my other desk with you today, my outside desk. Lots in the greenhouse waiting to be planted out.

The garden is looking lush and green.

This gorgeous rose has been flowering for a couple of weeks now and it smells wonderful.

If you want to join in with the lovely world of WOYWW, then pop over to see Julia. HERE.

I am joining in with the ATC swap and have mine ready to go. I do have a few spare so if anyone would like to swap, please drop me an email, *sorry to those who tried to email, I put a rougue dot in the address, must have been half asleep when I typed this!!

Enjoy you Wednesday, whatever you are up too.

Morning lovely WOYWW friends. It's a wet day here today in Yorkshire which the garden is very grateful for. I've been watering the pots for weeks now, I can't remember having to do it so early before.

I took the photo of my desk yesterday evening, hence the sunshine.

I thought I'd give you a slightly different angle to share a bit more of the chaos as there's not much happening on the actual desk. A bit more card making and some ATC's hiding away from WOYWW eyes!!!!

I have been busy elsewhere though. This is especially for LLJ. Look what I've bought!!!!!!

I thought it was time to be a grown up and stop relying on my Mum to alter and take up my clothes and I can also use it on my paper crafting so it's a win win all round. It's only a very basic model but I wouldn't be able to cope with anything more complicated,lol.

And for my lovely friend Sandra, who paints the most exquisite flowers, I thought you'd like this tulip I photographed in my garden. It's such a delicate shade of pink, more like a rose than a tulip. I love it.

Well, that's me this week, we are a revision household at the moment, GSCE's and all that, so I shall be round very quietly to see what you've all been up too.

If you want to join in with the WOYWW desk hop, then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy your Wednesday.

Happy Crafting!

Morning dear WOYWW friends from a beautiful, sunny Yorkshire this Wednesday morning. I've had my breakfast outside and got my bedding on the line so now it's time to sit down and catch up with you lovely lot.

Here's my desk this morning.

I finished a scrapbook page last night and left it to dry over night. I've scrapbooked for years but have recently discovered Gabrielle Pollocco's utube tutorials and have learnt so many different things to try, it's really kick started my mojo again. There are also some new stamps waiting to be played with. I'm hoping to use them in my art journalling. which was my plan for today but while the sun's shining I'll be outside!!

Here's a close up of my scrapbook page.

And also one of the cards I was making last week.

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

Have a lovely day and thanks for popping by.

Happy Crafting!!
