Morning dear WOYWW friends. I hope I find you well and happy this Wednesday morning.

Here's my desk this morning.

I'm having a play with a new stamp I bought back in the spring that hasn't seen ink up to now and have been trying to colour her with some watercolour pencils. DD thinks she looks sad, that's probably something to do with my colouring, I'm not sure. She is going to go on a hanging heart hopefully. An idea I found on Pinterest. What would we do without Pinterest when Mr Mojo deserts us?

We had a lovely day out on Bank Holiday Monday to a local National Trust house, Beningborough Hall near York. The weather was beautiful and so were the gardens.

I loved these old boots in the potting shed, they look well loved.

And a tea pot made from blue pottery at the entrance to the café.

I mentioned last time that we were nervously waiting for exam results. Well, I'm delighted to say that DD did amazingly well in her GCSE's and we are very proud of her. She is now looking forward to doing her chosen A'Levels, Art, Photography, Maths and Ethics.

Sorry I didn't manage to get round many desks last week, despite my good intentions. I will do better this week. If you want to share your desk with us, then pop over to WOYWW headquarters and link up with the lovely Julia.

Have a lovely Wednesday whatever you are up too and Happy Crafting!!

Morning everyone from an extremely wet Yorkshire today . I don't think much of this summer weather to be honest with you!! I bet when the schools go back it'll be gorgeous again.

Well here is my desk this morning.

On the dining table as it's perfect to be able to pick up and put down when I have a minute or the weather is too rubbish to be able to go out. A bag of pick "n" mix have been helping the creative juices!

I'm in the middle of using up some scraps from a recent scrapbook session...waste not want not.
We'll see where it goes, I'm just playing really.

Hubby asked me for a "new home" card for a work colleague at the weekend and this is what I came up with. Ended up making a few as I'd made quite a large piece of the background so felt quite productive.

It's been awhile since I've managed to join in with you deskers, the summer holidays have been pretty busy, but in a good way.

We had a fabulous 2 weeks in Greece, beautiful scenery, people, weather and food and came back feeling totally refreshed and revived.

And last week we enjoyed a great day with family and friends at my Nephews wedding. My DD is looking all grown up in the bright pink on the right.

We are now waiting with baited breath for GCSE results tomorrow. I'm not sure whose more nervous!!  I remember mine all too clearly, it was not pretty, lol.

Well, if you want to join in with the wonderful desk hop that is WOYWW pop over to see Julia and link up.

I'm on my way to see what you've all been up to while I've been away so enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting!
