WOYWW et al.

Wednesday again! Gosh, it really does come around quick. So here's my desk for this week....

So, on my desk today is what is left over from designing my stuff for the Blog Hop my SU blog took part in on Saturday. PLUS I also made some Mother's day cards and a birthday card to match. Well, the stuff was all there so I just went with the flow! If you'd like to look at the projects I did for the blog hop then pop over to my other blog and have a peek. I'm quite pleased with my finished projects, but not so happy with the photo's. I took them in a hurry and only later realised that there was definitely something weird happening as they're a) shining and b) ghosting. To all you photography bods.... maybe you could advise me how to NOT take pictures like that again? It would be much appreciated!

Also, I thought you'd maybe like to see what was in that little box I had on my desk about 2 weeks ago? This one! Well, here's the finished project which I'm now advertising as classes. We haven't had the class yet as it's scheduled for next week so I'm hoping it will go well. I thought you might like to see what was hidden inside though. As for the project I had hidden on my desk back on the 9th March, well it still isn't properly finished! I've had to put it to one side as I got stuck into prepping for classes, workshops, team training events (this coming weekend) and blog hops! There's not much chance of it being finished anytime soon either as I've got more workshops and classes coming up, PLUS I've been commissioned to do a 12x12 album! Eeek!! So I'm afraid that an update on that particular project will be .... erm, somewhat delayed. LOL. Still, it's good to be busy!

Have you joined in with WOYWW this week? No? Quickly take a picture of your desk and then pop into Julia's blog and let us have a peek too!! If you have then leave a comment and let me know which desk is yours and I'll pop by in a bit to have a peek.

Thanks for your comments! I love reading them all!!


  1. Lovely busy desk Anthea. The whole photo thing is hard and really bad light in the winter, so my hubby made a light box out of white foamboard sheets with lights pointing in, works really well.
