What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks....yes it's Wednesday already and you know what that means....time for all us crafters to play along at WOYWW....I must confess that I am becoming addicted to nosing around in other folks' crafty spaces..and it's all down to Julia....the lovely lady who came up with this brilliant idea.
So what's on my workdesk today.....first thing this morning or the middle of the night for some of you depending on what time you roll out of bed was my yummy box of DT goodies from Craftwork Cards and I'm all set to get started on a TOP SECRET project....ooh I do love secrets especially when I know what the secret is....


and it isn't long before I am ripping into packs of deliciousness....scattering them everywhere....all in the name of what is commonly known as "having a play".  
and it's not fun unless there is a messy inky session about to happen
and maybe a little bit of sewing thrown in for good measure
A big thank you to all the lovely nosey folks who have been leaving comments each week...I wish I could visit you all but blimey there are now hundreds joining in and it's comforting to know that you are suffering from the same noseyitis...and speaking of addictions...lots of you have been leaving comments on how tidy the cubbyhole is.....well it's time to come clean (forgive that awful pun).....I am a bit of a neat freak....oh yes I've won many Gold Medals in the Neat Freak Olympics...have been crowned the "I Hate Clutter" Queen" umpteen times...a real "A Place for Everything and Everything in It's Place" kind of a girl.....when you're an obsessed collector of crafty stuff it helps to know where you can find it at a moment's notice... but I've learned to tolerate the crafty mess helped along by oodles of calming coffee and the knowledge that I can tidy it all up when I'm finished with the help of good old Mr D....strange how this neat freaky thing doesn't seem to apply to the rest of the house.    Now that I have unburdened my guilty secret.....I need to crack on...I am off out this afternoon to have some fun with the Pink Ladies at Simply Create.....and a bit of news....Jacqui has a Design Team Call out at the moment.....click HERE for the details

Laura said...

You have a great area for crafting, I try to be tidy but I am no neat freak! I love the sewing on cards, I have tried it once, but getting the machine out for me is akin to housework!

Linda Elbourne said...

Lots of loveliness going on here ... I LOVE secrets too ... when I know what they are of course ... so if you could just whisper it to me :0)

Lora said...

I am so jealous of your crafty cubbyhole! I don't have a craft room so have to keep my stuff in boxes and put everything away when I am finished. I have tried convincing the kids to give up one of their bedrooms so I can turn it into a craft room but they just won't give into me lol.
Thanks for the ribbon, it arrived this morning :)
Hugs Lora x

Hi Kath if you are going to Michaels make sure you register with them online as they quite often send out 50% of vouchers and I found that when I used this in the shop they gave me another 40% off voucher so had to keep buying more!!
