What's On My Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...it's Wednesday and time for all us nosey-parkers to join in the fun over at the first WOYWW of 2012...so what's on my workdesk today....well I have a confession to make...absolutely NOTHING because I've been struggling to get back to the CRAFTY WORK STUFF but TODAY is definitely going to be THE DAY...no more procrastination...it's big girl knicker time....with serious Fiskars deadlines haunting my every waking hour...I need to give myself a proverbial kick up the butt...ditch the lame excuses of being laid low with the cold or gallivanting off to crafty sales and catching up with friends...it's time to clock on and get CRAFTING.
And the strangest thing...although I was almost at death's door with that dreaded cold...OK slightly exaggerating there...I somehow managed to drag myself to the cubbyhole and spend some time doing PLAY stuff...the Aide Memoire is finished and hanging above my desk in the cubbyhole...



now there is no excuse for turning up at the dentist on the wrong day...
I know it's a bit of a thought to return to work after the Christmas Holidays but hey all that lazing around and stuffing my face has taken it's toll...the old digestive system doth protest and will be mightily relieved to be returning to sensible rations...in fact right this minute I never want to see another chocolate or liquorice allsort again...I wonder how long that will last. Catch up with you all tomorrow....in the meantime batten down the hatches and stay safe in this horrendous weather that's hitting the UK.
Hugs Kath xxx

Love it Kath - looks fabulous.

Know what you mean about the sweet stuff - I have totally overdone the eating rubbish this year. I thought I was being clever not buying in chocs this year but we were given loads as presents and no I couldn't resist them LOL!!

Hope you manage to knuckle down and 'work' today.

Carol D said...

Good morning Kath, hope your cold gets better soon, you know what they say about feeding a cold, perhaps they mean with salads and fruit etc.
Love your memory keeper it's fab, just wish I had some wall space in my craft room.

Have a good day

Big Hugs Carol xx

Helen said...

I haven't stopped eating the sweet stuff yet - I love it - but know just where you're coming from! I want to get back to crafting too, will have to see when the mood grabs me! Happy WOYWW.

Paula (PEP) said...

That is just glorious Kath - I had no idea what you were up to but I see now. The spots, checks & gingham really make it so cohesive & I love that little bird who's managed to escape his cage - is there some significance to thef act that the dentist reminder is where the door might be positioned? Hope you get stuck in OK - I'm still tidying the decks but gradually seeing more working space.
Much calmer here down south today - take care & you always make me smile over my porridge & mug of tea.

Cuddle for Buddy too.

Gorgeous creation Kath, very eye catching. Carolxx

sandra de said...

Love, love, love your memory aide. Although forgeting the dentist can be excused. Best of luck staying off the sweets although I have already seen the beginnings of easter chocolates. So what chance have we got?

Ann Rosie said...

Gorgeous Kath - what a lovely and original gift. I just need to get my bum in gear and get a visit to you arranged and then you can add a little date card for me!

Hugs

Hi Kath
I love this project so useful. I know what you mean, if I see another chocolate I think I will scream (well for a week anyway). A nice salad for tea tonight.
Have a good day and wrap up warm xx

Pamela said...

It's just beautiful Kath! It must brighten up the cubby hole no end. Not fed up of sweeties - just food!

May said...

Love this great creation, It will look great in the cubbyhole, good luck with the deadlines, can't wait to see your creations Hugs May x x x x

Irene said...

I saw the question somewhere else to but could you share with us where you bought the bird cage, I LOVE it!!!!
DON't talk to me about liquorice.....have you ever tasted the Dutch ones Kath?? It is no doubt the BEST worldwide, just ask expats what they long for if they are far from home!!!! I know where my big bum is coming from lol!

Hug and get well soon, Irene

NGCARDS said...

Oooh this is a fantastic creation hun! xxx

Cathy said...

Happy WOYWW

craftyfoxglove said...

Wow, I love the memo holder! It's more a piece of wall art. Glad to hear you're feeling better and are getting your mojo back. Just ate the last of the liquorice as I sit here, and have said a teary bye bye to my daughter who is travelling back to Edinburgh. Now I need to find the antacids!.... Love Val

butlersabroad said...

Oh the dreaded tins of chocolate! We stopped buying them for just that reason! But we make so many little treats, tarts, mince pies and Christmas cake etc that we just have to eat, well, we may as well have stuck to the choccies! Love the new wall art, great idea.

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

Love your aide memoir it is fabulous. Know what you mean about getting back into it all, mind I have no deadlines, other than those of my own making! I am still trying to find half the things in the front room where they got shoved over the festive period.......... Happy New Year x

Sandy said...

This is absolutely grand - I love it and it is so happy to hang above one's desk. I love following your blog dear heart!!
Sandy

Tertia said...

Love that wall hanging! I could seriously do with one of those.
We are having a terrible heat wave. I felt like I could not breathe this afternoon. If I send you some heat, will you send some cold weather?
Happy WOYWW

Kat said...

Wow Kath your Aide Memoire looks fantastic. Isn't Anne clever to know exactly what kind of present to give you.

I've been managing to craft so far but I'd like to try to get my DT card done for Saturday and another card for someone who asked for a male and a female birthday card so I can give her a choice!

Back to work today and day off tomorrow. Getting my eyes tested in Aberdeen so that should be fun not to mention expensive!

Kat xx

Sharne Davies said...

i am with you fed up with chocolate, cake etc.......but love your work. Happy New Year and heres to a crafty one. XSharne (fresh as a daisy)

Enfys said...

I love this Kath, creative as always. You always make me think 'now why didn't I think of that!'
I have a terrible cold as well, totally flaked out, got it from Monty, but I love him to bits so will forgive him.
luv
En xx

Julia Dunnit said...

Love the aide memoirs, what a great idea. Now, just apply that to the Fiskars stuff and it's a good job! Ah big girl knickers, I do have to use them rather. More often than I'd like!! As for the chicks...do the work first and then treat yourself!

pooky said...

Wow! your aid memoire is gorgeous!! Are those Wendy Vecchi parts? What a nifty idea! Tfs!

Yours Artfully said...

Happy New Year Kath. I've been absent from the WOYWW game for quite some time so it's great to be back and doing a bit of snooping around crafty dens. Love your birdcage noticeboard thingy.....everyone should have one of those!!!!

Hazel said...

This is a wonderful project (Hazel, WOYWW 108) x

Katie said...

I love this! What an adorable way to keep all those little papers off the fridge (or the desk, table and counter if you are in my house!)

Kath I love your Aide Memoire, its amazing :) I am glad you are feeling a bit better now and I hope you manage to get some crafting started!

Sorry I am a bit late in visiting this week but I hope you had a great WOYWW, Karen xx (#108)

Desirée-ScrapDees said...

you finished it, how lovely!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Such a lovely art piece! And useful too. Thanks for sharing.

Elizabeth said...

Oh, know exactly what you mean by over-indulgence - had to cut all sugar based stuff out altogether pretty soon after Christmas :( Love your note board, it's not only decorative but useful too. Weather improved down here today, just dull with a light breeze and just for a few moments there was a brief glimpse of blue sky through the clouds this morning. All the best for 2012.
