What a Midden...

Morning folks...what a difference a day makes...the workdesk has gone from military precision kitting mode to what can only be described as a MIDDEN....abandoned last night at late o'clock after a day kicking some ideas around for my Tim Holtz Masterclass at The Papeterie on 28th July...



But I need to get a wiggle on and get tidied up before the grandkiddies arrive for their sleep over...after the torrential downpours of yesterday and today doesn't look much better...I hope they've packed their wellies.
And for those of you who are not familiar with the word "midden" official translation coming up...
"dung heap or cess pit...popular insult in the North of Ireland and Scotland and often used to describe any slovenly mess including persons"
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Your sneak peeks look awesome, I wish I didn't live so far away! And thanks for the translation of the word midden, I'll add it to my compulsory vocabulary for next terms English students. :)

Goodness Kath, that is how my lovely Scottish Dad used to describe our bedrooms when we were kids! He's been gone awhile so it was lovely to hear it used again. I would say your desk looks productive rather than midden-like. Hope you have a lovely time with the kiddywinks and that the sun shines for you all. Crafty hugs, Anne x

Love your midden Kate and that's how a desk sould be when you have had a very productive day. Your sneak peeks look fabulous, You will see four of the Huntly hooligans on Friday!

Alexandra said...

Thanks for the sneak peaks, looking good.
I wish my midden looked as good. I've new stuff piled on my desk for the past coulple of weeks. No room to play as haven't sorted a home for them yet, so my creativity has followed me downstairs while I close the door on my midden craft room.

I don't say this lightly: that ATC with the long-petaled flower belongs in an art museum. Breathtaking.

Looks like you had fun with your Timmie goodies. My table often looks like a midden. No wonder I never get out the bit!

Susan and I made it to Oldmeldrum at last and had a small spend. Then I made Apricot chutney. Can still smell it everywhere!!

Hope you've had a lovely day with the grandkids and fingers crossed the sleepover is uneventful!
