What's On My Workdesk Wednesday...

Hi folks...the crafty work list is up to date for this week anyway...I've earned a gold star for my household chores efforts yesterday and hey it's Wednesday...time to head over to Julia's place to join in the fun at WOYWW where lots of lovely crafty folks share their crafty spaces and what they're up to and it's hard to believe we've reached Episode 200 of crafty nosiness already...
So what's on my workdesk today...
I was planning a "join in the fun over at "12 Tags of 2013" kind of a day...I had the necessary bits and pieces looked out in anticipation and I had a sneaky feeling that we might be using the fabulous new Distress Paints but shock horror the King of All Things Distress is also using the new Metallics in the range...naughty naughty man...mine are on order and hopefully winging their way across the pond as we speak but until they arrive..I'm going to have to take a tag raincheck and find something else to play with...decisions...decisions...
But first I need to gather the cubbyhole bouncer crew to serve an eviction notice on a very unwelcome visitor who snuck up on me the other day...totally uninvited the dreaded sniffles arrived and I've now got a nose that Rudolph would be proud of...running like a tap one minute and feeling as though it's stuffed with cotton wool the next...we've enlisted the help of Messrs Neurofen and Hot Lemony Drinks but he sure isn't taking the hint...sneezing for Scotland and papercrafting definitely do not sit well together...don't know how many packs of tissues I've gone through so far...it's drastic measures for sure when a nice ultra soft "kind to the nose" toilet roll has joined the essential cubbyhole tools corner...
See you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

Redanne said...

Hi Kath, I think you likely picked it up at the NEC - so many people and so very cold........ hope you get rid of it soon. I did wonder if the Distress Stains might work.. just a thought. Take care! Hugs, Anne x

rachel said...

I thought to myself - that looks like Tims Tag is going to be made - but you don't have the metallics either? Its a hard thing to have to wait isn't it? I may be trying something else instead!!!Hugs Rachel x

Ria Gall said...

what a shame you have been under the weather, my sister and I have been having the same problem with our noses, it has started getting to me now.

I look forward to seeing your tag once your matalic paints arrive

Enjoy your WOYWW sunny day today

I had this terrible cold a week or so ago but despite streaming at the beginning it did nt last so I hope yours follows the same path. Plenty of hot drinks and rest is the answer.
Shame about the tags, I would just use something else. Must confess I haven't joined in with these this time. No time!
Thanks for your earlier visit,
Hugs

Oh poor you - it's the demo-ing..all those excited breathers surrounding you! Hope you can get it to dry up soon..lots of vaseline round the nose gal! Hope you get a chance to just play - that seems pretty rare on your desk!

Jill said...

Hope you feel better soon Kath! Maybe you will back papercrafting next week! Happy WOW day. Jill x

Shazsilverwolf said...

Glad I am not the only one who resorts to loo roll when I get a cold- the boxes of tissues you get through is ridiculous! Hope you're getting over it now, Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #52 xx

Janene McAnally said...

Oh Kath you made me laugh! I am so sorry to hear about your cold, they always make you feel miserable, nasty little bugs. Believe me I have used toilet paper to when I have run out of tissues lol! Hope you get your metallic distress paints soon and do your tags..looking forward to seeing some :-). Happy WOYWW.

LOL to the loo roll. Funny some of our "essential" supplies. I am so hoping I can avoid my usual spring sinus infection this year but fear it is on it's way. Methinks I need a roll for my desk too.

Happy WOYWW

Best laid plans and all that.... still, means you have a free day now. I'd blame all those chocolate mini eggs for that cold if I were you!!!

I hope you feel better soon. Have fun with those distress paints. I really need to get me some. Happy crafting..#92

Pallavi said...

Get well soon! You've got some crafting to do :) It's funny to see toilet paper on the craft table. I had baby wipes and my friend came over yesterday and she was just staring at em I told her its for cleaning my stamps lol. Hope you have a lovely woyww!

Paula (PEP) said...

Uh oh, do take care & hope you're feeling in top form again very soon.

Almo said...

Hi Kath, Yes naughty Timmy he forgets us poor folk across the pond are a little behind when it comes to new ranger stash. I think I will use metallic distress stains or maybe my metallic eco-paints. Have a lovely day Hugs Mo x

SueH said...

Tissues on my desk too this week Kath, it seems that everyone is coming down with the lurgies. Hope you’re feeling better soon.
Trust the master himself to have the audacity to use something on his tags that you don’t have yet and how frustrating that you have to wait now to make them. I’m sure you’ve found something else to play with while you wait though.
Happy Crafting!

Oh how disappointing, I scrolled down your post anxious to see what you did with those lovely tag making goodies ... hey ho I guess I'll have to await your postie along with you. LOL Hope your bug leaves very soon. Happy 200th Wednesday. :o)

Allergies are all the rage here as the oak count is 13,454 what ever that means. The medication cost for it require a bank loan so asking the doctor for something packed in less than the latest gizmo that squirts the correct dosage. The new mettalics will raise your spirits and will arrive soon.

Claire said...

i just love the clarity of your photos, kath! and i love the scrummy colours waiting to be released...
thank you for dropping by already and leaving a lovely comment!
happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week :)

Hope you're feeling better soon!!!!!

MaggieC said...

I lost track of the number of boxes of extra soft balm tissues I got through over the last month, plus paracetamol and lots of lemon and honey drinks, together with antihistamines to counteract the catarrh and sinus problems. Mine has lasted a month so far, so I hope you get rid a bit quicker than that. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. Have a good week playing with your new goodies. Keep warm and cosy. xx Maggie #16

Kat said...

Hi Kath, hope you manage to shake off your nasty sniffles before the Retreat weekend.

I've just been catching up with what you've been up to after being without broadband since last weekend. I've been too fed up to do anything except knit or crochet so it's great to see what everyone's been up to!

Kat xx

fairy thoughts said...

Oh dear sorry to hear you have got the dreaded lurgy. Maybe you should just play with your paints anyway, just substitute the paint colours and see what happens

Spyder said...

I haven't any of those paints, are they any different than other paints (coz I g=have loads of them,) but you always think you need something else and those little bottles look like they hold magic! Hope you're feeling a lot better and your goodies arrive soon...Have a great crafty week!

Hi Kath (and Buddy). He's such a handsome dog! Muffin and Katie send their love.

I was so excited to see your supply of Distress Paints and to see how you used them. Once you get the metallics you'll have to show us -- oh please!!!

I've been fighting allergies so I sympathize with your cold.

Happy WOYWW

G'day Kath

It's official; I've adopted better late than never as my personal creed. I hope by now you have banished the sniffles and cleared up some more real estate on your desk. No fun to be sick. Ugh.
I chuckled at your comments about Tim's April tag; quite close to my own sentiments!
See you in a couple of days.
