What's On My Workdesk Wednesday...

Hi folks...it's Wednesday and the make-over is in full swing with the house full of hunky joiners causing a bit of a distraction so I'm in need of something to focus my attentions back to the crafty stuff...a trip over to hang out with Julia and her WOYWW buddies and a Timmie Tag may just be what I need and just the thing to give my new Non-Stick workdesk it's first ever messy road-test.
but before I share how the make-over magic is coming along...it's time to announce the winner of the "Squidgy Pins Give-Away"...
please e-mail me with your address Rachel and your parcel of Squidgy Pins will be popping through your letterbox soon. By the way...I'm still waiting for my Monthly Monday Ribbon Girl Give-Away to be claimed...will re-draw if it isn't claimed by Friday.
So the lowdown on the make-over...let's just say I'm bearing up under the strain of having the house full of testosterone and also excited to see that it's slowly beginning to look like a house again instead of a DIY war zone...oh yes we have doors...

and how cool is this...the ultimate in boys' toys...a cool radio/power tool charger...
for someone who's used to working away in the cubbyhole with only my Furry Boy for company...I'm loving  the free built-in entertainment of dulcet toned joiners singing along to all the latest hits with the distant drumbeat of nail guns and hammers as an accompaniment. I'll see you all tomorrow with hopefully a completed tag...that is if I'm not too distracted by my very own version of  Take That.
Hugs Kath xxx

Your posts bring a smile to my face every day. Love your cards but it's the other 'life' events that make me chuckle out loud. You must be one fun lady to be around. Looking forward to your next testosterone updates! Lol x

Sounds like you are having way too much fun

trish said...

Hi Kath, congrats to Rachel and to you for making such a lovely job painting all that walls. It all looks so new and clean, you must be fair chuffed that it's almost finished. I haven't tried any of these distress paints yet, they look lush though...Trish

Karen Ives said...

Kath I just love your blog, you make everything so interesting and fun and I just have to get one of those crafty mats. Thanks for making me smile.

Julia Dunnit said...

OOh I have first hand experience of a hunky joiner! Well done you - it can seem like a slow process can't it, but look the results are wonderful! Hope the non stick surface is a hit...what a great idea.

Diane Henry said...

I look forward to you daily blog. You make me smile, I so enjoy your creativness. I love your tag, I'm going home to try and make one. Coping your idea of course.
Can I ask a question - what is a joiner? I'm from the mitten state Michigan,US.
thanks so much
ps can you give the furry friend a hug for me?

Diane Henry said...

Can I ask a question, wht is a joiner?

Darnell J Knauss said...

Too funny, Kath! You are inspiring! I'd be blowing my brains out from the kakaphony of noise and you're rolling with it! It's coming along brilliantly!

Speaking of brilliant, your tags, which I saw on the way in, are outstanding!!

Happy Belated Woyww! Hope the rest of your week is wonderful! Darnell #61
