What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks....it's Wednesday once again and that means time to play along at WOYWW....a chance to have a snoop around lots of crafty workspaces...mind you I don't think I will be able to do much snooping for the next few days.....I am knee deep in kitting for my two workshops coming soon at Simply Create and with 28 lovely crafters to kit for....I suspect I am going to be kept busy.


336 small snowflakes to punch 

140 large snowflakes to die cut

Circles to die cut and punch

An evening spent in front of the TV tracing templates....cutting ribbon and cord and hey ho.....one kit completed only 27 to go and that is just for the first project.....so today it will be starting all over again for Project No 2 which is easier...just a template to trace.....thank goodness for that

and of course I couldn't do it without these guys.....

and my trusty X-Cut Guillotine....a real workhorse who cuts through 4 sheets of 300gsm cardstock like a hot knife through butter.   And boy oh boy did I sleep well last night....in fact I think I had dropped off before my head hit the pillow...nothing like a hard day's work to send you off into dreamland.  
But it wasn't all work in the cubbyhole yesterday.....my lovely buddy Debbi popped in for a coffee and a chat and then surprise surprise.....we had another two very special visitors.....Anne and her gorgeous granddaughter Lily who was rather taken with The Furry Boy and vice versa....but try getting two live wires to stay still long enough to get a photo.....they do say never work with children and animals and I can see why.
Will be back later with Inspired By You Take No 3 and I wonder what the lovely Jill has created for us today but before I start work for the day....Mr Dyson needs to deal with the floor in the cubbyhole which looks as though there has been a mega snowfall overnight.

  31. The pieces for the kits are a lovely inspiration all by themselves! Honest, while I'm punching and counting I often wonder why I do it - but then I get there and remember how fun it all is!
