What's on my Workdesk Wednesday

Morning folks...I'm back in the cubbyhole and haven't got out of first gear yet....still not feeling too good but putting a brave face on it between all the coughing and spluttering....totally confused about what day of the week it is but after a quick check of the calendar...hey it's Wednesday and you know what that's time to share with all the lovely crafters over at WOYWW....what's on my workdesk today.

look what arrived in the cubbyhole just in time for Christmas....

the fabulous first-ever CD Rom from Craftwork Cards featuring 34 unique craft projects from the mega talented girls on the Design Team....a real must have folks....guaranteed to inspire your passion for all the gorgeous products from  Craftwork Cards.....all for just £ can BUY IT HERE I've had great fun browsing with a cuppa....loads of inspiration and fabulous ideas to kick start your after Christmas crafting.
I definitely need something to kick start the old crafty brain and as per usual it's going to be a skidding in by the seat of my pants effort....a training project to do for Fiskars by the end of this week using these.....

and there is not even one little idea roaming around in my befuddled head...Mr Mojo hasn't returned from his Christmas holidays and The Furry Boy is still recovering from his overload of turkey it looks as though I'm on my own...time to put the kettle on and hope that I am struck by a lightning bolt of crafty inspiration sooner rather than later. I haven't forgotten about the give-away....The Furry Boy will be having a root around in the cubbyhole once he manages to drag himself from his cosy's a dog's life right enough.

Hugs Kath xxx
Edited to add: to answer Marion's comment....I hope that you are not trying to use the Shape Cutter templates on your Shapeboss....the two just don't go together.   The Shape Cutter will only work on the Fiskars Cutting Mat and the Shapeboss is intended for embossing only with the Shapeboss stencils.   If you are still having problems with your Shapecutter Marion....e-mail me and I will try to help.


  1. Hope you start to feel better soon Kath.

  7. Some fab craft stuff there and a fluffy dog too !!

  8. Hi Kath, Hope you get better sooner rather than later. Training program, with that top item I will wish you luck. I have this system and not very impressed with it. When pegged on base you can't turn the circle cutter fully to cut some of the shapes out. Will be interesting to see how you get on with it.

  9. Oooo lots to play with then Kath! Hope your rarin to go soon, maybe a dog nap with Buddy will send thos pesty bugs packing. ~Take care. Carolxx

  10. Sorry you are still not feeling well. What an adorable photo of Buddy, just want to give him a big cuddle. Hope you feel better soon. Hugs Anesha

  11. Hope your on the mend and you find Mr Mojo and put him to work. I didn't know Fiskers did stamps.

    Hope you are feeling better real soon!

  14. Get well soon! I am sure some Mojo will come back flying in. I normally look at old cards - or sketches to get the creative juices flowing!

  15. oh wow, are there that many Fiskars cutter templates? I think I have about 2/3 as many. We got TJ the beach girl one for a Christmas Present. And Daniel found me a texture tool and 2 double sided plates.

  21. I hope you are feeling better soon. Nothing like a cold that drags on keeping; not sick enough to stay in bed, but too tired and achy to do much else.
    Happy New Year.

  22. Hi Kath - I always look in on your blog and catch up with your adventures but don't often comment so I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks for all your entertaining posts and crafty inspiration through the year. I really hope you feel better soon and best wishes for 2011!

  23. Hi Kath, sorry to hear your still not feeling much better. Hope Mr Mojo returns to help with the pile of stash you have to work with. Hugs x ChrisB

  24. Lovely lots of bits and pieces to work with there. I hope you are soon feeling better so that the crafting mojo can come out to play.

    Buddy looks really comfy with his tail tucked over his nose. I hope he isn't snoring too loudly!

    Happy New Year

  25. Wonderful toys to play with on your workdesk! I can relate to turkey bad it was more than tidbits for

    Happy creative crafting in the New Year. Thanks for the peek and sharing, hugs Marjo #10

  26. Am sure Mr Mojo is lurking about and will be with you very soon - perhaps he doesn't want to catch the dreaded lurg! Hope you're feeling better soon Kath and can't wait to see what you make with all that wonderful equipment. At least Buddy looks snug and content.

    Love Lynda xxx

  27. Sorry to hear your not too well and that your Mojo has gone AWOL. I suppose the only thing to do is dive in somewhere and hope that CD has sparked something off. Buddy looks so comfortable and cosy where he is. Take care, and wishing you and yours a healthy and happy New Year. Elizabeth #57

  28. Get better soon! These bugs seem to be hanging on forever this year! I am really looking forward to what you do with all that lovely crafty stuff, your creations are always great!

    Happy New Year!

    luv, Mags x

  29. Buddy has so much empathy - Goldies are like that, yes they are. The mojo knows when the holidays are here and it's just resting up before the New Years surge. Hopefully you're up to snuff soon Kath. Hauoli makahiki hou. Have a healthy and prosperous 2011.

  30. Hi Kath and Buddy,
    Looks like lots of yummy Fiskars goodies to play with! Hope your Mojo returns soon.
    Happy final WOYWW for 2010 and Happy 2011!

  31. Yummy stamps and Fiskars stuff kath, that should clear away the lurgy. Hope the mojo has returned!

  32. Oh my the dreaded Fiskars shapecutter! Mine was filed under 'B' many years ago.

    Buddy looks like he's had a hard day!

  33. Hope you feel better soon. Buddy looks so comfy.


  34. Looks like you're going to be busy Kath. I got my prize CD from Craftwork cards on Wednesday when my postie eventually made an appearance after 2 weeks. I got a whole pile of long awaited Christmas cards too and some goodies I'd ordered from Craftwork Cards. Don't know how they had space in the sorting office at Ellon for everybody's mail!

    Kat xx

  35. HAPPY NEW YEAR KATH and family, it is already 2011 for you as I type this. My it looks like you may be crafing non-stop this week and of course we all expect to see EVERYTHIG, lol. #75
