Back To Work...

Morning folks...I've had my gallivanting and skiving hat on a little too often lately and the crafty list has grown to mountainous proportions so today is going to be a WORK WORK WORK day.  Who am I kidding...you could say that WORK and PLAY are one and the same in my world...I've got a bit of a nerve calling it WORK when I've got lots of yummy stuff on my workdesk to PLAY with from The Ribbon Girl...Craftwork Cards...Hero Arts...Tim Holtz and Girls Just Want To Have Fun...the only spanner in the works is...it all needs to be done and dusted before I take off for the NEC 2 weeks tomorrow...so if Mr Mojo is in a co-operative mood...we'll be cooking by gas and nailing those deadlines...the alternative...well let's not go there...think POSITIVE....I don't have time to fit a nervous breakdown into my schedule.
But before we put our heads together and get creative....I wanted to share the gorgeous set of coasters that my lovely buddy Ann gave me when we met up for lunch last week...aren't they fabulous...beautifully stamped and coloured...
and woohoo more Timmie goodies have arrived in the cubbyhole...another little "keep me sane" treat...
It was only a matter of time before I gave into temptation and got the "Sewing On The Edge" Die...the Tattered Flower Garland didn't really float my boat until I spotted the gorgeous samples Pete Hughes made for Stitches and check out my brand new Non-Stick All Bright and Sparkly New Craft Sheet....the old one has been well used as you can imagine and was looking tired...tattered and mega mucky so it's been cut into squares and will come in handy for workshops.
I'm off to sweet talk Mr Mojo and The Furry Boy and if that doesn't work I can always fall back on bribery...see you all tomorrow over at WOYWW...hopefully with a messy creative desk.
