WOYWW 100

It is officially wednesday, although it feels strangely like a very late Tuesday night, so I guess it is OK to post about what is happening on my workdesk.



Well, nothing is happening on my desk - cos it's in Turkey and I am in UK. However, i have been spending far too much time down at Karen's Crafted Creations. Apart from all the crafty gossip we have been catching up on, I have also been catching up on some birthday cards. Caught by the skin of my teeth I might add!



Although i don't have all my stash or my tools with me, i have managed admirably to beg, borrow and blag everything i have needed this past week from my crafty mentor. She also has 2 gorgeous chocolate labradoodles which take residence in the craft zone at the weekend.

I managed to get to a craft show this saturday and picked up a couple of things like the craft mat that is on the desk at the moment. I tried to heat emboss my last one to disasterous results.  The other bits and bobs came from Karen - the do craft grab bag which i have to say i have got my money's worth out of already. Don't you love it when that happens! You buy it, you use it, you know that you have saved money with it and still you get to play with new stash. Totally cool!

If you are wondering why i am ranting on about desks etc then pop over to Julia's blog to find all the answers.

Hope everyone has a crafty wonderful wednesday

Morning Caroline, glad to hear you are having fun back home and still crafting away from your desk. Tatty Teddy is cute and those packs are usually good value for money. Love labradoodles - they are cuddly bundles of fun. You're getting great weather for your stay - let's hope it keeps up a while longer. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

The teddy cards on your desk look adorable. It's great what you're creating without having your usual tools and stuff.

Tidy and productive !!

Lizzie said...

Fun cards and a great post! Other crafters are often generous with their stuff - the ladies at our monthly crop never mind lending each other their stamps, punches, glue etc etc...
Amazing what you can make with "no equipment" though! The cards are lovely.
