Hello, my friends. I trust this finds you well, Julia resting leisurely, and all enjoying some artycraftytime!!! My photo this week was actually taken on Monday – and Tuesday, and I assure you the desk hasn’t changed since Tuesday morning. The place is tidy ready for us to go away on Saturday. Yippee!!!!! So far it’s looking good for our time away.

So… my desk…

I am determined to leave the desk tidy now until we get home – nothing is going to be done as I won’t have time to do anything. However… we did pop over to Holland Arms garden centre for coffee and cake at lunchtime…. and John did just happen to lead me down to the craft shop… and I just might have made a couple of purchases…. Some envelopes. Distress paints which were on offer, two fancy little pots, a pack of blending sponges, some ribbon on offer at 50p for 3metres, and a half price stamp set. Nothing much, you understand…

So there you have it, folks. Have a fantastic anniversary next week – we will have no internet at the cottage so I won’t see anything of it. I wish Julia every blessing as she goes to hospital for her op. May Father God guard and keep you, Julia, watching over everything that goes on!

Take care all. God bless.

    Your room is fabulous! You are like me, my photos were taken earlier and saved to my iPad mini so I could post from my vacation. Then I forgot! At 10:00 pm I remembered! Then, I had to figure out how to post my blog from my mini iPad. Isn’t the same! But “got er done!” πŸ™‚ Thanks for your earlier visit. #62

    Hope it is a case of ‘better late than never’ – sorry I am so late but with being away – and now you are away and won’t get this. Hope you enjoy the holiday and John stays well for the duration and beyond. He has done so well up to now this year, let’s hope it continues with a little help from above. Great purchases Margaret, how nice to have John as your enabler, tee hee. Hugs, Neet 10 xx

    I believe those shelves will make your work space much more efficient, since you now have you main supplies at arms reach. I love the natural lighting too. Blessings!

    Have a wonderful time as you head off to your holiday cottage. The desk looks far too tidy and organised and then I realised you will be away. I do hope you take a little holiday kit with you. sandra de @33

    Hi Margaret, Your craft room looks fabulous! It would be so nice to create in a calm and tidy environment. (Mine makes my head spin.) Thanks for dropping by earlier. That canvas is waiting for a coat of black gesso over it, would you believe! Hope you have a lovely relaxing holiday.

    Love your room, Margaret, and the new shelf is a brilliant idea, and it looks so good! My studio is pretty much a tip at the moment and sometime I really must try and tidy up in there! Thank you for your lovely comment, and for my hubby’s birthday wishes. We’re off to the county show tomorrow to celebrate and just hope it doesn’t rain on us. I managed to finish his card in time and will be blogging about it in due course. We are very relieved to have found Phoebe and were thinking the worst! Happy WOYWW and love to John too, Shoshi x

    Oooh the shelf is a great idea πŸ™‚ I love how much flat space you have to spread out on! ~Stacy #52
    Wed, 18 May 2016 19:15:37

    What a fantastic craft space you have there! The shelf really makes a difference (I know from experience). It’s almost a shame you are going on holiday because I bet you want to ‘play’ with your stuff not to mention the new stash. Have a well deserved break, give John my love. Have a good week and thank you for visiting, Blessings Lisca

    I hope you have a fabulous time away! Will be praying for your elder grandson. The green handled thing far right on my desk is a Spellbinder Platinum manual die cut machine. I LOVE it! Sounds like you got some fun goodies to play with when you get home. God bless you! Carol n #44

    Hi Margaret, not gatecrashing today but meeting online where you’d expect πŸ™‚ The new shelving is perfect for storing tons of stuff of your desk and out of the way. How kind of John to take you down to the craft shop and how could you resist all those crafty goodies! Have a great holiday – a cottage, no internet – sounds wonderful to me. Hugs, Elizabeth x #41

    Who can resist crafty purchases? The desk looks great. I hope you have fun on your trip! We’re going away but only for a couple of days this time. I think it’s the time of year when we all need a break. Happy WOYWW Sharon K #46

    Hi both. It looks like several of us will be missing the action next week but I’m sure we will all catch up on our return πŸ™‚ It’s raining here today so I guess we will all be enjoying creative times…it’s a good excuse isn’t it? Hugs, Annie x #13

    Are you trying to make me blind posting such small photos lol? I trust what you are telling me is on your desk otherwise. Yes I was up a tad early for Eurovision and having gone to bed at 1am I had to sleep the rest of the day to catch up lol Bridget #23
    Wed, 18 May 2016 09:43:51

    That desk looks even better in real life and I am so envious of how well it has come together. And we can’t even get in a play day on it before I go away. Enjoy your holiday, see you when you get back. Chris (No desk)

    Super shelves, just what you needed. I have a really narrow shelf just for my Distress inkpads under another shelf – perfect for access when seated at my desk. Happy WOYWW BJ#15
