Happy 8th WOYWW Anniversary
Who would have believed when Julia started this fun blog hop that it would still be going strong after 8 years. Congratulations to everyone – and thanks to Julia! So, hello my friends and welcome. Without further ado – what we are all here for… my desk shot! If you are of a nervous disposition, then maybe you shouldn’t look too closely!
Taken Tuesday afternoon after a mammoth card fest – nothing tidied away, everything out. From left to right – a music CD on the floor at the top of the stairs. I’ve been going through all our CDs to see which ones are me and which are not – sitting on the floor means it is not, and so will head to the nearest charity shop. On top of the radiator is a pile of envelopes – the ATCs already spoken for. If you would still like to swap with me just say so in your comments and send me an email to margaret(dot)diddanfa(at)gmail(dot)com. I have three spare. First come first served.
Moving along the landing there is my CD player, drawers on the floor – that’s my drawer of bling, a drawer of stamps, and one of ready to fold card stock, 2 boxes of ribbon – well, a girl can never have too much ribbon can she?? and the waste bin.
Up on the desk, from the window forward – a box of embossing folders, a bow maker, a stash of coloured card and paper, a printer which needs checking out, the card, paper, stamps and peel-offs I have just used, mobile phone, glasses, cards I have just finished for the hotel (yes, MORE!), scissors, inks, brushes, and a background I was playing with using brushos. Not at all sure about it – my first attempt with watercolour paper. In the distance on the windowsill are a couple of sad looking orchid plants and my collection of cut glass and silver perfume bottles and thimbles.
So, what have I been doing to produce such chaos? Well, ATCs, cards to go with them, cards for the hotel, and since taking the photo I have played with a tiny die for making a rather attractive gift bag – might think about how to use that in different ways… I have almost completed another blanket of squarish squares, have taken a day out to drive to Rugby to see my dad who is definitely not too well, and spent time recovering from all the talking with my college friends!
So, that’s me. folks. Happy WOYWW anniversary to you all.
Take care. God bless.
