WOW it's WOYWW!

Here's my desk as at about 10 minutes ago...that is, er 11 15 this windy Wednesday morning. (I'm loving all the alliteration this WOYWW causes!) As you can see, the daylight lamp is in evidence - I was playing last night and haven't been back to the table since; a late start and an emergency run to Mr Dunnit's grindstone saw to that. You can see I'm trying to make a stack of elephants fit on a card. I'm trying to make it a cute card, because I foolishly suggested to Shopkeper Gal that I could do a workshop called 'Almost Cute'. I'm not known for doing cute, but how hard can it be? Don't ask. Coming up with 4 cards that qualify as cute has not only been very hard work, but stretched my stamp collection. Although you'd think if I have that set of elephants in my collection, cute would just roll out of me huh? Nah. Just not in my character...funny, ironic, sarcastic, warm (I hope), but not cute. So you can see most things that were being used last night..I think the most interesting is the pair of black scissors. They are teflon coated and therefore non-stick. They are short and pointy. They are fab and I only use them for cutting tapes and cuting through glue-y or glued on stuff. They are faithful and over-used slaves to my hobby. I don't know if you can see anything else of any interest at all - but if you have a question, please ask me......right after you've shown us your workdesk this Wednesday! Go on, you know you want to!

If you're getting into checking for WOYWW pics on various blogs, download the button that Annie made for us from the right hand margin and join us. It's not a membership thing, there are no rules, hell, it doesn't even have to be Wednesday's photo. We just wanna see what you're doing!

And because Blogger let me this morning, here's another photo - a collective shot of die cut christmas decoupage from Crafthouse Press' bargain pack. Loads. Which is why they aren't on cards yet! Great in-front-of-the-tv-crafting though! I'm getting ready!

OK! Got there, late as usual, but done!

Anne said...

Ooooh, I'd love a daylight lamp. Is it really like real life daylight?

I can't do cute either. I've tried. It just doesn't work for me. I have to say that I think your decoupage stuff is cute. And show us the elephants when they're done - I bet they ARE cute!

Angie said...

Yeah ... finally got back my blog and have done my WOYWW. First time I've posted twice on one day.
I'm sure you will manage cute fine ... just think pink and cutsy animals lol. Look forward to seeing your elephant card.

I'll join in with this next Wed - I have people coming at the weekend and it MAY prompt me to tidy my desk and I just MAY be able to keep it tidy until Wed - not holding out much hope though - one of these days they are going to say Where's Fiona and I'll be under all the inks and papers! lol!

No blog entry or phot fromme due to camera that has gone walkabout. No one is owning up to it at home and, even worse, I have found the camera case. Without the case. Anyhoo, not so much fun as a photo, but a brief description - I have recently joined a new CJ and I have been working on the entry of an absolutely stunning Lord of the Rings entry received - a very high standard that I'm aiming high for!
