WOYWW 190

Well now, aren't I getting the hang of stuff.  Note at left of this blog there is now a heading marked 'Pages'.  Right now it has one page explaining WOYWW.  Soon it will have others which you can look at or not, as always, it's all about choice.  Well, actually, it's my blog so it's all about me, but I like to think that you think that I think I'm selfless. 


As you know, I have no shame.  Which is why I don't bother to tidy up before you visit.  But even I am a little shocked that I'm letting you see this...two empty coffee cups and a snack tray.  In my defence...this all occurred within Tuesday..the two mugs are because someone else made me a second coffee and I didn't think to say I already had a mug 'on the go'. For reals.  So I'm working on a Layout which will be part of a Scrapbooking session at Shopkeeper Gal's.  The new workshop schedule is peppered with my name.  Argh!  The most interesting thing is I think, the little blue box on top of the Layout.  It's waxed dental floss.  I was about to use it to lift off the stuck down photo on the left of the page.  A great tip from the Babymumma some years ago.  One I'm delighted to say that I haven't needed until today.  Argh again!   
So there we are.  Show us yours then.  Put WOYWW in your post title and link here. It's fun.  The word verification isn't though - I readily admit that I'm receiving regular spam because I don't use WV, but for me it's preferable to manage and delete it than to miss the chance of a response from a visitor.

See, it's funny Julia. On YOUR desk my eyes go right to that beautiful scrapbook layout and I don't even notice your mugs and stuff until you point it out.

On mine - all I SEE is the mess!

Happy WOYWW to you!

WOW..I'm first, no doubt will not happen again so soon. I first noticed the big spoon! I could use something refreshing before I'm off to dream.
As those cups could have had usable things in them for crafting. Thanks for the tip with the dental floss, had a time I could have tried that.
Happy WOYWW and enjoy the event.

RosC said...

G'day Julia. I reckon this is the earliest I have EVER been. I've been sitting here visiting WOYWW people and refreshing the Stamping Ground between times. :-) Now I can go out and trim the hedge.

Great shot of the desk and layout for the workshop. Dental floss is a good trick, thanks. I've also used one of those flat staple removers with reasonable success.

Warm smiles for your cold winter,
Ros. #3 (!!!)

Andrea said...

the scrap page looks ace the paper looks stunning love the floral sin the corner and clever tip re dental floss who would have thought !!..have great week and thanks for being a fab host will visit everyone tonight after work got top dash early start today, nearly forgot impressed with the healthy snack mines would need to include chocolate ! hugs Andrea x

Helen said...

You caught me unawares with your slightly early start! I too went straight for the layout rather than the rest (I won't say mess!) Have a great, if chilly, day!

Tuire Flemming said...

You were early this Wednesday! Don't worry, we are not afraid of mess ;) not so green outside anymore...
Have a happy Wednesday!

Sue from Oregon said...

Oh Julia, I did a close in shot of my wild desk tonight...it is pretty bad! If I get something stuck in the wrong place, I heat the paper with my embossing gun. It works so so slick and never rips the papers...maybe heat from the back if it is a picture though!

MvM-design said...

Good morning!!

Love your desk Julia, messy or not!!
Hugs Marleen #12

sandee said...

Well, the snacks look healthy, you'd find chocolate on my desk if I didn't eat it up so fast, lol Are you still enjoying all that lovely snow? I'll have to try that dental floss idea one day, sounds interesting!♥ waving hi from the chilly hills of North Carolina :)

KatzElbows said...

A snack tray? You mean to say that you eat sometimes? I'm shocked! The gorgeous layout totally distracted from everything else, so you really shouldn't draw our attention to these things! Besides, you're the one who encouraged us all to be shameless, so you have to be too,

Hope you're staying warm and that you have a great Wednesday.

Cheers,
Rachel

Bubbles said...

Never heard of the dental floss trick before - wish I'd known about it about seven hours ago - would have saved me from a lot of swearing, maybe *lol*
It's great to be back (finally!) having a go at WOYWW - 39 weeks missed!
Your desk, as always Julia, is productive and full of creativity - not messy :)

Jackie said...

Strange how we all see things different..... Your snack tray was healthy!!! I too found a coffee cup on mine this week, sadly it had been there for a while!
I wish you had told us the tip about the dental wax LAST week when u go to my desk you will see why
Jackie 16

voodoo vixen said...

I have dental floss in my scrap drawer... used it once when I couldn't wait to go and buy book binding thread... let me tell you, that little book smells lovely as it was a minty fresh flavoured one!! ;)
Two mugs huh... is my son related to you in any way? I pop my head into what was my second spare room and which has now become his study across from his bedroom (spare room number 1) and he always seems to have a collection of them on his desk!!

Claire said...

morning, julia, are you still snowbound? it's melting around here...
i never noticed your mugs n stuff until you pointed them out - all i saw was the beautifully, lovely photo lay-out - just gorgeous!
no. 5
you posted early this morning :)

BJ said...

What a wacky idea, dental floss to remove a photo. Best keep that info to the ready. Alphabetical happens to be my favourite alphabet, love it. BJ#27

fairy thoughts said...

it all looks very inteesting to me even the fact that you have more coffee cups than scissors.. makes a change. good luck with the LO. have a good day
janet #30

Ann B said...

Heard about the flossing but never done it myself, clever idea though.
Lovely scrapbook page as well.
Made a mess of my entry this week, tried to schedule it and got the time wrong and managed to change the date when I just altered it. For some reason it now shows as Sunday - it wasn't, honest, took the photo yesterday afternoon.

Lynn Holland said...

I'm only laughing cos I get nagged for leaving cups all over the house half full of cold tea, half empty bowls of cereal, half eaten apples. And why is that ? It's because my mind is always buzzing with ideas and I wander off to my desk and forget to finish whatever I was doing before. You also see half or nearly started household chores as well. Think I need a cleaner. My friend once said "that duster and polish were on that table two weeks ago". Never mind craftings more interesting. A tidy house is the sign of a bored housewife haha

Kyla said...

Snack tray? Looks like a healthy snack to me so no apology necessary.
Great tip about the dental floss.

Hardwick Creations said...

Once again you've been busy Julia. Looks like you're working on some interesting projects. I was hanging about trying to be #1 (as I'm on holidays) but alas I had to go out to the shops and now find myself #38...still impressive!

Thanks again for supporting us and I forgot to thank you for the WOYWW badge that you sent me last year...I will have to include it in next week's blurb.
:D

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I like the gingham (?) background on the card you're doing, very homespun. You'll be wearing your hair in pigtails next!! Yee haaaarr pardner ;)

Anda said...

The page you're working on looks lovely. I don't eat in my Craftcave - I'm too scared of spilling food on a project!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Julia, the first thing I saw on your desk was the page - the corner detail on the page is really pretty. And if you hadn't mentioned the cups and snack tray, I wouldn't have noticed them at all :)

The dental floss tip is one to keep in mind - I usually ease photos up - very gingerly, it has to be said - if I want to move them. The way I stick them down with just a little sticky, it works.

I'm impressed at the new page thingy - I'm still at first base with blogger and likely to remain there for some time to come :)

Have a great WOYWW (inside and keeping warm, I hope) Elizabeth x #40

toni said...

Hi Julia, I like the look of your layout, plus there's a nice looking card on your desk. Dental floss to remove picture hmmm must give this a go have a lovely crafty day x

Helen said...

Morning Julia. Your busy teaching schedule will keep your desk interesting! You only need feel bad about cups and plates when they are coming to life!!! My youngest was experimenting drying some slices of cucumber on a plate in his room ;-) Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 42

Annie said...

I'm sure I'm like others and only really check out the creative bits of your desk Julia but now you have pointed that out I'm trying to deside if that is apple on your snack tray :-)
Hugs,
A x

Minxy said...

Good morning Julia, I know it's kinda late but seeing it's the first time i've visited this year Happy New Year lol
Love the look of your layout, with all this snow about it's nice to see something that looks flowery and spring like.

kath stewart said...

being a coffee junkie I often have 2 cups on my desk...no shame in that girl...lots of other interesting stuff to feast our eyes on...happy WOYWW hugs kath xxx

Queenie Jeannie said...

Good morning, Miss Julia!

I see a very lovely layout and a card to the right....but...what is on your easel?? It's very interesting looking and I wanna know/see more, lol!!! I'm just nosy like that - wink!

Eliza said...

Hey I started looking at the scrapbooking page and thinking it was really pretty, then you blew it by saying something about coffee cups and being messy. For real I was not here for the messyness, I was still revelling over the snow outside from last week. Dental floss for the lifting of stuff hmm thats a good one, I used dental floss mini brushes for getting into the tight corners on chipboard to ink them, athey are like mini bottle brushes LOL they are great for your teeth too.

Loved visiting today, but don't think i will get around to many starting to feel ill again being on the computer.

bye for now stay warm and happy crafting.

Eliza 47 I thnk

donnalouiserodgers said...

I'vebeen awol, on return I'd like to note that I love the new font and the background if perfectly you, I think I missed something about a June crop so I will be exploring the pages to find that, and having just been totally selfish and thoroughly enjoying it (trip to CHA with Jennie) I think self less ness is probably vastly over rated, indulge yourself Mrs D, and love every minute of it,

dxxxx

Twiglet said...

I like the "pages" idea Julia - all very organised - unlike the desk - but I guess that's OK cos you know where everything is and that's all that matters! Have a great day - more snow here. x Jo

JoZart said...

funny how desks look the same but vastly different too. Maybe we should have a comp where we identify mystery desks? Love your good honest mess as it's still creative and your LO is looking good. I spy evidence of the cold white stuff still lurking through the chinks of window.
love Jo x

Redanne said...

Hi Julia, I don't see the mess at all, just lots of interesting things to look at! Love the idea with the dental floss.....I think! Happy WOYWW, Anne x #57

okienurse said...

great looking desk and I didn't notice the cups and snack until I read them. My desk always has something available to munch on! Layout looks like it is coming along nicely. I hate it when I get it stuck down wrong. Floss is a good idea! Have a great week. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35

Morning Julia!!

lovely layout my eyes went first to the card and the layout i dont notice the messy bits like cups til you point them out.

Love the look of those papers you are scrapping on and do I spy some Michael Powell images waiting to be made colourful????

Neil said...

Hi Julia, great layout and I think a snack tray is a brilliant idea. I often take one down with me!
Re the spam. I've found that I don't get much spam now because I don't allow anonymous comments. So no WV, but because you can only comment with one of your accounts ie google which most peeps who follow my blog have I still get plenty of feedback but so far only 1 spam comment!

Julia what is a mug or two between friends. Your desk is always a treat and one has to eat while crafting. Something needs to sustain all those great ideas.

A wonderfully creative desk and a glimpse of *S*N*O*W* in the background ... all seems pretty perfect to me! Happy WOYWW'ing Julia! Love Debbie #69 xXX

My name is Cindy said...

Morning!! Only two cups? My room gets quite bad by the end of some days... See you have been using that MichaelPowell stamp. I have that also, I don't know why I haven't used it. Good luck with the dental floss. Cindy

Di said...

Hi Julia, whilst I did spot the mugs, the mahoosive spoon eluded me until I read other comments here :)

My eyes were drawn straight to the layout - from your trip to Turkey last year? Plus the Michael Powell images of course.

Still snowy here :(

Happy WOYWWW

Hugs, Di xx

Chrysalis said...

Hi Julia - you can make yourself feel better about your work table by looking at my sewing room! Happy crafting xx

Julia, Julia, Julia! First off I want to THANK YOU for all the pretty stuff you've sent me, I'm giving you a shout-out on my post this week! ♥

And wow, I love your layout! As the rest of the ladies said, I didn't notice the mess until you've mentioned it! lol

Have a very happy Wednesday. xx

Sharon said...

Great tip about the dental floss. Looks like you have a lot on the go. x

Caz said...

The tray's allowed because it shows HEALTHY EATING (well, I think it looks like pieces of apple beside the yogurt pot!!) And it shows you haven't been so engrossed in creating that you forgot to drink and keep your fluid levels up........LOL!!

Julia, you should see my desk this week. I love the fact that you are brave enough to eat and drink at your desk, I am too clumsy for that..Happy WOYWW. Cx #84

First thing I noticed was your layout but then...yogurt and apple, so Thanks for interrupting your snack to take this photo! Oh! and be careful you don't knock that cup off the edge lol! Chris( Looks like 84 but may change!!)

scrappyjen said...

The layout looks lovely. The papers look very nice... love the yoghurt and spoon lol. Happy woyww, jenx

Joanne said...

Eating and drinking whilst you craft is the only way to go otherwise, distraction after distraction leads to sticking things down where you don't want them - oh! too late.

Sandy said...

Love the ute card I spy on your desk with the little balloons in it.. Really like your layout really pops your photos like how the flowers come over the edge of your photos. Nice healthy snacking you have going on there.
Sandy :)

Jaki Morris said...

Ug, yogurt!

How lucky you are to have people bringing you hot drinks! On Friday my children got sent home from school, along with another friend plus my husband. I ended up making cards whilst making hot chocolates, chips, pizzas and anything else required. Still they did play outside happily for hours and I managed to make 10 cards.

Have a great day
Happy WOYWW

I seem to be getting good at this, back for my third week running.
Lucky you having someone to make you another coffee, when I go into my craft room my kids forget I am around.
Love the look of your scrapbook page.

Glenda said...

I didn't get to play this week and am missing it already! Just look at your desk! So much going on and just look at the snow outside your window! Makes you feel all warm and toasty to be inside!

Hi Julia, Isn't it nice to have somone bring you another cup of coffee/tea. Love the layout. How do you use the dental floss to remove the photo? Never heard that before. #99

Becky said...

As it's a bit early here, I'm drooling over your two coffee mugs, haven't had mine yet!! Your layout looks very interesting!

Jackie said...

Good morning, I have to say that I'm with you on Word Verification and am sorry to say that if it's switched on I don't comment on that blog. It's a shame really but it doesn't take time which many of us don't have

Enjoy your day :)

Alison Scott said...

Love the layout Julia. Its not really messy, just organised chaos. I am very interested in what is on the easel? That stamp looks lovely. As for your coffee and snacks, I dont craft without a pot of tea.
Alison #100

Nelle said...

Hi Julia,
As a card maker my eye was taken past the coffee cups and landed on the card first.
Lots happening on your desk,eating and drinking too.
I am going to see how many nice cups i see today.
Regards,
Nelle xx #89

Kate said...

Lovely page, like the papers. Can you e-mail me the latest workshop schedule, or get me added to Shopkeeper Gal's list?

I see on the left you have managed some good impressions from those DoCrafts Michael Powell stamps. Any hot tips on that? I've found all the new 'urban' brand stamps to be a bit hit and miss on that.

** Kate **

butlersabroad said...

The way I see it you're in such a creative zone that you're practically living at your desk whilst whipping up paper, embellishments and photos into a frenzy of magnificent pages. The other people in the house are doing the feeding (of you) and the leaving of used mugs, not you! See how this works? You're not playing the game to your own advantage!

Hugs

MiniOwner said...

How lovely to see a scrapbook page - and a super one at that! I also like the look of the card with the little car on to the right of your page. I wouldn't mind a closer look! Happy Wednesday. :o)

StampinCarol said...

The scrapbook page looks lovely! I'm pretty poor at scrapping as I have to beg the kids to send pictures!! I also looked back to see your snow covered car! I remember those days when we lived near Yellowstone Park in Wyoming, USA. Hope you have a great day!
Carol N #114

Samantha Elliott said...

I would not have noticed the cups on your desk but I did spot your Activia pot, only cos I lurve those!
Lovely images waiting to be coloured and I love the papers you are scrapping with. Thanks for the tip on dental floss. I use the forkey things (forgotten what they are called) so will have to buy some. Mind you, I don't tend to press down too hard until I am happy with the placement to save the bother! ATG is a pain to get undone!

I am loving the card with the car and your page looks gorgeous! thanks for the floss tip - that will definitely prove very useful! Stay warm xx #116

Deb said...

I don't think your desk looks too bad, I always have at least one cup on mine at all times, normally filled mind you!
The floss tip is brilliant, must remember that one!

Laura said...

Your page-in-progress looks really lovely -- gorgeous paper!! Hope the dental floss did the trick -- that's a good tip. And the card to the right looks bright and fun. Thanks for inviting us all to the party every Wednesday. :-) ~ Laura

At least your snack is a healthy one. I can see your snow. Lovely.

Carol Cel said...

Oh - I like the tip about the floss -- and the snacks look great - I don't mind the coffee cup either, there is one on my workspace too -- in the afternoons, it is sometimes a glass of wine :)

Bella said...

My eye went to the two beautiful stamped images on your ipad stand...Love the LO too. One can never have too much to drink at your desk either so why not accept the kind offer of a second mug? I know I would.

MaggieC said...

I sometimes make a collection of cups and other things like that on my desk too. I do have a lot of Clarity stamps - I am addicted to them. I am gradually getting rid of all my rubber stamps in favour of the see through polymer type. I love looking round your desk, always plenty to really get into. Have a good week. xx Maggie #20

Jules said...

I love that you keep it real and don't tidy up! I am week three and am loving this linkup.....SOOOOO much fun!

Hello, no post from me yet - not feeling well today. Desk is bare & likely to stay that way. Wasn't at all well earlier so not long up & dressed! Wanted to pop by and say hello anyway. Will pop by some desks when I can, otherwise I'll get withdrawal symptoms! Take care Zo xx

Another messy desk from me this week - but that's half the fun! Really glad I decided to join in this year, Carole Z #122

Sandie said...

Lovely to visit after a long break (unintended). Hoping to be a regular again - it is so reassuring to see other peoples workspace as messy as mine :)

Pam said...

Someone made you a coffee oh if only, although I did get a cup of tea and the remainder of a box of choccies (I resisted shouting I'm on a diet) in the couple of hours (4to be precise) that i managed work for today, home again still suffering with the lurgy.

Hi Julia,

You had me laughing here. The Pages heading sounds interesting. I really should do some research on blogger so I can advance.

I notice the truck stamp on the card. That is one of my favorite stamp sets. Too bad about having use the dental floss on something other than your teeth! Neat trick though.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay (coming in at 126!)

scrappymo! said...

For once I managed now to ramble! So short and sweet by my standards this week...hope it is by yours too!

I am eying up the stamped images you have propped on the easel...they look like fun to colour...the layout you are working on is gorgeous!

Whimcees said...

Hello!

I have not been to visit in so long it seems - difficult times here and have not been able to create. I love your creative chaos and it is always such fun to check out everything in detail to see what all is being worked on! Wishing you a happy day today!

I see the word "beautiful" and that is what this creative madness is on your desk, Julia. BEAUTIFUL!! Very cool, putting the pages link. I really need to take the time to do more stuff like that to my blog. I need to do a giveaway...and maybe think of a fun link-up to do this year. Hugs dearest! Sandy Leigh

Angela Secrest said...

Oh we aren't supposed to show off our dirty dishes lol, I've got a cup and a mug in my shot, but not because anyone but me didn't tidy! Ah well, mess occurs ;) You do realize they always ask the busiest person to do anything!

die amelie said...

Love your workdesk and what's in the middle of evolving there!!! Love the mugs too - was just wondering, if it already happened to you too, that you dipped your brushes into the tea/coffee instead of the water... hm? *giggle (I am an expert in it, I have to admit)

Greetings from desk #70,

Your work desk always looks so very interesting! It is obvious that a lot of creating goes on in that space! Thanks for sharing and thanks for hosting us! dix---

MaryH said...

Julia, thanks for letting me play again today. I think I'm braving this because your desk makes me feel so 'at home'. I took a shot of some specific things on my desk, so the clutter wouldn't be so visible. (I'm working on it!) Your desk looks very crafty, artsy & creative, and if I had a coffee cup on my desk, I'd have coffee spilled everywhere. You are a brave lady! Thanks for the look-see. It was most fun. Have a wonderful Wednesday. I hope I did the link bit right. Still struggling with html, google, 'fox and all those creatures ...trying to get pictures placed where I want 'em. Hugs

Katie said...

I love the page on your desk! It is beautiful!

Darnell J Knauss said...

That's a fab desk today, Julia! I can see your snow through the window, and it's okay to have two cups to warm you, altho I wouldn't necessarily have coffee in both, and I spy an adorable card with a pickup full of balloons, a wonderful layout in the making, and a container of probiotics to keep you healthy and hosting for years and years to come!!

Mary said...

Your page layout looks wonderful. I hope you show the completed one. What a great idea for dental floss, I've never heard that. I've learned two things already today....I think it's time to go play before I forget what I've learned. Love looking at the snow outside your window. I'm just very happy it is your window... We've had very little snow this year. Touch wood, I am hoping to get through the rest of winter that way! Happy crafting!

Rebekah said...

I'll be over! Snacks, coffee and a very inviting crafty area!! Looks like a very fun bicycle card! A great layout in the works too!

Elaine said...

Two empty cups mean you have been busy noy that its messy.

Sarah Evans said...

Loving the no-holds barred photos. It feels like access all areas! Congrats on the pages. I find the whole blogging thing kind of addictive - I have all kinds of pages and all sorts!

If you want to stop spam comments I disabled anonymous commenters on my blog and it worked a treat.

I am linking up my Insta-Art post today. It's part of a series I have on my blog that shows my art from start to finish and shows a lot of what's on my desk.

Hope you like it :)

It all looks fine to me, coffee cups, snacks and all. Well done on mastering the intricacies of Blogger as well! xxx Keren

Caro said...

I didn't notice the mugs or tray until you mentioned them as I was too enthralled by your lovely looking layout! Thanks for sharing the tip about the waxed dental floss...I have needed to move a photo on more than one occassion and that has to be easier than the method I used which usually ruins the photos. Thanks for hosting as usual. Caro # 59

HeatherM said...

Yay on figuring out how to add pages. :D Love the colors on the card, that was the first thing I noticed. Good to know about the dental floss, I don't know how many pictures I've had to reprint because I messed them up when I tried to move them.

I'm waaaay down the list this week - I uploaded my post in the early hours this a.m. before going to bed, and then after getting up late, was all in a rush to get ready for our lunch out, and forgot all about it!! Still, better late than never, eh.

Love the dead coffee mugs and the half-eaten yoghurt, Julia. There's realism for you! Great layout, though.

Happy WOYWW,

Great tip about the dental floss - mind you, I hope I don't need it! The scrapbook layout looks lovely.

Loving the pot of Activia! I love looking at the messy desks of others. I'm going to take your idea of using leggings under the trousers first, I really can't believe I didn't think of that first. A trip to Primani beckons! Thanks for popping by:) Lucy #18 x

love your desk! now I don't feel so guilty about mine .. .. except I only shared a corner of the table today, the rest would give yours a run for the money!
hugs, annie x

your workdesk should be cluttered. it's a sign of a busy crafter. i'm always so afraid of spilling my drink i tend to keep them off my desk. although a coffee stain could be fun to work with.

JD said...

Your desk is always so interesting! One of these days I'll get the courage to share mine.

Hi! Thanks for hosting WOYWW! It is one of my faves. :) I was wondering what paper you were using on your layout. I really like the color scheme.
Have a great week!

I look forward to seeing what you do with those Michael Powell images.

Thanks for the reminder about dental floss - I'd forgotten about that tip.

dental floss as a scrapbooking tool! first time i've heard of that! genuine WOYWWers have no shame when it comes to letting their visitors come and visit. i like your snack! looks good!

Hi, Julia! Okay, the thing I said about the two blogs, it's because the #50, Julie--it links back to you, so in my WOYWW commenting blur, I confused that with a second site.

(I actually made it through all the list, and commented except on a couple where I couldn't find the actual woyww post, and one where it said I didn't have permission to look at the blog!)

Whew. Dead last this week. I'll try to make into the top 100 next week . . . ;)

That's it 16-08 on Friday and I have just finished visiting, I have had a lovely time, and you don't have to hide behind the curtains!

Hi Julia. I didn't make it to the Wednesday hop again this week, but I am trying to call in on those I follow or who follow me.
There is no need for shame. It is a very healthy snack tray!
I saw your layout in a later post and it is beautiful. I see you still have a good layer of the white stuff. I wish i could bottle up our sunshine and share it around. Kate x

I think I neglected to leave a comment the other night, I was just so excited to get my post made before midnight(my time)! I just ran off and forgot to tell you the LO looks fab so far and thank you ever so much as always for hostessing this wonderful WOYWW adventure! :)
And thanks for making it by my desk already, where do you find the time?!:)

Thanks for your visit, Julia, and your good wishes. Yes, spoke guards duly completed and duly paraded around said craft show! I had loads of fabby comments about them. I'm now feeling slightly better after the experience but have had two really bad nights and felt lousy yesterday, but I'm not complaining because it was my own fault for over-indulging myself in the Fun Department! I'll soon be over it, and looking forward to going through all my purchases which are still all dumped in a heap on my ARTHaven floor! First job is to sort through the receipts and get over the bad news of how much I actually spent!!!

Kezzy said...

Wow dental floss, amazing what us crafters come up with, I wonder what she was thinking at the time for her to use dental floss lol. Think I might see if it works with removing mistakes of cards. Lovely creative desk as always and a gorgeous looking layout. Happy woyww :-) hugs Kezzy xxx

Ali said...

Oooh I have to ask, what is that sitting on your deck chair thingy? Looks like some very pretty Art Deco style digi stamps maybe? :)

Lori said...

Love the updates. I have been updating a few side things on my blog too. (The WOYWW gadget was one of them) Sorry so late this week. End of the swim season and end of the basketball season means one very busy and tired mom.

Luke said...

Just posted my first WOYWW. Lovely idea.

My post is here: http://www.lukerodgers.com/wordpress/woyww-a-jam-packed-week-with-logos-and-interface-designs/

But it doesn't actually show my desktop per se. I'll rectify this next week.

I'm adonnathing's son btw.

Jeanna said...

HAHAH Ooops, I linked twice to this one and didn't ever realize! I refreshed the page and it dropped me down to last week...If you'd like, and are able, go ahead and delete my link #167.
Thanks!
