Wednesday 27 February 2013


Didn't think I could join in this week but how could I miss the worlds best desk hop hosted by Julia of Stamping Ground.  Well I couldn't so I've just taken a photo of my desk this morning and here it is.

Even bigger mess than usual because I'm trying to do fifteen things at once including some pages for a deco book swap I'm in (due Friday) and prep for the workshop I'm doing on Saturday.  All the letter stencils are cut and have just finished the instruction sheets so they are on there as well.  Favourite bit of my desk this week?  Has to be those Graphic 45 letter stamps, in a fab tin - don't you just adore things in tins?

Was getting ready to go for a walk with Sorrel but I'm doing my impression of Rapunzel (without the long flowing locks) as Andy has gone to work with my door/car keys so I'm locked in (not really as I can get out the back way but the story loses a bit if I tell you that).

We were only going for a short walk anyway because a) I have too much to do, b) my back is giving me gip, again, and c) Sorrel hurt herself yesterday, playing too hard with a Pug, a Boston Terrier and then a Border Terrier, all of which were just a bit too boisterous, so we are having a quiet day.  May not be able to get round as many desks this week but I will return all calls.

Have a good Wednesday.

Almo said...

Hi Ann sounds like you are ultra busy and how frustrating that your back is playing up just when you least need it. You have a nice background you are working on at the front of your desk, does the flitter glue give us a clue of some guilding flakes being added? Hugs Mo x

RosA said...

Your desk look interesting with creative potential! And yes, I love things in tins! Can't bear to part with a "useful" tin, either.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
Happy late WOYWW,

Awww poor Sorrel. Just like kids. It's all fun and games til someone gets hurt hehe. Maybe snuggle time was the best thing for both of you.

Love all the activity going on at your desk. Creative Blessings! Kelly #156
