WOYWW 158 !

Picture the scene ...... laptop open and I'm blogging..... cat curled up on the sofa next to me and purring VERY loudly, a gallon of steaming hot coffee and total silence..... all ready to go for a trip around the world for the phenomenonononon....that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday run by the fantastic MRS DUNNIT over at HER PLACE ! So why not pop over and have a wee look to see what I'm on about! It'll be fun and it's a GREAT excuse or not getting any housework done! :P lol...

The scene earlier on this morning was NOT so 'heavenly' though.....there I was at 8 a.m. in my big purple fleecy dressing gown, head like a hedgehog on steroids (don't ask because I don't know, but you get the idea) lol and not a tooth in my head!! Was answering the door to my son's mate! They both have a second interview (skills test this time) for a place they applied for at College, they wanted to get away early because the Olympic torch is coming into Falkirk today and the traffic will be horrendous!! Trust me when I say that the Wicked Witch of the North looked a helluva lot better than I did!! lol....I was NOT a pretty sight! lol

Anyway I digress somewhat!... On my ...erm...shall we say ..'creative space' this week lol...A  gorgeous ATC that was done for the 3rd WOYWW birthday swap! And I have to say it is just gorgeous!! Very cleverly done and i love it!! So THANK YOU KAREN aka Ink, Paper and Scissors! ...

Here's a close up of the cleverness.....


I just adore those 'mini polaroids' of my workdesk!! THAT is such a great touch! Got to figure out how that lettering was embossed though....that's just so cool!! And I have to say that I love the lovely card that came with it too...all the way from Canada too... :D

The other fancy wee ATC is from Mrs D aka Julia and had the WOYWW badge attatched! I love this little piece! How she managed to see that 'teensy totsie' wee man to stick him onto that card is beyond me lol...but he is ever so 'cute'!

Here's a close up ...


Cool innit?!! ....

I have another ATC to come yet but that's 'winging' it's way from America so it will take a bit longer. which I don't mind. I have actually managed to POST OFF MY ATC'S at long last long! .... so to my 'swap' partners....they are on their way to you and hopefully they won't be too long in getting to you! Once again I am so sorry for the delay.

The other 'stuff' on my desk.... is well.... just the usual creative stuff...my art journal, which I actually managed to get a couple of 'dark' pages done for, (needed to vent a little) ... a big 'bits and bobs' journal that I use for practicing ideas, and as you can see I'm in the middle of some 'tangling'! ....and piles of other 'stuff' that I've just been too plain lazy to put away lol...

So there you have it.... I completely disobeyed Julia's rules to keep this post short and sweet this week.... lol...So I am now procrastinating on whether or not to mow my lawn, the sun is actually shining but seeing as I'm in Scotland it won't be for long lol...it is to be raining tomorrow and my lawn is currently looking like the local farmer's meadow!! Wonder if he would lend me a sheep!! lol...

So Thank You for dropping by, take care and Happy WOYWW !

What a busy desk! Your hedgehog description is familiar to me - most mornings!! I hadn't thought about the old Olympic Torch causing traffic chaos - it's coming pretty close to the end of our road - I'd better check and see if anyone has to get to work that day!! Happy WOYWW Cindy #39

Bernice said...

A busy desk Jackie. Hope it stayed dry for you to get your lawn cut - I've tried to persuade DH to get a wee donkey or a couple of pygmy goats to save mowing ours - but he thought 4 hens and a cat was quite sufficient!

You sure got some beautiful ATC's.
I'm still chuckling, as I have a picture in my head of you answering the door. Sounds like me in the morning.
Have a great week.

Your story about the early morning state of Bleurgh rang so many bells with me!! Really, I am not fit to be seen before 10am...sigh...must get more polyfilla for the face!!
Love the Zentangly doodles - I bought a little book and some Inktense pencils - I'm looking forward to sitting down and just losing myself in some drawing - I used to do that all the time and just don't nowadays. Well, that's gonna change!!!
Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

I recognise myself in your early morning description..I bounce off the walls a bit before I can focus!! Glad to see you're enjoying some happy mail! I wonder if you did mow the lawn?!!

Hello!

You have so many fun things on your workdesk - I had to click on your photo so I could see it all in more detail! Wishing you a good weekend!

Hugs,

Laura said...

You got some very cool ATCs! Maybe your hedgehog on steroids description will prompt something in your art journal? :-) Happy WOYWW (on Monday!) from Laura #109

Morti said...

The only trouble with sheep on your lawn is the black roses they leave behind...LOL.

Great ATCS you've received - just fab. There's some super-talented folks out there, eh?

Hope you're feeling a bit better by now!
