WOYWW - 14 Spetember 2011

Fairly quick one from me this week as, once again, I have stayed up faaaaaaar too late crafting. So here's what's on my desk as of this morning (and yes, it is not very definitely morning!!):


The mess is rapidly encroaching and the useable workspace thereby shrinking but I am in a flurry of deadline-inspired crafting and no time to tidy at all. Nope, not even the growing piles of discarded tape strips from DST! Aside from the mess, the desk features a work-in-progress (my first time playing with some Flower Soft stamps I picked up a while ago on C&C) but pride of place in my craft room this week is this hefty beauty (seen here sitting on my chair for display purposes!):


Yup, I reached the end of my tether today with yet another paper trimmer (my third in a the last year or so alone) leaving raggedy-fibred edges to every cut (and now starting to rip thin paper instead of slicing through it) and flounced out in a huff to a local craft shop to bring in the big guns - a guillotine! Woohoo! I can haz clean, sharp edges nao? Yes. Yes, I can. It is a thing of beauty and I've made good use of it already.

Righto. I really really need to get myself off to bed cos DD2 will probably be waking for a bottle in oooooh, about 5 hours or so! G'night all! Um.. I mean, good morning! Errr... let's go with Happy Wednesday and hope you have a fun WOYWW! Thanks for stopping by. :)

Sorry I am so late getting by this week but I wanted to pop by and visit your blog to say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse
