Wednesday already? Again? Eeep, time seems to be flying by atm.

Wednesday is of course the day where crafters the world over share a peek at what's going on on their workdesks/crafty spaces. So here's what's on mine:

No active crafting going on atm. I had every intention of getting in the craft room tonight but DD2 had other ideas... our schedule was a bit all over the place today and she ended up having a late afternoon nap... which meant, despite me delaying bedtime, she apparently decided sleeping was not on the agenda and pitched a fit instead. So she didn't go successfully to bed until gone 9pm!

But anyhooo... on the main desk this morning is a recently-completed card, together with the usual detritus of the crafting process.

And on the "spare" desk....

Well, would ya look at that? The desk that I lovingly cleared only a week ago is now covered in stuff again. And d'ya know what? It's actually not my fault! Most of the stuff on there was dumped there last weekend by DH on one of his occasional "tidying" sessions... you know, the ones where he "tidies" the rest of the house by basically clearing everything off every surface and dumping it in my craft room instead! Grrrrr.

The one positive thing in this picture is the in-progress art journal CJ entry on the desk.

And that's it from me. Short and sweet. We've got a busy day tomorrow with a couple of appointments and a shopping trip to buy school uniform for DD1 for when she starts pre-school hours at the local primary/junior school in September! Eeep!

I thought I'd get a head start on my desk hopping today even though Mr Linky has gone AWOL. ;D
I thought you're desk looked heaped with lots going on until I saw you're spare desk!!!
Don't you just love it when helps arrives like that?!?!
Big days ahead... I remember the days of buying school uniforms. Bitter sweet :D
I hope all goes brave now!

Lovely card and journal, so colourful. You'll see I'm at the stage of lengthening uniform as my son's legs are now even longer than mine but his waist isn't any bigger, such a lovely beanpole. LOL BJ#19

Hi Ali,

I feel as though your deskS are calling my name..... would love to come over and play.

Your card and page look great.

Love both your messy desks! Consider yourself lucky to have a husband who tidies, mine NEVER does. And he won't let me touch his stuff, so our bedroom is mostly neat, until we look at his side - looks like a bomb hit it! Luckily I'm in charge of the rest of the house (except his are in the man cave) or the whole house would look like that! have a great week!

Ali, what a busy looking desk. Thanks to Sue I've just got some Dilly Bean Stamps and look forward to making them into cards when I am able to craft again (not done any for 5 weeks now boo hoo). Best wishes, Kym xxx
