WOYWW ~#3


Hello all! This will be my third (or fourth?) attempt to get my desk on WOYWW with much help and despairing from Janet at Fairythoughts. I may well have cracked it.



This week on my desk, I am starting a new project, which is why it all looks neat and a little laid-out. I'm not going to say what it is I am making as they are going to be presents for some of my friends and I know that they look here sometimes. Best not to give the game away, I say.

The item will comprise of a tin can, electrical tape, tissue paper, wallpaper paste and the plastic tube innards from the inside of till rolls I've been saving at work since about March. I like to recycle.

So, tonight I will be seeing if I can knock one of these together. Tomorrow is my day off and I am hoping to be able to find the time to start getting my homemade wrapping paper together. I still need to find the cross stitch motifs I made earlier this year as they are going on Christmas cards. Then, more decorations and stockings to be made, AND WRAPPING EVERYTHING!

Have a look at the other WOYWW desk at Stamping Ground

See you next week!

  12. Hi Lucy, Is this your first showing at WOYWW then? Welcome to the weekly party. Please could you leave your link-up number in future as I had a heck of a job finding you and often don't bother returning visits if a number isn't left. Also I see you reply to comments on your blog - not sure if you send these replies to the actual people directly as well but if not I doubt they know they are there at all which is a shame.
    Oh and finally you desk - so intriguing can't wait to see what you make, and I made the stamp with Funky Foam and Diecuts. BJ#5

    PS Please take the word verification thingy off, you could still moderate if you so choose. I will try 3 times max to send this else I give up on that too. With so many people to visit, things just need to be easy, don't you agree?

  19. Hi there, Lucy!! Thank you for commenting on my blog :) That's an interesting and eclectic mix of items on your desk - what on earth are you going to make with those?? What a tease!! :)
    I love C&H, it's full of gorgeous fabrics and things to buy. I like the fact that it's ever so slightly old fashioned too! If I worked there, I'd spend all my wages on stash, lol!
    Hugs, LLJ #36 xx

    PS Your pumpkin carving was THE best I've seen this year!
