WOYWW 189 - Wednesday 16th January

Hi Friends and fellow WOYWWers!

I'm back for the second time today, to share what's on my desk this Wednesday..well this is what it looked like a matter of minutes ago! This is my second week of joining in with WOYWW, to find out what it's all about, check  Stamping Ground by following this link

Last night (sighs) I had one of those sleepless nights where there we lots of ideas whirring around in my problem is that there is so much I want to do and so little time in a week to do it! You see,  I go to work, but Wednesdays and Fridays are my days at home and goodness do those hours fly by!

I've really had a huge urge to get back into scrapbooking lately, mostly due to us doing some clearing out from our box room over Christmas and looking through rather sadly bulging boxes of old photos waiting to be scanned and scrapbooked. The first thing I did this morning was pick a few photos from years back with the aim of making a few 'all about me' pages, memories from my teenage years. I saw some ideas for this in a recent issue of 'Scrap 365' and it made me think that I need to out some favourite 'me' memories in one place, because I never have! I scanned them, decided on some 12x12 paper to use, printed and mounted them - and that's as far as I got because there were cards I had to make!

So the photos are there on my desk as I am going to have a play when I finish writing this, there is also a guy card and tag I made using an inking and mica technique and a blue card using embossing and distress ink - this is for an extra workshop we are doing for a local craft group next I am now really inky today, just how I like to be!

Thanks for stopping and looking at my desk, I look forward to visiting other WOYWW's this week,

  3. A great look at your workspace Carole, love the blue card at the front, it is very elegant. Also love all your bits and bobs on the window ledge too. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #35

  4. Enjoy getting back into scrapping! Great, busy desk!! I love your white storage thingy! Now following your blog too1 Sarah x WOYWW 133

  5. It is my second week too, Carole. I started a scrapbook last year did loads and then have not touched it for ages because cards got in the way, it will have to be on my list now that you have reminded me.

  6. It's amazing how minds are like butterflies and flit from one thing then digress to another - lol! Your desk looks lovely - very active!!!

    Can't wait to see your scrapbook pages!! Oh and I love the tag you have made - gorgeous colour!

    Big hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  7. What a good idea to scrapbook some pages about you. I need to start my scrapbook on finding my dad after 30yrs it will be great to get everything in one place.

  8. Good for you for scanning the photos and making a start on your massive scrapping project. I need to do that, too. I think we get overwhelmed by the sheer volume, so just starting, taking that first step is HUGE! Thank you so much for joining my blog! I've returned the flavor! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #64

  11. Great cards work has an annoying way of getting in the way of crafting - I am not sharing a desk as away from home looking after my friends cattery but enjoying having a good look around everyone else's desk
