WOYWW #223

Hi Everyone!  I am coming to you very late on Wednesday afternoon here to join in with my fellow deskers in linking up to the wonderful Julia's What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday.

Again this week, I have spent more time on the computer than crafting but in saying that my blog has been neglected.  I think this is the first time in a long time I have not done a single post in 7 days.

I do have a good excuse though, I have been working hard on a new creative project which kicks off officially for me in October, unofficially it has meant a lot of time glued to the screen, sending emails, and all sorts of other computer related activities.

Craftwise I have been working towards the completion of one Design Team Project as inspiration grabbed me and because I can't share the project just yet......I really can't show you my desk, but thought I'd show some of the products I have been playing with which are currently on my desk.



You will find Gel Medium, Black Paint and Punchinella, a Weathered Background Stamp, some Chipboard Pieces and some German Scrap Scroll Corners that I have given a makeover to in order for it to blend in with my project.

It really hasn't given too much away now has it?.....lol. 

This past weekend we all helped out 'A's Scout Group with a BBQ fundraiser on Election Day and on Sunday we had to empty out, sort out and move a shed full of junk (my hubby doesn't call it that) from our old house which we have just recently sold after completing renovations and the new owners are wanting to rent it from us prior to settlement.

The highlight of the past week, was finally having a chance to go on a date night with my hubby last night.  It was only for the duration of whilst 'A' was at scouts but it was so nice to dine out and get some alone time.  

Finally I thought I'd leave you today with a picture of a desk, just not mine.  Its where 'A' does his homework and his best mate Felix likes helping him, especially with his maths.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

PS.  There's still time to enter my Birthday Blog Candy Giveaway (check it out on my sidebar).

Oh such a teaser post. I can't wait to see what you do with all those products.

I know what you mean about not keeping up blogging. My boys started school last week and I still haven't gotten it together to post.

Have a blessed day!

Nancy said...

I can't wait to see what you make with with those items! How nice to have a homeworker helper. Twenty extra toes to count with can come in handy!

Julia Dunnit said...

Such a cute pic of A and his math companion! Well done on the collage of desk shots - no it doesn't give much away..I have no imagination. Wouldn't it be interesting to give 5 people those things and see what they all came up with!!

Carole said...

Very interesting. Look forward to the completion. Just randomly snooping...how do you choose where to snoop? Be well Carole #110

Julie Ann Lee said...

Can't wait to see what you create with those bits and pieces - looks intriguing! I'm late today too, as I've had lots to do helping my mum with her house sale and sorting out all she has hoarded over 34 years in the same house! Felix must be such a help at homework time! Our cat Daisy is hopeless with figures and she can't tell the time even - she always thinks it's dinner time!!! Julie Ann xx #42

Thanks for stopping by my website and I'm glad you like the unfinished Owl. Watch out for the finished article, maybe next week! All your items look intriguing - you will show us all the finished item(s) won't you? Have a good week, kind regards, John-W #58.

Twiglet said...

Thanks for the lovely comment re Jacquie's workspace - she read my blog and the comments and was really touched by all the positivity. Thanks for the snoop round yours! x Jo

Daniella said...

Hi Danie!
I can't wait to see your project!! Looks so interesting! I saw you inking German Scrap, but the whole thing? No.
And, no again. My smaller desk isn't for the computer. Sadly, it is filled with works in progress. I am a very organized crafter!! But a very messy crafter too :(
Glad you had fun on your date!

Robin Panzer Art said...

Thanks for the peek at your desk! Your Kitty is so adorable. Happy WOYWW

Julie Short said...

All very mysterious Danie! Wonderful news about your house and date too!
Love your cat photo.

Nan G said...

Pretty helper for 'A'! Nice sneak peeks too. Can't wait to see the whole finish project. Thanks for the earlier visit! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #92

Tonya said...

What fun products!!! I'd love to see how you used them!
How nice you got a quick date...seems that's all we get sometimes but they can be just as meaningful. :)
Thanks for sharing and for vising my blog.
Kitties are always welcome guests for homework, aren't they? :)

Zella said...

Hmm, now my curiosity is up - not only what your project will be - but what your new creative project in October will be too! :) Love the kitty - so adorable. I have 3 fur babies that live inside with me and it seems like I can't create one thing without having a kitty hair in it somewhere. Love the new look of your blog too!!

Eliza said...

I also like the look of your blog so clean and neat. Kitty Max is just beautiful, I love it when they participate in our lives like that, these are the good things we will remember years down the track. Interesting products, now to see what you do with them.

Thanks for visiting me and sorry for getting back to you so late, working horrible hours ATM and not much time spare.

Happy Belated WOYWW
