WOYWW AND BOOK GIVEAWAY!!!

Good morning, afternoon, evening or even Thursday,
Could be any one considering the WOYWWers are spread over the entire world and half of us don't observe normal sleeping patterns. For the confused -  WOYWW means What's on your work desk Wednesday? In short, over at Madam Honeysuckle Julia's blog Stamping Ground, you link up a picture of your work space and everyone comes round for a peek. No dusting, manipulation or nose-jobs allowed - show and tell!!! That's the game and in two weeks time, it's the WOYWW two year anniversary where most of us are celebrating with a pay it forward gift! Come on folk - hands up - who has finished theirs???
My desk - actually looking relatively sane as I had cleaned up in between jobs for once. The wooden stamp is from a tag I just did for Grungy Monday and now I'm onto flower power snipping away at some Wendy Vecchi blooms. More on all that later in the week. I had a busy weekend with DT work which left me out of steam yesterday. I fiddled around all afternoon and evening and then binned all of it except one card which just made the cut. Had the ideas - but not the substance, so I just walked away...which was is a good and gutsy call for me.

Anyway onto my giveaway...
 I got this book a while back, not expecting too much yet it turned out to be quite alright. Full of many different projects, designs, styles, ideas and templates...a nice browse with lots you can adapt to your own tastes. It's in tip-top condition, as new, so you could also give it as a gift...no inside cover message from Auntie Flo. As I already have my own sea of books and magazines I thought somebody else might like it - so it's up for grabs wherever you live...
You don't need to limbo-dance through fire to get it, just leave a comment telling me why you'd like it and I'll pick a name for the next WOYWW. If you like to follow my blog, that'll be dandy but there's no obligation...linger, peruse and browse at leisure.

I'm off for my morning swim - best way to clean the ink off. Thanks for dropping by and I'll see you soon!

Sarah.

i have my own sea of books as well but none on card making yet so i would love to have this for inspiration. a morning swim sounds great!

Carola Bartz said...

Morning swim sounds good to me. I do Jazzercise in the morning, love the dancing.
I'd be interested in a book on card making. Yes, I do own some, but I always get some new inspiration when looking through them.

Neet said...

Nice busy desk - full of "R" products by the look of things. Hope you enjoyed your morning swim - how energetic! I'm off back to bed! #10

Dragon said...

Morning Swim... Wow! I would rather go back to bed this morning :) I'd love to have that book, sure it would inspire me to create something nice :) Hugs, kissinia

Sarah said...

your desk looks a lot like mine did this morning before I cleaned it! I like it when it looks like that though, because it means I've had time to create :)

jude said...

Helen said...

Always love looking at your desk, and today is no exception. Enjoy your swim - I can't! Hope someone loves your book.

Milla said...

Oh and I was so ready to do the limbo-dance... ;D Well, I'd like to have the book because I'd like to have the inspiration it gives plus I'd love to learn new techniques (feels like I'm stuck in a rut so could use all the help I can get...). Enjoy your swim and the rest of your day! :)

Doone said...

okay Now my poor brain is struggling, being in the uK but not ever observant of 'normal' sleeping patterns (it's my age dear) I rarely know what day or time it is and rely upon the routine of work to keep me on some sort of schedule, then, having got past your first paragraph, I leave your blog with an image of you clean and the pool pink/beige/lacy collage effect...

ha ha

I do Love your desk too...

JoZart said...

Hope you didn't turn the pool the colour of the inks you were using! Broken China? Worn Lipstick?
Great desk to snoop on... love JoZarty x

Spyder said...

Shhh! Don't tell but I quite often, Or used to when I was doing more, bin my DT cards too! Now I use a lot of that white blu tack! saves a lot of waste, coz once the pictures taken you can peel off what you don't really like or want (but have to use) and then put on what you do like! as I said...that's between you and me and... oh

umm happy woyww!

Linda Elbourne said...

Oh pooh ... I did the whole limbo dancing thing before I had gotten to the end of your post! Wendy Vecchi blooms eh??? Cannot wait to see them!

Dawn said...

Julia Dunnit said...

It was a good and gutsy call - and I bet it worked...well done! Your desk looks like a well oiled machine actually - full of stuff and intent..love that. I have the stamp you've just used...love it, so will be back to see the tag!

Good for you going for your morning swim too - I didnt go for mine - in fact I parked at the gym and then met a friend for coffee and cake at Starbucks and then drove home - forgot my kit see! tee hee. Thanks for sharing. Sunshine Girl No. 40

butlersabroad said...

Lovey desk today, I can actually see a desk which is amazing! I like to swim too but haven't been for 4 weeks for a myriad of different reasons! Never tried it as an ink remover before though! I love craft books for inspiration, but also to ooh and ahh over pretty pictures and new ideas.

Hugs

Well done with the morning swim - i bought a hula hoop a few weeks ago. I used to be able to do it as a girl - seems i am not quite the same shape now -i can't seem to keep it round what should be my waist!! lol

Chrissy said...

I still need to start my PIF. :o I'd love a card making idea book, as I am new to card making (usually a scrapbooker). Thanks for the chance to win!

Terry and Shirley SU said...

So much great stuff to play with on your desk! I love the idea of a morning swim. Maybe it'll seem a bit more appealing when and if warmer weather comes around.

Impressed with your swim in the sea must be warmer than here, although lots til swimming here, but only in wetsuits or steamers..no need of books 'fraid my ideas book is crammed to overflowing and not used enough as it is! thanks for offer though and my pIf is almost finished and been in its current state for weeks sad, huh!? Shaz in oz.x

lisa said...

I have my hand up, finished my Pif and feeling very smug!!!!! I'm not often that organised.
I love reading your blog you have a great way of writing. Well done on walking away, it's so frustrating when things just don't go right isn't it.
I'd never thought of swimming to remove the ink stains, may have to give that a go.
