What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?

Well, a Glossy Accents bottle doing his best snowman impression and the remains of my sanity...
I have probably said it a million times this week but my life is ruled by my desk at the mo. I'm off on my hols in Holland tomorrow, so this past week has been mega intense on the fingers and Mojo getting all my projects and DT work done. Just onto some final details and can now see the faint sight of land in the distance. Phew indeed. But still loving it all big time...


And...hooray! August's My Mojo Monthly is up!!! Inspiration, projects, a challenge, a giveaway and a great interview with Kim Dellow. I've chosen a Muse & Use it theme and the photo on the left is a detail from my envelope art idea. Do come and visit and join the journey and be nice to your Mojo this summer!
Here is a dusky shot of a card made last night in between DT shifts. I'm still on board with the fun at EWV. Manic timing but couldn't resist. Really falling for Wendy Vecchi pretties! Whilst sweating and puffing hubby says, "You don't have to do everything you know."
"But me woman. She craft," I retort.
Stripes, polka dots, flowery stuff and a pit-stop in the card making zone. Always a fine place to linger.

So that's me done for Wednesday. Hop over to funsome Julia's to join in with the desk stalking and feel free to join in whatever you're up too. I'll be hopping in and out during my hols. Wishing you all the week you need.
Hope to see you at My Mojo Monthly (such a subtle hint),

Farewell my lovelies,

Sarah.

SueH said...

Aww Sarah, it makes me tied just reading all that you’ve been up to this week but at least you have a nice restful break to look forward to.

I really love the flower card, the colours are fab and a nice bit of sewing too! I’m not brave enough to try that on a card yet because I know I would muck it up.

Happy Crafting!

Lots of craftiness on your desk, hope you get all the DT work done. I'm loving your mojo monthly, I took pic etc for the first one, but didn't manage to make them into something but I will have a go, I definitely want to join in with the second let's hope I will have time as summer tends to be busy with hols etc. I just wanted you to know that you are really inspiring me, and I will share eventually :-).

I'd be lying if I didn't say that your card is gorgeous! You must work well under pressure because your work doesn't show any signs of mayhem and trying to do it all! Well done. Enjoy your holidays!

Morti said...

I'm a bit late getting here, but never mind! Work here as always is gorgeous, laced with a healthy dose of humour (me woman - ROFL). Keep up the fab work and enjoy your well-deserved holiday in the lowlands. I envy you the craft shops there!
