What's on your Workdesk Wednesday???

Welcome to another WOYWW? Join in by visiting Top of the Crop Queen Julia. Well, this may well be the tidiest place in the house at the moment... 'Tis chaos, toooooo busy and takes 20 minutes to find matching clean socks. Decorations continue with the joys of floor sanding... Nothing beats crafting to the sound of a 140 decibel mean machine with tremors reaching 9.2 on the Richter Scale. It's an all on the go shot here as I prepare for a week away in Belgium and Holland starting with a lovely day out...
in the passport office today. Both the red book and my brain have expired it seems...
A little twirl in the spotlight... If you want to see a bit more of the inky zone and read yet more waffle from my lips, then you can do both with this month's Craft Stamper where I'm the Meet & Greet damsel. Will have to upgrade the cheesy photo as I had all my hair chopped off today. Two foot of tresses all cut and swept away...

Over at Less is More it's Shades of Green. I restrained from stamping an envious ecological worker and went for bikes. This lovely little stamp is from a set by Indigo Blu and the sentiment Hero Arts.
I worked with Distress Inks as they give a slightly more faded image and the colours progressed nicely too...
Just a reminder of April's My Mojo Monthly Challenge where we are Tagging it! I thought tags would make some rather nice bunting... all in Julia's favourite colours!
So that's that...gotta go get me a passport, pack the suitcases and ignore the chaos here for a week. Thanks so much for all the visits and wishes... I'm just about hanging in there!
See you soon, Sarah.

LOL - would that be the seven shades of wee Julia is often on about? Hehehehe! Shame about the hair - we'd probably have like to see before and after pics....

Happy WOYWW

Hi Sarah,

Have a great vacation! I bet you won't know what to do without the noise of home improvement. I always enjoy seeing what you are up to - love the bike card and the tag bunting is very cool.

And how many weeks is this that you've been number 1?

Hugs,

You've lost your tresses? I did the same thing when I was pregnant for the first time - makes mornings just that little bit easier! Hope you're pleased with your new 'do'! Love the green and those tags are a delight! Have a wonderful break!

Another interesting desk - huh and you are the Meet and Greet damsel aye?? All my Craft Stampers are waiting for me at my DBFs so I will be reading them in just about 2 days! YIPEEE!!! Shame about your hair but I guess with having a baby it is much more practical!
LIM card - gorgeaus!
Lots of hugs,
Cardarian

Julia Dunnit said...

Thing is,in your hands even the wee wee shades look fab. I have the new mag but haven't looked in it yet, hurrah, a reason to go look properly! Are the works going to go on while you're away? either way, a trip to Holland will be a good break..I totally understand the sander..the noise is amazing..but wood you see, is the most efficient of conductors - did you know that!

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sarah, enjoyed reading your post today ... you have my sympathy living in what sounds like a building site, you'll need that holiday :) Lovely card - the bicycle stamp is fab - and your bunting, in Julia's seven shades of wee, is great. Whatever prompted you to have your hair cut short ... it's practical but won't you miss those lovely long tresses? Happy WOYWW and have a lovely holiday. Elizabeth x #26

Mindy Adams said...

Love the bicycles. Happy WOYWW. Thanks so much for sharing.

RosC said...

Hi Sarah. Numero uno again! I think the spell checker did your tresses a mischief, so I do hope your trestles are intact. ;-)
Love the bike stamp and what you've done with it. Happy travels.

Ali said...

Oooh d'you know, I saw your pic in Craft Stamper and read the blog section but somehow didn't connect it with this blog, despite being a follower! Doh! :lol:

I can only offer in mitigation that a week of birthday preparations, birthday party and houseguests (meaning 4 kids under 4 in the house!) has fried my brain! :lol:

Hope the sanding is completed very soon - the noise would drive me potty! At least (passport permitting) you'll be escaping for a nice break. Hope it all goes well!

Hi I really enjoyed the meet and greet in craft stamper, I was wafting it in my OH's face saying I do her mojo monthly, then in Shannons face saying she is coeliac and has a good life. Love this months mojo monthly, I don't do them often but took the plunge and have signed up for TH class, I know it's finished but you can still do it but you can't ask him anything. I looked on Dan's and found a svg for ribbon storage, the templates he sells are fantastic I'm well impressed. Love the Less is more card and your desk is yummy as always. Happy woyww :-) Kezzy xx
