Whats on your Hip Hip Hooray Celebratory Workdesk Wednesday???

Hello and a big welcome to this Anniversary mid-week moment as WOYWWers celebrate three years of desk memoires and confessions. All thanks to the one and only Mrs Julia Stamping Ground Dunnit. The occasion is of such grandeur, Mrs D has taken to Spanish shores to rejoice. Olé! My Wednesdays (and sleeping habits) are forever changed!
But in all seriousness, I am so very grateful indeed to Julia for WOYWW? It helped me take my first plunge into Blogdom, has brought lots of wonderful new artful friends and keeps me on sane ground! Thank you Julia. You are a real star!
Well, obviously I'm still around and so is the 38 week baby belly. Apart from my inflatable-dinghy feet, I'm feeling just fine and very energetic. It's all systems go with my Design Team projects. Almost done! It's one thing making them, blogging it all is a real chore. I've become Bloggled eyed. June's My Mojo Monthly is ready to rumble too! Here's a sneaky look - come back Friday for the full story!
My only play time has been in my Art Journal. This page is just a bit of fun, with a small statement too. I am someone, in life and crafting, who seems to dabble with all moods and views. Sometimes girly, sometimes Grungy...
and LOTS of this, that and the other in between. But for the record, even when it's all flowers and girly stuff galore... "I do sweet, not cute." I rest my case. I've got a full-on inky day ahead so I'm off to chase my final deadline. I'm in with the ATC swap - so I'll be hunting my partner down very soon! 
A Big Happy WOYWW to all! Adios! Sarah.

Your desk looks fabulously busy and creative and your art journal page is gorgeous!

Loving the look of your sneak peek too. Happy WOYWW anniversary! :)


RosA said...

Beautiful colours in your journal! Yes, they are "sweet" not "cute"!
If you would like to swap one of those gorgeous tags (some weeks ago) for an ATC (or two), just let me know (but, please, don't feel obliged). Happy 3rd WOYWW Anniversary!

Hi there, just popping in to wish you a happy WOYWW 3rd anniversary! Who would have thought it would grow to be such a weekly treat for us all to catch up and see so much inspiring creativity! Here's toasting the next year.....

CraftygasheadZo said...

Yay glad you made it, was wondering if baby would appear on this day, that would be a special WOYWW pic! Loving your journal pages, I must try to do this, I get scared that I'll mess it up. Take care & enjoy this special WOYWW. Zo xx 43

Cardarian said...

Happy WOYWW ! I would like to ask you for your address as you are getting an ATC from me - you always inspire me so you must have something from me! The baby is taking its time but never mind - ha, ha you will never be as close as you are now!!!
Love and lots of hugs,

April said...

Wow! stunning page!! loving the colours! Happy WoYwW 3rd Anniversary :o) April #108 x

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Happy 3rd WOYWW!!
I don't do 'cute' either, LOL! love the colours you've used on that page though :)
Glad everything is going ok - I think my ankles are joining in and I'm not even pregnant! Have been doing a lot of the yoga exercises where you lie on the carpet with your legs at 90 degrees up a wall. Bizarre but fantastic for circulation (don't know if it's safe when you're expecting though...)
Julia has to be congratulated for creating this wonderful, supportive, MAD, arty network of folk.
I love it....
Hugs, LLJ #77 xx

Redanne said...

Glad you are still here, I think baby is determined not to come until all your DT work is done! Love your journal page, it is gorgeous - and yes, sweet too. Take care. Happy WOYWW Anniversary, Anne x #38

france papillon said...

and i thank Julia to give us the oppertunity to have a sneek at such inspiring desks as yours. your journal page is sheer yumminess as is your DT piece!
seems like our feet are having the same problem, though mine isn't in any way related to a happy upcoming event, lol.
have a happy week!
france, #97 xx

Ann B said...

Shame about the feet - see not only your belly gets bigger with pregnancy.
Love your journal pages, so colourful they make me smile, and you are teasing us with the peek at Friday's post, the tin(?) looks gorgeous.
Happy WOYWW and maybe next week you will have a very different creation to show us - one with fingers and toes.

Twiglet said...

Think I need to sit with my feet up a wall too like Jan - my ankles always feel puffy in hot weather! Hope you are able to keep cool and relaxed.
Happy WOYWW 3rd anniversary.
We have made some fab blogging friends through our mad blog hop haven't we!!

OH Sara, Your work is fabulous as always! I just love visiting your blog!

HEY, I put an asterik after my name but right after the fact and it looked like it took, but now that I see it today, I don't see one after it:( Anyway, if it isn't too late, can you send an atc to me and I will send one to the gal after me? If not, let me know.

What a gorgeous and bright art journal page, it is lovely to just mess around some times. Wishing you all the best in the coming months.

okienurse said...

love your art journal page. Those last weeks of pregnancy can be challenging but oh so worth the wait! I received the Craft Stamper magazine and subscribed last week. Awesome work! Sorry I am so late getting by but figured better late then never!! Happy 3rd Anniversary of WOYWW! Thanks for sharing. Have a great week. Vickie #178

Eliza said...

Not much longer and the little one will arrive, I bet you just can't wait? Great creativity on the desk with the tin and the journal page is awesome and so full of color.

Happy 3rd Anniversary WOYWW

Marjie Kemper said...

Awesome art, my friend! I can't take my eyes off the sardine tin... really, I've tried but I can't seem to look away. The wire to control depth = brilliant! And the strip of embossed foil = stunning. I really had to think that one out as I couldn't figure how you'd embossed the tin itself! Hope Bambino is treating you well as the big day draws ever nearer!

Morti said...

Hi Sarah! Not long to go now, eh.... I hope you'll share a photo of the new arrival when they...arrive... LOL Love the art journal.

Sorry to be so late getting round this week - the Queen's Jubilee got in the way!

Happy WOYWW!
