What's on your workdesk Wednesday???

With just a mere blink and breath behind us, we find ourselves on the Wednesday bus once again... all thanks to our Chief Lady Speaker Julia. If you don't mind virtual stalkers in your crafty zone, feel free to join in and just share whatever is going down your way! Don't forget! Next week is WOYWW ATC Anniversary week! (Count me in, if the baby ain't out!)
A rare bit of inky play here. Rare because despite big crafty deadlines, I had to be a strict damsel and completely ban myself from La-De-Dah until yesterday. Baby, house and DIY stuff just could not wait..and trying to do it all at once led to nothing but a frazzled brain. Choose one path and walk it I say!

Been working hard on Craft Stamper projects, but can't show you those, also on June's My Mojo Monthly... can't show that yet, and I haven't had the baby yet, so I can't show you that either!

After clearing up I had a load of left-over ink and scraps so I threw them together and made a quick tag for Everything Wendy Vecchi. A girl has gotta play...
Ebay bargain alert! Fab, no longer, made, Tim stamps complete with a wee scribble from Mr. H himself.
l sneaked in a dinky card for Less is More. It's a baby week so I just couldn't quite let it pass this time... I die cut a heart out of my embossed front and added a typed insert.

A simple design with 'on the fence' colours - just as we are here too!
My crafty abstinence and super-hero hubby made a good team! Miraculously we turned a corner house-wise after months of chaos. Just the last few touches to do now. My 41 year old teddy and Flemish books are all set... 37 weeks today. I may still be WOYWWing for a while longer yet. The rest is down to Mother Nature and gravity!
Have a great week, enjoy the sun, flashes of the Olympic flame and whatever takes your fancy... Sarah.

Good morning
Lovely to see the baby card and ted on his chair. Bingo - I had to have a cleaning day myself yesterday, it was a tip and I put big ted on the rocker with a blanket over his legs. He looks so cosy. The kiddywinks next door will go made when they see him. They love to throw him on the floor and roll all over him but then they lie on him and have quiet time with blankets covering them all. Lovely !
Hope you don't get to tired with the heat.
Take care.

Helen said...

You list lots you can't share - but so glad you DO share your teddy!! I have a toy panda I received when I was 2, that I still treasure (despite him being in a drawer under my bed) so he is fast approaching 51. yikes! Hope we see you next week for the anniversary! Helen, 17

Annie said...

Such a lot of promise in the next few weeks :-) It's all so exciting. I had another friend here yesterday who only has 2 weeks to go so the race is on :-)
Don't forget I am [nearly] on route to the hospital so if things get urgent call by and I would be happy to catch it for you :-) Stay well and rest lots......would make for a very interesting WOYWW for next week ;-)

Ah bless you - that corner looks gorgeous and now teddy has a place to sit. Loving your card and your thrown together tag - it doesn't look thrown together it looks awesome and how gorgeous are those stamps!

Neil said...

Hi there, just popping in to visit for WOYWW. It's lovely to see so many creative spaces! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us curious folk! Love the vibrant tag (I spied Dylusions on your desk so I'm guessing they made an appearance on the tag! Love the chair and bear too! I hope you have a good week.

I'm loving the sounds of all the things we can't see this week, including the baby. You absolutely KNOW it has to make it's debut on a WOYYW Wednesday laying on your desk!! Very pretty card as usual and great tag too. Those stamps looks like they should be a collectors item!

Lovely tag, Sarah, and loved the wee peak into the nursery. Hope you are coping well with the heat ... my recollection is that it can be most uncomfortable when you are pregnant and it's not as if you can peal down to a bikini either :) Both my pregnancies took me through to early August in Germany and it was hot! Good luck with clearing the decks before the big event. Elizabeth x #127
