What's on your workdesk Wednesday?

Good morning to the mid week crafty moment known as What's on your workdesk Wednesday? hosted by Mrs. "Bust-My-Big-Shot" Dunnit. I can't believe I am here for another week as I thought last week might be a one hit wonder. Every week I think to myself that life with a baby can't get any busier. One little person is intent to prove me wrong and now that Ruby's nap phobia and i-pad envy have set in, my visits to Bloggy land are like gold-dust.
Meanwhile back on Planet Desk we have a few signs of life. As usual a very grubby craft mat and this was the clean side. A tag in progress. A huuuuuuuge tag at that too. I think I mis-read the measurements in my haste to get an order in and ended up with these whoppers. A rather kitsch clock too, thanks to car booty hubby. Tis a wee bit too Michelangelo for me. Hmmm, the jury is still out on a possible revamp.

I just played around with paint, ink and sprays on my tag to keep the fingers and mind well-oiled. After a pretty organised and disciplined life, I am still learning the art of go with the flow in my now very domestic domain and that led to me making up this statement. It seems to me that getting the pink spray ink out is a cue for a needy baby moment. I should have taken up Origami.
Well, I will love you and leave you as it is Silly O' Clock yet again and time doth ticketh. Thank you so much to all who called by last week and welcomed me back. Hoping to catch up with you all soon.
Farewell for now,

Hi Sarah, I missed you last week - don't ask? - but it is so good to see you back and crafting - even if the time allotted is scarcer than hen's teeth. At least you haven't lost your sense of humour :) Baby Ruby is looking just beautiful - with a smile to launch a few ships and break even more hearts, I see :) Hope to see you back again next week. Elizabeth xx

I love the tag, the colours and layers are fantastic. I'm sure you could "do something" with the clock! Babies certainly make up for a lack of size with taking over a house!! Hugs. Pam#27

Thrilled to see you and read of your embracing the go with the's just better that way for now, really. Better yet, you're managing some desk time and tht is, believe me, a huge achievement ..specially when you get right back into making real art..loving the tag and the real words!
I quite like the a plain monster in amongst all your colour and clean lines...

I just adore that tag... no bones abut it... it is fab! I can understand you stepping down from any crafty commitment outside of the family. You have been doing wonderful stuff for your DT work but it's no good if it's putting pressure on you.
Babies are only young once and you cannot get back the precious time when they are little. Enjoy every minute.

Pretty artsy fartsy tag - love all the colors.

Dianne said...

Hey Sarah, kool you could WOW us again.Loving the clock, I know you will do something fabulous on it. Your large tags are fabulous, the colors, the stamping is wonderful, you have created a gorgeous mess, love your sentiment it fits perfectly, I love big tags, so probably not a mistake:), wishing you lots of "gold dust" and maybe a wee nap for Mom...

Giggle, pink became part of my mostly grunge colour life after I had been pregnant too ;)

Your tag is a real whopper, not only because of its size! I LOVE the vivid colours and that it spreads a lot of joy and fun!

Hugs and have a wonderful WW!
