Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday # 64

Good morning, am up early crafting again, does anyone else wake up in the middle of the night, with lots of ideas and has to play? Probably just me, I do have some weird and wonderful dreams, lol! Anyway, I thought I would get organised and do my What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday! Us mad WOYWW's share our desks/creations/recent purchases each week, a cult started off by the lovely Julia @ Stamping - Ground . If you haven't already joined it, then do so this week!

I am so sorry if I didn't manage to get round to you last week, I do apologise. My computer seemed to have a meltdown. I will endeavour to visit all blogs this week.

On my desk this morning, well as you can see, its a bit of a dumping zone again! My lovely puss, knocked over a glass of juice which ruined some samples that I had finished, so everything had to be moved. Anyway, I have forgiven her as soon after she came and gave me a big cuddle to say sorry, lol!

To start with some canvases that I am working with for a DT project, Bo Bunny papers, QK dies, Distressed Inks, Kohr-I-Noor pencils that I have found again, Doodlebug stone sets in various colours, new stamps and embellishments and my usual suspects, scissors, tape, etc.

Here is a lovely wooden cat that I recently found in a small craft shop, just love it!

Here are my recent purchases, SU 'Bird on a Branch' set & some felt flowers & leaves, they are so lovely, I should have brought two sets so I wouldn't have to use them, lol! Is it just me who does this extravagant thing with papers & embellishments? I am sure I am not the only one that duplicates everything, or am I, lol????

Am off out today with my girls, Amy is off today, so its not often the four of us get to go shopping, can't wait! Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hi hun, thank you for your lovely comment about my mum - we never stop being our parents' little girls do we, even when they aren't with us any more.

Lush interesting desk this week, you always have such fab stuff to show! Don't know about the middle of the night but I'm often to be found at my craft desk at 6am, squeezing in a hour of fun before going to work.

Big hugs, Nicki, xx

Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts said...

Hi heidi, busy desk going on there. I have to have a book & pen or my phone next to the bed to note down my flashes of inspiration in the middle of the night!! I've not crafted in the nicht but I do draw if I can't sleep!! x

The Paper Princess said...

Oh Heidi, what sweet shares these are! You just know that kitty melted my heart and I love your SU goodies too!

No, I also wake up in the middle of the night (provided I've even slept!) full of ideas - sometimes I get up in the night if they are burning in my brain to work on them - sometimes I keep a notebook next to the bed to jot them down! Sometimes my best ideas come that way!

Have a wonderful week (and get some sleep!)


Thistleblue said...

Evening Heidi,
our cat has a wee habit of knocking things off my desk and once poured a wee pot of turps over some projects that were ruined... :-( i think she makes up for it though in being such a cutie!
Hope you've had a great WOYWW!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

What lovely new items to add to your stash. Love the cat. Goes without saying.

I often wake with ideas and rush to play before they become nothing more than a memory. Looks like I'm not alone. Happy WOYWW

Doone said...

Hi Heidi,

Love the little owl in that pack, and I do eant to see your finished project the gathered pieces look very promising,

Lin B confesses to wakinginthe night this week - with crafty thoughts,

I am a 'can't go to bed when on a roll' type of person - I can't get to sleep in the first place if my thoughts are racing!!! So not often i get up earlier than i absolutely have to

Serendipity (Christine) said...
