WOYWW #52

Good Morning Peeps!!

How are you all doing? I got both my kiddies off school today, they somehow have a cold. How on earth do you get a cold in the middle of the desert when the temperature is nearly 50 degrees c?


I have missed Julia's 'Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday' for the past two weeks - I tell you, doing this every Wednesday makes you realise just how quickly the weeks are going! But this week is very special as it is a whole year that this WOYWW has been going on - such a shame I only found it in the past coulple of months!! So then, whats on my desk this week: Bit messy again to be honest, but will tidy it up later! Have been trying to get on top of all my challenge cards until September since I will be in the UK for 2 months without my stash (OMG, how long?!!!) I also picked up these earrings and necklace from Claire's accessories - they were all like 15p each so thats a bargain...just gotta think of what I want to do with them!! Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Right, suppose I should get this posted so that I can go and nose around your desks!
Thanks for stopping by!

How pants am I - didn't realise I had to do a project to celebrate....sorry Julia!!

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh Leanne lots of tape peelings - suppose DT cards can'tbe shown off too soon huh! Why are you coming over here for 2 months and do you wanna come play with my stash while you're here????

First I have been looking for just the right feather to make into a stamp, and a trip to claire's never occurred to me. Second, I have those slatted ikea pen cases too, but my pencils continually fall out the bottom or the whole thing falls over. Did you line the base of yours?

Wow, being gone two months without your supplies will be a LONG time. You really got some bargains. Can't wait to see what you do with them. Happy WOYWW.

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

What a bargain you found. You could use those feathers for a dream catcher and then put that on a birthday card saying hope all your dreams come true. Thanks for the snoop, have a great Wednesday, Tracy Evans x x

Wow! Those earrings are fantastic! I can imagine them as a headdress for a doll! Patsy from

Bettythebaglady said...

You could wear them-LOL. I have a pair of earrings from peacock feathers with beads threaded on them.Still wear them when in flamboyant mood. Thinks-don't think I would have had the patience to thread them. Two months without craft stuff-think you might weaken and dash into a shop!Hugs BettyXXXX

Linda Elbourne said...

Don't you just love a bargain - great desk this week and good to see you back!

Tracey said...

If you are in the midlands during your 2 month UK visit just drop me a line, I have lots of stash you can play with and we dont want you getting withdrawal symptoms.

Paula Gale said...

wow - those earings were a find!!!- I can see those on a ladies hat - especially if you did a silhouette of a lady in a hat - the feather just being the finishing touch.
