Well today my worktop is significantly clearer than it was last week. We are going away for a long weekend and then a few days after we get back my sister is coming so I have had to do some of the clearing now and the rest before she arrives.

So all that is on my desk are two finished cards, a new home one and a new baby one, and they are both for the same couple, moved on Friday, baby born at 2.15 the next morning.
Otherwise my desk just shows the box full of Christmas card makings, the Bigshot and box of tools.
Oh I have just realised that there is a brooch on there that I made in a workshop last Thursday, all made from printed parchment, very simple but very effective.
That's me today folks, but I am certain that there are lots of more exciting desks out there, so I'm off to visit the Desk Mistress at The Stamping Ground to do some snooping. Are you coming too? There is a feast of crafty stuff to see there.
Thanks for dropping by and Happy Woyww

Morning, Chris. Glad you got that baby card finished - well done, it looks great! Sooo much nearer ready for your sister than the other day.. another well done! Seems like you have been really busy since I saw you Monday. But, do tell, whatever is that little green thingy at the front of your desk?
Have a great time away this weekend - enjoy. Hope you find the bits for your boat if you go that far!
Take care. God bless.

Maybe it was the excitement of moving house that made the baby arrive LOL! Have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 38

Love the home card, I have to make one for someone that has just moved into their new home, so a few ideas are still floating around with that, thanks for the inspiration. Love the baby card too. Gosh I do hope the baby was due when it came and the moving didn't force the issue. Hope you have a wonderful crafty week.

Hi I'm back and am really enjoying the adventure of setting up my new creative space in our new home. I've really missed catching up with all my blogging friends but hopefully over the next day or so I will pay you all a visit.
Thank you for your earlier visit and for your lovely comments...we will get there but it's going to take time and patience. A special thank you for the gorgeous card you sent us :-)
