So here we are again, another Wednesday, another day of snooping, courtesy of the lovely  Julia at her Stamping Ground. Lots of super desks to peruse and be amazed at, and lots of sensational craft and creations to drool over, and and praise.
Then there is my desk which at 9pm on Tuesday was singularly uninspiring.
Very little has happened on  my desk since last week, a very busy few days, and the weekend away feeding the gannets, have meant I have not had much time to do much crafting.
On the left is an unfinished symphony with stamping and gems, but it has not turned out how i want it to and then in the centre I have just 'put' a few bits of card in preparation to make a pink and purple card for a friend, so somehow in my busy day today, I have to find the time to create for her birthday on Thursday.
Further to the right is a pile of magazines, I have been doing some major sorting of stuff, and these will go first to my card club, and then if there are any left over they will go to the charity shop.
Now I have a bit apology to make.From the comments I got last week, I clearly made your mouths water at the mention of the marmalade cake I was going to make for the weekend. Well I have to confess it never got made. I just decided that the strongly flavoured homemade marmalade would taste too strong for young palettes, so I chickened out and made chocolate cake. We had a brilliant weekend, in a field in the middle of nowhere, and everything I put in front of them just disappeared, very rewarding.
So I am done here, I'm off to do that creating and some visiting,
Thanks for popping by

No my mouth is watering. Just the mention of c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e...
I guess I will just have to bake. I hope you get your card finished in time. Peg #20

The earth didn't swallow me (grin), but I've been really busy. I'm back now, so wanted to stop by and see what was on your desk. I agree that chocolate cake sounds pretty good about now. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

Never let that stop you - you could always send a marmalade cake this way, or invite me round for a cuppa! I hope the break from your desk will give you fresh ideas when you get back there to do the card. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 3

I'm glad the weekend went well. You probably did the right thing in making a chocolate cake.
Thank you for letting me have a peep of your workspace.
Have a good week

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to get caught up this week. I peeked about your WOYWW post in past weeks and I love the 3 Wisemen Dies. Not seen them around.
I often wonder why I cannot make known birthday cards somewhat ahead of time, instead of the few days before they should be mailed. I need to improve that aspect of my crafty time. !!! Your out door time sounds fun. I am dreading our fall coming to an end. It has been so beautiful and great temps. Enjoy a fun weekend once again

Well done on the sorting out! I love sorting and's quite cathartic :-)
And we can salivate over choccy cake just as much as the other!!
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

Love the look of the 'unfinished symphony'- beautiful. i think we all tend to be last minute for cards we need- what are we like! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #28 xx

I'm sure the youngsters absolutely loved your chocolate cake, but I would much prefer the marmalade, that sounds delish. I'm glad all your hard work was enjoyed.

Well done on feeding all those youths! At least they ate everything lol. I've been trying to do a bit of a sort out too, like everyone I've just got way too much stuff, time to pass some of it on. Hope you got the birthday card made. Yeah, the socks have become a bit of an addiction if I'm honest, I want to make other things SOOOOO badly but for some reason I keep casting on socks!!
