We what a busy weeK I have had, and struggling with a sore throat and cough too. However, by midday Tuesday I had finsished the urgent cards, and posted them, so it was home to clear up the chaos which was my desk.
I did start,and then I found this stamp on the desk and suddenly I was at it all over again.
I have no idea where the stamp came from but is lovely, so the last 20 cards I need for Christmas may well feature this.
Oh and those inportant cards, well this was one for my sister,
but I can't show the others because the recipient may see this page and her birthday is not until Saturday,
However this was the finished birthday card for my great niece, that you saw in development last week. Her parents were thrilled with it, I 'm not sure what her reaction was since she lives in London.
Well if you're wondering why I am sharing this part of my life, it is all about What's on you worktop Wednesday and if you go to Julia's Stamping Ground  you will be welcome to peer over the shoulders of lots of crafty folk at  lots of exciting desks.
Please leave a comment, even if it is only 'Rubbish!' and I will get back to you, but it probably won't be until latish Thursday or after the weekend as I have a very busy few days ahead.
Bless you for dropping by

Wonderful cards! I'm sure the little one loved the caterpillar -- such nice bright colours and tactile to boot. I love your craftspace. You have lots of working area and all of that natural light is amazing! Thanks for inviting us to visit. Have a happy, crafty, feeling better week. :) Nann#49

Woo hoo - a desk I feel at home at! I love it when inspiration strikes in the middle of doing something else - there's no better way to gain it, and the best way to deal with it is just as you've done - give in and use it! Happy days! Hope you're feeling much better by now.

Hullo Chris, made it over, love the cards made and great when you find stamp like that to reset your inspiration. Watching my apostrophes now :) thought afterwards my pet dislike is when an adjective is used instead of an adverb.
Happy WOYWW pray you keep well. Say hi to Margaret when next chatting. Give her my love and say am praying. Shaz in Oz.x on mobile

Looks like you have everything under control, lol! I have so much stuff in my studio it always looks, ummm, well, OK I will say it out loud, "cluttered"! Honest though, I need every single piece of stash I have, honest!
Hope you are feeling better ...
