It’s WOYWW time again

Wowzer, it’s not only Wednesday again, it’s MAY! Where in earth is this year going? And could somebody please inform the weather gods that it is in fact May, ergo Spring, so enough with the torrential rain and chilly wind please.

Anyway, complaints aside, let me start with an apology. My desk is a mess again!


I did tidy it last Wednesday (well, as tidy as it ever gets) but in between then and now, I’ve managed to trash it again. I managed, in my wisdom, to offer to create the entire wedding stationary (for free!) for my little sisters wedding. Now, she has no idea what she likes, so my desk is destroyed from creating samples.

Still, I do have brand new stash items.


And I’m hoping the postie will deliver my brand new Tim Holtz Spring Distress Ink Pads today.

Hopefully I’ll be able to post a few of the samples over the next few days, but until then, here’s a sneak peek of something else I’m working on (blog tomorrow)


And finally (Sorry Julia, this post is way too long! ) it was my beautiful Daughters first birthday on Sunday, and i know you all like the baby pictures so here’s the birthday girl herself.


Now head on over to the lovely Julia’s place to see desks that are probably infinitely tidier than mine!
