WOYWW #176

Sorry Folks I didn't make it over last week, family things to deal with and visiting my grandaughter in hospital, after a real scare last week she is now beginning to make some progress, so we are praying this continues, bless her.


For me my desk is scattered with bits and pieces, I am well and truly into Christmas and tags as you can probably see. The photos were taken last night under spotlights, hence the shadows and strange lighting.

Why do I always seem to work in such a small space and have so many bits and pieces around me? Answers on a postcard please lol.


This is my next tag under construction, so far weathered wood and vintage photo and some embossing resist. A selection of embellishments collected together to use too. Hopefully this should be posted tonight or tomorrow morning.

OK so what is your desk like today? Pop on over to The Stamping Ground and Julia's lovely blog and be transported all around the world taking a peek at creative spaces in so many countries. I will be around later today to link this and start my travels. Like many of you I visit all those ending with the same number as me and more, particularly people I already know and those who leave me a comment. Thanks for taking the time if you do.

Have a great day and enjoy your crafty ventures.

Hope your Granddaughter continues to improve, must have been a worrying time for you all. I think the answer is that we cannot work properly UNLESS we are working in a 30 cm square! It seems a common thread amongst crafters..... Happy WOYWW, Anne x #41

Sue said...

Dear Brenda, I have no answer to your problem as I have the same problem on a larger scale.(This is because I was born with a small tidy gene.) So glad that your granddaughter is doing well.

As long as you have enough space to fling an ink pad around all is well. Don't think us crafters like big open spaces anyway! We always try to fill them. Glad to here your Granddaughter is improving. Happy WOYWW, hugs Buttons #119

Hi Brenda,

Oh, I love your tag!!! My table that I work on is round so I really have to watch how I move things around - otherwise it goes right over the edge! I usually manage a space about two feet square to craft on. We all seem to make the most use of our space!

Happy WOYWW

Love the music theme on your C'mas tag. I'm thinking about some music too but I want a particular song so am hand writing the notation. Hmmm. Not sure whether it will work.
Hope the young'un is okay soon, and thanks for calling by my blog. Enjoy your week - lovely day here. I'm meeting friends at a little wine bar over-looking the sea later this arvo while the chook roasts in the Weber kettle. :-)
Cheers,
Ros. #38
