WOYWW168 feeling smug

Hi world and WOYWWers
You know how sometimes you just dont seem to get any crafting done? . . . like  last week.
Then another week you this week.

 Feeling very smug! but I wont let it go to my head (agh still have to buy a hat !!!)
Mostly thanks to an extra day off work and not having GD Erin on Tuesday.
 I have done ..... a lot of wedding stuff.
Orders of Service . .  done
Table decorations . .  done
Tiara . . . .done, ok that was mostly last week
Menu stands . . . . done, so, I still have to print the menus
Mock up of the cravats . . . done, ok only the mock up and not the actual cravats, but I'm not making those.
Well I don't intend to, D2 is supposed to be... we'll see.
Amazing what you can get done when you are left to get on with it, hee hee!

table decorations..... the wedding geckos!

This is a different view of my desk this week, otherwise it always looks the same. So much mess! I have also been making a Wedding album for D1 first anniversary.

The spine on the  11" x 8 1/2" album broke.  I ended up buying a new 12"x 12" scrapbook album and starting again, what a pain that was.
Here is the naughty album.. shame it was pretty..... also, you can still see the purple sequins I haven't done that page yet.

 I had done 16 pages, (last weekend mostly).
I used the same layouts and just expanded them. Still a lot of work to do . . .. another 8 pages

With all this smugness I should have plenty of time to hop around the best blog hop in town and see what Julia stamping-ground.   has been upto this week. Haven't seen WOYWW yet? . .  where have you been?
As usual I will visit as many as possible, if you leave your Mr Linky no I will get back to you in the evening after work.
Another job done! see you later

  8. Crikey, you have been busy. Those geckos are super cute and certainly different. Shame about the wedding album but the pages for the new size look terrific. Hope this week goes as well for you. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

  9. Love the tiara - it looks amazing...and I'm very impressed with the wirework. You definitely have to bring something like that to the WOYWW crop and show me the technique! It was lovely to see you earlier on in the shop today...great to chat again. That Julia leads me astray..she made me buy that ribbon *grin*
    Hugs, LLJ #71 xx

  12. Oooh, i LOVE those wedding geckos!

  13. I've never heard of wedding geckos before, is this an Aussie thing or just the wedding theme? Either way, they sure are cute! You said that my paint brush was the second one you had seen today, by any chance can you remember who had the other one? I would love to check out what they had done :) waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  14. My goodness, you have a lot going on!
    Love the wedding geckos :)

  18. Hello Queen of Smugness! Don't let it go to your head or it may bite you on the bum!
    Loving those gekos. Punch or die? Shared bedrooms with gekos in Vietnam and loved them. Such beautiful colours.
    As for my desk I have not named her yet. Need to live with her for a bit to figure it out. It will be a nice one anyway!
    Hugz xx

  19. I like the long shot of your desk, so much goodness there! Bummer about that album that bit the dust but good that you can resurrect it into a newer larger album. And wow.... all that stuff you got done! I'm impressed.

  20. Well, as I said on Wednesday's taken me till this long to get here, so I don't expect for a minute that you've found much time to visit blogs with al this wedding and anniversary stuff going on! It all looks lovely, and I'm really excited for the big day...once you've got your hat!

  21. Like the new view of your Play Pen... what a Great craft get-away!!!
    You sure have a lot going on right now and still getting that Album redone too... Wow your good!!
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment too!

  22. Hi, just popping back after reading your comment on my WOYWW post. You asked is I was die-cutting for a purpose and I have say, not really, unless you count wanting to use up all, or as much as I can, of all the leftover bits of card and paper I have taking up far to much room in a drawer I would like to free up for storing something else ... after all that I realise I am die-cutting for a purpose, just not for a particular project :)) Elizabeth x #105

  23. LOVE that tiara and those wedding geckos! I think you've the right to feel like the crafting list is on schedule (knock wood lol). Thanks for visiting, everytime I see those bowls and such made out of records I can't help thinking I wonder if this is an album I would have played? lol. Happy belated WOYWW! #37


I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
