WOYWW 218 the count down begins

Hi peeps
Really? Is it Wednesday again already . 
Time to take a peek at the crafty worlds work desks under the leadership of head hopper Julia at
First of all a big apology to everyone I didn't visit last week, I am still waiting for my laptop to be returned. It is very slow going on my phone. I will do better .... Promise.
Anyway My desk ;

This week DD3 announced her wedding date... Next May so not long and lots to do, panic ... Nah, this is my third after all. 
I am just making some sample save the date cards, an easy brief : simple and pink, I think I can manage that . 
Also on my desk this week is some very happy mail, I won some blog candy from my lovely WOYWW mate Jo from Jozart blog.  I love it, especially the travel journal, but there are lots of interesting  crafty bits and bobs.... 

I think I am going to have fun with this lot.

I finished a couple more cards too this week. Can only show one of them.
I don't normally do girly but I made an exception for my lovely friend Jane who has a ' special' birthday this year. I used parts of my lace book as inspiration

Finally thanks for sticking with me here's another desk I have been working on this week ( secret) .....

It's my handyman's he helped me with a little project I was working on.....but I think he was a little worried I was going to make a move on his sanctuary hehe
That's all  folks, I will try and visit do make it easier for me and please leave your number


  1. So lovely to have a wedding to look forward to and good you have good notice too. Nice little cards for the starter but I bet you'll have so much more to do before long.
    Pleased to hear you're happy with your prize box... it looks so much more in the photo!
    The card for your friend Jane may be girly but it's also exquisite!
    Love Jo x

  2. Weddings…FUN..FUN…FUN!!! How awesome is your goody bag. I'm all about the bits n' bobs. I love the card you made. Since joining WOYWW, I have seen some of the most amazing cards made by all you talented folks. I will tell you what I have told a few others, I will be dropping you hints when my birthday rolls around. I will not even pretend to have any shame or manners, I'd be in my very own happy place getting all the beautiful cards you all share from week to week. Have a great weekend. Happy Hump Day. (((HUGS)))

  7. Ha! handymen are like that. I spent all of yesterday moving a stack of planks and timbers into a new storage place. Damn nearly killed me. And he kept coming to check I was doing it right...yep..moving planks!! Oh well, I guess I'm like that over my stuff. I think.A bit.
    Lovely news of the wedding, and a nice brief too - you say you don't do girly, but you do it beautifully.

  8. Will be lovely to hear how the wedding plans go over the coming months. Great card and looking forward to the wood project pic.
