WOYWW 286 and in the green corner.......

Hi Deskers
Well that was a quick week.....blink and its gone. please check in with Julia .. stamping-ground.. the hosted with the mostest and the lady who started this desk showing show.
anyway  my desk ..... there isn't much on it this week.... no really.... let's see shall we. ..... Warning .... photo heavy post..... but not a lot of chat :-)

Oh ok maybe not so empty..... what do we have....?
Peel offs (shock horror) these are from my crafty beginnings..... but I'm going to use them on some crockery painting ( cannot show yet)
At the back.... (and the front WIP)..... DLP as usual ....
The yellow blob is a set of Easter chicks.... I'm so current me! LOL
New glasses and the still undecorated case..
A new box of alphabet stamps.... sadly not the font on the front
Minions.... regular visitors will know I am a big fan.... these are labels from some JP's from Primark.... too good to throw away ... what shall I make with them?
Finally below is  the fairy grotto at the beginning of the  weekend,

It has been getting steadily worse for a while now.. I didn't want too..... but it had to be sorted 

After much huffing and puffing this was the state of play on Sunday night... Ready for action.

This is what I am actually working on today.... I had a request  from 3 year old GD Erin for a sparkly 'Frozen' scarf which she wanted to help me knit...... well you can imagine how that went on Tuesday morning can't you !!!!! (Erin even took the photo).

Please leave your Mr Linky number so I can find you.... I'm often on my phone during the day and its quite time consuming to look through several blogs for the right post.... ta
see you later

  3. A lovely tidy space to work in. Although I didn't think it looked that bad when it was 'messy'! I never browse blogs on my phone. Give me the big screen experience every time.

  4. Cute minions! well done with sorting your room - want to come and do mine? Hope Erin loves her scarf when it's finished. Helen 6

  5. Well done on getting the room straight - a real bind, but one that pays off in the end. At the mo, I can't find anything in mine. The pink owls are pretty, and my DD loves minions, too. I'm hoping to knit her one for Chrimbo (along with all the other pressie projects haha!) Great you're helping Erin to knit - good luck!! Happy WOYWW, Chris # 8

  6. We both sound to be juggling life as always 😃 well done you with the tidying up. Love the scarf...well done to you .

  8. I love the before and after photos - it's a job well done and you can relax now! I bet you've had great fun knitting with your GD, my grandmother taught me to knit - it's what grandma's did in my day, but not so often now, so have a gold star for passing these skills onto the next generation! I bet she can't wait for the scarf to be finished! Hope you have a great week,

  9. Wow, what a nice looking room after some huffing and puffing! I made my hubby tidy his side of the was taking over my side! I took it all outside onto the patio and made him go through it all before he brought it back in! #3

  10. Well done on tidying your room! I can live in a mess up to a certain point, but when I have reached that ultimate tolerance level, something needs to be done.
    I love your ergonomic chair, nice and padded. We saw them when we were visiting in the UK but no padding and unfortunately they don't fit in my suit case lol.
    Thanks for sharing,
    Have a great week,

  11. It's always good to have a great sort out and tidy up! TFS

  12. Hey, you did a great job on the tidy up - I'm almost at that point myself..there's only so much 'lack of time' I can use as an excuse and in the end, it just gets on your nerves, huh! You and Minions - it's you I think of when I see them now...I suspect that you'll be flooded with Minion stuff for presents if you don't stop talking about them! Aw, it's cute that |Erin wants to help you...but yeah, I can imagine - the wool is a lovely colour. Am so out of date, haven't seen frozen and only yesterday discovered that the funny shaped snowman is a character from the film!

  13. Very tidy looking room you have now. It's sweet that you had some help with the Frozen scarf. Thankfully my youngest is past the Frozen stage. I love the minions too, they are so cute. Wish I had some to help around the house. Have a great week,

  14. I love your crafty space and have to ask you where did you get that chair from? I remember them from, shall we just say an earlier time... please tell me they are back again and I will be able to find one?! Your desk looks well loved and used, not a mess in sight! I do need new glasses though so ... giggle! Good luck on the scarf... pretty darn good photo for a 3 year-old!
    Hugs and see you next week, maybe even earlier than this! LOL!

  15. Didn't know about a Frozen scarf. Must look it up.
    Has everyone gone cleaning mad at the moment - is it because we are behind with "C" cards or because the majority have finished them? Guess where I am?
    Hugs, Neet xx

  16. Easter chicks! That made me laugh ☺
    Thanks for visiting my desk already
