What a Mess, it's Wednesday!!

Big apologies for not getting round to see everyone last week. There were hundreds of us!!! It's really hard when you're not at home and some dog is chewing your hand off! Happy to say, I am now home from Dog sitting. No longer will anyone have to worry that I'm contaminating someone else's work desk!! Who remembers those What-a-Mess stories, all about an Afghan hound puppy? well, I think he lives on, it looks like he does, and he's doing it in my craft room!! Oh What -a-mess!! I had a quick tidy, but run out of time. Today's freebie, was going to be either a mummy..no, not that kind of mummy, the other kind with bandages and a grrrrrr look about him, but he seems to have wandered off. Can I find him? No. Or a vampire, but he's missing too. So today's freebie is a bit of a rushed job. My pen's nearly out of ink, and I think it's a bit...what's the word?? (It'll come to me in a minute) ...a bit...rough round the edges. If it ever gets to the store I promise, I'll re-vamp it first! But there has been a few of you who asked for a background...well...it's nearly Christmas...and they're selling mince pies in Tesco's, oh and it is Agatha Christie's birthday!
Sorry about dark pictures, it's two in the morning as I type this, so there's no sun, and my daylight bulb, seems to be missing as well. Very untidy desk, moments before it was sky high with crafty 'stuff' and I quickly scooped it all up and put it tidily away (in a big box on the floor) This is on timer, I'm at work, and you must now hop over to Julia's blog and join in. What with?? What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday of course!!


Sorry You missed this freebie
New one will be on

  9. Wow Lyn 2 in the morning isn't there a song. Well I think your desk is very creative and you have lots of things on it. I have the Quickutz, don't use it so much now - shame its good for getting all the little dies and less waste on paper if you do it accurate. Notice also that you have some tins are they pink petticoat or ones that have card blanks. Nosey I am. Have a lovely day Big HUgs JO. xx ps saw your blog in a mag how lovely.

  22. Glad to see you are back home and dealing with your own mess this week (grin). I like that image. How sweet of you.

    My grandmother (British to the core) made mince pies each holiday. Thanks for letting me know it was Agatha's b'day. Loved all her books and the way Masterpiece Mystery always spotlights her works. Happy WOYWW.

  29. I am one of these people who doesn't sleep very well, I used to get up and do the ironing (mainly because the vacuum cleaner would wake everyone) now I get up and craft, so I do understand why you were taking pics at 2 am

  30. Don't know how you do it - I am well away by 2am but can often be wide awake and ready to go by 4 am.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hi Lyn - love looking round your desk! Thanks for the freebie - I love it xx

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lyn, Thank you so much for the freebie image. As far as your desk - it looks like mine when I am feeling the most creative. I usually can't find what I want anyway. It could even be in my hand or buried under a pile.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oooh I love a messy desk me! thats a beast of a pink handled thing you have there on your desk - not seen one of those before - do I need one??? Is that you on the photo too? Sorry I havent done anything with the mushroom image yet - been caught up making items for some workshops. I got the tablecloth from John Lewis - would have like the spotty one but the children liked the atlas one, I have to say it makes for some interesting conversation during dinner time!

  48. Fab desk, but errrrr what are those things at the top right corner of your cutting mat - one looks kinda like a brown spongy ball, and for the other all I can think of is a badly filleted piece of haddock! Love the tidy method btw, scoop up and dump in a box on the floor works for me too :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wow, what a popular lady you are! I'm not surprised though. Your story-telling is hilarious and your freebies, etc., are fabulous. Thanks for the laughs and beautiful images.

    (Between the British lingo in your blog/comments and the acronyms of the crafters' blogging world I almost feel like I'm reading a foreign language sometimes! I like it though; it's a fun culture lesson. It's also neat to see how similar people are no matter where in the world they live! Thanks.)

  50. I love your space. Its so busy. Does anyone even feel like eating a mince pie....we are still in a sort of summer arent we? Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to "meet" you. Suzanne (no. 27)

  51. 2 in the morning and going to work before I post WOYWW? How do you do it Lyn, really? Love the idea of tidying up into a big box! Who's in the black and white photo - and what you going to do with it?

    ReplyDelete
  52. I reckon your desk reflects whats been going on in your life these past few weeks! It must be heaven to be back at your own desk so just you enjoy it - we are! Its great as theres so much to see!

    Thanks for the great scene digi, its so kind of you to share it with us all!
