Happy 1st of September!! Pinch and a kick, for being so quick! And what was I doing on this day last year????...let's have a look HERE Aw sooo cute, but enough of that!! Yes, this week it's WHAT'S ON SOMEONE ELSE'S WORKDESK WEDNESDAY!! (Sorry, didn't mean to shout!) This will be a very quickie post if you read it fast!!
I'm still dog sitting and nearly had to abandon WOYWW!! (No!!) But!! I thought, quick, take a pic of what's on this desk here. Not much space to craft in, but I have brought a couple of things with me (laptop!) and there's the start of the freebie, hiding beneath that, (hem-hem) magazine!! Poor hubby, I sent him back home to get my scanner so I could do the freebie! And, oho lookie, I wonder who that is on page 33 of Cardmaking and PaperCraft Magazine!? Anyone we know?? I must admit, to open a mag and see some of your cards on the page is a tiny weeny bit of a thrill! So, there you go, three minutes of fame!
Also on the desk, is, of course, can't leave home without them... my ProMakers! And a few moments later, after a sudden chocolate craving, a large jar of Nutella appears, complete with spoon.
Now, I know some of you are saying, where's the flippin' freebie then?? It'll be here soon, I promise. This is on timer, which I hope I have time to link in the morning, as I'll be at work, after walking the dogs but before I go I hope to add the freebie, if not look out for the post above this one! I've done the drawing, but it still needs to be tidied up a bit and seeing hubby has to go to bed now, (it's nearly midnight) as he gets up about 5, there's no way I can stay up typing in the same room til three in the morning...his snoring will put me off! (only kidding...It's Frog the cat, she moans about the light still being on!)
So, what's all this about, as if you didn't know!? Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and find out! Take a pic of your crafty space, no matter where it is or what it looks like (the messier the better I think) and come and join in. It's the best way to meet so many crafty people! Thanks for stopping by!

Still plenty of time to join in with Spyder's 'Mouse House' Challenge. Details on how to get the freebie image HERE


  1. I had to stop by before the links were up, so I could get a head start on the day. It just goes to show you can craft in even the tiniest spot if you have to.
