It's WOYWW Time again already!

Another very short post from me this week, as again I'm not here. (am I ever?) Today's the day daughter and baby grandson, Mason go back to Money Creek, USA. (aw, too sad for words)
So!!! On my desk for this weeks What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, kindly hosted every week by the one and only Julia, is once again, very much what was on there last week - I've just shuffled it about a bit to make it look as though I've been busy, which, of course, I have ...I've just not made any cards! One ATC from a set of 5 or 6 still not finished and the same ol' easel card waiting very patiently to be put together (One day Thomas pigs will fly and we'll all carry umbrellas!) I'm beginning to like the over head shots, that way, you can't see the rest of the mess!!
So, if you feel the sudden urge to join in, take a picture of wherever you craft, no matter how small, untidy, or fabulously designer designed craft room it may be, (we promise not to throw tomatoes at you, if it's too posh!) and pop over to the Stamping Ground and join in, but be warned, it's very addictive!
New Followers! hi and a big ((wave)) Caroline Johnstone, and out the back and in the dark, there's Alamom, and Wilsonp58, all with no links.

** the larger Spiderweb paper on my desk is part of a fabulous scrap-booking set by Summer Driggs, you can download it for free HERE
Sorry You Missed this weeks freebie, there will be a new one on the latest Wednesday's post.
Inspired by
Mason Rain's bib! (Monkey see. Monkey do!)

    Monkey so so sweet

  2. I linked your desk onto Julia's for you hun


  3. Oh wow what a lovely place.
    Wonderful things on your desk.

  4. Love that house on your desk! Hope they have a safe trip back home.

  5. Would not have expected you to make things - time was too precious for you with your grandson. Hope the "leaving" is not too sad for you.

  6. Interesting stuff on your desk as ever. They may be going back, but what fab memories you'll have to treasure!

  7. Hi Lyn, love your messy area, it is however sooo tidy in comparison to mine after two weeks of four children at home on their tattie holidays all wanting to do 'something crafty mum' and I sooo know what you mean, with the family so far away, mine may only be 600 miles away in Emsworth, but it's still too far away for a weekend visit with four youngsters. Hope to see them at easter tho, so something to look forward to. At least you'll have some great photos to scrapbook! hugs heidi

  8. You may not have been busy crafting this last week but think of all the memories you have mad - far out weighs

    Enjoy your day and thanks for sharing


  9. enjoy your day. Sorry they are leaving.

  30. I can't imagine having my granddaughter so far away! I think 1.5 hours is too far.

    Thank you for the digi.

  31. What a wonderful playground. So many fun projects in the works or recently done. Thanks for the Looky See.

  32. i have a large and varied selection of old and new Denby Pottery ( the pottery ( at Denby surprisingly) ) is only a twenty minute drive from me and on my way to one of my workplaces - so I often pick up any cut price on offer oddments - the green jug is a gravy boat

    when I want water for painting I just fill the first jug I grab fron the kitchen

    if ever you come for sunday dinner pass on the gravy....

  33. Sorry to hear that your daughter and her baby are going home - you'll miss them. Hope you've got Skype to keep in touch. Enjoyed the nosey round your desk so thanks for sharing. Elizabeth #51

    Hugs Lisa (90)

  35. I'm very jealous of all that fabulous Hallowe'en stuff on your desk. Glorious and gorgeous.

  36. so sorry that your daughter and baby Mason have gone home. It's the hardest thing, I know, but mine are only in Germany and in Brighton 250 miles away. The grandees grow too quickly!
    Crafting keeps your mind busy and it looks like you are doing OK there. Lovely mess, thanks for sharing...
    Hugs JoZarty x

  37. Your workdesk is wonderfully messy and creative!
    Sorry that your daughter and grandbaby have to live far away. But you know you are in their hearts!

  38. Hi Lyn, so sorry that your daughter and grandson have had to go. Have you got skype then you can get to see them on your computer and speak. LOve your haunted house, look like you will be doing a lot of card making soon. Big Hugs*88

  39. Hope your Daughter and grandson had a safe journey home and you've wiped all those tears away :(
    Fab freebie as always, happy creating....A.xx(80)

  40. think of it this way - they have to go back so they can come back and visit you again :-)


  41. It's always sad to say good-bye, but I hope they made it home safely by now. My question is, do you have ANY room on that desk to make anything? Or will you have to shuffle things a bit? Just joking. I'm sure you'll find room somewhere.

    I'm still moving slowly from my back pain, but trying to start visiting people although it's so late. Happy very belated WOYWW (# 15).

  42. I always enjoy having a peek at your desk. Goodbyes are always sad, but they make the next meeting more joyful. Thanks for sharing.
