Wednesday's Worktop Watch

Morning WOYWWers! I'm just sooo behind with everything I'm supposed to be doing I'll type very fast. Pleese xscoose the smelling mistakes!
The 'map' I was trying to get done last week is now finished and framed, and not a minute before it was due. It's wanted for an auction. I was asked to add to the cartoon map... Geysir, Volcano, Plane, a troll and their school Symbol, which I can't find anywhere... all a bit vague this is what I came up with. Any more ideas would be welcome! (I have a few hours left!...a minute...two seconds....) All the little pictures on there were full size A4 reduced down to very teeny-tiny squares. I didn't want to draw straight onto the map, in case I made a mistake! (I did try, it was a disaster!!) The island by the way is suppose to be Iceland, but I've never know an island to keep changing shape! Not one map I found was the same so, I sort of drew my own version of it... hope I haven't missed chunks out! I'll blame it on Global warming!!
My PiF hasn't come yet :o( so I can't show you it, maybe next week! Can't wait!
The other side of my craft room is filled with the makings of the map... so I've done you a 'one day Freebie Map' this week and a little crossed-eye dog for the week...'s two in the morning and I couldn't think of anything to draw!
Now that most of my 'have to do jobs' are nearly done, I hope to get round more of you this week, I think I missed most of the middle row... it kept growing longer and longer!!
If you're new to all this blogging about, but love to have a snoop around tons of crafty spaces, why not join in, just pop over to The Stamping Ground! Bye for now. This is on timer as I'm....not here...
oh no....I've just spotted a mistake.....I've signed it 2010, dam, bother, hoggleswobble!!

  21. Love your space when you have been creating ....and the map is magic. I had to smile at the thought of every map being different ...must be confusing for those who live there lol

  22. Wow. The map is fantastic.


  23. That map is fabbey - I cannot even draw a map of the UK as it ends up looking like somewhere else!!! That Troll is cool too!!
    I tried to visit you and Jude last night but my computer wasn't having it so I am now having to go around today too as I hadn't finished!! Sorry I am late!!

  24. That map looks brilliant:) Thanks for stopping by yesterday xx

  25. That map looks brilliant. I suppose the reason for the island changing shape is down to its volcanic conditions. Thanks so much for your digi this week - he is very cute.

  26. i'm lucky if i can cut up a map never mind be creative with one.
    thanks for dropping by earlier

  27. Love the map...I can relate to creating late at night and then trying to post...the two don't mix!! Thanks for the freebies! :) Nan

  28. Just awesome Lyn re the error on the year -just tell them in your part of the UK you are a whole 12 months behind the rest of the world and you haven't made 2011 or maybe you did it last year. Or maybe you have one you beaut eraser that will change the "0" for a "1" and lastly maybe no-one else will even notice I think this is the most likely you know!
    Either way it is really a great piece of work! happy WOYWW and thanks for popping over, Shaz in oz.x

  29. WOW. That is very cool. My drawing skills are so limited so I am totally in awe of this. Fab.

  30. I'm not sure which is funnier - your post or Doone's comment! ROFL. I think your map looks fab, and if anyone says Iceland doesn't look like that, just tell them it did the day you drew it.... LOL.... Thanks for stopping by!

  31. Hoggleswobble, how did I come to miss the map:( Could it be because I'm dawdling through the links this week. Ah well, them's the breaks. Love the look of your map though - very nice. Have a great week. Elizabeth x #74

  32. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Never to something you have loads of time to something about... just when the clock hands are going super fast!! Love the map, you are so darn clever!!

  33. Such a cool map, bet they are loving it and its gonna make some serious money at auction.
    Happy very belated WOYWW

  34. The map is great, I always admire people who are able to draw...I couldn't if my life depended on it :)

  35. That map looks fab! Hope the auction went well.


Thank you so much for your comments! They make my day!!
