WOYWW, and a Pig!

Hi Campers! It's WOYW Wednesday, wake up and smell the photo glue! (no, not really!) stroke the glittery backing papers, battle your way out of your Sticky Dots and come over to the Stamping Ground and join in!
First, (stage left and up a bit) I must show you my Pig! I painted him on Monday, a birthday treat from my daughter and Son-in-law... can't wait to see what colours he's going to turn out to be.
And now for my Crafty desk.... ermm...well..it's not too bad.
There has been loads of creations going on, mostly my Birthday Freebies digi's, which as you can see I've just scattered on top of the bench. They do have a home, I still keep the first sketches even though they don't look anything like the ones that appear on the blog.
There's also a couple of freebies from craft magazines (stamps and a scoring board) and something that actually arrived from America on my birthday ... (got all excited coz I thought it was from youngest daughter) it turned out to be a cute little stamp from Fun and Whimsical Rubber Stamps... after one of my cards won a challenge! So that was nice! Oh and new Promarkers, from Sis-in-law!!! (I love Promarkers... half price at Hobby Craft!) I also got loads of chocolate...bowes, bags, Mini eggs! I'm going to get soooo fat! (get???) plus a nice top from my mum and dad, some birthday money, and the last Harry Potter DVD...about time too!
So!! take a picture and show us what you've been up to. Show us your Wednesday Crafty Mess!
I've put one of those 'Say No' badges at the bottom here coz quite honestly two fussy words to guess is just too much for my small brain and my, not very good, reading glasses!
Some of you even have the moderator thing on as well! You don't need both! Honest! Blogger is excellent at sending all my spam into the spam box where I have great delight in deleting it all in one go!!
Right, that's me done... I'm off to bed... maybe I'll get there before half past two this week! (in your dreams!) Night night! Thanks for stopping by!

Yes, go turn it off!

    1. I'm really looking forward to seeing what his 'real' colours are, hope they aren't tooo bad once he's been glazed and fired!

  3. Absolutely LOVE what you've done with that piggie! Isn't he sweet! :D

    A busy workdesk you have this week! Mine is still in a state of ... erm.. limbo? Not done much crafting over this past month, but now that this course is finished i can catch up! I am supposed to be doing an altered book challenge and I have got as far as choosing my book! That's it!! So I'm looking forward to catching up on that!

    Thanks for the heads up about the comment verification, it's now turned off! Much easier to comment and a lot quicker too lol.

    Take care and Happy WOYWW :)

    1. oh Jackie you are an angel! My spelling is bad enough in comments, and not just spelling, I actually use wrong words! I try hard in my posts to get it right but comments fall by the wayside!! I often put chicken instead of children, and other words too bad to mention!! I just hope people realise it's not my fault! Word variation (spelt wrong probably!_) just stops me dead!

  6. Looks like you’ve been busy Lyn and some nice new things to pa=lay with too.
    I need to check out the half price Promarkers but the last time I was in our local Hobbycraft they were only selling sets and I just need a few odd colours to make up my set.

    Loving the piggy, by the way.

    Happy Crafting!

  25. My desk may have started out tidy but it soon came to resemble yours ... ok, maybe not quite but it got pretty messy!
    Thanks for dropping by my blog today ... it was lovely having you visit but I'm afraid those walls will be stopping blank! When it is warm enough I work in our conservatory and today was one of those days (with a little help from the fan heater!!!) so all my craft stuff gets stored away again ... usually just before someone calls and I need it to be tidy! I just have a huge clock on that wall and I love the simplicity of it. Happy WOYWWing! Love Debbie #59 xXx

  35. Whoa--glue sniffing? That's one way to get the day on a roll... Sounds like you have a fabulous birthday and got quite the haul, nothing like some crafty bits and few other odds and ends to make your special day even more special. I'm with you on those crazy word verification...sometimes I suspect it is oriental writing.

  39. Hi Lyn, Your blog always makes me smile. I've got another award for you over at my place :) It's called The Versatile Blogger award, very apt! Oh, by the way, I've disabled that annoying word verification thingy - yay!

    Hope you had a lovely birthday and lurrve the piggy (I adopt a pig here in Norfolk - he's called Billy Griffin).

    I think I'm going to have to start doing the WOYWW thing, no matter how hard I try to keep my desk tidy - hah! Never happens.

  44. Half price Promarkers - that sounds good, but I must resist the temptation. You certainly look to be having fun with your piggie. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. It is hard to get back to drawing when you have let it slide for so many years. That is something I want to get back to this year. Have a good week. xx Maggie #17

  47. I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to cooperate with me. So, did I miss your birthday by being so slow getting here? I hope not. Happy birthday, anyway. You are very busy, so I'll let you get back to "work." Have a great rest of the week.
