WOYW Wednesday- And All The Week. Plus Some Freebie Stripes

Happy 1st of August!! All ready? Where did the year go??? Happy WOYWW I'm waving to you from somewhere else this week as we are on our way to Scotland to scatter Alistair where he loved fishing as a boy (and probably still does)
This is what was/is on my worktop Tuesday /Wednesday, and the rest of the week, until we come home. It's the making of the card I made yesterday... everything that could go wrong, did! I have no idea how that bottle of PVA glue got there, I never use that on cards, well, they go 'bendy' don't they...
No new freebie 'here' this week, sorry. But I'll email you last weeks when I get back if you still want it! Hunt the hidden freebies are still there, if you find them you can download them straight away. I have added some freebie stripy papers though, I made them for yesterdays card, they might come in handy, but better still, why not make your own! Easy! I'll call round if I can, as we do have John's little laptop and his dongle. Although, remember? We played with his dongle in a field last time, I whisper this, came home to find I had no blog and no email! It was believed spies in the skies had invaded me! Of course they hadn't...this time I'm more likely to be molested by a sheep! Anyway!! Do you have some lovely craftymess on your Worktop you'd like to share? Why not stamp on over to The Stamping Ground and join in! You'll meet some very interesting crafters over there!


  1. August already! Shocking! In our business we are already preparing for Christmas! I can't believe how FASSST the months are zipping by! I think it has something to do with age! My son thinks time is so slowww. Well, hope the spies in the skies don't find their way to me! Patsy from

  2. *giggles* Hope you don't get molested by a sheep because that would just be wrong!
    Happy WOYWW!

  3. Busy desk, Lyn, and we all have projects where everything goes wrong... Really tedious isn't it!

    Thanks for your lovely comment. Glad you enjoyed my recycled projects. I have recently discovered Jennibellie online (google her!) - she takes recycling to new heights and her art is amazing!

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #7

  6. Hi Lyn,

    Love the color of the stripes.

    Happy WOYWW,
    Hugs, Kay #31

  7. Lovely crafty desk Lyn, love those cute little images.
    There's always going to be times when things go wrong but just smile.
    Elaine #22

  8. Just one stray bottle of PVA glue ... my desk is often the drop off point for numerous items that no one knows anything about.
    Sandra @36

  9. Loadsa lovely things on your desk - and I see you have those Ikea pots like I have - great aren't they?
    Hope Scotland is not as wet as here in the NW of England or you will be up to your knees in mud in those fields with the sheepsies.
    Thanks for sharing - Hugs, neet xx #27

  10. I can't believe it's August either. Hope your trip to Scotland is good, it will be emotional for sure! Hugs, Helen, 24

  11. Very busy looking desk again Lyn, love those little sheep, they are just sooo cute. Do be careful with that dongle! Happy WOYWW, Anne x #58

  12. Oh is there spies that take your blog. Gosh I will keep a look out for them. Hehehe Maybe the sheep ate it. Hope it all goes well with your trip. Condolences for Alistair, looked like a happy bloke. Sandy :) #43

  13. Happy WOYWW Lyn

    Watch out for wild haggis, they run free at this time of the year!

    Great, busy desk as ever, how do you know where everything is lol?

    TFS, safe journey xx

  14. Nice busy desk :) and thanks for the papers Lyn.

  15. Verycute little sheep image! happy woyww jenx 71

  16. Hope your day goes well. Will be thinking of you.
    A x #64

  17. Oh my I do hope the sheep will be alright, that is a wee bit of a worry. LOL

    I know it isn't a fun trip but please try and have a good time.

    Eliza #16 again.

  18. You be careful that the dongle doesn't get kidnapped by marauding wild haggis - they're devils, you know!! How lovely taking Alistair back to where he loved - I did that with my mum a few weeks back, sad..but a good thing to do.
    Hugs, LLJ #1 xx

  19. I have asked Niall to cremate Me ( after I am dead) and Bring my Ashes back from France and scatter them at Black Rocks ( overlooks cromford matlock bath and matlock)

    I suspect he will say yes and perhaps one day get round to it...

    my spirit will always be there, ( I've told my boys they can always talk to me there and I will hear - they think I am mad but I know one day they might need it...)

    hope you have a lovely reflective time that brings you peace.

  20. Wishing you well on your trip to Scotland. Hoping the sunshine will lighten your day.
    Lots of coloring to do when you return, and August..well time just flies by schools will be starting shortly here and then FALL. Everything will be early here with all the dryness. Safe travels

  21. I love those cow images! so cute! where are they from? Hope your trip up to Scotland is comforting to you and your loved ones. Thinking of you. x April #89

  22. Lots of creative craftyness going on here - looks like lots of colouring to keep you busy when you get back,
    Bernice #2

  24. Happy Yorkshire Day! Hope all goes well. x Jo

  25. Nice busy desk Lyn! Hopefully your trip will have fun times as well as the sad ones... xxx Trish #10

  26. Not only a bottle of PVA but a HUGE bottle of PVA! Hope everything goes well in Scotland and keep away from those sheep! The tower of inks are a Martha Stewart set.

  27. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies (please, notice the new url for my blog), under the Page 5 post on Aug. 01, 2012. Thanks again.

  28. Playing with someone's dongle in a field? Didn't know it was that kind of blog.

    I'm off for a lie down I have a touch of the vapours

    Jakix #112

  29. That is a lot of stamped images to color :)
    Hope you have a fun, relaxing vacation!

  30. Lots of coloring projects on your desk. Hope all goes well in Scotland.

  31. Such a cute image of the sheep... I hope all goes well today.. Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#12

  32. It's as amazing how things find their way to my desk almost as much as how things walk away from their designated spots too! But then that prompts a cleaning, so not all bad...and if it finds it's way to my desk, then legally it's mine right? waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  33. Cute sheep you have there. A busy, busy desk as always. Hope you have a safe trip. Anne x

  34. Hope things go fine Lyn - still worrying about that dongle though.

    Happy WOYWW, Di x #11

  35. I don't know if I'd trust the sheep with my computer and internet connection. One never knows what sheep are up to. They'll be downloading Shaun the Sheep episodes or worse. I'm not a fan of PVA myself, but I'm more curious about the hammer on the desk. That must have been an interesting project. Or possibly an eyelet.

  36. I hope the midges stay away from you and your dongle Pet!! Say Hi to Scotland for me and safe journey home. xx

  37. Hi Spyder thanks for popping by to visit - have a safe trip. Hope you find Alistair the perfect spot. Thinking of you. Hugs Helen x

  38. Thank you for the welcome to WOYWW! I see you have a lovely messy desk - the sign of a creative mind!

  39. You are welcome to come to play anytime....I mean that too!
    Have a great time in Scotland.
    Love JoZarty x

  40. The stripey papers look like fun!!! I need to learn how to make stuff like that too! You're so talented!

    I'm having a giveaway, open worldwide this week. Come check it out if you get the chance!

    Amy E. #30

  41. Thank you Spyder for the cute boat. Have a safe trip. I had to read about Alistair. I did not follow you back then. What is a Dongle?

  42. happy WOYWW! your little cows are just sooo cute!
    thank you for sharing!
    peggy aplSEEDS

  43. Hi Lyn. Hope the trip was okay. Desk looks pretty well used, and I don't imagine any Dongle Disturber is going to sneak in Disrupt the Desk!
    Take care,
    Ros. #60

  44. Reading your blog this week has made me feel rather out of breath! LOL. Hope it's been a good week for you - thanks for stopping by.
