WOYWW number??? Kellies Eye and Two Fat Ladies = 188

Happy  WOYWW!! Well, it looks like rubbish, but it's not...Last weeks gravy cartons are still there, not painted, (Looking like that's all we have, gravy on everything!) Only I have towered them up a bit higher, so now I need more! The cracker paper is still there...Then I pulled out some stash to make a few cards and PooF!! Instant  Mess! Brads everywhere!
...and things piled high and pushed back merged together into one BIG heap....Anyway, I did want to show you my freebies from a Crafty mag last month...instead of using them on cards, I used my glue gun and fixed them onto little pegs to hold up some of my Christmas cards from some ribbon, only I forgot to take a picture, so's here's a 'reconstruction!'

Happy WOYWW! Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!!!


  1. Creative and tidy just don't go together so be just as messy as you need to be Lyn :-) Enjoy the moment :-)

    ps don't forget to check out the bargains in the Jan sale over in our blog shop...

  2. Your gravy tubs are looking well used, bet you don't get them decorated for ages (now there's a challenge!!) Have a good week. Helen, 7

  3. Love how you used the freebies for a card holder- another idea to be squirrelled away till Christmas, when I will probably have forgotten all about it!Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #73 xx

  4. What a great idea for those embellishments too - I got the mag but didn't use them either. I think I might now though! Happy WOYWW! Karen 93 x

  5. Hahaha...I just left Sue's messy desk and now see win. I'm trying to clean my mess of a desk and room and yal are enabling me to keep it messy and take a pic...what's a girl to do. I love those freebies you got in the mag, what a great way to use them.

  6. So many very tidy desks out there today - I am so glad it's not just me with a "normal" one!! Lovely little freebies. x Jo #49
    ps don't forget to check out the bargains in the Jan sale over in our blog shop...

  7. Gorgeous messy desk...I look forward to seeing the gravy containers painted and arranged in all their glory! Thanks for sharing. Caro #46

  8. Liking Gravy Tower, wonde who will move in eventually? Great idea with those pegs, hope you find more of those wooden charms to make a host of them next year.
    Hugs, Neet xx 11

  9. Love the messiness. Looks very similar to my desk.

    I am new to WOYWW and friends with Sandee. Hope you have a chance to check out my blog and desk.

  10. I saved some Pringle tubes to decorate and use as gift holders. Guess what? They're still in the cupboard and Christmas has come and gone.

  11. Happy WOYWW Lyn! I love your idea for those freebies. Wonder if I'll remember that for this year........? Mo :0) x

  12. Nothing wrong with Gravy with everything if that floats your boat, Spyder!!!!
    Love your Chrissy cards and those wooden embellishments look great on the pegs. I brought loads of them back from our Austrian holiday last year as they are huge there but haven't wanted to use them yet. Will have to give this a go.
    Happy WOYWW

  13. Hi
    This is my first time at WOYWW and I hope you don't mind me looking around your blog while I am here.

  14. Lol, I love the Tower of Gravy!! how high are you going to go?? And what are you going t do with it? I'm intrigued :)
    That is one 'creative' desk, but as long as you have fun, then who cares!!
    Hugs, LLJ 38 xxx

  15. I want a gravy tower! I've got a lazy Susan that needs filling with those card pots it would be soooo handy. Gonna buy ten pots and empty the granules into jam jars methinks... see what you've done and the sales of Bisto will soar!! Watch the stock (pun!) market and buy shares early...

  16. Lovely creative mess.... you do eat a LOT of gravy by the look of things - but the pots look great! And I love your little wooden card decorations - sweet idea... Happy WOYWW!

  17. Great post, Lyn. Love your use of your freebies - how imaginative is that?

    I was wandering around Pinterest earlier and found "our" Venetian carnival mask has found its way on there! Fame at last lol!

    Happy WOYWW,
    Shoshi #77

  18. Your desk is like a mixed media work of art, a little of this and a dash of that...or is that a recipe I am thinking of,,,it was the mention of gravy that veered me to a cooking analogy.HA! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  19. Looks like a very busy space to me :) looks great. Love your cards!

    Happy WOYWW!

  25. I like the card holders you made. Those look great! :)

  26. I've dropped my brads a few times....took 4 hours to pick them all up! Yikes.
    I love to see a busy desk just like mine, happy crafting, hugs Erika. 97

  28. Thank you for your visit this week. My desk has got worse since then as I am now crafting in the middle of the mess. You seem to be having a very productive time. I like your card for your sister in law, it is difficult to do cards for people in her position, to show your sympathy but do something a little cheerful. My one aunt did not speak to anyone for years after Mum sent her a card with a sympathetic message on it. xx Maggie #32

  29. Hullo there Lyn,
    Another lovely digi there thank you :D and love your idea for displaying cards.. well done! Thanks so much for sharing ~ happy WOYWW! Shaz in Oz. x #6

  30. That is such a clever idea! I was looking at those freebies and did not know what to do with them, I might just steal that idea. I love your desk, there is so much to look at, I wish I could come for a play date.
    Happy belated WOYWW!

  31. I like your messiness Lyn makes me feel better - is that selfish. Sorry I'm so late saying Happy WOYWW I just can't keep up with everything!!! Anne x #135 ( I think)

  32. Awesome gravy containers and even awesomer (huh?) ribbon holder with charms for your Christmas cards!

    I'm still hopping along WOYWW, better late than never, right? Enjoy the rest of your week! Darnell #30
