WOw! Look What's On My WorkDesk This Wednesday!

It's WEDNESDAY!!!! ((wave!)) Time to run crazy with scissors and eat spaghetti through a straw.
Hi to all you woywwers! Hope you are all well and fighting fit for another trundle around the blogworld of crafty places! Pop Over to Julia's Stamping Ground and join in!!

First...this package arrived for me... yesterday?? the day before?? Who could have sent it???
Ink splatters everywhere and spidery writing???
Carefully I turn it over... More splattered ink, (brilliantly dolloped I might add, I was so glad it was black and not red))
I opened it with care ((attacked it with a sharp knife and a pair of scissors!)) and.....
surprisingly a very tidy little bundle was inside! I poked it, then quickly unwrapped it....

And this amazing creation appeared!
It was made for me by the one and only Donna. (who is completely crazy, mad and insane in a very creative sort of way!) This is my ~ I'm calling it my clutter book ~ because I just know if my brain (sometimes called Brain because I'm a rubbish speller) was a book, it would look just like this!!
It's for keeping notes of Pottery Things and Stuff I do!! (I think I might add OTHER stuff and things to it too! Because it's so much more than that) Isn't it just amazing?!?
Hubby thought it was completely ... he used a big word that I can't spell, which I'm sure meant ... brilliant, amazing and completely incredible.. (He's gone to bed coz it's about 1.30 in the morning here as I type, which means it'll be at least 3 before I see my bed)
Donna showed this to you on woyww last week and here it is in the 'flesh', here!! On My Bench!
I tidied up... a bit... so I could show it off and here it is on my lower bench, (Moved from the kitchen) next to what I've been trying to do all week and failed...
Hopefully that'll get done later today. (No it wasn't)
So that's what's on MY desk this Wednesday...

And on my other bench ??? Nothing!! It's tidy!! Honest!! (fib) In fact it's sooo tidy, you'd never believe it's my desk! See, empty...nothing to look at here!!
OOps!! In my excitement I've pressed something weird and my post has now got lots of dots and dashes around the edges, and has the word 'body' typed in at the top!! Oh No!! Quick! I'd better post it before it crashes!!
So... off you go, nip over to Julia's Blog and join in... Catch you all later!! (I hope!) This was on timer...

email me for freebie kitty-kat!

    Hugs, LLJ #7

  21. What a fantastic gift you received - Hazel, WOYWW #85 x

  22. Hi Lyn, thanks for your comment, I seem to be doing "catch-up" with replying to posts as I have been at badminton this morning. Lucky you getting such a great book. BJ#12

    1. ohoo Badminton?? 'Horsey Badminton?!?' How fabulous!

  23. That is one crazy book!! I love it!! What a dear friend she is to take the time to put it together for you. Uh, I think you better get something going on that tidy space, it's just not YOU :) Happy WOYWW #122

  24. Oh wow Lyn that one fabulous gift, and so much of it to. hugs Shirleyxxxx

  25. Well, if you'd posted the tidy desk picture as the first one, I'd have assumed that you'd moved house! What a fab piece from Doone...I totally understand your delight, it's sort of everything you wish you could do and more...she's so un-inhibited!

  26. LOL, just wondering if she intentionally meant for the packaging to be a messy mystery or did it get wet? Glad it made it to you safe and sound though! Nice to have friends who do things like that for you, isn't it? waving hi from the chilly, rainy hills of North Carolina #132

  27. your book is so cool but my eyes keep being drawn to the quality street choccies!
    Happy WOYWW, Debxx

  28. Wow! I enjoyed the read through your blog this morning. I was so excited to see what was in the package and then.... ta da! Such a lovely book! And I just died at your description that if your brain were a book it would look like this. Mine would too, only maybe not that artistic.. maybe some spiders or other weird bugs crawling about.

  29. Join the gang! It's great getting and owning a Doing of Doone. I love my book and I know you'll treasure your's too.
