I've spent the morning in a state of indecision ...
I'm trying to put together a layout and can't decide which of these gorgeous papers to use for it ...
Yes, I'm halfway into Wednesday and this is me just getting around to posting for what's on my workdesk, tut, tut! Why would I reveal my cluttered desk like this to the world ... well, it's for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, a weekly phenomenon hosted by the admirable and estimable Julia Dunnit.
Just for the occasion I've taken a longer shot than usual - well, why not, it makes a change. And, because I have, the rarely seen stamp trolley is in view, not to mention the shelving at the back and even a teensy-weensy glimpse of the dolls house. There's also the items to be found permanently on my desk with one or two temporary 'visitors'. Not usually visible is the box of toppers that I keep on the left corner, resting on that today is a couple of packs of papers that I've been rummaging through. Beside that, like little ducks in a row, are my new winter distress inks - I've been playing :)
The EM presented me with the notebook with the gaily striped cover - it's now the keeper of my crafting to-do list. Sadly, the Quality Street box is no longer full of yummy chocolates, instead it's where I keep some of the old family photographs ... out because I've been searching through it for the photos for the planned layout. Lying on top of that is a fab book on scrapbooking - specifically on scrapping family history ... I've been looking through it for inspiration.
You might also be able to spot a purple stretchy spider, leftover from previous projects, just in front of my WOYWW badge, always to be found somewhere on the desk. Lastly, the powder tray has found a new use, it's now a temporary home to any completed cards awaiting some attention ... in this case I have yet to write up a post on them. Especially for today, here's a group photo.
Now comes the big apology to all of the lovely people who left a comment last week and didn't receive a response for me. I had a difficult time last week, involving as it did a hospital visit for a couple of investigative procedures. One of these required an anaesthetic which took a day or so to recover from, probably because my state of health isn't so good - hence the investigations. Right now I'm still not firing on all four cylinders, but by pacing myself I'm doing what I can, albeit slower than usual. I have thought of taking a blogging break but I think I would miss you all too much too so, for now, I'm keeping on keeping going. Hopefully, that will be good enough for you and that you will keep visiting too.
In the meantime, I wish you all a wonderful week ahead and a great WOYWW, what's left of it.
