Whats On Your Workdesk, Wednesday? my opinion! WOYWW #271....wanting to know more just pop over to Julia's blog to read all about it. I do so enjoy visiting the lives of people I don't know and missed being part of it all last week - being away visiting gorgeous Sophie and celebrating our sons 27th birthday.  Here's my desk this morning displaying two lovely cards from my stamping buddies in Townsville.  On the left you can see I did a spot of shopping with a ream of new white card stock and some spray bottles. You'll also see a card I made and flowers Vikki and I made.  The major thing happening on the desk is me searching the net for rental properties as we're visiting Gladstone tomorrow and need to sign up for a new place real soon, less than a month left in this guess I'll need to start packing soon.
Here's Vikki my stamping skyping friend in her wonderful craft room. I didn't expect to catch up but found a few hours on Saturday so we made flowers.
Well it's about time to think of dinner as hubby has just arrived home, I'll be around later to check out a few desks. Cheers and have a wonderful week Robyn
Sophie with Uncle Ryan
PS, saw on FB today there are 20 Fridays till Christmas!!!


  1. 20 Fridays, makes it sound like it is coming fast! Goodness! What fun to skype and stamp with your friend. My GF and I stamp and talk on the phone, with phone on speaker. But since it is a local call, we can do that. Happy Woyww! #34

  2. Townsville - it really is Neville Shute-esque! A month to find a place pack and move - am seriously impressed at your stress free attitude!
    How lovely to have found time to spend with Vikki, it's quite a production line she's got going there!

  3. Hi Robyn,
    Yes, I was in Officeworks looking for that card but, like you said, 210gsm isn't quite good enough. I suppose I will have to go online :) The metallic card that I bought is 285gsm. Quite nice.
    Good luck with the packing and house hunting!

  4. How lovely to spend some time crafting with a friend. I love to do that when I get the chance.
    Hope you can get some more making in before you need to start packing.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.
    Have a fun week!

  5. 20 Fridays - oh dear and I haven't even had my summer holiday yet!!! Very dainty wee flowers you've been making!

  6. It must be lovely being able to craft with a friend - not something I get to do much - it sounds like you had fun! Little Sophie looks a real cutie - I love that smile! Hope you have a great week,

  7. Hi Robyn, lovely crads from your friends, have a great time in Gladstone,
    my desk is a huge mess at the moment...

  8. Seems you've had a lovely week- Ah little ones! and friends and crds. Who could ask for more?
    Thanks for visiting,
    Robyn 13

  9. Wow, that's quite the floral assembly line!

    Yes, we often do have to stop and make dinner, sometimes it's quite inconvenient. ;-)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  10. 20 Fridays? I did NOT need to know that LOL!! Although when you also say there are 52 in a whole year it kinda takes the pressure off... Flowers on my desk too this week! Happy WOYWW Cindy #57

  11. Hi Robyn, Hope you can find somewhere to rent and the moving process goes smoothly.

    Lovely photo of the little girl and her uncle.

    I was enjoying you blog until you so cruelly put the note about you know what:)

    Hope you have a happy WOYWW

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  12. I hope you find what you are looking for Robyn ... Great photos!

  13. Hi, It is so much more fun crafting with a friend. Love your blue and yellow card on teh extreme left of top pic, beautiful.
    Hope you find a suitable property soon, must be very frustrating having to move around in rental properties.

  14. What a lovely, happy post! Sophie really is a peach, isn't she?! Guess what? I've been to Gladstone! When we went to Heron Island 25 odd years ago, we stayed overnight there! Hope you find a good rental place :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 12 xx

  15. Oh Sophie is so cute!!! I can't believe how calm you sound re finding somewhere and getting moved in a month!!! It doesn't sound long to Christmas when put like that - eeek Happy WOYWW Anne x #33

  16. Oh my word Robyn, I'm hyperventilating just hearing that you've got a month to do a whole search, pack and move! Argh!!!
    Okay let's concentrate on your desk... you've got a lovely space and it's good to see a cuppa is waiting.
    Vikki looks happy making those intricate flowers look very great.
    Enjoy WOYWW

  17. Lovely cards, but I am really in love with that cute drawer cabinet with those coloured drawers! love!!

  18. It's a great idea to craft via skype. Your friend must have a lot of patience to make those little flowers. Hope you find a place to rent quickly, argh the thought of moving makes my toes curl. I'd need 6 semi trailers to move all of my junk! Enjoy your trip up to Gladstone.

  19. Hi Robyn, love your attitude to finding a new place.... so pragmatic. It never occurred to me that you could craft via skype. But then I am always behind the times.

  20. Oh Robyn, I don't want reminding how close Christmas is, it comes too fast and time goes to quickly.
    Nice to have a friend to make flowers with, will you still be close enough to visit when you move?
    Hugs and Thanks for visiting me whilst I was in deepest Wales with no signal hence the lateness of commenting now.

  21. Hi Robyn- you said the scary C-word!Sophie is beautiful! Good to hear about your Dad, and you. Running late this week, Have a great week, Hugs. Shaz #23,xxx

  22. Oh Robyn I don't envy you the pack up and move that is one thing in the past for me that can stay in the past. Only 1 month, yeah you can pull that off and craft too. Good to see you crafting with your friend and having a little fun. We should catch up on skype one day.
