What's On Your Workdesk, Wednesday?

WOYWW #296 and the first for February. my opinion!Here's my desk first thing this morning - yesterday I started at making Mothers' Day cards for the Aussie troops - my friend Karen put me on to this FB site and as I have heaps of time I'm going to join in and make a few.  Lucky for me I found two sheets of 12x12 with mothers day sentiments so I've cut them up into lots of usable pieces and have nearly completed you can see the makings of these cards on my desk today.  On the left next to the laptop I've had a go at making little envelopes out of hearts and will die cut hearts to put in there just got to work out how to display them on a card. And I have a house mouse card on the go - rightside/back.

If you'd like to know more about this craze of displaying our messy creative work  spaces, please pop over to Julias blog....she host this wonderful, sharing, inspiring event....
Thanks for visiting, have a great week Robyn


  1. Robyn,

    Happy WOYWW what a beautiful desk you have today, I love the idea that you are making cards for the troops I did this last year. Can you send me your link for it. I did sent some through Bridget last year and thought I should share it around. You do have some beautiful cards created. Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 21

  29. What lovely cards, and what a fab idea! Thanks for stopping by!


  30. Goodness, Robyn - that's an amazing amount achieved in a few days. The cards are so lovely - well done.
    Wetroom now all finished so John has full use of the bungalow again - couldn't come near the works 'cos of the dust levels. The room works really well, and I can now shower him without resorting to smothering myself in plastic sheets or swimwear - not a pretty sight! There is so much more room to help him then when he was inside the shower cubicle and I was outside...
    Thanks for visiting and for your comments. Yes, I am taking some time to relax. I am enjoying getting to sit in the lounge with crochet hook or knitting needles in hand and watching some real rubbish TV. We haven't had a TV licence for over 30years - so it is a great big novelty at the moment.
    Take care. God bless.
