WOYWW 194 - Having a great time

Hello and happy WOYWW to you all.

Pop over to visit Julia at Stamping Ground if you don't know what I am talking about.

So what's on my desk. Well I literally just took this photo (10.10am), so what you can see is what I left there after a hard day's craft. My glasses, tweezers, an order to fulfil, glitter as I am trying out a tip from Alison Scott - a fellow WOYWWer whose blog I like. My Promarker chart and a wallet of Promarkers, the trusty ATG, a roll of double sided tape - to stick down giant Dinosaurs (I'll explain next week), a shark card - which I love and is for an order and I drew the shark on my computer. There are bits of scrap paper, a few stray markers, punches, glues and you can see my desk recycling bin - that I finally emptied last week...doesn't look like it. The crab die-cut I got out to make myself laugh..crabbymoose...

As you know I went to my Nephew's 2nd birthday party last week, all Thomas the Tank Engine themed, so I offered to make train themed thank you cards for my SIL. Here is a pic -

Made using a Lettering Delights alphabet - cute right?

Also here is a pic of Otis and I on his birthday..ha ha
I am filling x3 rather large orders at the moment. One is for my fave customer Kathryn, she is so unfussy and is happy with whatever I give her. It makes her orders fun for me :)

I am finally having some fun with being at home, not feeling guilty for not working and it's nice. I have nice things planned for the rest of the week - LFW tomorrow, out with my Goddaughter on Friday and then over to JT's for Gin, Curry and a mini playdate. It will be nice to have human contact in daylight hours :)

I am off on a little errand run today, as I haven't left the house for 2 days, I thought I'd go all out today, but first I'm going to have a little peek at some desks.

Random question...if you are a WOYWWer do you visit the same desks first every week? I do :)



  1. Beautiful card and photo :0)
    looks like you are having a great week.
    As a fairly new (only my 3rd WOYWW) today.
    I am trying to visit lots of desks which is lots of Fun x
    Happy WOYWW Heather # 72

  4. LOVE the shark card, would love a better picture of it! Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  5. Love that shark card. ;-)
    Hope the glitter and glue stick does what you want it too. Can't beat a bit of sparkle.
    Thanks for the mention. Much appreciated.
    Love the photo of the wee fella. A real cutie.
    Enjoy your daytime socialising. Don't feel guilty.
    As for WOYWW I go to those I follow first then as many as I can starting from (for this week as its my number) all the 5s then the 1s and so on.
    Happy WOYWW

  6. Love your desk Claire, I could sooo happily work there with all the pretty colours surrounding you! I agree LOVE the shark card hehe. What a happy photo of you and your nephew! Happy WOYWW. As for the WOYWW blogs, I am pretty random in my picking, but I do tend to start at the end as they are the people that have the least comments and I like to add mine to them :-).

  7. Okay, well, easy for me to comment 'cause I just ditto what Janene said, Claire! Especially about the shark card and your nephew! Great post!

    I always respond first to anyone who has already visited me (like you) and then I start from the bottom up with the numbers that end in the same last digit as me, stopping also at the folks I've visited before, and then it's hit or miss. It's only been a little over a year for me and in that time WOYWW has grown so much. That's fun, but it really is impossible to visit everyone unless that's all you want to do for a week!!

    Which, by the way, sounds like it's shaping up to be a fun one for you. I know what you mean about getting out and seeing peeps. I can go for days w/o that and then I have to get out of here! Especially now with this blankity-blank reorg I've started ...!

    Thank you for coming by the Playhouse and leaving some love! Darnell #48

  8. Great cards, love the train. And 2 happy kids!! My visits are whoever...I try to get to those who visit me and pick as many as I can each week over and above the regulars. But time and life sometimes interfere. Have fun, Happy WOYWW

  9. Wow - you're a busy lady. Love the shark card.
    I don't go to desks in any particular order - I just start clicking on the links. :-) April #130

  10. I love the shark card! Happy belated Otis!
