WOYWW #218..not a lot happening..

Hello! Yes its that time of the week again, where we all join Julia over at Stamping Ground for the weekly global desk nosy.

My contract finished so I am having a nice relaxing week off whilst I look for my next contract.

My desk is a mine field this week mainly because I am rebelling against my normal Project Management self and being untidy...weird right?

Not a lot going on really - but there are a few new shiny things on my desk - this lovely punch by EK's changed my craft world and I am using it every where.

EK Success Punch
It punches multiple labels / tags at once and if you own the punch go here you can download a free pdf of pretty outlines for the punch. I love Vegas Girl At Heart...

Also on my desk as a newbie is this little box - it was dirt cheap and at the front is a lovely bunch of wooden pencils that my new NYC buddy / work colleague Rose gave me - beautiful right?

New storage
You can also see a chai tea candle that Rose gave me and a coaster that my friend Lexi gave me as a birthday card 'because card makers are impossible to buy cards for' ha ha

Finally - sorry Julia epic post - here is a pic of my NYC craft space, now that my stash has arrived..needs some work, but it feels like a piece of home.

Happy WOYWW ladies..I'm going to have a nose, after lunch with the Hubby who has a day off - YAY!



  1. That DOES look like a fabulous punch! I don't have a lot going on at my desk, either--it's a mess, though, because I'm sorting through everything.

    Happy WOYWW to you, Claire!

  10. Your NYC craft room is shaping up nicely, Claire! I adore those pencils!! Happy WOYWW! Thank you so much for coming to visit me! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #12

  11. Great pics. We see so many Desks/Tables from week to week, but never really imagine the space around said Desk/Table. So that was a fun pic to include. I noticed those very cool pencils straight away.(the box they're in is also awesome) Rose sounds like a really great friend. Enjoy your break from work, soon enough you'll be dreaming of having time off. I always wished I didn't have to work, then I became disabled. Now I'd LOVE to be working. I hope you continue to settle into your new surroundings. Have a great weekend. (((HUGS)))
