WOYWW #220 - Super Excited!!

Hello everyone, hope you are going to join the rest of us and Julia over at Stamping Ground for the weekly desk nose.

I am super dooper excited, as my Ma and Goddaughter arrive tomorrow. I am an only child and being away from my family is hard - especially my Ma as we are very close. It's going to be amazing to have them here and I have a few days off next week so I can squire them around town.

So what is on my desk this week - a new stamp set by Inkadinkadoo, which was $1.99 from Marshalls, my glasses, a bone creaser, small glue roller, scissors, some printed digital stamps by Bugaboo for OWH cards, my fancy corner rounder thingy, my computer mouse (which I love, he is wireless..), the usual array of pens, pins, glues, glitter and tools. Reasonably tidy methinks.

I like to show you something pretty and not just my chaotic this week I thought I'd show you a card I made for the Son of a friend.

Card for Dexter
He is 5, so I thought he'd like the robots..he is the last birthday I have in August and I am working hard on September, which is Anniversary / Birthday madness.

This does mean that we are only 5 and a half weeks away from my 40th birthday!! I don't mind being 40 - I just can't believe it's nearly here already.

For those of you that don't already know, my bestie Lemon and Hubby's bestie Polly (with her hubby) are coming to celebrate with me / us and we are heading to Atlantic City!!! That will more than make up for the fact that for the first time in years I will be without my usual birthday posse...

Happy WOYWW.



  1. Our birthdays always seem to be creeping up on us and then they are gone in the blink of an eye. I am sure you are going to have the blast of a life with you mum and goddaughter when they arrive, nothing like having your mum around, wish mine was still with me, I miss her so much.

    Happy WOYWW

  6. Happy Woyww, Have fun with the visit :-} Im slowly making my way down the list, it seems to take for ever. Have a good day and bright blessings to you and your Roberta 26

  7. Oh, what a super robot card for a little boy! He'll love it! I think all my family birthdays seem to come in September or October too, so -yes - I know what you mean by madness! But it's fun too! Have a lovely visit with your mum and god-daughter! I'm an only one too! Happy WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #35

  8. I agree that your desk is tidy. Great robot card, any little boy would be delighted to receive that.

  9. Your desk is really tidy. That card is so cute, he will love it. Enjoy the time with your Ma and Goddaughter. Happy crafting #7

  10. Thanks for the great look at your desk and I am loving your new stamps, what a great buy at $1.99 and your card for your son's friend is adorable. I am sure it will be loved. It sounds like you have wonderful plans for your birthday coming up and I hope you enjoy the time with your family arriving this week. Happy WOYWW! Danie #17

  11. Oh it will be fun to have your Mum around for a while, and then...Atlantic Coty, how great. Being in your forties is absolutely the best, so I urge you to look forward and take it all in! I think your sk passes 'reasonably' and aspires to 'very' in the tidy stakes..specially and particularly as you don't have to lift anything to see another thing!

    1. Hey Julia, I will enjoy both Ma and Amy being here and my 40th
      , living life to the full is my mantra and my Hubby has been amazing with the planning, etc - makes it easier not to have all my people with me to have him always supporting me - ha ha I believe that you are not the first person to mention how 'tidy' my desk is...but I am a Project Manager, so this is unbelievably messy in my desk at work looks like the desk of an OCD type and not a crafter..Cx

  12. Great card for Dexter, Claire! He will love it! You do have lots of exciting things in store! Enjoy your 40th - next time you turn around, you'll be 64! It doesn't go any slower and you are just as shocked every single year! Happy Belated WOYWW! Thank you for the visit to me and for your sweet get well wishes! I'm taking it easy and letting the Mister spoil me! Darnell #16
