WOYWW #446.. Pretty tidy for me..


Hello WOYWWers!!

The last time I played along was July 2016 (WOYWW #370)...

I can't believe it has been so long.

I recently sent Julia a Christmas card and I was delighted to receive one back from her, but her note made me think about you all and the delight I've always taken in seeing your desks.

I stopped playing along as I was traveling so much with work, I really wasn't able to comment on all your desks and it upset me to not return the compliment of a desk visit.

I have also been a bit poorly, cue major op, large complication, 8 weeks off of work - but let's not worry about that, as I am now 100% fit and well and better than ever.

So here I am back for right now..

My desk today (well last night..) is pretty tidy for me! You can see my stamp perfect in action (faux MISTI) I was making baby cards last night, there has been a ridiculous amount of baby arrivals in the last 2 weeks! I have a fave design I always seem to default to for Girl Babies.

Also you can see my wine, water pot, some misc bits of paper for things I am supposed to be working on and some stamp sets for the baby cards.

Here is the original card that I was recreating last night -

I am looking forward to a desk nosy later on today.



  1. Great card Claire, love it. Good to hear you are feeling much better, it's surprising how long these things take to fully recover from, isn't it?Have a lovely Christmas, Love & Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

  6. Hi Claire. Nice to meet you! Glad to hear you are recovering well. I love your baby card! Have a wonderful Christmas, Heather #32

  7. Thrilled to see your name on the list. Less thrilled that you’ve been through a major surgery and all that entails, hope you really are back on top form, it’s very wearing isn’t it! Travelling for work sounds glamorous until you have to do a lot of it, I sure hope you get plenty of rest in between. Love the baby card, with ‘go to’ designs like that, I’d be happy to repeat any number of them. Funny how babies come in waves. Happy Christmas!

  8. How lovely to see you back! I'm pleased to hear you're fighting fit again, it's tough to go through a big health scare. It's so good to see that you've been's more than I've done! Hope you have a great Christmas 🎄🎄🎄

  9. It sounds like you can be excused for not blogging so much, what a busy lady. Hope the op went well. Have a good Christmas and a great woyww too, Angela x8x

    1. Just me back again. Thanks for the visit to mine and of course I will let you see the new card though it may be after the new year as I am running out of time now. Sending hugs, Angela xXx

  10. That is a good enough reason, sounds like you have a very busy fulfilling job. Happy to hear you are on the mend and all is well. Have a wonderful Christmas and a healthy happy New year.

  11. Hi! Its so good to see you back! I'm glad you are now back and better than ever health wise. Have a Very Merry Christmas!

    Lovely card, so cute.
    Happy Christmas - Hugs, Neet 3 xx

  13. Hi Claire, great to see you back. Love the card design. It would be a clever one for local footie (soccer) fans as the team mascot is a hippo. Glad you are fit again after your health difficulties. Merry Christmas. Sarah #9
