WOYWW #448 - It's total chaos...


Bit late to the party today, but still managing to play along with WOYWW.

Today is my last day at work - I am having an enforced hiatus, due to my work permit not turning up in time (sigh). I have decided to not be a slob and have early morning gym sessions planned and lots of crafty projects to keep me alert and out of mischief.

Yeah, so my desk is a hot mess...this is the result of an epic playtime on Monday!

So what can you see? Me!! My computer, my keyboard - which is covered in bits of scrap papers and papers I have pulled out for something else. To the left of my keyboard is a planned out card teetering on top of all the stamp sets I pulled out for my DT makes over at Retro Rubber. At the front you can see punches, cardstock, small trimmer, scissors, some silhouette couple cards I am mid-way through, stamp block, headphones, mouse and pens. That disgustingly coloured pot to the right is my waterpot..sometimes when the things start to grow out of the top I empty it..

Obviously with my first day off tomorrow I'll be trying to tame this beast.

Here is a different colourway of the silhouette couple..I'm thinking Anniversary cards.

See you later for a nosy.


P.s - any WOYWWers going to Crop on the Cape in March? Because if you are I want to smooch you and buy you Gin!


  1. Ha ha! I'm the same with my waterpot - usually the smell wafting through gets me before anything starts crawling out! LOL! Your desk does not look chaotic, it looks like you are very busy with a purpose in mind! The silhouette cards are cute! Have a wonderful 2018, Lindart #28

  2. I think you'll get a few takers for gin at the Crop, lol!! I'd come myself if March wasn't already chock-a-block :-D. What a pain about your you have to come back to the UK while it's being processed? Well done for keeping yourself busy, I suspect I'd slob if I was in your position :-D

  3. Hi Claire, I do hope your work permit gets sorted quickly for you. Have a lovely week, Hugs, Shaz #5 XxX

  4. Happy New Year Claire. Trust your work permit gets sorted quickly. Erm... your desk is SO NOT that bad! The crop sounds good - but I'm afraid I'm on the wrong continent... Sorry, can't hang out with you.
    Take care. God bless.

  5. hope you get your work permit soon. though I have had 2 days back at work after the Christmas break and are ready for another one.... Gin at the crop sounds fun... must make sure Julia puts it on her next menu!! Helen #3

  6. Ah no I hope your permit gets sorted. Love the anniversary card idea!

  7. At least you will have some time to craft but hope the permit comes soon. Here to wish you a great woyww and a very Happy and creative New Year, Angela x15x

  8. Too funny; for all the years I lived on the Cape, I never did the crop. Have fun! And while I hope your permit comes soon, I'm sure you will enjoy the time to craft, and ok, maybe go to the gym (shudder).
    Have a great week.

  9. Love that smooching couple! Seriously, hot mess? I think my crafting table of doom must be the temperature of the centre of the sun then! I made my cheese card mostly on the chopping board as there was nowhere to find a flat surface to stamp on otherwise!

  10. I can seeeee you! Bit of a bummer about the work permit, is that normal? bad red tape? How frustrating. You’ll be miles ahead on DT deadlines! The smooch couple is wonderful, I have a My Hero Stamp that would look fab.....yep, can use that no prob!
    If Crop on the Cape were later in the year, I would seriously seriously like to do it. Specially where there’s gin involved. Went to a Creative Escape in Phoenix years ago and I think me and my chum were the only people who drank! Awkward.

  11. Hi Claire - thanks for the lovely comments about Tilly Tea Dance's work. I will pass them on - she will be so pleased. x Jo
