WOYWW #177

Have you entered my birthday giveaway yet?  If not, please click HERE!



Happy (almost) Wednesday WOYWWers!!  Welcome to edition 177 of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!  It's that time of the week when we take a breather from life and go peek at what everybody else is doing on their desks all over the world!  Grab your passport and let's go!

Last week I failed miserably at posting or answering comments, so please forgive me.  I promise to try my best to make it up to you!!

What's on my desk this week is the aftermath of helping my daughter make cake toppers for the charity auction she helped put on for the agency she works at.  I just wrote a comprehensive post about it, and how I spent my birthday this week, HERE.  There's also some VERY IMPORTANT information about domestic violence in that post, so PLEASE go read it when you get the chance!

Anyway, we did our crafting last Tuesday, and I'm a little ashamed to say that this is still the same mess today!  Not only did I not straighten up anything, I also haven't crafted in a week.  That changes tonight!!!  (Or maybe tomorrow?) Don't forget to take a peek for the WOYWW badge/button if that's your thing.

Happy Scrapping! ~Amy E

Sometimes, life just gets busy. I am sure you will get back into the swing of crafting. I am sure the cake toppers were a hit for the charity auction. Have a great day.

Hi Amy

Don't worry about not having touched your desk in a week - I can vouch for having done that plenty of times. well, too often actually.

Hope you show your desk some love soon!!!

Happy WOYWW and congrats on being No.1. Happy belated Birthday - those dessert toppers were gorgeous, and the desserts looked yummy as well. I love your little mini sewing machine - so cute. Ali x #54

Julia Dunnit said...

It's one of the best things about crafting and having your own workspace for it...it just waits for you to get back to it, without whining or pushing...most useful! Seems the week to be helping out our daughters!!

Angie said...

Sometimes time runs away with us and crafting time gets put on hold due to other things. Hope you're able to find crafting time this week.
Happy WOYWW

Some intriguing things on your desk, and if one looks quickly the badge looks like it is part of what it's on! So much so I nearly missed it! Take care Zo xx 71

Don't forget to tidy up this mess before you create a nice new one! (I think it's more fun to create a new "mess" on a clean surface.)

You must be very proud of your daughter Amy, the event she helped chair looks like a great success. Congrats on the No1 spot too. Don't worry about the desk, it's there when you're ready for it.

Hi Amy, It doesn't look that bad, and I have been very bad about crafting lately, but I just finished a Christmas Tree for my 92 yr old Great Aunt, I know Christmas, it is even Halloween, but I wasn't sure what to make her, and she only accepts hand made gifts from me. Anyway, I just posted it on my blog if you want to check it out. I am going to read up on
the auction. Happy Wednesday, karen♥

Dangina Martinez said...

A week is a long time. I have to sit at my work desk daily. Is that bad? Hope you had tons of fun bonding with your daughter.
Hugs, Dangina

Don't you just hate when life gets in the way of crafting time. Unfortunately it happens way too often. Glad you got back into your craft room (saw the cute bear card in current post). Have a great week. LisaDV #164
