WOYWW - 151

Another Wednesday and another opportunity to go and see what Julia is up to on her work desk and then hop over to lots of other work spaces, all over the World, to see what everyone else is up to this week.

This was my desk when I ran away to do some baking yesterday afternoon, it's just the same this morning - although the cold cup of black coffee has at least gone - and it's pitch dark in here with rain hammering against the window:(
The last of the wedding invitations all ready for assembly to the back, little diamante hearts (I had to order more when numbers changed hence the delay) are all threaded onto aubergine ribbon - amazingly fiddly too:( At the front some House Mouse decoupage - mostly ready assembled too - so I can whip up a card today for Rudolph Day/week over at Sandra's here.

A pair of scissors to be 'de-stickied' almost out of shot - has anyone ever found any non-stick scissors that don't need a good clean now and then? And, also to the right, a little box of magnet pairs ready to pack and send off to some Snippets Playground friends who liked the magnetic bookmarks I showed on Sunday's new snippets challenge here.

Oh my gosh, this is my 501st post on here! That sort of snuck up on me.

Short and sweet this week - have a super WOYWW, and happy snooping!



  1. Still not finished that wedding stationery???? :-) We have been doing the order of services and table labels here this week ....nearly finished! Just god a wedding dress to get ready and 4 bridesmaids dresses to alter now! :-)

  2. I love that Christmas decoupage image Di, it will look great on your card. Its raining hard here too, again!!

    Have a great WOYWW, Luv Karen xx

  3. Sigh, chucking it down in Wild, Windy Wiltshire too....
    But at least it means I can't do the gardening today, more time for WOYWW...hooray :)
    I fully admire anyone who takes on a mammoth task like the wedding stationery, you'll be glad when it's all over. Well done for doing it!!
    Hugs, LLJ # 33 xx

  4. I'm with LLJ above in the admiration stakes AND the wild, windy weather! Sheesh!

    Your desk looks VERY tidy to me! My "non-stick" scissors also need a sticky clean up with WD40 occasionally too! LOVE that stuff! The thinking woman's de-gunker! LOL!

    Happy WOYWW xxx

  5. I'm in Hampshire too - isn't it a ghastly day - just right for sitting indoors and crafting! Your desk looks so inviting - neat and everything in it's place, just ready to get to work!

  6. I think we have your rain to come later in the day, Di so when you have the sunshine just think of us up North getting the rain you have sent us!!!!!
    Bet you'll be glad to see the last of that wedding stationary, it sounds like a big job.
    I keep one pair of scissors just for sticky stuff, always cleaning them is too much like hard work.
    Happy WOYWW

  7. Argh...number changes! You have really reminded me why I don't do wedding stuff any more! I do like how you 'run away' to do other things...does it count if i just sit here and think about them?!!

  8. I love how you've organised stuff, so me! Not found scissors that don't need to be de- stuck at some point, I find a quick squirt with the Crafter's Companion stick away works a treat! Take care & enjoy WOYWW. Zo xx 77

  9. my biggest nightmare is someone asking me to do a mass production, I know I'll cop out and do one painting and get it printed, I have great admiration and respect for those of you out there that do it ALL by hand - wonderful a real labour of love, well done,

  10. I thought I spied some wedding bits, but thought it best not to mention it as I like to keep breathing at all times thanks!!! Not found any scissors yet, we live in hope. Have fun! Karen x

  11. Very industrious desk today Di, and no I have never found a set of non stick scissors that don't need cleaning lol will let you know if I do though. Hugs, Amanda x

  12. A lovely organised desk Di. I love the mouse house design, it is very cute.

    Scissors? Yeah mine are 'gunked' up too and if its not them it's my fingers covered in crystal effects lol.

    The weather can only be described as 'disgusting' here! What's worse than rain, is rain with wind, yuck!!

    Keep dry friend and have a good day xx

  13. thank you for the look around your crafting space today
    love Hm very cute
    vicky #104 woyww
    Ps I also have saturated canary candy on my blog

  14. I have only done one lot of wedding stationary and that was enough! Though if anyone asked again I would no doubt say Yes!!
    Love that HM design. Gorgeous. I am with Sandra on the WD40. Keep a can in my room now. At least it doesn't get Hubby's greasy marks on it!!

  15. I have that image Di and it will look perfect for the challenge so what are you waiting for .........get those fingers moving and publish your

  16. Another busy day for you then - I think I missed your desk last week - must be me age!!! Pouring down here so I have been tidying kitchen cupboards - above and beyond the call of duty, I know! Have a great week. x Jo

  17. I haven't found any non stick sissors but I have found this stuff that gets the yuk off super fast and it is called citrus clean, it smells like oranges and it is amazing, no joke one wipe and yuk gone without any effort.

  18. Happy Wednesday!!!

    Love the little House Mouse fella....very sweet he is!


  19. Love the house mouse image so cute.... I'm still helping my daughter with wedding invites... its a task and a half.. well done to you, Hugs May x x x No10

  20. Such a lot of work for the wedding stationary, a real labour of love. Great desk, nice to see some HM on show, but I know you have HM stamps that you don't like to colour so I'm going to challenge you to make a second card for Rudolph Day and actually stamp and colour a HM image!! Are you up for it, lol!!

  21. I bet you'll be glad when that wedding stationery is finished! Love your Christmas card. I'm afraid mine is still at the planning stage but I might get it done. Kate x

  22. Well done on getting this far with the wedding stationary. I did it once, prefer not to do it again! Happy WOYWW, Anne #61

  23. I was wondering if we would get a wedding stationary update today or not. All my stick-free scissors need to be cleaned from time to time. The non-stick pan needs spray. The non-tracking cat litter tracks... we get lied to a lot when you stop to think about it. I thought the magnetic bookmarks were fab and can see why folks wanted the magnets to try it out. I want to do the Rudolph challenge and get a jump start on things but you know how my life is. I'll get around to it about December 20th.

  24. I can't imagine doing wedding stationery - I don't think I would have the staying power!!TFS Cindy #43

  25. Hello Di, that wedding stationery job seems to be never ending for you, bet you'll be glad when it's done and dusted. The House Mouse decoupage looks cute - will be looking out for it in your next post :) Hope you have a lovely creative week. Elizabeth x #113

  26. My only tip about number changes in wedding invites is, use photo glue for the inserts, then you can pull them out and still use the card with a bit of fiddling about! Thank you for my snoop! Have a lovely crafty week! Happy WOYWW!
    Late this week! #102

  27. sorry to be late! Great desk this week! Glenda#103

  28. Hello Di,

    I'm spreading out WOYWW through the weekend, I'm afraid.

    Your workdesk looks mighty neat. I bet you will be one happy lady when those invites are gone! hee hee

    I saw the card in today's post - I'm amazed at all the layers. It looks great!!


  29. Love the little mouse reading by candlelight! You have a pleasant little spot for your crafting! Thanks for letting us snoop!
