WOYWW week 60

Well it's Wednesday and time to show desks but as mine hasn't changed much since last week I thought I would show you the unit I got last week for my craft room.  It was £35 of gumtree a bargain as I was wanting one.  It is in perfect condition as well.
For those who are interested in my puppies they are now 2 weeks old and are moving about much more.  Their eyes are opening and they have yet again doubled in size.
Below is a close up of 2 of them.

This pair are Bruno and Buster

WOYWW week 59

Well its Wednesday again and time to show whats on your desk. Mine is very tidy today as I got a new cutting mat yesterday and had to clear everything away. 
I haven't had much time to craft recently with life in general taking over.  The pups were a week old yesterday and it amazes me how much they have grown, they have doubled in size since birth.

And for thoses of you who like to know about the kittens Fudge (Wallymau Hathor) was at her 1st cat show on Sataurday her new owner sent me this lovely picture of her with all her rosettes
She got a first and Best of Breed for Mau Kitten plus firsts for 'Foreign Not Bred by an Exhibitor kitten' and 'AV Variety Kitten' and seconds for 'AV Kitten under 6 months' and AV Debutante Kitten'.

Right now I have to dash as Samson is going to the vet today to be castrated so I will pop round some desks while I wait to hear when I can collect him.  Right enough of my waffle if you want to see some real craft desks pop over to Julias

WOYWW week 58

Well Wednesday again and time to show whats on your desk. Well nothing is whats on my desk today and no photos of it (Sorry). I had been trying to sort out some ribbon reels but my attention has been diverted by puppies.
 Yesterday my dog skye gave birth to puppies.  So now there are 5 lovely GSD puppies in my house.   3 Black & tan and 2 white pups.  Skye and Ben are my adult GSD and I have had Ben since he was 8 weeks old.  We got skye at 9 months ols they are both 6 this month and have never ever mated even though they have always been together.  Well till 2 months ago that is.  So the last few days I have hardly slept with skye wanting out at 3-4 in the morning and in general just being restless.  Yesterday morning at about 4 am she started to deliver the pups.  She delivered them easily but I have been keeping a eye on them so I am shattered.    So thats why I am typing this at ghastly hours in the morning.

So sorry if you are reading this to hear how I got on with ribbon reels.  Hopefully I will make some progress this week.  And yes to all you who are thinking this woman must be mad with so many animals.   If you want to see some real desks pop over to Julias Blog and have a good snoop.  I am sorry but I just dont think I will manage round many desks today as I am going to try to get some more sleep.

WOYWW week 57

Well it's Wednesday again and time to show whats on your desk. Well mine is definatly a total mess.
On it is a ribbon storage that I have been trying to make. My sample is made mainly paper though I am quiet pleased with the reel. The storage part needs some work.   Maybe next week I will have mastered it.  There is also some dotty paper that I have embossed and my trusty scissors and lots of other mess.

 For those who are interested Smarite is still here but I thought you might like to see a picture of Samson my Maine Coon boy he is huge at 10 months old he is much bigger than my other fully grown male cats.
If you would like to see other desk check out Julias blog.  Have a great WOYWW folks.
