Firstly, here is the link to the lady who started us all with this wonderful weekly addiction - sharing piccies of our workspaces with many crafters around the world.  I now work out which day of the week it is by knowing whether it is WOYWW or not!   Julia's Stamping Ground

Secondly, I am going to do another short post this week - just a few photos, as not a lot of crafting has gone on again.  I have mainly been concentrating on getting samples done for the new business side of my crafting, TeddyBob Crafts (I am also on Facebook and Pinterest).  I did win 2 crafty competitions - both with magazines, but not sure which as they did not put compliments slips in with the prizes.  I had an IndigoBlu stamp, plus a CD-Rom/cardstock/card blanks/envelopes from Cupcake Crafting.  So nice to get surprise Happy Post!

I haven't offered any Blog Candy for a while, so for one lucky commenter this week (draw will be next Tuesday at 12 pm), I will put together a package of 'stuff' that I have cut out on my Silhouette Cameo, plus some sheets of my backing papers.  Happy to post abroad BTW.

Happy WOYWW to everyone.  I really enjoy being nosy and checking out all your workspaces!

My furry friends, and cushions, that keep me company

A view from a strange angle - shows the chest of drawers
that contain all of my cardstock/card blanks/envies/
small collection of decoupage/iris folding supplies etc.
Ran out of space, so more is now being piled on top!

The L-Shape of 2 folding tables where I spend
many happy hours.  Looking reasonably tidy, but
my In Tray is literally bursting at the seams.

A close-up of the desk area next to my PC.
The green basket contains card samples, behind it you
can just see a cute digital mini book page featuring our cat, Milky.
You can also see the farmyard outside the window.  I can
now sit here and see what my ponies are up to.

  18. I can see why you can spend hours in here. And to see the ponies while crafting makes it even more special. Of course, the ponies don't take the place of all those awesome stuffed animals (grin). Happy slightly belated WOYWW from #10.
