WOYWW 230

WOYWW or What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday is the day when us crafters share photos of our workspaces and details of our lives.  Come and join in.  We are friendly!  Julia @ Stamping Ground has all the necessary details and Mr Linky.

My photo this week shows me taking over the kitchen island with my little box of toppers to be cut out.  I am making hedgehog-themed cards/gifts for a local rescue service to sell, and in between making cards/ATCs for family/friends (there are a lot of birthdays at this time of year, and I signed up for several ATC swaps) I am hunting through my CD-Roms and digikits for any sign of the cute prickly animals.    My aim was to keep printing sheets out, and then cut them out whenever I had a spare minute in the kitchen or in front of the tv.  However, my new Samsung 'phablet' has been very useful for Facebook/Twitter/Pinterest, and I end up on that for hours in the evening!




Happy WOYWW to everyone that I do not manage to visit.  I hope that everyone in the UK (or then Northern Europe afterwards) survived the storm on Monday.  It didn't come anywhere near us.

  1. Good morning WOYWW neighbour! We were lucky in that the storm passed us by too though I didn't drive through the forest for a couple of days...there were quite a lot of branches down but no big trees thankfully :-)
    Good for you for making the cards for the refuge..I do admire places like that. They do an amazing job on very little funds normally.
    Hugs, LLJ 35 xx

  3. The storm was quite gentle with us in Dover. I haven't seen any damage in the area but I think we all took precautions. I was worried that my craft cabin would blow away! Fantastic job on the cards for the rescue centre. Hugs. Pam#39

  6. We always start with good intentions to cut pictures out but end up with achey paws and a lack of will! What a great cause you're making for though.

  14. Good on you for making the cards, you're really kind. I love hedgehogs, my daughter had a hedgehog stamp somewhere but it would take forever to go through her junk to find it. I started with Pinterest but just didn't have the time for it, so gave that away. Glad the storm didn't get you.
    Have a great week,
