WOYWW #224

Hi everyone - if you would like to join in on WOYWW pop on over to Stamping Ground and Julia will give you all the deets...

Apologies first up to those that popped by last week - my pc issues appear to be on the mend however there are blogger issues out & about - my sister in northern NSW - as well as others in the UK have also told me of issues with the try again Ignore warning messages... so I am gonna persevere...

Here is my desk right now...
I have been really lazy had a creative block for nearly two weeks - luckily it coincided with the internet issues LOL - but am hoping my mojo kicks back in - I have been asked to do 10 personalised chrissy cards, a wedding card and a "vein removal" !! card... so I better get my skates on...

I am starting with the wedding card using a die I got really cheap at lincraft the other week - and the spellbinder window and medallion diecut are still on my desk... I relented and bought 2 rolls of printed "masking tape" - I am thinking very similar to washi which I have managed to avoid so far...

My watercolour card is still there - not quite right yet - and I went and got myself a set of watercolour pencils to help move things along - its my Chrissy present!!!! They fit perfectly in my carousel
I got a nice surprise when I stepped outside earlier today so quickly grabbed the camera...

This "baby" Kookaburra sat there for about 5 minutes and just as I took a 3rd shot "she" decided that was enough - I had to keep Smokey at bay while doing this as the back door was wide open - she was not impressed LOL...

That's it for me - hope you all have a fantastic week - hugs...

Thanks for stopping by... Mxx

EDIT: Just had to delete 3 other versions of this post - due to blogger issues and it took almost 90 minutes to finish due to internet buffer issues... whew - at least I got my fix!!


  1. Hi.
    Loving having a peek at your world today. It all looks like fun from here.
    Thanks for sharing and I hope you have a great week.

  2. Not quite sure what a vein removal card is. Technique or a card for someone having veins removed?

    Either way, good luck

    Thanks for sharing your crafting space and have a great week

  3. How do you do that thing...putting a line through what you typed? I even posted that question on my blog. too funny:) Be well Thanks for the peek #92 Carole

  4. Love the tidy desk..interesting set of cards you have to make :) Happy WOYWW Cx #42

  5. Love the bird, how cute. I think a vein removal card is for someone in hospital having the procedure done. Is it varicose veins? Anyway that will be a challenge and am waiting to see what you come up with! Happy WOYWW! Karen 93 x

  6. Great pencils and what fabulous pics of the Kookaburra... that's is like a giant Kingfisher is it not ??!!


    IKE in Greece #49 xx

  7. Not more Blogger issues! Will it never end? Thanks for the photos and for identifying your bird visitor. I love your carousel full of watercolor pencils. I also have to comment on the vein removal card--now there's one I'm quite sure Hallmark doesn't do!!!

  8. What pretty little remnants on your desk, glad you got through some of your intranet problems. What kind of water color pencils did you get?
    Not liking up for WOYWW this week and for probably next 4 weeks. Too much on my plate for Wednesdays. I'm just popping around to the blogs I follow, or trying to LOL
    Have a great week!!

  9. Thanks for sharing your desk like the flowers you have there for the card you are making. I too wonder how to do that line thingy :-) Anne x #112

  10. well it looks like you are going to be kept really busy and I look forward to seeing your finished cards. Loving the watercolour pencils I hope they give you great results
    Have a great day today and a wonderful weekend

  11. What great pics!!! That big thing was a baby?? We only see the kookaburras in the zoo, and they look at my daughter and me as if we're completely insane, as we try to do their kooka call.

    Once you get to making those cards again, your mojo will jump into action!

  12. Sounds like you are going to be very creatively busy with all those orders over the coming days. Your pencils fit beautifully in your new carousel and I love the pics of the Kookaburra you are so lucky to have them frequent your home. I hear them around us here but never really see them, luckily for us there are plenty of other birds however gracing our backyard. Like Candace I would love to hear more about the vein removal card. Have a great week! Danie #32

  13. Hi Mo, cute kookaburra sitting on your back fence! Hope your internet improves soon. Mine is good sometimes and slow others. Oh well, sounds like you'll be very busy for the next little while! Cathy x

  14. What a beautiful visitor you had! How on earth do you do a vein removal card though...
