WOYWW 30th January 2013

Well, after a bit of a false start - thanks to Orange - I am back, re-starting my attempt at keeping my new year's resolution of joining in with WOYWW every week!

On my desk today we have (roughly left to right!!!)...

My friend's save the date cards which are in the assembly process! All the printing is done, all the cutting is done, the ribbon has now arrived and they just need the paper sticking to the card, the ribbon attaching and the bows adding... Times 50!!!!

In front of those is a small pile of completed cards which I need to find cellophane bags for before adding them to my box of 'stock'!

Then we have some thank you cards made simply from photos of my 2 year old. The joy of him having a December birthday is that this is only a once a year job!!! You may also just be able to spot a baby shower invitation peeping out from underneath!!

And on the workspace / mat itself is a pile of card blanks I cut and folded earlier, plus some more photos ready to be stuck together and written, which is what I'm going to do just as soon as this post is finished!!

Finally...I'm back!!!

Well what a start to the year... We were with Orange for our Internet were offered a much better deal with BT so we decided to change over, simple you would think? Not in this case... Orange were supposed to send us a code to give to BT to enable us to transfer never came but our Internet went off on about 4th January!!! Eventually we managed to find out that Orange had simply cancelled our contract and disconnected us! We have now received our new box from BT and we are well and truly back online (hooray!!!!) so it's time for me to try and catch up with what's been happening in the world and get my blog up-to-date... Just in time for WOYWW tomorrow!

WOYWW 2.1.2013

Having made much more of an effort with my blog last year (partly helped by the purchase of an iPhone and the discovery of the Blogger app, I have decided that this year I am going to attempt to take part in WOYWW... in an effort to make myself keep my desk tidy(ish) as people will be seeing photos of it!!!

So, here we have the first photo of my desk for 2013. I spent most of NYE sorting, tidying and even (shock, horror!) THROWING OUT and now once more have a space I can actually work in!

The shelf part of the desk is my main storage for my ink pads at the moment but the lower shelf is my newly cleaned workspace! To the left of the photo is a stack of now-finished cards that have been sitting unfinished since the Christmas cards were first started! On the working space is the remains of a sheet of toppers I started using last night, plus the card blanks to put them on along with a couple of other paper scraps that I am also going to use on these very basic 'quick' birthday cards to put in my 'stock' box!
