First WOYWW in Ages

The Bad Fairy of Procrastination is sitting on my shoulder this week.  I have loads to do but so far I'm getting nowhere.  Once I've done this blog post I really really will get on with some crafting.  Deadlines approach so quickly, don't they?  
Okay, so I'll probably make a coffee once I'd done this BUT THEN I'll start the crafting.  I really will.....
I thought it was time I joined in with Julia's desk-sharing fun again - especially as I had a bit of a tidy up yesterday afternoon (yes, I was procrastinating then, too).  It must be the first time in at least 3 months that I've seen the surface of the desk.   Photos can be clicked on for a closer look!
 As we've had the spare room set up as another guest room over Christmas and New Year I moved my little photo studio into the study, next to my craft desk.  I'm wondering whether to leave it there or whether it's going to be in the way too much.  Anyway, as it's here atm I thought I'd add a photo of that too.  I started off with some small lamps and the studio cube in the photo and used the whole studio just on the floor.  The lamps and cube were upgraded for my birthday but as the new cube is HUGE I'm still using the old one most of the time.  Besides the new one is one of those tent things which you can get up easily enough, but flattening them again is a skill - which I've not learned yet :0
 To finish with, here's one of the few cards I've managed to make lately.  It's a commissioned card for a little girl.  Mr Mojo is AWOL just now so I fell back on the circles teddy to make this one.
 I used:
sei papers, Gingham ribbon, Glitter card in pink and yellow, Various Prima flowers, Sentiment is pc generated, Circles and child's name are cut with Craft Robo

Hopefully I'll get around lots of the WOYWW links and see what everyone is up to this week.  Hopefully too, I'll actually get a couple of things ticked off that crafty to-do list....

Thanks for popping by today, please visit again soon

Shame the fairy didn't do the tidying for you - I'd have asked if I could hire her for a while! Fab girly card, nothing wrong with the tried and trusted solution of a circle teddy!

I’m just picking myself up off the floor Kathy because I’ve never actually seen the surface of your desk before Lol!

I have one of those little photo studios too but unlike you I don’t have anywhere I can leave it up…..guess what’s coming next……that’s why it doesn’t get used very often. They do make a difference though and you can see that in cute teddy card. He’s so Sweet!

Nice to see you back Kathy, well, I assume it's Kathy, it might be someone completely different who has tidied Kathy's desk for her! Don't think I've EVER seen your desk before, ok, so that might be a teensy bit of an exaggeration, but it's probably not far off the truth!
