It's Wednesday! It's 10am! and it's ...

WOYWW12004

Time for WOYWW! Can I just say I did that in my bestest it's Friday, it's 5 o'clock and it's Crackerjack voice. I say that like I actually said it ... which of course I did n't ... so it was in my bestest Crackerjack font really! I do hope you are all impressed!

Never heard of WOYWW??? I find that terribly hard to believe ... I mean it is nearly a year old ... Where have you been? Our lovely hostess with the mostest Julia has been working on the arrangements to celebrate the movement with the help of one of the original WOYWWers ... Angie ... to make this an anniversary we will never forget ... so make sure you check her out and join in ... you still have plenty of time before the big day!

OK ... the desk ... is a hive of ... erm ... nothing really ... half started cards ... a finished card that I cannot photograph well enough to blog ... a row of Tildas. I don't actually plan on making a Tilda card any time soon ... I might add ... but the lovely Dan reorganised my Pro Markers and in an effort to master shading I decided Tilda was as good as any to practice on! WOYWW22004

There is also a piece of Lord Tim of Holtz paper ... I have used it on a card which is currently under construction ... oh yeah ... and the bird house which I have also half started with Timmy papers ... you know Tim ... the man that took a few days off from emails and blogging to successfully calculate the effects of volcanic dust clouds on the jet engine while building a life size model of the Taj Mahal with just the star adornments charm and a solitary droplet from an Aged Mahogany re-inker.

I swung today too ... just behind where I sit ... you know me ... any excuse to photograph my yummy blending tool storage ... which I still love! That is rare for me too ... I am a bit fickle when it comes to loving things ... usually LOVE them for a week or so and then they become part of the furniture.

Righty-ho ... last week I was a terrible WOYWWer ... I did n't leave a comment on hardly any desks ... although I did visit them all ... this week I am going to visit and comment and just generally make up for being so lax.

Have a good day everyone and if you want to join in this crazy thing we call WOYWW ... go check out Julia ... innit :0) That was me trying to be hip and trendy by the way!

See yas!

Love to see all those amazing creations of yours on the wall, fab u lous. What a busy busy desk, love it.

Kirsti said...

Your desk looks very busy Linda - a bit like mine except mine is busy doing nothing at the mo as I suspect i have left my mojo in Tenerife!!!

Kathy said...

Fab looking desk today, Linda - looks sooooo busy and creative. I think there's a new Distress Ink and matching Stickles being released at the end of the week - have you heard about it?

It's a grey-white colour, with glassy, glinty bits in it and it's called Volcanic Ash

Craft Addicts - Tracy Evans said...

You look like you have been very busy this week Linda, your desk looks a mass of activity and inspiration. Have a great day, Tracy Evans x x

Mandy - Crafty Angel said...

tildas are great to practice on, loads of big bits! thanks for swinging around and sharing your blending tool storage, I soooo NEED those, truth be told I need everything Tim!

hugs mandyxx

Kaz said...

LMAO at Kathy's comment!!

Lovely lot of bits to look through again. I'm loving the look of all those coloured handled things. I'm assuming scissors. Are they matching the DI colours?! xx

Suzie said...

oooh I like that orange tree-like looking thing you have going on there .... Looking very busy!

Julia Dunnit said...

AH, you know you're creating and not giving away enough when you have to use the radiator as a display board! Good for Dan, organising your PMs - bet he was driven to distraction by them - strikes me he's pretty organised sort of guy.
Comments on WOYWW - there's no law Linda, really I was having a teeny pop at the people who promote before playing, and that aint you!!

Lothian Crafts said...

Lots of crafting happening on your desk.

joey said...

Helen said...

I have had a fab rummage today, I LOVE that orange tree, simply fab. And your beer mats look super hanging up on the wall, with all those pin holes.....
Thanks for stopping by my space already!

Nicks said...

Tilda's?? no mouths.. or is it no noses??

Wipso said...

I love all the gorgeous coloured projects hanging above your desk.

Paula Gale said...

well - my jaw just dropped when you said you were colouring tilda's - i never thought i'd see the day that you'd do that - let alone ADMIT it!!!

Phew - you brought said jaw back to its rightful position when you explained... were the tilda's really Dans LOL

Lovely to see the swing - hope this week is not as manic for you...

Paula x x x

Toucan Scraps said...

The orange/rust paper with the tree on it looks stunning - is that the card you are working on?

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Oh Linda you crack me up with those descriptions of Tim hehehehehehe
I think you really DID say it in your Crackerjack voice! Love the card in progress, as for Tilda (not that I'm a huge fan of the no-mouth images, but there are some cute ones of Tilda) fancy just using her to brush up your shading techniques, she'll be most offended.
Anne xx

Chrissie said...

Ooooh! lots of things to zoom in and snoop around here Linda.
Some great WIP too.
I'd forgotten about the Crackerjack thing... but you took me back!
Chrissie

Joy said...

Love those beer mats and I can't wait to see what you do with those Tildas ( love her ) I didn't think you were a Tilda kinda girl! xx

Rosie said...

I don't do Tildas or cute stamps of ANY kind either, but do see what you mean about good for practising on. I love seeing your beer mats hanging up there and was deeply impressed by this week's swing. Your blending tool collection is truly magnificent but I like my pink knobs better!!

Diana said...

Thanks for coming by my little blog. I love this WOYWW crowd! And I love that I've finally found where the UK scrappers are in the blog world.
So much pretty craft stuff you've done!
White or cream... hmmm... I love cream walls... I never thought of those "colours" though... thanks!

Twiglet said...

Just whizzed thro your old posts and Wow what lovely things you make. Not being a real cardmaker I rarely know what all the stuff is on your workspace so it is fascinating to see what you get up to with it - thanks!

The Inky Minx said...

I love that your desk always looks like something fab is under construction, mine in comparasion looks so dull :P

The Paper Princess said...

Hi Linda,

I feel like Julia this morning, clicking on all of your pics and trying to get a better glimpse at all of your stuff (smile!)

Are those punches hanging on your wall in the first photo? They are really cool!

Anyway you DID sound hip and trendy today and I appreciate that you are always one of the first visitors on my site every Wed!

Hugs

I had intended to be out of here before now, but just had to stop by and thank you for such a wonderful comment on my blog.

You sure have a lot going on at your desk. Looks like a real beehive of activity to me. I'm not sure I could find anything, though. I bet you know where everything is :>)

Gotta run, but have a fun and snoopy WOYWW. You are right, it IS fun to see what is on everyone's desk.

Pam said...

butlersabroad said...

Wonderful Linda, love all your creativity as usual. Can I say something?? I hate Tilda!! There I said it!!!! She completely creeps me out! Why hasn't she got a proper face, and why do so many people think she's so cute!!!! One of life's little mysteries I suppose!

Hugs
Brenda

Shirley Davis said...

I try so hard to get this TH scene and I do admire the artistry of it but feel I can't quite see me giving someone an altered art card...but would like to try altering objects like frames and boxes, so who knows?

Thanks for popping in on my first day!

voodoo vixen said...

Nicki (LittleTedCards) said...

Wow, so much Tim Holtz stuff - his distressed look scares me a bit, I love it when other people do it but mine always just looks a mess! I've just bought some misters and inks though, so I'll be having a go.
