WOYWW and FMS :0)

WOYWW2704

Ha! You were n't expecting this ... now were you! Just call me Smugger than smug or a simple Miss Tidy for short! I know you uber tidy WOYWWers will still have to look away ... but the rest of you messy peeps will think like me ... just fabulously tidy dahling :0)

You see I have a new carry wotsit ... so instead of taking a kerzillion hours to pack my bag when I head off to Olney ... well I can just grab and run. I am of course talking about that black baggy wotsit on my desk ... Marie Osmond made that don't ya know! Don't give me ... I bet she did n't! I bet she only endorsed it and has n't even seen it rubbish ... I just know she designed this one ... sewed it with her own fair hands and probably hummed paper roses at the same time :0)

Beer20 I have also been asked to show some close ups of the Beer mats adorning my wall ... now you regulars will be sick of the sight of them no doubt ... so I have just attached a couple and shrunk them down ... if anyone wants a closer look ... just click on the pictures.Beer22

So ... it is Wednesday ... the world and her mother will be joining in with WOYWW and if you are from another universe and have no idea what WOYWW means then just pop over and see the Matriarch of Mothers ... Mrs Julia and she will tell you what to do.

Can you work out the other acronym ... you know the FMS one ... Can you huh? Can you???

I couldn't guess what it meant, until I saw the comments, what a donut, of course fifty more sleeps, as if I could forget. I adore the mad hatter beer mat, it's so lovely. xx

Dawn said...

BEER MATS! I don't believe it (said in victor meldrew style) I was one who was trying to see these last week I love them!

I thought they were dies and you had got all fancy! but beer mats I only have the square ones bought from a craft shop I might add lol as I do not go in pubs unless there is a very nice resurant attached lol and I don't think they would be too happy if I took all the beer mats off the table any other suggestions? lol I think TH lovey sheild would surfice You know Tim the man who you just love to bits and I have to come here to find out his most daring capabilities I so wish I was coming with you too. I can't believe you are going all the way to USA to ranger is this with a work thing? or have you especially just decided to go? ( I am going from crushed olive to forest moss it's just too much) ;0)

I really love them so much I want to see more please.

I love MO Bag And I am no good I don't know what FMS is?

Love n Hugs Dawn xx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm totally impressed with you work space and those beer mats are to DIE FOR. They sure make great decorations. That tote is perfect for travel. And of course, we all know Marie made it with her own hands.

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Have a fun filled WOYWW.

LadyBug said...

Loving the beer mats!!! I think the white rabbit one is my fav ;) I really like your new table tote!!! linkie please????? I can see one of those on my desk :)

Julia Dunnit said...

Yeah, I'm guessing it's Fifty More Sleeps too - but initially I was struck by 'Feel My Smug' - I mean, your desk! Good grief Linda....I feel a bit....strange. As if you are away. The tote is fab..very big tho' - promise you won't dump it on the desk in front of you so no-one can see you or what you're doing, huh? Huh? How else will we be able to copy?

jude said...

Wow your beer mats are stunning as osmeone else mentioned only have the square and round ones but they are just fine and dandy!Love the new Marie Osmond design too!Im sure if you showed her she wouldnt have an clue it was hers...lol
hugs judex

And hey - who are you calling mad for counting my stamps, indeed!! I was just curious, that's all, I'm not going to stop buying more, of course not, that would be silly!

Oh just look at Mrs Organised today!

Your desk looks fab, and the little glimpse of your nether regions (underneath the desk that is hehe is most intriguing. But Linda, where do you put your knees?

Toucan Scraps said...

you've altered those coasters beautifully - I want one.

congrats on the tidy desk, and the carryall looks wonderful.

Twiglet said...

A great blog there and your coasters are really lovely - what a gem of an idea - so well "upcycled"!

Lothian Crafts said...

Your beer mats are amazing I just love them.

Chrissie said...

Do you know all this time I think I've been going around with my eyes shut. I didn't read the name of the designer of the fabby article on using beer mats in Craft Stamper. It was like a lightening bolt when I actually read your name. Didn't quite put two and two together before.
What illustrious circles I move in!
The article was brilliant and I can only apologise for not complimenting you on it sooner!
Your space is wonderful... and very tidy!
Chrissie

Cath said...

I cannot belive they are letting you loose at RU!;)
The foil is all your fault, I saw you do somthing fabby with foil on your blog ages ago, but now I cant remember what it was!

Banu said...

I love visiting your desk - there's always lots to see, and yes your new tote is very nice. Obviously not quite as nice as the pink and black polka dot one I have ordered (he he) but not bad!!

craftytrog said...

Black baggy wotsit thingy looks fab! So, did Donny cast an approving eye on the design? Way too tidy missus - you been on the hunt for new beermat designs or summat?! xx

Dan said...

Um... does it stand for "Fan? Me? Stalker!!" :)

I'm loving your beer mats and am pretty impressed by your tidy space. Can I just say thank goodness I've never heard of WOYWW before because you would NOT want to be looking at my workspace right now!

Sarah said...

Your desk is looking very clean and tidy, but my eye was drawn straight to the wall of beer mats - they look absolutely beautiful - what an amazing piece of art work.

Definitely fabulously tidy - I wonder if it still does today? :-D
