WOYWW

Greetings all WOYWW people. Having been beavering my way across the net, I realised a mass error I had made in my last two offiical posts, in that I had not linked back to the wonderful originator of this crazy and fabulous idea. So if you wish to join in, or just have a look at the other lovely workdesks, make your way over here and have a nosy.

So, not so neat and tidy this week I'm afraid. I'd first like to mention the addition of the shelf on the wall. Not strictly workdesk but it was the first piece of proper DIY done in the new house and my poor OH got a blister for his troubles. I would like to point out though that it is perfectly stable and level so well done him! The large green sheets on the keyboard are the marriage certificates for my great-grandad and great-aunt and I have sucessfully tracked gt gdad on the 1911 census after months of searching! The orange cards are my version of this tag book (yes, I know, its ANOTHER mini book, but I like them!) and its destined to hold pics of last years trip to Eurodisney and will be despatched to my disney partner-in-crime. The yellow 12x12 sheet and the bits on top are the starting of the "Wooden Boat" layout. I was very happy as I managed to print onto some vellum style paper without ripping it or my printer to shreds. So that layout should appear some time at the end of the weekend, as well as a wedding card, a 21st Birthday card and possibly a tarted up family tree.

Enjoy your WOYWW, I shall be soon, armed with a cup o' tea, to have a good look!

Love Elliefantasy
