WOYWW






















Hello to all! Two apologies to make this week. First, sorry to all those who popped on last week to find that I had posted the week before's desk, it wont happen again. And also, so sorry to be repetitive for the third week running with the mini-book, but aside from Thursday I really haven't had any time for any crafting in the last week. This was mainly due to a family wedding and then feeling really rather pants for the last few days. But today all is well, and its amazing the rallying feeling that you can get from WOYWW.

So, onto the desk, which you can see top. Yes its messy, and yes I still haven't finished the mini-book! But at the request of several lovely people, here is the work-in-progress. I thought that I had printed enough pictures and I mounted them all up and stuck them down. But when I put them in the book, it turns out that you really do need 4 pictures per page, so I have had to print off some more. That is the small pile of pics at the front towards the right (by the camera case) And for those that said well done for scrapping and watching tv, well it turns out that I can't. Several times I put tape on the wrong bit whilst getting caught up with watching the Iplayer. This is one mini book where you really do need to pay attention!

The pile of pics at the left side of the keyboard are ones that I need to scrap and have printed so that I don't leave big blank spaces when printing on photo paper. I don't like leaving big white spaces, they annoy me. Hopefully they might make the transition onto a layout this weekend and get posted up Monday. The belt buckle is one that I cut off a very old belt. I am intending to use it as a posh fastener for a cream album I got the other week. But that might not happen for ages yet.

Second pic is of the 12x12 trays that I brought for Mum and I from Storage4Crafts. They are really good, and give the room a slightly more professionally organised look, though nothing that can compete with the rest of the mess.

So there we are. If you have enjoyed this little stroll about my desk, why not head over to Julia's to see her's and everyone elses.

Love Elliefantasy xx

hi ellie thanks for popping over to my desk, I love the two screens on the desk, and those mini books look complicated, I did a book for my sisters 50th last year and it took me nearly the whole year, so avoiding them at the mo, LOL :)

Looks like you have made quite a bit of progress on that book. I was really intrigued by the design and folds. That paper storage looks quite handy. Sorry I'm late getting here, but that seems to be what I say each week when I get to the end of the group.

Funny aren't we - I don't mind white space at all, indeed have to have some on a page! Your desk isn't a mess, jsut a work in progress and that book is really looking good. I'm the same with visual distraction - I use iplayer and listen to plays, comedy and blah...priceless for me.
