What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #257

This is the sight that greeted me, at 6am, on the kitchen table.

P1030452

Two sample cards, on a wedding theme, with their respective kits, in the box at the back. All the stamps, punches, inks that will be needed. Now packed in their boxes too. I think I have mentioned before my need to pack on the morning, which fills some of you with horror. If I do it in advance, I drive to class with nagging thoughts, of forgotten items, in my head. I like the inventory process, in the morning, with a cuppa. I’ll share the finished projects later in the week.

What’s on your desk today? Any work in progress? To see what everyone else has on show pop over to Julia’s place. You’ll be very welcome.

Beautiful cards and I tend to pack a week before, could never cope doing it just before I leave.

Mwahahaha...well, if I had to break my fabric embargo, then do it in style, huh??! That grey leaf is a really heavy duty furnishing cotton from B&R Fabrics in Salisbury. It was £17 a metre..ulp!!!!!! But, it is glorious. In the same colourway, they had an elephant design which I was sorely tempted by. But only so much money and so little time....sigh!
Hope your class goes well, that card is very elegant :-)
Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

I wouldn't sleep a wink if I left packing to the next morning :-)
Have a great week.

Lovely cards. I'm a last minute packer too :) x

Sandra said...

Wonder what it is about the need to pack that day. I'm pretty much the same, I've tried to be organised and pack the day before, but that's when I tend to forget things.

My 'desk' is a tip!!!! Love those cards :)

Sian said...

That's an early start!

I'm not sure which I would be. Mmm..maybe a night before girl?

Those cards look gorgeous.
I tend to be a 'pack the night before' person or I panic about not having everything....especially if I suddenly have to leave early to rush DD2 to work because she overslept [as on Tuesday]!

Lovely cards - I just got those same butterfly punches.

Yes, the thought of leaving the packing until morning definitely fills me with horror.

Hope all goes well!

Happy Woyww,

LOL yep I couldn't pack on the day - but I always have a packing list for crops/classes so I can cross everything off as it gets packed and a quick glance at my list in the morning tells me that everything has been packed. Look forward to seeing the cards later in the week x

I try to be organized like that before a class. However, it seems like I still forget something sometimes. Brigita #80

Louise said...

I forget something every time....although i couldn't pack in the morning like you. I love looking (and drooling) over your SU produts x x

scrappystickyinkymess said...

I blame you and your SiPiDi meme for my sidetracking into crochet. Did I say BLAME? I should say THANK. I'm having fun with my temporary diversion....

Happy WOYWW! Getting back to it now my connection has come back :)

I admire your organisation in the morning .... Me? I'd probably pack the night before and then check it all over again in the morning :(. I like the subtle shades on your cards - look forward to seeing the rest.

Chrysalis said...

I'd oversleep, after worrying about it all night!! Good job we're all different, eh?! Hope it goes really well, and looking forward to seeing the final results. Have a great week, Chris # 47 xx

Julia Dunnit said...

It's a preference to pack in the morning..the reason I most often don't is that I don't allow myself enough time and that panic is worse than any bad dream about forgetting stuff! The card I can see looks quite lovely Fiona.

Twiglet said...

Lol - I would be awake all night making lists of "what not to forget". x Jo
