What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #260

Here it is. The one we’ve all been waiting for. The Fifth Anniversary of this weekly global desk tour. There may have been a real life crafty get together too. More on that another day, I know you have places to be.

P1030477

Here’s my little corner of the kitchen table. Not had much of a look in this week. It’s been in almost constant use, between revision sessions, homework and eating. You can just see the lead of my girl’s laptop, in the top left hand corner. Three Science exams coming up, after half term, for her. I was there to keep her company and to do a bit of production line card making.

I usually end up with one or two kits left over after a class, because I’ve cut an extra one ‘just in case’ or somebody has had to cancel at the last minute. I got them out of the box I’ve been collecting them in and made up all the cards. It’s good to have a little stash on hand.

There you go. Short(ish) and sweet and I refrained from adding any links. I know there is lots of visiting to be done today. Off to Julia’s place then, I don’t want to hold you up. It’s down to her we have this madcap hop each week. Thank you Julia.

A very Happy 5th Anniversary to all my fellow deskers xx

You are a great mom. Wish I'd had you when I was working on science and calculus based classes (grin). It was great to see a full view of you at the crop, not just a tiny icon. So glad you had fun. I could tell from all the smiles.

Happy, happy 5th Anniversary from #22.

Christine said...

It was good to meet you on Saturday, and finally put the face to the name properly in person. I certainly had a whale of a time and am now looking forward to next year. Hope the exams go well without too much trauma. xx Maggie #49

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh that's a good idea - I make up an extra kit and then just break it down and put it away...lordy I'm slow!

Helen said...

Did smile at Julia's comment! Was great to meet on Saturday and what a great day we had. Still smiling at that luscious lemon drizzle cake! Helen 7

KatzElbows said...

Julia isn't the only slow one. I've done the exact same thing. I know they say it takes a village, but sometimes it really shouldn't.

Thank you for visiting.

Happy WOYWW,

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

It's always fun to have a peek at what's on your workdesk, Fiona. Love the pink and gray papers together!

voodoo vixen said...

Totally jealous of everyone who went to the crop, so glad you all had a wonderful time. Great idea to have a few kits hanging about, I always did too many when I was teaching but they can come in handy sometimes! Happy 5th WOYWW Anniversary to you, hugs from Annette #3

Nikki C said...

HAPPY WOYWW 5

Dropping by to greet you a very happy 5th WOYWW anniversary! How nice to have your kitchen table multipurpose with space enough to do things together with your daughter. I hope she does well in her exams.
Blessings and hugs,

scrappystickyinkymess said...

It may have seemed I wasn't paying close attention, but I loved your paper-splitting fluffy flowers and one I find my paper crimper I hope to give it a go :) Shame I didn't find time for a proper chat, but it's far too easy to just get wrapped up in the day and find yourself at the end of it with people you missed out :( But it was lovely to at least see you to say HI .
Got totally ambushed yesterday so late to the party
Happy 5 year WOYWW!

Neet said...

Lucky you visiting the crop. The punch looks rather nice - just wondering how it punches.
happy 5th Anniversary for WOYWW - Hugs and Thanks for visiting me earlier - Neet 11 x

Debbie Rock said...

One can never go wrong with butterflies! Or so I thought until I got the new die from Tim Holtz that cuts out millions - ok, hundreds ... ok, ok, quite a few ... of the little beauties all at once but one puff of breath and off they all float! It was really lovely to meet you at the crop but as for wishing "better weather" for us as we got lost in the myriad of footpaths around Burbage ... well, I'm a lover of the rain so the few days away was simply perfect! Thanks for popping by my blog ... it was lovely to have you visit and I look forward to following your blog and seeing more of your fab crafting. HAPPY WOYWW 5TH ANNIVERSARY! Love Debbie #54 xXx

Elizabeth said...

Hello Fiona, belated happy WOYWW - I'm still making my way through the list of links, albeit at a snail's pace :) I keep hearing about the exams coming up how students are feeling the pressure; glad that's all behind me. Good luck to your daughter - hope all the questions are easy ones! Have a good week. Elizabeth x #97

Jo said...

Those butterflies look great in that pink x

glitterandglue said...

Hello Fiona. Sorry to be so late in getting round. Great butterflies - and what a good idea - make up the kits and support daughter in her revision at the same time. Good one!!
Thanks for visiting. John came home on Thursday afternoon - we are getting used to sharing the house!!
Take care.

Kyla said...

Great idea to make up any leftover kits. Loved the flower you were making at the crop too. Though the day went too quickly to let me do a proper catch up with everyone there!
