What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday? #280

Another week has rolled around and here we are sharing our workspaces again. All the details can be found over at Julia’s place.

Yesterday found me in panic mode at the kitchen table. I had planned the projects and made the samples, ready for class, well in advance. But….the supplies I ordered for the kits, ten days ago, were still en route somewhere between here and the warehouse. This has never happened before. I had to think of something else for today. I came up with a set of notelets and a box to keep them in. Just in the nick of time. Phew! On the plus side, I now have the projects ready for the next class so I’m ahead of the game….as soon as that cardstock turns up.

I snuck in just before midnight last week so tea time is an improvement. I hope to make a few more visits this week. Happy Wednesday everyone.

"Drums fingers impatiently on the table waiting for her SU order to arrive" LOL not really being impatient Fiona and I skyped with Wendy on Monday so told her what was happening

Well done on coming up with a new idea quickly - look forward to seeing when you blog the notelets

Just what you don't want when you've got a workshop coming up. Hope it goes well.

It's awesome that you were able to come up with something at the last minute. I sometimes find it very hard to come up with a project at the last minute. And now you're ahead of the game.

Way to improvise!!! If ordering from SU, I had heard there was a big backlog in orders due to the sale. Bravo on using the envelope punch board. I STILL can't get a proper envelope from it no matter how careful I am. LOL!

Happy Crafting!

A friend asked me this very day to help her with her envelope board. Of course I can't..not being an SU! Demo or actually even having seen one. Ahem. Love the project that you came up with - my word, that's thinking right through to the tips of your fingers!

How frustrating, the stuff not turning up in time, but well done you, changing tack at the last moment and coming up with such a great idea! Nice to see another envelope punch board. They are great, aren't they.

Happy belated WOYWW,
