WOYWW '67'

I know somebody says it every week but this week it's my turn " Where has the Week gone?"

Firstly............. I need to apologise to Elizabeth and Bluebeard for my spelling mistake last week (I wrote Bluebird).......sorry!!

Secondly.........I was lucky enough to get a place on the ArtsyCrafts event with the master himself................. Tim Holtz..........Woo hoo!!!

Thirdly.......Here's my desk......
Thought I'd go for the overhead view as this seems to be the fashion at the moment. This is how I left it last night at 11.30pm so on the messy scale of 1-10, I think I can qualify for a 10!!

For all of you who stopped by last week here's an update on my little cabinet...........

Not sure if its finished yet, any suggestion are more than welcome.


I'm off to work now at 'stupid o'clock', there should be a law against it.......... See you later (I managed every desk last week before Sunday.........hooray! Can I make it 2 weeks in a row - fingers crossed)

A.xx


P.S. If you've arrived here on the off chance and are wondering what's going on hop over to Julia "Queen of the WOWWers" blog to find out what it's all about. Link is on the side of my blog.

Good Morning Andrea, Lovely desk so full of swirls like me last week and lovely butterfly. Very creative, lucky you getting on to the class with TH. Love your cabinet. Big Hugs JO.xxxx

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Bleubeard didn't mind. He said he wanted to attend the party incognito anyway (grin). And congrats on going to see TH. I know you must be thrilled.

I disagree about your desk. It's really NOT a 10, but I would give it a solid 8.5. I think you should let Kate know, because this is definitely not as bad as you think it is. And that coming from a NEAT FREAK. Happy WOYWW

hi Andrea, that cabinet is looking so pretty, It's previous owner would be stunned.
and no, on an untidy scale I'd give your desk a 6 rather than a 10.

I think the cabinet looks perfect. It might look fussy if you add anything else.

Like the overhead view! Looks like you were on the phone frantically ordering more supplies!!!

Ali H said...

Hi Andrea - desk looks a hive of activity - to me neat = nothing crafty happening (well that's my excuse !) - glad you got a ticket too - I thought I'd never make it when the website was so slow on Monday !! Which session are you going to ?

Alicia.R. said...

I love your desk, it is really inspiring to me. Your little cabinet is lovely too. Thanks for sharing and inspiring us all.

Morti said...

The cabinet looks fab, and I'm sorry, but I think your desk only scores a 7 or an 8 - there are others WAY messier than yours today!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

great project, and i have to agree with the others, for you to get a ten, you need to have more layers of stuff and no desk showing!

Kay said...

LOL, I think your desk is only about a 5 at best IMO. The cabinet, on the other hand, is definitely a 10+, its gorgeous!

Michellee said...

Your cabient is totally ADORABLE!!! and how EXCITING to get to spend some time with TH... And I do love the looks at your busy desk... thanks for sharing..
Blessings,
Michellee

nerllybird said...

Lol! Now try Bleubeard - it's going to be one of those mental block words for you, isn't it!

Your cabinet is gorgeous, where did you get it from? And that desk is not a 10, you can see some of the surface! :D Helen S

Serendipity (Christine) said...

Wow love that cabinet :-)

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Hi Andrea - yes, I agree it's a "10"!! Your beautiful altered shelves are well worth the crafty mess though -they are absolutely stunning.
I am soooo envious that you are going to see Sir Tim in action - please ask him if he can visit West Yorkshire next time!!
Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

mckinkle said...

oooh Andrea, you've got the most perfect crafters desk, its full of interest! And there's one thing that really gets me excited when snooping over desks and that is seeing a bit if stash that Ive got too and that is the Hero Arts clear stamps of flowers!

Can I ask what you used to make your own ink applicator smudger thingey! Id love to get one for each colour as they work out so expensive otherwise!

craftimamma said...

Thanks for sharing your lovely 'creative' desk Andrea and that fantabulous little cabinet. I can just imagine your face or at least the expression on it when you discovered such a treasure. Must make the effort to get up earlier for a car boot sale visit. Not been to one in years!

Hugs

Anne said...

The little cabinet is beautiful! Looks finished to me!

Jingle said...

Oh, your cabinet turned out fabulous!!!

Julia Dunnit said...

That cabinet is becoming more and more divine, I have no idea when to say it's finished though, thats a skill I do not own! Your desk looks professional Andrea - looks like the camera they put over the TV demos!

Deb said...

oh wow, your cabinet is amazing, love it, have a great weekend, hugs Debx

madebyKarla said...

Thanks for your lovely comment :) I am feeling better! I Love all the distressing on your desk. The cabinet turned out so beautiful, I love those flowers!

downrightcrafty said...

oh I am still laughing and sorry for the belated return visit, I have to weigh up all the entrants to the messy scale to compare them all at once. Loved the 10/10 idea and laughed my socks off at Elizabeth and Bleubeards clear definition of 8.5/10 now you will just have to see where you actually came

love the birds eye view so much to look at

Hugs Kate xx

Piddawinkle said...

Rachel said...

You've inspired me: next week I'm climbing on a chair and going aerial! Great picture and so much fun stuff going on. As to your fabulous cabinet, maybe some words on the cabinet itself? Probably not. Just ignore me!
