WOYWW #214

Good morning and welcome to a scorching Wednesday Workdesk Wander.

I am pleased to say that for the first time, in what seems like forever, we are actually having a summer here in the UK. But as ever we are never satisfied and, frankly, it is just a tad TOO HOT! 

Anyhoo, I'm in a rush today as today is Activities Day at school and we have early starts for Moonshine Major on a 6 mile yomp across the beautiful Cannock Chase, dressed as a Mexican Bandito and Alton Towers theme park for Moonshine Minor.

So without further ado here is what's on my workdesk today...

I'm working on The Craft Barn's Dictionary Challenge today and expect to post the finished page later.

On my desk you can also see these cute little journaling stickers from Clintons Cards, at a pound a pack I couldn't resist (since my laprop was resurrected I seem to have lost my pound sign), they have a great range of dinky journaling bits which are worth checking out if you're in to SMASH style products.

And finally, had to show you my beautiful ATC from Peggy Appleseeds in the Phillipines. Isn't it gorgeous? I'm so pleased Peggy agreed to swap with me. Thanks Peggy!

That's all folks. Have a great day.


  1. What a lovely ATC from Peggy - so beautifully painted! Good luck with finding the link for the Craft Barn Alpha/Dictionary challenge - they may have added it now, but unless I'm mistaken it does not seem to be there at the moment! Anyway, I always enjoy your contributions so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do for Y! Julie Ann #55

  2. Hi there.
    Just popping my head around the door to say hi as I haven't been around for a while.
    Hope you have a great week.

  4. such a wonderfully busy desk! I was lucky enough to receive an ATC from peggy, too - her work is gorgeous, isn't it??
    happy WOYWW and have a fun week :)
    no. 31
    PS keep cool - the sun has abandoned Lincs today - cold and very grey...

  5. What a romp you had then - us parents aren't allowed to get involved with the secondary school's stuff like that at all! I'm penting my "Y" page too. BJ#36

  6. I am with you on the heat! It has been a heat wave here for over a week and I am now over it. I can't wait for fall! Good luck in the challenge! I love using dictionary text. The hubby cringes when I start ripping things out of my old dictionaries. I tell him it is for art! Stay cool! Wnnie#90

  7. Love your "tablecloth" one of my fave designs flowers and lots of swirls... your storage is a nice colour too - my storage is all black or white and I sometimes wish it wasn't - LOL - maybe you can tell its my first visit - wont be the last though on this fab blog hop... have a great week - Happy WOYWW - Mxx #89

  8. Here in the Netherlands the weather is very much the same! So I feel it too! I will check out that brand of smash type goodies! Thanks for sharing! Uniflame - 85

  9. We are burning our butts here in Greece :-)
    Fabulous ATC from Peggy you lucky girl :-D

    Happy WOYWW

  10. Lovely crafty work desk. I like the covering over your desk. I just bought some storage cubes similar to yours. Of course, over time, I'm sure the way I have it set up WILL change. LOL. Brigita #99

  11. LOL, seems I am at home here with my dislike of the heat. Was chatting with my Dad earlier who normally loves the warm weather, he was saying his friend in the States cannot believe we do not have air con here, I said he should have explained we do 'normally' only have to endure this for a week or so. But that is the problem my house is unbareable now, and going to get worse yet:(

  12. We know where your pound sign went, we ate it, sorry! We were hungry.

    Waving hi from the hungry bears @#77

  13. Hi Maisie, Ive been missing a couple of weeks so just popping on to say hello. I like the sweet little origami boat on your desk, are you going to start at the beginning of the book and work your way through? I tried that once and it got too complicated around the half way mark. I am loving the good weather but I must admit I cannot sit in the sun so its a cooler shadey spot for me. Lovely atc from Peggy. Have a great day. Hugs Mo x #60

  14. Just getting back into the groove after being away last week. Great creative space, and the ATC from Peggy is beautiful.

  15. I love your work space it looks so lovely and oraganised. I find that somehow those smash type thingies start to pop up at all sorts of shops here in the netherlands. I'm so taking advantage of this...
    Happy WOYWW and I wish you a wonderful week.
    xx Monique #106

  16. oh dear- you just put Clintons on my list of places to visit! Love that ATC, gorgeous. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #51

  17. Just blogged my craft class and it shows the number stamp "I made", well you said you were intrigued. BJ

  18. Hi Maisie,
    Love that ATC, just seen another one, totally beautiful too

  19. Good looking desk - nice and busy! I haven't started my Y page yet, my dictionary has about 10 words with Y... (and fewer Z for when we get there - on the same page... dilemma!)
    Helen 17

  20. I spot all kinds of intriguing 'stuff' on your desk... I love the yellow 'harmonica-thingie' (to store paper???) and the small file (?) in front of that...what is it? To store stamps? ATCs?? Happy ~ belated ~ woyww and a hug from (a bit cooler today - YAY!) Holland. Marit #91

  21. Love the high shot of your desk, Maisie! Thanks for sharing Peggy's beautiful ATC! Since I'm late, I came in through the "youyou" post and have to tell you how delightful it was to read and how brilliant your tiny origami youyou turned out! Well done!!

    Happy Belated WOYWW and I wish you a wonderful week! Thanks for coming to see me at the Playhouse! Darnell #24

  22. happy WOYWW, Maisie! so glad the ATC made it safely to your home and that you like it!


Thanks for sharing your happy thoughts. Maisie Moonshine x
