Here is my newly relocated desk and lo and behold she even has stuff made on it! I know, amazing eh? LOL
I have to say it is nice to be back in my scrap room and bale to sit and play, enough of all those boxes and packing and unpacking, it's no fun at all!
So, it is a little concertina envelope tag book thingy... I am sure there is a better name for it, but you get the idea?
With all the tags with mounts for pictures and on the back a little pocket with another smaller tag for journaling or other pictures.
After I made the one with little envelopes I thought I would have a go with making the pockets from cardstock, it makes it a chunkier version and I actually prefer this way.
Concertina pockets with the tags
and mounts for pics and on the back little pockets again for journaling and bits.
Its lovely to be back at WOYWW, so please leave me your number and I will be over to visit lickety split to see what I have been missing for the past few months.
I am putting this out early as I have to go to the dentist... but I will be back later to visit!

I think I am sorted now!

I have managed to unpack the boxes and have found homes for most of it!
It is a smaller room than the last house, and I will have to get the sewing machine out of the cupboard when I want to use it... but at least I can sit and play and find stuff again.
I have to admit that if I don't see any boxes or have to move for some time, it will be a good thing! LOL Now I can spend some time playing and catching up on all the things I have missed in the last few months!
and look what was on my neighbours washing line?  A kookaburra, what a fluffy beauty he was!
I think he is quite young and he didn't seem to phased by me taking photos of him from every available angle.  I thought there might be some living around here as they doing their laughing their heads off bit early every morning and it sounds like it is in my back garden.

Yes, I am surrounded by boxes... the packing is coming along quite nicely and as you can see, I have been busy! LOL

This is some of the scraproom pile... 

and the poor cats are scared they will be left behind by accident and have taken to spending their days in the cage just to make sure they go too! :)

This is the new house... 6 kilometres from the one we are in at the moment.
The view of Brisbane from the deck.

The deck looking back into the lounge.
So we move next Tuesday... wish me a nice smooth relocation and I will be back once I have unpacked all the those boxes and made it look like home!!

T on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth and the lovely Bleubeard for T on Tuesday... with a frothy coffee! I still Treat myself to one of these once a day, even though I am dieting. (see, I got the T in there?) You have to have something nice to look forward to, don't you?  
This is what is outside my rental house here in Brisbane.... yes, our landlord has decided to sell the house so we have been pretty busy finding a new house to live in!!  It is sorted now though, and we move on the 8th April so you can have one guess what I am doing.....
Yes, I am packing... one of my all time favourite pass times.... not!!
and I thought I would finish up with a photo of Pandora
and one of Tom-Tom... don't laugh... but I had to supply photos of them when applying to rent a house.... LOL I have as yet to figure out why they would need to know what they looked like!!

WOYWW 248 OMGosh... is it really?

Well, this is my work desk this Wednesday morning so I am going to join Julia for What Is On Your Work Wednesday, I have been playing with my sewing machine and new toy - an overlocker!!  They had them on special at our local Spotlight and it just ended up in the trolley somehow!!
So I found this lovely fabric with a very Graphic 45 feel about it and decided to update my kneeling stool that I use in front of my scrap desk.
and there was enough material to make an apron to stop ink and paint getting on my clothes
and I trimmed some old cleaning cloth fabric with the heads so now I have this pretty set at my desk.  
and here is my new overlocker with the little mat and thread catcher I made for it,
and matching cover to keep the dust out.
Looking forward to visiting desks, haven't been able to do so for a few months, so have missed loads I am sure.
