WOYWW


I cannot believe the speed at which Wednesdays keep arriving!!  I was sitting and playing with Picasa this morning and made this collage of Tom-Tom.... which means that all those photos in folders still haven't been organised into anything resembling an order of any sort... but he's cute, isn't he?  LOL
So, this is what my desk looks like this morning!  I am in the middle of making an example up for the scrap class on Sunday.  It would be so much easier if I just kept stuff... then I wouldn't have to make it again each time the ladies ask me to teach something!!  This class is in readiness for Mother's Day next month.  I know, we had UK Mother's Day last month but most of the ladies here seem to celebrate the US or South African date and wanted to do something for all their Mum's. 

It will hopefully turn out something like this version... albeit in different colours.

and once opened out is quite cool and spells the word MOTHER.... or any other 6 letter word you would like to choose... SISTER and FATHER and FRIEND work as well!! The big tags are removable and can contain photos and journalling.
We are now counting down the weeks till we leave here and I am trying to get the cats used to being in their carriers for longer periods....  Pandora has adapted well, she thinks its pretty fine that there is a carrier next to my desk and she sleeps quite happily in it for hours...

I'm still working on Tom-Tom.... who actually prefers to be more hands on in the scrap room!!

Hmmmm.... still have a little work to do on his carrier behaviour!!

Here is a clue to our next assignment destination....

This may help..... LOL
So that's all from my workdesk this Wednesday, so pop over to Julia's and see what everyone is up to this lovely spring morning!!

Love that last picture of Tom Tom. Serious cattitude!

The book is amazing, so clever!

Book looks fab and must have taken an age to do. Hugs Pam x

I love the card that expands but I must admit the pancakes with maple syrup did catch my eye ha, ha....
I don't think Tom-Tom will like the box he seems to be more of a free spirit!

There's always something lovely on your desk! If I took part I'd have to spend so long tidying up that I'd never get anything made, LOL

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh my Tom Tom seems to have carrier attitude!! That book project is delicious and how exciting to be posted to Canada - talk about famine or feast in terms of crafting!

Helen said...

I love your desk! TomTom looks very at home.

Rosie said...

Your cats are so sweet - wish mine would come and keep me company! So you're off to Canada next? Bit of a change of climate!

butlersabroad said...

Ooh, Miss Vixen, you're headed over my way!! Michigan is on the border of the US and Canada, although Canada is a huge country. How did you end up with this life? Who is it that keeps sending you places? I'm intrigued. My cousin in law works for the freight side of P&O and got sent all over the word too, including The Middle East and Canada, we visited him when his family lived near Toronto.

Love the word book too, it's beautiful.

Cher~ said...

Hey again. Thank you so much for sharing your ATG stand with me. I have modified it ever so slightly so that it can collapse for travel. I would like to post it on my blog, but give you credit, of course. Please email me cherylswindow@gmail.com and let me know if this is OK (or not) and if you have a link already with your directions so that I can link to your blog. (sorry, couldn't find your email to ask this privately)
