WOYWW 6th October

Its Wednesday... well barely, as its 4.30 a.m. and the only reason I up and about is because the cats decided that they were going to mess about until I got out of bed... the likelihood of either one becoming a pair of furry mittens in the not to distant future is pretty high!! TomTom has taken to wailing... yep, wailing in the early hours of the morning in the hope that if he is really annoying I will let him out to play in the streets!  He started at 3 a.m. and I gave in trying to sleep at 4 a.m. - I don't think he will ever happily adjust to being a house cat but he has little choice in the matter.  So, getting back to my work desk... this is how I left it last night, still working on the book of Pandora which is coming together slowly!  
This is TomTom... just to prove I am not totally awful, he still has all his fur!! LOL
Oh and next to my desk this morning is a bargain I found at Ikea!!  I was in the As Is section where all the stuff that isn't going to be stocked anymore ends up and I spotted it... I was with Odelia and she looked at me a little oddly and kindly pointed out that it was way too big to fit in my kitchen drawers...
and she is correct - its huge!!  But I didn't see a 30" cutlery tray.... all I could see was a brilliant printer's tray for the wall, painted and decorated I think it will look fab! 
If you just happened upon this page and you are wondering what WOYWW is all about, it's the day of the week that we all display what is on our work desks, check out Julia's blog for the details and links to the ever growing list of people who love to nose about each other's work areas!

  1. Oo I love the book you are making, just love those K&Co papers. I have cats, I know what you mean, but mine are older and happy to sleep through the night now! Tom Tom is very handsome and I wish we had those trays in Ikea in the UK! K x thanks for the peak

  2. I always love to visit your blog Annette. You have so much creativity and I receive so much inspiration. *Ü* Love that cutlery tray. I never see things for what they are either! LOL. Too much to do and so little time to do it means my items for altering are piling up! TFS. ~Glen~ #30

  3. Lol! I know just what you mean about the yowling cat! Mine was so conditioned that he would yowl from the doorway and then run down the hall because I'd throw a pillow at him! lol He finally learned I would not let him out while it was still dark out!

  5. That's a great bargain from Ikea, and you're right, it'll make a fantastic printers tray. Methinks once the weather changes in Calgary you might think again about those furry mittens!!

  22. What a fantastic find - a trip to Ikea is called for I think - lol.

    Your cat story reminded me of our cat Sheba who used to do the same thing - make a nuisance of herself until one of us let her out the house in the early hours.

  23. I guess you called him TomTom, because he can always find his way home. unlike some sat-nav's. I'm usually up at four, be that's because I haven't gone to bed yet! This week,no...late showing off my mess, even with the cat poking me in the eye to get up!
    Happy WOYWW

  24. Did you think I wasn't coming? Did you think I'd missed you? I had intended to stop by and visit my "peep" first, then anyone who left a comment, then I got confused, so decided to go through the list instead. You see how well my strategy worked (grin).

    I see a tray for the wall, too. Wish we had an IKEA. And I'm in love with that book spread. Having trouble finishing it? It may be going around, that lack of mojo.

    Glad Tom Tom survived. After all, he's a real sweetie and Bleubeard likes him, too!

  25. Ouch, some early morning for you with the cats, but atleast it means more time to craft. Yay!!!
