WOYWW - 25 August 2010

Welcome again to WOYWW - hosted by Julia -
Pop over and have a look and join in the nosiness!
Last week I couldn't get the linky thing to work but some lovely people gave me some instructions but it seems that my work computer likes to block stuff like this so I can't make it work!!

This week I have taken some photos around my workspace. My desk itself is clear and unused this week but looking at these pictures I am saddened by how messy the "outskirts" of my desk are!!! I need to re-think the area and pretty it up a bit!

On the Periphery (Oooo big word)of the desk I have photos blu-tacked to the wall of:
Family at New Year 2009
A covered bridge in New Hampshire that I took last year
A Cape Cod sunset from last years holiday
A postcard of the Portland Head Light House, Maine
A lake near my house in the snow
There is also:
Slice machine
Heat tool
Boxes of stuff that I just can't get rid of
An unfinished minibook of the family's dressing-up habit
Swapped tags
A couple of Mickey's
A teapot that my daughter made from an old coffee tin
And lots of bits of paper etc ...

I have made a card for my daughter's birthday using stamps bought at Stamperama last week. I just need to add a "15" to the card now.

I also received my photobook from PosterXXL of my holiday pictures. I am so pleased with it! Here's a peek:

And here is one of my favourite photos from the holiday (Spain). Its of part of my mother in laws garden which my daughter happened to be wandering across.

have a great day!

  19. Hi, love your photobook and your MIL garden looks lovely especially with your daughter in it - lovely keepsake for her later. Love your card with the balloons. Thank you for letting me snoop. Hugs

  20. That is one great photobook. Those shelves look sturdy, too. After all, they are holding a lot of stash. The photo of your daughter in the garden is super. Love it. Sorry I'm late getting here. I had a required tutorial to post on Thursday and had trouble getting back to the WOYWW blogs. Have a great weekend.

    Happy creating......sorry I'm a little late!
