WOYWW #235

On my desk this week there is my new, think its for toast but I am going to dry cards or stack them in it when they are finished, its a quite heavy ceramic. Just thought it would be good for keeping them up off my desk. Picked it up at the op shop, bargain.. I still have a few more Christmas cards to make yet but I have just been playing with watercolours the last few days.  I wanted a background to do some pen work on it, some doodling practice.  Its right out there hey. I drew this the other night no flowers in sight just a random flow of lines and colours.  I just find it relaxing and with everything going on its what I need at the moment.. I have been helping children move houses everyone is moving somewhere else within 2 weeks so moving to and fro and lots of cleaning.. With that, I will get a whole room to move into next weekend. So one more week you will see my desk here and then it will be all different.. 
This is a photo of my new cat Misty.She is making herself all at home and has settled in really well. She was watching with interest while we put up the Christmas tree.

 Misty says hi to Eliza and Yoda.
Julia from  WOYWW gets us all together every Wednesday to have a look at desks from all over the world.. Grab a cuppa, I have mine here, and take a browse.. Thanks for taking the time to comment and enjoy the blog hopping around all the desks.

Have a great day
Sandy :)

  10. Hi, sorry I tried to post 3 times yesterday with my iPad and it wouldn't let me or the spelling was wrong, but hey here I am again. Thank you so much for showing us Misty, she is one really pretty cat, a lot like our Tommy with long hair but beautiful regardless and what a lovely home and family she has now. She does look intrigued over the goings on. You really are getting into the journal work and good for you. A new room to boot on the horizon it makes all that cleaning and sorting worth it, especially when you get your own craft room. Good luck with it all I am excited for you. Say hi to Stewart and give Misty a tickle and a cuddle from me.

    Happy WOYWW & Happy Crafting

  13. I love your bright pages, such glorious colours. How fabulous that you get a room all to yourself, I look forward to seeing it next week. I feel your pain with the moving bit, I'm moving mum and dad soon.
    Have a great week and enjoy setting up the new room.

  14. Hi Sandy,

    What a cute little furball! So glad she's settling right in. I still think animals are the best therapy that's out there.

    Your pages look very cool. The design kind of has an art deco feel to me.

    Happy belated WOYWW
    Peace, Kay (12)

  15. Hi Sandy, I'm just about to do the draw for my 2014-Aussie Notecard Swap. Would you make contact and confirm that you still want to participate in 2014.
