WOYWW 151 = I didn't think it could get worse, but it did!


I really had good intentions to clean up after the embarresment of last week., but .... I got to my room and these gorgeous Mo Manning images were lying there and they could not wait to be used, so what was I supposed to do? Clean!??? I think not! So here it is, in all its shame, my 'even worse than last week' desk.
If you look closely you will spot some new Maggies I bought from Paola when I went on a play date to her fantastic new house. (we never did do any playing, we were talking too much! LOL maybe next time!) There is also my Making Memories circle cutter. Can't remember the last time I used it, but needed to make a big box with a window for one of DD's famous cakes. There are also some new flowers I got from Wild Orchid Crafts and haven't had time to put away (OK I'll admit it - I did have time, I just wanted to look at them a little longer)
Here is the first of the Mo fairies. How gorgeous are they? I accidentaly printed some of them on glossy photo paper. Did not want to throw it away, the paper is so expensive, so I thought I would give it a try. This is the result and now you can see why I love my Copics so very much. It ended up looking absolutely gorgeous. Not as blended as on the other paper I normally use, but beautiful in its own way. Paper is Basic Grey (I think) and the flowers and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and my stash.I glitterified her wings with some Stickles and then went wild with the Stickles on the flowers too
This is another one of Mo's fairies. Aren't they just beautiful? I did something rather stupid with this one, I coloured her before I found papers to match. With the result that I could not find the right paper anywhere! That is until I walked into Paola's playroom and there it was, the perfect paper, which she gave to me (can you believe it? She is such a generous person. The flatback pearls (in exactly the right shade) are also from Paola and the flowers are from WOC.

While I was shopping for fairies in Mo's store, I came accross this darling image. My grandchildren are besotted with bubbles, so it just reminded me so much of them I could not resist. Paper is from a free paperpad from a magazine and the ribbon is from my stash. I have had those bubble thingies so long, I can't even remember what they are called. LOL See, these things do get used....... eventually!
Have a great day everybody and don't forget to go to Julia at WOYWW to see what everybody else is doing. Sorry about the long post again, I will try to do better, I promise, and thank you so much for all the wonderful comments last week.

  1. Lovely cards. I don't blame you for playing instead of cleaning. i must admit though, that I can't sit down and enjoy my crafting until all the urgent jobs are out of the way. It's my motivation to do housework

  18. OF COURSE we don't expect you to clean when there are new goodies to play with. Or even old goodies. Or ever really. Besides if you make the messiest of messes you'll make us all feel better (about ourselves and you, because a tidy desk is the sign of a sick mind). How do you play with that tablecloth though? For sure I would get it tangled up in my legs and drag it half off, knocking stuff down, when I got up. Love all your paper trays being right there within reach.

  21. Hi Tertia, love your desk because there is so much going on and can't blame you from being distracted from cleaning by Mo Manning. I'm not a fairy person but Mo's would woo me over. I've got a couple of different packs of those bubbles and they are called rainbow drops or dewdrops depending on the source. Hope you have a lovely creative week. Elizabeth x #113

  32. Tidying and cleaning should only ever be encouraged when ours mojos have gone on holiday, otherwise we are wasting precious crafting time. Those stamps are adorable and I love the sparkles that the first one is blowing out. #36

  33. Awesome looking workspace this week. I love the orange it is such a cheerful color. I love color and would die without it. I also love Mo Manning. Her Omma and Ompa sp? are some of my favorite digi's. Have a great week and don't worry about tidying the desk it looks great as is! Vickie #41

  35. Hi Tertia, thanks for leaving a comment with me. Your images are very sweet. I'm not a fairy worker but I am so delighted with the colouring, composition and combining of flowers with the designs. Really lovely and of course, bubbles are enchanting, I agree.
    Best to you,

  36. Hi Tertia, thanks for visiting me. Just noticed your 12x12 paper storage racks, did you pop them in your basket at a craft shop - LOL. Your pink bug is cute. Do you think you'll get your act together and do a tidy this week?

  52. Apologies for the late visit to your desk! My advice is not to bother tidying your desk for WOYWW, my desk was soooo tidy and Blogger wouldn't let me upload the photo!! Needless to say my desk is already messy for this week. Love your cards especially the blue one with the crochet lace and flowers. X
