WOYWW! What a wonderful day!

Good morning everybody! And what a wonderful morning it is. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and I am on holiday! I am slowly starting to unwind after a very hectic year. DH is on holiday too, so not much time to craft, but I am stealing a few minutes here and there. We don't often get time to spend together and I am enjoying having him around.
 If you are one of the few people on the planet that still does not know why I post pictures of my very embarrasing workdesk, go here where all will be revealed by the lovely Julia, keeper of all desks. My space this morning is embarrasing in the extreme, but in my defense, I have to steal time to play whenever I can, so I am not wasting that time cleaning. AND... My DD asked to use one of my tables for her little one's birthday party, so I actually have half the space I normally have.
 For those very observant ones around, I did get new tablecloths, the orange ones were getting a bit faded and did not fit the new and improved calm space. So, the orange curtains had to go too and just look at that beautiful floor. The old, grubby 25yo carpets made way for wooden floors. The are old wine crates, with the printing on. LOVE it!
 I recieved some ATC's from a swap and decided to display them on my birdcage, loving the look and some awesome ATC's there.
Had to show you at least one thing I made on that messy desk. Just got these images and coloured them with my beloved Copics. Is he not just too adorable? Papers are from a freebie in a magazine and the ribbon is from my GinaK kit.
Tiani is safely in America and should be starting treatment this week. They picked up a spot on her brain with the MRI, but gratefully it is only scar tissue and not the tumour starting to grow again. The drs seem very positive that she will be well after the treatment. Thank you for all your positive thoughts and prayers.
Have a great week everybody, I promise to steal some time to visit this week.

  12. Love that flooring, so unique and beautiful. That's not much of a mess, but let's face it, if you had two desks this week then there would be twice the mess!! Lovely card, enjoy your relaxing time with your hubby. Put your feet up and relax, you deserve it.

  14. Lovely card and your workroom looks great - at least you can see the flooring - mine is covered with paper pads, boxes of stamps etc - and we don't finish school until the 21st!

  16. awesome crafting space! Love that floor and I think that you have more card stock then I do! I am going to try and visit a lot of blogs this week and make up for missing last week. I had a great time on my cruise but now I am so feeling the crunch of the holiday season. I plan on getting the tree and decorations up by Friday and leaving them till...?? I hope you have your holiday plans more in control then I do! Have a great week! Vickie #3

  26. ooh, lovely craft space.
    Thanks for visiting my page already

  27. Hi, I'm Lizzie and I've finally made it here from this week's WOYWW! I'm #111 this week and thought it would be fun to visit all those whose number ends in a "1" - so Hello, pleased to meet you Tertia!

    You have a lovely crafting space. It is amazingly tidy, compared to the bomb-site that I call my Studio! I love that flooring - what a fabulous idea, to re-use old wine boxes as a floor.

    Great little card - you're obviously quite an expert with the Copic pens - not a smudge in sight!

    And I see from your Profile, that your favourite book is among my own favourites too - "An Instant in the Wind" is a book I read a number of years ago and have never forgotten. I lost my copy and keep meaning to buy another - I think it's really time I read it again.

    Happy Christmas to you!

  28. I agree, you now have a lovely calming workspace. Thanks for visiting me. BJ#36

  29. Wow I love your room and your cards are so pretty too!

  30. Wow lots of lovely bits on your desk this week, lots of beautiful creations. Love the birdcage with the ATCs on them and your card is gorgeous. Happy Woyww :-) hugs Kerry xx

  31. Wonderful news about Tiani. Hope things continue to go well. I think we are all latge with everything this year. Thank you for your visit this week and hope you have a good week to come. xx Maggie

  32. Just stoppin' for a look/see once more. Love the bird cage with ATCs.
    Merry Christmas, Hope it is blessed with joy.
