WOYWW 189

Welcome to What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday - week 189. Julia is our gracious host as ever and will welcome you with smiles and - probably - a busy desk!!

I have had a busy week, craftwise and amazingly have blogged about 7 times since you were here last! I finally finished up my original journal and even decorated the cover.  It is still propped on my desk-on-the-floor today, along with my Dylusions one which is seeing some action too! And there's a chunky frame partly decorated too...
I was delighted last week to see that I had won some blog candy from the delightful fellow WOYWWer, Caz, and a huge box of goodies duly arrived - it was so lovingly packed, and there was so much inside; it was like Christmas all over again - look -
Of course I had to spread it all out... A lot of it was carefully packed inside the tissue box cover - ingenious.

So, once again Caz, thank you - and if ever you see that Caz has candy on offer, sign up for it, because you won't be disappointed!

I'm off to hop round some desks now, catch you later!

Congratulations on the win, how great was that. Have been browsing on your blog posts, what a busy week you have had and wonderful results. Am tempted to join in the dictionary challenge as I have a mini one I bought from The Works a while ago - may just tear out the pages and make a tag book.

Thanks for calling in earlier and for your comments - always appreciated.
Have a great week.
