What's on your Workdesk Wednesday?

Aloha! Well, with all this rain and dismal, grey weather one must do one's best to imagine Hawaii... Both the heating and cosy clothes are back on. Brrrr! Thank goodness the drizzle can't dampen the good ole British patriotic fever. Am I going to boast of our country's ability to throw an uber-fantabulous celebration.? Too darn right I am. Now, that was a party weekend to remember! Methinks even Queen Lizzie was a tad amused...
Tis Wednesday and therefore WOYWW time! A shot of my desk in mid "Hooray, it's just for me" mood. Fanfares galore! All my Design Team projects, blog posts and magazine work up until August are done, done, done! Permission to return to normal society and play granted.
A quick peek at a journal page I'm working on... With just 5 days left until the 40 week baby bump, I think 'Other Plans' is a strong possibility. If I'm still here in two weeks time I will be exposed to the delights of "Stretch and Sweep". Keep Fit for Cleaners I ask? Hmmm, not quite. Ask Wipso...
Less is More is all Red, White and Blue this week, so instead of cleaning up the month's design work after-math, I sneaked in a card. Just love these Artistic Outpost images...
Last week I shared a sneak preview from the new My Mojo Monthly! Here's the full shot of my altered sardine tins... It's a Man Up! challenge theme and it's now in full swing. So if you have rustled up some creations for the gents and fellas - do join in!
And that was my 3 years and a week WOYWW post! I think we have all just about managed to surface from the ATC & asterisk shenanigans. I'm looking forward to seeing the swaps and Julia's suntan...
A huge thank you to everyone for so many wonderful thoughts and wishes, especially as my blog hopping has been pretty skinny due to my big workload. Thank you! I will have to add an i-Pad to the hospital bag list... Have a good week and until the next time. Sarah.

Hi Sarah, I'm still up - just finished my marathon post - and taking the opportunity to visit you. Wow, only 5 days to go - you will probably have had the baby by the time my holiday is over! I'm not sure I like the sound of the 'Stretch and Sweep' thing - hope all goes well for you and that baby will not keep you waiting too long. Elizabeth x (too early for a number)

PS: your card is super - love the 'cheerio' :)

Hope the baby bump is on time. I loved the 3 years and one WOYWW comment. So appropriate.

Your Sardine tins are incredible. I am totally impressed.

Thought I would get here early so I could read every word and enlarge every photo this week.

Loving your card Sarah, very appropriate after all our festivities this weekend. I'm looking forward to getting back in my craft room, although I did love seen Ma-am and family. Glad you are still here, gives you more time to yourself before the bump arrives. Very best wishes as always, Anne x

okienurse said...

WOW awesome projects you have completed. I love the sardine can but I think my favorite is still the shoe! Time is getting short for your trip to the hospital so a packed back including an iPad is probably a good idea. Thanks for sharing and have a great week! Vickie #51

Tertia said...

Love the sardine tin and the card! The journal page is quite something too! Hope all goes well with baby and that the little one is good as gold and lets you craft a little bit.
Happy WOYWW

CraftygasheadZo said...

Clever creations there, love them all. Wow you have been busy getting your workload sorted but then I understand, baby will take over soon! Though I hope you still get to play occasionally while little one sleeps maybe, but then again, I remember sleeping when my boy did! Take care my WOYWW friend. Zo xx 65

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I love that sardine tin - it's amazing. So many tiny little items crammed into a small space, literally packed in like sardines!!
Hope you're keeping well and happy, this babe is going to have an awful lot of Virtual Godmothers, lol!!
Hugs, LLJ ~70 xx

Terrific altered tin and love your LIM card. Take care of yourself, x

butlersabroad said...

Nice to know all the deadlines are out of the way, lets hope the little one plays ball with you! Stretch and sweep sound like fun! I do a yoga exercise called the hip opener, that might help too! Brilliant card and tin, really cool.

Hi Sarah,

I watched the Queen's Concert last night and was impressed in how many people turned out, waving their flags. I wish the USA could rally together like that!

The card is too cute - love the cherrio sentiment. The sardine tin is amazing! Hmm, I don't eat sardines but maybe I should for the tins. Nope, I think I'll stick to collecting my Altoid tins!

Can't wait for the baby to make an appearance. Just think how many aunties from all over the world this one will have! Oh, yes, and there's a few uncles amongst us too!

Hugs,
Kay #114

Barb King said...

Sounds like an exciting week with all the festivities! LOve the Cheerio card. Now that your DT stuff is done, put your feet up for a little while, may be the last bit of quiet you will have for long time! Barb #97

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Caught up, huh?! I am impressed and a wee bit jealous. I would say if it weren't for the last minute I'd never get anything done, but I'm at the past the last minute and even moving into the next week time frame. The desk is looking happily creative and I love the sardine tin! It is rustic and manly and rusty and ultimately very cool. The patriotic card is the bomb too. I dare say, I do think you Brits throw a marvelous party indeed! Aloha!

Tracy said...

Gorgeous sardine tin! Never thought I'd say such a thing. :) Ooooh Baby Bump count down!!! Wish you the best. Happy WOYWW, Warmly, Tracy #93

Shoshi said...

Wow Sarah, what a lovely lot of stuff on your desk this week. I love the tags, the fabby journal page (gorgeous colours...) and as for the steampunk tin, well, that's to drool over!! I was about to chuck out some tins but think I may have some better ideas for them now!

Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. It was lovely resting in front of the telly and watching the whole nation appreciating our beloved Queen, and seeing her really enjoying all the festivities! Have to confess to having a tear in my eye on more than one occasion! Glad you like my art work too - I've just uploaded a post about it so you can see it in more detail than on my WOYWW post.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #89
