WOYWW?

Hello and Wednesday WOYWW greetings to all! Although I feel I have lost all track of time and the specific days, 'this' time of the week has - yet again - appeared from nowhere and so I suddenly grabbed the camera to document the shabby state of affairs in La-De-Dah Land. So behold, my desk a mid flow and the beginnings of something...left in limbo due to heavy duty nappy runs...
Hubby is in France for a week so my spare time is very itty bitty indeed. Just minutes at the moment it seems. But I have made a deal with myself to still join in with WOYWW and make it the'me' moment of the week. So, it's a fleeting table. Yet I felt a start on something crafty,  however small, was worth it... Starting to gain a bit more mama confidence and adjusting to the skinny, sleepless nights. Kind of. Roll on teacher hubby's summer holiday!
I'm still be showered with luuurve, gifts and kindness and as promised here are the two wonderful, uber-gorgeous bibs from Jozart...don't ya just love them...? THANK YOU! Just so pretty and creative. Ruby will have to brush up on her table manners!
Two fabulous cards from bloggy friends Susan and Sandee! I have received SO many cards and have them all on display on my baby cupboard in the nursery which looks great.

Also an amazing box of girly loveliness from my so very generous DT friend Candy. A million thanks and wowzers!

I was totally overwhelmed and so surprised by the wonderful wardrobe...

Ballet, cats, frills, dots, flowers, bows and rock chick animal print! Ruby is going to be one sassy well-dressed lady!
Just time for another ten minutes of inky escapism - so a tag is the ideal playground and a chance to try out the Summer Distress Inks. Oooooh! You are perky fellas indeed and, one day..., I promise to play with you all day!
Today I t was just a bit of ink & flick stuff which is the Tim theme at COC2 over at Linda's. Dug out some old, closest to hand stamps... and splatted and stamped without a thought!
 PO
"Sugar and spice and all things nice... that's what little girls are made of..." Guilty. I lost all my "I'll never do all that girly stuff" feelings the moment she appeared. Big thanks to everyone for the continuing support and encouragement. Leaving you with a little puff of pink happiness.

Hi Sarah, what a wonderful post! The little girly things are so sweet, loving that leopard skin and Jo's bibs are gorgeous and so are your lovely cards. But the best of all is the pic of Ruby - oh my how beautiful is she. A x - too early for a number!

I was next to Jo as she finished one bib in my car on the way to Stansted and another in Lujubljana airport...so I know how gorgeous they are, and the only thing more beautiful is Ruby -

Ruby is just too adorable, and bring on all the girly stuff, your next one may be a boy and they aren't half as much fun to dress up!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina #50, unless someone removes a link, lol

Hi Sarah. Goed om te lezen dat je WOYWW als een 'me'-moment hebt ingelast. Tijd voor jezelf is nu heel belangrijk. Alhoewel het schattige snoetje van Ruby vraagt om geknuffeld te worden. xFranka

Your desk looks ready for you to come back and pick up where you left off. The bibs and outfits are adorable, and cards are sweet and I LOVE that tag. Oooo, the colors.

Of course, that baby girl is the most precious thing. Crafting and housework will wait, but she will grow up very, very fast, so enjoy every second.

Happy Woyww,

Your baby is so precious! She looks adorable wearing that pink flower headband. How you find time to create and blog with a wee one in the house is amazing. Do you ever sleep?

Love Ruby's headband. I always thought those were the cutest things. All the girly/baby things are just so cute! I can see why you are gushing and embracing all things sugar and spice and girly. The desk is looking good too, despite all the stuff out. It just means you are being creative. I like that you are sneaking in small bits of time when you can. That's key when you are busy.

CathyB said...

Beautiful little girl and beautiful work; I love the creativity. I am just learning to use Distress Inks; it has been quite awhile since I have stamped and things have really changed for the positive. :)
