WOYWW #160 - What a Week!!

Welcome to my week of hell... not boring you except to say mum was taken off to hospital, quite unnecessarily, as I told 'em all  at the time!!! Anyway, back now and just as honery  as ever... But I am trying for a Blue Badge for me and am advised to apply for attendance allowance for me too, to get help for me with mum!!! Complicated eh?? But I shall try it.

Anyway, to why you are here - well I thought she would NEVER get on with it!!! - It's THAT time of the week again and we are running amok through the worlds' desks and work spaces, to see what we are all up to, with the permission of her highness the Julia of Dunnit, here... I visited many of you last week but had insufficient time for commenting, unfortunately... visiting the hospital is a time-consuming pastime, and jolly costly in parking fees!!
 So here is my desk - photos from top to bottom equals right to left across my space. Junkyfied eh??? Untidy and jumbled but I was making a tag for TIO... and I am still able to find stuff - only just though, lady!!! -
 The middle portion is the actual bit I work on... barely big enough for a postage stamp!!! All my purple distress inks are out to fulfil the recipe for the TIO challenge, and also for Simon Says Stamp and Show some distressing... yummyliscious!!!
This far end is where the paper scraps live for a while, the glue gun, heat tool, melting pots, baby wipes, silicone glue etc etc all live at this end, under the paper bits shelf.
And for those of you, including the illustrious Mrs. Dunnit, who wanted to know about the big box and what might be inside... well, nothing much just now. It's what I use to elevate my work for photography, as above. Here I have a single sheet of Bo Bunny Weekend Market paper as a background, but often, I have a whole paper stack, and it fits on the box well...
And finally, here is a close up of the tag I was making ... the crow has the key in his mouth for Silvie's "Don't Fear" recipe challenge... it's another great one this week so why not have a go yourself??? To see the whole tag properly, you can go to the DragonsDream Tag it On blog, or here on my DragonsWeb.

Thanks for popping in again and leaving your lovely, uplifting comments
Love and Light

Frankie, I KNOW exactly what is happening with your Mum as my MIL has been carted off to hospital over 8 times in the past 6 months, almost all of them unnessarily, but hey ho, now we have her in a home for respite ( supposed to be ICT but no they got it wrong again, so no doubt we will see the hospital ward again!! I won't say keep calm, but keep crafting.... love the tag:))
Happy woywwing!

Hi Frankie such a calm vibe with your blog music and then your desk a complete contradiction!! You are about to fall of the edge I fear. Fab work though so it is all working for you. WOYWW Hugs from Helen 89

I'm glad to hear that your mom is OK! I thought maybe that box was a place that you elevated to have some working space! lol Love the messy desk! waving the #49 from the hills of North Carolina :)

Peggy Cain said...

Hope your Mum is ok and don't forget to take some time out for yourself too! After a day out at Morriston Hospital today I know a little how you are feeling!
Lovely tag there and great messy desk!

My mum and dad, never seems to get any help and then Uncle, who is younger and live near Londaon, gets free everything!!! I nice new car every three years and if he wanted to take a bus he wouldn't have to pay...(I think my mum and dad get that ...anyway!! Glad your mum's ok! Bit late, as no internet much yesterday!

Elizabeth said...

Oh dear, you've had a bit of a week ... hope everything is going a bit more smoothly for you now and hope also that the Attendance Allowance thing is sorted out quickly for you ... I used to get it for my daughter when she was a little girl as her mobility was limited - it really helped to pay for taxis to take us to all her hospital appointments! Having seen some of your work up close and personal recently (at LLJs)I can understand why your desk is like it is :) Elizabeth x #17

Morti said...

Wooooo - that's a.....busy.....desk. hehehehe

That tag is something special - I've been over and had a look at the challenge and provided I get the time between now and the next challenge on the 11th, I might just have to join in. Oh yes.
