WOYDW

I thought I would be tired last night after watching about 17 hours of QVC's craft day and crafting almost as many hours yesterday, but when I went up to bed at about 1pm last night I couldn't sleep and after tossing and turning (and scratching as my Eczema is bad in this cold weather as my skin is really dry) for about 5 hours I decided to get up at just after 6am and start crafting so I have had quite a nice morning although I feel shattered and plan an early night tonight, but I'm always saying that then I'm still up at well gone midnight.
I'm just sitting here now thinking I should really tidy my desk as I have been playing with a couple of Heidi Swapp stamps and some distress inks amongst other things, you can see I have made a pale blue gingham bunny for an Easter project and coloured a couple of Hanglar images and I have been playing with a new MS punch too and as usual I have put nothing away .....shall I tidy my desk ?? No instead I think I will go put the kettle on and have a nice strong cuppa coffee.
Oh my postman has just been and brought my new CC Designs stamps and some lush new MME papers from Tracy at Dies to die for .
You should go and have a peek at all the new yummy stock Tracy has and she is so helpful and goes out of her way to get the orders to her customers so quickly, Thanks Tracy.
Well I'm gonna do one of Julia's push back jobs on my desk now so I can use my new stash !! lol
Have a fun afternoon and if you feel like sharing your desk , post your photo on your blog and pop over to Julia's blog and leave a link in a comment on on the WOYDW post so we can all come and have a peek at what you and creating

Tracy said...

Another creative desk Susie, like the look of that Bunny. You Naughty girl you need your sleep with not being well. But Qvc was good wasn't it. I was a bit disappointed with the time allowed for Tim to show us what he can do.
Happy crafting

I foresee lots more strong coffee today then :) Aw, poor you with the eczema, strange though I would have thought hot weather was worse, though I understand about your skin being dry in this weather. Love the bunny and the chandelier :)

Hey Susie...my daughter has Eczema and we have tried product after product...the one thing that cures it...Aloe straight off our aloe plant! Hope you can give it a try!
P.S. great work space!

Julia Dunnit said...

I think a push back and a good session of whatever you wanna do is in order for you Susie. Tired - god, I'd be weeping by now! Sorry about the itchies, Mr Dunnit has soemthing dry and problematic too - do you use that horid Calmurid cream? Works but - yuk!
Interesting to see you playing with non-cute stamps....

Anneke said...

oh, what a cute little bunny!
And what I find it always fun to see your work desk;)

Hugs Anneke

I just hate dry skin! My feet are all cracked, and sore.

Stressed Stamper said...

would not dare to do WOYDW shameful mess - but the best people work in a mess I say...My Chilblains are sore with the weather at the moment - Balmosa cream is really good for dry skin but has to be unbroken..bit like deep heat.

Jane said...

I am far too ashamed of my desk to take a pic of it!

My eczema is a nightmare just now too....I am having to go to bed with my hands all creamed up and with cotton gloves on to try and stop myself scratching!

LadyBug said...

I love coming over to visit your blog :) I really need to try using distressing inks and one of those lovely looking blender tools :) thanks for adding our WCC Challenge to your challenge link list.

Susie - I'm soooo glad you haven't had the disasters you had this time last week!!! I love that gingham bunny - he's adorable LOL.

I was the same with watching QVC but caught up on my sleep this morning - I don't think it'll be a late one tonight either...

Hugs

Great desk this week, love all the stuff on it. Sorry to hear about your eczema, I used to get it on my face as a teenager, it's no fun.

Jo said...

Your desk is STILL tidier than mine, even when you're in the middle of stuff!

Hope your eczema is less troublesome; it's another good reason that we need to start spring now!

Love and hugs.

Carmen said...

Hi Susie :) Sorry about my blog today, all links sorted. Have stuck with a white background for now till I find a nice 3 column one I like.

That stamp looks yummy I have to say, completely missed the craft day - totally frgot. Slap my wrists!

Feel for you with your excema - think I might have it on my elbows. They are driving me mad lately keep smothering them in moisturiser but no help whatsoever.

Pam said...

Love the chandalier it looks fab, as does that punch. Hugs Pam x

Loz (Aus) said...

I really want you desk - fully loaded of course, but when you send it over, make sure your new CC designs stamps are in one of the drawers!!

The Inky Minx said...

I think we share the same work ethic.. start a project.. get side tracked, start another.. and another.. b4 you know it a desk full of things waiting to be made into other things lol

Chrissie said...

Always interesting stuff on your desk Susie. Those suspended shelf thingies are from Lakeland. I think our nearest one is at Chichester, but you can get stuff online.

Linby said...

visited you at lunchtime at work but firewall does not allow access to post - then forgot I hadn't left you a comment - doh! Only bought some glittered paper from QVC!! however, have just made up for it by finding B Line stamps - OMG I love them. Also paid a visit to "to Die for" and will be going back!! Your itching made me want to itch - I get it down the front of my legs sometimes so know what you mean.

Nikki said...

Hey Susie
I'm not sure if it's called push back when you can still see desk
lol
I'd hate to be scratching all nite
Me I just don't sleep enough until that one day where I pretend to catch up and over sleep :P
hugs Nikki

Sheng said...

I have the same problem as you, I have such dry skin in the winter that if I don't lotion up, I'd have dark patches by the summer.

I can't believe you watched QVC for that many hours!!

Sue said...

Hi hun
oh that look quite tidy lol, i only watched a bit of qvc was quite controlled!! not like you!!!! hhehe sue.xx

*JayNy* said...

I've always wanted to try distress ink...but dont have the money to buy them. oh well. but anyway i love ur bunny!

Mandy said...

I love having a nose at your desk and seeing more of your fabby stash each week, no need to tidy putting the kettle on is a much better idea lol
hugs Mandy xx

Biscuitlid said...

ooh I'm intrigued to see what you create with these lovlies out on your desk, can't wait!

Have you tried Aveno cream on your eczema? Tis the only thing that works for me and Zac and we get a super huge tub on prescription now!
