Hello lovelies!

Nice to see you here again and I hope that the week is being good to you.

Regular follows will know that I take part in a crafty blogging phenomenon known as "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday" each week.  The lovely Ms Dunnit is our hostess with the mostest (although looking at some of the other participants' desks I reckon there's strong competition for who has 'the mostest' in crafty stash terms!)  If you would like to know more about it then please check out THIS LINK

This is my (appallingly untidy) desk this week.

Oh the shame!!

Can you bear to take a closer look at the debris?!  I got ALLLL of those bliddy buttons out  to use as flower centres, then decided on some fabric covered brads instead.  

I've been working on a Mothers Day card, roughly following an example from one of the recent crafting magazines. 

This was the finished product!  

And yes I did tidy up afterwards!  Two cats and around three hundred loose buttons aren't a particularly good combination!

See you soon! xx


  1. Beautiful Mother's Day card. Love all your buttons too. Thanks for visiting me today. Linda #157

  2. The Mother's Day card is too cute. I love flowers to begin with. I know what you mean about cats and buttons. My cat puts his paw in the jar that holds my buttons and tried to play. LOL April #145

  3. Such a cute card--those brads are just the thing, despite the pile of cat-tempting buttons!

    Thank you for stopping by this woyww (believe me, my actual desk is far more shameful than what you show here!)

  12. So pretty - a very fresh and springlike colour scheme. Won't be hard to clean up in the pod, once everything has a place of it's own to go. x

  13. It looks tidy compared to mine Kim, and all coordinated too!

Working from home

I've taken a precious day of annual leave today.  I've really struggled this week with feeling so yuk and I needed the restorative ...
