What's on your workdesk? Wednesday

Today, I'm away from my usual desk and on retreat with some of my best girl friends in the world and we are having an absolute blast.

These are 4 of the girls, Karen on the left in the white, Sue behind her, Maria on the right in the white dressing gown and Jen and the front, also in her dressing gown.  Laura has gone to bed as she is heavily pregnant and making the most of a peaceful nights sleep.  I am writing this on Tuesday evening and it's nearly 11.30 p.m. just in case you think the girls spend all day in their pjs:)

This is my bit of the table - if you're wondering why my purse is out I am trying to work out the shopping bill.  We have a menu and I have been in charge of ordering and buying the food.
In the centre of the picture is a card I am making for my husband's birthday which is on Sunday.

I have extended my desk to incorporate the radiator, the worktop behind me and the floor!

This the a layout I finished earlier - I'm one of the slower scrappers here.  I've managed 7 layouts and a mini book but Laura for example, has done 22 layouts!

Anyone wondering why I am writing about my desk, pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and you will see what I am talking about and have the opportunity to look at lots of interesting looking craft spaces.

Lovely photo of the girl in the dressing gown at the front, not :D

Yes, it is fun isn't it :)

I must check inside the microwave and see if you have anything in there :) xxx

Laura said...

I'm glad I went to bed and missed the photo shoot! :)

Belinda said...

Isn't time with friends crafting about the best thing in the world? Well wait...hmmm...chocolate is pretty up there too!!

I am off in two weeks for a weekend of crafting with my girlfriends and I like you are a bit slower. Some of my girlfriends crank them out so fast it's crazy.

The layout you made is so amazing.
Thanks for sharing such great photos. Glad to see you had fun.

Love your desk expansion! I do the same, even at work - I need as much space as I need, and even then it's not enough! Hope you and your friends continue to have a fab crafting retreat - what a great idea! Have a fab WOYWW, Deb #100
