WOYWW....and a confession..............

Before I show you all my desk I would like to make a confession................I am truly ashamed of myself..............It's my lovely Hubbies birthday today and I went out to the shops and bought (urgh I hear you all gasp!) him his card cos I was totally lacking my mojo and just couldn't think what to put on a card for him.....he doesn't do soppy or cute...so I picked him up a Homer Simpson one!...there now that is off my chest below you will find a pic of my desk this morning!

I have an order for a card for a wee girl who is gonna be six and she loves everything sparkly and pink...hence everything pink out on my desk!

Up on the top right you will see my sneeks from Ikea! Please don't tell I did have my breakfast and lunch in there when I was down on Saturday (got loads of good stuff for my new look cupboard!)..............I use the little pots they have in the restaurant when the girls or myself are glueing and their little stirrers always come in useful too!



Also here is the card now finished that was on my desk last week!



Get yourselves over to Julia's blog and join in the fun!!

Buying cards huh? Oh yes ... hang your head in shame! I do often ... because I do it all the time *LOL*
Great pink cards ... you should have given him one of those ... much more fun to make :0)

Paula Gale said...

i'm the same as Pam - had to have my nose virtually on the screen - well i won't tell them!!!

Nice green card. I bet hubby wasn't bothered either way was he!!! Mine wouldn't be - but my kids demand a handmade card.

Lothian Crafts said...

Aw how terrible admitting to buying your husband a card. Your desk looks very creative.

voodoo vixen said...

Eeeek, you mean you bought a card? LOL I do that all the time!! I have sitting in front of me a bought card for my Mother's birthday next week!! How the heck I am to get it to her in France from Saudi Arabia by the 28th is a mystery... maybe i could blame that volcano...

Helen said...

Whenever I'm at the train station I grab some of those stirrers - they are sooo useful for paint and stuff!

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Lovely card and love what you're working on for the little girl :) My jaw did drop when I read you'd bought a card for OH! Have to admit I've got a few of those wooden stirrers for using in the necks of cloth dolls hehe

I used to save the little plastic vitamin jars and put PVA glue in for the girls (and 24 play school children) Your pink card looks lovely so far...well the image does!!

Hi Jane..a lovely green card! The background paper is great!
I love IKEA but haven't been to one for a couple of years now.I was with a friend shopping in Croydon branch when I discovered I was pregnant with my eldest! Couldn't eat my meatballs coz I felt nauseus so she made me do a test in the toilet!! Hope you are enjoying your Tildas..I started colouring some in today!

LadyBug said...

I'm sure your little friend will love her pink sparkly card :)
thanks for visiting my blog I do miss the pups each time a litter leaves me but this time I'm keeping Bella so it should be easier when the other leave me.

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah yes..are you training your family to 'sneak' stuf for you without the need for you to actually be there? It seems to happen! You know what, I'd buy him a card too - some mojo battles are just not worth the fight!
Your cards are amazing, I am so attracted to the order of your cupboard!

Hazel said...

Loved having a peep at your pink things! You asked on my blog about my clear stacking trays for 12 x 12 papers - I originally got them from Artymiss which has since been taken over by Craft Barn, but I can't see them there now, neither can I find any others - if you find some, I'd love to know because I wouldn't mind some more of them x

Penni said...

Handmade with Love said...

I love the paper you have on your desk and the image and all the pink pens. As for buying your hubby's card when your mojo is gone your mojo is gone and there is no point making something you are not happy with so I say good on you! Tracey x

Linby said...

Can't believe you bought a card for your OH-but as it was a male card i can understand it wouldn't be easy to knock one up quickly (not if you are like most of us and prefer to work with girly things). Love all the pink bits on the desk, that is going to be a lovely card for her.

Your desk is packed with lots of interesting goodies :-D

The card and your project in progress are both lovely.

Cathy said...

loved having a peek at your workdesk - I have not been to Ikea yet ...... I think it might be too dangerous!
thanks for visiting my workdesk
Regards, Cathy

flutterbycrafter said...

I can't believe you bough a card? Shame on you girl, lol, we've all done it though.

Jodene said...

Your workdesk is very neat! I love the idea of re-using those little tubs! and don't feel bad for having had bought a card, I am sure most of us have done it some stage (I know I have).

Twiglet said...

Sometimes you just can't think of an appropriate theme for a bloke - even your own!! Your cards a so lovely - that ruby wedding one is beautiful.

Kate said...

Lovely finished Tilda card.

Cardarian said...

Angie said...

I feel so guilty when ...on some rare occaisions ...I buy a card. I would rather buy than make a rubbish card when Mojo goes on a break.

I haven't been to IKEA for years and I so want to go but I dont drive and it is so difficult and long winded to get there from here. I wonder what you will create for the little girl ...maybe we will see it next week.

butlersabroad said...

If men weren't so bloody hard to make for we wouldn't have to go and buy them something would we!!! So it's all their fault really, not yours! How long until the makeover starts?

Hugs
Brenda

Heather said...

Love to see your desk, thank you. Don't hand your head too long, we all buy cards - sometimes they can be more appropriate (and easy). Hev:)

Shirley Davis said...

Good to see a card that has been finished - it exonerates you re the Homer thing! Not that you need to be, you are both consenting adults...thanks for the visit - seeing each other's spaces is really helping my own mojo! And it's only week one or me!

craftytrog said...

Lol! Sometimes you just need a 'funny' card for someone! Love your cute li'l card Jane! x

Andrea - Wales, UK said...

Ikea accessories...The stirrers in McDonald's are pretty useful too!!!

Diana said...

The card is so cute!

Debra said...

Sometimes it is so hard to get your mojo going when the "item" is important.

Chrissie said...

I see I'm not the only one to wash out and save 'take away' containers. They're really useful aren't they!

Kathy said...

oh you naughty girl! fancy buying his card! I hope you feel better for the confession hehe Men's cards are a nightmare aren't they? I've got 3 nephews and BIL all with birthdays in May and another nephew's in June to do agghhhh

Paula said...

Wow what a great desk and i adore the green card love the image and cant wait to see the pink sparkly card all of my favorites.

Paula xxxx

Sue from Oregon said...

I would much rather make pink and sparkly than a manly card! I don't blame you one bit!

Tracey said...

Better late than never, love your cupboard Jane, am sure my OH would love to put me in the cupboard. Your cards are fab, especially the Ruby Wedding ones.
I frequently buy my OH a card, but managed not to this year.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You sound like me. When I get near a Starbuck's I want their stirrer sticks. I never thought about getting little plastic pots. Since I'm not a card maker, I would have bought the card, too. You sure like pink!! I can see why you bought a card.

Sorry I'm so late getting here. Hope you had a lovely WOYWW.

Gez said...

Ooh your cards are beautiful. I always buy hubby a card! I always find it a struggle to make male cards.
Hope you have a lovely Birthday. Enjoy your goodies. Can't wait to see what you do with your Glimmer Mists so I have become a follower.
Have a FAB day. Gez.xx
