WOYWW 109 - Two spaces to share today

Good morning Wednesday!  I have 2 spaces to share with you this week

 I finally finished my pirates but I'm not totally happy with them.  I picked up the wrong pen when I was doing the outline and its too thick.  I think I've decided that doing art for other people is too stressful and I'm glad its done and I will be relieved when the little boy has them in his grasp.  If they go on the wall, fine, if not, that's fine too.  Now I can get on with my art journal from Kirsty Wiseman's MIMM class!

And as for my other space.... well let's just say that's a work in progress.  I'm hoping to do an on-line crop with Kirsty this evening so I need to have a bit of a tidy up as I don't have any space at all!

I've got lots of stuff to put away including the layout that B got hold of and ahem.. altered, here. That new stash needs to be put away too which includes my new little brayer - its so cute and it has little feet so you don't put paint on your work surface.

In other news, I started the C25k running program yesterday and I am officially being ultra good with my syns on Slimming World as I'm wasting money and time by doing it half heartedly.  I'm also trying to update my iPod with some tracks that are the right rhythm for me to run to - watch this space to see if I ever make it to the 5k mark!  Today I am feeling sore and stiff from the new release of Body Balance though so I am glad of a day off, aside from the dreaded housework!

But before I start that, I think I'll have a little peruse around some other crafty spaces listed on Julia's blog.

Have fun, bye for now!

    thanks for popping by earlier

  19. Nice looking desk and workspace. Love the pirates. I don't see anything wrong with them and I enlarged them to see what you were talking about being too thick. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #44

  20. The pirates look great amd I don't think the lines are too thick. We are all our own greatest critic. Thanks for sharing now that they are done.
    As for my flower, I think they are fairly easy to make, but a friend tried and thought it was difficult. One thing I would say is you need to concentrate, because the needle is barbed and very sharp. Definitely no small people to be involved in this craft!

  21. The pirates look better every week! Great space to craft though!! Happy Late WOYWW
