Good morning to you all, especially all you WOYWW-ers.  I'm twitching this week.  My cup is empty and there is someone else invading my space again.  Miss Bella takes up more and more room each time she comes in here.  However, she has been banned from my studio as of today because she refuses to put any of her stuff away when she has finished with it.  What can I say, she has just turned 4 and, I'm told, is exactly as stubborn as I was at that age, and still am apparently.  Ahem.

Lots of Portobello Road on my side of the desk, making a card for the lovely Deb at Paper Turtle to go in her box of swap goodies that you can just about see to the left there under the stamps.

I'm packing for a crop on Saturday with Artful Angels (if you are around the Winchester / Southampton area and fancy a visit then please do get in touch!)  I'm still working on my Devon album and as I've been using the same selection of things throughout, it means my supplies are pretty much sorted.  I just need to have a tidy up and make sure that all the consumables go back into my little tote bag.

I've become so used to scrapping with Sarah from S J Crafts but she is at another crop this week and I will miss her!  This layout has just gone up at the shop blog where we are talking about the different things that are inspiring us right now.  For me its my Cameo. (This cut file was inspired by this Pin).

Show us yours, now that I've shown you mine, and don't forget to link up with Julia for the bestest desky blog hop there ever was.

Bye for now

  5. Hi Lisa-Jane
    I know that feeling of having to share your crafting space. I share mine with my 19yr old daughter and she never tidies up after herself so it doesn't get any better.
    Loving the pieces you have on show today, enjoy your crop
    Have a great WOYWW today and a fabby week

  6. I think Bella will know how to circumvent the studio ban!! Look at her face..she knows she's cute!! And you, stubborn? Heaven forbid :-). Actually Julia would say that's a case of pot calling the kettle apparently, I roll that way as well. Which is rich coming from her!!!!
    Love the cut out stars btw :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 29 xxxx

  7. Enjoy the crop. I should ban me from my craft room...I never put anything away either! happy WOYWW.

  8. Ahh Mummy how could you ban such a cutie! Mess is ok its the borrowing of stash that could cause issues tee hee. I'd have my eye on that red white and blue if I were Bella! WOYWW Hugs to you from Helen 88

  9. Lovely desk picture this week :) x

  10. Love the star cutting file. Got say I love my silhouette cameo!!! Jules no55

  11. Now your desk always interests me, I always think id like to sit and have a little rummage lol. But I'm thinking that cute little smile actually makes your desk look even prettier x

  12. Yep... I'd be banning Bella, too, the poor dear. Hope you had fun at the crop (I'm posting on Sunday). Love the star project. Very striking with the white outlines! Creative Blessings! Kelly #124
