Happy Wednesday!  Its very strange here this Wednesday because of course I usually have the house to myself.  However, it's half term here and we also have Management at home after having a muscle spasm in his back on Monday!  At the time he couldn't even get to the loo but now he can walk slowly up and down the stairs so he should be back to work by Thursday, albeit very gingerly.

The children were desperate to scrap today and who am I to stop them.  I moved us all into the kitchen for a bit more room but as you can see I have ended up perched just on the corner.  Check out Louis's tongue poking into his cheek in concentration!  As I clicked the shutter he asked "I expect I had my tongue out didn't I?"  Management was heard to mutter "well you are your mother's son...."!!
About 2 minutes after this photo was taken there was a big argument over one piece of paper that they both wanted to use and then they both started fussing about not having just the right photograph and I knew it was time to put it all away for another day.  I dunno, these creative types and their fickle moods... ahem...
 You are used to seeing an overhead shot from me so I thought I'd better to keep to the norm even if it's not my normal space.  I'm creating a DT challenge with the gorgeous papers from Crate Paper The Pier from S J Crafts.

Last week I promised Miss Bella that I would show her work on the blog and here she is proudly sharing it.
So what are you up to?  Show us your desk, do, because sharing is caring.  Link up over at Julia's Stamping Ground.

Bye for now


  1. I just love how your daughter is looking at her can see her thinking about it! I miss these days mine are too old now to be found sitting and sticking with mum :(

    Hope your husband starts to feel better soon...those muscle spasms are so painful x x

  2. It's lovely to see the children enjoying scrapping and Bella's layout is really great! I am in love with that sheet of blue paper! x

  3. Ah, the joys of half-term... still, you have proof that they CAN happily craft together :)
    Happy WOYWW!

  15. They are both very serious artists and such creative little bunnies. Great Layout too Bella, you must get your talent from your mum. Have a great week, hope management gets back to work soon you need the peace LOL

    Happy WOYWW

    Thanks for visiting.

  16. Oh I just LOVE the last photo of your little sweetie with her layout! So adorable. :o) I think it's awesome that your kids like to scrap, and I had to laugh when I heard that they fussed over wanting the same paper. So typical of siblings. :o) My Carrie loved to craft with me when she was little but she was an only child and had everything to herself.

  17. I love to see the next generation of crafters having fun, even if they do have the odd spat over papers, Very well done Miss Bella, what a clever little crafter you are. Happy Crafting.

  19. Your children are adorable. It's never too early to start them on crafts, especially since art has been eliminated from (the US's) curricula. Thanks for the Wednesday visit. Happy belated WOYWW from #3.

  20. Didn't Miss B do a fantastic job? Lovely to see them both crafting away, even it meant you were perched on a corner!
