Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

WOYWW 158 - a spot of British humour!


Here we are again - that time to show off our crafty spaces to the world & can't remember what the saying is! But you know what I mean - if you don't then I suggest a quick trip to Julia's will sort that out, but be warned it may open a whole new world to you, one that is highly addictive!

Anyway you'll be pleased to know there is actually something on my desk this week, so I won't be putting you off with more pictures of me - 

So the wide view - taking in the newly sorted & tidied windowsill. Had to have a bit of a move around you see!

Close up of what's actually on my desk - toppers & card & CD-ROM ready to make my dad's Father's day cards, and also stuff for making a 5 year old a card too.

Sideways view of desk.

So there you go, that's my lot this week. Right I'm off to make a coffee before I get started visiting you all and attempting to actually make something other than Smash* pages!

Just before I go I'd better share some of my WOYWW anniversary cards that I received - I've already thanked the senders but thought you'd like to see them too - 

I'm thrilled with them all and they are all now on display in my craft room.

SO thanks again, you know who you are!

Take care Zo xx

Wow looking fantastic. Been thinking about the Kanban kit and seeing it again makes me want it more. Took my daughter to london for first time last summer and think it would be fab to use for a book for her.
your desk is very tidy and cant believe how many copics you have, look fab, such a rainbow of colour.
Happy WOYWW.

Diana Taylor said...

Your desk looks great - just how I like mine to look (although it doesn't happen that often!) - clean and de-cluttered with a pile of new goodies ready for the next project.
It looks like the Fathers Day card is going to turn out great - I love the supplies you have for it.
Have a great week

Ooh, fun and tidy desk you have there! I love your anniversary "gifts". Is that flower card hand-drawn? It's quite eye catching. I adore the ATCs and now want an ice cream cone. :)

TeddyBobCrafts said...

Happy WOYWW. Got the faster internet now, so staying up for a while to visit some workspaces. I nearly bought that CD - some great images on it. I have had a bad day today - and annoyingly for no real apparent reason. However, it was a good excuse to watch Ideal World/C&C !! Ali x #84

Li'l Pidge said...

Some nice toppers there and I spy some lovely markers, and quite a few of them! :-)

Bernice said...

Your desk is looking so clean and neat and organized and beautiful this week!! Maybe if I work on cleaning mine for the next few days, it might get close to looking like yours for next week!!

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! And good for you for finding the badge! I didn't know if it would be easy or hard this week!!

Neet said...

Very Jubillesque (is that a new word?) look to your desk today Zoe. Some lovely atc's on there too - look forward to seeing your end product.
Hugs, Neet (like the White Rabbit - late) #59 x

Tertia said...

Such a tidy desk! Love the cards and ATC's you got!

RosC said...

Very tidy desk. The Brits are all the rage with Liz in the news and the Olympics on the way. You have a great collection of Copic pens there.
Thanks for calling at Wildcards. I'm trying the wax paper with die-cutting today - don't mind popping out the bits of paper but when I discover it hasn't cut completely it's such a waste of time. Here's hoping. :-)

My name is Cindy said...

I love that British kit - I have it as well!! I've made a few cards that went down a storm but I really love the stepper one you posted (above) - talk about fully loaded!!

Thanks for popping by to see me.


SueH said...

Sorry to be so late visiting Zoe but the decorating has meant that getting into my craft room has been difficult. Decorating is done now so as soon as everything is put back in its place things will be back to normal…whatever that is!

Nice shot of your desk this week.
I love the toppers that you have there and have just seen the cards you made with them in a later post…..amazing!

A lovely collection of ATC’s too. We definitely have some very talented crafters in our ‘little’ group, don’t we.

Happy Crafting!

Laura said...

Happy very belated WOYWW. The toppers are very cute. It's kind of fun to rearrange stuff once in a while -- puts different things in front of you and they get used more. Hope you're having a good day. ~ Laura #108

Shoshi said...

Great Father's Day project, Zo - bet he loved it! Also, gorgeous cards and ATCs you've recieved - especially love the zentangle - I recognise that one!

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and sorry to hear you've been poorly too. I'm running on adrenalin at the moment (never a good idea for me as there are always Consequences...) but desperately trying to get ready for Saturday's craft show where I am demo-ing all day and also trying to sell some stuff!

Sorry for the delay in replying, but I've been having problems with Blogger not letting me see my comments - it turns out it was a conflict with the new version of Firefox, but it seems to be sorted now, so I'm back again, desperately trying to catch up before Wednesday and the next WOYWW overtakes me!

Happy very belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #15
