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!

Wednesday, 1 May 2013


Hello everyone, it's time to flash the crafty stash and show off our desks once more.

Pop over to Julia's Stamping Ground for all the details and to gain access to the portal of nosiness galore!

Okay my desk -

Full on sunshine here this morning, so much so I have to keep the blind down to stop the brightness and allow me to do some colouring.

On my desk are Saturated Canary stamps that I'm practising colouring, I have DT work to do so I often spend time colouring before I do the final one (practise makes perfect and all that!)

I will attempt to visit lots of you this week, my attempts have been rubbish of late but I have been somewhat busy with my boy Baxter. He has settled really well and is definitely one of the family now, having won over my dad who hated the idea of me getting a dog!

Here's Baxter with his bone on the landing, his favourite place!

Take care and enjoy the sunshine if you have it. Me & Baxter will be going up the garden later to enjoy it.
Zo xx

How ever do you colour in that light? I would be so mesmerized by the pattern from the blind I'd just sit and watch the slow changes over time :)

Happy WOYWW!

Baxter looks very happy.

Hiya Zo!! Couldn't work out what you had on the desk until I realised it was the light/shade from the blind. What an idiot!. OK yes you do look very tidy, I like tidy too it's just I always seem to lose something important!! Baxter looks like a real sweetie. Had a lovely walk with a friend this evening, weather has just been so glorious, hope you had a good time in the garden this afternoon. Cindy x

great looking desk! I would so love a dog but my DH says if I get one he goes...tempting but he has been around almost 40 years so I guess I will keep him! I still have loads of pain and tried to up the meds but caused my heart to beat like crazy so staying where I am for now. Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my desk and commenting. I like that! Vickie #41

Mary said...

Hi, I must have been absent from your blog for a bit. I did some catching up this morning. What a sweet boy you've adopted. Lucky Baxter that's for sure and very lucky you. He looks like a very sweet boy! I'm loving looking at your coloring. You are quite the pro....I'm just learning to use my pens and sadly I just haven't had the time lately to work with them. When I find the time, I get lost in coloring and I feel like a little girl. Happy crafting....I'll be back soon.

Daniella said...

Hi Zo! Thank you so much for your sweet words to me and my puppy!! He is such a sweetie and just what my family needed to get them moving again!! I am so glad you got Baxter, and even happier that you are learning from each other! That is the best way to go. We always think we are right and know everything, but then our dogs show us we are not! It is so amazing!!
The picture of him is ADORABLE!!! He looks like such a love!
Enjoy the sunshine!!
