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, 25 June 2014


Well time has crept upon me and it's now afternoon! Not sure where the morning went though I know I slept more than I should have. I failed to set the alarm you see. So woke in a panic at 7.50 am. We usually get up at 7.20 am so it was a huge rush this morning to get Keagan out of the door on time. I know he is nearly 16 but he definitely ticks the teenage box where sleep is involved. We both hate to rush and prefer to sit down and have some brekkie and have a chat before he goes off to school. 

Anyway I digress, desk, Zoe, desk - 
I'm in full on invite making mode so my Ebosser is ready for action. You can see some of the stuff I store under the desk including my birthday cards from May. Still want to read through them and keep some, recycle others, you know how it goes.

So window side is where the action happens I have space to work and there are 3 piles of printed page. All for those invites. There's a poem, RSVP and main invite.

Some of the tools I use and yes on the base of my lamp are the stamped plaques that go on the front of the invites.

Won't be long before I can share the actual invites with you all. The Day versions are complete and are with the bride-to-be I'm now working through the Evening version which is pretty much the same apart from some wording and colour change! 

Right pop over to our desk dashing Queen, Julia's place, to join in, find out or just be nosey!
Take care Zo xx

Ahh...your space looks so busy and happy. I have the handcranked type of embossing machine (the texture botique) and I just love to emboss everything with it! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #50

Oh, I can't chat in the mornings! I'm an antisocial git :-) My family know to steer clear of me until I've had a cuppa, then I'm slightly more communicative :-)
Love your array of pens, btw!

I hate being doesn't often go well for me if I have to rush in the morning! You're working really hard. Hope you're enjoying the experience. I must say that faced with large multiples of the same thing now just makes me...yawn. Mind you, I've been doing enough of that already!!

I hate rushing in the morning too, it's much nicer to have time for a proper cuppa.
You sound busy there with all the invites, good luck with them.

Hi Zoe, looking forward to seeing the finished invites. I know what you mean about rushing first thing in the morning- kind of throws you off for the rest of the day, I find.And oversleeping- believe it or not, working nights means I can still oversleep, hence the visiting today, I didn't wake up till 5.30 on Wednesday! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #35 xx
