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 364 - Notebooks

Brrrgh it's blooming freezing here. But then I bet it is in most places cos it's Winter! Lol

So as I do on most Wedensdays I'm here to share my desk as per the say so of Julia over at The Stamping Ground!

Pop over, have a nose and join in!

So my desk -
 So yes there are pens, lots in fact. There is a pile of girl footy images already coloured waiting to go on notebooks. You can see my wooden desk storage that Julia kindly made for my 40th birthday as presented to me at last May's WOYWW crop. Thought I'd show it so you can see I use it well!
 Window side is bathed in sunshine. I'm working on A4 notebooks for our online shop (Creative Together, link in top right side bar).
One is finished as was left there to dry while the other has just been covered. In the window is my WIP book art and planner plus my Cinch machine that I used to create blank page notebooks. Not everyone likes lined pages!

I've been quiet in blog land this last week as last Friday we travelled up to Newmarket to collect Keagan at 5pm for his only weekend off in 3 months! He was allowed to leave at 5pm Fri but had to be back for 7pm Sun. Myself and my dad shared the driving. I have an automatic car so find driving okay and I don't mind driving anywhere to be honest. Though I've never driven on the M25 around London before so am proud of myself for doing that!

Keagan had a wonderful weekend at home just chilling. It recharged his batteries for the last few weeks left up at The British Racing school, Newmarket. Here's a screenshot pic of him jumping. The horses he rides up there are ex-race horses so are pretty big and fast!! As you can see the horse cleared the jump by quite a bit!

Take care Zo xx

So good to hear you have had your boy back home for the weekend. Even though it was a short one. You must be so proud.
Your desk looks so tidy! At least you can see the wood from the trees (I can't).
Thanks for visiting already,
Have a good week,

Neet said...

Gosh, if I drove around London I would be proud of myself too - well done you!
How lovely to have your son home for a short time, you must be so chuffed with what he is doing. Hope it all works out tickety boo for him.
Hugs and thanks for visiting when I was asleep, Neet 3 xx

Sharon said...

I'm glad you got to see Keagan. Sounds like it's a lot of work but he's enjoying it. I like all your pens. Still waiting to get mine back lol. I have a cinch machine but I have to admit that it's a new purchase and I haven't used it yet.

Have a great week!

So I haven't been woywwing regularly for a while, your new blog layout is great, Zoe!

Okay, like everyone else, I am admittedly eyeing your wall of markers. It's a lovely sight to behold!

How exciting, is he loving school? That sounds like the best school EVER!!

What a fabulous space! Your pens look fabulous all neatly arranged in your beautiful storage unit (what a present!) and that spot by the window is the perfect place for a little crafter-noon sunshine!

Hi Zo, pleased you've had a good week. Sounds as though the winter has finally arrived in the UK. It's pretty cold here too. Thanks for the visit to mine and happy crafty woyww, Angela x 15

RosA said...

I'm always envious of all those gorgeous pens! It may be winter there, but we're sweltering in a heatwave here! (The car said 41 degrees!)
Thanks for dropping by too!
