When you make a conscious choice to be happy, no one can take it away from you because no one gave it to you: you gave it to yourself.

A quote from April Green's - Bloom For Yourself Journal

Wednesday, 12 June 2013


Cor blimey I am early! Well for me. Keagan is off to Edgbaston today to watch Australia v New Zealand in the ICC Champions Trophy (cricket) on a school trip so we are up early.

So here's my early morning desk - 

So on the working bit of the desk there is a couple of images and a shaped card that I can't share yet!

Now this is definitely turning into a mess which I plan to sort today. Those G45 papers are part of the shaped card creation.

My bin area probably at its tidiest!

So that's it for me, once Keagan has set off I shall return to bed, but I will be back later, coffee in hand, to come visiting. So now pop over the Julia's our wonderfully kind queen of all things desk sharing to link up and join in.

Oh before I go I thought I'd share this photo with you just to confirm just how mad and random I really am. Those of you who have met me will understand I am sure!!

Yep Baxter has his own Bristol Rovers hoodie!

Take care Zo xx

that is a very tidy bin - but watch out, it won't be so neat after Kyla has had a rummage.. dx 55

Helen said...

Hope K has a great day at the cricket - fingers crossed for the weather. The desk looks good today ( and I want to rummage in the bin too...) have a good day. Helen 13

I love your desk space - it's never messy, just busy!! Poor doggie, though, does he actually like wearing it? Or is he a REAL fan and dons the hat and scarf too on match days :)
Happy WOYWW and have a wonderful week :)

We never got school trips like that! If Baxter was wearing a Crystal Palace hoodie I would approve more but he does look cute!
Loving the G45 papers. Hugs. Pam#26

Hi Zoe, thanks for calling by. I know, it's a hiding to nothing trying to photograph a hedgie here, did you know just how fast they can run?!

LOVE Baxter's hoodie - why am I not at all surprised?

Hugs, Di xx

No to bad this week, but I miss the lovely colouring in :) You mentioned the doodles initials - I think I recall seeing that but must go on a hunt thru your archives to refresh my memory. DD is on a school trip this week too. Hope the weather holds for the match!
Happy WOYWW!

Hi Zoe, you've just dispelled my image of you as a super tidy crafter - an overflowing bin, I don't believe it!!! Baxter's hoodie is fantastic, and just to be expected given the family that he has been adopted into :) Thanks for popping by earlier. Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #78

Mmm I think I could do with sneaking back under the duvet, couldn't sleep last night, don't you just hate that!!
You have some gorgeous looking papers on your desk there Zoe, can't wait to see what you are doing with them.
Hope Keagan has a great day at the cricket.

Hi Zoe, love Baxters look! Hope the weather stays good for your son, though he'll no doubt love it either way. We're off to Donnington on Friday for Download- hoping for dry weather at least, but got rainproof poncho's just in case, lol. Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #36 xxx

Ooh I do love a bit of Graphic 45. Looking forward to seeing what it turns into :o)I better not tell you than we lived in Somerset my boys supported the other team!

Daniella said...

Very busy spaces this week! Lots of creativity going on!! Baxter is looking very handsome in his new hoodie!!

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Zoe
I love the picture of Baxter in his hoodie.... is he a little bit of a hooligan? I love the fact you have a 'bin area' and it still looks tidy to me

Cardarian said...

Oh you have a busy desk and I just love Baxter's hoodie! A dog has to support his owners team!! Ha, ha really good!!
So happy we chatted at the crop - hope to see you again soon!
Lots of hugs,

I love Graphic 45. Baxter in his hoodie looks great.
Happy Wednesday

Darnell said...

And I agree Baxter should have his own hoodie! How perfectly awesome!! Great, fun post full of eye-candy, Zo! Thank you for coming by the Playhouse! Have a wonderful week! xxoo Darnell #61

Lucy said...

I like the fact that your bin is also full. Is it like that all the time? Mine seems to be. Loving Baxter's top! Have a great week - Lucy #33 x

Julia Dunnit said...

Loving Baxter's hoodie - seen on, it kinda looks quite sensible really! Love the G45 papers and the shape of the card - how intriguing! Hope K had a great day and that you got plenty more rest. said...

Hi Zo love Baxters hoodie and your desk is so tidy. Love Alison xx

KatzElbows said...

It worries me that your bin area is tidier than just about anything in my life! I do think it's mean to be such a tease with the shaped card; I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it. I know your images will look amazing once you've coloured them in.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Love Rachel #48
