WOYWW. (an untidy desk)

Hello again everybody! Thank you all so much for all your kind comments on my first ever WOYWW last week! What a friendly bunch you all are!
Thank you for looking over my shoulder again this week. Oh what an untidy desk I have! 

I did a blog last week about 'Almonds' and I now want to do a scrapbook page with the photos, so I've printed them out. I have a nice idea for a double page layout. (Watch this space)
 Some more goodies that I bought at Lidls (European supermarket): Some fineliner markerpens, a stamp set and some primary colour marker pens that have tiny stamps on one end (a heart, lips, thumbs up, a star etc). Just some fun things. 
That tag on a string I must really tidy away! It must not get lost as it is my DH's dad's military tag. He died recently at the age of 98 and I plan to use the tag on a scrapbook page (I love heritage stuff).

I've been playing with my new Spellbinder die that makes little roses. Really cute. The Sissix filmstrip is something I bought on Ebay a while ago and forgot about it. I had fallen behind a shelf and I only found it yesterday...

The photos are from 1992 (my wedding), again they are there in preparation of making a page and I've got as far as collecting pretty papers for it. So nothing completed yet I can show you. And we're going to be away the rest of the week so I won't get much done this week.

Never mind. Thanks for looking and I shall look forward to  having a peep at your desks too. 

Bye for now and God bless.



  1. Can't wait to see your next wonder creation!

  2. Wow, youj've got a lot in the pipeline! I love your gorgeous little roses - I've often seen the die for sale but wondered how fiddly the flowers are to make - do you glue them together as your roll them up, or use tape? Hope you have a great week, Diana #42

    1. Thank you for snooping and commenting. The little roses on my desk aren't glued at all. I've just rolled them up very tightly and then loosened them again a bit. The last little bit of the 'roll' is wider than the rest and I fold that under the flower and I will eventually glue it with hot glue.

  3. Your post on almonds was very interesting. I can't imagine having such a large supply but it looks like you know exactly how to use them so nothing is wasted. Lovely papers for your wedding LO.

  4. Ha Lisca... bedankt voor je bezoekje vorige week (en je mag zowel in Ned. als Eng. commentaartjes geven hoor, wat je wilt!) Ik had het inderdaad te druk met (de voorbereidingen voor de) Kunstroute en heb geen kans meer gezien de 'woyww-meiden' te bezoeken... maar gewoonlijk ben ik daar trouw in hoor! Enfin, ik ben hier nu en heb zowel je eerste als deze post gelezen... leuk om weer eens een 'scrapper' te bezoeken (ik stapte jaren terug over op art journaling... ) En de Lidl... jahaaaa, daar graai ik ook nogal eens in die bakken (die stiften zijn echt lekker in't gebruik!) Je kent ook vast de 'Action' wel... ook zo'n favoriet! Happy woyww en veel groeten, Marit #53

  5. Lots of lovely goodies here, including the film strip that got mislaid - nice when you re-discover something. Thanks for sharing your workspace today. Hope you have a great day and a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #45 x

  6. What a special addition to your scrapbook to your FIL service tags. Lots of fun goodies on the desk to break into! I love that flower die!! Winnie #48

  7. Glad you've come back for more! That desk looks like a fun place to work and play. I love Lidl, too - great bargains (when they have them) and usually good quality. I've just been using Cath Kidston type sticky back plastic from there, and it works a dream. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 34

  8. So many goodies there on your desk this week. You are really going to have fun when you get home! Some great photos.
    Glad the addiction is already setting in - you won't be able to keep away - you will soon find your week settling around Wednesday blogging...
    Glad you are so happily settled out in the sun.
    Take care. God bless.

  11. It's been fun snooping around your desk today, lots of goodies to play with. Gosh they look like really old dog tags and what better way to honour your dad. Don't forget to share when you've completed the layout.

    Have a wonderful week crafting

    Oh yes flat Susan belongs to Neet one of our deskers

  14. Hi, Lisca, no worries about a cluttered desk among the WOYWW crowd -- it's a badge of honor because it means you're making stuff! Looks like you've got some fun new things to play with. Happy WOYWW and thanks for your visit! ~ Laura #62

  15. "Untidy desk".... sounds like mine except for lately. Love all the goodies. Looks like you have oodles going on! Thanks for popping by and happy belated WOYWW!

  16. Hi Lisca, thanks for stopping by at mine, I'm a bit late getting round this week but I'm here now Lol! I don't think your desk is untidy just busy, exactly as it should be.
    Have a great weekend and happy crafting, Angela x 44

  17. Welcome to WOYWW Lisca!!! And congratulations for coming back for week #2! Hopefully, we're not all too crazy for you! Ha ha! There's a lot of sweet bloggers that keep coming back week after week! I can't wait to see your Almonds layout! It should be lots of fun! And I hope you have a blast with those Spellbinders dies!! They both look awesome!

    Thank you so much for coming by my blog and for your super sweet comments! I'm all about being frugal too and trying to use and reuse what I already have. I'm disabled and don't have a lot of money to put into scrap things, so I find other ways to get them...sales, contests, etc. I hope you have fun making your own page kits. It's really helped me to see how much stuff I have and need to use! You get enough after a while that you tend to forget some of the older stuff you have, so making the kits really helps me with that! I can't wait to see what you make!

    Okay, I'm off to go snoop around your blog now!!

    Happy (late) WOYWW

  18. thanks for popping over to my place Lisca and for your kind comment.... I have tasted almonds fresh form a tree and even picked walnuts too of my schoolfriend's tree many years ago, and you simply cant compare them to shop bought ones. Well done on the retrieval ..
    ... and aren't we buying things then losing/ forgetting them, happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x #13

  19. Well it looks like you got a warm welcome. Thanks for the visit and your kind words. You are now a desker....enjoy. Carole
