What's on Your Work Desk...(WOYWW #182)

Well there's late and then there's ridiculous!!!
It's no longer Wednesday and Thursdays nearly done too and here I am posting to WOYWW which stands for What's On Your Work Desk Wednesday! 
If you want to see how it should be done then pop over to Julia at Stamping Ground.
Meanwhile I could tell you about my horrendous week where things not working...
The AC in my car when the temperature reaches 38 degrees celcius today. 
My laptop doing anything it likes as well as just dying when it gets too hot. 
Plus and here's the worst...I lost all yes 'ALL' of my photgraphs that I had on there. 
Now we're talking hundreds of photos over the last few years! 
I really don't want to think too hard about it because if I do I feel physically sick!

I was in the process of transferring them to my hard drive just in case something happened to them...
then WHOOSH...they disappeared! (WAIL) They are nowhere to be found!
https://secure.quebles.com/content/hotmail/emoticons/1511766.gifI'm so confused, upset and angry you wouldn't believe it!
No one dared look at me never mind offer help...in fact everyone just slowly got up and left the room.https://secure.quebles.com/content/hotmail/emoticons/1508622.gif

SO...(deep sign) I'm having to work my way back through my posts to save some of the photos, so at least I have some. 
ANYWAY... here's my desk before all the drama's started. 
Yep there's I'd finally thought Christmassy thoughts but now all that good spirit has gone too.

I'm not sure if I'll manage to visit many desks with this laptop playing silly whatsits! 
But I'll try...enjoy your day whatever you get up to...have fun.

Muffin's indulgence...summers here!

Summer's arrived!!!

Mufftypup would do back flip somersaults for ice-cream!
And as she missed out in the Hollywood movie role in the film 'Seven Psychopaths'....
....some other shuh tzu (not as pretty as Muffy I have to say, but then I'm biased) got the role. 
Maybe she could star in an advertising campaign for ice-cream...?
What do you think?
 I'm not endorsing any particular brand of icecream...she just likes licks them!

Have a great week everyone and I'll be back soon  https://secure.quebles.com/content/hotmail/emoticons/1508618.gif

Artist Play Room....Turkey Day

This weeks theme in the Artist Play Room hosted by the lovely Jenn is Turkey Day!
Now I know I'm late...hey what's new...so I'll start by saying to all my American friends and followers that I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with family and friends.
I had the photo below from my trip to the Melbourne Show but didn't include it in the post due to the quality of the shot. I have to say this was a very cocky, strutting, confident turkey and not in the least bit concerned wandering round the show. In fact he just loved to show off to the cameras and as soon as you pointed a camera anywhere near him he just came straight at you...literally! So much so that it was impossible to focus.
I have to admit it was a little disconcerting having him rush towards you! 
I began to feel guilty about all the turkey's that I've roasted over the years sometimes so dedicated I'd roasted them whilst the outside temperature tipped over 40 degrees celcius!

Another idea came to my mind when I read this weeks theme...and that how like a 'headless chicken'  I appear to be lately...not reaching goals, tasks and ticking my ever growing to-do list.
Gobble Gobble...gobble...seems so appropriate ;D

So remember Jenn you did say we could think outside of the box...well keep that in mind please as you look below. Well it's a bird anyway! LOL
He's my latest design....

 I even managed to produce some cards too....whoohoo...which will appear soon.
Well at least I've started to think about Christmas...only four weeks so I hear! ARGH!!!

Have a great weekend...I'm off to a French Fest so who knows it may be a future post :D
Catch you later!

What's on Your Work Desk....(WOYWW #181)

Terrifyingly yet another week has been and gone! ARHHH!
Yep...it's Wednesday again and time for WOYWW 
(WOYWW stands for what's on your work desk for those of you
 who haven't come across this term before)
 Well that's the idea of Julia over at Stamping Ground so if you want to see more productive desks than mine then pop over and check them out ~ you could visit desks from all over the globe from the comfort of your own chair. 
 I'm sure you'll find lots to inspire you and there's going to be lots of Christmassy ideas and creations! 

I can't believe I'm showing my mess and lack of anything worthy of the word work!  
There is an attempt to get festive if you look close enough?

 But before you go ... check out my friends great Christmas Vodka Cake recipe below....
It's a big hit! https://secure.quebles.com/content/hotmail/emoticons/1511767.gif
