Organize your Stuff: Week 25 (round 4): WOYWW #119 & Negatives

It is that time again! Time to look at the state of the desks around the globe and the cool and inspiring projects that they have! This week, as always, has been brought to you by Julia and her lovely blog at the Stamping Ground. Pop over to see other desks, and to ooooh and aaawwww!
Here is this week’s desk. It is messy as usual.


For those who visited last week, sorry that we did not make the rounds. The laptop’s charging pin has separated from the motherboard, and is in the Best Buy ICU (Intensive Care Unit). The hope is, that in true Monty Python and the Holy Grail fashion, that it is “not dead yet” and will feel better soon (in about 14 business days). This justifies (to the POW) the reason to always get the warranty that covers act of God/ act of Child. It also confirms to Fabulous Spouse that before our family left Ireland for the United States all those generations ago, that someone must have stepped on a leprechaun by accident and that we are most probably related to the Murphys. Darned you Murphy’s Law!!!

Here is our Design Team entry for this week’s sketch #84 at Tuesday Trio…a baby card. Creative Me had fun, as she was able to break out the embossing gun for the white (as white ink just never shows real well).


...and we made cookies (oatmeal butterscotch)...


As for memorabilia week, the POW is pretty sure that PA Me and the Inner Hoarder arranged the whole broken laptop thing to distract us long enough to pull out the old Jedi mind trick “this is not the memorabilia that you are looking for”, and so we did not go there. *sigh*

As for this week, it is negatives. The POW is still pretty negative over the laptop thing, but we think that Zen Master Wookiemouse meant photo negatives. Luckily, we are digital, and this is the third time around! We store our photos on a terabyte external hard drive, and offsite uploaded to Costco (where we get most of our printing done).

Also, Illusive Middle Child and Girl Friday had their first real football game (American Football). We won 13-0 (thank goodness!!!), and we think that Illusive Middle Child ,#77 and the 2nd string center (ball holder for the offense for my non American football friends) has drank the cool-aide and become a believer and convert for life (Girl Friday had fun too.  She is the top of the pyramid in front).
















Happy WOYWW!

Maybe you should bring the Murphy's some cake to make friends with them and they'll leave you alone. :) Looks like you had fun at the game.

I love that baby - so bright and colourful!! You made me laugh with your Monty Python reference as our freeview digital tv box also 'shuffled off this mortal coil and joined the choirs invisibule' this week after going pffft after a power cut!! :( Please may I have a cookie? I've been a good girl and I've washed my hands..*pleading eyes* LOL xx

Just for a second I thought you had a very shallow cup of coffee on your desk! Translation or not, I don't understand the football lingo, but if it makes #77 happy, Iknow it's a god thing. My 18 year old thinks Cool Aide is for mixing with vodka. Not guilty you honour - I loathe it!

I love your muli-storey cookie cooling rack, and I love the sound of the cookies on it too. After 17 years of being in America I still can't grasp the basics of AF... I mean, why do they stop the play so frequently?? I've always thought I'd like to see whoever wins the Rose Bowl to strip off the body armour and play a good old game of Rugby! See how they like that!

Hugs

yummy looking cookies. I keep saying I am going to make some chocolate chip ones some day soon! Sorry I am so late getting by this week but I wanted to pop by and visit your blog to say hello and to see what you are up to! Didn't have the time to post(except about newest Doswell addition) or craft the past two weeks due to being in Virginia visiting with the son's family to see the newest granddaughter born. Definitely a fun time none the less. Hope you have a great week. Vickie aka okienurse

Happy very belated WOYWW
Wanted to congratulate you (the Irish you) on your great win over Australia in the rugby World Cup. I am officially an anti - Ausie. I support the Springboks (of course) and anybody that plays Australia!
