Organize your Stuff: Week 26 (round 4): WOYWW #120


First off, We love you dearest laptop! Every one of our personalities is doing the happy dance as our laptop has finally emerged from the Best Buy electronic Intensive Care Unit (ICU). PA Me is longing to get lost in your games, and everyone else is going through extreme internet withdrawal. Girl Friday is still sorry for tripping over the cord and dislocating the charging pin from the motherboard. But as we have quoted before “we are not dead yet!...I feel better!...” and now, we can keep up with you all! Yeah!!!!

A double thanks to those who have bared with us and left fabulous comments, when we could not necessarily comment back (darned stupid smart phone oxymoron). We LOVE you!!! As you may have guessed from the title and the calendar, it is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday again… time to snoop around the world at the fabulous goings on and mayhem that constitutes all of our crafty places! For additional desks, please visit Julia at the Stamping Ground as always, and she will show you the way!

Today’s desk had our design team card for Tuesday Trio’s Sketch #85. It also had the less photogenic, but more user friendly A4 version that is going off to Operation Write Home (an awesome site that does a fab job of sending blank cards to deployed troops so that they can write home).

As for the home front, nothing much new to report here. We live, sleep, eat, play and watch American football. Illusive Middle Child had his first away game (with Girl Friday cheerleading of course). Dad and Oldest Child tagged along, and we won handily (this means that Illusive Middle child got nachos from the concession stand). This afternoon, it will be turn about as Oldest Child has his first “varsity” game as an 8th grader, and Illusive Middle Child is the ball boy and Girl Friday tags along.

Even the scrapping has taken a football twist. Layout to be posted Friday!

Happy WOYWW! Glad to be back!

I love that card. The dandelion? Seeds floating are gorgeous and such lovely colours. I zoomed into your desk because it is soooo interesting. Lots of lovely things to see.

I don't know why I love the images of dandelion seeds so much as I spend half my life digging up the real thing from my garden, where they're a real pest. But I think it's the way they float off on the breeze to who knows where - all those possibilities. Happiness is blowing the seeds off a dandelion clock and telling the time - did you do that when you were a kid (and still do now!) ??
Hugs, LLJ xx

Dandelions looks so calming, I love them - and I don't listen to people who say you shouldn't! So elegant. Happy WOYWW!

Fuchsia said...

Ursula said...

Glad to hear you are back in business. I know we don't NEED them, but we sure do love our PC's don't we.

Helen said...

Welcome back, and love your dandelion seeds too...

Nicely done - reminds me of some dandelion tags I must resurrect from deep in a drawer. Have a great week.

Very cute card! Your desk looks fun!

Angie said...

I love what you created ...it is elegant and pretty and so fits the sketch ...I poped over to look at the sketch etc and there are some other great pieces of work.

I take it that you are a Football crazy family lol. Thanks for dropping by my place xx

Shoshi said...

I love your dandelion layout - they are so attractive, aren't they? (in the right place, i.e. on cards and layouts, not in gardens lol!) and you've got a wonderful workdesk that looks very organised! Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. So far my camera still takes photos OK, and I can still get them off using the cable, but it's less convenient than using the card reader in the laptop. Also I'd like to be able to change the card! Grrr. I love your "personalities" listed on your blog! What fun. I think I'm a bit like you! I suffer from PA as well, and also CFAS (Chronic Faffing Around Syndrome) but do sometimes manage to do some creative stuff!

Bella said...

Thanks for beating the Blogger and getting your message sent! It can be a royal pain in the you know where... Your desk looks great and I am sure you are extremely happy to have your laptop back. In our house it is eat, dream, sleep sport of any description, keeps me on my toes!

Jennibellie said...

I really like your desk - what is in all those file things at the back? I'm wanting to go rummage. Thanks for sharing and coming to say hi on my blog, hugs jenny

Tracy said...

So happy to see you back :)
Your work desk is so much neater then mine.
As for your laptop. I just did the same thing a couple weekends ago. I tripped on the cord and bent the inside and outside of the plug.
Plus my battery doesn't hold a charge :(
It still works...so far.

Amy said...

I wish my work space was that neat! I love that you participate in Operation Write Home...I plan to send some cards to them soon!

Sherry Edwards said...

Your workdesk looks great - and busy just the way we like it! Thanks for stopping by my workdesk yesterday too :)

Lovely card. Good to hear that you are back in webland and didn't lose anything (my own worst fear!)
Happy WOYWW even though its Friday already.

Hey girlie! It was nice to find a comment from you on my post yesterday! I wasn't aware of your laptop problems but I'm glad you can come online 'full force' again... enjoy!!

Glad you have got your laptop sorted and back to work again. I love all those lovely ink pads on your desk, makes my stash look very meagre.

Liz Miller said...

Oh Amanda, I so pleased to hear your laptop is back running as it should and that you can play along with the fun again.
It sounds like you’ve had a busy week with the games and stuff but it’s great you still found time to make your card for Operation Write Home, what a fab idea that is! It must be very special for the families to receive letter from their loved ones but it’s made all the more special by receiving a beautiful homemade card, so keep up the good work.

Happy Crafting!
Sue
