It's hump day again and what's on your work desk?
I've got a batch of new Spellbinders for a class I'm running in Aberdeen at the Papeterie on the last Sunday this month.  Better get my thinking cap on!
Today is going to be a day of catching up.  I've got some work to redo as I'm not happy with it and then some orders to crack on with....when I've got all that done I can play.
So here's my tidy desk....not!

Can't wait to open these beauties and play!
Why not pop on over to Julia's fine blog and catch up with many more WOYWW folk....lots of lovely crafty space out there. 
It only remains for me to say thank you so much for popping over today and I'll leave you with a joke my father sent me recently.

It was entertainment night at the Senior
Citizens’ Centre.

Claude the hypnotist) explained, "I'm here
to put you into a trance. I intend to
hypnotise each and every member of this

The excitement was almost electric as
Claude withdrew a beautiful antique watch
from his coat.

"I want each of you to keep your eyes on this antique
watch.  It's a very special watch, been in my family for
six generations!"

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth
while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the
watch ..."

The crowd became mesmerised as the watch swayed
back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface.
A hundred pairs of eyes followed the swaying watch
until suddenly, the chain broke.

It slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the
floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

"SH*T!", yelled the hypnotist.


Claude was never invited back.

I know not in the best of taste but it did make me laugh.  Have a great Wednesday whatever you are up to.  x
