It's Wednesday. It's Crackerjack! Oops, wrong day (and much puzzlement to those of you not from the UK and not of a certain age). So it must be What's on Your Workspace Wednesday. For a good snoop at more crafty desks, head on over to the DeskMeister Supreme, Julia at Stamping Ground.
First up, apologies to those of you whose desks I didn't reach last week. The week before I swooped and snooped at everyone's space. Then last week, I had the return of the foul pestilence (bronchitis followed by flu) and retired whimpering to lick my wounds and feel sorry for myself. I reckon I'm on the mend, although I haven't got much voice (so perhaps I should SHOUT here just because I can...that's better).
You can see further evidence of the flu on today's desk. I am now a connoisseur of the various Strepsils flavours (Blackcurrant Extra Strength are the current favourites, followed by Warm). Also in shot is something much more exciting: next year's diary. I have been looking to do some early bookings for next year's craft fairs, and the diary is starting to see some action.
I'm a bit short on creative inspiration this week, so I've been trying to focus on the less exciting stuff like doing my accounts (*yawn*), tidying out my cupboards (*treasures*) and planning some projects.
In matters elven, the Elf Mum has suggested that I consider making the Elf School for sale next year. So I have been thinking about what an Elf School pack could comprise, and how much parents might like to do for themselves with their children. Elf Dad called yesterday and said that the kids were obsessed with the elves, so I'm glad the novelty isn't wearing off.
Today's post brought a gift for the godchildren from the elves. As they are visiting from a country near the land of fire and ice, I thought that they might welcome a volcano to sit near their igloo. The volcano apparently burbles and smokes for a couple of days and then produces a dinosaur. As you do... Let's hope that it keeps them entertained for a while.
This will be off to the House with the Big Climbing Frame soon.
