WOYWW # 212

It's Wednesday and that means WOYWW which, I'm sure you are dying  to know, stands for .......
'What's On Your Work desk Wednesday'. If you too would like to join in the fun then, take a pic of your work desk and share it with lots of other 'nosey', I mean like minded people. Hop on over to Julia's blog
Stamping-Ground for more info. Hope to see you there.

Hello peeps,
Hope everyone is tickety boo and enjoying  ( if you are lucky enough ) the spells of sunshine that some parts of the country  have been having. Here in Yorkshire we have had some wet, dull and very humid days and nights. I can't seem to cope with the humidity these days, think it's an age thing, I feel really drained and am not sleeping too well, the saying "limp as a wet lettuce" springs to mind. lol
Any way I have managed to be productive this week, even though I managed to nod off sat at my desk, adding a stiff neck and a wet shoulder  ( bet that was a pretty picture... NOT! ) to my woes.
So to the desk, I have taken  pictures to the left, front and right for your perusal lol

Left side
This 'stuff' was on the front of my desk as I had been making a tag and card for a belated Birthday gift for my friend and I had to move it out of the way to take the pic of the tag.


Glitter, glitter everywhere lol, I like how using the lace for the background turned out, will be using that technique again. The technique on the dress form was to use double sided sticky tape a mask and glitter. I didn't have a mask so improvised by sticking the ds sticky tape to the right side of the dress form, used an embossing folder to get the pattern, then used my craft knife to gently cut round each swirl to enable me to add the gold glitter first then peeled off the rest of the backing to add the purple glitter. Way too long and fiddly !! Guess what has risen to the top of my 'neeeed' list? yep a stencil or mask, it's a must for this technique me thinks.

The sentiments are from a great site called Create with tlc,  here  go check it out if your looking for wordart, sentiments, vintage images and freebies.

These two gorgeous teddies are Eden on the left and Dorothy on the right and are my daughters birthday present from her dad, wrapped and little finger spring to mind. lol  Little did we know when we bought her a teddy for her first Christmas it would lead to a passion that grew with her. They are adorable though, Happy soon to be 26th Birthday Katie x

I received another two ATC's

  6. Gorgeous teddies! The dress card and tag are lovely. I don't think I'd have the patience to cut around all the fiddly bits! Have you tried the same technique but using a piece of lace curtain over the double sided stick works really well with glitter. Hugs. Pam#28

  7. Well I reckon you can never have too many teddies... Love the latest atc's, and of course your own gorgeous makes!! Have a great day. Helen 7

  8. What a lot going on on your desk today. Love the teddies and the 2 ATCs you got. The card you made is also stunning and I know all bout how far glitter can get...#55

  9. Wow! That glittery dress-form worked so well! What a clever technique! Beautiful teddies too! Lets hope for some fresher less humid days here in the UK so you can feel perkier! Have a creative WOYWW! Julie Ann #64

  10. You're nicer than me. I am so OVER the huge number of teddies residing here!
    Your lacey glittery work is lovely, very striking and the lace background looks marvellous.

  11. That is a beautiful card, I am sure she will love it. Wow so many teddies

  16. Hi Lottie - its my first visit - what a great stack of storage drawers - and I just love your purple cards - purple is my fave colour - have a great week... Happy WOYWW - Mxx #99

  17. I love what you have done with the dress form, always a favourite of mine, and it looks so lush in the purple and gold. What a lucky daughter, those teddies are seriously gorgeous!! Annette #6

  18. You've got some fantastic storage here, everything so neat and labelled! Beautiful card and tag, I'll pop over and have a look at that free stuff. I love my Fiskars trimmer, works really well, it's a rotary blade and not one of the fixed ones which dull really easily.

  20. Gorgeous cards and worth al that effort! Bravo you! Love your working area.....mines rather sparse in comparison!!!! Teddies are soooo cute! TFS! #70

  21. I don´t know your age but you´re probably around the same buildingyear as I am, as I recognize the ´symptoms´ you describe... horrible feeling indeed! Good for you you still created. Love it too. Happy woyww and a hug from Holland. Marit #91

  22. Hi Lottie
    I am new to WOYWW - reading through all the blogs, I have just stopped at yours as also suffering from the UK humidity (badly) and have a stiff neck too (sat here in my 3rd wheat bag of the day). Love your cards, and those Teddy's are adorable.

  23. Hi Lottie,
    Great organization!! I really like your cards, and your Teddys are so cute and cuddelly looking.
    Krisha #12 late getting around today

  24. Beautiful card, and such a fabulously organized work area, Lottie!

    #144 this week with
    a mess and a love apple

  25. Adore your front angle, love purple, especially yummy with gold too.
    Yes my own pics in the CD album.
    A twinchie is just a 2 inch square piece of art.
    The bee is a stamp, inked with distress. A second stamp with archival on acetate and the just wings cut out, folded appropriately and stuck on top with pinflair.
    Thanks for visiting my desk already BJ#46

  26. Wow, that tag turned out rather well. Love the purple with the gold - very regal. Great looking storage on your desk area too.
    Know what you mean about limp lettuce - not sleeping and all that - I lived in Lancashire but on the border of Yorkshire so am a bit of both really - so fully understand how you feel plus the weather!
    Take care - thanks for calling on me earlier - Hugs, Neet 13 xx

  27. Nice to be getting happy mail with ATC's isn't it

    Lovely bears hope your daughter likes them
    Jackie 29

  28. Pretty card. Lucky recipient.
    Weather here in SE Missouri USA has been hot and humid but we're to get a break over the next few days. I hope so. I really need to clean the garden shed. Creative Blessings on your week. ~Kelly #110

  29. That was a fun post, Lottie! Great desk, cards, ATCs, and bears! Oh, those bears! They look so lush on the puter, can only imagine how cuddly they are IRL!! Happy Belated WOYWW!! Thanks for coming to visit and for the birthday wishes!! Have a great week! Darnell #77
