It's Wednesday again!


Not much going on this week really apart from some untidiness around the sofa area, I really need to have a tidy up! There are quite a few sequins everwhere (although you probably can't see them!) as I emptied out some that I got in my car boot sale haul last week. I didn't actually use any, just emptied them out all over! I've had to pull the blinds down on the windows as my desk was getting too hot, don't worry though I always open them to craft so I can see the garden.

I still seem to be struggling to find time to do much crafting at the mo. Managed to finish the 30th Birthday card that was in progress last week (see below). I'm having Monday and Tuesday off work next week to have a bit of a rest so I have to get some crafting done then. It's my Dad's 70th birthday in a couple of weeks so I need to sort out a special card for that and also yet another card for someone at work (leavers card this time)

I'm sharing the conservatory at the moment with two tomato plants (gives you an idea of how warm it is in the conservatory!) Here is a photo of a few that are ripening nicely.

Have a great week!

I think I might get too hot, even in my crafty room with the blind down I have a fan on (Papers go everywhere!!!)I have tommys too, but in the green house, only three, they are lovely to eat rather than bought ones
Have a great WOYWW!

Phree said...

Untidiness? I was thinking how tidy your space all looked.

Angie said...

Sounds as though you are going to be busy with cards. Your plants are doing well ...I have 3 but two have not set any toms and stopped growing???? while the other seems to be trying to make up for them ...I love tomatoes ...wish I could get hold of yellow or orange plants again.

Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts said...

I spy tomatoes! I love home grown tommys!
Like your filing drawers I've just been pricing up some more of the plastic ones I now have about 5 sets!!

Chrissie said...

The temperature can vary so much in conservatories, I can see why you need the blinds at times!
Tomatoes look to be doing really well!

Julia Dunnit said...

Great light shot of your desk. Doyou think it's the heat that generally saps your mojo? Takes ages for our conservatory to cool down in the evening...so I barely use it in the summer. Madness huh!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm totally in awe of your work space. SO much light and so many lovely windows. I'm not sure what a conservatory is, but it seems to double as a green house (grin). Happy WOYWW.

Wipso said...

I love the smell as you come into contact with tomato plants so would love to work with them close. Bet it gets hot in there though.

Serendipity Stamping said...

Your desk looks pretty good, like maybe you just finished a project and not put away yet. Like your storage by the desk. Good thing you liike tomatoes, eh.

Neet said...

Looks so neat and tidy - and organised. Lots of lovely light - hop you have some air con or a fan though as conservatories can be hot.

kelli said...

ooooh I'm jealous-seems you have about 50 million windows!! Hehe happy woyww :D

Hels Sheridan said...
