WOYWW 504: Crafty Company

Welcome back for another instalment of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW), care of the keeper of links Julia, over at The Stamping Ground.  I enjoyed a relaxing day's crafting yesterday as I posted off my latest samples first thing and can afford to take a short break from secret stuff.  For once I can share what I am working on: a tag for the latest Tag Tuesday challenge.
I was just getting started as Eva arrived to keep me company.  Pop back on Friday if you're interested in how it turned out.
I have been enjoying some of these grown up Ladybird Books recently.  Whenever I see one that I haven't got in Aldi, I snap it up.  Obviously I couldn't resist 'The Shed' and the others are an amusing read too.
On the other side of the desk, Eva was getting inky with some new PaperArtsy stamps.  Happy WOYWW everyone.  I will pop in and visit after work or tomorrow morning.  Short and sweet, just as Julia likes it.

Wow, like Eva's desk today - think the brushes caught my eye.
Never seen those books in Aldi, I think I remember a mutual friend buying his other half one or two of them. Don't quote me on that though.
Enjoy the rest of your week - doing things you really want to.
Hugs, Net 1 xx

Good morning Sarah. Can't wait to see your tag! It's cold and very very snowy here so not venturing out today! Stay safe and warm xxx

Happy WOYWW. I love the colourful brushes on your desk. Those Ladybird books always make me chuckle. Haven't been to Aldi for ages (we have a new Lidl in our closest town now, and that is easier for me to get to), so might have a look when we get back from Spain. Ali x #8

Oh I love those Ladybird books - have you seen the Brexit one???? I've given the husband, the brother, the dad (he got the gluten-free one!)
Happy WOYWW :)

I'm glad that your design work is going so well! The tags are looking great and it's always good to see how Eva is getting on too. Those Ladyburd books make me laugh, we used to get quite a few donated in the Oxfam bookshop I used to volunteer in!

I'm in love with Eva's brushes... the colours on the 'hairs'- you could frame them and hang it on the wall! Those books are new to me, never heard of it and I don't know if they have those in Holland. I haven't read a book in ages... I used to read a lot but lately it seems to be a 'summer thing' for me... Happy woyww and a hug from Holland, Marit #18

It must be frustrating to work on your samples and not being able to share them yet! But I'm sure they'll be unveiled in due course! I like al those dusters in the colours of the rainbow! Happy Wednesday! zsuzsa #20

I have never seen adult Ladybird books! I used to use the children's Ladybird books all the time when I was teaching, they were wonderful! Is that a die on your desk? So pretty! Eva looks like she's having a lot of fun too! Have a wonderful week, Lindart #24

HI Sarah, ooh those look like such pretty stencils :) I love seeing the colors on the brushes from Eva too. ( I have not bought any of those double ended ones though, flat storage in my space is at capacity) but, I like how they look laying there in the shot. :) ~Stacy #26

Sarah Brennan said...

Because I altered some settings on blogger to do with comments to see if it cut down on problems with people being able to comment and it got rid of them all.

Love the tag and Eva's desk space. I have only ever seen the covers of the ladybird books - never actually read one - I must do at some point. Thanks for sharing. Have a lovely week, with love and God Bless, Caro x (#30)

I had never heard of adult Ladybird books before. I will keep my eyes peeled for them in future. Glad you have a break from secret stuff. Your samples are lovely. xxx Maggie (Silvercrafter) #28

Hi Sarah, Love the heart stencil. Looking forward to seeing your 'Secret' projects when they aren't secret anymore.

I've not seen those Ladybird books.

Looks like Eva was ready for action.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Happy WOYWW

Your desk looks a lot tidier than mine, made a real mess of it this afternoon. Look forward to seeing your tag. x

Kelly said...

Hi Sarah. Thanks for the visit this morning. I've not heard of those books. Perhaps I should stop in at our Aldi this weekend. You know, like I need another book in my to be read pile! LOL. Please tell Eva I love her brushes. Creative Blessings! Kelly #29

Sorry I’m late! The new Ladybirds are a giggle aren’t they, I have a few originals on a shelf and my two lovelies have snuck in a couple of the new ones for me to find! I love the colour you’ve chosen, so cheerful, and that die is very pretty.
