WOYWW 739: Busier Than Ever

Welcome to the weekly desk sharing thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground and WOYWW.

My desk shows the delivery of my order straight from the author of our very own Lynnecrafts' hot off the press novel which arrived late last week.  I don't have any other projects to show you as I am busy getting through mountains of samples although I am keeping it to two projects a day.
I have been keeping up with my daily drawing challenge as well although I have now also ordered some ring bound sketch books for next year's daily collage challenge to myself.
This time next week I should be setting off with Eva for the two day Clarity retreat that we are booked on.  I am not entirely sure if I will make it yet as my Dad has been in hospital for the last three weeks and took a turn for the worse last Friday.  He seems to be slowly improving now but I will leave it until the last minute to make a decision.  I will be taking Mum to visit again later today.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.


  1. Firstly I’m going to have to go and seek that book out now that you’ve recommended it.
    Secondly I hope your dad makes a good recovery Sarah and that you can carry on with your plans.
    Take care
    Lynn xx

  2. So sorry to hear about your dad, hope he recovers well now.
    I too have that book of Lynne's but have not read it or even started as I am reading a set of books on my Kindle at the moment. I will save the Silver book for another time. I did enjoy the snippets before it was printed so am looking forward to reading it.
    Love the drawings as always.
    Hugs, Neet 1 xx

  3. Oh your poor Dad, sending him get well wishes and coping vibes to you and your Mum, what a hard time you've been having. I'm a total ring bound book fan..I actively reject diaries and notebooks that aren't now, I like the lay flat. That said, my house diary which sits on the kitchen island is full of rubbish and flyers and tickets and lists, so it won't close flat!!

  4. I’m so sorry to hear your dad isn’t well, I really hope he recovers enough so you can go away with confidence as I know how much you love the Clarity retreats. Keeping everything crossed for you.

  13. Sorry to hear about your dad Sarah, it is such a worry. Hope you manage to get away. Great drawings as usual - I just got rid of my drawing board - do people even use them now? Have a good week, love n hugs Cindyxx #7

  14. Oh I'm sorry to hear of your Dad, hope he improves more soon. Totally intrigued by your Day 208:Simple drawing, made me stop and stare and soak it all in. Slightly ironic for the subject matter that I had to look more closely LOL. Saw GP today and it's just a stubborn viral sore throat and to give it another couple of weeks to clear....Hugs BJ#3

  15. Hope your dad is a bit better and your plans are able to go ahead. Great daily drawings as usual.
