WOYWW? #190

Well, its been a while since my desk looked this- and how much fun I had getting back into some crafting. If you want to see the cards I made, they're in the post below this one. So why am I revelling in an untidy desk? Because its Wednesday (again), and our fantastic hostess, Julia at The Stamping Ground, is hosting yet another snoop/stalk around the worlds desks.
Do join in if you've not seen this before (where HAVE you been?)- it's a sort of visual eavesdropping on your fellow crafters :).
Physio is coming along nicely, and one of my exercises is small, circular movements, to get the shoulder moving. Small circular movements, I thought. Sounds a lot like sponging, to me. So I'm crafting, on the Physiotherapists orders- at least thats what I'm sticking too!  Have a great day everyone, and I'll meet up with you out on the web somewhere.

Annie said...

Hehehe I'm chuckling here about you using your crafting as physio....I did the same when I had my knee replaced....it's surprising hom much bend you can get on a knee when you put your foot behind the legs on your computer chair and spin the chair gently :-)

Ha! what a good excuse to be crafting - physio crafting!!!! I wish there was a way to do that for my knee - maybe I should start foot painting or something!
Lovely busy desk, must be fun in a very organized crafty room! Enjoy!
Lots of hugs,

die amelie said...

Yes, to be honest - I am really scared about the amount of stuff we store in our "creative-playing-room"... ;)

Thanks for your lovely visit today!

Your desk really looks like you enjoyed your crafting time - awesome colour palette!!!

Greetings from Vienna,

How great to have such an enlightened physio, more or less telling you to craft. I can't believe you have a wren nesting in such a strange place. We have not seen any for ages. xx Maggie #20

Nelle said...

Hi Shaz,
I have looked at your previous post and your cards are stunning.
Now you must do what you are told by the physio. They know what you need to do to get well...
Your licence to play, play, play.
First class cards.

April Story said...

First I want to say I'm glad your arm is healing. And if you have to craft for your health - well then that's something you must do. ;-)
Also thank you for stopping by my blog. My kitty was purring at your comment. :-)
And WOW - I LOVE those cards. And speaking of pinterest - I will be pinning your cards to my board because they are GORGEOUS!

I was just about to suggest sponging for therapy then I read on! Super cards.... really stylish!
Take a look on line for your nearest HomeBargain shop they have so many quality items and so cheap. I saw them open their first shop in 1980s and now he's got over 200 countrywide.
