WOYWW? It's Wednesday Again!

No cat on my desk today, at least for the moment, but instead the start of a new layout.  This will be my fifth ever layout, not that I'm counting.  Yes, I'm a newbie scrapper but I'm loving it!  In fact, I've decided that we need to live much more interesting lives just so I have more things to scrap about!

Important things on my desk to note are: my lovely SU marker pens and my ink pad tower (brilliant storage for the crafting corner of a dining room), and my 'cat with fish' mug.  I have a range of cat mugs, I'm just one of them, ha ha!

Happy What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday to everyone and I look forward to noseying at your workspace soon!  It all starts with Julia at The Stamping Ground if you fancy taking part for the first time!


  1. Love your cat mug, I have owl ones myself. Will be good to see how your layout finishes up. Sandy :) #15

  2. That's a super tidy and organised desk! Trace x 9

  3. That's the reason I don't scrap, cos I don't do anything worth scrapping! Your desk is very neat and tidy.... jealous! Helen, 6

  4. Get you scrapping! Well done and welcome to your next slippery slope!! You already have an interesting life, believe me, and if you document the little things, they will be great reminders...scrapping the routines and contents of your handbag aren't as silly as they sound!!

  5. Gosh my life is so boring I definitely wouldn't have anything to scrap about lol..... maybe if we ever get grandchildren that may change.
    Lovely to see your tidy desk.
    Cheers, Elaine #10

  6. Oh ! I'm late in my comments !...

    Hugs from France.

  7. Now that is one very frighteningly tidy and clean desk hunny!! Sxx

  8. Happy scrapbooking , i see your hooked now. happy crafting jill #32

  9. Hi Victoria,
    Thanks for your lovely comment. Your cat is of the black & white gene pool same as Miss Dixie. What a beautiful four-footer!
    Desk is looking well organised, especially impressed with the stamp pad tower.

  11. Lovely desk.. and that layout looks fabulous.. love the containers at the back... Have a happy week, Hugs May x x x#11

  12. Hi Victoria - welcome to scrapbooking!! Your post reminded me of a fab quote I found the other day:

    Birth certificates show when you were born
    Death certificates show when you died
    Scrapbooks show that you really lived. Unknown

    Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 39

  13. I just LOVE your clean and tidy desk. I wanna come and play. xxx

  14. LO looks fab.
    Have a good week,

  15. Hi Victoria, just looked at Helen's comment above, it is so true - keep up the good work. Love your tower for your ink pads very much! Thanks for the visit, Happy WOYWW, Anne x #21

  16. How is your desk soo neat and tidy when you are in the middle of a layout? Mine is in such a mess right now and I daren't show it as Sandra will be highly critical of it!! I too am in the middle of a layout!

  17. Super neat and tidy desk!! Makes me want to come and visit and get all inky and painty on there lol!! Trish #55

  18. Very tidy desk there and what a nice pile of stampin up inks you have there! Thanks for visiting me. Sunshine Girl #1

  19. You're scrapping like a pro, Victoria! BTW, my UFO box is full of UnFinished Objects. It's stamped pieces that either didn't make it on a card or have been salvaged from a card that was tossed for one reason or another. Thanks so much for all your kind comments.

  20. Your desk is neat! Your cat mug is cute, too. Happy stamping.

    and Happy WOWW!


  21. Your desk is so nice and neat today! It's so fun when you are a creative scrapper, because you do think that way! I'll be out and about doing something, and thinking how I can't wait to scrap or smash or blog about it. We just can't help it. Crafty hugs to you!

  22. TIDY! Love your cuppa mug, #102

  23. Yay for scrapbooking!! The more you get into it, the more you'll realize that you don't need anything special to happen in order to build a page. You'll be scrapping your cat, your workspace, your house, your name it!! It gets addicting!

    GREAT kitty mug!!

    Amy E. #14

  24. Love the beginnings of your layout.
    Happy WOYWW!

  25. Beautiful desk! You are set up perfectly for all your fab layouts and cards. You and the hubs will do lots of things over time to scrap about. Now I don't mean fighting, not that kind of scrapping about with each other, knock off any of that!

    Thanks for coming by to visit me earlier. Glad you liked your card! Next time I'll make you a kitty-cat card which will be more apropo!

    Loved your idea, BTW, of inserting Darnellisms in my journals. It's sounds just the ticket! All those lovely inspirational poems and then one or two, "Get off your arse and stop writing in this dumb book and go make your dream happen!" Oh, my. It could be bad.

    Have a great week! Darnell #116 (my age, too!)

  26. Love your crafting space - way to go with no 5!! I like your pen storage canisters, had to enlarge the pic so I could read what's on them *grin*
    Hugs, LLJ #28 xx

  27. I'd have a mad-panic-clean-up-time if I ever was tempted to join are definitely a the nicest way, of course...haaaa!
    It's the looooongest time since I scrapped anything....realised that 3 grandbabies have been born since I last did a bad is that??

  28. I'm sorry my sun isn't your sun, but at least your desk is colourful and creative. I'm not a scrapper, but I love the idea of remembering fleeting moments that seem small but are magical. Have fun and thanks for visiting.

    cheers, rachel #16

  29. Hi Victoria, loving my first WOYWW - and I must say you have a very tidy W there! Not really a scrapper either - it's what my sister-in-law does, and it's mainly via her and being press-ganged into helping out with my mother's 70th birthday album that I've ended up here at all - but I veered almost immediately away from the layouts. I expect I may make my way back round in the end... Right, more nosiness...

  30. A very organised desk, it seems to be a theme this week, not that mine is. You have good ink pad storage too. If you area crafter your life is never going to be boring

  31. Hi Victoria

    A super neat and tidy desk that's for sure!!

    Cool storage!

    Love Jules xx

  32. I can not believe how tidy your desk is, mine has never been that tidy.

  33. Coo, such a neat and tidy workspace - yet so colourful too. I'm late today, belated Happy WOYWW! Di xx #13

  34. That's one tidy organised space there Victoria,
    So happy to hear you're enjoying scrapping, but if you want any more practice (not that you need any) I've got boxes and boxes of material from 23 years of expat life which I'm supposed to be scapping at some stage. :$
    I could do with an extra hand.
    Happy WOYWW! Neesie #20

  35. Hello Victoria

    I am so pleased you liked my card, of course you can case it
    and any more that you like. No problem.

  36. Love your "dip, yummy" tins that are sitting at the back of this lovely tidy desk of yours. Does it ever get untidy?
    Hugs, Neet xx 8

  37. now this is what I call a clean desk! I want to send you a special cat video that I think you will really love but I need your e-mail address .

  38. Ha! I could enter this challenge-only mine would have to be WAMOW.."What a mess on Wednesday" !Wow-you keep your workspace soooo tidy hun ! xx

  39. Your workspace is so lovely and tidy! The layout is looking very nice!

  40. I am so jealous of the tidiness of your desk, how do you do it? What I'd really like to know is where do you keep all of your stamps? That's what I struggle with stamp storage!!
    Any tips gratefully received!
    Kelly xx

  41. Hi Victoria, there are some advantages to being late to WOYWW, especially when your more recent post is spotted ... love the adorable kitten pic in your Rudolph post :) Your layout is looking good and I look forward to seeing it when completed. Hope you have a lovely weekend, Elizabeth x #24

  42. Oh drat where is Socks!!!. Lovely neat desk from a fellow neat freak!. Hugs Clare xxx

  43. Love the mug and your desk is so tidy! Happy scrapping! Xxx
