WOYWW # 214

Hubby will be working from home for awhile, I will have to give up the desk in the corner (What desk???) hahahaha I cant believe how much junk has been dumped on and around it, that I now have to move for him.
Guess who came to visit from CA, USA, none other than 
Glitter Grammy, Mary Macmillan and her BFF Dee Dee. I started following Mary from WOYWW and we communicated and she told me she was coming to Australia not far from where I live so we just had to meet IRL. Unfortunately we only had 3 hours together. Hubby got along well with her son Aaron and had lots to chat about, I think they took over the chatting at the restaurant.
Check out this awesome gift Mary made for me. Then I discovered the book opened out like this lol duh me.
Thank you Mary I will treasure this forever.
Linking up with Julia's Stamping Ground, go check out more desks!!

Corner desk? what corner desk?- I did not see it ;-)!! Fancy having to share you work space.. just hope you don't argue down there in the dungeon :-)
What a wonderful time you must have had, and what a beautiful gift.
Blessings

Took me awhile, but I finally saw the desk. Sharing can be good. After all, it caused you to clean up the massive piles (grin).

Congrats on being #1 from #2.

aw poor hubby, just one desk!?! Mine might have to move into my crafty space too, as he suddenly thinks it'll be a good idea to have another 'guest' bedroom....hmmmm?!? It's why I keep my space messy!! Happy WOYWW!!

Oh dear! Sharing a space. Just wouldn't wiork for me.Kev and I can't even share a kitchen.He's a very easy-going man, but when he has to share a space with me, he gets "bossy".

What a great post. I think that it is awesome you got to get together with a fellow WOYWW'er. I love that Bird Song line she used for your gift, it's one of my favorites. The book she made is beautiful.
I think my hubby would rather walk on hot coals than share a work space with me. Though he is planning to build me a wall unit to organize my mess. I wish you luck in finding your desk. :D Have a great week!! (((HUGS)))

Is this a "find the desk" puzzle. poor hubby is brave. We could never share a room. he is a lots of things in piles time and I am a spread it around type.

What a lovely gift.

I'm sorry what corner desk?! Ha ha - your hubby must be crazy! Sharing a space is always bad..my hubby and I did it once and it was bad vibes for a while...Love the gift you got from Mary, how lovely that you got to meet a WOYWWer from a different area. Happy WOYWW Cx #30

What a lovely book! I think you'll be busy getting that desk cleared - no crafting for a day or two!!

Pyro-jack said...

Sorry you are losing some of your work space! Margaret and I are very blessed each having our own work desk - first time in 41 years of marriage! No more working on the dining table! Hurrah!

Hope hubby finds the desk!

Have a good week,

Hi Bridget. How lovely to meet up like that! And what a beautiful gift - a real treasure. Enjoy.
Have a great week - hope you find your desk for hubby.

How lovely to meet up IRL - even only for three hours - I bet you didn't stop chatting the whole time! I'm lucky that my DH only comes into my workroom to hoover and collect his "ab-cruncher" which is the only thing he's allowed to keep in there! Annei C #68

Julia Dunnit said...

Bridget,if you get any more stuff we're gonna have to stage an intervention!!
Am thrilled skinny that you and Mary and DeeDee got to meet - how exciting!

Mrs.D said...

What a super craft space, I wouldn't let my hubby into my craft space, he would talk too much and tell me to tidy it up. He has his own craft space, it is called a garage.
Love the book you were given, when I get home I will spend time doing something like that, just to vneture out on something different from my normal stuff.
Hope you have a good day,
Chris

Jackie said...

Yes I must admit I did think what desk
I think that's a great Crafting place you have
How hubby isn't going to take over your space and you get it back Jackie 15

Caro said...

I share an office with my hubby...we have his and hers sides of the room and shared book shelves which limits the space I have to accumulate things! I hope clearing your stuff to make space isn't too challenging! Thanks for sharing. Happy WOYWW. Caro x (#71)

StampinCarol said...

My hubby's office is his shop or the kitchen table so my desk is safe from him! LOL! Plus my room is too small for two! What a wonderful opportunity to meet up with new friends! Happy WOYWW!

Gita said...

How fun to get to meet fellow WOYWW'ers IRL. And what a wonderful gift. I remember when you just moved into your new space all nicely organized. Funny how things just start piling up places. :-) Brigita #99

Winnie said...

How fun that you got to meet a friend from this group and a bonus friend too! Love it. This desk hoping makes the world smaller and friendlier to me. Love it. I am sure you will find the desk!! Mary made you such pretty treasures..So awesome. Enjoy the week! Winnie#90

Monique said...

Looks like you had a wonderful time. I had to laugh when I saw the desk your husband will have to work on. You have gathered a lot of stuff there =)
Happy WOYWW and I wish you a wonderful week.

Shaz Brooks said...

Bet you find some amazing forgotten treasures when you start tidying! I know I always do.How fantastic to meet Glittergrammy, and that is an awesome piece of work she gave you. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #51

Tertia said...

One of the reasons I don't like to tidy my room is the fact that it looks so much worse before it gets better. LOL The bonus is that I usually find such cool stuff.
Happy sharing with hubby and happy WOYWW!

~Rasz~ said...

That's really sweet of you to give up the "desk". Are you moving to the kitchen table maybe?
That is so wonderful that you got to meet another WOYWWer from CA! Sounds like you had a nice visit and got a beautiful card to hold the memory! Have a great woyww week. Rasz #111

April Story said...

I am so sorry you have to share your space. But maybe you will find some things you'd forgotten about when you are cleaning up the desk area. :-)

Congrats on the No.1 spot. My hubby often has to use my PC as his is not as fast - I am encouraging him to get a new one himself! I prefer to keep my craft room just for me. Ali x. #86

butlersabroad said...

Just as well hubby's going to use the desk, at least someone will get some use out of it, lol!! How brilliant that you got to meet up with Mary and DeeDee, woyww is truly amazing. Congrats on No1 this week.

Debs said...

Think you need to rent some office space for your husband, or get him a shed ;-)
