WOYWW #215

 Busy, busy, my desk never stays clean these days. A few projects on the go.  A completed card ready to be photographed and posted on my craft blog 
 Baskets of products ready to go upstairs to write up posting descriptions to go with my projects on my blog
Never showed you this desk for ages, all piled up with paper and stuff.

What a week I've had when everything that could go wrong went wrong. Do not want to wish it on anyone. Found out some not so pleasant news about a close relative overseas. Credit Card got compromised. Car got a flat battery and had to replace it whilst not having a credit card to pay for it, and other stuff that's not printable.
Then I got called in to work 7 days straight, which is a great opportunity to be able to earn extra money, but the shift work hours are very tiring especially when you do a back to back shift with only 10 hours break. Certainly not complaining at all as I love where I work.
Thank goodness for my hobby of crafting to keep me sane, although in the last few days I've just walked into the craft room and out again.

Linking up with Julia's Stamping Ground, go check out more desks!!

Nothing worse than having the credit card have problems and serious ones too, we live in such a diverse world now it is frightening to think what can happen. Oh you poor thing working 7 days straight with only 10 hours break, I do hope people at home are letting you sleep and eat because that really is all you have time for.

Happy crafting if you find a few minutes.

Happy WOYWW Eliza 26

Goodness, Bridget, what a week. Do trust things will come together for you - that all will be soon sorted. Don't worry about the crafting - the time will come!!
Hope this coming week is somewhat easier and less stressful.

Phew! TWTWTW (that was the week that was) and hope it has improved now. Sorry to hear about the relative, hope that has improved.
Lovely desks - you must have a large space to work in and lots of space to leave a project and start another - envious (me).
Keep your chin up - Hugs, Neet 14 xx

Bridget, I'm so sorry to hear about all the things that happened this week! Any one of them would be a challenge to deal with . . . all of them together must have been overwhelming. Hoping that everything that can change for the better will do so and wishing the best for your overseas relative. ~ Laura #101

What a rotten week1 I feel for you with the credit card- its happened to us twice. The second time not only the credit card, they emptied the bank account too. Hope the next week goes better for you. Hugs Shaz xx #50

Wow, Bridget, what a week. I can understand when things go wrong, they go really, really wrong. I hope you get your credit card issues resolved soon.

Your desk is very busy and that overhead shot is fantastic. Happy WOYWW from # 2.

Sorry to hear you've had such an awful week, Bridget. "When sorrows come, they come not single spies, but in battalions." Hope that will be the end of it, and you can get the credit card and the rest sorted out soon.

Your room is looking amazing! So full of industry and colour. You've got nothing to be jealous about - yours is fabulous, and so much space!!

Mine is coming on very nicely, as is the rest of the house on all fronts. It's tremendously exciting.

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #116

Well I certainly hope your next week is better than that last one! And I hope you get a chance to do more than walk in and out of your craft room! :) Thanks for stopping by my messy desk already and leaving me a comment. :) Deeyll #50
