Back home and time to show my desk - where did that week go?! Julia, Queen of desks will explain all if you pop over to her blog, meanwhile here's the desk!
Having only got home last night and then shopping and doctor's today the most important thing was to go and play! Last night I started adding to a journal page I'd made a background for ages ago! A little bit more added at 7am this morning, and as you can see I was about to go back to it when I remembered it was Wednesday! 
I didn't manage to see many desks last week, partly because my grandchildren were staying with us but mostly because we couldn't access the internet very well! We also had a day without any electricity from 9-5 during the day as men were working on something down the road! Such Fun!!
So, enough of the excuses, I do hope to visit more this week, especially those who paid me a visit!
If you are in the UK I hope you are enjoying this lovely weather we are having!

That journal page looks really promising. And I can see lots of nice DIs and some hole punches. I'd love to see what you do with that journal page. I'm a bit late getting round to visits tonight, as our internet went down earlier. Have a lovely, creative week. xxx#59 Julie Ann

That's a great page on display, Chris! Those are my favorite colors. Glad you're back safe and I hope you have a great week! Darnell (I'm just visiting this week, so no no.)

No electric when you want to craft and need a heat tool is no fun but now you are back home I can see more lovely journal pages being created. Love the Stampotique stamp by the way.

Great journal page, and I love the Octopode stamp! I admit, I don't know how any of us would cope without the internet these days, its become a basic part of our lives, hasn't it? Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #32

I am sure I would go mental if I had no internet for a full day and YES I a enjoying the weather which is why I a late posting. Too much to do outside - and enjoy!
