WOYWW - not quite a desk again this week but some crafting was done!!

Oh my where has the week gone??
Sorry I missed last week. I was niece sitting for a little while & then this week I haven't got a chance to take a picture of my desk but I did snap a quick one of my visitor with my Elle DT project for sat!!
Its 2 week old Eva

I sit down before seeing these pics lol!! I got hubby aka uncle Andi to have a snuggle!!


I also had my older niece Emily & her friend round today (busy but nice day, shattered now!)
We all sat up in my new craft space & this is what they made
This one is Emily's for her bedroom wall.

& this one is Tammi's for her bedroom. She is going to put a photo of her & Em in the middle when she gets back.

I did just try & go take a picture of my work space as I now have my desk & more shelves up but hubby has gone walk abouts & workshop was locked up :-( I need my own keys!
Hope you all had a good day. We had sun all day plus all my visitors & some crafting so I've had a great day.
Apologies I probably won't get to visit many people today as its getting late & I am tired but I'll try catch up in the week.

Hopefully I'll get some crafting done soon, just waiting for hubby to take my desk up into the office.

Whats on your "Tweet" desk Wednesday?

Good sunny morning WOYWDWers!!
Lots of good news to share with you today. Firstly my new niece was born yesterday she is called Eva.
I had some sneaky cuddles last night when she was only 3 hours old!
Next bit of good news is I've finally moved out of the bathroom!! (For those who haven't visited me before, we live in a static caravan with a bathroom, shower room  & toilet, so I took over the bathroom)
...but I am not totally moved because hubby still has some bits to move & I have a house guest staying on my desk for a week. Meet Ella Bella B
My mum & dad fly to France today so I am bird sitting!! 
look empty shelves! Oh & the top of the toilet!!
Here's my new space. It is an office built on a mezzanine floor above hubby's workshop
I have been sat on my patchwork blankets I made whilst sorting stuff out!
Here's the other side where you can see hubby's master paint work on car panels. I am not allowed to go near them!! My desk will be going where the panels are under the lights.
Great eh?! My own propper space. Now instead of banging my knees & elbows in the bathroom I bang my head on the sloping roof instead!!! lol!!!!

Apologies for being so late with visiting last week. I will try to do better this week!!
If you want to see where to WOYWDW started then pop over to see Julia & everyone elses desks!
