A site for my handmade cards, accompanied by my photos and written meanderings which are occasionally witty, often tongue-in-cheek, and rarely profound. Beginning in June 2013, you'll also see lots of NBUS, which is an acronym I coined for Never-Before-Used-Schtuff. Feel free to join in, use the acronym, and use up your NBUS too! Thanks for coming by! Have a beverage and enjoy!

WOYWW 282

Greetings to the wonderful world of What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday (WOYWW) where we all share photos of our desks and what we are working on and hop around to visit each other and leave comments!

My "desk" share today is actually a photo of a dining room table taken last week at a lake house near Minneapolis, Minnesota, which is 2,039 miles from my desk in the Playhouse! This craft extra vanganzia is the result of six blogging friends getting together from all over the world for a week-long craft fest!  
I did a full share on my prior post, so I won't go into detail here. Please scroll down for that post or click here. I love seeing photos and hearing about other bloggers who have been successful at meeting up in real life, so I thought all of my WOYWW friends would enjoy reading about our Fantastic International Stamping Adventure (FISA)!! 

Enjoy! And enjoy your day! No, seriously, enjoy.  LITS!* 

As always, thank you for coming by to visit the Playhouse and special thanks to you if you take the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower! Please let me know you came by, so I can be sure and return the flavor!

Why don't we all just move in together?! Have a dedicated craft floor and leave it up all the time!! We'll need a really big house with a huge-o craft space...WooHoo!!!!! xo Bev

Lisca Meijer said...

I wish I could have been there! That must be so good to meet up with other scrappers.
I live in Spain, but by coincident I have been to Minneapolis several times when my friend lived in Bloomsbury. It's a nice place. But when you craft, you don't see anything of the surroundings of course....
I'm going to try and find your previous post and look at what you've been up to.
Have a good week,
Thank you for letting look over your shoulder,
Lisca#67

Brenda said...

Well I have a lot of catching up to do since Feedburner isn't delivering my email notifications when my blogging buddies have posted. It's getting a little irritating! I love that you ladies got together like this and have a fabulous time with each other! I know you have made some wonderful memories and had lots of laughs. I really hope you ladies can manage to make this an annual retreat for you all!! I will be back tonight to catch up with the rest of your post Darnell. Gotta run for now though. Hugs, Brenda

Ayuyu Hunter said...

Thank you for sharing the great time you had with your sisters-at-heart! You described everything so well, and with lots of humor, that I felt like I was there (as an observer).
I'm sure this experience will encourage others to do the same.

Petra Swart said...

At this table there is surely going to happen a lot in the line of card-making!!! (and laughing and chatting and just being friends sharing a great hobby!!!)
Love your photo, Darnell!!!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

You must all have had a blast, there's a lot of happy faces beaming out from the photos! And happily, the desk looks like you were all having a home from home experience, lol....how many crafters does it take to create a mess? Looks like the answer is 6 ;-)
Love your scary porch pumpkin in the post above btw....hope it has the required effect on your visitors :-)
Thanks for visiting,
Hugs, LLJ xxx
