WOWW 137 – Where does the time go?

on January 18, 2012

I am sure Wednesdays are coming round ever faster these days.  What’s on my workdesk today?  Sadly no zombies as yet, but I have managed to gather all the relevant pieces so hopefully soon.

Time is of the essence just now as I have gone from working 5 mornings and 1-2 afternoons to working 4.5 days during the week and at least one day of my weekend so crafty time is short.  Hence the guddle on my desk as everything gets done in 15 minute bursts or nothing would get done at all!  The photos are for the sketch, which is a UKS challenge.  These is so much going on over on UKS these days I can’t keep up but it is making me take these 15 minutes and do something with them, which is great.  I just haven’t decided which set of pics to go for but I have specific papers in mind so once that decision is made it should come together quite quickly.

The embossing powders are for a tag swap at one of the crops I attend and as they are due for next weekend, I really need to get myself moving with them, but they aren’t calling me quite as strongly as the need to make a scrapbook page, or even a zombie.  I must say no to the next swap, as life is just too busy at the moment.

For heaps more inspiration of various kinds, hop on over to Julia’s blog, where I will be at some point tonight.  Enjoy!

    It is such a pity that work intrudes into our crafting life. Good idea to just do what you can in short bursts.

    It sounds as though life is really busy for you ATM! I hope you manage to enjoy the little ‘me’ time that you can get and have fun with all your challenges and swaps 🙂

  6. It is amazing how shortage of time concentrates the mind to get something done. I bet your mind is working overtime with inspiration when you cannot actually done the practical part. I have started carrying a small notebook with me to jot down ideas before I forget. Your desk certainly looks ready for action. Have a good week. Maggie #70

  7. I’m proud of you for sneaking out those 15 minutes here and there. When my life gets busy like that I find that I waste my 15 by staring blankly at the wall. Then I regret it later.

  8. Very pretty embossing powders you’ve got there. I just have cheap ones from JoAnn’s. Sorry life if getting hectic, always seems the way though doesn’t it?

  9. I guess that woring extra is one of those double edged swords. More money to buy more craty bits, but less time to actually get anything done! Good luck with the projects! Happy WOYWW- Amanda 40

  13. LOVE your dolls clothes in the post below. Do you have patterns for the clothes or did you make them up – how talented are you?! It’s my daughters birthday in feb and she has a doll just like that (but was from Argos) and the clothes are scary expensive! Pinkladymel xx

    I hate when work messes with my crafting time! Its great that you can do things in 15 minute bursts, I find I get so wrapped up, I forget to stop and do things like cook dinner!

    Happy WOYWW (on Monday!)
