WOYWW ~ What’s on your Workdesk Wednesday #191

I thought it was about time I shared my work desk picture as it has been a long while since my last posting.  As from previous postings you will see I am a bit of a roamer around the house, from monopolising the whole sofa and using the chaise as my desk to having a desk in the craft room.

Well I have moved again… not just rooms but this time house!  I think I got bored of the previous house having crafted in four out of eleven rooms. 

Unfortunately my new house is a small but very quaint cottage that in theory restricts my roaming.



My craft room is now the conservatory (currently a bit congested and disorganised but nearly completed) so as usual I took over the lounge then I decided to clear my dresser in the bedroom to use as a desk (although I only ever placed stuff here) as this picture shows you…



So hopefully next week I will have returned my temporary desk back into a dresser and be fully back in the craft room.  How long that will last ~ I really wouldn’t want to guess!

Happy 18th Birthday Son

Kobi Dominik 
Today would have been my son’s 18th birthday.  Unfortunately after fighting a terminal illness (Juvenile Huntington’s disease) he went to sleep on the 21st August 2008 aged 13.
I know this is my crafting blog but it was a result of my son’s illness that I took up crafting again.  I had previously attempted card-making in 2002 but had gone very giddy purchasing crafty items that when I sat down to actually make something nothing went and I gave up the hobby. 
In January 2008 Kobi was taken into hospital on his 13th birthday with pneumonia.  I got chatting to a woman (Nicola) that had one of her twins (aged 3 weeks) in hospital too.  We chatted and laughed and she told me all about scrapbooking.  Two weeks later I was attending a crop she organised and I was hooked!  Many purchases later (still some giddy ones) I was plodding along lovely. 
Now in 2013 I am being an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator having never used a stamp set until the week before I joined Stampin’ Up! in November 2011.
Crafting has really been one of the things that has helped me deal with the grief but also enabled me to made some wonderful friends that I would never have met.
