WOYWW - 3 Days!

Hello!!!

Yes - it's Wednesday, which means it's time for "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" --- go check out Julia, the chief desk inspector's blog HERE to check it out and join in! 

The level of excitement is reaching EPIC proportions.... emails and skype sessions increasing (if that's possible)... and I CAN'T WAIT to go see HELS!  Here's my desk today......


Yes, it's true, that's my *very first* PASSPORT!  Never traveled overseas before, and I'm so looking forward to getting the first stamp!  But the thing I'm looking forward to most of all is meeting my sweet, funny, generous, adorable, long-lost-sister, separated-at-birth, Hels.  There will be PLENTY of crafting time built into our visit, and Hels signed us up for a class with THE Linda Elbourne at THE Lin Brown's store, which is only 10 short minutes from Hels!  I fear we may need to visit daily.... LOL.... (sort of....)  And of course I need to visit the Queen... :)  I know we will have the best time ever.... just can't wait to get there! 

Oh.... and I'm working on my CCC Tag for this week --- that's the brick wall and umbrella man behind the passport.... and I just picked up Tim's new Trimmings - gotta play with those soon!  And the front of a card, just waiting for a focal image.... that's my desk for this week!  Next week.... it may look VERY different!  Just sayin' !!!  :)  It will be "my" desk.... UK satellite office... HA! 

Happy Thanksgiving to all the US visitors... and to those in the UK --- SEE YOU REAL SOON!!!  :)  

Hugs all around,

~ ellen.
