WOYWW 1st September

Morning all, time for another WOYWW and it's the 1st September can you believe it.  Time is passing me by so quickly.  Now I am at home I can never remember what date it is, sign of old age me thinks LOL.  Anyway if you would like all the details of this great phenomenon then pop over to Julia's place HERE.
On my desk this morning is a flower box which I am in the process of decorating for several challenge pieces.  I am a little behind this week as my children go back to school tomorrow so I have had lots to do.  I also have the Compendium Of Curiosities open again for a challenge and I have a Crafters Workshop Template to the left, I love these templates and as you can see I have used this one on my box.
A little close up of said box, which will be blogged after this post as all the bits and bobs are ready for assembling.  When I attend workshops some people have asked if I tidy up in preparation for WOYWW and the answer is NO, I am always like this LOL.  I tidy around whilst I am crafting and afterwards as I like to work in a clear space so I can see what I am doing, in my case it's called OCD.  Right off to make a brew now and assemble my box and then hopefully some gardening.  Have a great day everyone, Tracy x

What a lovely box on your desk. I swear there is more going on this week than I have ever seen on your desk. Like you, I simply must clean up between steps in a process and between projects. Lovely and inspirational as always. Happy WOYWW.

Such a lovely tidy desk with everything in its place. I am looking forward to seeing the completed box. It is a lovely colour to start with.
Have a good day, Tracy!

the box is looking great ... I admire anyone who can work like that, I start off with good intentions but it degenerates and I can only seem to create in mess.

Nothing to do with age ... I am in my early 20's and I can never remember the day either ... actually that is a big fat lie ... but it was designed to make you feel better ... I can remember what day it is really :0)

Lovey desk Tracy, I love your house card on the easel too. Will pop back and see how the box turned out. I looked at TH book yesterday in a craft store and was surprised how small it actually is, it always looks bigger on peoples desks for some reason! It's packed full of good stuff though.

Hugs
