So I'm getting a bit smarter and since Wednesday is a work day for me, these pics are really Tuesday evening pics.  Works for this side of the pond, right?!

First are photos of my workspace in the evening as the sun moves over the house to the west ...

... i love this time of day ... but it's fleeting ... and I have horrible horrible lighting at night ... need to change that.

The layout from last week is STILL on my desk! But now it's cut to 8-1/2 x 11 now - LOL!

... and now there are practice butterflies floating around on it.

And speaking of butterflies ... also on my desk is a little project I did on vacation. I took a very small amount of supplies for our short vaca.  I had this idea of this butterfly and I love the way it came out.  The large jewel on top is actually a flea market find from that weekend.

Hope over to Julia's blog to see more WOYWW!


  1. Well making progress on the layout. :) Gorgeous little butterfly! Loving the 3 drawer old chest you've got there! Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comment. Hugs, Nan 22

  2. You have a gorgeous work area. I love the old wood and the antique furniture. And of course, that butterfly with the vintage piece is amazing. Happy WOYWW from #2.

  3. My post is always written Tuesday and scheduled, so I won't tell a soul... Love your desk, and the storage chests. Helen 17

  8. The lighting is amazing in your craft room. I didn't see last week's but I like the look of the cut version. I am also super biased because I love butterflies! The one you made is really pretty. I have a punch from Fiskars that punches three different butterflies that you can layer for a similar effect and I love it! Thanks for sharing.

    Have a blessed day!

  11. Horrible evening light is something I suffer too, and even with a fab daylight bulb, I've just about stopped paper crafting in the evenings now. But your space is so ovely, and I bet the day time light is just fine. The lacy butterfly over the text looks wonderful. How great it is when an idea comes out of your head and onto the paper without any trouble!

  12. great look with the light hitting your page:):)

  13. loving your work room, hope you get the lighting sorted :-)

  14. Hi Betsy, lovely shots of your room in that light. The little set of drawers caught my eye too. Beautiful butterfly. Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #57

  15. Love the photos this week, they're sort of arty in their own right!
    Have a great crafty week! Happy WoYwW!?
