WOYWW84 ...

... not too much today - as some of you may know from my blog - I've been tidying!! 

Some of the projects I've already posted, and a few that are in progress!!
On my desk last week there was a picture of my challenge notebook - which seems to be a popular idea - I couldn't do without it.  Anyway, I decided that I would make a new book for 2011.  I did look for a totally plain notebook to decorate, but I ended up buying a rather beautiful A5 spiral bound notebook from WHSmiths (for those not in the UK - this is a stationery shop).  I loved the colour (purple) and the outline hibicus flowers.  So all I did was add some ribbons - still very pretty!!

My new notebook - just love the cover, so I couldn't alter it - just added some ribbons for fun!
And that's all for now - I really must do something in the house - I keep putting it off to make cards instead.  I'll be back later this evening with some more stuff to show you.  I will try to get around as many desks as possible - I do love to peek!!

That's a really lovely journal, beats my scraps of paper any day! Cards definitely take precedent over house work you know!

I like your spirl bound book and I adore hibiscus flowers. If you have a Zutter machine you could easily make your own spirl bound books.

I love your corner desk, repurposed from computer to craft I'm guessing.

I love that you left the notebook the way it was because you liked it and instead addedd some ribbon - beautiful idea.

I love stationery shops! Could spend hours there just looking at everything. A challenge note book is such a good idea, I might just 'steal' that one.

Love that notebook - & your frontage to it is just right too.
