WOYWW #757


It is Wednesday so I am linking to the Stamping Ground

Follow the link to find out more about What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday and maybe join in... This is my post for WOYWW #757

SO here's my desk!

Not a lot to share as we had Ollie for 48 hours on Monday and Tuesday - and the rest of the week has been equally busy for some reason!

On my desk - I was making a Birthday card and so needed to use the stamping platform. You might be able to see a couple of candles on the right hand side - I added images stamped on tissue. I wanted one of theses to go in this exploding box which I mentioned in the Gecko Galz post below:

On Facebook today were some drone shots of our house block two years ago:

So I suggested Kevin do some drone shots today. This was one:

You can see the kangaroo and koala on the mulch in the front garden! 

Happy Advent!

Wishing you a happy week...and hope to get around to you all this week...
Happy  WOYWW!


  1. Hi Susan. I thought I'd finally come out of the shadows...been thoroughly enjoying seeing what you've been up to for awhile and look forward to your posts. I know you well from Gecko Galz, but never really looked at your blog til recently. I enjoy the desk shots (and I'm not a member of WOYWW, tried it once and it's way too time-consuming for me as I'm just slow). And today, I see the roll of toilet paper and THAT"S GENIUS! I'm going to steal that idea. Happy Advent! XOX, Aimeslee

  2. By now you're in the pool, exercising like a demon...sorry about the link hash up...I genuinely don't know what I did or didn't do!! Anyway, fascinating exploding box SUsan, how fab that is. I really would also like to think that the words on your beautiful CW page could apply to me, but modestly!!! At very first glance I thought you were arranging your ink bottles in a Christmas tree formation at the back of your desk....still time!! The drone shots are awesome, look at the community that has sprung up around you, amazing. Love that I could pick out your place by the yard lighting!

  3. Hi Susan, they are great photos of the house and so many more houses now! I love the pop out box, not made one of those for years and they are so special. happy woyww. Hugs, Angela x11x

  4. Wow that featured page you have there is stunning!! I thought it was an atc till I saw it on your desk. So funny to think of you with kangaroos at Christmas - perhaps he should have a red nose? Those drone shots are amazing, such a lot has changed in 2 years. I'm looking at that pop up box and thinking that may be the way forward for my son's 30th. I did a huge album for my daughter which took forever but I don't have anywhere near the same number of photos for my son so that might be a solution - smaller but different (Not that he'd give a hoot but I'd feel guilty if I didn't do something). Have a good week, love n hugs, Cindyxx #12

  5. Wow those drone pics are fab. What a difference. I love the little gift box - a great idea. x x Jo

  6. The drone shots really show the difference! Funny to have Christmas kangaroos and koalas but it’s your normal I guess. Your page is wonderful and I loved the little box as well, clever you!
    Hugs LLJ 9 xx

  7. Amazing to see the difference two years can make. Is this your first Christmas in your new house? Happy WOYWW. Angela #14

  8. How fabulous to have those shots of your house progress, there has certainly been a lot of progress!
    That's a great exploding box.
    Have a good week

  9. I love the box , great idea . The drone shots are amazing too, what a difference!! Happy woyww Helen #4

  10. well! That's one thing...or two things I know I will never see in my front garden...a kangaroo and a koala! and what a difference a few years make to what was before and now! We have an ariel view of our...sorry...my bungalow taken years and years ago. A lot has changed! Happy WOYWW!? ((Lyn))#18

  11. Wow, what a big difference in the photos! I love your kangaroo and koala on your lawn! Perhaps next week I will share our lawn menagerie! The exploding box is certainly a "wow" statement! Lindart #19

  12. Wow what a difference two years make Susan - from empty block to a community. Love the antipodean CHristmas decor. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW. Sarah #3

  13. Love the drone pics of your house, Susan. Your pop up gift box is looking good, too.
    Take care, and have a good week

  14. OMG! I get excited when I see a hedgehog in the garden. I can't imagine seeing a kangaroo. That is a really cool progression as captured by drone. Love it. And as I am a little late (knitting mate yesterday) I got to see your cute cards. So much fun! Love the box too. Been ages since I thought to make one.
    Happy (late) WOYWW!
