WOYWW 143

Hi all, where has this week gone, a week of work panic I think lol.  Last Thursday they got THE call at work, Offsted was coming!!!  Anybody who hasn't heard of Offsted, it's a government body that checks schools, nurseries, basically all educational places.  You get visits every few years but never know when they will be coming and from last year they have bought in Admin and Financial checks for government funded children (in the UK 3-5 year olds get free nursery places for so many hours a week).  I am the financial manager there, I work mostly from home but as you can imagine I was stressing when the phone call came luckily these checks are given 5 days notice.  So my poor craft/office has more paper documents hanging around then patterned paper how awful is that lol.  Well they are coming Thursday early morning and ready or not it will be all over by Thursday evening.
Because of this I haven't managed to comment much, or craft for that matter, mind you last night and this evening (Tuesday) I have managed to play around with simple paper piecing and stamping, to basically destress lol.  I am scheduling this as I am in the office tomorrow until!!! well we were joking earlier saying that we will still be there when the lady comes Thursday morning lol.  I'm hoping to pop it on woyww before I go, hopefully I won't forget. Woyww you ask, is a fantastic weekly event that crafters all over the world participate in over at Julia's Blog where you will see some amazing desks messy and neat lol.
My desk this week is way too neat as I haven't crafted much but still not organised.  I really really really need to take some time in trying to sort out my stamps as those not in files I forget to use how bad is that lol.

The red card was put on a post this evening (Tuesday) and the blue was scheduled to just before this, so if you would like a look.
Happy woyww everyone, hope you have a fantastic week, hopefully I will get to see more this week.

Ofsted puts the fear into most people. When you finally tidy your stamps, you'll wonder why you didn't do it before, as life will become so much easier (well I expect so anyway). #82

More government paper than patterned paper??!! That's just wrong! At least you got a wee bit of crafty therapy in with your two great cards. I hope the inspection goes well and that the tidy fairies come visit you and help out.

If your patterned paper is even half of what mine is...that is a LOT of government paper! Good luck with the review. The cards are gorgeous! Breathe... Have a glass of (insert drink of choice here). This too will pass! ;) Have a great WOYWW! -Amanda 80

Loving the creative desk and those cards are fab.Makes me laugh when you get the heads up that ofsted are arriving .Hubby works in school and i keep saying well if the school was organised the way it should be there should be nothing to rush around and get done?Don't you agree ,but they seem to still go mad ...lol
Have happy woyww and hope thursday goes ok?

Oooh er the dreaded OFSTED!!! Just think how proud you'll be when you get that good report!
The desk will be there when you're all sorted so hang in and keep smiling and tell everyone else to. Nobody can criticise you when you smile!

Good luck with the Thursday visit...
I love those oriental cards. The cherry blosson branch is divine. Did you fussy cut it out or is it one of those new stamp and diecut systems I see all over now.

Both cards are fab. Great colours.
