What On Your Workdesk Wednesday (1 May 2013)

A lot of mess!  I haven’t taken part for such a long time with WOYWW.  Since the last time I participated my desk has moved over 100 miles to the sea side and a new blog created.  
Working on catching up with Project Life this week.
Pop on over to Julia to look at many other crafty spaces.

    Wow Candace, talk about life changes! You’re so brave and a brilliant role model..so what’s the self employed part? I’m a partner in my DH’s joinery business which till last week meant book work and sales…but am about to start blogging about the changes that have made me his actual apprentice!
    My handbag girly, is by Red Herring from Debenhams, got it last summer..there was a matching purse too, but I didn’t splash on that and DEEPLY regret it!!
    Meanwhile, lovely to see your WOYWW…and your PL stuff is amazing, you’re totally on the go!

    Thanks for dropping by …I have just had a quick look at your bravery to up sticks …it is hard …I did it 8 years ago. I moved to the sea too but in Scotland from London. I have never regreted it although i might have if I were of working age.My daughter moved with me and it took 4 years to get a job…any job. Even the Job Center intemated that it was predjudice ….because she was English!!?? … and jobs are few here in Fife.Must have a proper read of your past posts …good luck xx68

    Candance: What a new start for you and the kids! Love your family photo! 40 was when I was widowed, so it was a re-think my life moment for me too. I wish you all the happiness in the world in your home by the sea! Such a great spread you have there for your Project Life! Thanks for the visit! Winnie#78

    Wonderful project life, I always said if I had kids I would do scrapbooking, fabulous way to create wonderful memories. Thanks for the visit and have a wonderful creative day…

  20. 1st May 2013 / 7:01 pm

    Hi Candace
    Thanks for dropping by earlier. How wonderful to be by the sea. We love to go to Conwy where we have a caravan, wonderful country.
    Have fun
    Rosie x

  21. 1st May 2013 / 7:20 pm

    Just read your reason why!
    What a fantastic and brave thing to do. I know how you must feel, there is no better place to run to than the coast.
    I live in Oxford and so miss the sea. I want to run away too, to the sea in Wales. I would go to the Lleyn Peninsular, Hells Mouth beach and watch the sea birds and waders all day.
    Wishing you so much luck. Please keep me posted about your life and progress. Good for you!

  22. 1st May 2013 / 7:49 pm

    Hi Candace – thanks for the WOYWW welcome – see you again soon… Mxx #83

  23. 1st May 2013 / 8:12 pm

    Thanks for popping by my place. I have had a nose round yours, not just your desk!!!
    I shall follow your journey as you do something we should have done when we were forty somethings and just getting married. I never had the courage so I think you are wonderful………. best of luck in everything you do.

    I have never really looked at Project life but read alot about it. I guess its another crafting avenue to go down. Love your place by the sea and good on you for making that life changing decision

  28. 1st May 2013 / 10:43 pm

    Now that is a full and busy life, yet well-ordered, if your desk is anything to go by :). Thank- you for finding me and leaving a comment and delighted to discover you too!

    Project life, I am so tempted to try it. I have so many pics that I don’t even know where to start anymore. thanks for stopping by my blog today. #94

  31. 2nd May 2013 / 1:35 am

    Thanks for visiting! And good on you for moving to live by the sea. I could easily be tmepted to do the same 🙂
    Happy late WOYWW,

    Your PL pages look so pretty! Love the color combo you chose. The pic of you and the kiddos is super adorable! Hope you had a great woyww!

  33. 2nd May 2013 / 6:08 am

    My desk looks exactly like yours as well; keyboard gets regulated to wherever there is still space.

    There needs to be some kind of craft table created that takes computers into consideration! We all need our digital distraction (I mean inspiration) right there with us while we scrap!

  34. 2nd May 2013 / 6:41 am

    Hope you have a fab time in your new home.

  35. 2nd May 2013 / 8:44 am

    Well only a day late but at least I made it round………eventually!
    It’s good to have you back with us Candace and what a turn- a-round you’ve made to your life. It can’t have been easy making such a life changing decision even though fate stepped in and gave you a shove in that direction, but it sounds as though it was the right one for you and I’m envious that you’re by the sea.
    Happy Crafting!

    Cheers, Jana 108

    Thanks for your visit to my blog yesterday… I love to see your Project Life pages but more… I surfed through your blog/website and read a whole bunch – you are inspiring, running of to live by the sea! I was born/raised at the seaside and deeply miss the beaches – it is my dream to move back there… if economics/crisis will ever be over, I will definitely move! Say hi to the waves from me and good luck with the shop! (oh, and happy belated woyww, Marit #84)

    Thanks for your visit to my blog this week. My mum got plaster off and a splint instead.;-)
    Wow your kids are your absolute image, they are like clones of you.
    You are all so brave to run off to be at the sea. I wish you the best of luck.
    I’m late again this week.

    I kept seeing your picture on other blogs I was visiting and thought I would pop over and say howdy. I’m kind of in awe of people who really do scrap…I love making the albums but never seem to fill them up. I’m so sure you will appreciate these lovely pages done the line….have a great week.
