WOYWW 217 – working on the mini-book


Just a shot of my WOYWW desk.  I am hoping to work on my mini-book from the other day, but it’s skating, and a round of haircuts, and DS seems to have settled in to staying at home rather than sloping off to the office as he usually does. That may cause me to don a Summertime Mom hat or two, in the COOK and WASHERWOMAN roles.  He’s meeting up with friends in Essex next week and needs a full complement of clean clothes.


OH! And I got a lovely bit of mail yesterday from Petrina, but will have to hold off sharing it till tomorrow.  Pop back, if you get a chance.  It’s very cool…..

Happy WOYWW!

  2. Hi MaryAnne, the mini book looks intriguing- love the ‘vintage, but modern’ look of the papers. Boys! They’d vanish under a pile of their own dirty clothes & dishes if we left them too it, lol. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz xx #22i

  3. Beautiful papers that you have chosen.

  4. I love those papers…retro yet modern..if you know what I mean! That little mini album is great, really clever.
    And I love having my two around for the summer even though the amount of cereal that I have to buy trebles! And where does all the bread go??
    Hugs, LLJ #20 xx

  14. What would boys do without their mums? You have a busy household by the sounds of things. Your mini book looks gorgeous so far and I am really loving the colors of those pretty papers. Hope you have a great week and perhaps time on the weekend while your son’s away to get back to your book. Happy WOYWW! Danie #25

  15. The mini book looks gorgeous! We just got a message we need to pick my daughter up from the airport so that curtails my crafting plans for today! thought she was taking the train! Ah well, I so missed her, so I mustn’t complain. Part of being a mum/wife etc! Happy WOYWW. Julie Ann #12

  16. Yep, having everyone at home really does seem a distraction, I can’t understand why! Loving the bright cheerful papers you’ve chosen.
    Are you cropping with us this weekend? Am going to put another call out….do ignore the email!

  17. Isn’t motherhood wonderful? Asks the woman whose “motherhood” consists of scooping poop and filling bowls with water and cat food!! I’m sure you are far better at it than I would be.

    That’s a lovely little book you’re working on.

    Happy WOYWW from #2.

  18. loving your mini book – wonderful papers and embellishments!
    ahh, dear sons… ours has perfected the ‘I just can’t work the washer/cooker/hoover – it always goes wrong’ technique, then lil sis steps in and does it for him *sigh*
