WOYWW (On Thursday) #4 - OOPS

Yikes....things got a little crazy in my world the last few, life -you know the drill.  I am still going to post my WOYWW, even though I am fully aware that it is Thursday and really just hours shy of Friday.  In all fairness, this was how my work area looked on Wednesday morning as I took it right before I went to bed on Tuesday night.

Still working on my Chicago scrapbook, but am heading into the home stretch.  In the middle towards the top I finally got all the completed pages - 24 to be exact so far, into page protectors where they should be.  Directly to the left of that is the base of my Project Life cover page for the year.  And then, the project that has kind of derailed my scrapbooking this week.  A very sweet lady hired me to address invitations for her son's upcoming nuptials,  I have to have those completed by Monday.  At least rather than the overly tidy work space I was sporting last week, I am back to much more the status quo for me.  I am just itching to get back to scrapping, but a paying customer has to have top priority over what I want to do for fun.  If you are wondering about WOYWW (What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday), make sure you drop by Julia's little slice of the blog world Stamping Ground where she connects crafty people and their work desks all over the world.

Here are a few shots of one of the layouts I did this past weekend.  I loved doing this 2 page layout.  Millennium Park and Cloud Gate were at the top of my list of favorite things to see.  Cloud Gate, AKA "The Bean" was absolutely fascinating to me and I love all the pictures that my friends captured.

Have a great weekend and hopefully by Monday night, I will be back to scrapping!


  1. That is awesome that you have a paying customer :)

    Your desk looks great. There is still a whole spot to work there!

    I love your bean layout!

    When we first went there, someone told AJ he should go see the "beam". So we walked over to theater (in your left side page 3rd picture...) and we all looked at it and were like, oh that's nice. Then I turned around and saw the BEAN and was like, OHHH! That's what we are supposed to be looking at!!

  2. You are super busy being creative! I always wanted to see The Bean . I hope to get to Chicago one day. I think it looks like a bike helmet.

  3. How cool to have a paying customer!
    And great two page layout! You have some cool shots from Millennium Park :)

    Trying to get back on track with scrapbooking here as well!
    Especially since I have an assignment due on the 8th and a few projects of my own to work on!

  4. Ah, I recognise your status quo! Am super impresesd tha tyou've done so much of this trip already. Wonderful pages. Do you know,until I watched a film at the weekend (The Vow), I did not know that Chicago was the home of The Bean...and here it is again! I obviously need to go!

  5. Great Chicago pictures - makes me want to go back. :-)
