Wednesday, 21 August 2013


Well time has certainly flown … it appears this is my first visit to What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday this month. I’m not sure why I’ve missed a few but Wednesday does tend to creep up and take me by surprise. Anyway this week I’m ready for it and look at me Mrs Organised! I have the stuff out all ready for scrapping today. I’m planning to do the UKS weekly challenge and will pop back later with the finished page.

21.08.13To the right you can see some of the spoils of my shopping spree in the new Whiteley centre. I got an amazing bargain of Sharpies in Smith’s, 24 for £6.99 with the purchase of any pencil case. You might also spot a couple of white pens; I only buy the broad Signo ones which Paperchase kindly has on offer.

Enough of my desk – pop over to Julia’s and take a mosey around a few more.

ETA Before you go … please take a little look at my sketch challenge below.

Love the Signo pens, the best white pen in my book, always have a couple on the go. Great bargain on the Sharpies, well done you.
Thanks for visiting this morning. Just back from walking the dog and browsing with a cuppa.

For a pen-addict like myself the Sharpies offer was just too good to pass up on - collected a set this morning on my way into work.
Will have to give the white pens a try - will be near a Paperchase on Friday.

Very tidy desk Sue - obviously stuff is in the planning stage.

Have a fab week.

Thanks for the bargain tips!!! I never think to go into Paperchase, as I always expect them to be expensive. Thank you also for the nice comment and visit earlier. Happy WOYWW! Julie Ann xx #35

Nan G said...

Nice looking desk this week! A sweet score finding the sharpies on sale. Hmmm, looking at your sketch and thinking how I can put it on a card or canvas. Hope it doesn't have to an LO. Thanks for the earlier visit! Happy WOYWW! Nan G #1

You got a terrific deal on those Sharpies. The price of 8 for me was nearly $20.00 US, but I had a 40% off coupon, or I would never have gotten them. Still, you got a real bargain. Saw the layout, above, too. Very nicely done.

Thanks for stopping by my place earlier. Happy slightly late WOYWW from #10.
