Wednesday, 4 January 2017


Hurrah I am back in the driving seat and cracking on with 2017!!

So, its the first Wednesday of the year so that mean we all join Julia (link over in the side bar) and show What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

On my desk this week is the start of my next 365 Journal.  A few days late but I have been doing these for about 6 years.  I noticed they are starting to take up precious room so I thought I would try and cut back on their size and use the final pages of my 2016 journal but only A4 for each month rather than a double page spread.

This means that one journal will cover two years.  In an attempt to get ahead of the game I thought I would decorate January and February (mid decorating when this photo was taken).

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Romantic Actor Sues Hubby'-watch this space eh?

Happy crafting


  1. good to see you sharing your desk - and your journal - again. Hope 2017 is happy and healthy for you (although having seen your daily walk photo yesterday I fear it's not gone so well so far! hope it settles again soon) Helen #??

  2. Love your cards for this week and the journal. Happy WOYWW and Happy New Year - BJ#13

  3. I started the journal years ago but didn't keep up with it. I couldn't seem to find time working etc. Now that I am retired I might try again. Love those Man Bites Dog cards...too funny! Happy New Year! Vickie #12

  4. The entertainment world madness goes on - the cards will be right for sure! The A4 -iness is a good idea, am pretty sure if you decorate any more you wont have space for comments. Or is that me misunderstanding the intent, again!

  5. I always enjoy the cards. Looks like you're making good progress with those journal pages. Do you just make a not of what happened each day in the squares? Hoping the RA settles down a bit for you this week.

  6. Hi Kyla, hope you are feeling better today. After my first exercise class yesterday, I ache like crazy today. The idea being to get you as breathlesss as possible then teach you how to manage it. Great cards, Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #3 xxx

  7. Happy New Year, Kyla. Well, that looks like one really busy desk. Enjoy the decorating of those pages.
    Take care. God bless.

  8. Great start on your journal! I tried this type of journal one year, and I think it fizzled out in about May when I just didn't get it done in time to start the month. Good plan to be a few months ahead! Happy New Year! Lindart #37
