WOYWW #163 - The best laid plans
Did I fall asleep or something and lose six days?
It can’t possibly be time for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday again, can it?
Well it seems it really is, so I’d best show you what you’ve called in here to see…….my desk!
Today I’m working on a Table Plan and am having real fun and games with it.
Originally I was under the impression that the bride wanted the tables stuck directly onto the mirror but after meeting with her I discovered I had got the wrong end of the stick and she wanted the mirror covered with Navy card. (I’m glad in a way because I was thinking it was going to look very odd)
So, it was a quick trip to Craft Creations (My second last week) to get the card stock.
The trouble was they didn’t do it large enough to cover the mirror in one piece, so we decided it would be ok to have a join half way down seeing as it would mostly be covered when the tables were stuck over the top.
Next I had to cut it to fit by hand because I didn’t have a trimmer big enough to fit and guess what?.............You’ve got it………I managed to cut it wonky...............Aggghhhh!
So it was yet another trip to Craft Creations yesterday to get more card stock and this time I’ve managed to cut it correctly, Phew!
I already had the tables done and ready to be attached, all accept for the top table which was waiting for it's mount, but just as I was about to assemble it all I realised that I still didn't have all the correct card. I was still missing a piece of the wide Stardream card stock.......why didn't I think of that yesterday?…......…Double Aggghhhh!
Well, I really don’t want to have to drive over to Craft Creations a fourth time, especially not until after the Olympic Games anyway because to get there I have to drive right passed the entrance to the White Water Olympic Venue and it was busy enough there yesterday, so I’ve just ordered it on line instead.
I just hope they are good with order processing and don't take too long to get it in the post.
My next job will be all the place names, so the rest of my day is going to be spent printing, cutting and assembling.
Julie, over at The Stamping Ground should be pleased with me because I’ve managed to keep my blog short for once and only one photo too….don’t know how I managed that!

Enjoy your week and …………….
