Hello WOYWWers. I am back this week to share my workspace. Got some new stash to play with. Click on the link to Mrs Dunnit's blog our fearless Red Leader and snoop more desks around the world. 
 Some Alpha doodled ATC's for a swap I am joining in.
 Tried my hand at Lino Cutting. 
This is my stamp and the print.
 Today we went to the Wild Boar Park near Chipping in the beautiful Trough of Bowland. 2 of my grandies enjoying a bit of Go Karting.
 3 of them feeding the Deer.
 Yaz milking Molly.
BTW Molly isn't real.
Chicken stroking.
The chick is just 10 days old.

Lovely doodles, and the lino-cutting sounds intriguing... every time I think I'm catching up with all the crafting possibilities, a whole new area rears its head! Thanks for stopping by at Words and Pictures.

Hi Carol, I like the look of those drawing inks on your desk and your doodles are brilliant. I envy you being able to do lino cutting - it does look like good fun. Lovely pics of the grandies too. Crafty hugs, Anne x #32

Great ATCs, nice backgrounds, and I like your lino cut - the effect is very good.

Your grandchildren really enjoyed themselves and who wouldn't want to stroke a fluffy chicken :)

Happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #105

Very cool stamps! Really like what you did with the lino cut! Tried it many years ago and almost sliced my finger! yikes. Maybe the linoleum was too hard and old!
Thanks for sharing. dix 128

The Lino cutting looks good! Used to do that in my art class days! I have a bunch of those (Smoosh??) bottles too! They are fun and very cool colors! Have fun with your grandkids!

Hi Carol, Thanks for stopping by! I had a tough time finding you...but I finally did! Yay!

The pics of your grandkids are adorable! It looks like you guys had a fun day!

How do you like the Smooch goodies on your desk? I haven't tried those yet.

Oooo! Well done on making your own stamps. I still have the lino printings I did in school and haven't cut them as I don't want to ruin them! Daft really!
Some nice goodies on your desk and cute grandees!

Are they Smooshes I spy? you didn't tell us what's in your new stash.
Looks like you had a fun day with the grandees and it must have been a lovely experience for them.
See you soon,
Love Jo x
