WOYWW? The neglected desk

Well hello there. We missed last Wednesday's WOYWW so we were determined to join in today. What does the acronym stand for? I hear you ask, well, if you press your furry paw right here you'll be magically transported to the wonderful host of this weekly blog hop where she explains it all much better than a bunch of furry bears can.

So, what's on our desk? Sadly not an awful lot as you can see.

Wilbear has been commandeering the desk for his studies, he's been getting himself all stressed trying to keep up with the workload and we think he's feeling a little overwhelmed with it all. We pawsuaded him to take a break over the weekend and we all went to visit the cub. Horace created the page above whilst at the cub's. We always take our journal to show her and we always have a little rummage through her stash while we're there. How come other people's craft stuff seems so much more exciting than your own?

Here's a close up of Horace's page so far

He's not sure what else he'll add. Maybe a quote about chilling out for Wilbear? Anyway. We're off for a bloghop before Wilbear insists on studying again. TTFN.

With love from the bears


  1. Other peoples stash always seem more fun doesn't it!

  2. Hi there. thanks for the visit. Hope the studying goes well.

  3. Happy WOYWW and lovely to have a visit from you already. Loving the pink journal page. Hope that the study does not take up all of your time. I certainly know about taking on something that is demanding, but worthwhile 'most of the time'! Ali x. #46

  12. I didn't think I would make it this week, Bears, as I am so busy. Poor Wilbear feeling stressed, but I'm sure a visit to the cub helped. The journal pages look lovely and colourful! Thanks for your visit, it's always so lovely to have you drop by! Julie Ann xx #52

  21. It's no fun when you are stressed out and a little rest is the best thing. I bet Wilbear is feeling a lot better about the study after time out. Love the journal page, a chill out sounds lovely.
    Have a great week.
