I'm confused and don't really know what week it is, Julia says Week 77 but by my calculations it's Week 78.
Whatever, another week gone in a blur! So much to do and so little time and here we are at another Wednesday and this is what my desk is like right now - haven't done a thing so far to make it look any better : (
This pic was taken at 8.30am this morning and the light was terrible but hopefully you can see enough of the detail. At the front is the makings of the next card in the Alphabet series. There's the base,Tilda, some embellishments, and a bright red felt ornament - as Rolf Harris would say, 'can you guess what it is yet?'
To the right is some bits and pieces for a birthday card I have to make today. Leaning against my chicken cupboard are some stamps already coloured ready to be used - just awaiting further inspiration!
Featuring also is my latest crafting acquisition, a can of hairspray. Now, I don't use hairspray in the normal way so this had to be a special buy. I'm told it is a good idea to spray it over a piece of work featuring Perfect Pearls. This apparently fixes it so it won't rub off - also on projects with chalk. Will try it out when I find the time to experiment with the Perfect Pearls - soon I hope : )
Last week I showed you the ribbon stand my DH made for me and I bet you thought that was all the ribbon I have. You would be wrong if you did - amongst many faults I have a fetish for ribbon and buy it by the yard/metre whenever I see something pretty that shouts to me, you know, 'buy me, buy meee'. So here's another means of storage which, this time, I devised:
When DH constructed my workstation he added this panel at the left side, affixed hooks for scissors, templates, etc., and I later constructed this ribbon holder thingy from a binder ring and some card off-cuts with slots cut into them to thread the ribbon through. I try to keep the ribbons filed roughly by colour on these cards. If it ever gets to much for one ring I can always start another.
That's my workdesk today and for those of you wondering what WOYWW is all about please step over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground - link at the top of this post, where you can find others like myself revealing theirs.
In the meantime, bye for now,
