I can't believe we are here at another What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday again!
I stood on a chair to take this photograph this morning - thought it would show more, and it does. I can see the handle of my Purple Cow guillotine peeking out from under the worktop. Love this piece of equipment. I bought it because I was having real problems cutting straight with my trimmer and problem solved.
I'm working on a wedding tag so practically all the stuff on my desk is for this project - you can see the beginnings of it in the centre of the photograph. The Pink Petticoat image is lying on top waiting to be glued in place. I've pulled out a selection of stamps to choose from, an ink pad, bottle of Stickles, the tag template I use, and a box of gems. Missing from this picture are the flowers, charms and fibres that will also go on the tag - there's nothing minimal about my tags : )
To the right you can just see a spiral bound notebook - I intend using this as an art journal. Well, that's the intention but I never seem to get round to actually putting anything in it so I've deliberately placed it there as a permanent thorn in my side! On top is some die cuts of a cat and lamp post I'm thinking of using on a card. And, you can just see in the background my attempt at a clean and simple card which I hope to submit to the newly launched "Less is More" challenge site where the colour requirement this week is black, white and pink.
For the curious and to give you an idea of what the wedding tag will look like, in true Blue Peter fashion, here is one I did earlier.
This one was made for DH's nephew's wedding in October last year in England - so the bridegroom in the image is wearing a suit. The one I'm working on now is for my sister Margaret's physiotherapist and as it's for a Scottish wedding the bridegroom is wearing the kilt.
If, for some reason, you don't know what the WOYWW thing is, it's a huge snoop fest hosted by the keeper of the desks, Julia, on her blog Stampin Ground and you can join in the fun here. It's a huge blog hop where you get to see what other bloggers worktops/desks/dining tables/cubbyholes look like on a Wednesday morning. Once again I have to apologise to those of you whose desks I didn't get too - I did try my best and got around about two-thirds of you last week but time ran out on me. I will try to do better this week.
Edited Note: It occurred to me after receiving a number of comments that you might like to know the size of the tags. They are quite large, measuring 6.5" (16.5cm) long and 3.5" (9cm) wide, so wouldn't really make a gift tag. However, they make a great keepsake.
