It's more like What's Not Going On My Workdesk this week and what a mess. If you are wondering what this WOYWW is all about then it is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - an occasion when a bunch of us bare all, and show the world the state of our work desks/spaces/floors/cubbyholes, etc., - in other words the place where we craft. The head workspace keeper is Julia and you will find an awesome list of links at her blog, Stamping Ground. If you've never tried it you are invited to pop over and take a peek.
This is how the desk was earlier this morning, just as I left it when I got poorly at the weekend, so there are a couple of unfinished projects there, the Hougie board is still out, as are the flowers, scissors and dimensional squares. I keep brads in the little red set of drawers but, as you can see, it was sitting on an open copy of the Scrapbook magazine. It's open at an item showing an altered set of drawers and I was debating with myself whether I could do something similar with my wee set. Still not decided.
A couple of hours later here's the project I had been working on now completed. It's a matching notecard, seed packet envelope and notepad set I've made for a gardening friend. Here are some close ups of the individual items:
|seed packet envelope- front and back|
|notebook - front and back|
Cardstock: Stampin' Up, Certainly Celery and Chocolate Chip
Design Paper & Toppers: from Joanna Sheen's Cottage Garden Papercraft CD Rom
Insert: White copy paper
Toppers for notepad: Design House, One Find Day sticker set
Embellishments: Prima e.line flowers brown, gold brads, Velcro fastener for seed packet envelope
Acknowledgements: I found the template for the seed packet on Julie's blog, Stamped in his Image. I had to enlarge the template to make it big enough for the packet of seeds but otherwise it was easy enough to make. I also have to thank, once again, my blogging friend, Sarah at The Handmade Card for the notebook idea. As usual, I used My Craft Studio Professional to make the insert using the digital punch tool.
Time for my lunch I think, then it's a trip round as many of the workspaces of the world as I can manage. I really enjoy these weekly trips to the desks and seeing what you've been up to, whether it is card making, scrapbooking, writing, knitting, sewing, whatever, and I try to get round as many as possible. If I miss any of you out I apologise but circumstances can conspire to prevent me. That's all for today.
