Well, Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday is almost over and here's me just turning up for the party.
Casa Worthington has been a house of illness this week ... the EM came down with a nasty case of dizziness at the weekend and he was so poorly by Monday I had to call in the doc. He has vertigo caused by some vicious virus that came along after his recent attack of flu. He's still not good today and, to make matters worse, I've had another attack of leg pain last night which has laid me low too. The new medication has not been the answer and I've now been referred to a specialist. But enough of that! There's not a lot going on my desk but there is this:
Yes, it's a Hels Sheridan tag - how lucky am I to be the one drawn in Frankie's TH Birdcage swap - celebrating her 300 posts on 7th September. I'm really chuffed to receive this stunning tag which now has pride of place in the craft space. Difficult to see in this photo - you can click to enlarge - but Hels has even included a button with my initial on it - how fab is that :) You can read how Hels made the tag here
I'd show you the photos of the one I made for the swap but it has gone of to Wyoming and as I haven't heard from DeeDee yet, I'm assuming she hasn't received it yet. Hopefully, she will have it by next Wednesday so I will reveal all then.
Edited Note: Since posting this I've had an email from DeeDee telling me to reveal all. She says she won't peek until after the tag has been delivered ... I'm not sure I wouldn't be tempted but I've posted it here for anyone who wants to see what it looks like :)
And here's what else is on my desk. I've just finished a card - it can be seen in the previous post here . So what you can see on the left is some card and tartan patterned paper which I may use on the next card - for an uncle's 80th birthday - I haven't decided yet; the drawer set I finally got round to prettifying recently - post here; a mix of stamps that I've either just finished using on a project or plan to use soon including a couple of gorgeous new Penny Black's; a box of what I refer to as the sharps - i.e. pokey tools and cutting knifes - the safest place to keep them; and the last item is my favourite scissors.
That's my desk this week - now I'm off to do a bit of desk spotting, hoping to spot the lesser-spotted floor crafter amongst the tables, desks, dining-rooms and sofas that are all linked up to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground - if you've never been over there, you don't know what you're missing :)
Happy crafting to you all,
