... due to there being the right kind of sun :)
Hello WOYWWErs, Followers and Everyone Else,
Yes, the sun is blazing down here in Ayrshire and I am so tempted away from the craft space ... so much so, you will see that there's not much to show on my desk this morning. Want to join in with the weekly desk reveal, all you have to do is hop over to Julia's place, the Stamping Ground, and feel free to go on a grand snoop around the other workdesks, I use this term loosely because it could just as easily be the workfloor, of a fair few crafters from around the world.
This is the right side of my desk. There's a WIP deliberately concealed under the pile of pretty paper, ribbons, gems and paper flowers - to be revealed at a later date ... I can be such a tease :) The container of ribbon and trim bits and pieces is out for a reason ... I have an idea, bubbling away in the old grey matter, of how I could use these up in a few projects. I've been doing a bit of scoring which is why the Hougie board is still out on the desk. Not much really to show so here's a shot of the left side of the desk.
This seems to have evolved into the tool side of the desk with a few punches looking like ducks in a row. It's just so handy to have them there that I rarely get round to putting them away. And then there is the usual arsenal - the dish of scissors, the box of adhesives, my selection of rulers, the glass dish I keep the current wet wipe in plus other odds and ends - a role of labels, pencil and pen, a plastic container with my 'handmade for you' labels ready to stick on the back of cards and a couple of stray bits of leftover card. I didn't notice the post office receipt until after I downloaded the snap - too late to remove it and take another, methinks :)
Now, I did mention the sun, didn't I? Well, yesterday it was so hot that the EM decided we should just take off and drive down the coast. We ended up in Portpatrick, down in Galloway - it was beautiful. We enjoyed a picnic lunch just sitting looking out to sea and then wandered around the harbour. There's this wee bric-a-brac shop there that we always have a browse round. It's had a bit of a face-lift recently.
Isn't it cute. I love the sheep 'drinking' at the trough :) They had a huge range of vintage posters for sale ... all lined up against the wall. For anyone who is or ever has been the parent of teenager(s), or for anyone who is parent to an apprentice teenager, I thought I'd leave you with a close-up of this one poster which gave me reason to chuckle.
Julia has asked us to keep our posts brief, so I do apologise for the length of this one but just had to let you see these snaps.
I'm off now to have my lunch out in the garden ... well, I did say it was sunny, didn't I? ... but I will be back in an hour or so to begin hopping around Julia's list and pop into to see as many of you as I can.
In the meantime, I wish you all, including my newest followers, a very happy WOYWW.
See you later and happy crafting,
