Many thanks for popping in, especially as recently I have been the world's worst blogger - it's a week since I posted! It's not that I've been doing nothing. I am, after all, retired, and as is often said by the retired, I'm so busy I don't know how I ever found time to go to work! Ah well, that's life! Now on to what I'm here for - to show you and Julia what's on my desk today.
Shimelle's Clear the Desk course. It's not entirely mad or unrelated to the task list as can be seen from that pile of layouts (on the left of the desk). Not only has it got me crafting again but it's chipping away at that paper mountain and now I have five lovely layouts to show for it. The pile of maker's strips are testimony to that too. The box with the scraps - all that's left from the kit used - old black and white photo and the stamp set is for the sixth, and last layout from this kit. That little basket sitting on top the guillotines contains what is left of the die-cuts and cut-aparts I've been using. All that stuff at the back is necessary tools of the trade and, just so I won't forget, the current UFO - the unfinished Christmas album.
Not much to report on the book listening front. I finished The Lewis Man only yesterday so it's on to The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson.
It's the sequel to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so I'm expecting it to be just as good a read. Unfortunately, I've already read the follow up and third in the sequence, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest. Hopefully, I've forgotten enough of the plot to stop me enjoying this one too.
Finally, apropos the first paragraph.
