... a messy but productive desk to share today.
Yes, my get up and go has returned and, as you can see, I started making a floral card last night. All the items I've been using are out on view still: paper pad, ink pads, box of ProMarkers, stamp, box of various other pens (glue, gold and white pens, etc.), gilding flakes & glitter tray, and, of course, my little box which holds vital tools of the trade. It can't be seen in the photograph, but I've drawn with a quickie glue pen around the flowers and birdcage in strategic places with the intention of adding some gilding flakes - I think it needs a touch of gold. Making an appearance at the back are the items that are permanent - if you are a regular visitor you will have seen them before. For newcomers, the chicken/chook cupboard houses ink pads.
Because my mojo had taken off, I've spent the last few days putting the craft space to rights ... it's surprising how out of control and disorganised it can get in a very short time ... and I hate crafting in a guddle. The new boxes from B&Q are now, in a very organised way, full of the stuff I'd shoved up on the shelf above the work area ... so much tidier. The EM has made very comprehensive labels for the boxes too, so I can see at a glance what is in each one. The card blank and envelope drawer has been straightened out and I feel much happier about the state of the craft space in general. Now it's full systems go and I hope to be/should be more productive in the coming week :))
On a miserable day like today - we've had torrential rain during the night and it's still vile out this morning - what more cheery sight than these bright yellow crocus. The EM and I have taken to going out for a half our walk every day, weather permitting ... we won't be going out today! ... and I spotted quite a few patches of colour in the gardens around the area yesterday. Here's some pretty pink lungwort (Pulmonaria) spotted in a border.
Before I sign off and go
Wishing you all well and enjoying WOYWW.
