Welcome back to my blog.It's been a while. Again. I try to write at least the one post a week, on Wednesday, joining in with all the wonderful deskers for What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, hosted by our fabulous Julia over on the Stamping Ground. I try, but more recently it's been a struggle. For the moment. Things will improve - eventually. In the meantime, here's what's on my desk today.
I'm debating on how best to use this lovely piece of paper. That flower is just too lovely to cover up. The other bits and pieces may, more likely may not, be used on the next scrapbook page I put together. And that brings me to a problem that has been exercising the old grey matter this week. It's embellishments. They are taking over this craft room. In short, I have too many.
On this tray is just a small sampling. They're sort of sorted into colours - it's a bit hit and miss but it does make selecting those most suitable for a layout easier. It's clear that I have to admit to having far too many. I should stop buying, no matter how tempting.
And perhaps that should apply to papers too. A few years ago I sorted my papers into colours too but that has proved to be less than satisfactory; especially when making up my homemade kits. The problem is that most are double sided and the main colour on each side can be quite different. More sorting's been done. A much more simplified system this time. All I've done this time is split the sheets into those patterns I consider suitable for using as the layout base and the rest. And it's down to Annie's
Crafty Bear to keep the stack in order!
I don't have anything more to add really, no funny, no book - though I've just started listening to Richard Osman's 'Thursday Murder Club' - instead, given that it's October and Halloween is fast approaching, here's my 'and finally' ...
This is Mylo, the most adorable little pumpkin and the latest puppy to join our extended family. He's been adopted into the eldest of our grandson's family. Sadly, the latest restrictions have prevented us from meeting him yet but I can't wait to cuddle him.
Have a great WOYWW and a good week, whatever the restrictions in your part of the world.
