Good morning All, Thank you all for so many wonderful comments and all the visits to my blog, over the past week. I made it around all of the desks last week and left comments on 99.5% so I was feeling rather pleased with myself, however my poor ME addled brain didn’t like it much at all, so might not manage so many this week!!
I will try and keep my ‘waffling to a minimum today so onto my desk:
Well quite different this week, yes a ltlle bit messy, I have been playing, colouring and getting sticky near the light you will see some ‘pink’ decopatched items, a little piggy, a heart with a magnet on the back (so it can stick to the fridge) and a box and a large puzzle piece covered and made into a key ring, and a box which is what I planned on doing and ended up doing the rest as well! I bought the decopatch at Christmas along with variousshapes and boxes and a collection of decopatch tissue/papers for myself and my daughter to play with over the holidays, she made some lovely gifts for family and friends, and with half term coming up I would recommend it as a rainy day activity for children, its messy sticky fun but very easy to do, a little expensive, however buying it direct from The decopatch Place works out cheaper than Hobbycraft and you can buy single sheets of tissue, you will be surprised just how much you can do with one sheet, you could also make your own shapes or use items boxes/tins/frames that you have at home, It is fun and kids love it!
Also on my desk I have all my everyday tools and my wonderful pens, along with a few ink refills for some copics, a card made for the lovely craft group I belong to on Yuku, following the sketch that is one of this months group challenges, my small red plastic basket filled with coloured images, Oh and a box of Glimmer Mists I bought in the Hobby craft sale, (I bought a few more things but they are out of view) £2.99 for 4 bottles, ( I love a bargain!) I have never used Glimmer mists before and have no idea what I will use them on but I am sure it will be fun playing.
Lastly, a wonderful new Stickles storage that hubby made me, it was so simple, a visit to B&Q, and a rummage through their wood box, that holds all the odd ends of wood that they sell of cheaply and he found the perfect piece of wood, It cost £1 and at home after finding the correct sized drill bit, he drilled 45 holes into it, it fits into my craft cupboard (old kitchen wall unit) perfectly and it now is my perfect stickle, liquid pearls, and anything else that comes in a similar sized bottle storage, and I have lots of room for more. However it looks very plain and boring, so what can I do to it??? I have never altered anything before so any ideas (and instruction) very very gratefully received
Hope you all enjoy your weekly snoop around all the crafty desks/floors/tables or laps and remember to pop Over to The Queen of the desks at The Stamping Ground and leave Julia some love for coming up with the wonderful idea that is ‘What’s on your work desk Wednesdays’
Have a great week and thanks for your visits.
P.s Nearly forgot ‘a piccy’ of one of my fur babies, unhappy (well sulking really) because of the snow!
