Hey Bloggers, howya doin' this week?
This is my offering this week - not as neat and tidy as last week huh? Thats because I actually have a WIP which i'll come back to later. There's a card in the background which I have entered into a couple of challenges - see my last post for further details. I'm pretty happy with the card, even though its not my usual style... although I like to think I don't have a style and will tturn my hand to anything that is required at the time... a bit like most crafters can, but some have a distinctive style to their work.
Anyway - the chest on the desk is still working out very well for me so i've not changed that since last week... On top of the chest though, I have a new pen holder which is circular and enables me to see all my pens, pencils and some of my tools easier. This cost me £1 from 'The Works' bookshop which sells quite a lot of craft and painting stuff. On the right of the desk you can just probably spy one of my 'My Craft Studio' CD ROMS. Yesterday I decided to uninstall the ones I had on my laptop and reinstall them all. I have 12 MCS CD's so far, so wanted to make sure the all the artwork was in the same place instead of here ther and everywhere!!
Right, the WIP... My little niece - who only turned 3 week before last started nursery in the mornings, so I thought I'd send her a little card of encouragement... she keeps telling her mum she's gone to big school because she attends a private day nursery on the odd days where, to her, they are all babies now.
Anyway, I'd printed all the DP's out with the intention of putting the card together but when I came to do it, couldn't find the papers or digi images... later on, the cat (Tiggy) decided to move and revealed where she'd been cat napping... yep, on the papers i'd printed!!!
Talking of firsts, my boys went back to school today. DS1 has dropped two if his subjects and has picked another up. DS2 said it was boring and complained about the big diary they've been handed today. He'll just have to get over it.
And... another very important first is... I went back to work this afternoon on a phased return. But that's it for this week. Thats why my post for WOYWW is quite late.
Below is a closer picture of the WIP. I will post the end result card, but for now, I want to tell you that the pencils DP is from a Funky Hand CD, the chalkboard background is a digi from the Tiddly Inks store, and so is the 'Back to school' girl holding her books - even though I know my Niece isn't quite at this stage yet!!!
Do you want to know what all this 'showing your desk/workplace' is about??? Then hop over to Julia's blog which is called the Stamping Ground and she'll reveal all about the blog hop to see loads of desks in differing stages of disaray, mid project... having said that, it might not even be a desk - there have been floors, washing machines, bedroom dressing tables, dining table. What ever takes your fancy. If you want to join in - by either visiting or showing what you have - take a pic, tell us about it and link it to Julias and you'll have fellow bloggers leave you some love... not bad eh?
Thanks for reading - please leave a comment to say you've been - then come back again. hugs, Paula x x x
