Hello friends, bloggers, followers and crafty peeps
Well, here we are again, another Wednesday is upon us, and the weeks are now free falling into you know what…
A couple of times this past week, I’ve attempted to start my Christmas cards, but I just can’t seem to get myself going. What is wrong with me? I sit at the desk and stare for a while, I even move things about a bit then sort something else out – it’s all procrastination basically. Why? Part of me thinks it’s because I need a kick up the bum, another part of me doesn’t want to ‘fail’ and make bad cards – now how crazy does that sound. I am my own worst enemy.
Here is the desk anyway:
Here is the top of my printer where I've piled up some papers I got from the My Craft Studio warehouse which is basically down the road from me. I always like to get some plain colours when down there filling my box for £5. You may not see it but I've had to sort them out into colours again. I just cannot help myself.
I was asked a couple of times last week what the green collapsible thing next to the paper was – I also have a blue one which is currently housing my Promarkers (until I find a better alternative solution). They are from IKEA and you got three in a set. Someone very kindly gave me these a while ago when I went to an evening craft class. They were from the children’s area, but I’ve never seen them myself so I assume they are an older line. While they are collapsible – you’ll be lucky if you can get them to stay collapsed, unless you put a copy of ‘War and Peace’ on top of them. I use the green one as bin for my bits of table top waste.
This is the first time in ages (or ever) that I’ve managed a decent ‘aerial’ shot! This is the left /centre of the desk. While doing my ‘procrastinating’ earlier, I coloured up one of my Tiddly Ink digis – it’s long, long overdue since the last time I coloured anything let alone a digi. I really tried hard to do some light and dark shading of the dress and ended up using my pencils as I wasn’t satisfied with the look my alcohol pens were giving me. The orange paper is also a paper from Tiddly Inks, which I put back through the printer to print a spiders web on – also a Tiddly Ink.
There are so many challenges out there with the Halloween theme, so I thought I might see if I can’t join in. I know the design team at Tiddly Inks is awesome, and I’ll never come up to their standards, but you don’t get anywhere if you don’t at least try! The die is from Spellbinders labels 15.
The card on the right of the desk is made using an image from My Craft Studio CD and some die-cut leaves from Paper Flower Expert.
Nothing much here apart from some kitchen roll centres. I’ve been saving – cos, boy – do we get through kitchen roll…
I’m sure I saw something they’d be useful for – but I can’t remember, so I’m saving them anyway in case I do…
That’s your lot. I’m sure many will appreciate my unusually short post.
If you want to know why I am showing you my desk while explaining what’s on it – pop over to our weekly host, the fabulous Julia, and she’ll explain all about WOYWW. That stands for What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday by the way. It does exactly what it says on the tin…
Before you go though, I’ll just let you leave me a little comment. I’m kind like that ((winks)) ;0)
Happy desk hopping
