WOYWW #148 - Ready for Easter

Well here's my desk looking nice and tidy but it's a work day today and I cleared away last night before I went to bed. Here are all the bits for my kiddies crafting session today, we are making exploding boxes. I do like to be prepared, just need a box for the butterfllies.  What you can't see are the little bags of chocolate eggs for the Easter Egg hunt on Saturday painstakingly filled by yours truly (with only a few samples on the way - a girl's gotta keep up her strength). They are on the floor out of shot - they look so cute!!

The strange little bodyform is a WIP - I'm really not sure where I'm going with this one but  just keep adding more paper to it every day. Might be done by next Wednesday.

I also had a bit of a spend up on ebay and have some new Tim Holtz stamps to play with. In fact I've had them nearly a week and they are still on my desk. Still in fact in their wrappers. I'm guessing with the weather changing so dramatically just in time for the holidays I may get some time in my craft room over the weekend!!

If you haven't heard of WOYWW before a) where have you been? b) pop over to see Julia at The Stamping ground, join in with the blog hop and add a piccie of your own desk if you dare so we can return the favour. I will be taking the tour this evening as I'm at work till 8. Last week was a disaster as I messed up my link. Kudos to those who still found me but by the time I realised I was off doing something else and didn't really get round many desks. Must do better.
Have a great day, and Happy Easter everyone!!  Cindy xx

Cindy I totally get that Easter is pastel shades and your desk has a real Easter feel, but I cannot for the life of me work out Why pastel shades = Easter? Cute bunnies???
Dyed eggs???

Love you desk, Cindy, lots of pretty things on it. Isn't odd that we crafters welcome the bad weather as much as the good because it's a heaven sent excuse to stay in our craft rooms and play :) Hope you have a lovely Easter - the egg hunt sounds like fun. Elizabeth x #147

Erika said...

Cindy looks like you are going to be busy making with Easter in mind. It all looks very organised.
Have a great Easter, hugs,
Erika.

nice colorful flowers and bits on your desk. I like this time of year because of all the color. Have a happy Easter! Vickie #60

Shoshi said...

Cindy, your desk is a feast of colour this week. Quite mouthwatering - and that's without the mini-eggs! Pastel is the colour for Easter always, I think, because of the fresh spring flowers which tend to be more delicate than the summer ones.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. The knitting progresses slowly, but no hassle - just relaxing to do while watching TV etc. I'm very excited about the paper, and want to do lots more!

Happy belated WOYWW,
Shoshi #25

Your desk says Easter. I love pastel colors all year long, but Spring, Easter and the birth of a new growing season seems to be the best time for pastel colors. I'm sure the little ones will love the exploding boxes.

Jo Capper-Sandon said...

Nice new stash to play with there! Love your tags on the previous post too - have only stamped the reflections stamp and embossed my tag so far hopefully will get chance to catch up when the children break up (in about an hours time.....). This new sewing thingy I bought is a nice new little hobby that I really dont have time for either but hey ho I couldnt say no!!! Thanks for visiting me and have a great Easter - Sunshine Girl.

The Easter card making session is open on your desk! Me, I've tossed in the towel for this year. Great gobs of pastel and pretty flowers you have there. Lovely new Tim stamps you have their. I perused his Compendium of Curiosities II last night. *sigh* So much Tim goodness in their, makes me wish I could actually do some of his style. Happy WOYWW! I haven't visited your blog in awhile. I see some tags I must see more of.
