Six yearsSIX Years.
My room was so untidy last night with so many projects out I had to take time to put things away and get my thoughts in order. But my head is full of ideas at the mo and all my surfaces are still pretty much covered!!

Here’s my finished bunting using craftwork cards papers and embellies and playing with my scan n cut. They are a little pink LOL and quite heavy being MDF blanks so I’m not sure whether to put them in my etsy shop – the postage might be quite high. But I will take them to my next craft sale, you never know.

I made some bunting!! Well, I decorated some MDF blanks. I cut all the letters out and made the little heart shaped border with my scan n cut. Question now is, is it finished?
The motorbike card is for a friend’s brother – The Harley Davidson theme was a special request and I didn’t have anything suitable (obviously??- well have you?) so went digital and found some cool free images – I particularly liked this one ‘cos it is quite ‘dynamic’ not just a side on view. Liked it so much I printed out another one to make up. I used print magic on various bits to make them shiny. Really brings the colour out. Could be falling in love with digital again. Here’s a (slightly) better photo.

I had a most fantastic day yesterday, meeting up with the lovely WOYWW crowd courtesy of incredible organisation by Jan and Julia (though I have to say I did have to keep chasing up the tea). A good drive home then a quick change and off to a family 50th which was a really great night with even more chatting, laughing and even dancing – I should be exhausted but I have woken up pleasantly energised and full of plans.
First off I’d thought I’d prove I could still do a blog post that wasn’t on a Wednesday.
Unfortunately, this is a picture of my desk and the wonderful swaps I received from woywwers yesterday. So I haven’t really branched out much! Still, it’s a start.
Right, going to step away from the computer, get on with some crafting and then get out in the garden. It looks set to be a lovely day!

Morning Deskers!! Well you would be forgiven for thinking that this blog is all about WOYWW for that is all I have posted lately! Anyhoo, here’s my desk this week:
Alas, still not much to show. I did a bit of stamping and colouring to make that flowery card. I have a pile of stamps to put away. Made that little bag quickly last night for a friends birthday gift – late as usual but mainly because we have not been able to get together not, for once, because I had forgotten. A couple of wedding cards to take with me to my nail lady and a stray topper that appeared from nowhere. Oh and, grins happily, a pile of ATCs!! YAY!!I’m ready for the crop apart from something to do – think it may have to be flowers.
Not much crafting to report but have had a busy week – most exciting thing, went to see the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A on Monday with DD. Ridiculous, bizarre, beautiful – BRILLIANT!! Still thinking about it.
So, why am I showing you this (rather poor) piccie of my desk? go here to find out. And, dear deskers, will try and get around as many as possible in my rather limited time today as I am out with a friend later and then have a cardmaking 101 session with another friend this evening. Well at least I’ll get to be in my craft room even if it is doubtful I get anything done!!

Here we go.
The ‘Other’ desk. Absolutely nothing of interest. Sometimes there is something to be said for a slight staging of items. Centre stage you can see my first home made die storage – I opt for magnetic sheets in clear plastic envelopes from Lily Of The Valley now as the homemade folders got rather heavy. But the original ones are still in here. Mat from my scan n cut ‘cos I have been cutting out sentiments – you can kinda see the result over to the right. I was asked for sympathy cards again so am making a bunch. Some envelopes with cardboard backings donated by a friend because it is good as a base for projects (such a womble). My hougie board as I must have been scoring something. Really nothing very inspiring, although I do have a few commissions on the go. Trusty bug over to the rear.
And that’s me for this week.
Worryingly, not an ATC in sight.
Wonder why I am showing you this? Check this out. And join in!!
