Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. I had to absent myself last week from the Workdesk loveliness due to real life just getting in the way, so much so that I knew I wouldn't have the time to visit many desks and I really missed being part of the gang. So I'm back in class this week and raring to go.
Here is my desk as of last night. I apologise for the poor photo, the glare from my glass mat and all those plastic bags played havoc!!! I'm fed up being so disorganised and Di has really shamed me into getting my stamps into some sort of order. I don't quite have her skill at making them look so professional but at least they are now all in a ring binder on laminated sheets where I can lay my hands on them straight away.
As you can see I don't even organise in a very tidy way, there is stuff everywhere and this morning I found a tiny flower stamp floating around my desk and I have absolutely no idea where it belongs!!
I have stuck all my H20 paints onto old CD's, a tip Sheena shared on one of her programmes, and it felt very daring throwing all the lids away but I have to admit having them like this makes them so much easier to use. I don't have a spindle to stack the CD's on yet but have added that to Hubby's to do list!!
Well I've shared mine so let's see yours. Pop over to see the Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE. She works very hard at keep her unruly class of deskhoppers in order and we thank her every week for her hard work.
Before I start checking out everyone else's desk I thought I'd just share another sample I made for Sheena's recent shows.
I have to thank the talented Barbara Gray and her pattern building for the inspiration for this one. I tried stamping just the corner from the Happiness stamp set inked with H20's and this was the result.
I used the same corner but inked with very watery paint and randomly stamped for the background and a glass bead I found at my local garden centre coloured with a promarker for the centre.
Well, it looks like it's going to be a day of April Showers here in Yorkshire so I'm off to get a cup of coffee and have a look at everyone else's desks so enjoy the rest of your Wednesday and thanks for stopping by.
