Morning lovely crafters and dear WOYWW friends. I can't believe it's a week since I last posted anything. To be honest I can't believe it's a week since the last WOYWW, surely it was only yesterday we were all desk hopping!! If you want to join in the fun, then pop over to see our lovely Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
It's another chilly morning here in Yorkshire. Very seasonal but it makes driving interesting. I slid all the way to drop DD off at her friend's so that they can walk to school together. When you live on a hill whichever way you go makes for an interesting experience. I love the cold weather though, at least we get the sunshine.
Here is my desk as of yesterday afternoon. It looks exactly the same this morning and won't change much until later.
I'm still prepping for my workshop tomorrow morning. I never really know numbers until a few days before so don't do the main bits until then. You can see the wreath bases cut out ready and I've just stamped up some paper to cut out a few more tattered florals. It's so much cheaper than buying or printing paper and when mixed with all the other layers looks just as good.
This is what the finished wreath will look like. I first made it this time last year for a challenge over at The Stampman and it stayed up all Christmas.
The flowers are layered up and held together with a brad and then scrunched around to give them some shape before being spayed with mica powder and glittered. Some mirricard swirls are added for a bit more shape and a nice bow finishes it off.
I've cut out flowers in blue and in the more traditional red and green so I hope they enjoy making it as much as I did.
Right, I'm off to work now and then I have a Christmas tea party this afternoon so I'll hopefully see you at a desk near you this evening.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty Wednesday.
