Morning dear WOYWW friends. Sorry I've been missing in action for a couple of weeks, I've been locked in my craft room amongst Christmas samples. Can you believe it in JUNE!!!!!! Anyway, I have now emerged back into the sunshine ready to share my desk with you all again.

Here is my desk as of last night. I have the day off today so hopefully I'll be back up there very soon to carry on with some painty fun.

I was watching some folk painting on the tv over the weekend and wanted to have a go. Can you see my practise sheet of card? Thankfully, I chose a wooden heart to paint so I had chance to sand it back and re do it to cover up the mistakes!!!!
This is the result.

I also had a lovely surprise last night when my daughter presented me with this fantastic miniature dress, shoes and handbag she'd made out of paper. Her Grandma bought her a book which has dress patterns in and it shows her how to piece them together as you would following a proper dressmaking pattern. Isn't it amazing?

Well that's me this week. If you want to share what's on your desk with us then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting!

Don't Mention Christmas!!!

Afternoon lovely crafty friends. What has happened to our summer?? It's been another chilly, damp day here in Yorkshire but I've been playing in my craft room so I can't complain really.

Anyway, I just popped by today to let you know that the very talented Sheena Douglass is back on your screens on C&C this Thursday with a Christmas One Day Wonder. Yes, I know it's only June but you know what it's like in the Craft Industry. The glitter comes out every year around this time.

I thought I'd share a sneaky peek with you that isn't all snow and sleigh bells. This is my favourite stamp plate from all the sets being launched and I love that you can really play with the colours.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

All A Shimmer

Evening dear Crafters. I hope you've had a lovely weekend. The weather here was lovely if a bit windy!!!!

I've just popped by to let you know Sheena Douglass is back on your telebox tomorrow at 8am and 3pm and she has the gorgeous Dyna paints back in stock.

Here is just a peek at how lovely they are, especially on black card. I teamed up the stamps with some of the stencils too to give a real fantasy look.

Right, I have a pile of ironing waiting so thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!

Morning dear WOYWW friends. Well, what a lovely week it's been with happy post falling through the letterbox, much better than bills anyday. I'll share the lovely ATC's I've received in a minute, but first things first, here's my desk as of yesterday evening.

Some Brusho experimentation after seeing the fab article by Kay Carley in this month's Craft Stamper mag. I've still got some bits I want to add to these but as DT work has taken over my craft room again it might be a while before I can get back to them. I ended up spraying water all over the magazine so it looks well used now, even though I've only had it a few days!!!!

Now, back to those ATC's. Here's my lovely crop.

Thanks so much to Angela, Annie, Twiglet, Diane, Sam, LLJ and Sandra De. Aren't they all lovely?

I was also thrilled to receive an original watercolour pear from Sandra all the way from Sydney, Australia, which I will treasure.


 Well, that's me today. If you want to share your desk with us then pop over to see the lovely Julia, HERE.

I shall be round to see what you've been up to later after work, so in the meantime, enjoy your Wednesday and Happy Crafting.
