Happy What's on your workdesk Wednesday. So my desk this week, no crafting just a mess! Been a bit busy so i plan on tidying it this weekend ready for starting to think about any Christmas makes and also the final push to catch up with my inktober tags, determined to finish them this weekend!
Decided after this weeks news in the UK that i wouldnt do the headline from Man Bites Dog cards! Think we have had enough of that this week!
On a more pleasant note, had to pop into Bath after work last night and spotted some lovely lights so thought i would share.

Hello fellow deskers for what's on your workdesk Wednesday. This week the chaos on my desk is my 365 journal as i need to set the pages up for Novemeber (and catch up on inktober too). I am waiting for the gesso to dry before i can spray the inks across and add all the squares to write each day
I thought i would also share the harvest from the allotment. These are my winter squash, not as many as previous years but they should last us a couple of months.
Also my runner beans drying that i will use to create new plants next year.
Hoping i can catch up on inktober later today and probably over the weekend so will post a catch up soon.

Morning all, on my desk this week-my Inktober tags as I am SO behind but I have taken part for at least 8 years so I am determined to catch up, I am not too far off (think I got up to day 16 so not too bad). The past 6 years I have completed them on tags as I find it so much easier to hang them on a ring and then hang them from my desk. I love looking back at the ones i have done in the past.
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Nurse Drops Feds Drugs' - well, that is certainly a headline!!
To answer Julia's question from last weeks blog - the glass jar...yes I glued several homemade flowers to the lid and its filled with various sugar free sweets! Well spotted :-)
So, What's on your workdesk wednesday?

A quick update for What's on your workdesk Wednesday. Didn't manage to do all my return visits last week, apologies time just got away from me. On my desk this week is just making a quick gardening card for an office colleague who is leaving. Nothing else on the desk crafty as not had time to even so inktober yet (plan on catching up with that this week as i have taken part for years).
Hope your all ok and happy WOYWW

Happy What's on your workdesk Wednesday. Need to fess up, this isnt today's desk but a few days ago. I was making a card for my neices 8th birthday party this weekend so wanted to keep it quiet until she had seen it.
This was the card i made. Alcohol inks and sprays with glass starts and a moon. I had wanted to add some foiling but for the life of me i couldn't remember what to do!! I have rolls of thin foil but searched online and no joy!!
So what's on your workdesk?

Morning all. not my usual desk as most of my non working days this time of year is taken up with harvesting and preserving. Gotta love all the end results of the hard work through out the year. I make lots of jams, chutneys, cordials, fruit vinegar's etc to see me through the year and now made some piccalilli (made it a couple of years ago for the first time). Didn't have any cauliflower (the plants take up too much room on my allotment so I tend to buy them as and when we need one) so bought one from the greengrocers to add to my own produce of tomatoes (red and green), yellow courgettes, onions, garlic and beans. The piccalilli is a little darker than usual as didn't have enough sugar so had to add some dark brown sugar but sure it will be ok.

Happy What's on your workdesk Wednesday. Just back from my summer break from work and managed to go to london for a few days. Lots of new street art, art exhibitions and of course a visit to Kew gardens
That means i am a bit behind, so on my desk is my 365 journal and my bullet journal as both need to be sorted so I can catch up for my October entries. Also need to catch up with Inktober as really behind on those too.
My 'man bites dog' cards this week "bored blonde suspect angry (angered?) Thousands'!! Well, will watch the court reports with interest!
So, what's on your workdesk?
