I can't believe it's been another week! Here is a photo of my desk today ready for WOYWW. If you haven't come across this before, pop over to the blog (there is a shortcut on the right) there are loads of confessions of messy desks, and quite a few clean ones (not sure if that's the sign of a sick mind, I mean, a clean and tidy craft sick is that!!).

So, what's on my desk today?

The box is a cat food pouch box (out of my friend, Becky, recyling bin!) which I am applying a couple of layers of gesso, then I plan to decorate it and use it to sell my cards out of for charity.

On the left are some air drying clay hearts and keys I made ready to make some valentines cards, I am colouring them, distressing with coloured waxes and then plan to apply some Judikins Diamond Glaze to seal everything.

This is the Buddhist card I made for my mum's birthday this week, I bought the Kanban set at the last craft fair I went to back in the Autumn adding a gem brad and a gold rub-on sentiment.
This is the neclace I made for my sister-in-law for Christmas. The charms are purchased, but I made the dog tag with her name on with PMC silver clay, using letter stamps in the style of that great rock and roll music establishment CBGB's

and finally these are 2 of the scarfs I made for Christmas presents that I promised I would share with you (the yarn was a previous WOYWW entry)

Well, I am shattered, so I am poking off early to crash on the sofa.
Happy crafting
