Wednesday again?!?!  I am sure, a couple of years ago before I started this that weeks didn't fly past as quick!  I blame Julia!!

So, this week over on WOYWW there are desks all over the globe, tempting me to....'look at me!  I am shiny, I am clean and organised' and other that say ''re a bit like me, grubby but well loved'!!!

So, on my grubbby desk this week?

On the right is my ever expanding scraps box that is starting to take over again, I need to challenge myself to make some cards JUST FROM THE SCRAPS......but that takes a lot of effort and I need to be in the right frame of mind!! (so not this week then!)

The rest of it is, lets be honest, junk left over from a previous card making session!!! (like I said, grubby!)

The other week I had some leather bits left over and drying, these are a couple of leather mushrooms I made.  I found instructions and photo's in a magazine I bought in Paris a couple of years ago that I kept hold of but was lucky enough to scrounge some leather off cuts so thought I would have a go, not bad, I think they need a little tweaking but now I am on the lookout for red leather offcuts to make toadstools!!!

I will keep this short as there are many desks to see, please pop over to Julia's blog for a legal snoop around desks across the globe.

Happy crafting

  2. Fab mushrooms and super scraps. I had to give in and 'sort' mine as they were taking over the room in their envelopes stuffed full. Even had to throw some away, shock horror, but needed space for my ever growing new stash! Take care, enjoy desk hopping! Zo xx 62
