Hello everyone...well its now wet, windy and cold again!!! The heating has gone back on, the fluffy socks dragged out of the closet and I am contemplating making stew for supper!!
But at least I don't have to water the garden or top up the pond at the moment!!
It's Wednesday again, so its time to join Queen Julia and the other WOYWWers to have a legal snoop at desks around the world.
Here is mine
Lots of bits and bobs strewn across my desk at the moment as I am trying to have a bit of a sort out (the idea was to bring some bits and bobs to the swap table at the WOYWW crop-but I ended up passing them to a friend so I need to have another look through my drawers!!).
On the left (hidden under my archival inkpad) is a bag with my WOYWW ATC. If you'd like to receive one, please let me know (if your coming on the 1st then let me know if you'd like one and I will bring it in person-I'm not at all excited about the crop!!! Can u tell?!).
At the back of the desk is a plastic box with some die cut letters (cut from a Dorset cereal box-the card is white on the inside of the box so perfect for inking later) and my new X Cut alphabet die. Now, I had the TH Word Play die, and I loved it, especially as it would cut thicker materials....BUT..and its a big but...it didn't work! Several of the letters wouldn't cut. I sent it back, complained on many occasions and it seems I am now the only one. I got my money back (it was a LOT more expensive than the less than a tenner X cut one I now use). Its such a shame, but the X Cut one does work a treat and so far I am really pleased (not bought any of their dies before).
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are "convict cop mourns crazy romantic angel"......plain odd this week!
In a bid to clear up the room of stash I thought I would actually make a card (I know, I cannot remember the last time I made a card, I don't seem to do much paper craft these days) from the bits and bobs in my scrap box I keep on my desk
It's weird, I can have these scraps in the box for literally years and suddenly inspiration strikes and before you know it there's a card!! Why oh why doesn't it work like that more often!!
If you would like a legal snoop at desks then please come and join us here
