Happy What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday. How has your week been?
After all the Christmas presents I spent the past few months making I can finally get back to trying to find some time to experiment and play.
So I decided to treat myself as its been AGES since I have bought anything crafty that wasn't from the scrap store! So I bought a 1/2lb grab bag of lucky dips stamps from The Artistic Stamper. You don't know what you are going to get so it is a gamble.
So on my desk I am mounting the stamps. I use stick away to coat my scissors so they glide through the sticky stamp mount. I also have my Hudl2 tablet that my hubby got me for Christmas. It is perfect for listening to spotify or podcasts on whilst I am crafting.
So what stamps did I get?
I got 2 sets of letters exactly the same, whilst this was disappointing I decided to use one as a background stamp and the other set I cut up so I can use the letters individually.
I also got a large snowflake background stamp and Christmas star stamp (not sure if this will be used as its not one I would normally buy, but hey, that is the gamble).
There was a cute key, some script (nice size), some leaves, a circle of butterflies (I already have a good idea for this one) a saying "Art is Life", a bird (again, not one I can see using much-but you never know) and a paper doll articulated body stamp which I think will be great fun to use in journals.
The individual letters were taking up quite a bit of room and I was worried they would end up getting lost so I came up with a cunning plan to store them.
This is old packaging from a cutting die and I cut it down to size.
The stamps stick on there really well and it takes up hardly any space in the drawer so problem solved!
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Lost Star Burns' which is an interesting one as the Mars Rover 2 was found this week and the late great Professor Pillinger who was synonymous with the Mars exhibition came from Kingwood in Bristol (my current neck of the woods).
So why not join us over at Julia's blog (there is a link over on the right) and have a legal snoop at desks across the globe!
