 Hello peeps, Wednesday again so that must mean it is time to join Julia and bare all!!!

On my desk this week is my journal (on the right), some air drying clay shapes that are drying, the cork camera embellishments I bought at the craft show are slowly being painted black and silver (back right in front of the Xacto knife) and a high gloss gel being painted over to seal it (Judikins gel is in the blue and white pot).  On the front left is a free leaflet about gin!!  Well, it has some nice images on it so I will be cutting that up as free ephemera!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Judge Sues Dead Cop!!'  I swear I hardly ever get a nice headline!

This is a close up of some of the air drying clay shapes I have made.  The grapes and bottles are from a mould I bought at the craft show. Once they are dry I need to paint/stain them ready for use.

So, why not join us and share your workdesk, over at Julia's blog (link over on the right).

Happy crafting



  1. the clay pieces look great!! Are there any nice headlines in your pack?!! Have a great day. Helen (no #) xx

  2. L O V E the journal page. Fab. Oh dear, what was my number? ah 9!

  3. Not that many "nice" headlines in real life either... except perhaps now with the little princess in the UK... she actually made it on the front pages here too, though small in the top right corner :)

  4. Nice desk with a lot of interesting stuff. What are you going to do with the clay thingies?

  5. There's a lot of booze related stuff on your desk this week...been having fun researching??
    You asked about a cross body bag in my last post.....I just made a small lined pouch bag (no zip), with an external pocket. But the strap has to be way longer than you think. It can either be in one long piece, or I do it in two lengths and use a rucksack-type strap adjuster if it's for someone else. You can get packets of two for about £1.50.
    Hugs, LLJ 2 xx

  19. Gosh the detail n the clay is wonderful, that mould was a good buy! I can't zoom enough on this bloody iPad to assess your truth telling....from here it could be prescription for gin for all I know!!!
