A desk, some stuff and today an early cuppa as I am going to 'try' to have a day just for me 
(I say 'try' as I am sure we now how it goes, stuff happens, other stuff gets in the way, yadda, yadda...but I am going to 'try'). 

 It can only mean one thing..."What's on your Workdesk Wednesday".

The desk is still really clean from last week (as it has not been used) but I am finally putting the finishing touches to a card/voucher holder for my father in law's birthday.

To the left is my (now very dirty) stamp cleaner.  A paint spreader from poundland that Shaz Silverwolf recommended ages ago, and it does work a treat.  As you can see it is well loved but I may have to treat myself to a new one (after I find out whether it cleans up ok, after is a pound to replace it!!).

Another bargain is my stickles holder to the right, this is a nail varnish/makeup acrylic holder once again from poundland and fits stickles perfectly.

My 'Man Bites Dog' cards this week are nicer (at last!!) "Burns Lover Weds Tourist".

Not much else to say...apart from huge love to Julia, Queen of WOYWW and big love to LLJ who is temporarily buffing the crown (I have a vision in my head as I write it...believe me you don't want to see it....but those of you who know me/met me at crops will know the face I am pulling as this vision flashes across my mind!!).

Happy crafting


  1. Hahahahahahahahahaha - that's made me spit coffee out cos it made me laugh so much. Buffing the Tiara could be an amazing euphemism :-D Lolololololol!!
    I can't think of anything to write now! You're a mischievous gal and I love you!
    Hugs, LLJ 11 xx

  2. Lol at you Kyla, that buffing the tiara did make me laugh- as much because yes, I CAN see your face! The paint spreader does wash, but after a few it looses some of its fluffy bits. Word of warning- double check the next one you buy- I grabbed one, and it was more like suede than the original fluffy one, and not as good. Had to go get another!Have a great week, Hugs Shaz #19xxx

  3. That's the 2nd good tip I've picked up from WOYWW visits today.....we paint with those pads and have a couple of spare ones where they were bought and didn't fit our handles so guess where they're going to end up!
    (1st tip was you can get NEC entrance tickets using Tesco vouchers!!)
    Buffing the Tiara....the mind boggles!!!
    Happy WOYWW

  4. The only way my desk seems to stay clean us when it's not in use as well!
    Have a great day.

  9. Good morning and belated WOYWW. Love the sticklers idea you have mine are hanging in a wire bin above the lights on my desk.
