Welcome to hump day and "What's on your Workdesk Wednesday" when we all join the lovely Julia to show our desks.

On my desk this week is my scrap box.  
Now this is NOT as bad as it looks (honest).  The back quarter of the box is filled with papers I have removed from some books to use in my crafts.  Now, I know this can be a sensitive subject, some do not like old books being repurposed.  However, these books would have been pulped as they were in the 'bin ends' at the charity shop and I would rather that some of the pages are used again rather than just pulped.  

I am also trying to sort out the papers into similar colours and I use my trusty plastic wallets for this, but I have gotten slack over the past month or so and just chucked them in so it's time to sort them out!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week....seriously, I randomly draw about 6-8 and use between 3-5 to make a sentence and they really are randomly drawn...
'Angry Thousands Drops Thug Tycoon' - PLEASE drop him like a hot penny!!!!

  3. After volunteering at Oxfam's bookshop in Marlborough, I too would rather see books used for something than just going to pulp, so you carry on having fun!
