Hello just a quick update and no desk as its covered in work, but aware my recipient has now received the anniversary atc etc so thought i could do a quick show.

These were the ATCs i made with a thick paint through a stencil to create a background.

Also the local postcard option, i couldn't find one so on one of my walks at a weekend i walked to Kingswood Museum and the 18th century 30 foot high statue of Neptune known locally as the Warmley Giant (as its in Warmley nr Bristol) and i sat there sketching and painting it.

Its a great walk and some amazing places to explore. 

Only a quick update and no MBD cards this week as totally buried under work so can't share, but i didnt want to miss out on this weeks hence this quickie

Happy woyww

 Hello peeps, so I finally got a few days off work last week and was able to walk away from the screens! Out in the country with no wifi access and poor phone signal and the allotment, where your hands are so dirty you daren't touch a screen!  I also got some happy mail!  Thanks Susan Renshaw, we swapped postcards and ATC for the anniversary and I was so chuffed to get someone from Australia.

On my desk this week (it was last night as the desk is filled with work otherwise) I decided to have a play with some pre stamped images and colour in with my inktense pencils.

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Teen Heiress Falls for Convict' - ooh!

I also spent a lot of last week preserving with rhubarb and strawberries off the allotment (we picked over 5lb strawberries in one day!!).  I made Rhubarb chutney (in total I have 41 jars made!!), Strawberry Jam and Strawberry vinegar and also a big double batch of elderflower cordial.  I will try to remember to upload a couple of photos in the next couple of days.

So, what's on your workdesk this Wednesday?

 Hello, bit of a late update from me as had a few days off work so don't do much screen time when i am off work! So, my desk this week was my kitchen!! Had loads of strawberries both #yellowsticker and also off the allotment so started my first batch of strawberry vinegar. Each year I make this and also elderberry vinegar. They are sweetened like Victorian shrubs and are great for salads, cooking and also mocktails adding some to sodawater etc.

No 'Man bites dog' cards (sorry Mary Anne) as they are upstairs and totally forgot!! 

So, what's on your workdesk Wednesday?

Hello peeps, need to start with an apology as the pay the bills job is busy (and probably will be for the next few months) so I have been a bit slack in desk returns and even blogging myself.  However, I was chuffed to get some lovely post in the past week.

The postcard and ATC on the left is from the lovely Morti (LOVE the fact that the castle isnt in Camborne but still its close by so they included it!!).  In the middle is a postcard and handpainted ATC from the lovely Jan and on the right is a lovely ATC (with a great stamp saying "Today is a great day", yes it is) from Bishopsmate.

I also remembered my "Man Bites Dog" cards and this weeks headline is "Star Actor Snubs Judge" - ooh I wonder if that would refer to one of those TV shows like "The Masked Singer" etc???

So, What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday?
