WOYWW - Watch the birdie!


Before I show my desk I'm showing piccies of my birdie that several people wanted to see when completed - have to say I do rather like him myself ;) His poor little legs wouldn't hold him so I made a weighted stand out of a tub that once held vitamin tablets covered with Ten Seconds Studio metal tape sheet and coloured with alcohol inks (the pic of this is a bit blurred!) I stuck some thin cutouts underneath the tape; you can make out the butterfly on the front here. He measures 8 and half inches from his feet to the top of his head and his stand is 2 and half inches high (the pics don't give an indication of that really). I've also uploaded a pic of the journal I was working on last week.

And finally the desk -Tadaa! My sewing box is still on there even though I haven't done any sewing since finishing Halloween costumes on Saturday. Don't know if you've noticed but most of the stuff at the back of the desk hasn't moved for weeks even though it isn't home for some of it :-o)) As I'd used the snowman for the Sunday Stampers challenge this week I thought I'd make a few more as I do like this image - it's one of the 'around-2-it' stamp sets by Butterfly Kisses which have a front and back view for the main stamp so makes them ideal for aperture cards. There's also a sheet of snowflakes on the desk that I cut out yesterday using my Robo. It's only tidy at the front, most of the mess is at the back and most of it isn't showing here LOL
Check out Julia's blog for more desks to have a nosey at :) and if you're brave enough, let's have a look at yours!

LOve the birdie! Great idea for the base too. Your desk sure looks tidy..bet once the sewing box gets moved to the floor, you'll bein full on 'fill it with stuff' mode. Please say you will!!
