WOYWW 5th May

Well it's that time of the week again, time to show what's on your workdesk, what you're working on or just finished, tidy or messy.  If you want to join in pop over and visit that wonderful woman Julia.  Mine is very messy this week.  I haven't tidied stuff since finishing my entry for the Sunday Stampers challenge; not blogged it yet but you can just see a bit of it.  I decided it was time to give my Anna Griffin box a makeover, I've only done the top for SS but will do the bottom too as they don't go together.  I also made a card for Susie + Vikki's Christmas Club (prev post) - don't want to still be making cards on Christmas Eve like last year!  You may be able to see some circles I cut out to use but changed my mind but I did colour and stamp one which is why you can see the back of an old glass chopping thing (can't call it a chopping board I suppose?) which I sometimes use instead of a non-stick mat for ink blending.  There are some paints which I used on the box lid, pinking shears in case you're wondering what the chunky looking scissors are and my MS punches stuck in what is supposed to be my.table bin 'cos now I've got 4 of them they need a new home.  The turquoise on the left is some iridescnet fabric which I've used to cut out some fabric flowers along with other fabrics (used on the card in prev post).  Someone wondered what was in the tin at the back, well it's empty I'm afraid.  It was a project on a weekend workshop in March; I probably will use it to store something - ooh perhaps my MS punches :-)
Off for a snoop at other desks ;-)

Looks and sounds as though you've been and are going to be very busy.

Very busy today anne. Hugs Pam x

Shirl said...

Good idea re chopping glass mat - I just started to use a smaller one to keep my hair straighteners on. Have thought before it would be good to have one for cutting without paying premium price but the glass can be a bit bobbly, (tempered, I suppose is the right term).

Ikki said...

Looks like you've been having a good time playing with your bits and bobs. The box lid looks great. ikki

kayc said...

Spyder said...

Well, I've looked and looooked, but I can't see the googly eyes, have you used them on something? Has the cat eaten them or are you wearing them in any way, we might need to know about???
Lovely creative-ness going on!
((Lyn))

Bettythebaglady said...

Darn it I'm so cross because I gave a cutting board like the one you're using to the charity shop and usually I think "can I use this in my craft room" first. Just had a peep at your Christmas card and it's lovely esp the fabric flower. This is one challenge I should join in on really. They've never appealed before. The tiny frame in my pic is a very old PSX stamp which I realised could be used to frame a small sentiment but not yet had a blinding flash of inspiration.Hugs BettyXXX

Angie said...

What a lot is going on,on your desk ...all looks interesting. Actually I love what you have been creating over the last few posts ... especially that tag

She said...

Hi Anne - long time no speaky! Your desk looks great. Love your Christmas Stocking card. I'll try and get back later for a proper mooch! S xx

Spyder said...

ah!! I 'see' them Anne!! Spying back at me!!

Linby said...

four pairs of scissors - Julia will be impressed! Don't think I dare use a glass mat thing, I managed to drop a pyrex bowl I had for ever on Sunday and break it. Here is a link to my latest download she is called HG Classy

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

OK, I finally made it here. Can you tell how far behind I am? Yep, this is going to take forever. Love that stocking and those flowers in the Christmas Club stocking. I can't even begin to think about Christmas when spring is just arriving. Sorry I'm so late in getting here. Hope you had a wonderful WOYWW.

Hi Anne - good to see a relatively tidy desk - from a safe angle too!!!

Thank you so much for your lovely lovely card received in the post.... really kind and thoughtful. Also thanks for the kind words and wishes left on my blog while i've been otherwise engaged so to speak!!!

This is my first bloghop in over 2 weeks so will catch up with you and your other posts again when i'm all up to date.

Take care

Tonje said...

Looks like you have had a great time at that desk! Are you tidying it between projects or do you just jump to the next one? I love the header on your blog by the way!

Ann said...

Just what I like to see! A messy desk to rummage around. You've obviously been very busy this week, and I do like the Box-Lid-Makeover!
