Here we are again – another Wednesday, so it must be the fabulous Ms Dunnit’s WOYWW!!!
I’m afraid I’d had a really messy session with acrylics and sponges and tidied up a bit before I took this photo – shame on me, lol. BUT it’s still very active and not over tidy, despite the fact that my other half has booked a few weeks off work, so we’re going chasing photos here there and everywhere, when the weather allows – AND it’s because I needed the space to do something else – not because i wanted to tidy up specifically for the photo.
NOT that the glorious North West of England allows very much when it comes to good weather – in fact, we’ve hardly seen the sun for over 5 weeks now. It’s been grey, dismal and even cold at times since June!!! It CAN be a little frustrating when I read the Southern and Eastern girls’ blogs, saying how hot they’ve been – sigh!!! So we’ve also been over to Wales, chasing the sun when they’re lucky enough to have it – not too far from us, though so not difficult.
Anyway, here’s my semi tidied desk (which means sponges under desk, acrylics thrown in box behind me and scratch paper assigned to bin) with lots of stuff in progress.
I’ve moved a lot of my mounted stamps into their respective homes, although I’ve still kept out the bigger ones I use a lot for background work – I have a special box, kept in a special place (the floor, he, he) for the rest of the ones I reach for on a regular basis.
Ma Vinci’s humongous alphabet stamps are out there in their bag- for my alphabet pages and postcards but also for some personal journalling I’ve been doing. If you look closely, you’ll also see Saturday’s Stamp Club project, half completed because I want to modify it a bit before I carry on. It’s a fab concertina envelope book, taught by the lovely Gill, who doesn’t blog YET.
In my WOYWW easel is an old vintage card I made about 5 years ago – out because it’s a reminder of something for another project I’m intending to make. There are also stamps for a DT project I have to make this week and some backgrounds and stamps, waiting to be put together, including the acrylic stuff I was playing with. If you look carefully, you’ll see the punchinella (sequin waste) peeping from the open drawer – I use that a lot to fill in and to do edges of pages and backgrounds, so there’s always a piece around, along with other bits of mesh and ribbon I use for the same thing.
I’ll be out early tomorrow, so I’m scheduling this cos we’re off chasing steam trains again, then perhaps on to see some Red Kites, although that may have to wait until later in the week, depending on other things.
If you wanna join the rest of us and
snoop peek at other desks, why not head on over to the lovely Julia’s blog and follow the links – it’s a fab way to spend half a day, lol – or more!!! Thanks, Julia.
