Wednesday again!!!! Who stole the last 7 days??? Come on, own up!!!! Well, here's what's on my desk this morning- prepare yourself, it's not pretty!!!!
There are some cards I've finished and should put away before they get ruined. Bottom left is some square of wood my husband has cut for me to mount a stamp or two on, and on the right is the tub I've found to house the ink blending tools he made last week. There's also a tissue box I'm planning to alter.
In all honesty I haven't spent much time at my desk this week. I'm not feeling 100%, so I've retreated to the safe world of Promarkers and stamped images, and I've been colouring on a little table in front of the TV. I've just not felt up to anything more adventurous or taxing, and it's always helpful to have a stock of images to make cards with. So here's my temporary workdesk.
Lots of pots and tins of Promarkers (do you think I have too many???) I plan on having them all in Lyle's treacle and golden syrup pots, but we're not eating it quickly enough, so I've had to improvise with plastic tubs in the meantime. I will be able to break the colour families down more specifically, so it'll be easier to grab the pot and find the pen I need. I've got some nice images to colour.. Love the frog especially- that's one of Kay's stamps, and I must stamp him up a few more times when I visit her next! It's lovely having friends with stamp collections, it's like a huge extension of my stamps!!!!
I also thought I'd show off my finished stamp storage- apologies if I've already bored you with it, but I'm totally in love with it........
Isn't it gorgeous. Lots of room to buy more stamps, and I've managed to fit in my punches and brayers as well. The boxes all pull out and are A4 sized, so there's a LOT of stamps in there........ I'd love to have them on shelves on display, but I think I'd need all the walls in the house!!
Righto, if you fancy a nose at some more desks, head over to Julia's blog for a lovely long list of wonderful crafty desks. Bliss!
