It’s Wednesday again and I’m looking forward to do some snooping around the desks of crafters all over the world. If you don’t know what I’m talking about look at Julie’s blog at http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/
But first of all I have to reveal the mess on my own desk! Here it is.
I’ve started to put together some stuff to do another scrapbook page using the CSI challenge (http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/) . One of the requirements this time was (amongst other things) to use leather, so that piece of black you see, was once part of a little coin purse which had ripped. As a crafter you don’t throw anything away, now do you! There is also an old sketch from Page Drafts and the prepared 12x12 page on top of my laptop.
I’m very excited about some new stash I bought last week. Here is a better picture:
There is an alphabet stamp set and six packs of beautiful washi tape. The blue things are embellishments in the shape of fishies. As I’m a Christian and the fish is a Christian symbol, I can certainly find use for those. I bought the whole lot at Lidl’s, a European supermarket that changes their non-food range every week and occasionally sell craft items. When they do, I’m straight there as they do nice things. I’m particularly pleased with the washi tape as these are lovely, and up until now I’ve only been able to buy tape online.
My last photo has nothing to do with crafting but is something typical about living here in rural Spain.
It’s a string with dried fruit on it. My neighbour gave it to me when she heard we were on a diet and couldn’t eat sweets or chocolates. Apparently they are small fruit that look like a small apple. These have been dried and then strung up. We occasionally pull one off and eat it. They’re very sweet and yummy.
That’s it for today. Have a good week all of you. I’ll try and visit as many of you as I can over the course of the week.
PS I've just realised I forgot to reduce my photos in size. I do apologise. I just hope my page doesn't take a long time to load....I really haven't got time to take them down, reduce them and then put them back on.... sorry.
