What's on my desk

Today is Wednesday and many bloggers do a Workplace Wednesday or My Desk on Wednesday or something similar. I don’t know how to link up with these initiatives but I’ll show you my desk nonetheless. You can see what a craft room in a cave looks like and also have a peep at my next lay out.
This is my next project. A lovely photo of me and my step-daughter Tracey in a colour scheme suggested by this week’s Color, Stories and Inspiration. CSI for short.  CSI is a weekly scrapbooking challenge that inspires you to try new colors schemes and to tell your stories. Their Case Files provide inspiration that will get you thinking about scrapbooking in a whole new way.
A new Case File opens for investigation every Friday evening at 6:00 p.m. EST. Come join the design team and CSI members in a live chat every reveal night!
CSI is all about inspiration and sharing and, most important, fun!
This is what I bought this week: decorative thread. It’s meant for making bracelets, but I’m sure I can do nice things with them in my scrapbooking. The red on the right is exactly the red colour of the CSI challenge, so I might do some real stitching!
I’ve been experimenting with paper flowers. This one is my first attempt, inspired by a tutorial by sreechinnu2007 published on YouTube in 2012. In April I will start my first craft workshop for women in the village and I have been asked to do flowers, so they can cover the big wooden cross with paper flowers for the festival in May. So I’m practicing. I think this one is very pretty. Next I’ll try a smaller version of this.
A last glimpse, just to show you my birthday cards (It was my birthday last Sunday).

Thank you for looking. Have a good day wherever you are in the world. 
God Bless and until next time.
