Hi desk hoppers, it’s Wednesday again! (If you have no idea what WOYWW Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday is, go to Julia’s blog:http://www.stamping-ground.blogspot.com.es/ and read all about it.)
Here is my desk as it was last night around midnight. A total mess! So much stuff on the go.
The left hand side of my desk still has Christmas stuff on it as I haven’t quite finished my Christmas cards. There is a stamp set and a small paper stack from 2011 (another old magazine freebie). The 12x12 paper is ready to do a layout for the CSI challenge that I like doing (http://csicolorstoriesinspiration.ning.com/). The colours this week are really nice and there is a sketch by Em Stafrace to guide me.
On the right hand side of my desk you can see my lovely Anna Griffin ruler and a ‘holly’ punch. On my closed laptop there are some insoles I was cutting out. (I have bought two new pair of bootties and I like insoles in them. That is more comfortable.) You can also see four postcards that I received this week. I belong to a club called Postcrossing. (www.postcrossing.com) There are around half a million members all over the world and when I request (online) a random address to send a card to, someone else (also random) will send me a card. I have received hundreds of cards over the years. I have my favourites. I like images of doors and windows.
Here are four of my Christmas cards. The bottom right hand one is made with that 6 or 7 year old kit I showed you last week, the two left hand ones are cheat cards. (images cut from old cards and re-used).
My little grandson is doing fine. He is home, drinking well, sleeping well and already putting on weight. Thank you for all your good wishes.
I’m still crafting in the pantry, it’s nice and cosy. The building of the house is coming on nicely. We are building on a hill/cliff. The plot narrows towards the top, resulting in a small strangely triangular shaped bedroom on the top floor.
But to make up for it, the window (and view) are spectacular.
To finish: here is one of the cards (from Germany). The quote is loosely translated: Friendship is a door between two people. It can sometimes creek, it can jam, but it is never locked.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. As most of you know, I take all week to look at your desks. I love to read what you're up to, watch photos, follow links and look at earlier posts.
Have a good week and CU next Wednesday!
