What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #454

It's quite clear actually, although I may have cunningly shown you the best bit. Finally seem to be catching up with life, classes and commissions.

Received these beauties on Monday and have been restraining myself from even opening the packaging until other stuff is done. Which it now is.

Today is a more or less at home day for me. I need to at least start that pile of ironing at some point - an iron has not been lifted in this house (by me) for over two months. Which does  kinda beg the question what is in that pile? But apart from that my obligations are few. And the rest of the week stretches ahead gloriously uncluttered by things I don't really want to do. Bliss.

I'm showing my desk as part of WOYWW a weekly blog hop hosted by the lovely Julia. Everyone is welcome.

So I'll be in and out today, nosing around and hoping my comments get through - I received a flurry of emails saying they hadn't last time, I'm not sure what all that was about but will try and check back this week.

Hopefully by next week I may have a little project to show you.

Now where to start?

Have a lovely Wednesday!!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday some number or other...

Huh. Been trying to add a picture since 9.30 am. In the end I emailed it to myself. This is why I no longer blog!!



Was it worth it? Not a lot to show, been gelli printing. Big box behind sapphire is in the WIP box. Haven't been in there for months. Plastic container to right are my prepped and to be prepped class projects. Empty cup of tea.

It is now 4.03pm (and still light lol). I probably won't get round anyone now, as I still haven't made OH's birthday card (for tomorrow), I've been faffing with this all day.
And I don't know yet if it will load, fingers crossed. But hopefully I made it guys! How you doing?

Craft Club Cards

Busman's holiday at the weekend as I went to Claire Bear's Craft Club for a crafty afternoon. 

We made two cards. The first was a twist and pop card, which I've been itching to try (you know how I love a kinetic card). It was certainly easier being shown how to do it than having to figure it out myself!!















































Really taken with these and have made a few blanks up to be decorated while I had the instructions firmly in my head!

Next we made a circle rocker stepper card. As you can probably see I got rather taken by one of the stamp sets Claire had brought and used it for both cards. I am entering this one in the current Try It On Tuesday Challenge which is 'Anything but a square'. Think this counts!!

See ya soon.

What's On Your Wokr Desk? Wednesday #398

Here's my desk this chilly, bright, Wednesday morning. I've been prepping for an ATC class with my cardmaking group in a couple of weeks (yes, I'm getting bored of the cards). The card at the top is to demonstrate to the sceptic in the group that they can be used as toppers - not something I've ever done before but I rather like this card. The ubiquitous list of course, suppose I'd better look at that in a moment and a few essential tools. This is actually quite tidy for me.

So, I've not been around much lately, and I do have a lot to get through today sooooooo I probably won't get around to everyone's desk today, it'll be mainly touching base with old friends. But I will pop over to yours if you visit tho it may be tomorrow.

Oh, you don't know what I'm talking about? Well, WOYWW is a group where crafty peeps have a snoop around each other's desks every Wednesday to see what they're up to. Been doing it for years the nosy beggars. Pop over here to find out more and join in why don't ya?

Happy WOYWW!!

Atishoo! Atishoo! for Try It On Tuesday

In by the skin of my teeth but I am going to try really hard to do at least one challenge a month this year! 

So I had a look at Try It On Tuesday where I used to be a regular – hi girls! and the challenge was to use tissue. 

I have used a printed tissue to get the image for my topper.  Started off bright and fresh this one but became increasingly grungier as time went on, and the light’s been so bad he last couple of days I’m not sure about the colours! 

 Still, might be another technique to try out with one of my craft groups.

What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday?

 

IMG_2345Or more correctly Tuesday as I took the photo yesterday to allow it time to do whatever it does before appearing in my photostream. If you are wondering why I am posting this, get on over here to find out.

So ‘Hi!’ folks. Been MIA again. Not sure what I’m doing but I always seem to be busy!!

Christmas is arriving with a bang, chez ashplant as the Christmas Craft Fair Season gets going. Although honestly I think they are a bit of a waste of time and effort.  I have been making wreaths and my lovely new gemini (you can just see it at the top of the picture there) has been working overtime cutting out greenery. Great little machine but the plates are getting very bendy!!

Stilll plodding along with my craft classes, which I think are a better use of my time. We made this circle book on Saturday and everyone seemed very pleased with it.

Anyhoo, hope all is well in your neck of the woods and I’ll try to visit as many of you as possible. My days however have a habit of getting derailed and if I tell you my son is on leave, my husband is working from home, my daughter is working nights so currently sleeping and I have 3 guys putting up a fence (daughter not pleased) you can see that I might not be getting the quiet day I had planned.

 

Hey ho, Happy WOYWW whatever you are doing. I’ll leave you with the view from my window which I took yesterday, lovely autumn colours in the distance which look even more striking today with a beautiful blue sky!!
