...cor blimey, I know, I am boring and predictable but... is it really Wednesday already? Really? This last week has fair whizzed past hasn't it?! Well, it is Wednesday which means that it is time for all Crafty Bloggy Buddies of the Blogasphere to unite in the wonderful event that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... devised and hosted by the fair and lovely Julia, click HERE to see all the deets and info and stuff... BTW, did you know... it is now 141 weeks old... which is erm... about... nearly three years... and yet it seems like only yesterday when it all started! Cor!!!
Anyways... regular hoppers will be aware that I turned over a new leaf last month and spouted off about being uber organised, neat, tidy etc... and... I am happy to say... I am keeping it up... really, none of the pics have been digically altered, no photowotsiting or anything like that.. I know there are doubters amongst you (Minxy) who said they didn't quite believe that I could walk on the floor, let alone see it...well, this proves that... you can! See, carpet! And tidy carpet at that!
On my desk there's a nearly finished canvas, I am just colouring some images ready to stick on... and then there's my class notes and a pile of tags to be turned into a sample... and then there's a horror of a canvas that really is not my colour scheme at all... akkk!!! Needs toning down!
And then there's the "corner" of the room with the Wall of Art feature... and can you see it? Can you? There it is, in front of Victor Vagabond... oh yesh, a signed copy of the latest book from the Wonderful Wendy Vecchi... Wendy Stamp Attic brought it back from CHA for me and I am one happy bunny... thank you both Wendy's for gifting this to me!!!
And... more news... a few weeks ago Kirsty Wiseman asked me if I would like to join in with a brand new Design Team for Fantastic Ribbons... well, how could I say no eh? Being as I love all things ribbony. So, February is the start of a brand new blog and challenge... the theme this month is to make Accessories... and erm... this is where I got carried away! The first thing I made was a bracelet... with pink and green ribbons tied on the links and buttons dangling from jump rings... and then I made a little pouchy bag for it and added a big old wired ribbon bow and some inked lace to it... and then because I was in bright and ribbony mode, I made a little brooch/medal thingy... using a blank pendant, filling it up with buttons and then adding some bright stripey Grosgrain as a bow...
And then... because that wasn't enough I altered an Optical Lens... and added a little smidge of white organza ribbon as the necklace bit.
Anyways... the fab news is that Fantastic Ribbons are giving away a fab goodie bag of bright and pretty buttons... and there are two chances to win because as well as giving one away on the DT blog, I also have a packet to giveaway too! All you need to do is leave a comment on this post... and if you want to double your chances... pop across HERE and leave another comment! Simples!! The winners will be announced on Sunday February 19th 2012.
Right.. I have taken up too much of your time with all this waffling today... time for me to get back to my desk and get my canvas finished... thanks for looking... have a FAB day! TTFN
