WOYWW & Giveaway....

... Wednesday! Already! How can it be huh? One minute it is Sunday and then the next it is Wednesday which means that it is time, once again, for the hop of the week to commence... namely, What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday... hosted and devised by the inimitable Julia... hop on over HERE to see what this is all about. Being as I didn't get chance to get around to everyone last week, I thought I would have a little giveaway, open to all who comment on this post... the usual randomly picked winner jobbything... one person will win this piece that I made at the weekend using Studio 490 stashly delights, the winner will be announced next Wednesday :O))




So... this past week has seen me return to my slatternly ways... yes folks, the halo has well and truly slipped and the Room of Stash is once more the Room of Trash... I blame the sample making frenzy last week... but the truth is, I just haven't had the will to start... cleaning! I haven't even emptied my bin (not to mention the jar of mucky water... tsk tsk)



Featuring on my desk is... a chunk of wood that Grim had cut up the other day to test his power-sawthingymajig... and when I spotted said pieces of wood I said I needed them... Grim looked at me as if I had lost the plot (he does that quite often though so nowt new there eh?) When I explained about painting and altering he sort of got what I meant so he kindly screwed the two pieces together to make a shape... which is mid way thru the transformation... ok, I have painted it with Traditional Tan paint and then started playing with metal and flowers so ... erm... I haven't got much further.


Right.. I best go, I have more acupuncture later and... ouch, I have been in agony this past few days... not sure if it is over-doing it at the weekend or a reaction to the long-pointy-sharp-things (am not going to say needles again.... whoops!) Thanks for looking... have a goodly day! TTFN

Good Morning Hels, what a brilliant giveaway, the colours would suit me fine. Those flowers are to die for. Surely Grim should no by now that crafters keep everything ,even pieces of wood. LOL. You cannot create without a mess to go with it, part of the course I say. Hope you get on Okay to-day. Hugs Rita xx

Gabrielle said...

Tee hee! I love how you stole that wood - just the sort of thing I might have done... and then spent ages scratching my head to know what to do with it! Good luck today but I know it'll be fine. I just know it!

Susan ~ Killam Creative said...

Oh dear, the halo slipped. Really, though, it doesn't look too bad at all! I am most curious what you will do with the wood. :)

I hope the pokey things do the trick!

Cheers,
Susan #108

Lisa said...

Sometimes the halo slipping is a lot more fun than keeping it straight!!

gorgeous bloomer too! show us how you made it please:D and i'm looking forward to seeing what the bit of wood becomes too!

Hi Hels,

Oh I'd love to see your little gem in my postal box!! Yum. The idea of a giveaway on one Wednesday and then posting the winner the following week has given me an idea. May I copy you?

I had an acupuncture appointment yesterday. They always seem to help me. I hope it helps you just as much. I try to go every couple of weeks.

Take care of yourself.

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay

Queen Of Toys said...

Your flower is really beautiful and intrigued as to how you created it. You are so tallented and have a natural flair it seems. As for being tidy, don't stress it will get done one day, when the time is right, you can't rush these things. As for the bin, bin night is when mine gets done regardless. LOL

Eliza #103

Crafty Granny said...

RosC said...

Really like the Studio 490 piece, in particular the flower which reminds me of tiger lillies (colour wise that is). The desk looks great, much better organised than mine. I can feel some big changes coming on.
Happy days,
Ros. #124
