Hi Wednesday world

This is my desk as I left it last night, just before I watched the new sitcom on BBC3 'white van man'. (quite good, but a bit fast and furious and manic).
anyway i have been trying to make flower brooches for my table top sale  next month. i thought i would get a head start now that i have finished the wedding invites. sorry i can't show them before Emma has seen them can I.
the brooches are mostly made from grunge paper and painted with Tim Holtz dabbers.
they are cut out using the big shot and Marianne's creatable dies. i have also used patterned card and brads for the middle. none of the brooches are actually finished except for the red one in the middle which was made for me by Vicky from work. it is my inspiration for the others. hopefully i will get them finished in the next few days.
here's looking at your desks now. WOYWW94


  1. Lovely desk! Looks like you have a big project ahead. Thanks for stopping by my desk. Happy WOYWW. :-)

  2. Look forward to seeing a finished brooch.
    Love all your storage drawers.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. It looks like you have some fun stuff going on!

  4. Ooooooo i so love all your flowers your working on, ive been wanting to have a go making different flowers for my cards, and you certainly have given me inspiration. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog, the stamps from stamin up come unmounted and they give you the wooden blocks to put them on, but i cant decide if to put them on the wood or not, as im used to unnmounted. But i keep looking at the blocks and thinking it would be a waste if i didnt put them on. Oh decisions lol.

  5. Very creative and so interesting looking. I'm lovin the flowers especially! TFS

  6. Your brooches are sounding wonderful, I hope you show us the finished creations. It's amazing what you can do with paper crafting stuff isn't it?
    Thanks for visiting me.

  7. Nice workspace. Sorry I am so late making it around but last week was very busy. Thanks for sharing. Vickie #162

  8. Love your desk and your broochs seem to be coming together nicely

  9. Your flowers look fabulous to me lots of 'green' I need a new cutting board, but I'm thinking blue or pink or maybe even purple next time,Thanks for the snoop!!
    (((Happy Very Late WOYWW Lyn)))

  10. Those brooches are great - what are you going to use to protect them from general wear-and-tear damage?


I'd love to know you have popped by so please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
