hi world
120 already omg.
Julia is up to her usual tricks this week, if a bit organised... for her. See her blog HERE  and have a peek at some very interesting work spaces. Also check out her funny post on vinegar bottles).  spray bottles.  I tried to get one but Sainsbury's didn't have any!
Here is my desk, another busy desk with lots going on on it. hooray!
On the left are two cuffs I have made for daughters 1 and 2 who have their birthday on Friday.
I think is safe to show them...... they don't read my blog, too busy on facebook (yuk)!
But just incase, look away now girls.
I first saw these on  the little shabby shed (as featured in Craft Stamper this month)

On the right is some red fabric, a bag of black buttons and a yoyo maker, more about that next week!
At the back you can just see my first Christmas card,
 yes I know I said I wasn't going to start yet, but I saw this on Joanne Wardle's blog and had to have a go. made by joanne.blogspot.
 I knew I would find a use for the horrible green holographic card one day lol.

The yellow box in the middle contained little wooden flowers, but the box is too good to throw away and just the right size for my new inchie bird stamps. I painted it with acylic paint.
 Then I made a card with the inchies instead (I will get back to it).
 I was pleased with the card, I used a mask for the background with a post it note in the middle as well. I used wild honey and mustard seed D.I. The birds are stamped with stazon, from a set by Inkadinkadoo

Well I think thats more than enough from me, I'm off to see the world (desks that is )!


  1. You have been busy. Think the inchies work particularly well on that background.

  2. I like the cuffs very much, I'm sure your girls will love them - the lizard one is my favourite! Simple but effective Christmas card too :) xx

  3. Busy desk!! love the birds cards!!

  4. Hi there Janet - well love the card and started cards for Christmas ages ago - cant believe some dont start till November - me not generally organised but like to be for that! the second on is really lovely!(and had a chuckle at the vinegar post Julia is funny) happy WOYWW Shaz in Oz.x

  5. Love the birds card, great colours. The Spray Bottlesw link is broken, but if you are trying to buy them, Superdrug has some in their travel section, or this place online,Sensory Perfection. They sell stuff for making cosmetics, perfumes etc. I bought loads of Mica colours from them for making my own sprays & Perfect pearls type stuff, and they also have spray bottles, I bought from there too.

  6. Now you did good with the tree... that, really looks very nice I think!
    I had never seen the cuffs before... very intresting!!

  7. Also made my first Christmas cards this week, but could not bring myself to do the green and red thing yet.
    Love the tree and the inchie card.
    Happy very belated WOYWW
