I normally take my desk photo at the close of 'play' on Tuesday (my day off) just before my handyman gets home from work. I only craft in the afternoon.
This week I was a bit crafted out so I did the ironing instead, yes that's right . . the ironing !!!!!
Normally I am a believer in smooth and fold. My mum thinks I am terrible for not ironing my handymans socks and pants etc ! . . . who does that?
Anyway, I have run out of shirts for work and as they pay me I thought I really should make the effort, so I ironed 10 shirts and a hankie.
I remember it wasn't so long ago that I used to have at least 20 shirts a week to do so maybe it's not so bad for two weeks
Here is my desk just before. I'm not sure what Julia will think of my defection to housework, dont think she will approve, Why am I talking about my desk find out here stamping-ground.WOYWW
Anyway it wasn't all work, work, work today, here is some other stuff I made this afternoon
A birthday card (I didn't do the cross stitch today that has taken a few weeks).
A grungepaper case for a make up mirror (Christmas pressie) the stamping doesn't really show up, it's the Eiffel Tower and a post mark.
8 Christmas cards similar to this one.
The snowflake is embossed on wood and the label is inkjed with DI and sprayed with water and cosmic shimmer and then stamped with Stazon............
So it wasn't a completely wasted afternoon.
I went back to my desk after dinner (yes, I did the washing up etc first)
I did some some inking on tags for some more cards.
Now i have really inky fingers for work tomorrow but at least I have a lovely ironed blouse !
Later this evening (after work)I am going to start with desk no 1 and see how far I get, sorry if I dont make the whole list. Happy WOYWW
