Hi world,
Wednesday again so soon, where does the time go?
 Opps Julia says keep it brief!! want to sneek a peek at other people's workdesks?
So here's my desk

 I have just finished some work on my AB from Elizabeth's   Altered book lover lesson 5   free on line Class so there is lots of mess.
In the middle is one of my Octopode  stamps, I love them !! Not sure how it fits in with my travel theme.

The observant members out there may notice the big box of Bendicks Bittermints on the left... they were a Mothers Day present from DD1.
 But as it was also lent I couldn't eat them, but now . . . . .

Yep! all gone.
Here is my AB desk with the page I been adding to.
 It is supposed to be about balance, Mmm not sure about that. 

I will post more about it later, when I have finished the other elements, one of which is harmony.

This is the small piece of harmony that allowed me to do some crafting today.

GD Erin . . . . .  Asleep
Julia posted last week she was taking a break from midnight posting so I'm off to bed soon,
thanks Julia.
Why not pop over to see all the other desks, they are always amazing :D
There that was brief wasn't it?
I will be seeing you later, I would love you to leave a comment but in the spirit of WOYWW please leave a Mr Linky no so I can find you right back

  6. Love the altered book. Super creative workspace. I adore Bendicks bittermints - yummy - Hazel, WOYWW #85 x

  7. Now, you see, I could quite happily pass by on those choccy mints - not my thing at all. But give me Thorntons Treacle toffee and I can't rest til the whole bag's gone :)
    Looks like you're having fun with your book! Good ole Erin for freeing up your crafting time :)
    Hugs, LLJ #7 xx

  8. cute as a button that granddaughter of yours, great working space thank you for letting us take a peek, happy crafting jill #62

  9. Great looking desk. I love chocolate mints and it would have been hard for me to abstain from eating them! Great work! Vickie #32

  10. Feel free with the bin design! It has a circle of the inner fabric at the bottom and an elasticated gathering of the outer green material underneath. I didn't have to undo a single mistake - I'm very proud of that!! If you need other pics of the details, give us a shout but I'm sure you know what to do!!
    Hugs, LLJ xx

  12. Love your desk, your AB is looking fantastic,and a Gorgeous sleeping baby!!! Hugs May x x x No2

  13. Erin is beautiful.
    Your desk is too - so full of things, so creative.
    Thanks for visiting me and for showing us your creative space - Hugs, Neet xx #1 (and for putting your number)

  14. Lovely creative space and I am sure you could find a use for te choc box, and it would smell lovely too. Gorgeous gd too. Hugs, Amanda x #146

  15. Your AB is coming along a treat and to my untutored eye it looks perfectly balanced and the postage cancellation stamps create movement around the page - so two birds with one stone.
    Erin is such a cutie - they all look like angels when they are asleep.

  16. Oh my gosh! I love the stamp of the little guys in their beanies. So cute! Lots of, lots of, LOTS of stuff on your desk this week. Isn't it funny how one project can require dragging out so much?! Most of the mess on my desk is for a paper bag book that I just CANNOT get done.

  17. Loving your desk and great pics plus GD is gorgeous too

    thanks for sharing

    Happy WOYWW and thanks for the visit.
    hugs Lisax #69

  19. Oh my, how Erin grows, bless her! You're doing well with the AB, I'm sorta surprised to find myself enjoying it, although my progress is ridiculously slow! Hey well done onthemend chocolate and lent deprivation, bet those mints tasted so much the better for it!
