WOYWW164 the big reveal

Time once again to meander amongst the worlds workdesks and have a peep at lots of crafty-ness or do I mean crafty-mess, probably!!!
See what it is all about and join in with Julia at stamping-ground

Here is my desk this week...... the big Tiara reveal, well it's not that big LOL

On my desk is my stash book which I am adding my latest purchases too.... some stamps I brought today in Hobbycraft for £1 each, the bee is a replacement for the one I lost (probably threw away) a while ago.
Underneath the stash book is a scrapping project I am working on, top secret!
At the back in the tiara..... almost finished, it just needs 'tidying up' and finishing off.
Next to the tiara is the wedding menu, you may remember the easels from last week which I cut out and am using to stand the menus up.

Close up of the tiara, I still have to add the pearls and crystals on the front to hide all the wire. The design is based on the Russian tiara I saw at the Diamond Jubilee Exhibition at 'Buck House'.

I had a bit of help in my craft room today, Erin (GD) is helping sort through some boxes, I think she is just nosey, oh and yes she is sitting in the dog bed . . . . as you do. . .  he he.

If you  are kind enough to comment please leave your Mr Linky no. if you have one so I can visit you back.
 I will try to get to as many desks as possible, you never know .... it could be you!

  1. The tiara is coming along nicely, I can't wait to see the finished version, it will be stunning! Erin looks so darn cute sitting there in the doggy bed, you need to get her one of her own, with her name on the front of it! She just thinks it's kid size furniture!! perfect size for her cute little tush!! waving hi, waiting for Julia to post, from the hills of North Carolina :)

  16. How funny... my first WOYWW, and since I'm in at 128 I thought I'd visit all the 8s first and then see how much further I get - and here are you at 18, preparing for a wedding, same as me! ... though my preparations are for my brother's wedding not mine! Tiara is looking magnificent. I'm sending this link to my sister-in-law-to-be who is also making her own headpiece!

  17. What a lot of work has gone in to the tiara - your daughter will be delighted with it. Erin looks very cute, 'snug and cosy' in the dog basket!!

  18. Love that GD is sitting in the dog bed. Snug and cozy indeed, it looks like it was made for her. The tiara is looking good! I like all the pearls and beads, very cool. I'm still impressed you record all your purchases in your stash book. I wouldn't have the patience to do that-I'd forget. And I understand what you mean about how you may have thrown that one stamp out. That's the downside to those cling and acrylic stamps-can be easily lost or tossed. I found one clinging to a piece of cardstock in my stash once. Who knows how long it had been there.

  19. Yay! The tiara turned out so beautiful!! And what a little cutie that Erin is!

  27. The tiara is stunning and what could be better for any bride than having it modelled on one the Queen might have worn!

    And where else would a little girl sit than in the dogs bed ... it's soft and cosy, perfect.

    Belated happy WOYWW, Elizabeth x #24

  28. The tiara is gorgeous, Janet. I know that Russian one which is beautiful, and a great choice for inspiration! Love the little girl in the dog bed too - that's such a sweet photo! Hope the dog's nose wasn't put out of joint.

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog - well done making it to the end of the mega-long post lol! I gave the card to the lady today and she loved it - as did everyone else who saw it. Makes all the work worth while, doesn't it!
