Hi everyone *big wave* not joined in for a while and I really have missed you all and having a good nosey around. My desk/dining room table is a real mix of clutter at the moment:
where to start? bottom to top I guess - there are a few of my new dylusions sprays that I got on Sunday - thought I would find out what the fuss was all about and I have only tried two (the two at the top of the table) and they are lush and the colours are so vibrant so well worth it! That blue thing to the right is a spade handle which I was trying to paint grey to go with my tombstone (on the left) but it didn't go to plan so I haven't used it. Then to the left is my tombstone which I managed to finish and blog about on Monday but haven't moved to the lounge yet (it's for October) after that is my WOYWW badge to wear at the NEC in November - whoo hoo.
That large sizzix die is under a pile of new stamps that I got with my winnings from T!ms august tag challenge (little toot toot for myself there!). The washing up bowl is my new "Spray Station" I bought it as I taught a class of tags on Sunday but I ended up just walking around the room all day with all my bits and bobs in it and everyone thought it was a sick bucket instead! That gun is so not mine! never sure where these extra things come from (the pencils arent mine either!). The stamps at the top right are my new T!m halloween ones that I got on Monday (they are part of the winning shop too) which enabled me to finish my tombstone - the pile of magazines next to the pc are the last three issues of Scrap 365 that I still haven't read and some books on how to drawn Disney/Beano characters (planning to go into school and teach some children how to draw! gulp - wish me luck!).
I have angled my photo this way so that you can see another new lovely purchase - my birdcage! isn't it fab it was only £15 from the Range and is going to slowly house all my latest tags - three of them on there have been done in the past two weeks so I have been busy getting very creative here - it's lovely when your mojo is back isnt it!
If you want to know why I am baring my workspace to the world then pop over to Julia's for all the details and you can even join in the fun too! be warned though it's very addictive......
I would also like to say a big hello to my new followers: Kathy H, Judith, Evelyn, TheMugglePuggle, Farm Quilting, Quilt n Queen, Susie Q, Legato, Kathy, LeliaEvelyn, Susan, Linda, My Crafty Shed and CeLynn - I think most of you have joined me from the quilting blog hop (hasn't that been such fun!) and also a big thank you to all for following me.
That's it from me - thanks for looking - off to catch up with desks around the world from Solihull
edited to add: It must be summer as I have hung some washing on line!
