WOYWW 119

Yes Sirreeee, 'tis Wednesday again, and I'm going so slow that I'm surprised I'm not going backwards! I've managed to pick up a stinking cold from somewhere, and I can't blame Hubby this time because he's on holiday - I am missing him so much! Ah... could be all the stress from missing darling Hubby that's made this cold bug so awful... Poor bloke - in another country and I can still blame him for something *lol*
Right... onto the awe and wonders of the workspace... Okay, not much awe and wonder in my case, more of a "Wonder what the heck she's doing that for??" *lol*
I've decided to carry on experimenting with this little Toiletpaper Roll Mini... and it's quite a challenge for me to have such a tiny page to work on - but it is fun just to have a muck around and not think too much about what I'm doing. However... that Christmas Cottage Mini Album is building nicely - in my head! The ideas are forming - though the one I had about using raffia to make the roof look like it's thatched is definitely a no-no - too much hassle! Back to my workspace... Tim Holtz inks are out - though I'm only using the Walnut Stain and the Victorian Velvet for this project. I really have to remember to get some more blending foam - all the bits I have are almost worn away.
Top centre is part of my charms stash - just the silver ones that are metal and tiny. Those little plastic storage boxes are so useful - though this one is a bit difficult to open, and I'm always at risk of spraying charms all over the room when I open it :)
My ever-faithful sidekick with a few dies hasn't actually been used yet - though I think I may be using the "Tab" dies in a little while...
So, apart from my Purple Cows trimmer, that's about all on my desk today... and although I do love my Purple Cow, I am hankering after a Fiskars - apparently thay're much more accurate.

Have a wonderfully busy, creative, happy, and super-duper "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday?" everyone... and do pop over to Julia at the Stamping Ground and join in too if you haven't yet :) Let's all admit it... we all love WOYWW because crafters are just nosey-parkers at heart *lol*

We have the same paper trimmer! I don't see that often, so I noticed! LOL! Looks like you have some fun stuff ready to go!

I laughed so much when I read of your attempts to open the charms box without the contents leaping out everywhere - that happens to me all the time!! I'm so cack-handed, it's not true :D xx

Claire said...

It is the first time I have seen that trimmer !! and the opening of the charm tidy...I do it all the time with my brad tidy... I really must buy a different tidy for mine..am sure I loose more than I actually use

Sandra said...

Thanks for popping over to my workdesk today. I must say yours looks lovely and tidy, I do love to start off organised but it only lasts five minutes and often I just create in the existing mess! I keep planning to make a toilet roll mini album. They sound fun, and I like the challenge of having to work small sometimes. Hope you recover from your cold very soon.

Hope the cold improves.

Ooo, you are getting on with your loo-rolls...can't wait to see it when finished.

happy to meet you! All the best from Rhineland, Valerie

Have you got a scallop edge punch? Overlapped, lots of those could look like shingles for the roof? Love your tenacity with the loo roll...it would be in my 'to finish pile' by now, a bit fiddly and I'm a gonner!

sutty said...

such a tidy desk...something I aspire too :) Hope you get better soon, and look forward to seeing your mini.
