I wasn't going to participate on "What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday" this week... but half an hour ago, Baby decided to wake me up with a wet nose to my chin, and a swipe of a soft paw to the cheek :) Bless.
So, seeing as the little kitty won't let me get back to sleep (swishing of big fluffy tail in face, purring in ear, etc) I decided to come into the craft room, empty my bag from Pickwell Craft Club last night and have a bit of fun and join in with hundreds (well... 175 last week!) of other crafters and nosey people who weekly pop over to Ms Julia's "Stamping Ground" blog and add their name to Mr Linky :)
I've finished the "Family Recipe" album - apart from what I'm going to decorate the cover with - and I'm actually putting photographs in it too! The piccies are all chosen, and just need to be cut down to size and placed into the album. I haven't started the journaling yet... that part will takes AGES! The photographs left at the side of the album are ones that will go into the album, but slid into a couple of 1/4" thick pocket-type-sort-of-pages I constructed, along with copies of certificates and memorabilia.
Of course, being at Pickwells last night AND having birthday money burning a hole in my pocket, I just had to buy the Tim Holtz Alterations "Elegant Flourishes" Bigz die (Sizzix, 656639). Expect to see this a LOT in future projects :) This die was the main reason I always wished for a Big Shot :)
I'm running out of pads for my smudgy-inky thingies, so bought those too - and a few little sale items just fell into my basket as I walked past them. Honest! :)
The mirror, as you can see, is still sat at the back of my desk, untouched and dusty just waiting for me to get round to doing something wonderful (!) with it. I will get there. Eventually. It just doesn't help when adorable little furry animals wake me up at some unGodly hour of the morning wanting attention! I'm slipping back to bed for a couple of hours - hopefully with no interruptions... but (as Arnie said) "I'll be back!" to have a snoop at your desks later :)
Have a wonderful WOYWW everyone!
