Yay!!! for another Wednesday, and a little blog-hop around to nosey on other people's work spaces.
For information and how to join in with "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" (WOYWW), just take a visit to Ms Julia at The Stamping Ground, and all will be revealed :)
This week, I shall be number.....31 - every time I write that sentence I think of "Stars In Their Eyes" lol
I usually photograph my desk in the early hours of Wednesday morning - those dead-of-the-night hours when I just can't sleep. Usually not a lot changes - but my trusty white lamp with the magnifier broke (not so trusty!) and I lent my large crafting mat to ..well, er... Matt, actually (my daughter's other-half) - so that's missing too.
I spent most of this week making a fireplace 'topper' for the 'Miss Havisham Room' in my dolls house. It's not good. In fact, it looks awful! I ripped out the ceiling paper too, and have decided to use some of my scrapbook papers - both for the ceiling and the walls (which is on my desk).
I am trying to complete the whole house on a minimum budget - making things where and when I can, with whatever I already have in the craft-room. Hence, the upturned glue bottles in a dolls house bath that needs mending (I trod on it, broke the taps, and swore rather loudly). I keep them upturned so I can eke out every last bit of the glue inside. I need to get my money's worth! On the right is my 'What I Am Using Now" box... just bits and pieces that get in the way as I'm crafting, but that I use often - they stay sort-of tidy in my box. One cold cup of tea and a few bits and pieces scattered over, and this is my desk :)
Did you notice my little pressie? The green sleigh was a gift from my dearest friend Ms Lizzie - isn't it the cutest?! She's also made me some miniature books for the 'Woman In Black Study' room - but forgot to pack them last time she paid a visit, so I'll show those when I get a chance to photograph them.
Apart from my desk, I have also commandeered the dining table...
I am just using a wood dye to stain lots of bits and pieces of wood I have lying around... from lollipop and cocktail sticks to a wooden fan - I thought I'd get them ready for a few projects I may work on for the dolls house. I shan't share right now - because if it turns out as bad as the fireplace topper, I certainly won't be showing any of it off!
Apologies for a long-winded post... but here's hoping your Wednesday ~ and the rest of the week too ~is a massively happy one!
