Before I show you my desk this week, I want to thank all those who visited me to ask about my bee plague and, more importantly, how Flash is (Flash being the older of our two mad working cocker spaniels). He is a week into his painkillers, and all of a sudden, he is bouncing around as normal. He has lost his fear of going upstairs or up steps, and his tail is wagging madly again.
Now, onto the main purpose of this post, - the state of my desk, for the weekly meeting of the WOYWWers, hosted by the lovely Julia.. You missed the five minutes when it was tidy on Monday morning. I am now back to my normal state of doing five or more things at one time.
You can see some of my meagre stash of Promarkers, in use colouring in some Clarity stamps, and some other images printed off last summer. My big problem with these is that I really need a lot more of the fine nibs to do the more delicate work and I am having to swap them from one pen to another, trying to remember to remove the ink from one before I start using the second colour. Red in the middle of pale yellow is not a good look!
I was colouring a card when I realised I did not have an Anniversary stamp to finish it off. So I printed one off in the right colour, but I did not want a straight cut piece of card to stick on. Out came the Cuttlebug and my one and only set of Nestabilities. Step by step instructions were needed to work out how to cut and then to emboss the Happy Anniversary print out. I cringe every time I put anything through for fear that I might break an expensive plate. I did get it done safely, and I will show you the result once the card has been delivered.
I have also been busy printing the DVD's I have just copied - the Barbara Gray shows from this week. The printer threw a wobbly in the middle and had to be told very firmly that the tray WAS in the right place and I did want it to print. At the same time, the computer threw a different wobbly, insisting the I had to sign in to XMarks, not letting me do anything else. A bit of internet research solved that one.
Then the Silhouette decided it needed an update. It is all go round here.
I hope you all had a good week, and I apologise for how long it took me to get round all those who visited me, and to all those I did not get to - I hope to visit you this week. Have a good week and a very happy Easter.
