Good morning, Julia, and all you busy WOYWWers this week. For those who are new to crafting, just slip over to Julia's Stamping Ground Blog and all will be explained far better than I could.
It has been a long time since I saw this much of my desk. I had actually cleared the whole thing this afternoon, but I thought it might look too shocking and boring if I did not put one of two oddments on it somewhere.
There are a couple of newish Clarity stamps, still in their packets until I have catalogued them properly. There is also a Clarity envelope to the left, all ready for a special project (If you are reading this, Sam, I have ideas just ready to put into place).
My large baby powder is there ready for a multitude of uses, from covering up badly placed glue to preventing static while heat embossing. Next to is my newest Speedball brayer. The older one has been relegated to applying acrylic ink to the Gelli Plate. I will leave it to you to see what else is still there, including my WOYWW badge.
I have even managed to test out my new printer - I only had it three months ago, when the other one had a total mental breakdown and refused to print anything sensibly or legibly. The new one (Epson) prints almost as well as my wonderful Epson Photo. I still need to see if it will print the same thickness of card as the Photo, but the quality so far is good.
I also spent quite a lot of time trying to find out why I could not get any volume to listen to my music. It was only after a couple of updates and a lot of messing around that I realised what the problem was. Can you guess? I am sure you can!
It was an afternoon of finding lots of goodies, and then losing things that were in my hands two minutes before, including a whole pack of Christmas toppers, ready to start for this year. They did turn up just as I came downstairs to have my home made mushroom soup for tea (Yum and just enough for tea tomorrow, and no cream or other bad calories in it either).
If the police helicopter sits on top of my roof again tonight, I shall get up a and make a couple of quick cards. More productive than lying there trying to stop the dogs going berserk at the dreadful row. I think they were all round the town last night, as everyone at the gym was chuntering about it. There is one good thing - when they are there, you have no chance of being burgled.
If you have got to this point in my post, it is probably time for you to visit some of the other people showing their desks this week at Stamping Ground, courtesy of Lady Julia Dunnit. I hope you will find a moment to leave me a comment, and I will visit you in return.
