Why am I showing you a load of blue labels? Well, it is quite simple, really. It is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday (or it will be when you get to see this post), the day when a large part of the world of crafting gets together to show what we have been doing during the week and what is left on our desks. Why don't you all come along and join in? Just nip over to Julia's Stamping Ground to find out how to join the gang.
The labels are ready to chop up to put onto my Distress Ink Pads before they find their new home with all my other ink pads, right in front of me. This is all part of my clearing out and sorting and tidying up in my craft room. My desk is worse than last week because I am in the middle of moving things, as well as having some more painting done in the house that was missed last year.
I think that big pink thing will be going. I have only just got it, but, at the moment, I am not getting on with it at all. I prefer the smaller glue runners, which fit comfortably in my hand.
The shelves above the printers is almost sorted now. All my Clarity stamps are sorted into these numbered brown boxes, with their contents listed in a big folder and cross referenced onto a computer database so that I can find any stamp within 30 seconds.
This last shelf holds the final Clarity boxes with all the letters, numbers and shapes, and my precious Watchbirds, and another box with my stencil brushes in.
Someone asked me last week if glues really had a sell by date. The answer is yes, they do. I had several tubes of Pinflair Glue Gel, which I would normally have used easily last year, but, as many of you will know, last year was a bad year and I did very little crafting. As a result, these glues were not used, and when I went to use some this week (a brand new unopened tube), it was solid as a rock and totally unusable. When I looked at the tube, it did say that it would last twelve months in a unopened tube, so after two years, it is not surprising that it was deaded, totally. It was an ex-tube of glue.
Sorry, Julia, I have done my usual trick of rambling on, so I will just finish now and wish you all a very good Workdesk Wednesday.
