Welcome to my blog

I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and please leave me a comment. I always enjoy reading them, and will try to visit you in return.

You are welcome to copy any of my designs, as long as you do not take credit for them yourself. I am very happy for you to sell them. If I have used anyone else's design, I always try to give credit where it is due. If I have missed anything, please let me know and I will put things right.

This is intended to be mainly about my crafting stories, as a personal record of what I do. However, I interpret crafting quite widely, not just paper crafting but other things too. I have a butterfly mind and like to change from one thing to another depending on what I feel like on a given day - knitting, crochet, cross-stitch, cards, baking and several others.

My desk this week is alternating between things I am doing, but cannot show, and all the things I bought at the NEC.   Why am I showing you these?  Well, it is all in the title of this post.  It is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, when we all join with the lovely Julia to show what we are doing.

Rather late as the show was the beginning of the month, but this is what I gathered from the NEC.   I suspect no-one will be very surprised to see that  pretty well all my goodies came from the Clarity stand.  There are a couple of other things but I cannot show them now as they are for presents.  I also stocked up on base cards which were good value.

They are all out on my table ready to find their permanent homes.

They are all sitting on my newest acquisition, the Best Ever Craft Mat from Ken Oliver.  I love it as things do not slide  on it and it stays put on the table.

I love this little set of stamps, perfect for simple clean type cards.

My collection of these chalk paints is growing and I shall soon need another storage box for them. 

 The re-inkers were on special offer with a free stencil as well, so it would have been rude to miss out, now wouldn't it?

My choice of stencil was down to the fact that my star stencil had been so badly chewed by a thieving little dog.  Surprisingly, I have just got that one out from under the heavy weights on top and it is back to being usable

This was what it looked like a few weeks ago, and now it is flat and ready for use.  So while I can see it still in one piece, I will leave you in Julia's capable hands and go and get inky with it right now.  Have a good week, everyone.
