Just a big mess this week I’m afraid!
You can see the aftermath of a card making session last night but as usual I can’t show the cards yet.
No wonderful stamping techniques on them though, I was just literally playing with paper, but not just any old paper. They were the MME Wild Asparagus papers that Lythan brought me as a little get well gift when I had my eye op and they are one of my favorites at the moment. She also brought me these gorgeous ‘Say it in Studs’ Prima embellishments
and as you can see I’m finding it had to bring myself to use them.
I’d much rather sit and stroke and admire them because they are soooo lush!
You’ll notice that I have acquired another of the spice racks. I was lucky to get it as it goes because when I went back they only had two left.
Originally I was going to put my beads in this one but us I’ve already brought special storage boxes for the beads I decided to use this one for all my brads, eyelets and card candy and leave the beads where they were.
There’s not much else of interest on my desk other than the new Xcut border punch that I brought on Friday and the cd case that I store my Nestabilities in………that might just be sitting there awaiting so new arrivals, who knows!
Right in the centre of the table is a bundle of DMC embroidery threads that I’ve just sold on eBay and am about to post. It’s one of the 200 or so that were donated to the Kids Company stitching project that working on and I’m selling them to raise money to help with our postage costs to and from Switzerland and to buy the cushion fillers that we need……..we’ve used more than 300 so far!
If any of you lovely ladies are in need of any threads and would like to help support us I’d be grateful of your help.
There’s over 52 meters of thread in 29 colours (varying amounts of each colour) in each bundle and I’m selling them for 99p + p&p (payment will be via PayPal.)
I have several listed on eBay but if you are interested Email me and there’ll be no eBay charges and I can keep the p&p to a minimum.
Right that’s my cheeky sales pitch over and it’s on with the day.
I have about half a dozen extra wedding invitations to make that are being collected this evening and I was hoping to get out in the garden and do a bit while the sun is still shining, so wish me luck.
Don’t forget you can join in the nonsense that is What’s on you Work Desk Wednesday by visiting Julia’s Blog. See you there hopefully!
