Well, it may be another year but these Wednesday’s keep coming round faster than ever.
It doesn’t seem two minutes ago that I was telling you I had a clear desk ready to do my tax return, which incidentally is now done, and now I’m here again with a desk that’s looking a little more cluttered.
So what’s there to see this morning?
Well, there’s evidence that I’ve been busy in the last few days because there’s a box full of stamps and wet’n’dry foam that needs cleaning and putting away in their rightful places, there’s my spice rack full of gorgeous colorful flowers and there’s also my latest copy of Craft Stamper that postie brought on Monday.
I subscribe to this magazine each month in the hope that I will learn some new techniques and be more adventurous in my card making but sadly that hasn’t really happened yet and more than a year down the line I still always manage to stay inside my comfort zone.
Hopefully things will change…..one day!
The magazine is actually strategically placed on my desk, hiding the project that I’m working on.
It’s going to be a surprise gift for someone who often visits my blog so all I can tell you is that it’s a 12 x 12 layout (not something I make often) that is destined to end up in a frame and the inspiration for it came when I was blog hopping for last weeks WOYWDW and visited Lisa’s blog, Lisa’s Craft Garden
Whenever I visit a blog for the first time I like to spend a while looking back at the all the projects they’ve made. Lisa’s work is simply beautiful, especially her gorgeous boxes and the sugar craft work she does but what really caught me eye while I was snooping was this layout that she had made over a year ago.
It’s a stunning piece of work and seeing it gave me the idea for my project, so I scrap lifted it…I hope you don’t mind Lisa.
That’s all I can say for now without giving away what I’m up to but when it’s finished and the person has received it I’ll show you the finished article I promise.
Thanks for stopping by this week………and all the other weeks, your comments are always welcome and most appreciated.
I’m off to Julie’s Stamping Ground now, where our great leader Julia presides over the biggest weekly blog hop ever.
Why not come and join in!
See you all soon
