What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #116

It’s the fifth week of the summer holidays and still not much crafting happening around here. I did find time yesterday to cut some shapes for a decorated chipboard swap I’m taking part in.

I did the actual embossing on a glass mat in the kitchen. I’ve had too many other mishaps in the past, when using the heat gun at my desk, warped cutting mats being the main casualties! I thought I had been so careful with the powder, but when I turned the hob light on, to cook the dinner, it revealed a very glittery worktop. Oops!

I’m off to Julia’s place to see what everyone else has been up to this week.

Your desk looks busy. I don't think many of us with little ones are getting much done over the holidays x x

When I worked in school, I always used to have glitter everywhere - in underwear for example. The blooming stuff got in every nook and cranny...itchy :D xx

LOL! The first time that I embossed at home, I thought that I was being so clever putting cardboard on the floor and embossing...so that I could just vacuume up the extra bits...when I was done, I had melted carpet underneath! Thanks for sharing your WOYWW! Good luck with the swap! -Amanda

The sign of a true crafter - an embossed cooker :-) Hope it came off ok.

Been there, done that with the craft mats and the glass mat sounds just the solution.

May be you should go into kitchen design and stark a new crazy for blingy worktops.
Loving all the cats!

Happy Crafting!
