What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday #144

I came home on Sunday to a lounge still draped in sheets and a phenomenal amount of dust everywhere. I’ve spent the last two days clearing it up and attempting to restore order. It’s probably the cleanest this room has ever been. I unloaded the car last night and all my supplies are waiting to be put away.

As you can see I travelled fairly light. One RUB full of clear stamps, wet wipes and a stamp scrubby thing. The one underneath has Hero Arts alphabets, a couple of big background stamps, TH rosette die and kraft cardstock. A huge pack of paper from Costco. Did you get one of those? My tool tote, Bigshot and a tub of inks.

Some albums that I listened to on the journey, including Cowboy Junkies, The Cure, Sterophonics and Neil Young. A disc waiting to be returned to Lovefilm, instructions on how to top up my daughter’s Squid card and my not so trusty sat nav. I was ready to throw it out of the window when I saw the sign saying Welcome to Wales.

I had a fabulous time in Herefordshire with great company and some delicious food. I didn’t get any scrapbook pages done, but I made a lot of these rosettes. Very easy to do while chatting, as not much concentration is needed. The papers are from that Costco pack. I think it’s going to last forever!

I also made various other embellishments to go on cards at a later date. I need a lot this month, so it’ll be great to have a stockpile ready to stick and go. The large flowers are made from scalloped circles and are still missing their middles. The rolled roses, bunting and flourishes are made using MFT dies. Love these.

If you feel like giving us a peek into your crafty corner of the world, or just having a nose around everyone else’s, then head on over to Julia’s place. We’ll all be happy to see you. I’m off to link up and grab a coffee so I can go visiting.

PS To all you Meadow Barners waiting for the soup recipe, I promise to post it tomorrow xx

Love your banners. Didn't know we had Costco here, for a minute there I thought you'd been to America!

No staring at the see today, it's pouring here in Worthing.

Enjoy your day

I was wondering if you were a cure fan when I saw the title of your blog! I love them too! Happy Woyww! Love the goodies on your desk!

scrappymo! said...

The banner is lovely! I don't know what MFS is, but I assume some kind of die for cutting it out.
The resettes are fab. you will have lots of fun using those up!

Morti said...

Aww, love your desk this week, all very neatly arrayed and just poised on the cusp of action, even if it is only putting-away-action!

Glad you had a good time...

Sorry its taken me so long to get around this week - the commission is taking every spare minute. I was making rosettes during Slimming World last night as I don't have a die! I love the other shapes you have there, who are MFT?
