What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday ~ 176

I didn’t work at my own desk today. This was what my kitchen table looked like this morning, before I packed everything into the car.

I went to the local Arts Centre and taught my first ever paper craft class. We made two different card designs and two gift boxes, in different colours, to match them.

My sweet girl made this cute Good Luck card for me, before she went off to school…

…and my lovely friend brought this delicious cake along for us to share.

I got to bring the leftover portion home. All in all a very good day.

To see what everyone else has been up to head over to Julia’s place.

As it is the fourth week of the semester my work desk is a jumble of lesson-sheets from all four of those weeks, plus stuff from private classes and more of the same from last year. The cherry on the cake is a few oily salad tubs, as you picture it say "oh, how nasty." (in a posh, nasal, 1950s voice)(:
