What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #288

Last Wednesday was one of those days that you just want to forget and I didn’t make it to the desk hopping fun. I managed to squeeze in a little bit of crafting yesterday and here’s the kitchen table just as the light was going.

I’m making little boxes. When you lift the lid, the cut out shape reveals the four tea lights nestling inside. This version is going to be blue and white with snowflakes.

This is the one we made in class. You can see the star shaped peep hole, which is underneath the lid, in the first shot. There was a card to match, but I’ve already given it away and forgot to take a photo.

Finally a mini cracker treat box. Perfectly sized for a lip balm (or sweets/chocolate) and made using the ever useful Envelope Punch Board. Three more projects to come up with for next week’s class and then I’m done for the year. Just like that.

I said it yesterday, but I’ll say it again: Apologies to anyone having difficulty getting past Word Verification. I seem to be unable to turn it off. I have tried and tried. I don’t think it’s just me. It has reared its ugly head on several blogs that I visit regularly. Come on Blogger, give us a break!

I hate the WV too - but if you're signed into your google account you can ignore it.... may help some people. Love the little boxes and your cracker - very clever!! Helen 8

Google seem to have imposed the W. As another way to force people into having an account..it's a bit of a disgraceful move if you ask me. I love the idea of the peep hole inside the box, and your desk as always, is very calming to me. You never seem to have rubbish and tried and discarded supplies.....am I whining?!!!

I'm supervising the munchkins playing happily with their Lego so grabbing a few minutes to do a dash round some of my favourite blogs.
What fab makes. You're so clever.
Hugs,

Love those boxes and stars, such fun and a great idea! Bet they were fun to make :-)
I can't get rid of the WV either, but when it's numerals, I don't mind so much....
Hugs, LLJ 21 xx

Beautiful boxes - very elegant looking! I'm not very good at measuring stuff and make them line up correctly. And I always get glue everywhere! Yours are very clean and precise! Happy WOYWW! zsuzsa @ InkyDinkyDoodle #40

Love the boxes Fiona, great gift idea too. Di's fix in my comments works for getting rid of the WV, as does Helens of ignoring it.I went with Di's version, as I think seeing WV can put people off- at least we are getting the word out there though.Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx
