What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #301

Back to reality here, after a lovely weekend away in Herefordshire. I spent most of my time yesterday feeding the washing machine so no time for crafting. Instead my daughter was busy at the kitchen table, adding to her Art coursework.

She has a whole bunch of characters, but this one is herself.

I do have one thing of my own to share with you. This is the other card that I had kits for, on my “desk” last week. I just used one colour of inkpad and was really pleased with the ombre effect, as the colour faded with repeated stamping.

That’s me. I’ll be round to see what’s on your desk once I’ve hung the next load of washing out! Check them all out at Julia’s place.

I hate dooing laundry. In the winter there is twice as much. It really eats into creative time.
A family that creates together how fab.

I have been neglecting all my blog buddies recently so I am making a big effort to visit a few more this week. Your daughter has lots of talent there! I found my daughters GCSE folder in a cupboard here as I cleared out for our move - she is 34 now so why have I still got it!!! x Jo

I really dislike card making - no, really, but you keep on showing me stuff I simply have to try. I think I will have to save up all my efforts and then sell them at the Christmas fair for my granddaughters school. I still dislike making cards though

Julia Dunnit said...

Hanging washing out - crikey, we're nearly at that time where you can hang and forget! Hurrah!!
Glad you had a lovely weekend, possibly even a little jealous! I love your daughters artwork..and how come she's got such gorgeous curly hair?!

Beverly said...

She is very talented! Today I am catching up on blogs, trying the needle fix you suggested on the sewing matching and going to the pool.
