What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #336

What's happening at the kitchen table today? Quite a bit, as it happens.

























I've just finished kitting for a weekend workshop. A fairly new venture for me. I get quite a lot of enquiries from people who can't make it to my day time sessions, during the week, as they work full time. If they are willing to host, and have enough friends who are interested, then I take the class to them. It's a pretty good solution.

























The cards you've seen before, if you visited last week. Here's a closer look at the gift box. I did a tutorial for it earlier this year, if you fancy making some. Very simple and you can get two from a sheet of A4 card. Patterned paper works well, as long as it's a decent weight, and saves on stamping, but that's my favourite part.

Time for a coffee and a Danish, while I visit Julia and The Deskers.

That wreath stamp is so beautiful and isn't it interesting how different it looks in the green and taupe colours? Hope your weekend gig goes well, may it be the first of many :-). Love that gift box too, so simple yet pretty!

Lovely cards & bag. When I opened up your blog page this morning, it made me feel very festive (good thing)& just last night I sorted through the box of Christmas gift bags & paper. I have so many boring plain bags, so your example gives me some inspiration (good thing). Thanks.

You've got me feeling really Christmassy now! And the Playmobil has just been delivered! All I need now is a Danish :) I'd sign up for a class in a flash

Lovely cards on the desk there, Fiona, and what a great little bag! Have fun at the workshop teaching those.
Thanks for visiting - 300plus does seem a bit excessive, doesn't it, but over half have gone to our church charity, Parental Care Ministries.
Take care. God bless.

Hi Fiona, really do like those wreath cards. The weekend workshops sound like a great idea, hope they go well. Yes, I'm a sucker for Lavinia stamps, lol. At least now I can negotiate the stairs I can do some crafting instead of reading and surfing the net to pass the time. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #7 xxx

I love your little bag, it looks so good with that wreath stamp, and I really like the neutral colours with a splash of red. The cards are fantastic and I hope your workshops go well, it's a great idea. Hope you have a great week and thanks so much for your earlier visit,

Love your bag and the wreath stamp! I am busy making little gifts for my friends for Christmas, those little bags might be just the thing I need! Hope the workshop goes well.

Very pretty bags - I am sure they'll be much appreciated at the workshop. And the wreath cards are delicate but festive ... I am now beginning to feel VERY behind!

I've been more miss than hit with WOYWW lately, but so nice to get back to it - I still love your style. The bag and card are both so sweet. Just off to browse back and see a bit more about your little hexies now....looking for a solution to a pile of hubby's old shirts...could that be it?

:)

late ... again!

Beautiful bag, always love how neat your crafting desk looks, mine just looks like I've dumped a box of craft stuff on it!

Robyn Oliver said...

Hi Fiona, seems there are a few ladies giving classes - they would certainly keep your busy and organised. Love the card and bag Cheers RobynO#29

Love the little gift bag, I'm a big fan of all off the page projects and when they're useful too what's not to love.

Sandra said...

You always do it just right. Stunning
