What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #352 ~ Snap!

Two for the price of one, as it's probably the only chance I'll get to blog this week.

First up, the state of the kitchen table, for the perusal of Julia and the Deskers.

























The few remaining bits to be put away after class this morning, along with my diary, lip balm, recipe book (Mushroom Stroganoff tonight) and wallet. Also a page from the Blackmore Vale Magazine, handed to me by a friend this morning, detailing an exhibition he thought I might be interested in.

And here's what we made. Three Spring themed cards so that I can at least pretend it's on its way, despite battling through high winds and hail this morning.






































































A little therapeutic colouring in of the Spring wreath and a way to adapt the Christmas wreath, on the middle card, to year round use. Making a set of (between 2 and 4) visually linked images for Helena's weekly photographic meme: Snap!

Happy Wednesday to you, wherever you are visiting me from today.

oh those cards are SO lovely. Nice mild shade of yellow. Yellow can be a tricky colour sometimes to work with, a gold shaded yellow is very bold. Your yellow looks more field buttercup. I like the stamped wreath, I could use that it so many ways. I have a veggie Stroganoff recipe - does your mushroom one call for different types of mushrooms? Yummy but I must admit it is the pasta part that I really like; alas too many carbs.

The yellow and green feels very welcome today as it's so grey here. The smell of strog is wafting round our kitchen too as we speak. I'm looking forward to it

Lovely cards Fiona, Spring must be coming soon...please! Today's weather has been the worst of everything!
My sister is a proud owner of that cookbook..reckons by now that she's made everything in it. I had a mushroom stroganoff in the pub the other night. Delish.

I love the Easter card - would never have known it was an adaptation of a Christmas wreath!

Miriam said...

Oh! Easter cards. I never send them yet my mother used to send (when she was alive) and Paul's mother still sends them. Yours are so pretty and full of hope.

Lovely cards and I bet the exhibition will be great (I assume that is THE Charlie Waite who founded Light and Land photographic tours?).
