What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #389

Those four weeks flew by. I don't seem to have much time for my poor neglected blog these days. I taught a class this morning and snapped the contents of the kitchen table, once I'd unloaded the car. The tools of my trade.

























I've had two new ladies join the group in the last couple of months. The challenge is to build up their skills, beginning with the basics, but keep the projects interesting for those who have been coming several years. Today, that was a fairly simple box to hold four tealights. The lid lifts to reveal the contents.....

























.....and the drawer slides out to access them.

























The finished box makes a sweet little gift. That's it from me today. Linking up with Julia and the Deskers. I'm about to head out and pick up my girl. I'll be round to visit after dinner. Happy Wednesday.

Thank you for visiting me earlier in the week, Fiona. Real life has gotten in the way of computer time, and I am just now returning your visit.

That's a darling box. You are a wonderful stamper and I'm sure the ladies all love how much time and effort you put into what you share with them.

I had forgotten about the baby wipe technique, because I've never purchased them until lately. I'm so glad you shared it, and I'm going to try it now that I have baby wipes.

I think you were right about my needle. I broke it not long after I read your comment. In fact, I broke two within about 2 hours of each other. And those were supposed to be needles that would last for 10,000 stitches.

What a pretty box and I love the sentiment. I imagine it is challenging with such varying degrees of knowledge. I'm sure both ends appreciate your efforts to differentiate.

That's such a pretty box! I especially like the fact that it has a drawer AND a flap top. Now, if there was only a tutorial ... :) x

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I hope you don't mind. You were the inspiration for today's birthday card stamping. I finally found time to create the baby wipe technique!

Lovely gift box! So many uses for that; think I need to scour the internet for directions.
