It's a varied untidy desk his week, in fact it's a table looking out onto the garden where I've been messing about.
Why am I showing this today? If you visit Julia, our Boss, at stamping ground blog, all will be revealed and you can join the weekly mega snoop around the globe of all the loony lovely people brave enough to show the state of their creative workplace. It's a revelation!!
I prepped simple craft make and takes for the Summer Fete at the Deutch Kirche (German Church)which I attended with my friend Jacqui, in the centre of our city, and whilst it was mainly for children, quite a few ladies enjoyed having a go. Here rest the remains of my endeavours still waiting to be cleared. A nice bunch of lavender there too drying in the window.
We made simple, small, gift packages in which we popped a chocolate and the mini handbag with a bangle handle holds a post it note pad. They were all really popular and a wide range of ages and levels completed them successfully. Some came back to make all of the items through the day! It was really good fun and such a happy day and, with almost everyone speaking German, I felt as though I was back in Germany with my family. Shame I never had a minute to take some photos of the lovely handicrafts cakes and bread on sale. I did sample the most amazing flowery herbal punch... Waldemeister Bowle... delicious and quite potent!
Initially I created the robots as an item for the boys to make but the girls really loved them too and some ended up decorated all pink and sparkly!
There is acetate behind the apertures which is effectively "see through" when coloured and hung in a window.
Use brads to attach the arms and legs.
If you fancy keeping any children occupied through the school holidays you are welcome to print off these templates, 3 different robots with 2 on each sheet. I find that I can cut out duplicates if I lay 1 or 2 plain sheets behind the print out (print it on card).
Older children would probably be able, with supervision, to cut out single printed sheets for themselves.
More fabulous WOYWW Birthday ATCs to share and thanks for these 3 gorgeous gals, go to, L to R Bridget Larsen, Cardarian, and Tuire.

Exciting times next week as Doone and I will be flying off to Slovenia, woo hoo!!! I'm so excited! We're going to wear our WOYWW badges in a far off land and visit our lovely WOYWWer friend Cardarian who has so kindly invited us to craft and have fun in her beautiful country. We are taking a couple of T shirts and a few pairs of undies and the rest will be crafty stuff.... I do hope Slovenia knows what it has got coming and I wonder what will be on our workdesk next week?? Be sure not to miss it.
