It's amazing how time flies and to prove it...it's already WOYWW again and here's the state of my desk for this week.
What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday???
No apologies that mine is in such a state as I just dumped the contents of one of my bags there after demonstrating on Saturday at the Port Sunlight Show. A fifteen minute tidy up will put things back in order but I know you prefer something to snoop on!
Thanks to all the lovely people who stopped at the stand on Saturday... it was such a great day. Not as busy as usual except for an early squash but then again we have the 2 day Harrogate Show up North next weekend.
If you are a snooper or a spy or a voyeur then I'm sure you would love to see lots more so hop over to Julia's blog, Stamping Ground but first get yourself a nice cuppa as you may be quite a while!
Here's a close up of some of the items I demmed on Saturday. The calico tag bags (an idea I had for a gift bag and a card all in one) were a great success and we gave out some blanks as a challenge so people can decorate their own and let us share their ideas.
I coloured lots of "spoiled" waste card that would have otherwise been thrown away. Using a variety of inks, Distress, Dylusions then stamping and stencilling over the coloured ground it produced some gems which I used to make this Secret Message card.
Here's the front
The main inner section
The card itself was of great interest to those who watched my dem...
It has hidden sections which open out...
and it looks so complex but is really very simple to make and I ended up quickly making and giving away lots of blank templates for visitors.
No photographs from the show this time, not even of my, much commented on, very inky purple and gold hands so don't be too disappointed, Paul!!!
With talking so much (no comment!) on Saturday I lost my voice and after getting a soaking in Monday's rain it has developed into a really tickly cough and cold so I've been a couch potato and spent a couple of days hooking away at my crochet rippled afghans. So here they are for those of you who asked how they are getting on.
This one is getting too huge to work on in the car ...
so it kept me cosy whilst I overlapped and I started another one...all this in three weeks of spare time which would have otherwise been wasted. I love having something so worthwhile to show for it.
Why don't you try it?
