WOYWW? Shock, Horror, Eeek! There's quite a lot, I must confess.
(The blog candy is at the end of this post)
My desk mess has built up over the last couple of months, in between all my travels as I dumped things on there in between each trip.
I can almost hear the sharp intake of breath around the world as you see this quite exceptional melange of crafty stuff.
Well now you can heave a collective sigh of relief as you appreciate the start of my clean up. That's my handy carousel/lazy Susan with pots of essentials still to be sorted but there is an area of clear space and that's essentially enough for me to craft on at last.
Did you spot these two who look like they are up to no good!!
They'd better watch out as they are going to be altered by me one day soon.
If you're brave enough to face more desks at Julia's stamping ground, rest assured that almost all of them will be far less of a shock than mine so you can boldly go where so many others do each week.
I attended a super workshop at Vicky Stampers on Saturday when Neet of Hickdorums blog was our tutor. Neet led us through many exciting techniques for producing special effects using various forms of metal and as my desk was clear I had another little mess about with some of it.
I also filled the first page in my new art book too but it has a way to go yet.
This is my favourite example from the several pieces I made on Saturday.
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned some blog candy here (in celebration of my June birthday and reaching 123,456 hits on my blog) It's still running and will close on Sunday night 15th July.
Still time to add your name, so here's another tempting glimpse of what's on offer but there will be a few more treats included and something hand made by me.
For now, there's a plate of beautifully detailed Christmas Stamps, a Crafty Individual vintage lady tag stamp, 3 rolls of washi tape, a border mask of gears, and a sheet of raised pearly dots.
The main item, to be won in the draw, is a good quality 7x10 inch Daler Rowney spiral bound multi media art journal, with magnetic clasp and a paintbrush inside.
Everyone is welcome to enter, just leave a comment to say you'd love the goodies.
There will be an extra entry for followers.
I love quotes, so if you leave me one of your favourite quotes you can have an extra entry, (and I can use your quote!) and everyone else can enjoy reading them. They're great for journalling too.
Here's one from me......
"In a world where you can be whatever you want,
Please, only follow me if you are interested in popping in, now and then, because you are genuinely interested in my blog and not just because of the candy.
My intention is to give this chance of a treat as a thanks to all the people who spare time to visit my blog as I do appreciate every visit and every comment.
