Wednesday, the middle of the week. Time for our world wide crafty desk hop hanging on to the coat tails of Julia from the Stamping Ground blog. I’m a bit more untidy than I was last week, you all thought my desk was way too tidy, don’t think you can level that accusation at me this week!
The card I was working on last week was finished and posted here, but I haven’t cleared anything up yet so a lot of the clear stamps over at the top left are from that. The mat has some left overs from a Halloween card I made (that was posted earlier today), so there’s stamps, paper, twine and ink lying about from that. The pile of Christmas cards from last week is still there, I did manage to print out the inserts for them but need to stick them inside. You might spot two odd looking spherical things that look a bit like large salt and pepper pots! I was in Michael’s last week (buying trimmer blades so nothing exciting) when I spotted two pots of decoupage glue/sealer on clearance, so at half the price of a bottle of mod podge, I snapped them up. I’m hoping they’ll be just the ticket for sealing the carousel I showed you last week. It’s now had three coats of paint and is ready for the next stage, I need to decide what papers to use with it.
We had a stunning Autumn weekend here and I’m going to share with you just one of the many tree photos I took at a local park last Saturday as it’s so beautiful.
I’ll bid you adieu on that note! Enjoy your desk hopping.
