What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 229

Today has been all about the sewing, my trusty machine has been working hard as I start to make gifts for Christmas presents. So sadly I cannot share just yet.

Here is my desk today, There has been a little indulgent re-arrangement this week and a bit of prettying up.





As you can see there is another Papier Mache visitor on my desk and the makings of a card.


I coloured some acetate with Pro Markers and decided to go bling-tastic with the gems!

Thank you all with the name suggestions for my Rabbits, I have decided to go with Flora and Herbert.

So if you are wondering why I am showing my desk pop over to Stamping Ground where you will be able to visit many more.

  2. Hi Karen,
    Good to say hello - I'm sure I had a problem last week but here we are! Lovely card - the colours are so pretty and clear. Who would say nay to some well-placed bling, and your desk looks light and workable too.
    Thanks for sharing,

  4. Oh it does look pretty - how come my distress ink sponges look dirty and ragged in their collection tin, and yours look pretty and colourful in a pot on a shelf?!! Great light in your room too, lovely. Am super impressed at your sewing for Christmas pieces already. I have good intentions, does that count?!

    1. Book hedgehogs are easy to make. Here is a tutorial although I don't fold both ends.

    1. Not sure which shelf you mean, the larger cubes are CD racks on the side. The ink racks were for the purpose, there are quite a few online places to order them.

  12. I think your chosen names are perfect but wonder have you a name for your hedgehog? Lovely card, I thought it was some fabric at first glance.
    Thanks for visiting me yesterday - sorry I am a bit behind. Hugs, Neet 24 xx
