What's on your Workdesk Wednesday? 246

Today is my one year Blogiversary..... I have shared 263 makes and 33 messy desk Wednesdays with you all. Thank you for following me on this journey, I can't wait to see what the next year will bring. To celebrate I will be giving away a little prize, so if you have time leave a comment for a chance to win.

Now for my desk....brace yourselves.....


A little more messy than in progress experimenting with bridal hair slides.

Vintage lace decorated with beads

                                                         Brooches and buckles

So if you enjoyed a trip around my desk and would like to see more pop over to Stamping Ground where you can visit desks from around the world.


  1. Congratulations on your anniversary ..... 33 messy desks .....the hair slide looks fab!

    The hair slides are very pretty.
    My eyes jumped to your fab containers that look like they hold Copics (love things that look good and are useful as well).

  7. Congrats on your blogaversary! Were all 33 of those desk shares messy?! The wedding finery is looking good. I like the vintage hair slide, fancy schmancy.

  8. Oh yes, I forgot I was going to say that YES! Getting paint or glue all over is exactly why salespeople were trying to talk me out of buying a rolltop to craft on. It was replacing a rolltop desk that I crafted on so I knew I could do it without mess.

  9. Congratulations on your blogiversary. Loving all of your treasures.
    Happy Wednesday,
