Good morning all hope your all well and busy creating.Well this weather is ideal as like winter here in Norfolk past couple days wet and very windy causing trees to block roads...not nice .

Well the girls return to school today and if it wasnt for my friend they wouldnt be going.Why ?you ask as the council have had months to sort out bus passes but nope have they .So have spent since last wednesday trying to get through.Apparently temporary ones are in the post....Gosh not sure where there coming from sure must be o snail mail!

Anyways onto this mornings desk.The task in hand is to to go right round the world looking at fellow craft desks .Seeing What our crafting buddies have been upto .It's great really as you sit here on this miserable day having fun all thanks to our big boss Julia who invented this marvelloes wednesday morning ritual!So pop by here blog HERE join in too.Make new buddies ,get inspired,Have fab fun Wednesdayall from your own home!

Here's my desk this morning

A wee bit tidy for me thats me saying it! Well yesterday inbetween the phone calls re bus passes .I managed to make a tag for the Sunday Stampers Challenge over at Hels Blog

So nothing really on my desk it's so clean and tidy must have had a few mad moments
and cleaned away yesterday after finishing my doesnt happen often .
Now the piccy below is of a lovely we shelf i came across in a charity shop last thursday.The bargain price of £1.50 .So i have of course filled it with my distress stains and some of my inks pads i use the most /or regularly.
So what you think?Here's the delema do i alter it or keep it as is?Please i would love to know your opinions. ??

Lastly some goodies arrived in the post for me this week .Some lovely stamps from Andy Skinners New release,a gorgeous stamp from La Blanche ive never used these before was surprised when i opened it up as it is white plastic/foam.So will have to see how it stamps.
Also crafty individuals 4 wee piccys of London stamps.So im hoping that i will get chance to play today once the girls gone to school done couple jobs then crafting time!
And of course my journey around the world to see all those lovely desks ,see what youve been upto!

Angie said...

That is an amazing tag ....and your note book is stunning the colours you have used on both.

Now as for those shelves ....are you inspired? ...if not, wait until you are ... live with them as they are ... they look good in your workspacexx.

Thanks for popping by. Your stuff looks beautiful. Think there are a lot of FMS sufferers out there.In fact there are many people with an invisible disability. Crafting has kept me sane and given me motivation. Sadly I get very exhausted mentally and physically which stunts the crafting a bit. Every FMS/CFS/ME person has their own personal journey but I thamk my lucky stars for everything good in my life and crafting is one of them. It's brought me lots of lovely friends too. Hugs BettyXX

Bettythebaglady said...

Dear Jude-have just had a peep at your other blog and was saddened to hear about your eye problems. I have a crafty friend with MS who is blind in one eye. She is in her sixties like me but has had MS for a long time. If you get chance let me know in my comments how you are going on. If you don't want it publishing just put do not publish and I will delete it from my comment moderation page. Many gentle hugs BettyXXX

Sunshine Girl said...

Love the tag and book cover - love your tidy desk too! Personally I would alter the wooden stand but then I actually have four items like that that I have been meaning to alter for what seems like years and they still havent been done!

Sam said...

That tag is lovely and your book! I think you should alter the shelf - what a bargain! Why do I never have bargains like that? Love your new stamps. Let me know how you get on with the foam one - my sister loves them.
Yes Dawn B has left QVC and gone to Create and Craft! The Die was on the recent Craft Day!

Sarah Anderson said...

ME? I'd mean to alter the shelves and never get round to it! Love your tag and the book cover is FaB!

Ali said...

That is a very tidy desk! I'm envious! :lol:

Your tag is gorgeous and your new playthings look like lots of fun - I've got a couple of the La Blanche stamps and they stamp just fine. :)

P.S. the weather is *appalling* in my neck of the woods! :/

Ohhh Snap said...

Glad your friend could help the girls get to school. Love that little shelf, my advice (free and worth what you've paid for it lol) is leave it as it is until you need to alter it :D. Hope your Wednesday was fabulous. #83
