Helloooooo! Sorry didn't manage to join in the fun that is What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday last week, it was the first time I haven't joined in since I started back in the Spring. I was up to my eyes in samples & packing for Birmingham, which was fantastic, great to meet so many of my friends at last, putting faces to names etc.,

Well, that time of the week has come around again, if you have been on another planet for the last year, you will not know anything about the lovely Julia , who started this trend. Once a week, a group of mad bloggers share their workspaces and creations. It is truly wonderful to see so much crafting out there. Julia has gathered us all together, her blog is amazing, so inspirational, do whizz over there and take a look and if your feeling brave, take some piccies and share them with us all!

To my desk today, is a total mess! Haven't had time to tidy up and put away my crafty bits & purchases from the weekend, it does give you a nosy at what I have. My dear friend Hazel, couldn't believe that I have fifteen boxes of paper, yes I know I have a paper problem. Is there a group out there called 'Paper Horders Anonymous'??? Well I need to sign up for some sessions, I have to stroke and smell them on a regular basis, well I am coming out and am standing proud lol! No haven't had a drink yet, just high on the smell of some My Mind's Eye that I have recently brought, lol!

Anyway, have been catching up with housework and getting my car MOT'd, Polly Punto passed, yippee!! Her brakes needed tweeking but nothing too major, thank goodness. Stamps, stamps and more stamps, punches, etc., etc., what you can see all needs to be tidied and sorted. I didn't get too much time to shop at the NEC, but managed to pick up some Penny Black's, LOTV stamps, some templates, flowers & a lovely new punch from EK Success.

I also wanted to share my clock with you. I made it at a craft party last night. The design is by the lovely Cary, I have tweeked it very slightly, I just love it! it is taking pride of place on my book case, it is so beautiful, hope you like it? I have been so inspired, am going to find lots of bits to alter and hopefully get finished, lol!

Had better go, school run using a canoe in our bad weather and some DT's to finish.

Have a crafty inspired day!

Welcome to the Compulsive Obsessive Club, can't believe you're not already a member! There's so much stuff on your desk I can't tell what's new and what's already there. But it's all good, right?

Ciara said...

Which punch did you get? I couldn't see it in the photo anywhere. I NEED to see new punches! Maybe I have a punch addiction to match your paper addiction!

Love your clock :-)

Angie said...

Wow Heidi - that clock is fantastic, you are clever. Love the colours on it and the design is gorgeous.

Ali said...

Wow. Okay, you win - that makes my desk look tidy! :lol:

Always a nice thing to have your desk swamped with new stash though.. half the fun of new stash is the time taken to unpack (and stroke!) and organise and store it all! :)

Also - that clock is stunning! :)

It's bad enough that I am running nearly a week late, then I have been plagued with that pesky 503 error all night. Just wanted to drop in and let you know I was here this week. Finally found your post. Love the clock.
