WELCOME to my little arty world! Trying to make art is a huge part of my life ... love nothing more than messing around with inks and sprays and generally making a mess!

What a milestone!!!!!
Well done Julia - our Head Desker and esteemed (and much loved) leader over at The Stamping Ground who came up with the idea of all us crafty bloggers sharing our workdesks each Wednesday

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - get it now?

So, what is on my workdesk this Wednesday?

that's what

A departure from my normal way of working as this particular project needed a different approach 

Needless to say I will avoid such a different approach in future and go right back to how I prefer to work
(ie: gesso'ing everything once stuck in place and none of this faffing around painting it first!)

You can just see daddy's hand as he looks at a magazine whilst having his coffee and two Malted Milk biscuits on his daily visit

The telephone was rescued yesterday from Great-Nephew Henry (two in March) who helped himself to it from the stand thing and proceeded to wander around with it to his ear chatting away in his own, oh so cute, developing little language
Eventually I realised I could see the display illuminated and could hear odd beeps - he had obviously managed to press a button or several
Just hope now he was not connected to someone in China
or, love this thought - trying to sell a boiler upgrade to someone

Would love to blog more on each of our special WOYWW days but only do so when I know I have the time to return any visits to my humble little site
But could not miss this most wonderful milestone

THANK YOU dearest Julia
for all the friendships forged here, support and sharing of not only crafting and art but the roller-coaster that is life

Happy 400th WOYWW fellow bloggers!!!

  3. Oh, I'm so pleased that our paths crossed too Debbie! It has been so wonderful to get to know you over the past couple of years (and to travel around Scotland with you too through your pics!) I'm loving all those gears and cogs strewn over your desk, you'll have to let us see what it all ends up like. And I really hope that Henry didn't call China, lol! I can't believe he's two though, where did that time go??
    Hugs, LLJ 7 xxx
