July26th 2012,

So this has turned out to be WOYWT(what's on your work desk thursday)!!  I'm just so busy can't find time for anything.  Doing overtime at work, trying to grab a half hour here and there to sit in the sun (before it disappears again) and getting some of these crafting projects done.
So can't tell you what projects on my desk as it's a secret remember!!  But the secret maybe out very soon.
Nearly finished another mini album using the crafty individuals bits and bobs.  Will have those tutuorials up on my blog soon.

Will try to visit julia's blog and get onto some of your desks to see what your all doing this week.
Happy crafting

22 july 2012,

Hi everyone,

Well it's sunday morning and the sun is out.....have all Brit's forgotten what the sun actually looks's been so long!!!!

I have just made another mini in a box for a work mate who has a 21st birthday this week.  I thought that it would be great to pop in some photos of her day.  These little albums are so quick to make and real fun,  a sort of little gift and card at the same time.  I added her name and packed it up in a cello  card bag and put on some ribbon and a tag, it looked so cute.
I've entered it into the Sir stampalot monthly challenge.  Have a go with what you are creating just now. My you tube tutorial for the mini in a box can be found here

Here are the pictures...

Well whats on my work desk???   A MESSSSSSS!!!!!!

just take a look!

Well apart from the mini in a box which you can see on my last 2 posts it's just awful.  I have come to that stage where there is only 2" to work so I'd best have a clear up.

I have been working with the crafty Indivduals goodies and will soon have my 2nd tutorial project up on video for you. 

BUT I HAVE SOME MORE EXCITING NEWS!!!   It's a secret till I've finished this project which is why my desks in a state......I'm in the draft stage of chopping up bits of paper to make a pattern!!!

All I will say is that it's another big stamp company, one of my absolute favourites which  I'm sure you all love!!!!   News will follow soon....I have big ideas (that I hop I can pull off!!)...we shall see.

Off to Julia's site to have a look at your desks...Hope they're tidier than mine.!!!

Hi there,

Hope you have all had a great crafty week.

I have been very busy this past week and didn't manage to do a WOYWW last week. So i'm visiting julia's site today to catch up. 

My new job has been very busy indeed and I helped my daughter move (lots of packing and cleaning for 3 days!). I also visited the Newbury craft show with my friend Chris and bought lots of crafting goodies, just need some energy now to get going and use them. Got so tired that I had Monday off ( yes even from crating!!) just watched films and ate chocolate, a wonderful pick me up!

I also have some news  Malcolm and Jean from crafty Individuals are sending me some goodies so I can use them on some of my tutorials.  These stamps are one of my favourites and it will be great to show them to you all.  I love them because they give such a good finished image and they have lots of vintage images that are beautiful.  Here's a link to the site 

Now I'm off to look at some of your work....
