wow this is addicting, I get excited on a tuesday evening and try to make my desk look industrious and creative for when I come home from work to do the post.  Dont suppose I'm no 1 today, LOL

Thanks to everyone who visits and leaves a comment I love hearing from you all and try to get back to snoop at yours too, some peeps I cant seem to leave a comment so sorry about that.

This week I am altering a jewellery box I got in our local charity shop for £1.50, Ive only just started, Ive gesso'ed some of it and have pulled the nasty pink lining off, was sat last night trying to pick off the remains of it, got the wardrobe side done and one of the drawers, doesnt come off easily, grrrr.
Sat and watched BB whilst doing it, anyone else watching, I've watched all the others so in for a penny in for a pound, I've got a strange thing for John James for those in the know!!!  In my minds eye I have a great vision for this piece, luxurious inside and journal effect painting on the outside, whether it will turn out like that is another thing, LOL.

Also on the desk my order from 3d jeans arrived today some alcohol ink and two u/m rubber stamps, that are cute but quirky.

Spot the pride of place Kathryn Wheel ATC, have sent her one of these below and the other is for the lovely Julia, to thank her for my easel.

Happy WOYWW'ing everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's looks like it'll be a great project and such a bargain too! Looks like you're in a conservatory, does it not get too hot to craft? Have a great weekend.
