WOYWW 63

Yes its Wednesday and if I dont do any other blogging all week I try my hardest to be part of this, it also makes me stop prevaricating and get on with things so I have something to post, Julie you have a lot to answer for LOL, heres the link for the beginning of WOYWW.

So this weeks am on hols with family, at home but out and about exploring the countryside, had a brill day yesterday, made our way down to Faversham and a shop I simply had to visit, yes it was a craft shop, Pickleberry Crafts, and I think I have found my second home, Katie and Jane were so welcoming making drinks for the OH and SS and keeping them amused whilst I shopped and diverted the OH when I paid.  I will defn be going back there, they do my kind of art and classes too, yee hah.

 Then went on to a local foodie market with lots of yummy produce, then heathens that we are went to MaccyD's for lunch. . .haha.  Anyway lets get on with it, here is my desk . . .
Now first of all you can tell Ive been to McD's as there is a handful of coffee stirrers, (very useful) and ketchup pots, (great for putting paint into, then you can throw away . .  not water though, leaked out over time, oops),  On the desk and the close up is my brothers birthday card, used brown paper bag from pickleberry, background was created by pressing used masks on whilst creating another background, which i ruined and is in bin, but liked this, stamp is from 3d Jean, so hope brother likes the card and his wife more importantly (a fellow crafter), we ring each other up for comments on the cards, LOL.

Quick update on the jewlellery box, I took the majority of opinions last week and outlined the circles, but that is all I have done since.  I think it works. . . dont you?
And finally, been to the charity shop again, on my desk got a little two shelfer, which my ink pad holder stands on and gives me a bit more room, and then right next to me got this brill video holder which is double sided and mounted on ball bearings, its excellent I love it and only £4.
So happy 63rd WOYWW and as I am off will try and get around as many as poss in the next couple of days.

Hi there Pidawinkle, Thank you for your kind advice, yeah may go for the selfish route but one suggestion was to use the recipients colour scheme, that may work too:D

Wow, you've an eye for a bargain. As for my desk - it's a bureau so no probs for the knees. The best thing about it is that if I want a quick tidy I only have to close the lid! ikki

Hi Siobhan - your brother's card is fab - love the skull. And the jewellery box is great too. The Pickleberry girls used to live in Ireland, been to a few workshops and events they ran - great girls!!

I promise I'll put the flowers up on my blog when my friend gets her card!!! Watch this space!!!

Love that vid holder. And the price was good, too. I think the addition of circles to your jewelry box made a lot of difference. Amazing, isn't it?

Sorry I'm late visiting, but I contracted a computer virus. It's still not fixed, but I had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone. Happy belated WOYWW.

Darcy said...

that unit looks great, fab storage. love the jewellery box, the outlined circles are great for definition without being domineering.

I keep picking up that skull stamp but have resisted it so far.
