Bonjour enfants ... Qu'est que C'est?

Ha! You did n't know I could speak french ... now did ya? Well ... erm ... I can't :0) I am just trying out distraction techniques to prevent you looking at the picture of my desk! PBeer 8aretty bad huh?

Moving swiftly on ...

 

This beer mat is made using peeled paint distress ink ... Wendy Vecchi stamps ... a Copper Krylon pen and some Idea-ology trinkets :0)

I keep getting asked about prepping the beer mats and What sort of beer mats they are? and What I do with them after I have up-cycled them? ... so ... I have taken a few pictures of me covering the beer mats and will hopefully pop back later and upload them.   Beer 8

So much to do and so little time :0)

Don't forget to share what is on your work desk and link back here ... C'mon ... it can't be any worse than mine ... Can it?

Righty-ho then everyone ... I am off to get busy ... once I have cleared up some of this mess ... maybe ... I'll just grab a coffee first and ... erm ... read the paper ... and ...

errr yes there are even messier desks that are so messy that nothing is getting done on them. Note to self. tidy desk and do something to use all the purchases rather than make more purchases.

Hels said...

Now this is a BIG day for me - your desk in full view!! Love it -absolutely love that it looks like mine when I'm in the flow...I love the cheerful baskets with stuff on top of them as well as in - totally the way I work. And then your final pieces are just, well, perfect, so it's got to be OK to have a busy desk!

Susie Sugar said...

Linda I really really love what you have done with the beer mat , its fantastic I would never have guessed it was a beer mat under all your work , I am amazed .
I have a couple of packs of beer mats (just the normal square ones with rounded corners nothing special) I bought them about 2 years ago and even had a die made so I could cut the papers to fit but haven't done anything with them yet but you have inspired me to get them out and create ...............do please show us more
Big Hugs Susie xx
ps your desk looks fab too xx

Carmen said...

Love your desk - so much going on - don't be to horror struck but I clicked for a larger nosey. What's the bright green thing? It looks like a loud hailer or a torch :D

Linda Elbourne said...

The bright Green thing ... a torch? A loud Hailer? ... My dear Carmen that is one of my most prized possessions ... drum roll please ... it is the Junior Dymo gun ... and get this ... it says all the letters as you punch them ... and the bestest part ever ... it says "ouch" when you cut the tape :0) I am Loving it!

Carmen said...

A talking Dymo??? I never knew such a thing existed! Oh my! Oh my, oh my! I'm so glad you told me - have been keeping my eyes open for a Dymo... I shall now go on the hunt for your one :D :D

Carmen said...

Uhuh, uhuh! I like your way of thinking! We have a Staples not a million miles away too - I feel the urge to suggest a trip for Craig to stock up on office supplies and ooh look what else I might find ;)
