This is it!

WOYWW2810

No ... Not the new Michael Jackson film documentary thingy ... but the state of my desk today!

I can't believe it is Wednesday already and I have only posted once since my last entry into WOYWW!TC1a

You are right ... my desk is a complete tip ... but I am in the middle of creating ... I will tidy up when I have finished ... erm ... possibly :0)

I am going to change the subject really quickly now ... the second ArtsyCrafts weekend took place last weekend so I can now share my finished projects with you. TC1Out of the four fab projects we did this is my mostest favourite piece. I LOVE it! Now the regular viewers among you will know ... that for me this is a rarity ... I am my most severest critic and it is not often that I like some of the things I make and I rarely LOVE them! 

This project was called a "bit of me time" and I was lucky enough to be near Dan for this one! Why lucky you ask? ... well it was n't just his scintillating company, charm and talent ... and I am not shallow or nuffink ... but he had the letter "L" in his kit :0) Thanks Dan :0)TC1b

I added the little glass jar when I got home and filled it with the little watch parts we were given for decoration ... I have always wanted to bottle time ... well has n't everyone!

To think this started life as a little white box ... clearly demonstrating what wonderful artists and teachers Leandra and Lin are!

Right ... I need to finish creating and then tidy up the mess and then hopefully create some more ... Catch you later!

Helen said...

it looks wonderful!! I am envious of a desk to work at - I have to make do kneeling on the floor (and there isn't much space what with crafting supplies enclosing in on me - just as well I don't get any visitors... there's no room for them!) I was just thinking how tidy your workspace looked!

Minxy said...

What a fabulous weekend that must have been. Bet you didn't want it to end!

I love the love the box. All the little details are fantastic and the 'bottled time' is pure genius.

Nettie said...

there's a saying that a tidy home is a sign of a life unlived . . so an untidy desk must be a sign of a life fully lived! that's my excuse anyhow! love, love this project *sigh* Didn't know I have a namesake ;o) so this is Nettie in SA!

Debi said...

Nigel said...

Some people have way too much talent ;)
Your project is stunning, congratulations :)

Kathy said...

I love the way all those bottles, boxes and other stash bits seem to be banned from the white workspace - they look as though they're itching to get on there, but too fearful of what might happen is they do

Liverpool Lou (Anne) said...

Well it's just a crafter's desk! Love the 'time' project of course:)

Leah the Orange said...
