WOYWW!

WOYWW3006

Morning all! Yup ... This is a very early post ... I shall be up bright and early this morning as I will be setting off for a Christmas Screen Workshop at L.B Crafts in Olney. Don't worry ... I have Crackers and Christmas music ... if my ladies don't feel Christmassy by the time they arrive ... they sure will by the time they leave :0)

It is Wednesday ... so here is my Workdesk for all you WOYWWers ... if you have n't a clue what I am talking about ... well you need to pop over and see Julia ... she explains everything so well! Talking of our Julia ... I see she got a mention in Craft Stamper for the fabulousness that is WOYWW ... way to go Julia!WOYWWa3006

And if you are a WOYWWer ... and you happen across this post ... pretty please will you link me up???

Nothing ongoing on my desk as I am working on secret squirrel stuff ... but you can still see the last card I made ... I popped it in the easel that Julia and Mr Julia made for me ... I am going to keep a card in it at all times ... that way ... I will always have a card when I realise at the last minute it's someone's birthday :0)

ZZproject2c0710 I have swung today too ... just to show you that I have replaced my tatty old shelf unit with a cutting station. Sounds posh huh? It is basically a pasting table ... a luxury one mind! ... which I have loaded up with lots of cutting equipment ... plus ... I could fit lots more drawer units under it ... so it made total sense ... to me anyways! :0)

Finally ... I have made a holder to store my new and very yummy Claudine Hellmuth brushes! A very simple construction ... similar to the one I made for the Masterclass in June's Craft Stamper using my Bind-it-all ... but this time ... more red and more butterflies!

I will catch up with you all this evening!

Bye for now!

Very pretty brush holder Linda and your desk is looking very tidy this week. I haven't taken a pic of mine yet so will have to wait until I get up now.

I don't think I've seen a pasting table quite as posh as that one. Lots of lush goodies knocking about and I love your calendar. As I said the other day that card is stunning.

Enjoy the class today!

Hugs

Great work place & I love the Pen holder Liz

voodoo vixen said...

Oooh. love the cutting station idea, so nice to have everything in one place and the brush holder is lovely indeed!

Carmen said...

I have serious brush envy! :P Mine are the set for a quid job where the bristles all fall out. Craig talked me into just getting those (well, actually didn't take much talking - I'm a stingy mare!) until we saw if I stuck with the painting or not - I have been a fickle mistress to most of my crafting obsessions but the painting has stuck so am making rumblings about getting some decent brushes. You recommend the CH ones?

I just voted for you on the Dorset Cereals thingy down there. I tried to enter that ages ago but never heard back so got to help one of us get that wee egg cosy! ;) They are who I won that big box of stuff from that I yapped about on last weeks WOYWW ;)
