Wednesday, 2 May 2012


Well, I have nearly missed the vital day of the week - WEDNESDAY - where we post details of our workspace over at Julia's Stamping Ground, and then tour around taking a peek at where great crafty creations are made all over the world.

The reason for my lateness is this mystery yellow object that appeared in the sky this morning - I think it is called the sun?!  After what seems like weeks of rain (and a storm on Sunday which saw our hay barn roof fly into the field - thankfully no animals were hurt), we actually had a nice day today.  My hubby is a mountain biker and was off to a local seaside town for a ride, so I went along to do some shopping and have a run by the sea.

My pictures this week show the mantlepiece directly in front of my craft desk - and also the top of the paper storage unit next to my desk.

My new swivel organiser thingy (only about £3 from Tesco) with my brushes, glue pens etc, a gorgeous postcard from a UK Stampers swap, a little Thank You card I made with my new CD-Rom (Nigel from Create & Craft), and an amazing 3D ATC in its own gift box (from another UK Stampers swap).  Oh, and a roll of kitchen paper!

My first Zentangle attempt, pig card, 2 other cards by local artists, fab 3D postcard from a UK Stampers swap, rock collection from Lanzarote .......

I must apologise in advance, as my slow internet means I am not able to visit as many workspaces as I want or leave many comments.
