WOYWW or What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday is a fab idea started by Julia on her fab blog, Stamping Ground. Click on the link to discover a whole world of crafty spaces and inspiration.
On my workdesk this still dark Wednesday (how depressing that I have to turn the lights on when I get up now) is far too much non-crafty stuff. Due to the agricultural show last week, dentist visit (my first operation is on 10th September), and now my mum being in residence (should I raise a flag?!), I haven't really got to sit down in my craft room. Post has been opened and piled up, magazines briefly read, competitions entered online, free gifts stroked and now it is all a bit of a mess.
My first photo shows a card I made for my hubby's elderly uncle, who is sadly not too well. It is difficult to make a card in that situation, and even more difficult to choose a verse/sentiment for the insert. However, this cute teddy and subtedly cheery wording seems to be suitable.
The second photo should show a brief snapshop of one of my desks this morning, if I have managed to take a photo on my new phone and then email it to myself (it doesn't seem to connect via Bluetooth). I am making a Xmas card using the stamps and papers that came with Quick Cards Made Easy magazine, and tried stamping with my new Staz-On Dove Grey inkpad. This was a little too neutral, so had to add some detailing with a fineliner pen after colouring with my Copics. Colouring at such an early hour whilst my hands are stiff and sore, and my eyes were struggling to focus, proved to be a challenge. Later today I will probably take one look and scream - but, for now, it will do!
Apologies for the photo quality. My new phone isn't as good in the camera dept as the old one, and the light is not great.
