I have been so jealous looking at the photos from the NEC and hearing all of your stories. So wish I could have been there. I treated myself to some new digital stash instead. I watched some of the Project Life programmes on Create & Craft, and was tempted to buy one of the sets. However, then I discovered it is all available digitally - so have got myself some sets of cards to print off and make up layouts when I eventually have some spare crafty time. If you don't know what Project Life is - take a look at Becky Higgin's website (she was the clever one who invented it!). This is the digital site.
For those who do not know what the strange letters on my blog title are - WHAT IS ON YOUR WORKDESK WEDNESDAY was invented by Julia and you can find more details over at her blog, Stamping Ground.
I am getting so upset at the terrible scenes from the Phillipines. It really puts life into perspective when you see so much destruction and suffering. It also made me think about how technology has changed this world so much. We can now all see these images from so far away. It is not that long since there was no television, telephones or internet.
I am sharing a few photos with you this week. I have been busy crafting - still making up cards from http://www.craftsuprint.com/, as well as some ATCs (some of which are being hand drawn/painted, wish me luck!) and charity cards. I counted that I have 21 Xmas cards made now, and will be getting lots of digital designs printed up to complete the number I need to send out. I have also been attempting to keep my craft room tidy, but one area is still woefully in need of attention. My paper and card storage, as you can see on the photo below. The chest of drawers is full, but organised, and I have started sorting scraps into the plastic boxes. However, the pile on top is threatening to take over, and I will get that sorted next week.
A longer view of one end of my craft room. The tables are reasonably tidy
and there is room to craft. BTW - my bin is not so full this week!
Milky the Cat - who has decided that a bed next to the
radiator (just behind my chair) is a good place to snooze in the winter.
