Lets get the important bit over first - linking to Julia's blog (she invented this weekly addiction), Stamping Ground. If you click on the link you can see more details and join in.
I am only showing a small part of my desk today, as I have actually not done any crafting - except for finishing off a birthday card for my niece. I have started a new business, selling greeting cards/gift wrap/stationery gifts etc, and they are NOT handmade. Sorry, I almost feel like I have betrayed my crafty friends - but I really needed to make some money and get out of the house, and this opportunity just seemed to leap out in front of me. Already making new friends just from the other ladies doing the same thing in this area - and enjoying the challenge - but it is taking over my time whilst I get the paperwork/website/stock sorted - and most of my desks are covered in stuff I will not be showing you. There will be a link to my website on my blog for those who are curious!
On my main 'deckchair' you can see my trusty notebook, which I write lots of lists in and projects to finish/birthdays etc. In front of it are a fab ATC I received as a private trade through www.atcsforall.com (his name is Irving), a cute fox badge I bought at a Xmas Market on Saturday. Not sure what I will do with the badge, but it was too wonderful not to buy! On the little easel to the left is a glass owl tile, which I bought at another craft market in the summer. To the right is Enid the momjii. The funny ball-thingie is my fab computer mouse/tracker ball. So much easier to use than a normal mouse.
I am thinking that now I will not be making cards, as it takes me so long to make just one, and also I have the choice of hundreds of designs in my brochures. Any crafting time will be for scrapbooking and using my sewing machine - 2 activities I have been wanting to get on with for ages.
I promise to show you a more interesting deskshot next week!
Hope everyone is well and not panicking about less than a month to Xmas. We know that it is on the 25th December, but each year we still are surprised!
