Happy Wednesday to everyone. Trot over to Julia at her Stamping Ground to join in with this weekly sharing of crafty workspaces.
I am up relatively early this morning with stomach cramps - and a general lack of wanting to go back to sleep - so here I am at my computer and getting some useful stuff done.
My desk shows how I left it after deciding to start another journal !! I had bought one of those 'cheap' ring binder scrapbooking/journalling kit-thingies, which comes with some ready-printed double sided pages and a few stickers etc. I used my new Amy Tangerine rubber stamp kit (a bargain from TK Maxx) to put one of my favourite sayings onto a piece of scrap paper that had been a tester for stencils, and that will layer up onto one of the pages. I added some journalling, plus various pens to embellish the front page - and that is all I have done so far. You can also see one of the Docrafts magazines, which came with some fab wooden postcards.
As a bonus I am showing you the view of the storage to the side of my craft table. I put together my second Ikea Raskog Trolley yesterday (definitely getting easier each time I do it!) and have put my smallish collection of mixed media tools/materials on it so far - and my super-size roll of kitchen paper. I also treated myself to the plain wooden drawers, which of course I do intend to decorate one day. My set of Derwent Inktense pencils sit on top of that nicely. The wooden chest of drawers have stencils in the top drawer, and then a drawer for completed all-occasion cards, followed by the drawer for Xmas cards (which has 2 left over from last year).
If you wonder what the bright pink plastic thing on the top is - well, it is one of the course markers for the mountain biking course at the 2012 London Olympics (our friend was a marshal).
Well, that is it. Nothing too exciting. I look forward to touring around lots of workspaces this week.
