WOYWW 177

24.10.12 2

Wednesday again! They do reappear quickly! What’s on my workdesk? Well first of all I want to show you how my reorganising is coming along. Here is how I usually take my ribbons to crops >>>

and here is how they are transported now …

neat eh?

So onto my workdesk where I have a few projects at various stages. At the back are some almost finished Christmas cards that I had intended to be classy and white but I failed miserably at heat embossing so now they are glittery silver having been well-Stickled. The rainbow of butterflies is the start of my page for this month’s Scrapology challenge. You can also see a photo of delicious little Leo, the subject of my next layout24.10.12Thanks for popping by my workdesk today. There are loads more workdesks to visit at What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday. I hope you’ll join in – it’s great fun nosying around where other crafters craft.

Looking very good, the tree stamp is very classy, I love your organised ribbons and the butterfly layout is shaping up very nicely for that gorgeous little boy.

What a lovely desk Sue, love those butterflies so can't wait to see the finished LO.

Those cards look lovely too, heat embossing is about the only thing I am good at with stamping! LOL

Happy WOYWW

House of Bears said...

Wow, your ribbons are very neat. Occasionally we make a stab at sorting ours, but with so many bears they soon become messy again. I see the smiley pot poking out there too.

Thanks for visiting the bears this week

Hi Sue, so nice to see those ribbons now looking neat and tidy, just the way I like them :)

Lots going on your desk - looks like your heat embossing was a happy accident because those trees look lovely from here. And I just love your rainbow of butterflies, not to mention the photo of that little sweetiepie.

Thanks for sharing and thanks too for leaving a comment on my post today. Happy WOYWW, what's left of it, and have a great week. Elizabeth x #114

Oh and forgot to say that I love the ribbon after, I have seen before :D

SueH said...

I think your Christmas cards still look very classy Sue, glittery and White, you just can’t go wrong. Loving your LO too. I’ve seen lots of pictures done on canvas like that and they are so pretty.

Happy Crafting!

Well done on the ribbon! I love organized things... especially in a nice color-sorted rainbow-y order as you've done. (So obviously I'm a pretty big fan of the rainbow-y butterflies, too.)

Thanks for complimenting my cat! She is very pretty -- although not so much in that picture, she's much cuter when not glowering!

Linda said...

Your cards may not be white but they certainly look classy. Cute photo.

Ali said...

Oooh those butterflies look gorgeous! And the christmas cards re very elegant. :)

Glad you're enjoying WOYWW so much - it's rather addictive, isn't it? :D

Oh I would love to raid your ribbon stash!! I have been using up my junk beads this week to make little scrapbox dolly arms and legs. It's surprising how many I have used - mostly old wooden and plastic ones - so I shall be looking for old necklaces at the car boot sale next week! x Jo #79
