Good morning! It is good morning because I think we have spring at last. It’s a lovely March day out there I know the calendar says April but we have a lawn full of daffodils and the fruit trees are just in bud! Anyway I must stop being typically British talking about the weather and introduce my workdesk as that17.04.13 1’s what you are probably here for. :o)

I have two photos for you – the first is how my desk has been for most of the week, laden with my Ally Pally haul. I bought the 8-drawer set from the MDF man and they will be altered with the gorgeous Graphic45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers 17.04.13 2peeping from the bottom of the pile.

And the second photo shows my desk as it is this morning with a minibook I have made for my UKS teamie, Janet, and the box of Washi tape and Baker’s twine I have ready to send to the winner of my wee prize for the UKS blog hop. I chose the comment left by Stacey ScrapRed by the way. :o)

OK some desk visiting is called for via Julia’s blog Stamping Ground. Hope to see you there.

Oh, we didn't know you had any washi tape (insert heavy sarcasm) :)

We spy smiley pot, or at least his smile in the background.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the MDF drawers, it took us about TEN years to decorate ours.

Waving hi from the bears @#78 this week
