This is my first attempt at WOYWW and the more I look at it – the more I see how representative it is of my recent and current – existence. I’ve been spending most of my time here lately – No heating or hot water and one oil filled radiator can do that to a girl. (this is the warmest place in the house right now!) Hence two phones – in case of calls from plumbers.
One a much more positive note – there is a bag filled with lovely bits of rusty metal, driftwood and a couple of (very clean and unsmelly) fish skulls – the bone almost looks like mother of pearl. Its waiting until I get a few minutes to put it into some kind of shadowbox arrangement along with some photos we took on our day at Dungeness.
There are a couple of projects – one a simple(ish) alteration of a paperchase notebook and the other a waxed book that we made from scratch at a workshop I ran at the weekend. It did turn out to be more of a craft bootcamp than a gentle day of paper-crafts but I did want to pack in as much technique as I could. They were a fab group of ladies and I had a fantastic time – I hope they did too! It is a Very Messy Desk – it gets repeatedly tidied but just goes back to its bad old ways 🙂
Normally my almost full set of Distress Inks would be on there; but they’re still in the box from the weekend – just as well – I’m not sure where I’d put them!!!
