What, March already?

OK. So I admit it - not only has 2011 arrived (how did that happen?) but it's already March and I've been a very Bad Blogger .... no pix or posts for ages! So I thought I ought to extract a digit, and join in for the first time this year in WOYWDW (What's on your work Desk Wednesday) or whatever the acronym is.

Anyway, I have loads of 'stuff' on my desk, as usual, and am far too embarrased to show you any evidence. So I've cleared a space and voila! here are my latest purchases from the lovely Sue at PaperArts http://www.paperarts.co.uk/  Sue has a bricks and mortar shop near Stroud and is well worth a visit, but if you are unlucky and don't live nearby, she'll be happy to take your orders online.

So, what did I buy? Well, I succumbed to a couple more Distress Ink pads for my collection (Spun Sugar and Frayed Burlap, if you're interested). Sue has them at great prices at the moment and there are lots of different colours in stock, so go and snag yourselves a bargain ...

I also bought some pale pink gems (Craftaroo) at just £1.20 for 100 rhinestones. I need them to add to the 'new baby' card I've added to the photo.

The fourth purchase was a Marianne's Creatables butterfly, which I've been debating about buying for a while. Today, I made up my mind and it, err, 'flew'  off the shelf into my hands. I am thinking about using this die (with my Sizzix Big Shot) to make a Mother's Day card. If I do, I will try and remember to share a photo of the finished item with you.

In case you're wondering, also on my desk but well out of shot, are Glimmer Mists, pen pots, double sided tape rolls, memory sticks, papers, card, ink pads, scissors, tooks, headphones, camera, embellishments, mobile phone holder, glasses, blossoms, a job description (I have a telephone interview tomorrow), rubber stamps, Promarkers, notepad, tissues, baking tray, gesso, rub-ons, ink, Dymo tapes, home-made paper flowers, ribbon, cord and a tube of mini Twiglets!!!!!

Now you know whay I am NOT showing you a photo of the whole thing!


  1. He he glad I'm not the only one reluctant to share the mess on my desk - I keep wondering when exactly the hurricane went through!
