WOYWW 191 - Lots going on this week...


Hello fellow WOYWWers!!

Gosh, the days disappear at a frightening rate, don't they?

Here we are at our weekly desk-peek, hosted by the lovely Julia at her Stamping Ground.

As you can see, I'm rather busy, but I haven't painted this week - you can see the old diary I'm practising in, at the bottom of the pile!

On top of the diary, is a wee creation I'm making for Artella's Mystery Muse - I am to send two handmade items to somebody, whose name I'll be given on 1 February. I'll show it, when it's finished :)

Here's a close-up of the card I completed this week, featuring a quote from my box:


Under the card is another wee creation, which I can't show as will be a gift for a friend who reads my blog - sorry :(

Also, on the desk is a 7 Gypsies journal - I was going to add new pages, but someone has run off with my hole-punch... *sigh*

So, I just stuck in an art-piece which I received before xmas...


... it's like a little altarpiece, but sadly, the card isn't strong enough to stand...


... it's still gorgeous, though :)

And I'll round off with a Papaya postcard bearing a favourite quote, which one of you eagle-eyed peekers spotted on my desk last week...


Amen to that!

And I'm sure I'll find lots of amazing creative goings-on to wonder at on every single desk I visit...

May you have a wonder-full week xxx

Love the card - I make waterfall cards sometimes and they are likely to topple, but I find adding another layer at the back keeps them standing. Give it a go - maybe it'll help :)

Happy WOYWW

I reckon your hole punch is probably with my foiling kit, having been gathered up by the Borrowers. If I find them, I will send it back to you. The sentiment on your card is absolutely perfect. thank you for your visit this week. Hope you have a productive week. xx Maggie #11
