Yes it is Wednesday again so time to have a quick peek at how other crafter's like to work. If you are not familiar with this idea, pop over to Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground, and read all about it.
My desk is not very exciting today, but at least it has something on it now, unlike the clean and tidy space it was first thing this morning. It is getting very sunny here most days, so even if I didn't have to move everything out of the cats reach, I would still have to tidy away each night, or the sun would bleach and warp it all.
So here we have it. The box spilling over on the left is my Christmas backing papers as it the 25th today, so Rudolf Day, when the aim is to produce a Christmas card. The tidier stack on the right is bags and boxes that I have just prepared to take to my monthly parchment craft class tomorrow. I am afraid I am not a very good student. My eyes are not functioning very well and I find it hard to concentrate, and when you are perforating parchment, just one tiny hole in the grid too many, and you have ruined the whole project.
In the centre are some sticky ribbons, and other non-sticky ones that I am trying to match to a die-cut. And then there is my cuttlebug and two new dies that arrived this week. The white ivy circle is a Marianne die and the purple one is a Cheery Lynn die. It looks almost circular in the photo but it is actually a very pretty oval, the shape I like most for small images. The little bird is a die I have had for a while and hopefully he will be sitting inside the ivy circle on a Christmas card before the end of today.
And of course, my ever-present fluff ball Baggins is sitting on my die storage folder. He has been diagnosed with an over-active thyroid but the medicine is not agreeing with him, so he is mostly sitting on or near me and dozing all the time. Hopefully, yesterday's blood test will enable the vet to adjust his dosage so I get my loving, funny cat back.
Now I will visit some of my Wednesday friends. Forgive me if I don't make it to too many of you today. My eyes won't allow me to look at the computer screen for long at a time, but I will do my best.
