My it has been a long time since I posted on here. I have had an amazing month starting with the storm which was the worst here for twenty five years, but which pales into insignificance when compared with what they are facing in America right now. Then there was a fantastic fortnight in Ireland, which, if you are up for a long story, you can read all about, and see photos of, on my other blog. Finally there was the week of family time when all five of our boys flew over to surprise us on our birthdays. They stayed for a week and we had a great time together. Since then all I have managed to do is sort out all the photos from each event, make folders of the better ones in my picaso gallery, and write posts about them on my blog.
Now it is time I did some crafting again so here is my desk as I start working If Sandra sees this she will know what it is for as she kindly gave me a tutorial for it yesterday. But I'll post about it properly when the card is finished. I am using two of my newer Memento ink pads, a lovely Chocolate Baroque corner stamp, and a very ancient Posh Impressions poinsettia stamp. The tatty sheet of paper at the side is for me to stamp off some of the ink as I only want quite a pale frame to my paper. At the back of my work is my new guillotine. I have just replaced my X-cut that I have had for years. It was such a good little cutter and didn't take up too much space on my desk, but I had had it for years and the blade was worn out. The old one was blue, and now it is pink, bu it seems to be just as efficient as its predecessor.
When Chocolate Baroque launched their new range of clear stamps last month, I was lucky enough to win one set in their draw, and I have since bought a second set, and a lovely Prima mask, so they are all sitting on my desk still in the hope that I will get the inspiration to use them .
Well I'm afraid I have done a long post again for Workdesk Wednesday, so if you have read down to here, Well done, and Thank you. I shall now link this to Julia's stamping ground, and tomorrow afternoon I shall visit you and see what you are working on this week.
