Follow me to Stamping Ground where our hostess Julia links us up to crafting friends from around the world. Why not join in too?
My own desk is in a muddle which does at least mean that for once I am doing some real craft!
So what can you see? There are three projects on the go; (four if you count the knitting pattern at the back that I have just downloaded!). I am having another go at kirigami. Buoyed up by the success of my first attempt I thought I would do something for my grandson's birthday. Let's just say there is a dinosaur involved, and it is proving a lot more difficult than the lion family were. This is just a rough trial using ordinary copy paper to see how it goes together. Hopefully it will be easier when I cut it in card. I am hampered by the fact that I couldn't survive in here without both the ceiling and floor-standing fans on, so every time I put a piece down, it blows away. (I turned them off for the photo!). You may also just glimpse a rather cute little dinosaur which is also a trial to see what colours I am working with. It is a digi stamp and I will be using it on the front of my card. The copics are out to colour it but I think that was a bit optimistic of me for today.
Also out are the sticky carrier mat for my silhouette and some green vinyl, along with a photo frame that I picked up on my last visit to Ikea, which is about to be altered. I have no idea how, but I'll have to do something with it!
I think for now I had better settle for just one of these projects, and clear the rest away. I may just go and start the knitting!
Just for fun here are three more photos. I come down to my room every morning to check e-mails etc and usually the first thing I do is turn on the fan. Immediately Arwen comes to my table and lays out in front of it like this. She might stay there all day if I go off and forget to turn the fan off. I don't blame her really. I feel the same.
Today, I left my desk in it's current state, and went off to feed the dogs, make a cuppa etc. This is not something I often do because I am likely to come back and find all my bits and pieces scattered, but the heat makes Arwen lethargic, (and me!) so I thought it would be safe today. But I came back to find her trying to find a place to lay in front of the fan! I shouted at her and she fled! I had my camera in my hand so I was just in time to catch a blur of white fur.
She's back again now, and I've given up and left her to it. It is only a trial run after all. I'll fight her off tomorrow when I do the real thing! She can be a real a pain sometimes, but I would really miss her if she wasn't in here.
It is late on Tuesday night now so I will tidy up and get to bed. I'll be linking this up with Stamping Ground in the morning. See you all over there.
