Trying desperately to finish off my tags for Laura Dennison's tag swap. I'm on the second batch now. I kept to the same layout as my French Country version but now I am in Shabby Chic mode! I think I should get a new cutting mat as this one definitely pre dates the invention of the wipe clean messy mat I have on my desk below!! Each blemish is a record of a crafty creation so maybe I'll keep it after all!
My other job on the desk today is sorting out my printer drawers. I love sorting my crafting stuff! Strange I know. I bought the drawers a few years ago now and I really wish I had bought more. I bought them from an auction (the only one I have ever been to) and I thought I had bought 10 sets of drawers complete with letters for £40. Turns out I bought one with the option to buy the others (£400 I definitely wasn't planning on spending)! As you can see they are perfect for storing little bits and pieces. I am sorting things into colour groups again as they have gradually gotten more and more mixed up over time.
I kept a selection of the letters that were originally in the drawers that were the larger fonts. I can actually print with them. They are very heavy. I wrote all the letters on when I sorted them out but the circle stickers on the trays are original to whoever set the printing press long long ago.
Thanks for popping by for a visit. I am off to post this on Julia's Blog if you want to follow me there to find out what this WOYWW is all about. Then I will follow the links I find there to pop in on your desks wherever you are. Happy WOYWW to all.
