I've had a busy week doing more prep for my classes on Friday (almost finished) so my desk is full but I decided to go to the neat end for my photo where there sits a layout waiting for its final tweaks (its for a scrapbook to document a fundraising drive at my son's gymnastics club), a badge I made for a little girl I know that loves to craft too and the rose prints for my final card which I will complete tomorrow.
Last week I showed you the treasures I stored in my printer drawers and this week I thought I'd open my Ikea drawers. I love these drawers as they are so versatile and cry out to be decorated. Why did Ikea discontinue them I wonder?
On the top of the drawers is a prima butterfly and a heart shaped stone (from hubby). Top drawer has ink pads that I don't use very often, middle drawers are paper flowers and metallic threads and the bottom drawer stores away the kind of things you pick up and think I will use them one day!! There are 3 tins and playing cards, interesting clothing tags, a friends old metal belt, 5 old brass stencils (the kind we used to use a light box with) one of them is still in its packet! A packet of laser cut seashells in pastel colours, Very, very old letraset letters, a freebee christmas embossing board, pack of christmas tree post it notes and a blank wooden door hangar.
And then........tucked neatly in the bottom of the drawer 3 shape cutting templates not used once and all these also brand new never used metal templates and stencils.....I feel really guilty now. I had filed them neatly away and forgotten all about them. How naughty is that. I am going to challenge myself in front of witnesses (anyone popping in!!) to make something with something in this drawer to have on my desk next week.
Well that's me feeling bad but I know what to do to cheer myself up I am going to pop over to Julia's and visit with my fellow WOYWW folk. If you don't know what is going on then follow the link you're gonna love it!
