Welcome to my desk this week.  I have had a busy week and weekend so I haven't done a great deal of crafting at my desk.

I have been learning how to do a Blog Candy Giveaway and I think I have done it so if you want to join in just click on the photo on the side bar and if I have done it correctly you should get to the Blog Candy Post!  If it doesn't work.....then just scroll down a bit!

I learnt how to do a sticky post without messing up my fingers this week!  I also managed to make a button to publicise my blog least I think I have :-D

 The photo of my desk is of the remainders of the small mess I made making a tag for the Tag Tuesday challenge this week.  I had fun making paper vegetables to embellish my tag.  I was so pleased with them I made a quick tutorial (see side bar on left) before I stuck the cute veggies on my tag....I wonder if I can do peas in a pod!

I have a bit of sea glass that may become another tag, a punch and embossing folder from the Stampin' Up Fairy (Alison!) and a pile of photos waiting for me as I would really like to do a bit of scrapbooking this week.   Oh and not forgetting the Blob!

The Blob (not to be confused with Blog!!) is not an extra large lump of sea glass (I would need a big tag for that!) but something I found growing in the back of one of my drawers (craft ones) yesterday.  It is most of the leaked contents of a bottle of Collall glue!  It didn't do any damage what so ever to anything else in the drawer it just settled in the form you see before you.  It may become my crafting stress ball now!  It seems a shame to throw it away when it grew so neatly :-D

I am keeping it short....ish this week as my hubby is treating me today!  It means I will be doing my desk visiting tomorrow.  I hope you don't mind a straggler.

Don't forget to have a look at my blog candy and leave me a comment there if you are interested in joining in.  I am trying to get as many followers as I have years!  I don't feel any older than yesterday - do I look it I wonder!!

Happy WOYWW to you all and if your new around here and don't know what on earth this mad woman is rabbiting on about (it my age!) then follow this link to a  very happy place full of crafting fun!

  2. Nice blog candy and would love to join in but the requirements are too much for me. Firstly I don't "do" following, well the ones I have signed up for in the past I don't "follow" (or know how to) so have stopped signing up for anymore as I just don't "get it". Have a cool birthday when it comes round and I love your BLOB! BJ #24
