Wednesday 17 April 2013


Good day to you all.  I am taking a while to rev up this morning.  I hope you are faring better!  So what is Wednesday like in my craft room?  Well there is this new addition!  It is on wheels and is proving to be very useful.  I have all my scraps in the files on the top all nicely colour and pattern sorted and then I have decided to use the rest of the trolly to put the tools I use most on as I seem to spend quite a bit of time transferring tools back and forth between where I craft and where I video.  It is working well and I am using up and putting away my scraps more too.

Then there is my desk!  Covered with......crikey what a mess!  I have been playing with a set of Baby Jane papers from Cosmo Cricket and have had fun making a layout and some cards.  Now I have to clear the desk so I can finish prepping for my card class on Friday.

This chair is in a reasonably tidy place in my craft room and has everything cut and sorted for the first card we are making in class.  See I am a bit organised!

 Here are the cards I made with my Cosmo Cricket Papers.  I love the cheery patterns on this yet another grey day - who has pinched the sun????  Let me know if you have it ;-)

I had fun making the spinner which I haven't tried before.  So much fun I made another one!!

I made an embossed grid on the front of this card which made it easy to create a neat patchwork border.  I think you can just about see the grid on the photo.  It has a pop up heart in the middle.

I think all these designs would be a great way to use up mix and match scraps of paper too.  Where is that trolley of mine!

Now the question is  To Tidy or to Desk Hop..........Desk Hop it is then!!!!  Follow me to try desk Hopping for yourself.......especially if you too want to put off the tidying ;-)

Thanks for popping by x

  3. Hi Helen, Happy WOYWW and thanks for your visit too. I love your trolly, looks a fab storage idea. Your desk is full of lovely things, great cards with such cheerful colours and patterns. Haven't got the sun either, we had 3 days of sunshine here on Essex coast, thought spring had arrived but overcast today and have turned heating back on. Have a great day... Gill x #82

Love your cards as well...I'm dying to know what the item is hanging on the door? just up and to the left of the blue chair image??? It looks very iteresting!!

  19. What fun cards, I love Cosmo's bright papers. Your desk looks inviting enough to get really creative. Running late, but being gone the 2 days wore me out! Drove home in a snow storm, still very cold, strong winds, and snow on the ground here. Unreal.
    Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend
