WOYWW 203

Morning All.  There is a queue for the shower this morning so I thought I'd nip down and post this picture of my desk.


My desk is rather Distressing today!!! ha ha.  I am making a project for a challenge and am in the process of making some teeny tiny paper bows in all the colours of the Distress Ink Rainbow!  It is a labour of love.  I learnt how to make these bows at the weekend and they are so fab I just had to share.  Last night I uploaded a video tutorial and so today I am sharing it.


Hope you all enjoy it and give it a go.  Don't forget to subscribe to my You Tube channel if you want to hear when I upload my next video.  It doesn't seem long ago that I shared my first ever tutorial.  I am really enjoying making them even if it does take forever to upload them to You Tube!

I'd better go and chase my son out of the shower if I want to have some hot water!  See you when I am decent!  If you want to find out more about the greatest desk hop in the world then please follow this link and enjoy!

If you leave me a comment, and I hope you do, I would love to know where you are in the world today.

Happy WOYWW to you and thank you for popping by X

  17. I love the color swatches up on your wall...I do that too and find it really handy. Now maybe if I just stayed with one type of product I could remember them! It's fun seeing all the bows and ink blocks. I'm at lunch at work and am letting the video load so I don't have to start and stop; looking foward to seeing it! Hope you have lots of time to create this week!!
