Hello everyone well yes you know its Wednesday again and that means its time for Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday so do pop on over to Julia's blog to join in the fun. Oh how the week flies by Wednesday's comes around so quick lol. I have been quite busy this week crafting have made a few cards more bears and also some more pins. The first fews pics were taken before I started to tidy up as it was getting to much to keep pushing it back so had to have a bit of a tidy.  The odd shaped card which is basket weave in the pic is the packaging from an easter egg and thought it might come in useful for my cards, the gree bowl also has beads in that I haven't found a home for yet. You can also see a few more of my die cutters in the background. I hadn't done much when some new beads caught my eye that were hidden under stuff so of course I had to sit down and make some pins  which you can see in the picture they are white faux beads with a lovely red and silver bead in between I quite like how they turned out I have been selling my pins on ebay so it helps to pay for more beads and charms. Well thats enough from me I hope you enjoyed having a look around my craft space and thank you for visiting and any comments you may leave. Now I am off to have a snoop around other people's craft desks.

My desk is a mess as I decided to move my desk to anther part of the room which is by the window but of course it meant moving everything aound so it would fit I have 2 large wardrobe size cupboards of craft stuff that had to be emptied so that I could move them as you can imagine there was stuff everywhere it was one of those jobs you start and then think oh why did I do that lol. Also all the stuff  on my desk had to be moved as well so by the time I was done I had had enough so that is why a lot of stuff has now been dumped back on my desk which I plan on to sort out today.  Well thats enough from me im off to link up to Julia's then have a nosy around some desks.

Hello all well my work space hasn't changed much since last week the boxes are still sat there as I have been making more pins lol I so enjoy making these. My bow maker is sat there waiting to be used but I just can't get on with it need to practice a bit more I think.  Also in this pic is the necklace that I broke a few days ago and needs to be mended I will get around to it sometime lol.Well for anyone who is wondering why I  am showing my work space it is all down to Julia who hosts What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday so why not pop over and join in the fun.


These are the pins that I made this week although the picture really doesn't do them justice.   The next pic is of some decoupage which is layered up ready to make some cards but I've lost my mojo at the moment hope it comes back soon. Last pic is of the right hand sde of my desk which has a few things piled up lol The empty jar is from a yankie candle which I thought i could reuse but haven't decided what for yet, also the cuttlebug has moved a little further along since last week. Well I do hope you enjoyed having a look around my workspace thank you for looking and any comments you may leave.
