WOYWW #293

Welcome to my desk, courtesy of our hostess Julia.  I have so much going on I am getting dizzy!
Centre is one of my new stamps, bought with the knowledge that I have a fair few cards to make for men - something to do with Steam Trains you understand!!  When I saw this stamp at Chocolate Baroque I knew it was made for me, there was one other but .... it was out of stock!!! A little further over is an embossed piece of green cardstock - hmmm!
I have yet to make the insert for my sympathy card .... it is for Poppa (see my post on Recollections and Memories).

I took the photo just after I came back from my crafting day and placed the pink hat on the desk. Jenny made it for me out of some left over project wool - all the right colours to match my hair... how thoughtful is that!!!  I LOVE it!

So that's it for this week, I'm off to visit a few desks around the world ..... and I won't leave my sofa!!!


  1. I am not sure if its my ipad or that your photo is rather small but its 3cm x 3cm, so I am squinting to see whats in the photo LOL. Enjoy using your new stamp
