Being Frivolous

What I should be doing is getting down to making a card for Friday's DCM - it's my turn to set the dare and I came up with an idea ages ago, popped it on our little calendar and promptly forgot about it.  Till last Friday when I looked to see who's turn it was this week, found out that it was me and then saw what I'd actually written down.
So, as I haven't the foggiest idea what to do I decided to mull it over while doing other things.  That's my excuse anyway.
The other things include making the mess I'm sharing with my fellow WOYWW (what's on your workdesk Wednesday) nutters, who bravely take camera in hand  and each Wednesday take and post a photo of how their workspaces are looking atm.

 If you'd like to see more crafty workspaces, head over to Julia's blog for all today's links - maybe you'll join in and show yours too - it would be fab to see even more crafty works stations!

There is a point to what I'm making in all that mess, but not much point in what I'm making iykwim - I'm busy making something to show the wonderful "Frosted Lace" Flower kit from Creative Treasures - all will be revealed if I ever get it finished.  The actual thing I'm making is just a silly bit of frivolity - well, its a dark and dingy day and I need a bit of frivolity to see me through it.

Here's a mini pizza box I made at the weekend using the same "Frosted Lace" kit along with lovely MME "Bloom & Grow" papers, cute, eh?

All of the flowers, ribbon and lace I've used came in the kit.  I used some of the lace to make a rosette to frame the other flowers.  I absolutely adore these colours, and they are are easy to add just a hint of an entirely different colour to for different looks. I made last Friday's DCM with these colours and added some purple, for this box there's a s plash of orange in the papers.



Right, I think it's time I had some lunch - my tummy is growling away, good job you can't hear it, I tell you!
Happy crafting

ooh, matchboxes, pots and a BiA..what's cooking in your creative brain? And by the way - nutters - a far deeper, meaningful and accurate description of the WOYWW crowd than Linda's 'cult' explanation...am off to see if I can make an acronym of nutters!

Lovely colourful shot, I think I said it last week but I ADORE that little wooden shelf with all the brads and eyelets stored on it. The box is really fab too, beautiful papers.

Excuse me Mrs……who you calling a nutter.
Oh, ok we are a bit of a nutty crowd but we do have fun don’t we!

Your desk looks to be the usual Pandora’s box that I’ve grown used to seeing but the trouble is, every time I visit you I end up with several more things on my ‘want’ list…like that Creative Treasures kit.

Thanks for dropping in on my blog. The blue on my work surface is a really beautiful ball gown that i had to take in on the bodice. I had to take beads off to do this and then had an hour of sewing beads back on when it was altered :-) a real labour of love :-) A x

Fab little pizza box and good to see your workspace looking so productive - lol! I've just blogged a card for your sketch challenge, BTW. The BS blog won't let me leave a comment so I thought I'd tell you here!
