There's a right old tip!
Yes, even more of a mess than usual.
It's my first day back crafting after waving our visitors off yesterday and I have some very difficult cards to make before I do anything else. I've done the decorative bits of the cards and I'm procrastinating now because I have the wording to deal with next.
I thought I'd be brave and pan down to new depths and show what's going on below the desktop.
If you guessed there'd be more "stuff" under there, you'd be right. The 12x12 case is full of larger scraps of Bazzill type card, the plastic crate is full of things that "might come in useful one day", the tin has scraps of silver and gold card/paper in it. The top drawer has the punches I don't use so often, the middle one has loads of pens and markers that I really should sort out, and the bottom drawer has stuff like Friendly Plastic, Paperclay and various moulds. It used to have casters but the drawers were so heavy that it kept buckling and tipping over, so I took them off
One of the reasons there's so much stuff lying around is that it's been difficult to decide what to put on these cards - sympathy cards are never easy, but in this case the colours, style and sentiments I tend to fall back on in making them aren't really suitable. Which is why I keep getting stuff out, then rejecting it and reaching for something else.
The excitement of the imminent birth of a new member of our extended family turned to sadness last week when the little boy was born very, very poorly and died after just a few short days in this world. What can you say in such circumstances?
Well, I must get on and finish them.
I'll be checking out the other WOYWWer's blogs later and will be back with some crafting from last week asap
