Thanks for popping into my blog this sunny day - the sky is blue, the windows are open and all I can hear atm is birdsong. Bliss! For some unknown reason I'm feeling quite chipper today, I'll be feeling even better in a bit because as soon as I've uploaded my blog entry and linked to Julia's wonderful Stamping Ground for the weekly "What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday" hop, I'll be making myself a great big cappuccino.
Not too untidy today - well by my standards that is. In the middle of my desk is a project I finished yesterday. I thought I'd finished it the day before - but I flicked through the pages and found a whole page I'd missed out - good job I checked before sending this off to Anice. I guess if when I made a book I worked through from the front to the back, filling the pages as I went then this wouldn't happen, but I don't think I've ever done it that way. Even with books with identically sized pages I fill them in random order - is that odd? Do you do it that way or are you a more ordered front-through-to-back page filler?
Hopping around the WOYWW links each week I see lots and lots of wonderful inky creations, and crafters who have stacks and stacks of inks and stamps - so I thought I'd have a laugh this week and show you the sum total of my inks and stamps collection. Are you ready?
I bet you're shocked at my lack of stamping supplies, aren't you?
The box on the left has clear stamp sets and unmounted ones - most from the now sadly defunct Self Addressed Kits people, and most, I must admit unused. Next to that there's a drawer with an assortment of "proper" stamps, some foam stamps and s load of those free ones you get on the front of magazines. The little black box on the left is full of those little "Snag 'em" type stamps. I guess if I use a stamp once in three months that's about all - but I do use my inks a lot. The drawer on the right holds my regular sized ink pads and the tray at the front has the Cat's Eye's and dewdrop type pads that I use most of all. And that, my inky friends is it! hehehe
If you've not joined in with the WOYWW hop, then click the link to Julia's BLOG and find out all about it.
I hope you've enjoyed visiting and will come back again soon. Just before I go and switch the coffee maker on, please take a look at the post directly below this one, as the flower tutorial I mentioned last week is there - I'm really hoping you'll find it useful and if you make any flowers following it, please come back and let me know.
Right that's it for now,
