It's that day again, when we all hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground to meet up and share our crafty workspaces. Doesn't matter what craft you're involved with and it doesn't matter how big or small your space is, we're just a nosy bunch who like to peer inside other peoples' crafty nooks to see what you're all up to. If you've not joined in yet, please don't be scared, just take that photo and share in the world wide crafty space hop!
But first a little moan.....
Yesterday someone left a comment on my blog and as I have comment moderation switched on I have to validate them. It came from someone called "Michelle" and said "I've been into cardmaking lately. Thanks for the ideas!" there was a hyperlink added to the word cardmaking so I checked it out and found it took me to a well-known UK supplier of card and paper - now, I think that's a bit cheeky - trying to get a bit of free advertising like that so I'm mentioning this today so that you can be aware and watch out. You almost expect it of the scammers and porn purveyors but respectable shops?
It's ok I've climbed down from my soapbox now hehehe
After shocking everyone with my tidy desk at the beginning of last week's post, normal service has been resumed and as I'm in the middle of a mini book project I've got pretty much everything I might want to use gathered around, the drawers are open and the tools are scattered about.
Here's a close up of my WIP
Here's the book standing up so you can see the "concertina" effect of the pages - it's the folds that are causing the problem really and if I made another I'd probably sort out the "pages" before assembling it. You live and learn, eh? I really fancied the idea of having "dangly" things in the aperture, but I couldn't figure out how to make it work when the book is folded and closed up - and obviously I'm too impatient to think it through before getting stuck into the project!
A couple of weeks back I showed a little cheque/gift card holder - I promised instructions on how to make it and I've not forgotten. I've just finished the last one of these that I need and remembered to take photos as I was doing it so all I have to do is write the project up now....so watch this space, as they say.
WOYWW thread, and have a look at those early birds who've already added theirs. Mustn't get carried away with blog-hopping though as I've got crafting to do.
Thank you so much for visiting, please leave a comment before you go - it's such fun to read them and see where everyone comes from each week.
