It's happy desk day again - WOYWW 589 - time to share your crafty spaces - head to Julia's for all the info
With not having a morning at Kew I thought I'd have lots of time at the weekend to get some crafting done...
I had a couple of birthday cards to make....
and the Dina Wakley stamp set for the second one
Then I turned my attention to my journal
so although i didn't get to go toKew last week, you still get a glimpse!

I am not starting by saying.. it's Wednesday again! But it is time to join in with Julia and the gang at the Stamping-Ground for WOYWW
I started another journal page on Sunday but messed it up so I'm only sharing the first steps!
maybe by next week I'll have thought of something to cover up the stage I don't like!
I was lying in bed on Sunday morning watching you-tube, as I do; and saw a video with some fabulous new Dina Wakley goodies. When I got up I went shopping.... although the new goodies I'd seen weren't yet available I did have a mini splurge!
To my surprise I got home from work on Monday to find a "despatched" email and they came to work today (prepping this on Tuesday as usual)
I had a beautiful time at Kew last Saturday - took loads of photos (more than usual) as the early autumn - and it did feel like autumn on Saturday - light was staggeringly beautiful
the post is here and here are the normal teasers!

Bank Holidays are all very well but I am sure Wednesdays come round faster when there is a Bank Holiday in the week! So we find ourselves sharing our crafty spaces again with Julia for WOYWW
I managed to have some play time in my journal at the weekend
more circles, stencilled with texture paste (Golden fibre paste)
the weather where I am wasn't great for the weekend but of course I did go to Kew -link here

Morning happy deskers - another week has flown by and it's Wednesday again, time for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday... week 586... head to Julia's for the link and info...
Another week where there has been no crafting.. apart from one tiny little stamped image...
I used a stamp from aDina Wakley set and cut it apart, to finish the journal page from last week
so in the absence of any crafting, I'll share a few photos from last Saturday at Kew - if you want to see them all, head here
thanks for looking, hopefully (possibly) next week there'll be some crafting to share!!

My week off flew by, even though I did nothing - it was far too hot for going out anywhere so apart from some shopping I just - did nothing! So before you know it, it's Wednesday again and time to share our crafty spaces with Julia at the Stamping-Ground
Towards the end of the week I managed a bit of a play in my journals
then added some stencilled figures
and doodled some marks with a Posca paint pen
It's finished apart from a caption of some kind
I always think a journal page needs a caption of some kind
haven't had the time or energy to find the right one yet though
I did another page with the wavy flower stencil to match - or complement - the pink one from last week, too.
this time stamped it straight onto the journal page
By the weekend after some impressive rain and thunder it was cool enough to take my weekly trip to Kew - pics here I was in my element with all the raindrops!
I'll be back again next weekend, as I have another time slot booked.
I will visit your desks probably after work, we're short staffed this week and it's busy so not getting a lot of time at lunch to stop!

Morning fellow deskers and welcome to another WOYWW It's that time of week when we meet at the Stamping-Ground with Julia to share our crafty spaces
It has been far too hot to do anything much on my week off, not got round to sorting the Paperartsy stamps yet and I am glad I didn't book any timed slots anyway I would normally go on a week off, it would have been unbearable to be out and about - shopping was bad enough. the main reason I didn't book anything (apart from the forecast which was thunderstorms that haven't happened yet,) was to avoid travelling on trains that will be busier than the Saturday ones to Kew
I did play with one of the new stamps from last week though in my journal
when I was out on Monday I went into Smiths and bought a few extra Pitt artist pens including some metallic ones
the Sizzix package is a metal plate for die cutting intricate dies and according to friends who have it, works a treat
Last Saturday's trip to Kew can be seen here
I left before it got too hot!
I'll drip around to your desks soon!
