WOYWW 102

It can't be Wednesday again already, surely? Check out Julia's new look blog here  for this week's instalment of "what's on your workdesk Wednesday" - week 102 and nearly the 2nd anniversary.

There isn't much on my patch of carpet this week either, a couple of cards I made for the Grungy Monday  challenge on Monday (obviously) only I made them on Tuesday so they're still hanging around, together with some new stamps that arrived since you were here snooping last!!


So here is a pile of what to non crafters looks like a load of rubbish, but to us is that pile of scraps that really, truly, honestly we WILL use one day!!  Not to mention doing "something" with that mannekin/dummy thing  - next to the tubes of paint (the round bit is the base) that I bought a couple of years ago!! 

So, what have you all been up to?  Hope you get time to stop by Dragons Dream Tag it On today - shameless plug - we'd love to see you visit and join in.

The quality of your scraps looks very very different to mine! Mary Anne did a fab job on one of those mannequins, about the time you bought yours. I have one too. Naked, of course. You do yours first!
