desk time

 can not believe how fast the weeks are going!!  its wednesday so that means WOYWW.

firstly I am showing you how I made a box of truffle eggs disappear...............and in one sitting too! yum yum...even though I did go a funny shade of green!  was almost the same shade as "shabby shutters"!!

secondly a few of you lovely ladies wanted to see my pin board......which has mix of stuff, brooches I made , badges, and a pic of our craft god  "tim"................................and finally a pic of the bomb site itself!!!!  I was determined to make quick cards yesterday using only paper scraps and embellishments (excluding my lovely gems!!!) that I never use, so that I had a little stash of cards at hand in the case of an emergency! and I got 4 made, plan on another 4 today! 

looking forward to having a nose at your lovely spaces today ladies!

Hi Mandy - Its Monday - but how did I miss your desk on Wednesday? I would have put money on the fact that i'd visited everyone...

Anyway - loving your desk and all the bits and bobs out on it... love all the things on your pinboard - its a great idea and a lovely place to keep special things... I should really save my conservatory walls and get a pin board LOL
