Hi Mandy
Your desk looks scrummy. :) I love your Tilda image... can't wait to see your finished card. Have fun tonight & don't worry about getting to the Post Office... I know exactly what it's like during the school hollies. Have fun. Gez..xx
Oooh I've just spotted WALLE on your desk. Enjoy your little jars. Can't wait to see them filled next week.

Pam said...

Hi Mandy thanks for visiting my desk, I see you have some ikea jars like me waiting to be filled with some nice stash?

The buttefly stamp on my desk is from a stamping up set you get 3 large butterflys one small one, a flower and 5 sentiments.

There is a project on my blog a few posts down that shows most of the stamps in use.

Just spotted you litle bambi as I'm typing how cute is that.
Hugs Pam x

Your colouring of Tilda looks great so far.

I think us crafters all get as obsessed over Ikea storage as we do our stash!! Most of my room is ikea stuff including the desk and shelving!
Your desk is looking very productive. I haven't even attempted to put a stampotique image on that blog header you did for me yet. I#ll get there soon xxx

What a pretty desk, I love the pink drawer set at the back and have those jars from Ikea... great for buttons and large beads etc!!

Julia Dunnit said...

I see you fell for the litlle roundy jars then. Hmm, now you have to radically increase your button collection! Madhatters craft group - really, do you wear silly hats to craft - I do hope so!

butlersabroad said...

Yep another Ikea fan here, my desk and shelf unit is from there, I don;t have any of their storage as I work for a large Japanese company and I get given beautiful (empty) boxes from business trips the Engineers take out there, I have some beauties and have been thinking about doing a blog post just on them!! Surprised no-one else has spied the chocs on your desk today!!!

Paula Gale said...

Helen said...

Oh, I love Ikea storage!! I haven't been to Ikea for ages, I don't have a car and my local one isn't easy to get to by bus/train - and how would I get all those things home!!!

Linby said...

Carmen said...

I neeeed to see more of your pinboard AND I notice you have Mr Holtz's new book... worth the buy? Am thinking about seeing if anyone has it at Ally Pally at the weekend ;)

Darcy said...

I love those little Ikea jars, I have 20 in my craft room full or ribbons and buttons, and aanother 15 in the kitchen for spices lol Keep an eye open in the pound shops, as they sometimes get the exact same little jars in.

Kay said...

I'm sure the Tilda will look fab when you finish with her... but tell me about those fabby looking truffle eggs!!!

Twiglet said...

Angie said...

Cathy said...

love Tilda!
I love finding new ways to store things.
We have a new Ikea here in Adelaide (new?, well it's been open for a few years now, but I must confess, I have not been yet.)
I am scared I will never leave ;-)

Cher~ said...

Lovely desk and what fun stamps! Do you have any trouble storing your Distress Inks on their side? I have my stamps in a great drawer, but too far from my desk and am looking for a different storage option.

Mummylade said...

I love the big eyes in the background =)

Julie M said...

Ah yes, the joys of IKEA storage!!! As soon as my craftroom is finished, I can put up my new Expedit unit - very exciting!!!

Don't forget to post the finished card!
