After my absence last week from desk-hopping (feeling really lousy from my chemo the previous Friday) I am now back in the swing of things (desk-swinging maybe?) and feeling a lot better.

Here is my desk for this week.

WOYWW 322 5-8 Annotated

I have been having some fun this week with my new Silk Clay. Until last week I’d never heard of this product but our very own Diana (the Velvet Moth herself) suggested it and I looked it up. I have made some wings with it from my shallow wing moulds and it has dried very nicely to a light, rubbery texture, well suited to my requirements. Thank you Diana!

I have also made some more Friendly Plastic wings from my metal embellishment from Ebay (pair of wings with a heart) which are now painted with black gesso, awaiting gilding wax and red acrylic paint. Also on my desk are the metal gear wheels I got from Ebay, and a small bag of Friendly Plastic gear wheels cast from the moulds I made, some moulds (the wings and heart, and my Sculpy face moulds) and my gilding wax.

At the front of the desk, you can see that I am sorting out some embellishments and various other bits and pieces to send to a friend who needs lots of cheering up at the moment.

I’m afraid I still can’t reveal my secret projects to you (you will just have to continue to be be patient, if that is possible lol! – I promise all will be revealed eventually! Believe me, they are on the pull-out unit to the right of the picture, in all their glory, just out of shot, unfortunately!

Have a great week everybody, full of creativity and fun. Happy WOYWW.


  1. I am so glad you are feeling much better and I'm looking forward to seeing your mystery project when you are able to reveal all! I'm so glad you like the silk clay - it feels lovely doesn't it! I hope you have a good week,
    Diana xx

  2. Hi Shoshi, glad to hear the silk clay is doing what you wanted.Lolled at the daleks reference, we are so in tune! That was exactly what came into my mind when I typed it. No date yet, but I did get a call this am, and I have an appt to see Mr Radley tomorrow pm. He's on holiday for two weeks, and wanted to see me beforehand. I will let you know how it goes. For his sake, I hope better than last time, or me and him will be having words! Love and hugs, Shaz xxx

  3. So glad you are feeling better and able to "play" . Looking forward to the mystery project. Take care and have a great week x Soojay 24

  4. Hi Shoshi!
    Hopefully you've realised that I'm still having problems leaving blog comments on my ipad but I'm still lurking around reading all your posts and praying for you. You continue to be a great inspiration both in the crafting world and in dealing with pain and illness.
    I am absolutely loving reading all about your quest to make angels. It is amazing to see what you come up with and so helpful that you've also posted the things that haven't gone to plan. I can't wait to see how they come out!
    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. I will have to try and remember to check your blog out when I'm on my laptop so I can actually comment!

  5. You sure know how to build suspense, my friend. I'm looking forward to seeing the grand reveal of your current projects. I'm sorry you had another bad reaction to your chemo, but thrilled that you are feeling better this week. It sounds like it didn't take you as long to recover this time, so that's good too. Blessings and Happy WOYWW! #42

  6. Hello Shoshi, so pleased to hear you're feeling better this week and it certainly sounds as if you've been busy. I've never heard of silk clay before. I have a couple of little moulds that I'd forgotten about. I've also got some friendly plastic but didn't realise it could be moulded. They say you learn something new every day. I've only ever heated pieces up and pulled the metal comb thing through it. I must try and find it! I hope you have a happy week. Barb#20 xx

  7. nice to see your messy desk (although is isn't messy, it's neat) as that means you are creating! So you are going to keep us in suspense on the "secret project"!) hugs Shoshi

  8. So many 3D projects! How great that you are feeling up to playing. I haven't felt the vibe that much lately and after peering around others' desks I know it is the lack of sun that is getting me down. Yeah, yeah I know I live in sunny Arizona but it is summer so I keep the blinds closed (and I work all day in a cement box w/o windows) so this weekend, heat be damned I'm opening the curtains and going to play! Anyway, love all the crafts you have going on. I'm sure you will finish them off in no time and we'll see the final project and maybe, just maybe some day you'll show us the mystery thing!!!!

  9. On my blog post you wrote: "Visiting your blog has become a "spot the kitty" exercise but I am happy to say that I did manage to find Charles eventually!"

    I have another desk--my computer desk. I keep a tiger blanket (has pictures of tigers on it) on it and that has become Charles' go-to napping spot. I keep trying to get a photo of Charles sleeping on his tiger blanket on my desk but as soon as he hears the camera, he jumps up. One of these days....

    And the real reason I keep trying to do this isn't to share with WOYWW, but it is a desk so I would, because our housekeeper is always folding up and putting away the tigers (because Charles hides when she comes over). I'm sure she wonders why we keep getting it out and leaving it on my desk.

    Oh, we call it the tiger blanket, but it is really a beach towel.

  10. Glad you are now feeling a bit better and able to play. looking forward to seeing the mystery project revealed. Anne x #50

  11. Oooo, lots and lots going on today, Shoshi! Sorry you felt so lousy after the chemo - I do hope it is working well though.
    I'm intrigued by "friendly plastic" and "silk clay" - they both sound so very nice. I may have to research them... I may even have to buy some too! And Wings are a great thing to be making - who wouldn't want wings, if only they could?
    But I wonder what the Secret Project is....

    Have a lovely week. Oh, and thank you for the really great comments on my blog posts - how nice of you! XX
