I know we always say this, but I can’t believe another week has gone by – it has gone so quickly! I am delighted to report that Mr. Mojo and Mrs. Muse are well and truly back, and I am enjoying their presence immensely, and have forgiven them completely for bunking off as they did.
Here is my desk as it was late Tuesday night after I dumped everything on it – I’d been doing some painting downstairs.
A quick tour. On the far left you can see a demolished decorative carrier bag that my hubby had receive a gift in – it is made from gorgeous black and gold paper in a geometric design with black side panels and some very nice black gros-grain ribbon handles, all of which I shall be able to use in projects. Next, my regular matt gel medium. In front of my paint brush tin, the two boxes with my drawing pens (Turkish Delight) and coloured pencils (cigars). Just peeping out, to the right of the boxes, is one of my Fun Cats that I was working on last night, with the original drawing on top – scroll down to the previous post for details about this.
Just above the cats are some new Perfect Pearls. I shall be doing a blog post about these and my other new stash in a few days. White acrylic paint to the right of these, and some general detritus from the art journal project – teabags, scraps of paper etc. For once, a clean jar of paint water lol!
Sitting on top of that is my completed art journal page on a tea theme – again, scroll down to the post before the cat one to see details.
To the left of the art journal is a pile of new stash – I am grateful to our own WOYWW-er Diana Taylor for her info on the sisal fibre that’s at the bottom, and the pink pack next in the pile which contains a lovely flower stamp set she recommended. On the top are a couple of clear stamp sets that I got on Ebay this week – the lower one is smaller than I expected, but will still be useful.
Talking of new stash, I have succumbed completely to a totally irresistable temptation to buy some absolutely gorgeous new flower stamps – they are on their way! (There goes my Christmas money…) Details to follow later.
I’ve had an incredibly busy week, including dealing with various things that have gone wrong in the house, and several outings. This week seems to be a bit quieter which is good because I’ve been able to have a rest! Next week I’ve got the dreaded dentist, and going back to the chemo unit to have my port flushed, before which I am hoping to do some more baking for the chemo-ites.
I have joined a church craft group called KnitterNatter (you can imagine which activity occupies the lion’s share of the evening!!) which meets fortnightly on a Thursday evening. Next meeting is tomorrow. I have decided to be good and devote the time to working on various UFOs I have. They all take up far too much room in the studio and it’s high time I got to work on them. More details later.
Happy WOYWW everybody, and have a great week full of inspiration and productivity.
