woyww

Here is my desk today, pretty  tidy and devoid of anything creative. I have been making stuff but as it is for my new weekly challenge I can't show you yet.














The book on the desk were xmas gifts. as was the fabric and the dvds. I also got new spray inks, they are on the blue stand at the back, and I got some new acrylic inks too. I decided there was just too much stuff loose on my desk so I bought a third set of drawers from Ikea and now its all tidied away, though actually i might pick up a fourth set next time i go, as I have filled 18 little drawers and still have stuff left over.

The suitcase is full of small alpha stamps, the case has needed decorating for several years now, I will get around to it one day.

hanging up on the pin board is a gorgeous set of 3 mini canvasses, in turquoise and blue with a giraffe on them. I received them as part of my secret santa gift from the circle journal group.

    Top tip re your drawers from Ikea - get the next set quickly as I have had to buy three different types as they keep changing them!!

  16. Beautiful canvas secret Santa Darcy, how nice to look up and see that. The little alpha suitcase is lovely, no doubt you would decorate it beautifully, but it's quite lovely as it is! Off to look at the Postcard Challenge now.

  18. Hi there. Thanks for visiting my blog. I've been crafting (almost have the wreath done) and sneaked off to see a movie. Your desk looks really nice - big and full!!! The giraffe is very cute - I hadn't thought of stacking the small canvases to make one little piece of art.

    Happy New Year to you, my blogging buddy!
