Hello, here is my desk today, lots happening - my recently purchased but already well used hot glue gun, beautiful free papers from Scrapbook Mag, some stamped images from stampotique range just looking for a card, scrapbook page or journal to live in and can you see my Zentangle I've been working on? It's taken ages but so far pleased with the result and will post a picture when finished.

Thank you to Julia for hosting and to you for stopping by.

Today I was playing with my sewing machine,

- All packed away now but realise I need to use it more as it took longer to thread it up than it did making anything!
My purpose? Trial run for a little project I'm thinking of doing, learnt quite a lot but need to improve - still, I had fun

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to Julia for hosting WOYWW

It's a black and white photo today (hope that's allowed), the reason is that I have been working on my February Calendar journal page today, not yet finished but don't want to spoil the surprise in colour.............

Looking at it do you think the glass holds the remains of a delicious drink? No, it's the mucky water from painting!!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Extremely messy desk

A surprise day off, it was sunny so the garden beckoned, but now I feel like my back can stand no more and it's time to get into my craft room for a bit more fun!!

Happy January

Having fun today playing with new pastel chalk pencils, a great pressie from my good friend Jackie

It's been a long time since I have had the opportunity to colour and these are a brilliant product used along with a blending pencil really keep a strong colour.

I used some previously stamped images from the Stampotique range which are great for colouring
