This is my messy desk in the utility room, showing the stage I had reached this morning in Wanderlust Week 16 with Dyan Reaveley. It is now late afternoon so I have a couple more stages to show you later on...
If you have been reading some of my April posts you will know that when I saw
Effy's Blog Along I thought I would share some 'diary' posts, along with some of the crafty things I have been doing.
This is also my desk picture for WOYWW 620! As it is Wednesday again, I am linking to the Stamping Ground. I started sharing my desk on WOYWW in June when we were in the middle of lockdown - it certainly did help me remember what day it was! If you want to know what WOYWW is all about please follow the links...
Anyway today I am sharing not just one desk but several of my working areas - not all, as I also end up at the dining room table and in the sitting room (my pens and pencil cases are all in there at the moment - I like to doodle watching television).
This is my computer desk, with Cricut on the left, and space to work if I move my keyboard. You might be able to spy a heat gun, my way of eking out the very last of a glue bottle, a new journal (Arrived today) and part of a clock mechanism containing cogs that Kevin thought I might be able to use!
A second area in my craft room - here you will see a couple of Tracy Scott stamp sets. Still out because I just decorated this triangular shelf thingy with them:
Next, a third area in my craft room - on here you will see some stamps from The Rabbit Hole Designs - I won these in the Coffee Lovers Hop. They had been opened by Border Control so they took quite a while to get to me. I don't know why they were checked - maybe just a random thing, or perhaps because all the descriptions included 'caffeinated', or maybe the ex-ray machines had picked up an enclosed paper clip. I will enjoy using the stamps!
To get back to my Dyan Reaveley inspired journal page, I am about at the doodling stage now.
I ended up making a stencil from Mylar on my Cricut as I didn't have anything appropriate. The next picture shows my 'using up' page with ghosting from the stencils. I rather like it!
What else have I been doing? A little bit of water colouring - you might remember the first picture. These lobsters were inspired by a plate I have, that is painted in a similar way.
I don't know about you but I love the memories that Facebook throws up. Today I was reminded of this amazing sculpture that I saw in Manarat al Saadiyat, 8 years ago, when we were living in Abu Dhabi.
But back to today, once again we were out and about. We visited the Botanic Gardens in Cranbourne again - such lovely trees!
P.S. If you read my last post regarding the mouse, we went into the local Supermarket earlier to look for a mousetrap. That section of the shelves was completely bare. It must be mouse in the house season! It certainly is getting chillier!
