WOYWW #140

Hi there everyone
Yes, it's that time of the week again where we drag our workplaces out into the light of day for everyone to oooh and aaah over............ Thanks to Julia at Stamping Ground.
Here we go then.
 So here it is. Things to see this week that are finished and part finished......
 On the left are these tags. The bottom one was from Lin; isn't it lovely. I spent ages chatting to her and Leandra at the bluewater hobby craft show. The top ones were some of the things I'd made for the weekend's minifest at The Craft Barn.
 This is a secret still, but there are some tantalising bits peeking out!    
 My journal page is open still at one of my last pages; I am happy with the way it turned out so I like to look at it still.
 On the right are these tags; none of which are actually finished but I did them over the weekend while demoing some techniques with embossing folders and these are some that I want to finish.
Then there's this, I actually really like the way it turned out though I was just playing so i'll finish it off sometime soon I think.
So, theres a peek into my world this week; I hope your world is full of creativity too.
Oh and a little heads up, over at The Craft Barn I'm sharing a journal made from Modroc, I'd love for you to take a look! The link is HERE and here's one page
