WOYWW #240

Good morning friends

First What's on your Workdesk from me for 2014. I hope you all had yourselves a merry and blessed Christmas and New Year. I have neglected my blog over the festive period and I have been busy catching up on stuff that can't be shared yet but slowly and surely I think I am getting there.
So here is my desk.....
 Looks like fun hey!? Every square inch covered.
 So, starting on the left side, a calender made last year, some vintage style wooden tags and yes, I actually have some chocolate coins left over from Christmas.
 Then, I picked up these gorgeous metal oak leaves in the seasonal bargain bin and I couldn't say no to this stamp either at that price either.
 Centre stage today, is this unit I'm working on, it is a fab piece and I'll be sure to share it properly once I finally get it finished.
 I received this fab book from one of my daughters for Christmas; it is very inspiring and as you can see, I've got hold of some siligum ready to make moulds.... Then some "tache" stamps; a new Jofy mini too, all great.
But, of all the gifts under the tree Christmas morning, this had to be the most quirky and fun thing. Something to alter (After I use all the bubble bath of course!
So, that is my workspace this week, for more desks, hop on over to Stamping Ground, the platform for this weekly gathering hosted by Julia.

I guess if it stands still long enough, you'll alter it. Enjoy your bubble baths before though. BJ#21

Happy New Year! Your desk is filled with lots of crafty goodness. I am loving your french/paris piece you are working on. I had to chuckle when I read about altering the bubble bath container later on, that will be a post all by itself I am sure! Winnie#44

Hello Neil, Happy Crafty New Year! Looks like you've hit the ground running with lots of lovely things on the go. I particularly like that 'centre stage' project. I have some of the mould maker as well - but you use yours before I do mine. Happy WOYWW Cindy #46

He rather looks like a friendly version of the Creature from the Lagoon. What fun you will have with him. Can't remember in the Christmas rush if I properly thanked you for getting back to me about your binding method. I sure appreciate it. Your desk is alawys, always fun. Have a great week.
