Here is week six for me at What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) and all I will say is I am addicted to snooping. Yes, it's lovely to see where everyone crafts but it's also fab to see the different creations eg cards, scrapbook layouts, knitted items, cooking, canvases, sketchbooks etc etc. I've seen "other creations" which have then given me ideas for something for a card so I always have to have a pen and paper to hand.
No closing of the craft cupboard again this week. At this rate it will stay open me thinks until Christmas Eve!!! On my actual desk are some papers I have printed out from the Debbie Moore Birthday Bears CD as I have been asked to make a card for a lady's niece who is going to be three. There's also some profile images on the CD so I took them into Word, inserted them and put a box around and will cut them out so that the little girl can have a colour of them. I have quite a few crafting addictions - card candy (I was once mentioned on QVC by Dawn Bibby as I mentioned to her that I'd got a contagious condition "card candyitis" thanks to her), adhesive gems, ribbons, fibres ................ well you'll have to wait for another instalment to find out more addictions. Buttons the Keel Bordeaux dog is keeping a close eye on his mum's fibres for her - lots of yummy colours and textures in there. There's also some Lili of the Valley cute squares all distressed/glittered and the rest waiting to be glittered. These images are fab and of such good quality. Then there's some Cute Santa images all coloured in from Shelly's Images and also some cute dog images from Designed 2 Delight - all I need is just a crafting pixie to make them into cards for me.
Here is a close-up of one of the cupboard doors. Here you will find pictures of two of my crafting idols - Dawn Bibby and Tim Holtz. No I haven't met Tim - I can dream of that one day. Just wish I was well enough and had the funds as he's doing an event here in the UK next year about 14 miles away. I have though met the lovely Dawn twice now and just wish I lived closer to her shop to visit more often. Underneath are various sets of See D's stamps and a set of peg stamps a blogging friend gave me which I use a lot especially for a bit of decoration on inserts.
Here are a few of the drawers pulled out for people to see inside - yes you ask and I obey. The bottom one has my double-sided tape. The one on the left hand side has got my favourite Versamagic ink pads and the box at the back has the tear drop ink pads. I have put all my ink pads inside the drawers in plastic containers in case any leak as I don't want the material drawers being ruined. The drawer on the top at the right that is open shows another of my addictions - ribbons. Yes, they aren't neat and tidy but at least I can quickly see at a glance a colour I want and as they aren't long pieces of ribbon this system works for me.
