What's on Your Work Desk Wednesday?

Hi fellow WOYWWers I hope you have been having a great week!  This is what's on my desk today..


Yes I have finally bought myself some copies of Craft Stamper magazine, after seeing all of your lovely creations I have decided to try to get a bit more inky!  I also made some purchases when I went to my fav craft shop on Saturday, they had 20% of everything so it would be rude not to buy anthing don't you think?


I'm really loving making mini books at the mo so I bought some little stamps that I can use to decorate them and a some words stamps too. Here is another purchase I made this week..


Twenty to 40 year old vintage buttons in the jar with the ribbon attached for £10! I love them! They were for crafting but actually look so lovely sitting on my fireplace at the moment so I may well have to order some more. They are from Cavania the link is here.

Finally that card that I had to make last week for my hairdresser, the one about either stick people, trains or morris dancers, well I finally came up with this..


You can't see it but its on linen card stock. It's not a great photo but here's a close up..


I googled stick men bride and groom and this came up so I printed it and drew over the lines again because they were a bit sketchy and used my promarker to shade around the edge. I have added glamour dust to her dress and veil, crystal flowers to her bouquet and used glossy accents on his hat.

Anyway she picked the cards up last night and loved it so I am a relieved crafter with a lovely haircut!

Pop over to our wonderful host Julia's blog to have a look at other peoples desks! The kids have friends round today so I will catch up with you all this evening and the coming days probably! Have fun!

Carmen said...

Gorgeous buttons. I agree! Order more ;)

That card is brilliant!

Kate said...

Am I the only person in the world that finds buttons scarey. Surely so many should not be kept together in such a confined space? They could become dangerous when you open the jar!!!

Omigosh Tracey, don't link e to any more beautiful sites...I can't!!! The butons are exquisite, I'm with you - you need one to use and one to display. Liek the look of your new stash too, get busy and inspiring please - love the matchstick couple - great great idea.

Gorgeous card too hun, cute little stick people

Lovely snoop!

I know I am really late this week, but I was glad I made it by to drool over that jar of vintage buttons. I would just sit and admire them, too. Lovely stick figure card. Glad your hairdresser was pleased. Happy belated WOYWW.
