WOYWW - My 2nd week!

As so many of the lovely WOYWW-ers said last week, I will be doing this every week!
I've cheated slightly, in that I have 2 desks on the go at the moment - the one in the craft room:

as you can see I've had a bit of a stamping spree - never done that before as I always get REALLY frustrated. I think StazOn ink has helped though, as I didn't have many smudges at all and was quite pleased! So there's a few Tilda's, Pickles, Onions & rabbits, as well as my new Whimsy Wings of Hope stamp that I won! I have been asked about the Pritt roller glue - we've had it for ages, but the non-perm roll just ran out, so I've had to put in a permanent roll til I can get a replacement. They're so expensive - if anyone knows a cheap place to get the refills please shout up!!

and the one in my bedroom:

As expected, I haven't actually had much time to do cardmaking since Thursday with my Aunty staying for a fab weekend, but have done a bit of beadwork (as I bought some more jewellery making kit at the NEC!!) I've been making some tassles from a pattern in a book she bought me for Christmas!

I will upload my first proper gift that I gave as a late birthday present to my Aunty soon!

Look forward to see all your desks too! Pop over to Julia's to see who else is showing off their crafty havens!

yes, well spotted, a Karen Doodles bear with flowers, he's on my 'to-do' list! (half finished) But he was facing the wrong way, I've now flipped him over so he faces the other way. I'll have to put both cards on together! ((Lyn))

I did that with the stamping last year, just sat down (with StaZ-On too) and just had a practice session, it was very worthwhile for me to see where I was over inking or rolling the stamp a bit. I learned a lot! Love the little tassels you've made, they look great hanging over the spine of a card.

I can SOOO relate to having more than one desk going at a time. :-) Love all the images waiting for attention. Oh, and the flowers are so pretty in the window.
