Afraid my table this week is a little bare. Was away for the weekend and find that journey down the M6 and M5 to Bristol increasingly hard to do, still it is worth it to see family, especially my youngest Granddaughter Kitty - she is growing up so quickly.
Even thought there is nothing creative on there at the moment I thought I would show you my favourite storage box.
It is a Really Useful Box with a pair of trays in it that are full (and I mean full) of all my little embellishments, charms, book rings and lots of bits and pieces all waiting for the right project.
Also on my desk is my journal as I finished a page on Friday. Well I say 'finished' but I'm not fully happy with it, seems a bit too grungy for me - what do you think?
Am lucky enough to have been to Venice twice. The first time we arrived by train and I couldn't believe the view from the station as it opens out directly on to the Grand Canal - what a station approach that is! I bought some cheap acrylics for the background and used my Darkroom Door stamps adding watercolour to the images. Think the reason I'm unsure about it are the 'floating' lampposts - look like spooky angels to me.
Finally a photo of Kitty
This is a scheduled post as I'm off out tonight. Don't get out much (boo hoo) these days but I am going with a friend to see the Strictly Come Dancing Tour at the MEN so it will be a late night for me and a lie-in, and when I do get up I will settle down with a cup of tea and slice of toast to tour the other desks via Julia's fantastic desk-hopping site at Stamping Ground, and now she is doubly famous (having been featured in this month's Craft Stamper magazine) it will probably take me the rest of the day.
