Good morning, my friends. Firstly, let me say a huge thanks for all your comments last week. They were so lovely to read. You know, when John was so ill last year, and I hardly left the house, you were my window on the world – you regularly “came into my home” with your posts, your visits to my blog, and your comments. It was so lovely – thanks!
So, secondly, the reason we are all here, my desk. It has actually seen some activity other than dumping!! I’ve been busy making some samples of the sort of cards I make for a local hotel. They may want to sell some of my work… so…
Ta-da. My desk this morning – taken yesterday afternoon. A shot of a rather small section. Can’t show you the rest ‘cos it’s full of cards – but here’s a little glimpse on my waste paper.
So, acrylic stamping block, scissors, blade, bone folder, pointy tool, cotton buds, inks, glue, pile of paper for acting as a slight softener when stamping, the necessary spectacles, mobile phone. So from that you may deduce I have been stamping, some practice and some second generation. I have been inking up backgrounds looking at the shape of the card on that pad. The pokey tool suggests die-cutting. The blade and scissors, cutting out. You have deduced correctly!!
So that’s it, folks. Nothing terribly riveting, I’m afraid. I have also done a couple of jigsaws, and am still knitting a jumper for a baby. I have a living room covered in dust and dust sheets, as I have workmen in taking out a fireplace. They should finish today and then I shall need to wipe all the surfaces ready for visitors this evening.
I’ll get around to visiting – but it may not all happen today.
Take care, my friends. God bless.
