That teaser yesterday....
Before I begin my WOYWW post today, a big thank you to those of you fabulous regular friends who popped over to Sam's blog yesterday to have a look at my DT card...sorry for 'teasing' you with the sneak peak....looking at your comments on my blog, I think I managed to confuse some of you into thinking I would be revealing the card here, but as with every Tuesday, it was 'over there' all the time! I'd love it if you'd pop over and have a look and here is the link:
This is the chance we get to share our desks with the rest of our lovely craft world, courtesy of Julia over at Stamping Ground...just click for all the deets and why not join in this week?
As some of you know, I am lucky to have two little craft spaces...a spare room in our house, where I do all my paper craft and a little summer house, kitted out for my art parts, paints and all the other 'arty' stuff. I call it the craft barn :). This year we totally 'gutted' it and began to remodel the inside as it had become so 'sad' that I just wasn't using it...I have painted one of the shelf units so far and updated a really tired old desk that I picked up for very little money and quite honestly, especially with the good weather, I have been spending a lot of spare time out there these last few months...
..these are the projects I have been working on....
The box above was a plain MDF pen holder, but it never worked for me using it that way, so I painted it to match my desk and am using it to store my little wooden shapes.
This was an MDF shelf kit I got recently (very easy to put together): I gave it a base coat of the same paint used for the box unit and then decorated it with these Tilda Spring papers - they are from a pad that I loved so much that I didn't want to use (you know what I mean!), so this was a good way of holding on to some of them!
After losing two of our girls this year, I still find it very strange to only have two little hens (or in the case of these, rather large ones!) gracing our garden but goodness are they spoilt!
Thanks so much for stopping by, I so much appreciate it!
Love and Hugs,
