WOYWW, 30th March 2011

This is added on Thursday! I noticed that Kristina Werner is asking about what our messy desks are like, maybe she hasn't heard about WOYWW...I added my link just to show that we all have messy (or tidy) craft spaces!!!!

Good morning Blogettes!

A few days ago Sarah from La-De-Dah used that term (Blogettes) and I find it quite nice, the only thing is it doesn't seem to include men but we seem to have lost the few we had amoung us - or am I wrong?? Anyways how is everybody?? Feeling all spring-y???? We have sunny days and warm weather - well mornings are still cold but the afternoons are lovely! This sort of weather isn't exactly what you want if you are going to be crafting but still I think it gives you some energy! I am ashamed to say that my blogging has gone right down to one post a week and that is WOYWW! But lets hope that this lovely spring weather will get me back on track! I have started with the spring cleaning - I am trying to do one room a day! Huh! 
Ok then more to the point - crafting and desk! I have been doing some cards - I made one for my mom - I visited her over the weekend and gave it to her - I will show it in my next post....I also made a cute card for my nephew (forgot to take a photo of that one doh!!!!!!)....but I am just in the middle of making one for "Less is more" but it isn't finished yet! Also I have a few ideas for the Fruarna Lilja Challenge.....it will all be shown later on this week....At the moment this is my desk.... Swing to the right....

 The usuall mess with my card in the making, two new stamps - a palm tree - yes I am thinking of making my first ever scrapbook layout about my Cuba travel and I definitly need a palm tree for that ( Cuba has 60 sorts of different palm trees) and Hero Arts Wildflower Garden stamp - I just thought I would give that watercolor- spraying technique a go and I think that stamp will be perfect for that....
Then swing to the left.....

mhmmm that side actually looks quite tidy...not! 
And now to the middle.....my card in the making...

and.....something I have been playing with....I like rosettes - I have the TH one and I have made some on my own - this one I made with an MS punch - some of you ladies might have done this but this was my first go .....I punched a long strip with the MS border .....then scored it with the scoring board and made the rosette...it is a bit wonky as it is my first one and I used a paper that was too thin - it shouldn't be too thick either but still I think the result is quite nice - I will try it with other punches - the pattern must be one that makes a nice border around the rosette.....

So there for once I have shown you a technique - not that I think it is my original idea but maybe you haven't tried it yet and might give it a go!
This is all I have for you nosey people today! I hope you enjoy the snooping and be sure that I will come round to at least some of you....I try to get to a few new people every week but I must be honest I never make it to all of the desks...
Have a lovely day!
Lots of hugs

  8. Hello again from my pink room to your pink room. Those rosettes are beautiful. I will probably have to invest in that border punch now. This craft hobby is costing me an arm and a leg!!

  11. the rosette is amazing - really pretty, and I like the idea of the Cuba Lay Out with stamped palms,

    at the moment i am so busy I am struggling to post let alone follow - so for me it would help if we all did a weekly blog for a while!!!!

  16. Maybe they could be called blogdudes?!!

    I spotted that Kristina was doing a desk sharing thing too, perhaps we should send her to Julia!

    What a great idea to use an edge punch before making a rosette, aren't you clever :-)

  17. Great mess, looks like a happy place to create. Thanks for sharing.

  18. Looks like a great place to create, cozy. Thanks for sharing.

  19. Oooh love the border punch you used to edge the rosette, it looks fabulous. Hmmm, may need to go shopping... sorry I am late... life got in the way!! Annette

  20. Genius! I've made huge rosettes with Martha's edge punches, but not little ones. I have to do it. Have to, have to, have to!

    Thanks for the inspiration.
