WOYWW, Easter chick!

Good morning my dear friends!

Are you all ok? Having nice weather and enjoying the spring that has just sprung???? Well I am - we finally got a little bit of rain so the grass and flowers can finally move to spring mode! 
So first a bit of spring for you - I work at the forestry faculty and we have a huge garden around our building with lots of different trees ( for the students to learn to recognise them) and this photo was taken about 10 m away from my library.....love the purple color of the crocuses....

and a primerose peaking out.....

So there that is a bit of spring for you but now lets get up to more serious business - snooping around desks with our Queen Julia in command.......
This week my craft room is in a big mess....I keep on changing from one project to another, I made a card for my brother who's name day was on Monday ( St . Joseph) - didn't take a picture, then I made a lovely vintage thank you card for my physiotherapist as it was my last session yesterday - again forgot to take a photo - that is age for you but here it is my really messy desk.....

In the middle you can see I am making a sandwich board card - Jo from Jozart gave me instructions how to do it over Skype but I haven' t finished it yet ! The base is done....here is a close up.....

Now comes the die cutting bit which I am worried about but we will see how it goes.....I will show the card when it is finished....
Next up is my other project I am at - the Easter chick....I decided to make some cute felt chicks for my daughter, mom, my brothers family and some other people who are dear to me - put it in the envelope with the Easter card....it is quite a lot of work but I really like to make them....here is one for show.....one side...

and the other side.....

Here is one in the making...... it involves a lot of hand sewing of all these beads but I also use the glue gun and glitter glue....just a bit of a play....

I will show more of them as I make them....
And the last picture is the rest of my messy craftroom....I was looking for bits and pieces got out loads of boxes of stuff - then something fell off the shelve and you cand see what the result was - I just said "Sod it" and left the mess there for you to see....huh.....

So there I am done showing my mess....have you shown yours??? If you haven't you still have all day to join in the biggest showing of desks at our HQ!
Have a lovely day!
Lots of hugs to all of you,

  13. Hi Cardarian...it's been a while since I visited your blog. What beautiful creations - both the crocuses and the Easter chicks. *Ü* Thanks for the snoop on your desk. ~Glen~

  14. Love the chicks....good idea for my grandaughters! I'll "borrow" your idea if you don't mind!

  15. hi there
    Sometimes you just have to leave the mess dont you? and get on with the making.
    your birds are really cut, love the feathers

  16. Those felt Easter chicks are simply too cute for words!! LOVE them, hard work paid off! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)

  17. Wow..lots of loveliness I guess we can't craft if we don't have stuff all over..time just isn't always available to be SO organized. I just want time to create.."Life" just way to busy right now. Have a great day. Love the beautiful colors of all the flowers. Happy WOYWW

  18. At first I was having a terrible time leaving comments on blogs last night. They didn't want to post. NOW I get "service unavailable when I try to leave a comment. It's really frustrating. I see others having trouble with MY link, too.

    On a lighter note, I love the chick and I saw a card like that on Jo's blog last week. Hope you have time to work on an AB. There's still plenty of time. Happy WOYWW from # 7.

  19. Love the spring flowers. I also love pictures of 'messy' craft rooms! I bet you know exactly where everything is even though it's messy :)

  20. Sorry I am so late in posting but I had one or two computer bloopers to sort out yesterday.
    Love the beginning of the card you have done with Jo - I got one from her for my birthday.
    Loads of lovely things on here including your busy desk but the scene stealer for me are the crocus and the primroses. I love spring flowers.
    Hugs, and thanks for commenting on my blog.

  22. Oh but your sofa looks very exciting, and I totally get the 'sod it' thing, happens here - alot! How nice your easter gifts are, and my, how you make me realise it's very soon! Hope your physio sessions have really helped.

  23. You are lucky working in such a lovely place! I love that Easter Chick - she's a bit of a fabulous diva, darling. The feathers are completely frivolous and I love em!
