What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 118


Hello there and welcome to a few new faces on my followers list, always lovely to make new friends.

Being Wednesday again, it is desk hop day! (feeling a bit like the guy in the Ground Hog movie where he wakes up and does the same thing each day as I am sure it was Wednesday just yesterday! where does the time go?)

For those of you who might remember, my car's clutch broke last week just before I sat down to do this post and I have been without my car for 7 days so far. Friends and family have been fantastic, helping out with lifts, kids and cars etc. Hopefully it will be back today, but my entire years budget for crafting and then some is about to be blown on the repair!

My desk has been a hive of activity as I am getting those canvasses done for samples. Being stranded at home does help this project as it means I can't go anywhere or get too distracted elsewhere... so far I have finished 3 of the 6 canvasses and done the base product for the other 3. All of them still need their sides painted black. I also had to make 6 tags for display and those are made, (well I got carried away and made 12 over the week-end so the next batch is also made...) they just need to have their instructions typed up. That is the not so creative part and the bit I tend to drag my feet on...rather make more tags....


Yesterday, my friend dropped off some Ranger products I did not have in my stash for me to try out, test and play with. For those of you who know my addiction to all things Tim, even I was surprised to find there were some things missing in my arsenal! Can you believe I don't own an Airondack ink pad? How have I survived? Well with Distress inks and Archival I guess...

Enough rambling on by me, it is time to go check out all the other desks put up for scrutiny at Julia's place called Stamping Ground where she is the gracious hostess of What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!

See you soon and thanks for all your comments and well wishes last week on my car, I really appreciated having your support.

  12. Those canvases are gorgeous Bella. I have loads of canvases and was looking for some inspiration and now you have triggered the ideas! Thanks.
    What is it with cars this week? My alarm played up the other day and virtually made me deaf while I stuck my head in the engine trying to find a key hole just over 1/4"!! The very nice man from the AA rescued me!

  13. Love the tags and canvases - looks like being stranded can actually be quite good fun! Beware adirondacks are just as addictive as archival and distress inks and come in fantastic colours!

  15. Hi there Bella am sorry to hear of the continuing saga of the car and pray it does not break the bank!! sigh! and yes you have been having fun playing. I LOVE Adirondack ink pads, they the very best for brayering, blend so beautfully, and would have heaps more if only could justify it... Happy WOYWW, Shaz in oz.x

  16. Hi there, bit of flying visit from me today but just wanted to pop in and say Hi. Thanks for sharing your little corner of the world with us this week. Hope your creative journey this week is a good one! Lovely tags there. I hope your car is cheaper than you expect, t'would be a terrible pity not to buy more crafty bits!

  17. Your tags are just lovely! Each is so different from the next but just as stunning! I have quite a few "Tim" things too, he does have awesome stuff. Good luck with your car it's so unfortunate that most work done on cars today (and everyday)is sooooo expensive. Have a great day!

  20. Wow! Love your canvases, very eyecatching, and the tags are pretty gorgeous too. So sorry to hear about the bill for the car repair - what, no pennies left for crafting goodies - that's serious deprivation!!! Hope your weekend, at least, is a good one. Elizabeth x #50
