What's on My Workdesk Wednesday No250? Tim Holtz and Finnabair!

Well dear Desker, the truth is that I did ask Tim to pose on my desk for a WOYWW photo, but alas he declined!  At least I can say that I asked!  So instead I have lots of his products, a HUGE cup and saucer that I bought especially for my desk (inspired by Nikki Davey's post here) and a canvas that I am busy with in Finn style.

Ali H from the Craft Cauldron wont be posting her desk today because she is in my neck of the world...She came for a play date on Sunday and taught me Finn techniques and brought me the best gift EVER!  Two pots of Silks paints and some trinkets to put on a canvas.  We played for 2,5 hours (not long enough, I need to move in next door to this lady!) and this is what we made.


 Here is the very special ATC Ali made me, I forgot to give her the one I made to swap, so will have to post it.  There was so much I wanted to show her, but alas, time was against us.
thanks to all who commented last week on my desk...somehow I managed to delete the post while trying to do something else...so if you went looking for it after Wednesday and it was not there...That's why...technochallenged moment!

  1. NOW I know why I couldn't find last week's blog post, since I didn't even get to you till late Sunday night. Glad you explained why I hunted and hunted for it.

    Sorry Tim was a pooper when it came to posing on your desk. But I LOVE that coffee/tea cup. What gorgeous colors and design. And to say I love that canvas would be an UNDERSTATEMENT. It is stunning.

    Happy WOYWW from #2, not late this week.

  7. What a fab post - how wonderful for you and Ali both to craft together - love the projects too. I think that really would have hit the WOYWW head lines if you had manage to get Tim to pose on your desk!!!! Have a great week and happy WOYWW to you from Helen 61 x

  21. Oh my goodness both of those canvasses are gorgeous. I just keep going back to look at them. Are those things made of metal and glued on or are they some sort of card embellishment? I'd love to have a go at that sort of canvas work. So wonderful that you have a fellow Woywwer come and visit.
    Have a great week,

  24. Bella, that canvas is absolutely stunning... What a great piece of work. It sounds as if you and your friend had a great time together. Sorry not to be part of WOYWW again this week but I've had a bad week health wise and the only time I could spend in my ARTHaven was trying to get my poor old sewing machine going - without success so it's now in for repair.

    Have a great week,

  26. You made that in such a short time! I am well impressed, it is gorgeous.

    ps love your hair, when did you have it cut, I seem to remember it was very long not that long ago. I do remember photos recently of you with it short but they were only tiny thumbnails so this is the first time I got a good look. Fabulous!
