What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 275? Configurations box

Hello Fellow Desker.  I am late to the party today cos it is a holiday here in South Africa and I have had a lie in!

On my desk you can see the black sheet of paper that I sometimes use as a backdrop for shooting photos for my blog and the configurations box (how I made it is here)  I made as an entry to the CC3 challenge on Linda's Blog.

You can see my keys and phone right where I left them when I came in last night from teaching my evening class...

Time to tidy away and get crafting for the rest of the day!


  1. How interesting that you use a black backdrop for shooting your objects against..I've always tended to stick to the white but will definitely have a go at this.
    Hope you had a fab lie're such a hard worker, you deserve it :-)
    Hugs, LLJ 34 xx

  2. I like the backdrop card, Belinda. Makes the item really stand out well.
    Trust you really enjoyed the lie-in. Good for you!
    Take care. God bless.

  3. Love the backdrop idea- I usually use a small easel with some black glitter card on it, but may have to have a try at this. Hope you enjoyed your Holiday! Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #25 xxx

  4. My backdrop tends to be any fabric that is hanging around - ie blue shirt that is a coverall, bedsheets, towels... get the picture? No pun intended there ouch!
    I am longing to see your config box in detail - bet it is superb.
    Hugs & thanks for visiting me - Neet 16 xx

  5. Great idea to do the back drop in black.
    The box is gorgeous. I couldn't really see it very clearly but I'm sure it will appear on your blog in a bigger picture.
    And I'm looking at other things on your desk too. Like loads of stamps.
    Thank you for letting peep over your shoulder.

  6. I think this is the first black backdrop I've seen in a LONG time! Interesting how it sets off the project. And your box is fabulous! Enjoy your holiday! Happy WOYWW!

  7. What a super project there. And very interesting that you have a black backdrop for photosw. Thanks for sharing. Hope you are having a great day and have a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #69 x

  8. What a great box and the back drop really shows it off. Funny we did table top backdrops and correct lighting in camera club on Monday. Have a happy week

  9. I like black as a backdrop too, though often use anything that's plain and handy!! I still have a config box bought years ago, waiting to be "done"!! one day, one day... Helen 4

  10. Your awesome projects look very nice on black.
    Thank you for visiting and leaving a nice comment. I am pretty sure, next week I will have to show some stamp work :-)

  11. Fab box - glad you got to chill out on your holiday day off ! You have me intrigued with the thought of a box now ! Hugs Ali

  12. What an amazing box, and the background really makes it stand out. Happy WOYWW, Chris # 14

  13. I am sure you are enjoying your short holiday. Love the box, great details.
    Hope you have a great week and happy crafting, Angela x 36

  14. That's the first time I've seen a black background for photos but it makes your box really stand out. That box is awesome, so much in there. I had a look at the making and there is no way I would have the patience to do that. You are so creative to think up all those things.
    Have a great week,

  15. Hi Bella that's a clever idea with the back drop I have tried it ... Unsuccessfully a few times but yours looks great .... So does the box

  16. Hi Bella,

    Thanks for the wide angle shot showing us how you take photos for your blog. I hadn't thought of using black as a backdrop but it definitely works very well. I love the shadowbox!!!

    Happy belated WOYWW,
