What's On My Workdesk Wednesday 289? Valentines tag

Hello fellow Desker from Julia's place.  Welcome to my desk over in Cape Town, South Africa!
This is actually as my desk looked on Sunday morning after I was inspired to make Tim's Tag for Feb, late on Saturday night.  The chaos you see is now all gone and you can once again see my floor and desk...which is boring, so I am showing you a more realistic view of what goes on most of the time.
My accounts are done and handed in!  YAY!  So the yellow file on the floor is GONE now.  The yellow box on top of the file is from new molding putty I had played with all day Saturday...not so sure about the putty.  I prefer the results from the silicone molding stuff, though it takes 16 hours to set!

February Tag of Tim's 12 Tags of 2015

Well, I was trawling blogs tonight and saw Redanne's Tag and was inspired to go to my desk and get cracking!  I have not done January's tag yet, but seeing as today is Valentines day and Tim's tag is full of hearts...I decided to just go for it!
12 Tags of 2015 - February |
I did not however have the energy to set up my sewing machine, so my trusty stapler came to the rescue along with a hat pin!
Below you can see the nice splatter I got from my that tool. 
Happy Valentines Day!

This tag is from me to me, by me for me!LOL!

What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 297? Accounts

Hello fellow Desker from Julia's place.

Here you see a rather large file full of my annual accounts.  It is financial year end for me at the end of Feb.  Yuck.

Not much crafting going on other than to test the Soft Matte gel by Finnabair.  I used it to glue some fabric onto a little decoupage box.  It worked a real treat.

You can also see some keys (at the back in white) I molded on the week end and the copper spray paint I plan on using on the blue ended "DIY straw" for a future project.

This post should be called "testing, testing, 123!"  cos I am testing products as well as concepts and the accounts are testing my patience!

What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 296? Sewing Machine!

Health Warning!  For those of you who know me well, be warned...there is a sewing machine on my desk!
As a RULE...I don't sew.

UNLESS there is an emergency.

The repair pile is hitting emergency status.  I had to sew a new (industrial) zip onto my son's Golf bag cover.  They supply a piddly thing and of course after no time at all it had derailed.  That was last nights job.  Still on my desk are his school shorts and some of my tops that need altering for various reasons.

They might or might not get done.  The golf bag was URGENT as he has a tournament on Sunday.

The rest...we will see.

There is a pile of cut sticky backed foil vying for my attention...I think it might win me over for a while!  I need to get my steampunk on, then I might have the energy to tackle the rest of the sewing pile...time will tell.

Yes that is a roll of sticky backed foil which I found in a local craft shop.  It keeps me out of mischief!
For those of you who saw my clock on the go last week, here is a link to the tutorial of how I made it.
