I really have to think about that acronym and almost say it out loud to myself as I type it out – it isn’t one that naturally rolls off the fingers – not yet anyway! (In any case, if you want to see more creative desks this week – go and visit Stamping Ground - and with apologies to Millie's Marvels whom I linked to earlier - it was the wrong blog - sorry - but Millie's Marvels is a good blog nevertheless!!)

So, my desk this Wednesday isn’t as tidy as it was last Wednesday, but I still say that it’s not that bad!


Those deckled rectangle nesties in the corner are part of a lovely birthday present from my brother and his family – I also had three more nesties from them (cos there’s a great company that sells them for a really good price if you buy four!) The other nesties are the small circle, the accompanying scalloped circles, and the small rectangles to go with the deckled ones – I did feel very lucky indeed!

What isn’t on the desk is the stash that I bought at the NEC last week during the hobbycraft fair – I had a great time wandering about and seeing what the offerings were – I really could have spent a fortune, but managed to restrain myself!! ;-)

But what you CAN see on the desk is the remains of this afternoon’s card making as I played with two new sets of stamps that I have – one Penny Black set from the NEC and one from my cardmaking magazine (that’s the purple thing that says “FREE”!!). I also have a bunch of copics out as I have been playing with those and still getting used to the way they blend.

In case you’re wondering what I made – here they are – you can tell that I am rather taken with a snowflake embossing folder that I have as I managed to use it on all three cards! (even if one of the embossed images is actually inside out cos I hadn’t yet worked out which way to put the card in the folder, but I don’t suppose it actually matters!!)

Ooh, interesting and busy desk, me likee! What do you keep in the red wicker basket then? And I LOVE the deer stamp on the little shelf, who's that by? Did anyone tell you how nosey I am! And made me LOL about leaving your post at Millie's - am sure she won't mind, we'd have found you eventually!!

Hi Sam, Thanks for visiting me, I keep my Promarkers in the labelled drawers! I do need some Round Nesties though - I visited the site you recommended - will need to order some!
