Another WOYWW

…and this time I am actually making something – much to my surprise!  I am very very overdue with regards a couple of pay-it-forwards due to my agonising over what to make and so I thought that I had better get on with it…..Hayley is sure to recognise this particular project!

I am making  a notecard set complete with matching folder and I hope that my recipients will enjoy it!

The soap in the middle of the desk is not in case of ink spillage emergencies, but it is left over from the girls weekend just gone as I gave each of my visitors a bar of this soap, but made it special by using crafty bits to cover it up (again – a la Hayley!! Thanks Hayley – your craft sessions are really paying off!!)  This is what the soap bars looked like….

Anyhoo, don’t forget to go and visit the other desks – you know the ones – the ones that are rather more productive than mine!!

I love how you've covered those soaps. What a lovely gift idea.
And your desk, as WOYWW desks go, is looking very tidy ;)

Lovely gift idea Sam. It makes it so much more that a bar of soap... The WiP on your desk looks interesting, will you be posting the finished project?

Hey Girlie
What on earth are you making there, I can't figure it out! Please post when you're done, I'd love to see what it is! Great soap cover, turns on ordinary little bar of soap into something quite extraordinary.

What a lovely idea for giving a bar of soap, so pretty. You appear to be a tidy person having just perused your blog and seen your desk etc.
The box on my desk was given to me by a friend, when she got it it had soaps in each compartment.

It was an angel. I packed all the other ones I altered away after Christmas but kept the one out of my Mum :)

Hiya :) I have just read your comment on my WOYWW...the black thing with the brush handle is a Melt Pot with a brush sticking out of it cos I was melting Beeswax and the brush gets all stiff (oooer) when the wax hardens....HTH!!

How on earth do you cope with all that space?

Love the little holders.

Hi Sam, The little boxes for the sopa are lovely, great idea :) I know what you mean about agonising over what to make for something like that - I've joined a n internet swap for the first time and haveing the same agonies. As for the tablecloth, it's got about 12 cats on (remember exactly and next door at DDs just now so can't count them) all with different patterns. Not sure if it was intended as a tablecoth, my son bought it for me some years ago when he ived in the USA and I love it.

Hi Sam!!! Thanx for visiting my blog & your comment,much appreciated.
Your notelet set looks good & fab idea for the soap covers too.
The white sloping thing on my desk is from Ikea,it is good for working on,colouring etc & storing stuff.It has a really useful lip on the btm too,so i leave stuff to dry on it,without them sliding off.
