I had such a lovely time popping around to all the desks for last week’s What’s On Your Workdesk Wednesday and everyone was so welcoming after my time away. It was good to know that it wasn’t just me who found comfort in the regularity of our weekly snoop! If you want to know more, head over to see Julia at The Stamping Ground. Here’s my desk this week.
I’m supposed to be writing and editing photos (the Eeek! layout on the stand is next up on the blog) but I missed out a step of the process and so I need to go back and do it – on 60 photos. I was so cross with myself that I pushed the computer away in a huff and decided to do some crafting instead. I thought I’d join in with the Scrap The Boys challenge blog this month which will be a first for me – you can see the inspiration on the lap top screen behind. In the spirit of my One Little Word (ACTION) I grabbed the first suitable photos I came across and the first suitable bag of stash and set to work. The bag was actually the very remnants of a kit left over from a Go Go retreat and not really my style (even though I love the layouts I made that weekend), but they are perfect for these silly pictures of my Dad pretending to be starved and uncared for at the end of the first lockdown. I had a couple of big pieces of paper, one full sheet and lots of little die-cuts so the layout sort of controlled itself and became a lot less square than the sketch intended. The scissors that you can see are my scuffing scissors – please don’t judge me, I didn’t realise my old naff ones were in the picture. I have lots of much fancier ones in real life.
Last week I mentioned foam squares and my version of those irritating little blighters so I thought I’d let you see the back of the photos for this layout. Please try not to twitch. I’d love to tell you that they are all the same thickness too but no, they all get slapped on willy-nilly and it all balances itself out in the end…
Finally I thought I would start sharing the previous week’s Instagram #ThrowbackThursday so you actually get to see a finished item on a Wednesday. It probably appeared on my old blog at some point because I think it’s from 2014. I’m just about managing to keep up with sharing on the days I intended but then it has only been about 10 days!
So what have you been up to over the past week? We’d love to see. Or just grab a cuppa and have a nosy around the desks with me.
Stay safe and keep smiling xx
