The days are just whizzing past, I can’t believe it is Wednesday again! If it’s Wednesday, it must be time for What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, our weekly hop around the desks hosted by the lovely Julia.
So what have I been up to this week? Well, the rolled flowers that I was making during my scrappy video call went… okay. Much trickier than the Youtube videos made it look I can tell you! But as expected, I did run out of glue. Glue guns are able to take one of two sizes of glue stick. Mine takes the large ones and I have eleventy billion skinny ones. It was cheaper to buy another glue gun, so everything paused while I waited for it to arrive. The other one will be donated to the local scout group, who, I know, have the right size of glue stick.
The other disaster that befell me was that I couldn’t find my lovely sprig of leaves die – I imagine it has run away in someone else’s crop bag somewhere. I didn’t have anything else suitable, I don’t have any leaves at all, so I purchased a set. More waiting. This is me trying them here – they are awful. Apparently the thinner plate for the Cuttlebug has also left home so I was having to use the Diamond instead – that’s how small they are, which is probably my fault for not checking. Also they are not cutting through well at all and this was very thin paper, not even scrapbook paper, let alone cardstock. Sigh. I will get this project finished – I’ve had to swap it over with another article (to be released on Sunday on The Artistry!)
What else can you see here? The green woodgrain, and brown underneath it, are for another project for the same article which also involves the little bird on the bottom left. Top right we have the new classes that have just been released for the Go Go Getaway March retreat which obviously can’t take place in person. Boo!! This is the second one I’ve personally missed now but this time we are still getting a kit and classes. Huzzah! Just FYI, this definitely doesn’t count as breaking my stash diet. Nor do the supplies I needed for my article. So there.
Last week’s throwback Thursday was from 2013. I was taking part in Shimelle’s Return to the Collection – a fabulous class indeed, and I was using Echo Park’s For The Record to document some holiday pics from Greece (edited to add – this was on Nyssiros), including this one about standing in the bottom of a volcano. I still love the placement but I probably wouldn’t use the curly glittery bit now!
So go on, grab a cuppa, have a little journey around the desks and if you link up, we’ll head over and see you too.
Stay safe and keep smiling x
