I do keep meaning to post more than my desk for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday but I still haven't properly recovered from the last few months and got back into a routine yet. I did spend Saturday crafting in a good cause though at a 12 hour charity crop for Naomi House children's hospice and you can see one of the layouts I made after my desk shot.
And here it is...
Anyhoo, its done now and will be up on the blog soon but it needs to dry and be photographed - which in itself is a conundrum with this incessant weather. I usually take my pictures outside in the day time but I just haven't been home when it hasn't been raining!
There is an empty pint glass there but it wasn't full of beer - I take a soluble vitamin thingy every day mixed with another medicine that I have to take and together they taste quite nice and get me to drink more water so its a win win - except that it makes my wee fluorescent yellow which can be quite alarming the first time you notice ;-)
At the back of the table are two boxes of embellishments that I have recently been travelling with. The Jo Malone candle box hasn't been unpacked since the retreat a fortnight ago and the clear box is everything I've been using on my Devon album. If I don't have time or energy to gather together stuff for other layouts, I grab that box, my bag of papers and my album and I'm good to go. It already has all the page protectors in with the photos appropriately spaced so I can pick it up and put it down and return to it as and when.
This was one of the 5 or so layouts that I completed on Saturday.
American Crafts and come in various sizes so much easier to play with in short bursts than a regular 12x12.
Gosh it feels like a long time since we first visited Featherdown Farm's Aller Farm and therefore a long time since I started this album. I think I've broken the back of it now though... if I could just resist trying to use EVERY SINGLE picture of a cow then I would have finished by now...
Right, I'm off for another session at the gym and then I can come back and relax and peruse the other desks knowing I have done a good thing for myself - it really really helps my depression (more on that in another post). If I can still use my arms afterwards I might even leave a comment or two so please do stick the kettle on ;-)
Bye for now
