WHAT'S ON MY DESK?


Hecky Thump! (does anybody still say that?) two posts from me in two days?? It's a miracle! It's all Julia's fault, this what's on my workdesk Wednesday thing!! Bit of a strange collection on there today, which nonetheless reflects current preoccupations.

On the left a pile of new Sissix dies which arrived in this morning's post, delivered by a very fed up looking bloke trudging through the new snow which fell last night. The Sissix sale was ACE and I got lots of goodies at bargain prices. Then there's the snow photos I can't decide whether to make into a layout or a mini book, and on top of them a sweet little package of stamps I bought in another sale.

But on the very top is the blooming book I've been looking for for about 3 days! I turned the house upside down searching for it, only to find it on the shelf above my desk! How was I to know that, since I last used it, the cover had changed from the white with red writing I was looking for to this ....? I have already read it, but now that the master novel is FINISHED (woop woop) I have to go back and read the chapter about submitting a synopsis and sample chapters. Oh my, this is scary stuff, but then I was looking at the dross on offer on Tesco's bookshelves earlier, and thought "if they can publish this stuff, its worth a go"! Positive attitude eh??

Oh Rosie - you go girl, a book! Impressive. I've noticed that - books and CD spines, they change appearance overnight. Weird. LOVE your snow pics in black and white..so dramatic. Well good luck with deciding, ain't gonna help - can't choose for myself!
