ON ONE'S DESK TODAY ....


Nice sunny desk this morning - I am so happy to be back in my window, and no longer huddling in the middle of the room for warmth! It's even quite messy on there ... for me anyway! As you can see I'm in scrapbook mode, working on the layout for March, part of Shimelle's Document 2010 project. Because I seem to lead a pretty quiet life, I'm just doing a double layout for each month.

What's on the desk, apart from the project, are the delicious new Hero Arts flower stamps I bought at the NEC. They're clear but give a good crisp image, and are fabulous for layering and cutting out. At the back you can see the ATC shrine, now painted blue, but still a work in progress. The pink binders house my clear stamps, divided into ATC or scrapbook, the larger ones holder bigger sets, collage sheets and the catalogue of my stamps - which sounds posh but I just stamp a copy of every new stamp I buy. You can also see a new punch which produces a bird, wing and branch which I'm hoping to incorporate somewhere ...

So, as you can see, I'm working in Spring greens and yellow and I'm recording stuff like my Mothering Sunday bouquet, spring flowers in the garden, going to TWO shows in March and so on. I don't seem to be very good at keeping bits of memorabilia, receipts etc, so this was the best I could manage for a month which has been pretty busy one way or another. It does the job of creating a snapshot .... and if you want to see more desks get on over to Julia's place.
