Is it really Wednesday again? Oh! OK, so it is time to show my desk, some weeks certainly do go faster than others and I see from quite a few folk around Christmas is on it's way!!! Here we all are - I was going to say Julia's extended family, but I don't want to scare her off - she's been ill you know! Julia, the guide to the desk around the world, how else would we get to meet up? Details are on her blog here.
What's on mine? A few things that need doing - 
Some stamps that I can finally mount now I've bought the mounting sheet, some paper and card to go through the process of die cutting and an experiment with different glues following a fab idea I saw from Darcy on the Paper Artsy blog.
If you have time take a look - it's fascinating!
Now, if you are of a nervous disposition look away now….
to the left
I really have no idea how everything got in this state… next job I think! I really can't cram anymore in there!! 
Oh! and that is a Christmas card you see bottom right - shop bought but has an interesting middle so I'm going to take it apart and see if I can make my own bigger version…..

Off to see 'Hercules' with hubby and grandson so I'll probably get around later!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Ooh have a nice time with Hercules! Your box of stamps looks like my box of scrap papers, but I prolly won't get to it any time soon! The ideas with the glue look fascinating..that Darcy is so clever. and where would we be without waxed paper?!!

LOL! I just ordered a grab bag (or two) of unmounted stamps so I guess I'd better source some mounting foam as well. Interesting glue experiments...I'll have to follow up and have a look at the inspiration post. I'm intrigued...

Happy WOYWW!

Love the teapot & teacup stamps in the top pic. Your colorful experiment with glue makes me think of old marbled book end papers.

Happy Woyww,

What would the faint of heart be doing wandering around looking at crafters' desks anyway?!!! Personally I think that's the best shot of them all, although the glue does have me curious. Judy #76

Christine said...

wphaar! Hercules! I loved him when he was The Rock on American Wrestling - he's come a long way since then .....
Being as how most people are mentioning the 'C' word I suppose I had better give in and make a start!!!

Neet said...

That's a busy corner you are showing us Chris. You have me intrigued on the technique so I am off to have a looky.
Hugs, Neet xx
