 Oh dear! My desk this week may look as though nothing has happened since last week. I'm here to join in with visiting other crafter's desks, courtesy of our lovely host - Julia of The Stamping Ground blog

The dies are still there waiting to be put back on their magnetic sheets, there's still a sliding pile of bits and pieces that do sometimes actually slide onto things I am using. Some new additions - inks - a present from hubby(that he will get to use too!)A little pile of new washi tapes and a couple of leatherbound travel notebooks that I bought at a local Makers Market and a journal page. My desk would have been clear if I hadn't just taken a photograph  and put it there so I could pile some used stamps from my making session of Crafty Individuals samples. Now they are done I really am going to have a BIG tidy!

The journal page?

Lots of scraps and some mini collages torn from some envelopes I decorated ages ago!It's for Art Journal Journey and Matilde's 'Birds' theme.

School holidays next week so may be out with Grandchildren, but I'm definitely back!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi Chris, I've been busy since Wednesday and not had chance to pop back but I'm here now and loving the journal page. Hope you've got plenty planned for next week to keep everybody busy. I saw your comment over at mine. This one isn't Whisby though it's not too far from us this is Boultham Park which is just walking distance from us, we are so lucky to have it so close. Hope your weekend has been a good one. Hugs, Angela x14x
