Waders at Sunset and WOYWW

I'm even giving my 'art' names now!
This is the finished 6x4 version of the mini canvas. I'm having fun with these so no doubt I will bore you with more.

My desk looks like this.
That's not unusual but I am declaring this the official before photo. A tidy is coming ( not a total tidy you understand, it wouldn't be my desk if it was totally tidy). I'm clearing out old stash and making the things I use more accessible, sounds simple eh?

My current project is this.
It's a box that I bought a small purse in at the weekend, it will be converted to something else by next WOYWW. I've already made a tag with the hanger part here.

Hop off to Julia's if you want to see some more workspaces in her weekly event for the crafting curious (nosey).

Gorgeous busy creative desk there - love your creations, Happy WOYWW! Thank you for visiting my blog and your wonderful comments, the ribbon has a fabric look to it and I have found it rather flat with no ribbon life. But I have used it as it coordinates. I have had fun though.

Sarpreet said...

also thank you for the comments on my card - yours are gorgeous too - i appreciate it when they come from another crafter

Rica said...

This is a very familiar scene Kate, everything out so I can re-organise things more efficiently, it's very strange, more seems to come out than will ever go back. I think storage space shrinks when emptied out.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with the small box.
hugs Heather xx

Handmade with Love said...

Kate, so wierd you should mention a button phobia, my best friend had the same phobia, couldn't wear clothes with buttons or come any where near them, she has over come it and this weekend managed to put her hand in an entire jar of buttons and not worry at all! Tracey x

Love the waders, my mum, who loves any kind of birds, would love it to, thanks for making me think of her ;-)

Julia Dunnit said...

Well Kate, I think we can see your desk properly for the first time in ages, so I figure you've cleared and tidied! Dunno where you find time and oh boy, fancy publicly committing to finishing something by next WOYWW!! Impressive!

Angie said...

That canvas is so perfect ,,,it just says it all ...well to me its gulls on the sand and I LOVE it.

FlipSyde said...

I love the canvas. It is Just Enough. I think that we are bombarded by overdones (I OverDo. Lots.)

Haha, on the 'before' picture...I am always disgusted with my desk after my WOYWW picture and generally spend the end of the week plowing through it...so this I understand well. :)

I know how late I am this week, but I was glad I made it by to see your mess, er, desk before the tidy up. I loved the canvas you created too, and you can bore me with more any day. I also like your recycling efforts with tag and hanger. Happy belated WOYWW.
