Less is more, but more is better

That's the motto of one of the challenges I follow, but could definitely be applied to my love of Magnolia's. I decided to tidy the stamping and inking corner after last week's WOYWW and found this envelope stuffed with stamps, most of which I haven't tried yet.
This is the tidied corner.
The 'slightly not right' butterfly has had some musical notes added but I'm still not sure where he is headed. My water soluble pens are on the right in the colourful tin. They're starting to run out so I might have to invest in some Aquamarkers.

Here is the work in progress.
Something strange and macabre is going to happen to those sweet little trick or treat bags, just wait and see! I also have a spare copy of that stamp to give away in a Halloween mini candy. Details to follow at the end of the week.

On the home front, we have a new computer mouse. You can't imagine the difference it makes when you move the mouse and the cursor follows you on the screen!

Almost forgot, hop over here to Julia's and there are plenty more desks to look at.

always amazing what you find when you tidy up. Its always a must have when we buy it but if it doesn't get used immediately it might be a while before we find it again! Not posted a desk this week at all but wanted to nosey at other WOYWWers.

Macabre eh? How exciting and scarey!! The butterfly looks more interesting with an image on it - the whole evolving thing is an interesting project to watch! Oh and that purple thing...nothing more exciting than a bottle of glue....I do not of course, have a clue why you should hesitate to ask!!!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

that is one lovely butterfly. I was surprised when I opened my drawers this week how much I had forgotten, too. It's always a good thing to do a bit of cleaning and tidying. Happy WOYWW from #1.

Finding stamps you love and have forgotten is better than finding money : D. Looking forward to seeing what happens to the treat bags. TFS!
