WOYWW and a hint of steampunk

It's Wednesday, so time for another peak at the world's workdesks. Pop over to Julia's to see lots of other desks in action.

A couple of weeks ago I blogged my new shelves that were not in position yet but had already started filling up. Well, you know what I'm like, the word tidy is never going to be associated with me. My work area has spread to the top of the shelves (which is supposed to be the eventual home for my die-cutter).
The After Eights are not full, unfortunately, the whole family collected wrappers for me for projects (inspired by Kirsty Wiseman) and I still have lots left to play with.

The acrylic 'JOY' letters on the left were in the Paperchase sale for £1 so I got a couple of sets. I've put one by for a Christmas creation and these ones will one day be a new baby gift.

I've been playing steampunk again, this time for the Daring Cardmakers.
The steampunk element comes from Prima Botanical stamps. The scalloped border is Girls Paperie.
The flower in the bottom corner is a Kaiser stamp.
Challenges:
Daring Cardmakers - Steampunk
Creative Cottage #33 - Fabulous florals
