What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday and a Video!

Good morning to you all! 
This is the fun desk hopping otherwise known as WOYWW - don't forget to visit Julia for the complete list of crafty desks.
Talking of desks - here is mine this week....
On my desk is evidence of the wonderful new Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms One die template.  I've been making felt fabric brooches and to show you how I put together this little video.


I'm delighted to be running another workshop at Pickleberry Papercrafts 
on Saturday 10 September 2011.
We will be decorating unique wooden trinket pots using this die template.  The wooden pots are created from reclaimed oak (the one pictured below is pine).  Each one is hand turned on a lathe (by my dear Dad!) they really are beautiful and obviously enhanced by the handmade flowers. 
Wonderful to make as a gift or to treat yourself.  I have mine on my dressing table for all my jewellery.
Also, you get to KEEP the die template!!!  
Take it home and create a whole bunch of flowers, brooches, decorate cards, tags and more!

All the workshop details are here - you might also like to see the details of the Advent Workshop :)
You get tea/coffee and biscuits and I may even venture to bake a cake too! 

I would love you to join me for a few hours of creative floral fun.
Happy Wednesday!
