What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

 Oh dear - what a muddle! 
This is my desk after arriving home from a fantastic weekend away and just dumping everything.
 I will get round to sorting things but it seems a big task right now!
Just in case you're new to this workdesk craze, click on the WOYWW logo on my sidebar.
On the subject of my weekend away, my two lovely friends made me these....
A unique and special cake stand and a pretty gift bag with lots of lovely travel goodies which will be perfect for my trip to Arizona next month... have I mentioned that..oh yes probably about a zillion times!
On the crafting front I've done quite a lot which will all be revealed soon so it would be lovely if
you could come back and visit.
And glad it is officially Spring!

Scrap Our Stash - February Challenge - 'Dust if Off'

The challenge for Scrap Our Stash this month is to find something at home that we've neglected, dust it off and use it. 
So I rummaged in my cupboards and found this wooden box that I purchased about 2 years ago! 
So it was indeed time for a little box makeover.

I am really pleased with the finished result.
Visit Scrap Our Stash every day to see more ideas.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday!

 Happy Wednesday everyone!
'Spot the Cat' this week is Darcy sitting on a very nice piece of cream cardstock!
Once she was evicted I started on a project for National Scrapbooking Day -
I shall be posting more details about this soon.
An empty wine glass visible there too - how dreadful!
(the fact that it's empty not that it's there!)

My BIG news is that I'm on the Spellbinders Design Team!

I am still in a bit of a daze but really thrilled and slightly hyperventilating at the
proposed trip to Arizona!  
Have a great week everyone.
