Wow! is it that time again already?  My how the days fly.

What time am I talking about?  Well, after taking a look at my blog, just head on over to the Stamping Ground blog where the lovely Julia has got us all peeking at each others desks & what is on them.  Not just here in the UK - but all over the crafting world.  Have a good nose.

Well today my desk actually has a card on it that I made for a challenge at the weekend - & some new bits & pieces, plus a piece of silk embroidery that I must have done at least 8 - 10 years ago which has come to light through my moving house.

This is my crafting desk (as opposed to my computer desk - I showed them both last week), & since last week I have been able to unearth my little blue drawer unit with most of my unmounted stamps in & many of my packs of cards.  Also one of my 12x12 boxes with papers, & my stamping mat is in the foot-well.  Foot-well - that's a laugh - I can't get my foot/feet in there at the moment.

Here is a close up of the left-hand side of the desk showing some recent purchases.  At the front are 3 Embossalicious embossing folders from Crafters Companion.  They were featured on C&C in Las Vegas.  Also there are some Die'sire cutting dies which I bought just before I moved.  The embossing folder to the right of the dies was a freebie on Papercraft Essentials magazine this month.  So! lots of new things waiting to be used.

Here is a close up of the right-hand side of my desk with the little ribbon embroidery there in the front, along with my paper cutter & its changeable blades.

Right! that is my desk - why not pop over to the Stamping Ground & see what other crafters have been up to.  Just click on the link above.

Thank you for dropping in I hope you enjoyed your visit.

I know just what you mean about no foot well. Mine was taken by the washing machine for years but now its been moved its taken by boxes of envelopes!!!!

This is, I think, my first visit and I did enjoy it. I am relatively new to crafting so I don't have nearly so much equipment as you..What I would really like is more CC stuff like an envelope maker! My problem is finding somewhere to keep it all. I haven't so very much and I'm already running out of space. I don't know about nowhere to put your feet - my family are rapidly complaining they have nowhere to put theirs now I've taken over a corner of the living room. Julie Ann #12

What a lovely surprise, to come across your silk embroidery. I tend to do that with knitting and then can't work out where I am in the pattern. Enjoyed looking at your desk.
