WOYWW 129 - A Haaandbaarg!!!

Sorry guys - I was trying to say it like in The Importance of Being Ernest!!

Happy .... Hump Day or WOYWW or Wednesday whichever you would like it to be.  Today's the day when a lorra Crafters show off their desks on their blogs and all link in to the Desk Jockey - Julia Dunnit. 

Here's mine......

And here is Supervisor Monkey in the hot seat......

BTW - when Mandy was up at the weekend, she reminded me where I got this lovely stamp from, it was Hobbycraft and it was half price!  Now I know why I really like it!!  If you are lucky you might be able to get one. 

The lickle handbags are little gift bags in the making for my Craft Fairs which are only next week - eeeeeeek!  These I just have to put some velcro spots on the flaps and add a decoration of some sort on to the fronts.  There are little gift tags hanging from each of them, which you cannot see from here.

If you take a look at the last few posts you can see some of the other stuff I have made.  On the left corner of my desk I have some more pillow boxes cut out ready to put together as well as some more of the little square cubes which need to be stamped, acetate windows put in and then assembled.  For the assembling you need at least three if not four hands.  Monkey has tried but he has no working thumbs!!

I am really starting to panic about the Craft Fairs as I do not have many cards ready yet but hopefully by the weekend I will have finished the boxes so I can sit down just to do cards.

Off to work, Dancing and then I will try and catch up with you all later today or in the week.

Whatever you are doing have a lovely Crafting week and keep warm and away from these nasty bugs that are going around.    Don't forget to pop over to Julia's once you have kindly left me a message!

good luck for those craft fairs. I work best under pressure... Yes that giant roll of double sided tape is so useful for so many things! We can order it in any width, if it didn't weigh so much I would offer to send you one in the post...

Di said...

Hellooooo Glitterpuss (snort, snort) - I only have an old pokey tool for glitter work 'cos the glue sort of took the shiney coating of and then it began to rust. Sheesh, I wonder what's in that glue stuff?! Hope the craft fair is a great success - get Monkey to come along, he should earn his keep!! Di xx

Julia Dunnit said...

I know the feeling of panic. I'm still struggling with this flu bug 2 weeks down the line and have advent calenders to make for my grandsons. One needs to be finished tonight to give to my son and still needs the pockets stitching in place. Christmas less than a month away? How did that happen!! hugs Mrs A.
