WOYWW Jan 12/11

Hello fellow WOYWWers!  And if you are not a fellow WOYWWer but would like to be, pop on over to The Stamping Ground and join up! And then you too can post a picture of your Workdesk on Wednesdays and show What's On Yours.  Or just pop over and have a look through all the other desks of the fabulously talented bloggers!
So, what is on my desk this Wednesday?  I am still playing my way through the Tim Holtz  Compendium of Curiousities book and making tags, tags and more tags.  The two on my craft sheet, I had just finished before taking the picture and they were so much fun! I just love making the Grunge Flowers! Love them! And here is a close up of those tags.
  I think I will put Grunge Flowers on everything I make from now on, ha ha.  Not really, but there is something very satisfying about making them.
I am almost at the end of the tags I can make from the book (unless I get the supplies I am missing, hmmm, might have to shop, lol) and then I really should get onto making some birthday cards.
I hope I will be able to visit more WOYWWers desks this week and I will try my very best!

Looking very creative here Karen, I have spotted a few items I would love but am on a spending ban, I think I need to calm down as my mojo has gotten rubbish cuz of too much stash. I think the less you have the more creative you are (in my case anyway lol)
Thanks for sharing your desk today, those flowers do look gorgeous!!!

Fab tags. Love making those flowers myself and decided I need some Wendy Vechi stamps for them. Your tags are lovely and the flowers just add to them.
Am going to stop hopping around for a short while and do some creating as I am living in a shop at the moment. Well, sort of. Take care and thanks for the peek.

Hi Karen,thanks for popping over. Love your tags and such organised preparation on your desk. I got the heat mat from TK Max it was reduced to £3.99 and I its made by Circulon and its rubbery. You could put your melt pot or anything that gets hot on it. I think most people use it for their pans !! but being a crafter I had other uses for it. Lol:) JO.xxx**19**
